Anatomy of a Showtune: The Life and Times of BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
by Alexa Criscitiello - Sep 24, 2016

It all starts very simple. A steady piano, a lilting flute. A young woman descending a staircase in the ballgown of every little girl's dreams, meeting her intended at the base. They beam at one another; she curtsies, he bows. As the iconic voice of Angela Lansbury enters the equation through an enchanted teapot, infusing the sequence with warmth and wisdom, the woman and her very unlikely suitor enter the ballroom. Finally having learned to ignore their differences, the two sway and twirl their way into happily ever after. (more...)

BWW Review: GOAT's JEKYLL & HYDE Is Sexy, but Safe High-Quality Theatre
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 21, 2016

Throughout all of human history, there has been something sexy and intoxicating about the fine line between good and evil; the dangerous desire to understand it, to conquer it, to control it. The Greater Orlando Actors' Theatre production of the musical JEKYLL & HYDE, running through Sunday, September 25th at the home of Central Florida Community Arts, ably captures the alluring sexuality of this temptation, but is never able to realize the innate danger that accompanies it.

BWW Review: Pewitt's Star Turn Electrifies Keeton Theatre's ANNIE GET YOUR GUN
by Jeffrey Ellis - Oct 7, 2016

There's something about Tonya Pewitt, a certain, almost indefinable, something that makes her an ideal musical theater leading lady (perhaps, we admit, that's a dated term in these politically correct times – we are, after all, in the 21st century and the election of the first woman president of the United States seems imminent – but in regard to Ms. Pewitt, we use the term affectionately, respectfully and even reverently), attributes that she has accumulated, if you will, in a lifetime spent as a fan of classic Broadway and film musicals. She's charming and oh-so-engaging, beautifully alive onstage in a way only great musical theater stars can be when the follow spot hits them upon their first entrance. (more...)

BWW Blog: Miranda Jackel - Broadway and Fitness Join Forces at Flywheel!
by Guest Blogger: Miranda Jackel - Oct 21, 2016

So, I like to eat. Like, a lot. Ok, actually, I'm not going to beat around the bush: I'M LITERALLY OBSESSED WITH FOOD...which means that I have to work out. (I swear this relates to theater, don't give up on me right away.) For years, I despised exercise, and I was absolutely horrible at it (not that I'm so great now, but I'm a lot better). After years of feeling a shiver down my spine at the thought of working out, I've finally started to enjoy it thanks to Flywheel Sports, an amazing chain of indoor cycling studios. Flywheel is the perfect place for theater geeks looking to break a sweat because almost all of the teachers there HAVE BACKGROUNDS IN THEATER!!! SQUAAADDD!!! (more...)

by Matthew Blank - Jun 13, 2017

The New York cabaret scene has found itself a new star, whether or not anyone was asking for it. Broadway album designer and social media demagog Robbie Rozelle, who has previously created solo shows for Melissa Errico and Kate Baldwin, decided it was finally Robbie's Turn and brought us SONGS FROM INSIDE MY LOCKER. When he regally ascended to the stage at Feinstein's/54 Below on June 9 as though he were the goddamn mayor's wife, it became immediately evident that this was a man set to lay it all out there for the enjoyment of the masses.

by Michael Dale - Jul 31, 2017

Connoisseurs of American musical theatre wishing to make a point about the genre's ability to dramatize even the most unlikely of subjects often cite examples like SWEENEY TODD's vengeful barber on a killing spree or THE PAJAMA GAME's labor/management dispute, but bookwriter/lyricist/composer Kirsten Childs may have topped them all in 2000 when Playwrights Horizons premiered THE BUBBLY BLACK GIRL SHEDS HER CHAMELEON SKIN.

BWW Review: Tracie Thoms Takes the Soulful Route in Feinstein's/54 Below Debut
by Casey Mink - Jan 20, 2017

For her two-show debut engagement at Feinstein's/54 Below, the first of which took place on January 11, Tracie Thoms's set list was surprisingly short. In fact, on paper, it looked as though the concert might not even fill an entire hour. It speaks, then, to her performative nature as an equal parts entertainer-singer, that the show actually lasted for a full 90 minutes. (more...)
