New This Week:
|Bob Wetzel and Craig Becker|
My take: Honsesty compels me to point out that Bob is a fellow member of the board of The Cabaret Project, but honesty also comples me to say that I've been very impressed by his smooth and musically sharp work at the Cabaret Project open mic nights. And you can never go wrong when cabaret legends Lina Koutrakos and Rick Jensen are your directors.

My take: As I write in my review for KDHX, this is a jolly and entertaining production of a G&S classic that's a little bit of Savoyard heaven. It's satisfyingly silly and sung to perfection.

My take: I have always managed to curb my enthusiasm for Franki Valli and the Four Seasons, but there's no question that this juke-box musical gloss on the lives and careers of the group has met with considerable critical acclaim. Writing for MaxSTL, Tina Farmer says Jersey Boys "is more than a touch nostalgic, but the show doesn't feel old. The story is still relatable and nearly every song is a well-crafted piece of pop music history...the focus on the songs and storytelling creates a satisfying and surprisingly intimate evening of theater." "The Muny showcases its best and brightest presentation yet," enthuses Mark Bretz at Ladue News.
