    At Xl, It's Not Your Grandmother's Bingo

    No one does Bingo like Murray Hill and Linda Simpson, who punctuate the game with banter, insults, and special prizes from the 99-cent store leading up to a big cash prize that people buy lots of extra $2 boards to desperately try and win. The two lovable oddballs have been hosting Bingo Tuesdays a ... More >>

    R. Kelly's Write Me Back Rides The Retro Soulacoaster

    Around this time last year, I saw R. Kelly at the Prudential Center, and it was one of the most impressive live spectacles I've been witness to in my two-plus decades of attending big arena shows; there was an onstage bar complete with cocktail-shaking mixologist, an acapella reworking of his 1994 s ...

    Jersey Shoresical Is Not A Boresical

    ​The raucously low-class reality show Jersey Shore tends to spoof itself, so a musical mockery of it seemed to me like a bad idea. But the production I just saw at the Actors Playhouse--which was a hit at the Fringe Festival--was a winner, because it's fast-moving, with nonstop music and raun ... More >>
