Perez Reviews: Spring Awakening

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

no title

We did not enjoy the original Broadway production of Spring Awakening - for many reasons. To recap: too dark, felt unfinished and felt like it belonged more off-Broadway.

So, we went in to this new revival with very low expectations and were very pleasantly surprised.

This new production - done with hearing and deaf actors - makes the show feel super fresh. There is much more going on this time around.

There's also some much needed levity. There's more humor in this one. And Spencer Liff's choreography and staging adds sooooo much to the show!

Michael Arden did a superb job directing and some truly standout performances from Camryn Manheim, Andy Mientus, Austin McKenzie and Katie Boeck.

Definitely worth seeing, even if didn't like the original production!

Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Musical Will Now Be 4 Hours Long & Split Into Two Different Parts!

This is great news if you're a Potterhead and somewhat awful news if you have a short attention span…

We were blown away when we heard that J.K. Rowling was crafting a brand-new Harry Potter story, but it was music to our ears when we found out that the new chapter was actually going to be told in the form of a musical!

Well, it's been three months since Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was officially announced, and now the team behind the West End production dropped yet another major bomb.

As it turns out, the musical is so grand that it's actually being cut into two 2-hour long parts that will be shown at different times!

He'll always be our pal!

Jack Larson, the actor who portrayed Superman's pal Jimmy Olsen in The Adventures of Superman, passed away on Sunday in his Brentwood home at the age of 87.

Larson was born in 1928 in Los Angeles and made his film debut in 1948 in the movie Fighter Squadron. Jack originally wanted to become a Broadway actor, which is why he was hesitant to take the role as Daily Planet photographer Jimmy Olsen.

Larson was worried he'd be typecast if he took the role, but his agent assured him that the show was likely to be so bad it wouldn't air. Unfortunately for him, the show ended up being a hit and aired in syndication from 1952-1958.

As a result, his fears ended up coming true as he found it extremely difficult to find work after the hit superhero show aired.

Luckily though, he had a
