• Lion King Atlanta

    I recently got to see the Lion King and it was everything I’ve ever dreamed of. The Lion King is possibly one of the best kept long-running shows. It’s just as powerful as the day it premiered 21 years ago. One thing I love about this show is its risk-taking evolution. This show has changed and shifted over the years and I think it’s gotten better. When I saw it, I’d noticed there were some changes they’d made to the script. I think this was brilliant choice to keep younger audiences and parents engaged so you don’t know what’s next. From jokes about twitter to Frozen they hit all the…

  • An Aurora Theatre Holiday

    Have you ever wondered how holiday tragedy can be turned into the most hilarious 90 minutes you’ve had in a theatre? If you have, the Aurora Theatre has the thing for you. The Aurora Theatre’s funniest shows to date are “The 12 Dates of Christmas” and “A Christmas Carol”. Both shows are performed by only one actor and they’re brilliant. Breaking the Myth of the One Man/Woman show When most think of a one person show they think it’ll be someone’s life story or even a more standup like setting. In some instances, it is but sometimes you luck up on an incredible show. I found this pot of Gold…

  • The Color Purple Revival Tour Review

    GUYS! I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve the shows I’ve seen recently but I’m thankful! This has been by far the most diverse theatre season I’ve been able to witness. It’s incredible to see artist of color onstage together. The truth is it doesn’t happen very often but when it does it’s mindblowing! “The Color Purple” Broadway revival national tour is a prime example of the mindblowingness of this (yep I made up a word). A show comprised fully of black people?!? It was like Christmas for me because it’s important to see people like me on stage. People that look like me, sound like me, dance, and…

  • Serenbe Playhouse’s Cabaret review

    Serenbe assembled an all-star cast for Cabaret! They called in the big guns this show and did not disappoint. They went all out in this production from the casting and choreography to the set and lights. It was truly the best production I’ve seen at Serenbe so far. I know that just like they did this year, next year they’re going to one up this show, so I’m ecstatic. They came with it all this year! I don’t know how many other ways I can say how all out this show was. The set was massive and really transports you to the kit kat klub. The lighting for this show…

  • Holler if ya hear me at True Colors Theatre Company

    I’m going start this off by saying this is the best show I’ve ever seen. In any capacity, this is the best show I’ve ever seen and I was blessed to see this show. This is deeper than Phantom or Macbeth for me. This, is the reality of so many people in the world today. There wasn’t any acting happening on stage. This is raw truthful and passionate. It is beautiful. I don’t think any show will ever have as much of an impact on me than this did. To know these are the words of Tupac Shakur is mind blowing. Every single word in the show is masterfully crafted…

  • An American On Tour

      An American in paris on tour brings dance and a timeless love story to the Fox Theater. An American in Paris is based off the 1951 movie starring Gene Kelly. This show was my first dance heavy show and it was phenomenal. This show is absolute gold! It suspended my belief the entire time. I didn’t want to look away from the stage, I didn’t check my phone, I was zoned in and just in the moment. That is the key to a good show, suspend reality. That what your job is in theatre, hold attention, distract from the real world and take them on a journey. That’s what…

  • The Alliance theatre’s Shakespeare in Love

    I had the opportunity to be in the first preview of this incredible show. For those that don’t know what that means, I was in the first audience they’d performed for. I am a part of the Alliance Theatre’s Teen Ensemble so I was giving the amazing opportunity to see this incredible show. I met the cast on their first day of rehearsals and I knew this was going to be incredible but WOW. I’m just going to get into it. Guys this show pulled all the stops. Incredible set pieces, a bed, chandeliers I was in awe the entire time. The one thing that took me out was the…

  • Throw me on the Burnpile and Light me up Review

    It seems like every time I see a show at the Aurora Theatre I leave with my mind blown. The Aurora puts up the most diverse and incredible works. They aren’t afraid to take chances, they trust their artists, and their creative teams. From their trust comes some of the best productions happening in Georgia. This time, they brought “Throw Me On The Burnpile and Light Me up” This time around they blew my mind, gave it back, then blew it again. I got to see “Throw Me on the Burnpile and Light Me Up”, a one woman show starring Taylor M. Dooley. When you hear one man/woman show you…

  • Blackberry Daze at the Horizon Theatre

    I loved Blackberry Daze because it was one of the only times that I’ve seen a show with a cast made up of just people of color. Which I absolutely loved! Blackberry Daze was unapologetic in its telling of a story that sadly still takes place today. It was truthful and didn’t sugarcoat real issues. The show talked about rape, the mistreatment of African American people in the military and the way we tend to neglect the needs of ourselves and others.It held up a mirror to show us “Hey! There has been a lot of absolutely amazing changes in America but there are still somethings that are the same.”…

  • My Second Year at Camp Broadway!

    I can officially say that year 2 of Camp Broadway was the most difficult and rewarding one yet! Camp Broadway was a working challenge which is what I loved most about it. It ever-changing, never really the same thing from day to day. which was problematic at some parts but almost brought us together more as campers and performers. We all know that no production is perfect and that sometimes you must struggle to get something right. Last year I had so much fun because my attention was on relationships and the people I was meeting. Now coming back to it and not only knowing a lot of the campers…
