The Rose Tattoo

I don't think I like Tennessee Williams. Granted, I only vaguely recall the plots of the Glass Menagerie and a Streetcar Named Desire. I do however remember well that they haven't aged well, and I found them generally stressful.…

The Wrong Man

This one is gonna transfer to Broadway, and it'll probably pick up a few Tonys. The Wrong Man reunites Hamilton alumni Thomas Kail and Alex Lacamoire to tell the story of a man facing the death penalty for a crime he didn't commit.…

Only Human

Poor Only Human. It has so much potential and it's such a mess. It attempts to be The Office in Heaven but instead manages to have more plot-holes than the Matrix trilogy.…

Seared

It's a pretty universal experience to work with a huge asshole who is unfortunately great at their job; Seared captures this experience perfectly.…

Freestyle Love Supreme

So what is it? Freestyle Love Supreme is an improv comedy show staring the friends of Lin Manuel Miranda. Every night different members of a rotating group take the stage. I didn't get to see Lin Manuel, but I did get to see Wayne Brady, James Monroe Iglehart, and Chris Jackson.…

Little Shop of Horrors

It's clear from the onset we're in for a good time; The show itself is kitschy, but it works. It has everything. A big name star (Groff), music by Alan Menkin, and an outrageous sci-fi plot. I really enjoyed the intersection of classic Disney-style music with a story about a man-eating plant.…

Les Misérables in Concert

Last week, I got to see Les Mis in Concert in London at the Gielgud Theatre. This was such an interesting performance. The Sondheim Theater is currently under renovation, and as a result they’re doing Les Misérables in Concert as opposed to the standard musical.…

Sir Ian McKellen

When booking my trip to London I was looking to see a uniquely British show. I was delighted to discover that Ian McKellen was performing an 16 weeks only intimate show at the Harold Pinter theater.…

Rent

This production was stellar. The Secret Theater is tiny, less than 100 seats tiny. The stage was a scaled down version of the traditional Rent set. There was the scaffolding in the back and a table in front. It works; it's intimate.…
