Review: The McCallum Theatre Hosts an Intimate Evening with Kristin Chenoweth


From the moment her iconic voice could be heard singing a gentle ballad version of 'Que Sera Sera' from off-stage the audience could feel that familiar warmth of authenticity fill the entire theatre.  A friend, an ally, a spiritual powerhouse of talent was about to enter. When the gorgeous 4'11' frame dressed in a navy blue sequin knee-length dress, and silver three-inch bejeweled platform heels walked into the spotlight she was greeted by thunderous applause. With every word she sang of the 1956 Doris Day hit it felt like a large invisible hand reached out and captured all 1,127 people in attendance; we gladly remained there for the duration of the evening.

Review: The Gamm's Deliciously Dark HANGMEN


The trouble with a Martin McDonagh play performed at The Gamm, is that it’s inevitably going to be too good.  McDonagh is a master of inky black comedy, and The Gamm have now presented five of his plays over the years, so it’s been fascinating to watch Gamm regulars find new places in the McDonagh-verse, and really lean into the sinister aspects of these plays.  However, for the person who has to write a review of this nearly-flawless show, it’s a somewhat daunting experience.  How do you describe a show so dark using only positive adjectives?  If McDonagh reads this review, will he dismiss it as hackneyed fluff?  Thankfully, he will never read this, so I can say unequivocally–this show is great, go see it.
