MY FAVOURITE MUSICAL VIEWING OF 2015! Hilarious and wonderful. Originally posted on The AU Review. — What do you get when you take Jurassic Park, get humans to play all the dinosaurs, get those dinosaurs to be singing dancing dinosaurs, and dress those dinosaurs in sequins?

This wasn’t an immensely popular production, but I thought it was alright! I laughed quite a bit, and that’s always a good sign 🙂 Originally posted on The AU Review. — Two ageing Broadway divas, who have long since seen the comforting warmth of the Hollywood spotlight, are brought together again for the hopeful work …

Bit of a different writing format than usual but THE BIG ONE! The musical of musicals! Les Miserables! And WHAT A PRODUCTION! It was darn near perfect- in my mind lead by the most wonderful of Javert’s (my favourite character in Les Mis) Hayden Tee. Incredible voice, and lovely guy! But everyone was wonderful, and …

Le Noir was pretty cool, although it really takes a lot for me to find these circus act shows impressive. Maybe I’ve seen too many and the stunts (although really incredible displays of human capability) get a little repetitive? I guess the standout in this case was that the performances are reallyyyy close. Originally posted …

I really like this musical, especially the recording with Brian Stokes Mitchell ❤  “The Impossible Dream” is of course one of the Great Songs of Musical Theatre Repertoire, but there are so many other great pieces in this musical too. I was so glad Squabbalogic was able to put this one on so I could finally …
