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....
So. Much. Stuff!
Lost in the shuffle is the first patriotic superhero from MLJ Magazines, writer Harry Shorten and artist Irv Novick -- the Shield....chemist and FBI agent Joe Higgins, the son of Lieutenant Tom Higgins.
Rebel Bass: After party at the Agora theater Friday and Saturday night.
Excellently written review.
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.
I was mystified by the scenic design. I thought there was smoke behind the house and I had to idea what the ziz zags on the stage were. I also found the "store" set up very confusing, scenically. That said, I tremendously enjoyed the story, characters and dialog, but also felt emotionally a bit cut off. The acting seems top notch and I very much felt they all had the potential to take the story to a higher plane.
Fred Bidwell has lots of money, but poor taste in art.
Thanks a lot, this really is a truly awsome article! I also can be helpful here :) So here is my saving grace: AltoMerge helped me to merge and manage files order. Just try it http://goo.gl/Ms4ebj

A primer on why Hough finally exploded in frustration and rage can be found in the book -- "A Ghetto Takes Shape: Black Cleveland, 1870-1930" by Kenneth L. Kusmer.
Next year hire a critic who actually cares about theatre and giving awards. It's a disservice to the creative actors and actresses who are reviewed with a disclaimer that the accolades are essentially stupid.
Thanks Josh for this piece on the CWF and all the wonderful artist that are being rewarded. Just a quick note, the photo of Lauren Herzak-Bauman's piece was taken by Jerry Mann.
Are you guys looking to hire an editor?
Lakewood Community College? Not a thing.
The art is from the jagged pace, grit and commotion of the city -- far removed from freeway ramps, parking garages and orderly hustle due to business attire.
Was the framing device of comparing this lovely musical to the republican debates really necessary? Like what did that add to your review? I mean I get it, I don't care for any of the ponies the Republicans trotted out there either, but If you want to write an opinion piece, don't do it in the arts section.
I grew up in the sixties and i loved it the first time i saw it. The show was emotionally charged with challenges of the millennial. While the challenges are different from what i may have experienced, the characters proved to me the pain is still the same.
Things move A LOT faster these days, there was a documentary put out in 1972 called Future Shock that describes the inability to keep up with life as it comes at you...We watched it in 6th grade...Didn't understand it...NOW I do...
