Perez Reviews: 'Manhattan Parisienne'

no title
Alain Boublil
is the librettist and lyricists behind such HUGE musicals as Les Miserables and Miss Saigon - and the legendary Frenchie just premiered a new work in Manhattan, appropriately titled Manhattan Parisienne.

However, do not go into this show expecting a massive chorus or flying helicopters. Manhattan Parisienne is is super intimate - a mostly two person musical in a small theater. There are no reserved seats! General admission!

The show is a sweet and simple modern-day love fantasia between a French woman and an American man and the musical features some staples of the French and American songbook. From Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg to the Gershwins and Sinatra.

The story is almost irrelevant, though. Manhattan Parisienne is all about the song selections. And they prove to be a very enjoyable experience!

Performed without intermission, the show is like a fancier cabaret act. And because it's mainly all about the songs, our one big note is…. while the cast features some great singers, the intimacy of the theater and the grandness of these songs called for some PHENOMENAL singers. There is a big difference between great and phenomenal singers.

However, this cast did a fine job and it's a more than fine show!

With some bigger voices or bigger names, though, this could play to much larger audiences.

Manhattan Parisienne is very enjoyable - especially for a date night!

The Colbert Report Series Finale Ends With A… Musical Number & Immortality?!? See All The Incredible Moments HERE!

the colbert report finale lead

What a sad, sad day for The Colbert Report fans!

Last night, December 18 was the series finale of Stephen Colbert's nine-year-long run on Comedy Central.

However, never one to do anything small, the show was a star-studded affair that found Patrick Stewart, Andy Cohen, James Franco, Jon Stewart, Bill Clinton and literally SO MANY OTHERS singing We'll Meet Again to help Stephen off to immortality.

Seriously, the host of the show (officially) can't die because HE killed Death last night in the last segment of Cheating Death.

David Letterman Says Goodbye To Darlene Love And Her Incredible Recurring Holiday Performances!

no title

Tears!

This tribute to the musician who has been appearing on the Late Show under David Letterman's watch for almost thirty years is SO heartwarming!

That person is singer Darlene Love and her awesome song Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) which she has sang once a year on the late night show since 1986!!!

And after this year — it'll be her last time EVER performing for the show (unless Colbert keeps her)!

​Meryl Streep's Stay With Me From Disney's Into The Woods Will Haunt You! Hear It HERE!

This sounds AH-mazinggggg!!!

Meryl Streep is the voice behind the Witch's melody in Disney's new flick Into The Woods, and we have the audio from it!

The Stephen Sondheim song, Stay With Me, is very emotional at what seems to be a pivotal point in the flick where the Witch casts a sad spell.
