The 101 Greatest Showtunes from 1920-2020 Photo The 101 Greatest Showtunes from 1920-2020
by Peter Nason - Mar 19, 2020

How do we make a list of the 101 greatest show tunes from the past 100 years without bias? That's certainly a near-impossible mountain to climb, because even some forms of biases, knowledgeable judgments, are key when doing a task like this. But we need to make it as objective as possible when dealing with something so subjective.

BWW Reviews: Circuit Playhouse Remembers THE FANTASTICKS
by Joseph Baker - Oct 13, 2014

Just a few weeks ago I was dodging a falling chandelier at the Orpheum's staging of PHANTOM OF THE OPERA; at the 'Phantom Event' held prior to the play, I was reminded of all the physical (as well as fiscal) requirements for properly staging this production. I kept thinking, 'How many small, financially strapped towns would breathe a sigh of relief if the proceeds from such a production were to come their way?' Well, that's one extreme of theatre. Tonight I was exposed to the opposite; Circuit Playhouse's production of Harvey Schmidt and Tom Jones' allegorical THE FANTASTICKS reminded me of Thornton Wilder's minimalism in the staging of OUR TOWN. If musicals like PHANTOM and LES MISERABLES are the 'central air' of theatre, THE FANTASTICKS is rather like a quaint little oscillating fan. Yet, its breeze can be refreshing.

BWW CD Reviews: Masterworks Broadway's ED AMES ON BROADWAY is Simply Nostalgia
by David Clarke - Aug 1, 2014

As the saying goes, "what's old is new again," and it seems that we cannot get enough of the 1960s these days.

Now, with Masterworks Broadway recent release, this entirely forgotten gem is seeing the light of day again.
