Tickets now on sale for Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour at Amway Center

As last month’s first-class touring production of Evita proved, there’s still plenty of life left in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s early musicals, and a new area tour is aiming to bring one of his first hits to an entirely new audience. As of 10 a.m. on April 11, tickets are now on sale for Jesus...

Oh what a circus, oh what a show! Even the most dedicated Andrew Lloyd Webber detractor must admit that Evita, the composer's third and final successful collaboration with lyricist Tim Rice, remains his most rich and rewarding work, as aptly demonstrated by the handsome recent revival from Fairwinds' Broadway Across America that's currently on...

The Tony- and Oliver-Awards winning play War Horse charged into Orlando's Bob Carr last night, and to say I had high expectations would be an understatement, considering that the show's equine star made my 2013 best-of list simply for his brief surpise appearance at FTA/Broadway Across America's season announcement party. Luckily, this touring company...

It’s been almost six years since I first wrote about Brian Feldman, and two since Orlando most undeniably unique performance artist departed for Washington D.C., but his one-show-only return on Wednesday night (Jan. 21, 2014) reminded me how much I’ve missed his brand of bizarre. The Feldman Dynamic 10th Anniversary reunited the cast of...

Combining entertainment with historical education and moral instruction is always a tricky proposition, and doubly so when we are speaking of theatre for young audiences. As the Orlando REP’s latest production proves, sometimes even the best artists can be led astray by the best of intentions. Jackie and Me, scripted by Steven Dietz based...

By
wpid-Photo-Oct-4-2013-120-AM.jpg

I've seen more than my share of jukebox musicals, both overrated (Movin' Out) and underrated (Good Vibrations), but until this week I'd never experienced the show that popularized today's trend of marrying a vintage musical act's greatest hits to a loose storyline.

In recent reviews, I’ve reported on a regrettable Orlando theater trend of repeatedly reviving certain musicals instead of staging something previously unseen. So why am I now reversing myself and reveling in another resurrection; a threepeat, no less? For starters, it’s been 18 years since Lizzie Borden – A New Musical was first mounted...
