BWW Reviews: Silly Fun Rules SHREK The Musical
by Michael L. Quintos - Oct 6, 2011

Like a warm Snuggie on a cold winter night or a decadent dessert to a calorie counter, sometimes we all just want to cater to our own basest pleasure centers that simply crave comforting, entertaining shows full of good ol' plain, silly fun. This same idea explains why macaroni and cheese makes for a great combo... why the excitingly mindless 'Summer Movie' was invented... and why SHREK THE MUSICAL made me laugh for most of its two-and-a-half-hour running time. Now playing at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts through October 16, this amusing, big-kid-friendly musical based on the popular 2001 DreamWorks animated film delivers the laughs not with beguiling snark but, rather, with fart battles, cheeky sight gags, and a sassy attitude that intermittently seeks to distract you from its flaws. Entertaining, yes, but hardly groundbreaking.

BWW Reviews: SHREK Soars at Broadway San Jose Now Thru September 25th
by Linda Hodges - Sep 23, 2011

The national tour of "Shrek the Musical," in all its gassy green glory, opened Broadway San Jose's new season and captivated the audience from start to finish. Hilariously funny and heart-warming, "Shrek's" musical message about friendship, love and acceptance, delivered with the story's trademark unconventional quirkiness, soared.

BWW Reviews: Timelessly Enchanting BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Returns to LA
by Don Grigware - Mar 11, 2011

'Tale as old as time' nails the complex simplicity of Beauty and the Beast the quintessential story of true love, the most difficult to obtain and sustain. Disney's adaptation of the fairy tale with its sweepingly imaginative spectacle wins over even the hardest of hearts. The animated film was such a tremendous hit in 1991 that it was adapted for the stage in 1994 with new songs by Tim Rice added to the Academy Award-winning movie score originally written by deceased Howard Ashman. It ran worldwide until 2007 and proves undoubtedly that fairy tales retain a popularity that never dies. The current revival tour of Beauty and the Beast, now at the Pantages until March 27, is every bit as glorious, delectable and elegant as the original.

BWW Reviews: BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Resurfaces at OCPAC
by Michael L. Quintos - Nov 19, 2010

Based on the 1991 hit movie musical masterpiece--the first animated feature film to ever score a Best Picture Oscar¬ģ nomination--Disney's BEAUTY AND THE BEAST went on to become a hit stage musical as well, ushering a new, successful theatrical arm for the studio. That original 1994 Broadway production eventually garnered nine Tony Award nominations and played on for more than 5,000 performances before finally closing in 2007. Now revived in a newer, noticeably less extravagant touring production mounted by NETworks Presentations (on stage this week at the Orange County Performing Arts Center through November 21), the show's latest incarnation, despite its lively characters and still memorable music, feels less magical than its more Disney-esque origins.

Beauty and the Beast Enchants Durham Through June 13
by BWW News Desk - Jun 12, 2010

Tuesday night, hundreds of children were enchanted by the touring production of Beauty and the Beast, now playing at the Durham Performing Arts Center through Sunday, June 13. As I wandered through the lobby before the show and during intermission, I often had to carefully sidestep a tiny Belle in requisite yellow ball gown and tiara. What was most remarkable though was how enchanted the adults were, myself included.
