Sweeney Todd at the Lunt Fontanne Theater

NEW YORK – Sweeney Todd at the Lunt Fontanne Theater is a whopper of a tale, and the charm of this musical the last two times I saw it was that it pulled me into this preposterous story.

The Days of Wine and Roses

Watching O’Hara and D’Arcy James in Days of Wine and Roses is both thrilling and exhausting. These two thoroughbreds navigate this difficult and overwritten score with grace and self-assurance. Every song that O’Hara sings is an aria. D’Arcy James takes on his music with the precision of a fencing master. This is a master class in every way.

CATS at the Mayo Performing Arts Center

There are so many beautiful songs in the first and second acts, too many to list. Still, song after song and with mindboggling dance presentations, the theatergoers waited in anticipation to hear Grizabella’s full performance of Memory, and it didn’t disappoint. It was so powerful that everyone in the theater held their breath momentarily.
