Green Day’s 2010 Tony Award-nominated rock musical “American Idiot,” based on the 2004 Grammy-winning album of the same name with additional tunes from the 2009 Grammy-winning album “21st Century Breakdown,” receives a wonderfully compelling and vigorous presentation courtesy of Dare to Defy Productions at the Victoria Theatre. Under the terrifically fluid, character-specific direction of Angie Thacker and bolstered by expressively exuberant and physical choreography by Kimberly Isaacs, “American Idiot” certainly retains its post-9/11 sociopolitical sting. However, there is much more … [Read more...] about ‘American Idiot’ Review –Dare to Defy Productions – Explosive Angst

The third stays behind in their hometown with this pregnant girlfriend and an uncertain future. Check out this preview … [Read more...] about Check Out American Idiot This Weekend
There’s no need for debate. The Dayton Playhouse’s production of “1776” is a winner. Librettist Peter Stone and composer Sherman Edwards’ 1969 Tony Award-winning musical has always been one of the most artistically challenging shows ever conceived. In addition to requiring the participation of nearly 25 men, the score’s deceptively complicated demands and the sheer commitment to historical accuracy can take its toll on any organization bold enough to attempt it. In fact, it’s been nearly 20 years since this show was last seen in Dayton courtesy of a stellar national tour at the Victoria … [Read more...] about ‘1776’ Review – Dayton Playhouse – Creating America

Hello Everyone, I just got back from a short, revitalizing vacation, and we're ready to tackle the next several weeks (which are currently overbooked). If you still need to see MILES AHEAD or A HOLOGRAM FOR THE KING, you only have until Thursday to see them at THE NEON. Though audiences are loving SING STREET, I'm sad to say that it didn't perform nearly as well as I had hoped. Though it will stick around, it won't be here for long. On Friday, we will open 2 films that will likely only play for one week. First is a film that foodies and doc lovers will devour - CITY OF GOLD. Second is a … [Read more...] about 2 New Gems – CITY OF GOLD & KRISHA – Open Friday + Madonna’s TRUTH OR DARE Turns 25!
