This Little Show... Was a Miracle!

Posted on April 25, 2017 at 5:47pm 0 Comments

Captivating story met with equally engaging choreography! The show Matilda is based on the immortal children’s book by Roald Dahl, where a child prodigy discovers her own telekinetic abilities as she navigates the horrors of her horrible school and neglectful parents. This production of Matilda, the show that has broken the record for most Olivier Awards won by a musical, had an eye-popping aesthetic that carried the audience back to the place where the original story was published: Great… Continue

The King & An Outstanding Show

I have never felt sympathy for a king, but this show made my heart go out to the wealthiest, most powerful man in his country.

So, this production had to meet high expectations. Although the farewell tour of Mamma Mia! featuring the songs of ABBA was not awful to watch, but it was… Continue

This Show Had One Job...

...And it kinda delivered. This show, based on the iconic 1992 thriller starring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, had breathtaking solo performances, innovative video design, and a legendary finale, but the characterization and duets/trios in The Bodyguard failed to give me chills- besides the kind created by jump scares. Overall, the show was a fun way to spend a Tuesday night, but had a clunky delivery that only a fan of the movie could love.



It is not surprising that the music… Continue
