by Pati Buehler - Aug 15, 2023

What's not to like about a clever, likeable scoundrel/scammer who captures a town through song and dance and eventually wins over fair maiden?

Review: Hale Centre Theatre's World Premiere of HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN IN NEW YORK is Disarmingly Charming
by Tyler Hinton - May 14, 2023

The world premiere of HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN IN NEW YORK on Hale Centre Theatre’s Jewel Box Stage is a disarmingly charming throwback to the Golden Age musical. Commissioned by the estate of Frank Loesser (GUYS AND DOLLS, HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT EVEN TRYING), it features the Oscar-nominated score of the 1952 film HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSEN and other trunk songs.

Interview: Director Paula Kelley On Neil Simon's LITTLE ME Musical At Manhattan Beach Community Church Theater
by Shari Barrett - Mar 13, 2023

The soon-to-open production of the Neil Simon musical Little Me at Manhattan Beach Community Church Theater (MBCC), the longest running theater in the South Bay since 1956, is directed by Paula Kelley with choreography by Angela Asch. Originally scheduled to open in the Spring of 2020, I decided to speak with the director about the production’s three-year delay and how she envisions presenting a musical full of comic vignettes featuring such a large cast, especially since it was written specifically for Sid Caesar to play multiple roles as all the heroine’s husbands and lovers.

Interview: Cirque du Soleil's Stefan Haves, Creator and Director of SHAMBLES
by Shari Barrett - Dec 7, 2022

The Actors' Gang is excited to present their family friendly holiday show, Shambles, an unbridled concoction of seasonal charm and sassy cunning all rolled up in a cirque-infused panto, blurring the lines between audience and performers. When I read that this immersive experience will drop theater goers into a 60's NASA holiday party complete with alien abductions, ugly Christmas sweaters, and free-flowing champagne offered as theatergoers meander through curated rooms of wonder, I knew I had to speak with the production's creator and director, Cirque du Soleil's Stefan Haves about his vision to bring such fun family fare to the stage.

Review: An Old-Fashioned Sing-Off Celebrates ANGEL BLUE at Geffen Hall's 2022 Richard Tucker Gala
by Richard Sasanow - Nov 15, 2022

Award-winner Angel Blue started off the proceedings at the Richard Tucker Gala (after Barry Tucker’s usual introduction/ode to his father, the great tenor) with a bang: Puccini’s justly famous aria “Vissi d’arte” from TOSCA. For those of us who’ve only heard her as Bess in Gershwin’s PORGY & BESS at the Met, it was a revelation to hear her lush, velvety voice raise the rafters on the hall, with no warm up.

BOEING BOEING Comes to New London Barn Playhouse

Mark Camoletti's Boeing Boeing flies us back in time with a story about a bachelor, three airline hostesses, and a lot of love, lust, and lies!

Review: HAIRSPRAY at Fort Wayne Summer Music Theatre is a toe-tapping good time
by Tara Olivero - Jul 11, 2022

What did our critic think of HAIRSPRAY at Fort Wayne Summer Music Theatre? The Indiana Music Theatre Foundation is back again with a toe-tapping, fun-filled production of HAIRSPRAY, performed by the Fort Wayne Summer Music Theatre as part of this year's Three Rivers Festival. After last summer's stunning production of LES MISERABLES, I had high expectations for HAIRSPRAY, and I'm happy to report that it did not disappoint.

BWW Review: A FUNNY THING HAPPENED ON THE WAY TO THE FORUM at Desert Theatricals At Rancho Mirage Amphitheater
by Kay Kudukis - Apr 19, 2022

Ah, the old musicals, when PC didn't exist and, as the Cole Porter song says, Anything Goes. And so it went with the final production (with presenting partner The City of Rancho Mirage) of Desert Theatrical's 2021/2022 season A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, a tale about a slave named Pseudolus (Gilmore Rizzo) trying to win his freedom by helping his young master Hero (Matthew Tucker) be with the young woman he loves, Philia (Emily Unnasch), who he has only seen through the window of the brothel next door. Yes, she is a courtesan, but she's a virgin (of course she is).
