EVITA on Broadway

I recently attended a performance of EVITA on Broadway. My knowledge of the storyline was limited to previews of the movie that Madonna was in that I didn’t see. I knew two songs because of the previews but that was it.

The production absolutely exceeded my expectations!

The Book of Mormon on Broadway

I’ll admit that I personally wrestled a bit with how to write a review on the Broadway play “The Book of Mormon.”  The play was REALLY funny!

It was also EXTREMELY offensive and went WAY TOO FAR in my opinion for a few of the songs and yet it had redemptive qualities along the way too.

Flashdance -The Musical on Broadway

Even if you are too young to remember the movie, there is a good chance that you have heard the classic songs from the 1983 film Flashdance. I was really excited about seeing this play.

As a child who grew up in the 80’s, I knew that Flashdance – The Musical would be a fun show with lots of great dance numbers. I also recently went to Pittsburgh for the first time over the summer and I fell in love with the city and it’s hard working roots and grit, which is where the story takes place.

Ghost ~The Musical on Broadway

Ghost the Musical

 

When I first heard about Ghost the musical, I had a hard time imagining how they would create a play out of a movie that was so character driven. Demi, Patrick and Whoopi were powerhouse actors in the film “Ghost” but I was pleasantly surprised by the outcome of the play.

“The musical’s tale of everlasting love is thrilling entertainment for audiences of all ages. Adapted from the hit film by its Academy Award-winning screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin, Ghost the Musical follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam’s untimely death. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death. Ghost The Musical breathes glorious new life into a timeless love story. The musical features an original pop score from multiple Grammy Award-winners Dave Stewart, one half of the 80s pop duo the Eurythmics, and Glen Ballard, co-writer with Alanis Morissette on the multi-platinum album Jagged Little Pill, among many other notable credits and collaborations.”
