BWW Review: OKC Broadway Presents The National Tour Of THE LITTLE MERMAID At The Civic Center Music HallBWW Review: OKC Broadway Presents The National Tour Of THE LITTLE MERMAID At The Civic Center Music Hall
by Ronn Burton - Sep 11, 2017

Okay, let's just get real for a moment: if one approaches this show as an adult and compares it with the canon of theatrical literature, this a production which often falls flat. However, in comparison to average children's entertainment (which is clearly the producers' targeted demographic) it holds up well. Your average elementary aged kid will be thoroughly and utterly charmed. But the parents who brought them? That might be a different story. The performers are all supremely talented, with dozens of Broadway shows to their credit. Even if I felt they might have been instructed to push every moment, they still allow their glorious voices to shine through. While it doesn't run in the same league as the classic Disney films, this production does its job: providing fluffy entertainment for an evening out after school, getting through everything as quickly as possible to make sure the kids get back home in bed to be ready for school tomorrow.

BWW Review: Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID Goes Under The Sea at Wolf TrapBWW Review: Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID Goes Under The Sea at Wolf Trap
by Keith Tittermary - Jun 30, 2017

Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman made their mark with the early Disney musicals, and always included a sense of "home" and "belonging". As much as Disney's The Little Mermaid is a princess-story aimed at the pre-teen audience, it also has a deeper message of being a fish out of water, only in Ariel's case she is a fish in water who doesn't belong.

Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group's (ATEG) Manila production of the 2015 Tonyİ Best Musical FUN HOME opens and unravels with no fanfare: a minimalist set, a meager ensemble of ten actors, musical numbers that do not play to spectacular choreography and exploding lights, and a venue so small the performers and spectators are actually within an awkward spitting distance.

BWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La MiradaBWW Review: Musical HUNCHBACK On Top of the World at La Mirada
by Don Grigware - Sep 19, 2016

Victor Hugo's monumental romantic/gothic novel The Hunchback of Notre Dame, published in 1831, centers in, around and on top of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. So does the new musical of the same name written by Peter Parnell, Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken, which received its U.S. premiere at La Jolla Playhouse in 2014 and is currently receiving its Los Angeles premiere at La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts. Stephen Gifford's set replete with stained glass windows, balcony and overhanging bells is scaled down from the original but still impressive and pulls you in effectively to another world, the ethereal realm of a higher power. Catholic boy that I am, every kyrie eleison exuded by the resounding chorus moved me to tears. (more...)
