THE VIEW UPSTAIRS review

It's right to look back on the way being gay used to be. We may learn a lesson or two about community and love from past events as in The View UpStairs, evenly directed by Michael A. Shepperd and beautifully acted by a terrific ensemble.

HAMILTON review

Remarkable in every sense of the word. I'm not a fan of hip-hop but within the first few minutes, it helped me clearly understand where the show was heading. A triple threat cast and outstanding staging and choreography.

HONKY TONK LAUNDRY review

Nevertheless, who doesn't like to listen to two gals with southern accents dishing the dirt and gossiping about everyone in town? Lana Mae has a tongue that will not quit; she's a real spitfire. And of course, this rubs off on Katie to excess. If you're looking for great singing, and lots of full-out laughter, go to Honky Tonk Laundry. What's low on plot is certainly high on entertainment. Malone and Cotton are two of the best musical performers anywhere, anytime.
