Review  – Oklahoma!

Review – Oklahoma!

✭✭✭✭✩ Long but Strong:
It’s seventy years since Oklahoma! first took to the Broadway stage, with its gorgeous, downbeat opening of Oh What a Beautiful Morning, sung by cowboy Curly to the butter-churning Aunt Eller.

Review – Copacabana

Review – Copacabana

★★★☆☆  Passionate:

The music and the passion are right in place in Allegro’s bright production of Copacabana at the Church Hill Theatre until Saturday. But while the fashion is frothy – and the dresses are, on occasion, “cut down to there” – it doesn’t go as far in that direction as it might.
