You’re In Town

Last night I watched Urinetown: The Musical ate Rutgers’ Livingston Theatre Company. And what a show! But what’s with the name? What’s with the public jokes about private things? Let’s find out.

What is she trying to say?

When Beyonce drops an album, she drops an album! But this time she dropped it as a video album! Through the combination of motifs, themes, and settings, Beyonce created a movie of the videos for the songs of her new album to make point and spread some knowledge. What was the point?

Too Young for the Orginal

The remake of a classic. How well was it executed? What did they keep? What did they do differently? Was it good or just as bed as the second one? Was it the one we wanted? Here is a review of Grease: Live

Musical Theater Geeks

The dancing phenomenon, twerking. The dance shot to popularity in the early 2000s while the term became more popularly used in the early 2010s. This song, however, is not so much about twerking through it uses it’s popularity to do something funny.

Review: The Fosters 3.19

Completely different from a typical episode, episode 19 gave a wonderful performance of a well known play while still dealing with the same issues of today with a heartbreaking ending. A review of episode 19 of season 3.

The Fosters

This is a recommendation of the show The Fosters on Freeform (formally known as ABC Family). Here you will find basic info on this amazing show as an introductory post for weekly updates,
