Damaged by yet another homogenized film version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s work, few think of The King and I as a piece deeply focused on incipient feminism, international politics and the challenge of leadership. But the national tour at the Arsht Center of the Lincoln Center revival underscores how prescient this was when it was written in 1951.
If there is a corner of Heaven reserved for musical theater nerds who know Stephen Sondheim’s middle name, likely one stage is rotating The Drowsy Chaperone, [title of show] and, as proven by the Broadway Across America national tour now at the Broward Center, Something Rotten.
The tour of The Little Mermaid is engaging and enthusiastic playing at the Broward Center’s Broadway Across America series. The problem is you likely will not understand 10 percent of the words when two or more people are singing.
Validation – the affirmation that what you valued and invested yourself in does matter – is one of the most powerfully effective facets of both entertainment and art.

Broadway Across America’s Dirty Dancing: The Classic Story On Stage on tour at the Broward Center is a flawed and misconceived project with a noticeable lack of fire, but much can be forgiven when the show focuses on hardbodies writhing to infectious pop tunes.
The tour of Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas is a reliable litmus test of just how deep into or disaffected you are with the holiday spirit.
This definitively children’s musical with a few sugar plum crumbs thrown to the adults in tow will likely increase the cheery level of those already in a cheery mood and do little to make merry those fighting the holiday blahs
It’s fortunate that Newsies is a dance-centric musical because much of the lyrics and dialogue were nearly impossible to understand in the national tour visiting the Arsht Center from Broadway Across America. But that dancing is spectacular and well-worth seeing.
After 11 years and counting on Broadway, a decade on the road and on its seventh visit to South Florida, some of the magic should have vanished from the musical Wicked. But the tour has not only maintained much of the magic, but arguably is even more heartfelt and polished than its predecessors.
