BWW Review: THE MUSIC MAN at Goodspeed Opera HouseBWW Review: THE MUSIC MAN at Goodspeed Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - May 12, 2019

There are some musicals that simply epitomize the genre. You know the ones - the shows where you have lost count how many times you have seen them, either on Broadway, on tour, or at your local theatre. They are like a part of the family - the favorite uncle or aunt that you are happy to see whenever you are together. One of these shows for me is Meredith Willson's THE MUSIC MAN, the classic that serves as a near-perfect representation of American Musical Theatre. So, it is with excitement, and a bit of trepidation (how will this production fare with all the others in my memory?) that I went to see Goodspeed Musicals latest production. I am thrilled to say that the play feels as fresh as the day it premiered, is as lovely as the "bells on the hill" that feature in one of its most iconic songs, and serves as a brilliant opening to the new season at the Goodspeed Opera House.

BWW Review: A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2 at TheaterWorksBWW Review: A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2 at TheaterWorks
by Joseph Harrison - Feb 3, 2019

Sequels are an interesting lot. For every one that turns out to be better than the original (e.g., Star Trek II: Wrath of Khan, Godfather, Part II) there are many more that just don't cut it. But that doesn't stop people from wanting to tell the next part of a familiar or popular tale. In theatre, we haven't seen the same volume of sequels as in popular film, and those that have been made have usually been met with lukewarm reaction. But sometimes there is just something about an unfinished story that causes writers to pick up the pen and put their own twist on a tale. Such is the case with A DOLL'S HOUSE, PART 2, Lucas Hnath's sequel to the groundbreaking classic 1879 play by Henrik Ibsen which is currently onstage at TheaterWorks in Hartford. (more...)
