Featured Shows
&Juliet &Juliet
It’s perhaps only appropriate that “&Juliet,” the thoroughly enchanting new “jukebox musical” now at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre, ends with an audience singalong to “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” the ultra-catchy Oscar-nominated theme from the 2016… [more]
A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical A Beautiful Noise: The Neil Diamond Musical
Prepare to hear noise – and make noise – at “A Beautiful Noise,” the often exuberant if tonally confused biomusical about the legendary singer-songwriter Neil Diamond, now settling in for what I expect to be… [more]
Aladdin Aladdin
Casey Nicholaw has proven more than once over his career that he knows how to create a truly show-stopping moment on stage (just think of “Show Off” from “The Drowsy Chaperone”), but the talented director-choreographer… [more]
Asi Winds Asi Winds
Producers of Asi Wind’s Inner Circle, the jaw-dropping show that The New York Times calls “giddily mystifying” and that The New Yorker says is “dazzling” and “astonishing” announced today that its limited engagement has been… [more]
Between Riverside and Crazy Between Riverside and Crazy
For decades, Stephen McKinley Henderson has been given appetizer-sized parts on Broadway and made an entrée out of each of them. So, thank goodness that Stephen Adly Guirgis cooked up a three-course meal for Henderson… [more]
Chicago Chicago
For much of its 20+ year run, the Broadway revival of the brilliant John Kander-Fred Ebb musical “Chicago” at the Ambassador Theatre has attracted new audiences by bringing in a rotating series of superstars from… [more]
Colin Quinn: Small Talk Colin Quinn: Small Talk
I give full credit to any performer willing to take the stage by themselves and try to keep an audience’s attention for the entire show. Intriguingly, “Rent” star Anthony Rapp’s first attempt at this genre,… [more]
Funny Girl Funny Girl
It has long been speculated that the reason no Broadway producer has revived the legendary musical “Funny Girl” since 1964 is that no woman could erase the memory of Barbra Streisand, who magnifcently portrayed the… [more]
Great Expectations Great Expectations
Given the flexibility of the Greenwich House Theater, one can’t help but wish that the producers of “Great Expectations” had replaced the theater’s uncomfortable seats with cozy couches, all the better to fully appreciate Eddie… [more]
Hamilton Hamilton
History is made, in more ways than one, in “Hamilton,” the consistently thrilling, often groundbreaking new musical by Lin-Manuel Miranda that has landed at Broadway’s Richard Rodgers Theatre after an award-winning run earlier this year… [more]
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Harry Potter and the Cursed Child
Yes, Virginia, there’s finally some real magic back on Broadway! Fear not, even in its “slimmed-down” one-part version, Jack Thorne’s “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child,” a continuation of J.K. Rowling’s multi-book saga, still has… [more]
Kimberly Akimbo Kimberly Akimbo
As a teenager growing up in Bergen County, I often felt older than my peers. But my plight hardly compares to the one suffered by Kimberly Levaco, the center of the brilliant new musical “Kimberly… [more]
Leopoldstadt Leopoldstadt
When seeing a Tom Stoppard play, one expects to be intellectually dazzled, if not emotionally devastated. That changes with “Leopoldstadt,” now getting its U.S. premiere at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre, which magnificently succeeds at both challenging… [more]
If there’s ever been any question that Michael Jackson was one of the greatest singer-dancers that pop music has ever produced, the new biomusical “MJ,” now at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre, simply refutes all doubters.… [more]
Moulin Rouge! The Musical Moulin Rouge! The Musical
As any Francophile can tell you, red is the signature hue of the new Broadway megamusical “Moulin Rouge,” now at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre. It’s prevalent in many aspects of Derek McLane’s extra-extravagant set, Catherine… [more]
Six Six
“Remember us from PBS?,” Catherine of Aragon (the excellent Adrianna Hicks) cheekily asks the audience early on at the extremely entertaining “Six,” even though I doubt if many of the folks sitting inside the Brooks… [more]
Some Like It Hot Some Like It Hot
Giving musical theater audiences what they want has proved to be an increasingly tricky task. Giving them what they “need” is even harder. So, let’s give a round of pre-show applause to “Some Like It… [more]
Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical Stranger Sings! The Parody Musical
Audience members who have spent more than a few hours visiting the “upside down” over the past few years will positively flip for “Stranger Sings: The Parody Musical,” a sly, affectionate and sometimes hilarious send-up… [more]
Take Me Out Take Me Out
It’s not just “the love that dare not speak its name” which is given voice in Richard Greenberg’s 2002 play “Take Me Out,” now receiving a beautifully acted revival by director Scott Ellis at Second… [more]
The Book of Mormon The Book of Mormon
Traditional in form and style, but subversive in content, the new musical, “The Book of Mormon,” is a no-holds-barred extravaganza rife with irreverence. Its creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, of “South Park” fame, and… [more]
The Collaboration The Collaboration
Truth is not only stranger than fiction, it’s often more interesting. Indeed, one hopes the actual relationship between art world titans Andy Warhol and Jean Michel-Basquiat had more depth than is now being depicted in… [more]
The Lion King The Lion King
The most successful of Disney's screen-to-stage adaptations benefits greatly from Julie Taymor's masterful staging, complete with bigger-than-life puppets who bring the African wildlife to life. The story of the young lion cub who must succeed… [more]
The Phantom of the Opera The Phantom of the Opera
The chandelier still swings over the audience, the gondola still floats in the mist, and the music of the night still soars. Twenty-six years and nearly 11,000 performances later, Harold Prince’s lavish production of Andrew… [more]
Titanique Titanique
With so much of today’s theater forcing us to reflect on our current-day society and its moral problems, no one can blame audiences for seeking a pure escape – perhaps just like the millionaires of… [more]
Wicked Wicked
This very entertaining if dangerously overstuffed musical tells the "true story" about how poor misunderstood Elphaba (Shoshanna Bean) became the Wicked Witch of the West, and how she and good witch Galinda (Jennifer Laura Thompson)… [more]
Without You Without You
I give full credit to any performer willing to take the stage by themselves and try to keep an audience’s attention for the entire show. Intriguingly, “Rent” star Anthony Rapp’s first attempt at this genre,… [more]
