“Into the Woods” is at Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts in Orlando this week, and this literally straight-from-Broadway production sizzles and snaps with laughs and a few heart-tugs.
It’s been three years since “Hamilton” last took the stage at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, but judging from last night’s performance, the show has not lost any of its fire or luster.
I’ve been a fan of “Jesus Christ Superstar” since I was a child when my mom took me to see first the movie, then the actual theater production, in the 70s.
I then had a chance to see the 1992 touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” with the movie’s stars Ted Neeley and Carl Anderson.
So I super excited to see the current touring production of “Jesus Christ Superstar,” celebrating 50 years of the show, which is at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando this week.
This production is different from what I’ve experienced before, but it was still very thrilling to watch.
“Escape to Margaritaville,” now playing at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts, bundles the songs of Jimmy Buffett with a light story of romance and finding one’s purpose in life.
I hadn’t planned to write a review of “Tuck Everlasting: The Musical,” being presented by The Orlando REP, but after chaperoning a field trip to see the show, I was moved to do so.
I’ve loved musical theater ever since I was introduced to it as a child, but every once in a while, there’s a show that just exceeds all expectations. Such was my experience with seeing Hamilton last night at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts in Orlando.
I first became interested in music theater as a child, but it was when I saw Betty Buckley in Cats, that like became love. She was just phenomenal.
So I was extremely excited to see Hello, Dolly! at Orlando’s Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts this week, which starred Ms. Buckley herself.
