BWW Review: Ogunquit's SEVEN BRIDES Offers Sweetness and Smiles
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Sep 16, 2016

One of the most popular movie musicals adapted for the stage, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers has enjoyed several notable regional productions in the past few seasons, and the Ogunquit Playhouse's current staging demonstrates once again the nostalgic appeal of this sweet and folksy romantic tale set in America's pioneer days. The Kasha/Landay/Mercer/DePaul/Hirschhorn 1954 movie musical based on a Stephen Vincent Benet story, though it proved a disappointment when first adapted for the musical theatre stage in 1982, seems in the turbulent first decades of the 21st century to have struck chords in audiences who may hunger for the innocence and vibrant energy at its core.

BWW Review: ANNIE Brings Her Smile To The National Theatre
by Ellen Burns - Mar 17, 2016

That perennially adorable optimist Annie, and her fellow orphans have landed at Washington's National Theatre, and they're bringing the cute. Seriously folks, the show has real dogs, talented kids, a heartwarming story, and songs you know well (whether you like them or not might be another issue, of course). There's an impressive Beowulf Boritt set that makes good use of the height of the National's stage, and frequent set changes, refreshing for a touring production (which are often more spare for logistical reasons). And it's always a treat to have a live orchestra, a true overture and Act II musical introduction, and a troupe of excellent voices. (more...)

BWW Review: ANNIE at Providence Performing Arts Center
by Katelyn Corp - Dec 31, 2015

Proudly boasted as 'The World's Best-Loved Musical', Annie is a show most of us can say we've seen brought to life at least once. For this reviewer, the 1982 film adaptation of Annie was an early eye-opening introduction to the world of musical theater and the likes of legends such as Carol Burnett, Tim Curry, and Bernadette Peters. While countless productions have made their way to stages and screens around the world over the years, Annie still has a tight grip on our hearts. (more...)
