BWW Reviews: 'Can't Take Your Eyes Off' JERSEY BOYS at Hershey Theatre
by Marakay Rogers - Jan 29, 2015

When is a jukebox musical not a 'jukebox musical'? If anything, it's when the musical is by its subjects, when they're an integral part of putting the show together. If JERSEY BOYS were any less a jukebox musical, it would be the original band on stage talking about their story and giving a concert themselves. With music by band member and composer Bob Gaudio, lyrics by 'Fifth Season' Bob Crewe -- in short, with the music and lyrics by the band's songwriters, one of whom was a band member, and book by Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, JERSEY BOYS isn't as much a jukebox musical as it is a musical documentary of a hair-raising story that wasn't in the news at the time.

by Nyderah Williams - Jan 26, 2015

Black Lab Theatre's Houston premiere of Kim Rosenstock's TIGERS BE STILL is incredibly funny as it deals with the not so funny theme of depression. We've all had those days. You know which days.
