  • Ashley Park, Taylor Louderman & Kate Rockwell in Mean Girls
    Mean Girls
    August Wilson Theatre
    No one is more surprised than I! Mean Girls—a big, noisy musical (not my thing), based on a hit teen movie (not my thing since…well, never), awash in stereotypes like the dumb girl, the hot boy, the... Read more
  • The Lion King
    Disney's The Lion King
    Minskoff Theatre
    NOTE: This review was written by The Lion King alum Kyle Wrentz in celebration of the show's 20th Anniversary on Broadway... A sunrise on a day. It could be a Saturday or a Wednesday, but regardless... Read more
  • The Play That Goes Wrong

  • Hamilton
    Richard Rodgers Theatre
    I saw Hamilton Wednesday last at the Richard Rogers Theatre. Last night I went to bed with Hamilton. I had Lin-Manuel Miranda's script all to myself and devoured it. There is so much information, not... Read more
  • Disney's Aladdin
    New Amsterdam Theatre
    In the UK, there is a Christmas tradition in British theatre called Pantomime. This phenomenon is foreign to American audiences, and is perhaps difficult to sell convincingly, but here goes: A... Read more
