by A.A. Cristi - Mar 1, 2018

She's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! During SPRING BREAK ONLY, Main Street Theater is presenting Junie B. Jones Is Not a Crook!  Why is Junie B. such a favorite?  "She is such a quirky, witty and honest little girl!" says MST Theater for Youth Producing Director Vivienne M. St. John.  "Junie really wants to be good and do the right thing, but she always seems to land herself in to trouble. Kids love her because they can relate to her.  Adults relate to her because while some of the things she says can be trying, she reminds them of the children in their lives.  Junie brings a chuckle and a smile to all who read her stories or see her live on our stage!"

BWW Reviews: Fort Bend Theatre's JEKYLL & HYDE Thrills and Chills
by David Clarke - Nov 5, 2013

Robert Louis Stevenson's novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde has long enthralled readers. The exploration of man's internal struggle to suppress his base animal instincts in favor of society's expected propriety in addition to the examination of good and evil simply fascinates audiences. Similarly, JEKYLL & HYDE, a musical adaptation of the novel by Frank Wildhorn and Leslie Bricusse, has been appealing to audiences since its 1990 Houston World Premiere. Currently, Fort Bend Theatre is producing the musical with dazzling pizzazz despite their shoestring budget and the limitations of community theatre.

BWW Reviews: Zack's Mac Shack's SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD Is Electrifying
by David Clarke - Sep 24, 2013

This past weekend, I had the distinct pleasure of discovering the Greater Houston Area's best kept secret. Ever since The Masquerade Theatre announced they were permanently closing on April 27, 2012, I have been going through Masquerade withdrawals. Other theatre groups, namely Michael J. Ross' Music Box Musicals among others, have sprung up in their absence and offer musical productions of the quality and caliber to fill the void that was left. As good as these productions are, they just aren't the same. Of course, Sunday's closing performance of Jason Robert Brown's SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD at The Masquerade Theatre's Artistic Director Phillip Duggins' Zack's Mac Shack, a new restaurant and cabaret performance space, in Galveston, Texas wasn't the same either, but it was pretty close.

BWW Reviews: Island ETC's YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN is Frolicking, Frivolous, and Entertaining
by David Clarke - Jul 29, 2013

As usual, the summer is chockfull of mind numbing entertainment. Hollywood releases action packed blockbusters. Television channels flood the airwaves with brainless reality shows and thinly written dramas. Everywhere you turn, there are offerings of entertainment for the sake of entertainment. Summer musicals are no exception, and Galveston's Island East-End Theatre Company (ETC) is presenting Mel Brook's glitzy, splashy musical YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN to pad out this summer. Following the wild success of THE PRODUCERS, Mel Brooks reassembled his creative team and jumped back into the saddle of creating theatrical musicals. YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN had it's pre-Broadway try-out in Seattle in 2007, ran on Broadway from November 8, 2007 through January 4, 2009, and has had enjoyed two successful national tours across the United States.
