The playwright’s estate has allowed Lloyd to make ‘subtle cuts’ to Osborne' text, but the director stressed it’s not a complete reworking of the play that originally starred Nicol Williamson and Eileen Atkins in the roles now taken by Hodge and Karen. As directed by Des Mc Anuff, the Festival’s artistic chief, Superstar seemed as fresh as the day it was written more than four decades ago by Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

John Larroquette seems to be having a blast, and the pairing of Larroquette and Radcliffe is inspired.Daisey doesn’t hold back in damning the company that creates products he and all of us love, but the simplicity and beauty in his presentation (including a subtle but stunning lighting design) takes the story of the biggest company on earth Into a human and humane level. With a beautiful young and colour-blind cast full of soaring voices to spare, Molly Smith invigorates Oklahoma! Once (Musical) – New York Theatre Workshop – Off-Broadway, New York, NY Music & Lyrics by Glen Hansard & Markéta Irglová, Book by Enda Walsh, Based on the Motion Picture Written & Directed by John Carney, Directed by John Tiffany, Movement by Steven Hoggett Either you will roll your eyes to sleep, or, like me, this magical little musical will keep melting your heart until you succumb into its romantic haze.into a gloriously exciting show, and gives Eleasha Gamble, Nicholas Rodriguez, Cody Williams, June Schreiner, and Nehal B. With direction and movement from John Tiffany and Steven Hoggett (of my favorite stage play production Black Watch), the musical stage version of the movie takes the simple love story and transcends the cutesy premise with a deepening richness through the magic of a theatrical staging, and Enda Walsh beefs up the stories and side characters and improves upon the film it's based upon.Strangely profound for a play with a tiger at its centre. His Greatness (Play Revival) - independent Artist Repertory Theatre at Factory Studio Theatre - Toronto, ON - Review Written by Daniel Mac Ivor, Directed by Edward Roy A play about Tennessee Williams' in Canada near the end of his career, his dutiful assistant, and the male escort hired for the premiere of a reworking of one of Williams' later failed plays.Writer Daniel Mac Ivor joins the cast in an intimate but grand mess of a night within William's life.Ashford didn't quite have the pacing right (but has cut and edited the show down several minutes creating a smoother show) but what the show lacked in finesse, it overcompensated in energy, a little like it's central character! Clybourne Park (Play) - Woolly Mammoth Theatre - Washington, D. Written by Bruce Norris, Directed by Howard Shalwitz A sort of sequel to Raisin in the Sun, Pulitzer Prize winner Clybourne Park is a clever, and surprisingly hysterical follow-up to Lorraine Hansberry moving classic (pun not initially intended but works, so why not?! The beauty of Clybourne Park is that we get both the historical telling, that looks at the other side of Raisin in the Sun, at the house being sold to the black family.

Act 2 fasts forwards to current times when we can no longer decipher if our prejudices are based on racial factors, economics, or simply architectural preferences which Norris sets up a thought provoking play without losing any entertainment value.

His Greatness lets you decide, but it's fascinating either way. How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (Musical Revival) - Al Hirschfeld Theatre - Broadway, New York, NY - *Biased Review* Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser, Book by Abe Burrows, Jack Weinstock and Willie Gilbert, based on the book by Shepherd Meade, Directed and Choreographed by Rob Ashford I might be totally biased (see intro above) but I had an absolute blast watching one of my favorite musicals come to life in a delightfully spirited and energetic production (with some amazing choreography from Ashford).

The satirical tone is a little too toned down for my taste, and Anderson Cooper muddles the role of the narrator (missing most of the comical beats) but an amazing supporting cast of Ellen Harvey, Rose Hemingway, Christopher J.

So take my review as what you want, since I've involved myself with the show, but I truly did love it (and went back to see it 4 times (and not free! As always, I consider shows I saw in 2011, whether they opened or not during that year.

I however do not consider shows I've already seen in previous years (unless it's a brand new production) and that includes shows: Candide, Black Watch, Spring Awakening, Hair, Billy Elliot, The Lion King, As You Puppet, Chicago, The Importance of Being Earnest, War Horse, Traces as seen in previous lists: Best of Stage 2010 Best of Stage 2009 Best of Stage 2008 Best of Stage 2007 And I had my personal record this year, seeing 158 shows, and with so much good stuff, I had to add an Honourable Mentions at the end of the list, any of them which would have easily made my Top 20 in other years.

Williams holds back and integrates himself perfectly with the rest of the excellent cast, including Arian Moayed and Brad Fleischer, while Kaufman, using Derek Mc Lane's beautifully simple yet epic feeling set, directs a layered and thought provoking play that is both moving and disturbing.
