BWW Review: JAGGED LITTLE PILL National Tour, DPAC by Nicole Ackman - Mar 1, 2023

The problem with jukebox musicals is that the music they use often takes away from the story that they're telling. It's not an issue with a show like MAMMA MIA, in which the plot is so light that the music complements it.

Review: A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, Almeida Theatre by Cindy Marcolina - Jan 13, 2023

This is A Streetcar Named Desire for a new generation. It’s sexy and dangerously seductive, but doesn’t fail to have a firm and uncompromising stance on domestic violence. We’re repulsed by Stanley’s antics, then by Mitch’s. Frecknall’s Streetcar is unmistakably feminist and feminine. She hones Blanche and Stella’s relationship, presenting them in all their dignity and flaws, building a sisterhood marred by the needs and threats of the time.
