On Twitter last month, two of my colleagues in the American Theatre Critics Association tweeted an article from the New York Daily News stating that singing musical theatre songs helped “stave off the effects of” Alzheimer’s disease. Singing show tunes helps fight off dementia: study https://t.co/s6oyyh24OS — Frank Rizzo (@ShowRiz) November 25, 2017 Singing show tunes helps fight off dementia: study (But what does it do to the listeners?) https://t.co/m6rC77CL65 — New York Theater (@NewYorkTheater) November 26, 2017 Sounds great, right?

SALT LAKE CITY — For years fans have fallen in love with different versions of Newsies. But whether their favorite iteration of the story is the film, the Broadway production and its tour, or the recording of the stage version that is now available on Netflix, there is still plenty that is surprising (and delightful) in the current production of the stage version at Pioneer Theatre Company. Newsies tells the story of newsboys working in New York in 1899, as they scrape by on the pennies each day that they get from selling newspapers on the street. Their hand-to-mouth existence...Read More
PROVO — In a crowded time of the theatre season, the Covey Center for the Arts has chosen a show that distinguishes itself from a sea of Christmas Carol productions: Plaid Tidings. This jukebox musical uses the smooth sounds of the 1950’s in an attempt to bring Christmas joy to audience members.

Their careers (and lives) tragically cut short by an automobile accident, the men are thrilled to be on stage again to entertain an audience. If...Read More
PROVO — For those who find the title of The Mill on the Floss strange, it is important to know that the center of the main character’s life is her family’s mill. Situated on the River Floss (in northern England), the play tells a story of country life in the mid-1800’s. The Mill on the Floss is adapted from the George Eliot novel of the same name.

When the play begins, Maggie is an untamed, wild spirit, and she bristles up against...Read More
OREM — Dolly Levi is back where she belongs: on the Hale Center Theater stage in Orem. One of the last great musicals of the golden age of Broadway, Hello, Dolly! is composer and lyricist Jerry Herman‘s best known work, and it gets an excellent production that even the meddling Dolly would have difficulty improving. Hello, Dolly! tells the story of the widowed Dolly Gallagher Levi who is completing a lengthy mourning period after the death of her husband, Ephraim. Chief among her goals is to find a second husband for herself. Her target: the wealthy “half-a-millionaire” Horace Vandergelder. Meanwhile, Horace’s...Read More
