Review: BOOP! THE MUSICAL Pre-Broadway World Premiere Presented By Broadway In Chicago
Chicago: December 07, 2023

Betty Boop is making her stage debut...and thanks to Jasmine Amy Rogers in the role, she’s making a real star turn. I truly didn’t know what to expect when BOOP! THE MUSICAL was announced. How would a cartoon character featured primarily in animated shorts from 1930-1939 make her way into a 2023 musical? The answer ends up being a conventionally plotted, enjoyable visual wonder with some classic big musical numbers. BOOP! THE MUSICAL brings the bops and good vibes.

Review: A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS is a Warm Holiday Tonic
Palm Springs: December 07, 2023

What did our critic think of “A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS” A WARM HOLIDAY TONIC at Theatre 29?

Review: THE DRAGON KING'S DAUGHTER at Kennedy Center
Washington, DC: December 07, 2023

With very few exceptions, musical theatre writers that have attempted to write the book, music, and lyrics for their shows do not succeed. Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years is a rare example of one person successfully doing it all.

Review: RENT at Musical Theatre Southwest
Albuquerque: December 07, 2023

Just in time for the holidays, my favorite Christmas musical debuts in Albuquerque. Now, technically it’s not a “Christmas” show, but there’s enough references to holidays, family, cheer and community to make it a holiday show. Musical Theatre Southwest takes on the beloved and iconic show this month; if you miss it, you will most certainly have regrets.

Review: RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER JR. at Moorestown Theater Company
New Jersey: December 07, 2023

Heartwarming holiday classic RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER, JR. brought to life by the award-winning Moorestown Theater Company

Washington, DC: December 07, 2023

The Improvised Shakespeare Company provides a night of dazzling humor and wit.

Review: Evita Encore: Martin Almiron's Tour Across the Usa
Argentina: December 07, 2023

What did our critic think of EVITA ENCORE: MARTIN ALMIRON'S TOUR ACROSS THE USA at Tour?

Review: TINA at Kansas City Music Hall
Kansas City: December 07, 2023

The sheer spectacle of “Tina” is amazing.  Emphasizing the fact that Tina Turner was one of a kind, the gravely-voiced, sexy, full out singing style of Tina is so stressful on the performer’s voices, this show uses two actresses to play her on alternate evenings. 

Review: Ruff Knowledge by Camille Auer at Kanneltalo
Finland: December 07, 2023

I went to see Ruff Knowledge by Camille Auer at Kanneltalo 23.11. to its premiere, which was a part of Baltic Circle -festival. In their program it says the following:

Music Review: Brandi Burkhardt MERRY & BRIGHT Just Right For Christmas
CD/Books/DVDs: December 07, 2023

Singer-Songwriter Brandi Burkhardt makes a most engaging entry into the world of Christmas music.

Review: OLIVER!, Leeds Playhouse
UK / West End: December 07, 2023

Family show retains enough edge to honour its sources, providing thrills and spectacle and that wonderful, wonderful score

Review: Jason Henderson Charms Don't Tell Mama Audience With GETTING TO NOEL YOU
Cabaret: December 07, 2023

No Learning Annex lesson is this musical cabaret. It's interesting, funny, and original - like the man who wrote and performs it.

Review: THE NUTCRACKER, Royal Opera House
UK / West End: December 07, 2023

The world can often seem so grey at the moment, so any opportunity to step into the light is most welcome. There can be few festive shows that ignite such a sense of wonder and delight as the Royal Ballet’s The Nutcracker. If the festive season is all about tradition, then Peter Wright’s 1984 production, modelled on Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet, is exactly what any ballet lover wants to see.

Review: POTUS at Stray Cat Theatre
Phoenix: December 06, 2023

Selina Fillinger's POTUS, directed by Katie McFadzen, is fast-paced but leans too far into slapstick at the expense of nuance and its fuller potential at harpooning the patriarchy. At Stray Cat Theatre through December 16th.

Review: ELF: THE MUSICAL at The Belmont Theatre
Central Pennsylvania: December 06, 2023

Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at A Noise Within
Los Angeles: December 06, 2023

Fresh and glorious to behold, with bold, impressive stagecraft and truly innovative and imaginative costume design.  There are frequent moments of awe and breathtaking sprinkles of magic.  Although it feels off to me in some of its performance and art direction choices, this is a remarkable and stunningly visual production.
