Hot off the success of Les Misérables, the creative team of Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil created another war musical: Miss Saigon. Loosely based on the opera Madame Butterfly, Miss Saigon is an epic romance set right before the end of and three years after the Vietnam War. While the musical ultimately lost the 'Best New Musical' Tony to 'The Will Rogers Follies' in 1991, when done properly, it remains one of Broadway's greatest spectacles, something that this production has absolutely taken to heart.

Chances are, as America is an increasing book-abhorrent culture, most folks familiar with THE WIZARD OF OZ know only of the 1939 Judy Garland film, versus author L. Frank Baum's children's 1900 book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. While the book and the film are fairly well aligned as children's entertainment, author Gregory Maguire's 1995 spin on the story, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West is most definitely for the adults. Political upheaval, adultery, multiple murders, family dysfunction, betrayal, it's downright Shakespearean. All three serve as fantastical fodder for Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman's Broadway production of Wicked, a sort of Oz-ian 'Odd Couple,' were Neil Simon a fan of J.R.R. Tolkein and J. K. Rowling: 'On Ozmember the 13th, Elphaba was asked to remove herself from her place of residence; that request came from her father. Deep down, she believed he was right, but knew that someday she would return. With nowhere else to go, she appeared at university and meets Galinda, fresh off an off-Broadway run of LEGALLY BLONDE. Can two strange women share a dorm room together without driving each other crazy?'

HAMLET THE ROCK MUSICAL with book, music and lyrics by Cliff Jones, with additional music and lyrics by Craig Fair, has undergone a few incarnations since its Broadway run in the late 70s. The launch of a re-imagined 21st Century version, produced by David Carver Music, magnificently directed by Bill Castellino, with conductor Doug Overhamer's music direction and choreography by Janet Roston, certainly proves there's something still rockin' in Denmark! And even those not familiar with the Shakespeare's classic tragedy will be able to understand the story, performed as a sung-through musical with enough heartfelt emotions on display to leave no doubt as to how and why the characters interact with one another to mostly bad results.

James (The Book of Mormon) sat down with Ilana and shared stories of growing up in a small suburb in New Jersey and feeling like no one else looked like her and how the unexpected reaction to a solo she sang in kindergarten changed her life forever . Nikki opens up about how the loss of her father changed her so deeply at a very young age and that time she was in London and got a call asking if she might be able to take over in the London production of Mormon -that night- even though she had been out of the Broadway production for quite a while. This is an actress who takes on huge challenges and never stops working on her craft.

The time is 2008, the place Detroit...this and more sets the stage for a hard hitting, knockout Tour de Force that chills you to the bone. Dominique Morisseau's Skeleton Crew is a searing, eye opening look into the workforce division between blue-collar and white-collar and what might happen when the division of power crosses the line. I think director L. Peter Callender sums it up best in his director's notes by saying, 'Dominique Morisseau's 'Detroit Project' plays: DETROIT '67, PARADISE BLUE, and SKELETON CREW, not unlike August Wilson's 'Century Cycle' or Shakespeare's History plays, offer a sharply focused, raw, sometimes harsh, always heart-wrenching, beautifully penned look at the rigors of survival when driven souls must make high stakes, life or death choices. Dreams, hope, despair, mystery and secrets all fill the hearts and minds of her characters in the poetic and humorous Skeleton Crew.' The tight knit ensemble of four of the finest actors to hit the stage in some time do Morisseau's words justice and do so with gusto. From the moment the music is heard, to the first words spoke you are gripping on every breathtaking moment in this top-notch performance, that left you winded and exaspirated in all the best ways possible. The chill left down my spine from this show still lingers even days later.

Il musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS ha debuttato a Chicago nel 2001 e la sua prima in un Teatro Off-Broadway risale al 2002. Più recentemente nel 20013 un acclamato revival sempre Off-Broadway, lo ha riportato in auge tanto da meritare nel 2014 una trasposizione cinematografica con Anna Kendricks e Jeremy Jordan nei ruoli dei due innamorati/sposi/divorziati. Arriva in Italia con la traduzione di Daniele Adriani al Teatro Don Mario Torregrossa. La trama si svolge attorno ai 5 anni di vita di una coppia in un intrigante e inusuale percorso temporale agli opposti. La giovane Cathy, attrice in cerca di affermazione, inizia a raccontare la loro relazione dalla sua fine, mentre Jaime, giovane scrittore in brillante ascesa, la racconta dal loro primo incontro: in scena i due interagiscono in un unico duetto al momento della proposta di matrimonio per poi proseguire la narrazione nelle due direzioni temporali contrapposte. Nel finale scopriamo lui nel momento dell'addio mentre lei nel percorso inverso narra il loro primo incontro. L'autore e compositore Jason Robert Brown (al suo attivo 11 Tony Awards per questo musical ma anche per gli altri sui lavori, Parade del 1999 e The bridges of Madison County del 2014) oltre alla brillante idea di formulare il racconto con questo doppio percorso agli antipodi, incanta lo spettatore con la piacevolezza e complessità di una partitura che non annoia mai neanche nei momenti più cupi del racconto. Il crescendo di lei dal triste al felice, antitetico a quello di lui dal felice al triste è trattato con un equilibrio perfetto in ogni momento della narrazione.
