BWW Interview: Francesco Ricci parla di 'Dante Inferno'
by Francesco Vittorino - Jul 19, 2017

Mi era capitato qualche giorno fa di imbattermi nel trailer di uno spettacolo - firmato da Tiziano Puritani e Francesco Ricci - intitolato "Dante Inferno".

I testi (dal poco che ero riuscito a sentire) facevano la loro porca figura, le musiche erano dotate di un certo spessore e la componete visiva era degna di quella che avevo visto in spettacoli dal budget molto piu alto.

BWW Review: The "Hart" of Theater Beats for Peregrine's CHICAGO
by Kristen Morale - Aug 10, 2017

When the unconquerable Billy Flynn and the ensemble sing of that "old razzle dazzle," they sing of corruption and deceit - of wicked things turned into truth when presented in just the right light. Under the pretense of being decent in a world of easy exploitation and unremorseful women, Billy's smile is a falsity he doesn't care to hide - his performance as showy as the lights which illuminate the stage. Transforming the lives of the potentially dead murderesses of Chicago into a form of entertainment for the masses is manipulation at its core - it is just one of the reasons Kander and Ebb's Chicago has remained one of our favorite musicals for so long. Now, we can all be grateful for Peregrine Theatre Ensemble's current production of the longest running American musical in Broadway history, happening right in the heart of Provincetown. (more...)
