“The Bardy Bunch”

I think this show may have a cult following that will find it to be “out of sight”! Me? Not so much. The show is 1 hour and 45 minutes without an intermission and perhaps if there were less dancing spirits and blood soaked costumes it could be shaved down to 80 minutes. I do not recommend that you bring children to this show unless you want to pay for therapy later in life (there should be a minimum age requirement).

“Cheers-Live on Stage”

If you were a fan of “Cheers” the TV show that ran from 1982 to 1993, then you are in for a treat. Explore the more simple times of the 80’s and take a trip down memory lane with Diane, Sam and crew. Now, if you have not seen the TV show you may just enjoy this show to see what it was like in the 1980’s and early 1990’s when your Mom and Dad were younger. You may even get some fashion ideas from the iconic Michael McDonald. I think I recognized one of those mid-length silk skirts that used to be in my wardrobe.

42nd Street at Fremont Street Theater Company

Come and see these dancing feet for yourself! This high energy, passionate performance will have you dusting off your old tap shoes and hoofing around the house. A timeless classic performed with such style and enthusiasm is beyond impressive-just fabulous.

I knew I was in for a treat when the live orchestra directed by Kenneth McMullen, got the theatregoers tapping our feet and humming along with the beautifully played prologue. The cast of 32 performers lit up the stage from the get go leaving you yearning for more.

The Sponge Bob Musical

So what would you do if there was only one day left to live and the world was going to be taken over by an unpredictable overflowing volcano? This is the premise of the show. There are scammers like Plankton (Nick Blaemire) who claims to want to save the world in order to make money. The hoarders of money like Mr. Krabs (Carlos Lopez) who thinks money is more important than family and tries to claw his way to the top (no pun intended-no yes it was). His daughter Pearl (Emmy Raver-Lampman) is always trying to get his attention without much success. However, when in sync, the two of them together can really belt out a tune Daddy Knows Best (Alex Ebert of Edward Share and the Magnetic Zeros).
