Review: PRETTY WOMAN THE MUSICAL Plays Nashville's Tennessee Performing Arts Center T Photo Review: PRETTY WOMAN THE MUSICAL Plays Nashville's Tennessee Performing Arts Center Through Sunday, 10/02
by Jeffrey Ellis - Sep 28, 2022

Pretty Woman The Musical – the latest offering in the 2022-23 Broadway at TPAC Series – is one of those shows that almost defies explanation and proves even more difficult to review. (Case in point: I’ve rewritten that sentence 758 times in the past 22 hours and it’s still not “singing,” is it?) Pretty Woman The Musical is a pleasant enough diversion, entertaining even, but there is little in the show’s first act to convince most people that the 1990 rom com, which starred Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, needed to be transformed into a glitzy and glittering Broadway musical (a term we use loosely in this case), with Olivia Valli and Adam Pascal in the leading roles.

What did our critic think of PRETTY WOMAN, THE MUSICAL at Denver Center for the Performing Arts? Listen, If Julia Roberts is involved, I'm involved. But what in the world is Pretty Woman, The Musical? Having say through the show recently I can honestly say it felt like a fever dream with tits, ass, and Adam Pascal.

Review: Say 'Hell Yes!' to THE COLOR PURPLE at Broadway At Music Circus Photo Review: Say 'Hell Yes!' to THE COLOR PURPLE at Broadway At Music Circus
by Courtney Symes - Aug 24, 2022

For me, the end of summer in Sacramento is signaled by the same event every year-the last show of the Broadway at Music Circus season.  This summer’s end is particularly bittersweet, as it marks the finale of a return to the round after two years of being in the dark.  Fittingly, this show is the most powerful production of the summer.  The Color Purple is the last in what has been a remarkable season of unparalleled talent and delicate themes.  Based on Alice Walker’s 1982 novel and 1985 movie adaptation of the same name, The Color Purple opened on Broadway in 2005 and earned eleven Tony Award nominations.
