Review: ‘Bonnie & Clyde’ is complex, beautiful and all-around terrific

Written by Marin Heinritz | Friday, 06 July 2018 11:42 |

Great Depression era American criminals Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow captured newspaper readers’ imaginations of their day, becoming public figures for doing no good and creating celebrity culture before its time.

American author L. Frank Baum’s children’s book “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” has been adapted practically countless times since its publication in 1900, and for good reason.

Review: Mason Street Warehouse goes far above and beyond with ‘Mamma Mia!’

Written by Marin Heinritz | Saturday, 23 June 2018 15:21 |

What’s the big deal about Mamma Mia!, the fluffy jukebox musical built upon Swedish disco-pop group ABBA’s hits? With a 14-year run on Broadway and solidly placed in the top-10 longest running shows in both Broadway and West End history, and a movie adaptation with a sequel set to release this year, it’s a show people are downright wild about.
