Tonight’s Bill: Honeymoon in Vegas

Last week, I was invited to check out Honeymoon in Vegas, a new Broadway musical staring Tony Danza.

To be honest, it was […]

See a Little Culture at Home with The Last 5 Years

One of my favorite musicals hit the big screen last weekend – The Last 5 Years. A couple summers ago I saw the show at Second Stage Theater after hearing rave reviews about it from my friend Bradley, over at Amuse*Bouche.  What really sold it for me was that Bradley spilled the beans and said […]

In Love with Love Letters

I am not a play person by any means and I’m the first to admit that if offered a musical or a play, I’ll take the musical every single time. And then I got invited to Love Letters with my fiance.

The premise was simple – Carol Burnett on stage next to Brian Dennehy […]
