The New Jewish Theatre production of David Hein and Irene Sankoff's unapologetically autobiographical musical "My Mother's Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding" is a pleasant and pleasing little show. It's so light that a stiff breeze would blow it away, but its heart is in the right place, which counts for a great deal.

'Kinky Boots' dazzles in sparkling stilettos

When music legend and style icon Cyndi Lauper partners with award-winning playwright Harvey Fierstein to score a Broadway musical, it's sure to be wild fun.

The “Cinderella” now at the Fox Theatre is not just any “Cinderella.” It's the “Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella.”

With “Ring of Fire: The Music of Johnny Cash,” the title explains the show itself.  It’s not the story of Johnny Cash the man, nor his demons or his loves, but of his music, specifically the music he wrote.

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.

With its skimpy costumes and abundant references in word and deed to sex of various kinds, “The Rocky Horror Show” might seem an unlikely choice for a group calling themselves Family Musical Theater. But someone who first saw “Rocky Horror” on stage or screen 30 years ago could well be joined by a grandchild at this production for a pleasant family outing.

The Over Due Theatre Company is a small impecunious group. With a budget of about two cents and a shoestring they continue to impress me—especially with their musicals.

We recently saw a musical about people who kill presidents. Now we have a musical about people who kill anyone who gets in the way of what they want. It's being done by New Line Theatre. They've already done the presidential one three times. This musical is "Bonnie and Clyde," about the curiously fascinating pair of young Depression-era outlaws.

The current Alpha Players production takes place in medieval England, as a historian, played with plummy BBC vowels by Chuck Brinkley, informs us. So Destiny Graham's set shows us the facade of a beautifully painted medieval castle. But obviously painted. Obviously a stage set. We are not visiting a realistic representation of King Arthur's Camelot. This is "Spamalot." Monty Python's "Spamalot". It's a show.

Who but Stephen Sondheim would think of a musical about people who shoot at presidents. It's called "Assassins," with Sondheim's music and lyrics and a book by John Weidman. And it works, both as script and in this production.
