Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile Movie Review

Under the magician’s tutelage and showing that dance is also part of the retiles’s skill set, Lyle and Hector are ready to conquer the New York stages. Their first show sells out and everything is set for success until the curtain goes up and the stage fright sets in. Lyle (Shawn Mendes) is completely unable to let rip. From this point on the story shifts to the arrival in the Big Apple of the Primm family. Pops is played by Scoot McNairy. Mother (Constance Wu) and their high-strung ...

Cinderella Theatre Review

The large cast cranks up the energy and the dance moves are impressive as are the lighting quick costume changes, it’s magic indeed. Production wise there are some problems, at times the amplified voices are too loud and shrill and the little ones will need to put their fingers in their ears to prevent damage, It’s easy to get lost in a story so familiar and just admire the craft. The stage design and costumes are impressive as well as the choreography and vocal arrangements (even ...

9 to 5 the Musical Theatre Review

The struggle women face in the current workplace is one still fraught with issues so the core topical nature illustrates how little progress has been made. This does little to lessen the celebratory nature of the work on stage. The main characters are told with broad strokes and the evil boss is even more cartoonish than before.   //   The play is filled out with Parton’s countrified contribution of songs and lyrics and those are mixed with vibrant dance numbers to ...

Cyrano Movie Review

Dinklage’s singing voice while being slight is buttressed by interesting lyrics and a heartfelt delivery. Elsewhere female lead Haley Bennett as Roxanne has a fine singing voice as does Kelvin Harrison Jr. as Christian, who is competing for Roxanne’s heart. Ben Mendelsohn is also interesting as De Guiche, who gets to get his Goth on via a deep resonant voice.   //   With a backdrop of war and the struggle of the class system breaking into song at any moment is ...

Buster (Oscar® winner Matthew McConaughey) and his cast have turned the New Moon Theater into a local hit, but Buster has his eyes on a bigger prize: Debuting a new show at the Crystal Tower Theater in glamorous Redshore City. But with no connections, Buster and his cast—including harried mother pig Rosita (Oscar® winner Reese Witherspoon), rocker porcupine Ash (Scarlett Johansson), earnest gorilla Johnny (Taron Egerton), shy elephant Meena (Tori Kelly) and, of course, porcine ...
