Perez Reviews: 'It Shoulda Been You'

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

We don't say this lightly, but…

It Shoulda Been You is not only the best new musical of the current Broadway season - it is the best theatrical experience we have had since Here Lies Love.

It Shoulda Been You is everything we wish A Gentleman's Guide To Love And Murder was but isn't. And that won the Tony for Best New Musical last year!

This is a brand new musical that's not based on a movie or book or the songs of a famous artist.

We can't think of a single thing we disliked about the show! It did EVERYTHING right!

It Shoulda Been You feels a lot like an uproarious romantic comedy film (think My Best Friend's Wedding) set to songs, and that's partly due to the super effective choice of not having an intermission and to the show being written by a sitcom veteran and Broadway newcomer, Brian Hargrove, who's worked on such shows as Wanda At Large, Titus, Caroline In The City and more. He's also married to Frasier alum David Hyde Pierce, who makes his Broadway directorial debut skillfully helming this musical about a wedding with many twists and turns.

BUT, the great one-liners and humor would not land if it weren't delivered effectively and this great ensemble cast does a superb job of bringing the laughs! And it's a true ensemble with some mega talent! Everyone has their moment to shine!

And Lisa Howard, especially, gives a star-making performance as the sister who's not-so-lucky in love.

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a revelation she is!

The cast is rounded out by such talented actors! Tyne Daly, Harriet Harris, Sierra Boggess, David Burtka, Montego Glover, Chip Zien, Josh Grisetti, Adam Heller, and Nick Spangler all shine and are utilized to the best of their abilities!

We don't want to give away any of plot because there are so many surprises, which make the show so fun. But It Shoulda Been You isn't all fluff. Hargrove, who also wrote the lyrics in addition to the book, and composer Barbara Anselmi, have created some beautiful songs about love, acceptance, feeling "a little bit less than" and real meaningful themes! Plus there are just some hilarious songs as well!

We can't rave about it enough! It Shoulda Been You is a MUST see!!!!

What an unexpected delight!

In this wonderful age of the internet, it feels like we've pretty much seen every kind of pregnancy announcement you can think of!

But while most couples go with awkward or cute (or both) photos, this momma and poppa in training decided to go with the less often used "rapping-pregnancy-announcement" approach!

And if that's not enough to get you hooked, they did it to the tune of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song!!

Your Reaction?

Botched is back!

The hit E! docu-series that follows celebrity plastic surgeons Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif returned on Tuesday night, and they certainly brought out the big guns for the second season premiere.

That's because they treated none other than Tiffany Pollard from I Love New York, who was in dire need of some reconstructive surgery on her breasts.

Once Tiffany really started to gain fame from her VH1 reality shows, she decided to get her boobs done, but has regretted ever since!

And on account that she was already going under the knife anyway, she had the good doctors fix her deviated septum while they were at it!

So how successful were the surgeries??

Suddenly Jake Gyllenhaal!

Jake Gyllenhaal's only 34 year old and he's already an Oscar nominated actor, so it seems as though he's changed his passions from the screen to the stage!

That's because after making his Broadway debut in Constellations opposite Ruth Wilson back in January, Jake is taking his talents back to New York to star in Little Shop of Horrors.

The cult favorite is being produced by Encores! Off-Center and will be the actor's first time starring in a musical, so we're really anxious to see how it plays out!

Christy Mack Details The Horrific Abuse She Endured At The Hands Of Her Ex & MMA Fighter Jon 'War Machine' Koppenhaver — Read The Emotional Story HERE

| Filed under: Sad SadViolence

no title

We can't even begin to imagine the mental and physical pain Christy Mack has endured.

[ Watch: MMA Fighter War Machine Laughs In Court When His Ex Recounts Him Sexually Assaulting Her ]

On April 14, Christy, the former girlfriend of MMA fighter Jon 'War Machine' Koppenhaver, spoke out on the INSANE domestic abuse Koppenhaver exacted against her last August.

Obviously, the details of the attack, which left the adult entertainer with 10 broken ribs and a ruptured liver, are excruciating to read.

Mack bravely recalled:

"Jon became abusive about four to five months in, but by that time I was totally in love with him. So, so in love. The first time I thought, 'Oh it'll never happen again.' The day after, he stayed home from training and coddled me. After every time he would hit me, those were the best days of our relationship."

Wow, that sounds similar to the stories of many other domestic abuse survivors.

As for the aftermath of that horrible day in August, Christy explained:

"I didn't look in the mirror for weeks. Just feeling my face, I knew it wasn't right. So when I'd look in the mirror, it's not me — that person wasn't me. It's so hard to go every day without being you anymore."

So. sad.

As if the mental strain of the incident wasn't enough, the gorgeous gal also had to adjust to a whole new body — that's how badly War Machine beat his ex.

We commend Christy for opening up about her horrific ordeal and we hope her story acts as a warning for those in similar situations.
