Metro Weekly: CHICAGO

Somewhere inside Roxie Hart’s first number [of The Keegan Theatre’s new production of Chicago], “Funny Honey,” during which the brazen, fame-craving floozy introduces her sorry sap of a husband Amos, it dawns that this Roxie is bananas. Portrayed by Maria Rizzo with a bold mix of moxie and murderous rage, she’s Roxie unhinged. And she

The Washington Post: CHICAGO

If there’s a bulletproof musical, “Chicago” is it.

Washington Post: Big Fish

A bittersweet story about family dynamics. A slew of wild fables about a witch, a human cannonball, and more.

The Washington Post on ‘Big Fish’: The magical movie spawned a musical that’s coming to D.C.

When Tim Burton’s “Big Fish” was released, songwriter Andrew Lippa was so moved by the movie that he immediately wanted to turn it into a musical. Ten years later, in 2013, his wish came true when the show he wrote with the original screenwriter, John August, opened on Broadway. After a modestly successful run there, the musical has enjoyed a second life in regional theaters, and it will finally have its D.C. premiere when it opens Saturday at the Keegan Theatre.
