THEATER REVIEW: “Les Misérables" at Lamb's Players

Lamb’s Players Theatre has achieved the near-impossible again, with an inventive, streamlined and musically stunning production of the huge Broadway and West End hit “Les Misérables.”

Winner of eight Tony Awards in 1987 (it ran 16 years on Broadway), “Les Misérables” is based on Victor Hugo’s sprawling novel of crime and punishment, redemption, bravery, revolution, revenge and even love, set between Napoleon’s defeat at Waterloo and the Paris uprising of 1832. Book, music and lyrics are by Claude-Michel Shönberg and Alain Boublil, with English lyrics by Herbert Kretzmer.

THEATER REVIEW: “Pageant” at Cygnet Theatre

“Take a look at the girls,” croons emcee Freddie Cavalier (Phil Johnson), by means of introduction to this year’s Miss Glamouresse beauty pageant in which six lovelies compete for the crown.

They do look pretty spiffy in Shirley Pierson’s flowing evening gowns (constructed by a platoon of “sewing ladies” nicely credited in the opening speech). From Miss Deep South’s elegant pearl gray top with full-skirted rosette number to Miss West Coast’s eye-poppingly bright multicolored jobbie, it’s going to be a colorful evening.

THEATER REVIEW: Moonlight’s “Mary Poppins”

Everybody’s favorite flying nanny lands at Moonlight Stage Productions’ outdoor amphitheatre through Aug. 2 in an energetic, high-stepping production that makes up in terrific performances and production numbers what it lacks in movie magic.

You remember “Mary Poppins” from P.L. Travers’ classic children’s books and the 1964 Disney film. Though the flying nanny is the star, this is really a didactic tale about the parenting of two children – Jane (Abby DeSpain) and Michael Banks (Nate Carmen), who have gone through six nannies in four months.

GLAAD flunks major movie studios over LGBT issues

GLAAD has released its second annual Studio Responsibility Index (SRI), a report that maps the quantity, quality and diversity of images of LGBT people in films released by the seven largest motion picture studios during the 2013 calendar year.

GLAAD found that of the 102 releases from the major studios in 2013, 17 of them included characters identified as lesbian, gay, or bisexual. The majority of these characters were minor roles or cameos, and GLAAD found that many of these were outright defamatory representations.
