Travel Into the Woods with the Roxy

 

I have been impressed by the Roxy Regional Theatre’s performances many times in the past, however they have exceeded all of my expectations with their latest production; Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. It is one of their best shows yet!

This musical play merges the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales by adding a new story line involving a baker and his wife who are unable to have a child, and their troubles with a neighbor. It then follows the characters to see what results when the their wishes are granted. Will it be happily ever after, or will it end up being their worst nightmare.

For Valentine’s Day – “The Truth About Cats & Dogs”

 

A Valentine’s Day DVD Recommendation!

Movie poster for The Truth about Cats and DogsGuys, Here’s a suggestion that’s sure to be a hit with your significant other! Get a copy of the DVD of the 1996 movie, “The Truth About Cats and Dogs.”

The movie is a romantic comedy loosely based on the classic French novel, “Cyrano De Bergerac.” Most of us are likely more familiar with the Steven Martin adaptation “Roxanne,” only here the gender of the love-smitten” and “the pursued” roles are reversed.

Janeane Garofalo and Uma Thurman gives this “Chic Flick” real entertainment value. Their portrayals are tight and really engaging.

Ben Chaplin plays the role of “Brian,” the duped love object of Garofalo’s “Abby.” He is captivating in his pursuit of his dream girl. The real question is, “Which Abby is the one he really loves?” Fortunately for him, “Hank, the rollerskating dog” helps him figure it out! «Read the rest of this article»

 

Our review of Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story

 

The Roxy Regional TheatreThe Roxy Regional Theatre is now showing Buddy, The Buddy Holly Story. I attended the opening nights show and here is my review of the production.

I walked into the theatre and was immediately transported through time to the late 1950’s by this incredible Amber Wallace set. I have never been disappointed with any Roxy set, but my favorites are all Amber Wallace’s creations. Her best work in my opinion, was the sets that she did for last years Miss Saigon and Disney’s Beauty and the Beast.

This show covers Buddy Holly’s life from his rise to success in 1957 to his death in the 1959 plane crash which also took the lives of Rock and Roll legends Ritchie Valens and J. P. Richardson who was also know as the Big Bopper. This plane crash was immortalized in the Don Mclean song American Pie. «Read the rest of this article»
