White Christmas review

  If the holidays fill you with nostalgia for the sweeter, simpler days of yesteryear, White Christmas at the Broadway Palm will be just your cup of eggnog. The show is brimming with sequined costumes, tapping feet, and corny dialogue. It’s also filled with the music of Irving Berlin, and no matter how sophisticated we […]

Nothing New Under the Sun

  Having seen a touring company of Evita many years ago, I couldn’t wait to find out how Broadway Palm would handle such a big production. What I found was that watching the spectacle unfold from the closer perspective of a relatively small venue gave me an even greater appreciation. The two leads, April Monte […]

Rockin’ and Groovin’ at Broadway Palm

Broadway Palm is running Show Boat through February 14. Classic American musical theater. Just hearing Ol’Man River would be worth the […]

Where it All Began

The show at Broadway Palm re-creates a moment in music history when four men who were superstars before there was such a term got together at the recording studio where it all began. Sun […]

Thrift Store/Metaphor

How fitting that Second Chances: The Thrift Shop Musical had its premiere in the week when Pope Francis is in the United States urging everyone to love their neighbors. The play by Broadway Palm paterfamilias Tom Ross Prather poignantly demonstrates heart and humanity. The plot takes us through a year in the life of a […]
