Evita plays the Orpheum on it's "Rainbow Tour"…Continue

Rising from the poorest of the poor to the most famous and richest of the rich is not a path many take in their lifetime. Although, faced with many challenges along the way, Eva Peron did just that! You can see her remarkable life story and her major success at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis until February 2ND. Having never heard of the Musical “Evita”, let alone the person Eva Peron, I…Continue
Evita should probably be re-branded as “Che,” after Che Guevara (portrayed by Josh Young), the quasi narrator of the story. He spends his cliche Andrew Lloyd Webber “rock out” moments criticising Evita, her politics, activities, and her followers. Evita is more of a criticism rather than a celebration, which was not at all what I was expecting. The narrator/character of Che plays a confusing role in the show. Is he the narrator? Is he a citizen of Argentina? Does he exist? No? It's hard to…Continue
Evita is being preformed at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis through February second. This show has been remastered for the first time since its debut 30 years ago. Evita has an intense story and a tragic feel. But the performers didn’t quite live up to this powerful story, the production was not tight. The set, special effects and orchestra were amazing and really lifted the show up. Certain songs and performances stood out, but as a whole, the ensemble wasn’t…Continue
Evita was a very good show. It will have you leaving the theater in awe and with a smile on your face. It has several bright moments and is over all appealing. This show takes place in Argentina from 1934 - 1952. It is about a poor woman named Eva and how she goes from having nothing to becoming the wife of the president. It is showing at the Orpheum Theater until February 2nd.
Most aspects of the performances in this show were extraordinary. …Continue

Cabaret was truly outstanding. From beginning to end, it was enthralling and as entertaining as any stage production I’ve seen. Set in Berlin, Germany during 1929, the show takes us through the twists and turns of humanity. It addresses some of the hardest topics in the world today. Join Clifford, Sally, and the beloved Emcee at the Pantages Theater until February 9th.
The Emcee (Tyler Michaels) was a stand out. The way he portrayed his character added immensely to…Continue

The story is set around a writer that goes to Berlin to gain inspiration for his next novel. While in Berlin he visits a…Continue
Cabaret is a spectacular show with an entertaining story and powerful leads. Even though show’s staging could’ve been better fitted to the theater and seating, and the dancing was lacking a bit of heart, the story was racy, fun, and powerful, and the singing was simply perfect.
Cabaret is being performed at Pantages Theater by local Threater La Ti Da from Jan 16th- Feb 9th. This show is full of well known show-tunes. Cabaret is set in the “club life” of…Continue
Cabaret has left me very confused. It left me with my jaw dropped and my nail beds thoroughly bitten. It left me humming "Springtime for Hitler," from The Producers. It left me needing to consume as much literature related to the musical, the movie, the symbolism, past productions. But mostly, I was just confused.
That is not to say that I didn't enjoy myself. I had a great time seeing it, and think it was a very well done production.
But I'm just so confused.…Continue
