Re: “A Lot of Bluffing and Some Poignant Redemption in 'Between Riverside and Crazy'

The actors were all phenomenal and Ms. Ganier was sooooo good, I'd see the play again just to see her part again!!!!

Re: “Run to Playhouse Square for "The King and I"

Had to get your leftist tilt in the review, didn't you? It's disgusting.

Re: “Far From Loverly Lady

Thanks for this. I needed the reminder. "A sequined graduate of the Liberace School of Unctuousness". This is the worst review I have ever received and I think you captured the truth of the moment. I had been dreading going out to do that every single show. "queasy" was the absolute truth. I am laughing so hard I'm crying over hear. I stumbled upon this after all these years. You worded it much better than I ever could have. Cheers.

Re: “A Winter Theater Preview for Northeast Ohio

One doesn't have to be a supporter of Trump (I'm most definitely *not*) to feel that these editorial "jokes" were way out of line. If you want to discuss which of the two major political candidates was more belligerent or inclined to blow us up sooner, take it to a data mining shout-out like FB. It doesn't belong here.

Re: “A Winter Theater Preview for Northeast Ohio

Keep your inane political comments to yourself. What makes you think theater-goers are interested in your political views?

Re: “'Selfies at the Clown Motel' Confounds at Convergence-Continuum

"Selfie" comes from the word "self"...as does "selfish"...and they are not dissimilar...

Re: “Great Singing Perfectly Complements a Lush Production in 'Blues in the Night' at Karamu

I knew this would be a great opening show for Karamu House. I know these performers personally, and I am sitting in Tallahassee, Florida, wishing I was there and being there in spirit all along. BRAVO! What a superb review. CONGRATULATIONS!

Re: “'Ring of Fire', Johnny Cash Jukebox Musical, Delights at Porthouse

"All of the performances are top notch." And the beautiful harmonizing is awesome! There are times when you can't distinguish which 'Johnny' is singing. This is definitely a Great show that shouldn't be missed. I would love to see this cast together again in another production ......

Re: “A Boozy Druggie Leads His Flock Into a Dead-end Story in Jerusalem at Ensemble Theatre

Thank you for really adding something to this article with your inane comment; I have the attention span of a toddler, three hours?! Waaaaaaa!

And now back to reading something that won't make me weep for the elderly shitting their pants and shitting out their deep thoughts.

Re: “A Boozy Druggie Leads His Flock Into a Dead-end Story in Jerusalem at Ensemble Theatre

This is one of those stories that sounds so awfully bad that it might actually be good.
But not for almost three hours. That's much too much.
It would end up feeling like three hours in the dentist chair...sheer torture.

Thanks for the heads-up.

Re: “'If/Then' at Playhouse Square Wants to Have it Both Ways and Gets Neither

I wanted most this season to see IF/THEN. So glad that I did. Waiting in the balcony for some of the crowd to leave, the diverse occupants of seats in the row I was in began talking....gender and ages notwithstanding, we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Was it emotional? Nobody in reviews has found much emotion, yet all of us admitted to damp cheeks during Act II. This was a show worth experiencing! Enjoyed it more than Bullets Over Broadway and Gentleman's Guide to Murder.
PS---would I have liked seeing/hearing Idina Menzel? Of course! But Jackie Burns IS actually worth the price of admission.....really she is....

Re: “'If/Then' at Playhouse Square Wants to Have it Both Ways and Gets Neither

You always know when a show isn't worth con$ideration. The frequency of commercials for the event on local television rival that of a national political campaign, and free tickets are flying out of local media outlets like the Buzzards in Hinckley.

She doesn't sleep with her boss in either storyline, although she tries to.
