I have a list of movies that should not have been made into stage musicals. I haven't seen the movie of “Dirty Dancing,” but my friends who were at the opening of the stage version at the Fox and have seen the movie told me that the stage version is very true to the movie. Maybe too true. Which is why I might add it to my list.

This is the summer of Jack White. The 39-year-old guitar virtuoso, singer, songwriter, producer and all-around Renaissance man has been nearly inescapable since the June release of his second solo album, "Lazaretto."

Off to see the digitally enhanced Wizard

Turning movies into musical theatre has been a popular pastime for many years now. No surprise, then, that there have been multiple attempts to bring the much-loved 1939 film “The Wizard of Oz” to the musical stage. With all those great Harold Arlen and “Yip” Harburg songs, after all, it’s almost a musical to begin with.

As far as this Broadway fan is concerned, it doesn't get much better than classic Andrew Lloyd Weber, except maybe when he's paired with lyricist Tim Rice. Their very first collaboration, the exuberant classic "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," returned to the Fox last night for a two week run, directed and choreographed by Tony® Award-winner Andy Blankenbuehler.

"Elf," the musical based on the 2003 movie of the same name, is cute the way snow is damp. It's sentimental the way an ice-covered road is slippery. It's heart-warming the way "The Little Drummer Boy" and that damn Christmas version of Pachelbel's "Canon in D" are annoying. And it's so family-friendly it made my teeth hurt.

I Loved it, Yeah, Yeah Yeah

Recently the Fabulous Fox Theatre was set to rocking for two performances of "Rain: A Tribute to The Beatles;" a two-hour homage to the Fab Four and dozens of the songs with which they revolutionized popular music.

“As I always say, if it’s not ‘baroque’, don’t fix it,” says Cogsworth the clock of the neoclassical architecture of the castle in “Beauty and the Beast” the musical. It’s a play on words from an old saying that can also be applied to the classic Disney fairy tale.

'Anything Goes' at the Fox is a winner

Cole Porter’s 1934 hit “Anything Goes” has undergone three major revivals, each one of which involved significant alternations in the script and score. The latest, produced for New York’s Roundabout Theatre in 2011, is the version playing the Fox right now, and it’s a winner.

Rockin' Out at the Fox

The Fox was a rockin' recently with three performances of the US touring production of "Rock of Ages." Rather than having anything to do with the Christian hymn of the same name, this extravaganza of 80's rock standards had the audience playing air drums and air guitars throughout the house.
