BWW Review: LES MISERABLES at Music Hall At Fair ParkBWW Review: LES MISERABLES at Music Hall At Fair Park
by Kyle Christopher West - Apr 29, 2018

Nearly two hundred years ago, a small, two-day revolution in Paris (The June Rebellion of 1832) brought together crowds of students and working-class French citizens who could no longer stay silent and were prepared to fight to the deaths over working wages and conditions. And, whether you're familiar with this story or not, there's never been a better time to 'hear the people sing' than in the exuberant revival tour of the Broadway staple, LES MISERABLES, now on stage at The Music Hall at Fair Park.

BWW REVIEW: The Goree All-Girl String Band Forges A Path To Freedom (And Audience's Hearts)BWW REVIEW: The Goree All-Girl String Band Forges A Path To Freedom (And Audience's Hearts)
by Victoria Ordin - Aug 6, 2017

One of five shows singled out as “ones to watch” at the prestigious 2017 New York Musical Festival festival, THE GOREE ALL-GIRL STRING BAND successfully couches a message about redemption through music in a consistently funny play about a female prison in Texas circa 1938. The true story of female inmates at Goree State Farm doesn't pull punches about racism, sexism, or the justice system. While the grim reality of incarceration (and potential sterilization) is ever-present, it is ultimately the humanity of these women “who've done bad” that emerges from Michael Bradley's well-plotted book and the fine acting of GOREE's ensemble, led by Lauren Patten (Fun Home).
