On Sunday, January 16th I went to go see Minneapolis Musical Theater Company's production of Five Course Love at the New Century theater.
Going to see shows at the New Century is always interesting for me, because it is the space my school uses for its shows, and I've performed on the stage before. Granted this is the case, I haven't seen too many shows aside from the ones my school has put on, on the stage. The only other show I'd seen there was a Fringe play, and it had a…Continue

I didn’t like We Will Rock You, I do, however, like Queen.
Yeaah, they’re kind of campy, and kind of overplayed, but, I do appreciate them a lot. Of course, there’s Freddie’s vocals, and then there’s the fact that they had a strange talent for producing earbugs.
There’s plenty of people with good singing voices, but very few can take their…Continue

Instead of formatting this review like a normal review, it's going to be formatted like a standup set. (to the best of my ability) I’m going to do it this way, because, well, it’s a review for a standup comedy show. And it’s only appropriate to do so.
Hopefully I won’t upstage the actual comedian, who, by the way, was John Oliver. He was absolutely wonderful, and I really enjoyed his set.…

“I heard that the puppets are better in this show than in Lion King,” one elderly patroness said to her friend. I felt my blood run cold, then quietly started compiling evidence against her statement. The lights went up, and the first thing I saw was a man’s hand on the giant, mechanical foal tail. It twitched, and I literally jumped in my seat, utterly creeped out. Then, out of nowhere, a chorus of puppeteers gave out a shrill, all-too-human whinny. “Is that supposed to…Continue
An equally fitting title for Rock of Ages would’ve been That’s-What-She-Said: The Musical. Indeed, the humor and the nature of the show, with it’s G-strings and liberal use of the word “balls”, is anything but high-brow. You’ve got to suspend disbelief (and to some degree, your moral compass and intelligence) in order to enjoy it. The Les Miserables sect of the Broadway empire need not inquire further, unless if they’re ready to…Continue
On Tuesday, October 16th, I had to pleasure of seeing Disney’s Beauty and the Beast at the Orpheum Theatre. It was a great show! It centers around a young French girl named Belle who dreams of something more than her “provincial life.” Then she is imprisoned in an enchanted castle, owned by a ferocious beast who’s under a spell. If this bewitched prince doesn’t learn to love another and earn her love in return he will stay a beast forever. This show has been to Minneapolis before,…Continue
