JV: It's an honor, really. I am constantly reminded through friends, and fans just how special this show is and has been
I also highly recommend the off-Broadway show, The Woodsman, based on the beloved writings of L. Frank Baum. This show, which
There goes another year in New York with magnificent stage performances. Some performers in the past year have excelled in exceptional storytelling far more than others. A season full of diverse characters ranging from female revolutionaries, sexually curious teenagers, a glittering tornado exit, underappreciated siblings, a one-man band, a Latin pop star, a ton of toe-tapping music, and star-turning performances. As we start ramping up to 2016, I look back at my top 10 theatrical performances of 2015.

There is nothing like the electricity present on a Broadway opening night. Those in attendance at film premieres often say the audience feels charged. In the theater, the actors have a chance to pick up on that. That energy impacts them on the stage.
Weinstein has certainly toiled industriously to render the movie he produced into a hit. Maybe the hordes of Peter Pan fans will turn it into one.
The poster of On the Twentieth Century impressed many. A bunch of people said it seemed fun. Some people recognized Kristin Chenoweth and one of my mother's favorite leading men, Peter Gallagher, and were excited by their presence.
