The award-winning smash hit Broadway musical based on Walt Disney’s classic animated film Beauty and the Beast returned for a limited run at the Fabulous Fox Theater Tuesday evening. The show will run only through Saturday, December 24, bringing its fairy tale magic to audiences young and old just in time for the holidays.
The Black Mirror Theatre Company has opened Becket’s Krapp’s Last Tape. The venue is an odd one for live theatre—a small letterpress print-shop. And the theatre company is a brand new one. That’s a tempting combination for me!
I’m a Christmas fan. Huge. Christmas music, Christmas movies, Christmas TV specials. Especially those that harken me (and tens millions of others) back to precious childhood memories.
This is the season for guilty pleasures, and one of mine is that Lexus of celebrity impersonation shows, "The Rat Pack Live at the Sands."
The outlines of the story are familiar: A socially ambitious mother pushes her daughter to make an advantageous marriage; the love of another young woman is threatened by religious differences.
Christmas in the tropics provides the St. Louis Actors' Studio with a charming alternative to the usual snowy cheer. But this is not just any tropical setting. It's the penal colony in French Guiana, and the date is 1910.
NTC Productions®, the Nebraska Theatre Caravan, is currently touring the country (their 33rd touring year) with the classic Christmas season production, A Christmas Carol. Originally a novella by Charles Dickens (first published in 1843), this musical adaption was written by Charles Jones, former NTC Executive Director. They recently stopped for a four-show run at the Fox Theatre, featuring a large cast and modest, yet very effective, set.
I know Hot L is an old chestnut of the theatre repertoire, but frankly I never got into it. Hot L Baltimore is a story about a hotel that is going to be demolished in a month and its several interesting tenants. But that’s exactly what was wrong with it. I felt there was too much and I wasn’t hooked by the plot or story line.
Countless numbers of us have grown up with Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. Their funny, scary, often outrageous shenanigans have been a staple of American literature, movies and theater for almost a century and a half.
Jesus would have hopped the ‘A’ Train to come watch this performance. Spectacular! Guirgis’ masterful story telling was obvious from the beginning. The play starts with Angel Cruz (Adam Flores) front center on his knees attempting to pray in a prison cell. And from there on out I was hooked.
