CD REVIEW: Adam Pascal & Anthony Rapp: Acoustically Speaking

Reviewer: Emily Garside Recorded live at New York’s Feinstein’s/54 Below, Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp reunite for an acoustic mix of Broadway and Rock-pop.

CD REVIEW: Total Faith – Faith Prince Live from the Royal Room at the Colony

Reviewer: Mark Clegg [rating:4.5] Faith Prince shot to Broadway stardom with her show-stealing performance as Miss Adelaide opposite Nathan Lane in the 1992 revival of Guys and Dolls. In the intervening two decades, Lane’s career on both stage and screen has rocketed and although Prince’s star has not ascended quite so high, her career has been constant and diverse. This ...
