Top Hat 8 Repertory presents : Legally Blonde The Musical @ The Village Theatre in Orange – Review

Written by Patrick Chavis 

If you want an underdog story told in the most unorthodox way possible, look no further than Legally Blonde: The Musical. On its face the show is plastic nails and a shade of pink that makes Barbie look manly, but if you let it, the show can actually surprise you.

McCoy Rigby Entertainment presents : RENT @ La Mirada Theatre of Performing Arts in La Mirada – Review

Written by Patrick Chavis 

There are shows, and then there are phenomenons. RENT is a phenomenon. Now, being popular does not necessarily equate to being a good show or even being quality material.  In RENT‘s case, the two happen to coincide. The popularity is balanced with a story and a “realness” that the happy-go-lucky musical genre doesn’t always tackle. Still this “realness” does not go that far. Continue Reading
