BroadwayWorld: HANDS ON A HARDBODY

What is the American dream? Some would say two kids, a house with a white picket fence, and a dog.

DC Metro Theater Arts: HANDS ON A HARDBODY

Keegan Theater, renowned for its slam-dunk productions of well-known musicals such as Chicago, Hair, and American Idiot, now delivers the goods with one more out of the way… and it’s a winner.

It’s sure to charm even the steeliest of audience members, but that’s only one side of the coin. The

The Washington Post: THE BALTIMORE WALTZ

Excellent cast steps up in THE BALTIMORE WALTZ The Baltimore Waltz prances in circles around its subject, which is the death of playwright Paula Vogel’s brother, Carl, in 1988.
