This being a clear yet abstract representation of the Greek beaches that make up the setting of Mamma Mia!, the iconic musical each patron was about to experience. Mamma Mia is a story revolving around Sophie Sheridan’s (Lizzie Markson)…

   This movie made musical The Body Guard was showing at the Orpheum from January from the 10th to the 15th, and it was quite endearing and enjoyable to watch.

Do you think Dirty Dancing the stage play would work as a stand alone? I'm curious if you think it's strong enough and has enough of a plot by itself to carry people through without having seen the…Continue

    What is SpotLight's Critical Reviewer Program?

    SpotLight's Critical Review Program gives high school students the opportunity to attend and review touring Broadway productions and SpotLight school productions. Critical Review is part of a larger curriculum that teaches communication skills, and enhances critical thinking and creative response. As part of this program, students receive study guides and press kits before the show, learn from experts including local theatre critics, playwrights and actors who discuss topics from lighting design to choreography, and in some cases, have expanded access to the Broadway touring cast and crew. 

    This program is funded through the generous support of Fred and Ann Moore.
