Departures:A Song Cycle – 4 stars ****

Pippin – 3 stars ***

Riptide: The Slasher Musical – 4****

August 25, 2014 |

A fabulous, cheesy, bloody, gory teen slasher musical with great music, clever lyrics and comedy delights – what more could you ask for?

All of the stereotypes are here from the dumb blonde who isn’t to the local hillbillies. The … Read More
