Jersey Boys (Third Viewing)

I was Karen’s emergency backup date for Jersey Boys after her regular date had a last minute cancellation. We were going to the Hard Rock to eat at Renegade for dinner, but they were closed (a previous visit to Renegade for my birthday can be found in this post). They have new hours and are […]

Wicked, The Review, (Ft Lauderdale 3-15-08)

Right, then. A good night at the theatre (or a bad one) always starts with dinner before the show. This one would be no exception. We ate, al fresco, at a place called the River House. The food was excellent, the service was slow but not bad. Our waiter, however, had the personality of a […]

Market Boy (Play Review)

Market Boy, a play by David Elridge was at the National Theatre in London. It was advertised as a comedy about losing your innocence whilst selling shoes in the market set to a 1980s soundtrack. The soundtrack was the best part. Although I liked it, it started out okay and never got any better, and […]

Avenue “Q” The Review (1-June-06) London Premiere

I finally got the chance to see Avenue Q whilst attending the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas, but that version is a 90-minute edited version (see link at bottom of review). While in London this past week I had noticed the London premiere of Avenue Q was on 6-1-06 and I managed to get […]

Marry Poppins (Play Review)

We saw Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward Theatre in London, 29 May 2006. If you like the movie, you will like this play. If you love the movie, you will like this play. If you hate the movie, you will absolutely despise this play with a passion. In true Disney fashion, they’ve taken the […]

Avenue “Q” The Review (5-9-06 Wynn Las Vegas)

I’ve wanted to see Avenue Q since I saw the poster hanging up in New York City some time ago. Until now I haven’t managed to see it, but I finally got the chance whilst attending the National Hardware Show. Seats were easy to get which explains why it’s closing in two weeks. I loved […]

Cirque Du Soleil: Delirium (Charlotte, 4-29-06)

Billy Elliot (Play Review, London)

I originally saw this play on 2 August 2005, and I have been trying to find my original review since then, but it seems to have gone AWOL along with my entire list archive for that trip (and also my review of the Proms, etc). So for this review, I’m going to have to skip […]

Blast(s) From The Past

I often write movie reviews, concert reviews, and theatre reviews and I’ve not been good about getting them out except to a few people here and there, so I’ve decided to do some retroactive posts. I will add them all into my blog with the original date they were posted. These posts will be clearly […]

Lennon The Musical (Review of Preview)

This is a retro-post. I put this online 24 December 2005 using the date it was originally sent out. (FIRST, an excerpt from the San Jose Mercury News) MUSICAL ABOUT THE COUNTERCULTURE ICON JUMPS ON BROADWAY’S NOSTALGIA BANDWAGONBy Karen D’Souza ā€œImagine all the people sharing all the world.ā€ Now imagine nine actors, male and female, […]
