Perez Reviews: 'The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time'

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time is one of the best plays we have EVER seen!!!

Wildly inventive in every which way, the new show on Broadway explores some powerful themes. The three which resonated the most with us are…

- The untapped potential within all of us
- Not to judge or underestimate others
- The ties that connect us ALL together

These themes were explored in so many fun and fresh ways, all while being incredibly deep, moving and powerful.

The play revolves around a dog's murder and a 15 year old autistic boy determined to play detective and find the culprit.

The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time is a drama, a comedy, a murder mystery and - most similarly - it moves and feels like a musical, even though it's a play.

If you liked War Horse, then you will like this show EVEN MORE!

Every single element is so inventive, from the superb writing and storytelling by Simon Stephens, to the illuminating and ever-changing set by Bunny Christie, which enhance the experience in infinite ways.

All this brilliantly put together by the director, Marianne Elliott, who cast a top-notch crew of actors that all delivered homeruns. However, in his Broadway debut, Alex Sharp, literally months out of acting school at Juilliard, gives a grand slam performance! The acting, the doing. He DID so much! He made it seem so effortless! Such a dynamic, real, beautiful performance!

Major hats off to everyone involved with The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time!!!

Run - and fast - to buy your tickets NOW!

Sting Is Joining The Cast Of His Own Broadway Play The Last Ship! Last Ditch Effort To Try And Boost Sales??

| Filed under: Music MinuteBroadway BabiesStingBusiness Blitz

no title

The Last Ship is a Broadway musical by 16-time Grammy winner Sting!!

What could've been an incredible show by an amazing artist turned out to be pretty underwhelming — we even reviewed the entire thing HERE if you'd like our in-depth analysis.

The play is pretty bleak and it takes a stab at being something great, but it just sadly falls short.

So we're not surprised by this move: Sting is joining the cast!!

Perez Reviews: 'Lypsinka! The Boxed Set'

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

After a long break from performing… Lypsinka is back!

Lypsinka is not a drag queen. She is a drag LEGEND! An icon that transcends the genre!

John Epperson, the man behind the femme fatale, is a huge talent and a fierce comedic actor - and we are thrilled that we got to see his Lypsinka! The Boxed Set greatest hits show in New York City on Friday night.

We had never seen "Lypsinka" before, so we didn't know what to expect. She is in her own lane, combining real old school drag miming and with impeccable timing and a fully realized show. Plenty of costume changes a rich set and oodles of glamour.

RuPaul girls have nothing on Lypsinka!

SO MANY highlights in the Boxed Set show, but the most brilliant and inspired segment was a recreation and reinterpretation of The Twelve Daze Of Christmas. We were in pain laughing!

What's also very impressive is that Epperson is performing The Boxed Set in repertoire with two other shows. That's a lot of material to have to remember!

Lypsinka is back, but for a very limited engagement. Get your tickets today. It's a must see!!!

Tom Felton Plays A HIGHlarious Picture Prank On Rupert Grint After His Broadway Show!!

Rupert Grint and Tom Felton may be good friends in real life, unlike their Harry Potter personas, but they're in the midst of a bitter war.

A bitter PRANK WAR!

These two have been back and fourth playing jokes on each other since they were younger, and it looks like that's not going to stop anytime soon.

[ Video: Rupert Grint Talks His Broadway Show In This BTS Clip! ]

Rupert is currently starring in the Broadway show It's Only A Play with Matthew Broderick, so Tom decided it was time to strike.

He showed up to the stage door after the show and waited — in disguise — to try and get a picture with Rupert and pester him relentlessly unless he gave in!

An insider explained:

"Tom was in a disguise to pull a prank on Rupert. The pair have a long history of playing pranks on each other on the set and off. Eventually Tom revealed himself to Rupert. It was hilarious."

LOL! Well, luckily an Instagram user caught sight of Tom and took a sneaky pic of him in action!

She shared the snap and said:

LOLOLOL! We love it! Such light-hearted fun!

We can't WAIT to see what the next prank will be!
