A Fresh New Argentina, Of Sorts, For Evita At The Arsht

This national tour of the 2012 Broadway revival of Evita is a strong fresh edition that gives the raw material a thorough makeover but does not deconstruct the piece. The experience is helped immeasurably by the clarion voices of the lead actors. The only facets missing most of the time are the electric sizzle and raging passions that marked earlier productions.

Don’t Bother Knocking, This House Is Rocking

If Boomers wondered why their parents feared rock ’n’ roll, Million Dollar Quartet provides a visceral object lesson of the exhilarating danger, galvanizing defiance and the electrifying sexuality of rhythm and blues.

Musical Shrek Is Silly Fun But Not As Satisfying As The Film

Don’t go looking for the sassy charming movie Shrek in its musical incarnation now appearing in the Broadway Across Miami tour at the Arsht Center for one week only.
