Review: ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE at Dutch Apple Dinner Theater
Central Pennsylvania: September 23, 2023

Escape to Margaritaville celebrates one last gasp of summer vibes.  It will be especially appreciated by Jimmy Buffet fans and Hawaiian shirt owners.  While you are at it, order a glass (or two) of the jalapeno-infused “Margarita Our Parents Warned Us About” to add some extra heat to your special evening. our critic think of ESCAPE TO MARGARITAVILLE at Dutch Apple Dinner Theater?

Nashville Children's Theatre's STRONG INSIDE Offers Emotional View of the Segregated South
Nashville: September 23, 2023

Thanks to Andrew Maraniss’ best-selling book Strong Inside – adapted for the stage by Tyrone L. Robinson – Wallace’s storied basketball career in the Southeastern Conference and the details of his upbringing in the segregated South are now brought vividly to life onstage in a history-making production from NCT, the third-oldest theater for younger audiences in the United States. Founded in 1931 by members of the Junior League of Nashville, there can be no denying that NCT, like its hometown itself and one of its favorite sons (Wallace), has been reflective of the growing diversity of its people and the evolution of its cultural and educational institutions.

UK / West End: September 23, 2023

What JRR Tolkien would have thought of Peter Jackson’s Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers is anyone’s guess but one suspects that the Oxford don would rather have enjoyed the live concert treatment at the Royal Albert Hall.

Review: Amanda McBroom SUCH GOOD FRIENDS At Birdland Such Good Storytelling
Cabaret: September 23, 2023

Review: MISERY at Dolphin Theatre, Auckland
New Zealand: September 23, 2023

What did our critic think of MISERY at Dolphin Theatre, Auckland?

UK / West End: September 23, 2023

Directed by Roy Alexander Weise, the project is structurally disruptive but ultimately too meandering and overlong. A narrator (Rochelle Rose) lays the tropes bare with bitter observations. She amplifies the intentional faux pas, but the framework gets a bit stodgy by the second round of narrative repetition. As Kim (Mei Mac in brilliant form) is stuck in a cycle of psychological abuse and violence at the hands of her white love interest (Tom Weston-Jones), Lee makes her point brutally and effectively with radical and intransigent denunciations of the treatment of Asian characters.

Sacramento: September 22, 2023

One thing that stands out about Sacramento is its prolific and varied arts community. There is truly something for everyone and, if you’re eclectically inclined, Big Idea Theatre is the place for you. Their performance selections vary, but each is unique, quirky, and thought-provoking. The current offering is no less original, although decidedly more of a mouthful. Halley Feiffer’s extra-long title, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Gynecologic Oncology Unit at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center of New York City, is somewhat of a misnomer, as the odd things all happen in one room of the cancer center.

Interview: Joanna A. Jones Talks About Bringing The Infamous Fraulein Sally Bowles To Life in CABARET at The Old Globe
San Diego: September 22, 2023

iNTERVIEW WITH Joanna A. Jones WHO plays the iconic “toast of Mayfair,  Fraulein Sally Bowles!”  in CABARET playing at the Old Globe through October 15th.  Joanna talks about the new approach to the show and Sally, and one of her favorite moments where she gets to float above the stage.

Review: Thunderous LES MISERABLES Tour Storms Back into Segerstrom Center
Los Angeles: September 22, 2023

Don't let the show's overall over-the-top theatrics dissuade you from experiencing this visually-stunning, showstopper-filled production which continues at Segerstrom Center through October 1. A boisterous, grandiose spectacle of overtly expressed emotions and overtly belted show tunes, LES MISÉRABLES remains as amplified as it has always been.

Review: NUNSENSE At SLO Repertory Theatre
Santa Barbara: September 22, 2023

'Nunsense,' now playing at SLO Rep, delivers an evening of heavenly harmonies and gentle comedy to tempt even novice theater-goers. 

Review: EN LYKKELIG SLUTNING at Aarhus Teater
Denmark: September 22, 2023

'En lykkelig slutning' er en af de forestillinger, man skal opleve (hvis man tør). Lad dig rive med, bliv rykket rundt og gå fra Aarhus Teater med tanker at reflektere over!

Review: THE CRUCIBLE At Theatre Memphis
Memphis: September 22, 2023

The word crucible is not a term often used in everyday language. In fact, it seems to only be used when referencing Arthur Miller’s classic 1953 play, THE CRUCIBLE. But, for those not familiar with the story itself, the term means “a severe test.”

Review: THE BOOK OF MORMON at Broadway San Diego
San Diego: September 22, 2023

The cast of THE BOOK OF MORMON is here to say “Hello” at Broadway San Diego through September 24th.  As outrageous as ever, but with some timely but minimal updates this show about some mismatched missionaries is still an energetic, and entertaining road trip show about faith and friendship.

Review: Zachary Levi's Solo Concert Debut Dazzled at FanX
Salt Lake City: September 22, 2023

Hollywood and Broadway star Zachary Levi made his solo concert debut on Thursday, September 21, dazzling the sold-out crowd of fans in Salt Lake City with swagger and a set of big band favorites titled COME DANCE WITH ME: AN EVENING OF SWINGING HITS.

Seattle: September 22, 2023

Author Ken Ludwig has certainly had a prolific career filled with some wonderful gems, “Crazy for You”, “Lend Me a Tenor”, and “Moon Over Buffalo” to name just a few. So, Village Theatre’s new production of his 2017 work, “Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood” sounds like a rollicking good time. Unfortunately, this new retelling of a classic adventure meanders about awkwardly not knowing what it wants to be. And that’s just one of the two big problems of a production that just laid there hoping the audience would find something funny in it.
