     Cerqua Rivera Dance is stepping 'In the Depths'
    Three women, dressed in slips, get ready to go out for the evening, each examining herself in an invisible mirror and reacting to the process and the prospect. Pretty retro, right? Maybe a dance set to the 1958 "I Enjoy Being a Girl"? But...

    Review of musical "Pussycat" at Broward Stage Door Theatre
    It really should not work. “What’s New Pussycat? The Soundtrack of an Era,” through Sept. 28 at Broward Stage Door Theatre in Coral Springs, should be a cheese platter, a real clunker where oldies but goodies go to die, die, die a...

  • Uncovering the mysteries of Steely Dan

    When it comes to recreating the world of iconic '60/'70s chart toppers, Sharen Davis has become the go-to guru of sartorial splendor, especially when it comes to outfits that pop on stage. For "Dreamgirls," the musical inspired by the mercurial rise of...
  • On Theater: A rocking 'Creation' at OCC

    Over 40 years ago, Arthur Miller — long past his great dramatic play period — wrote the satirical comedy "The Creation of the World and Other Business," which didn't create much business on Broadway, running for just 20 performances....
  • Review: 'Get on Up' ★★★ 1/2

    Review: 'Get on Up' ★★&#9733 1/2
    Everything about "Get on Up," a provocatively structured and unusually rich musical biopic, is a little better, a little less formula-bound, a little sharper than the average specimen in this genre. I'm surprised it's this good, given that director Tate...
