BWW Review: R.R.R.E.D. Warns of Genetic Extinction of Redheads
by Michael Dale - Sep 7, 2018

There are times in musical theatre when a talented cast performing their hearts out can make questionable material not only endurable, but even somewhat enjoyable. Sadly, this is not the case with R.R.R.E.D., which, while given a game try by a quartet of enthusiastic belters displaying ample showbiz pizzazz, begins with a potentially interesting idea and never goes anywhere with it.

BWW Review: THE CUBAN AND THE REDHEAD at Pegasus Theatre
by Kyle Christopher West - Sep 24, 2018

BWW Review: Chase Miller's Star Burns Bright in Chaffin's Barn's ELF THE MUSICAL
by Jeffrey Ellis - Nov 16, 2018

Throughout the past year, I've written quite often about Nashville's Chase Miller and his tremendous talents, remarkable stage presence and startling ability to successfully morph from one character to another completely unlike the first (or any to follow). Miller is rather insanely talented and any director worth her or his salt would be deliriously happy to have the serious triple threat in any show on their drawing board. (more...)

BWW Review: THE PSYCHIC Offers Plenty of Comedy, Mystery, Murder and Mayhem
by Shari Barrett - Aug 28, 2018

Struggling to pay the rent, Adam (Brian Patrick Roach) has put up a sign offering "Psychic Readings $25" to save himself from being thrown out on the street.

From the beginning, it was pretty clear to me that the visitors would turn out to be characters being born in Adam's laptop, very stereotypical of the types of people they were playing. But it was easy to play along and watch the story in his mind play out onstage. (more...)
