DC’s Mean Girls: Hey Kellyanne, You Aren’t the Meanest Girl In Town! By Ross This is a full-on feast for the “Mean Girls” film fan club. Even with the meanest girl in town, a certain Kellyanne Conway (“Don’t be fooled because she may seem like your typical selfish, back-stabbing slut faced ho-bag, but in reality, […]
About Steven Ross
Steven Ross, main critic for Frontmezzjunkies.com is a self-proclaimed theatre junkie, traveloholic, and fitness addict, I have been writing about theatre and posting my reviews for years about plays and musicals on Broadway, Off-Broadway and beyond. In NYC, Chicago, Toronto, Washington, DC, London, and anywhere else I find myself sitting in the front mezzanine. The best seats in the house, in my opinion.

JUNK, by Ayad Akhtar, directed by Doug Hughes. Photo Credit: T Charles Erickson. LCT’s Junk: Lots of Money Spent on Some Good Junk. By Ross This is a story of Kings, or so we are told. But not the kind of Kings that we would look up to with respect. Definitely not noble ones or gracious […]
The Band’s Glorious (Re) Visit to Bet Haatikva and My Heart. By Ross Last December at the Atlantic Theater in Chelsea, I was mesmerized. The Band’s Visit was nearing the end of its short Off-Broadway run and I was lucky enough to squeak in before closing. The musical, that is now making its Broadway debut is absolutely and quietly devastating in its magnificence. It has a beauty to its sadness, and a sense of goodness […]
Audra McDonald as Sally (The Actress). Hello Again, and Ronde and Ronde We Go. By Ross Arriving into selected movie theaters nationwide, Hello Again, a movie musical casually based on the 1897 French play, La Ronde by Arthur Schnitzler is a bit of a frustrating nut to crack. Being very familiar with the play (it was done by the senior […]
Who Cares About The Portuguese Kid, It’s Really All About The Greek Bombshell. By Ross To be honest, the only reason I find myself at MTC’s The Portuguese Kid, besides the generosity of those press people at BBB, is that I just adore Sherie Rene Scott. Plain and simple. From the moment I first saw her […]
M. Butterfly: The Western Man Says “Yes?” By Ross In some ways, I think I’m very lucky. At least in this one particular way that I have never seen M. Butterfly on stage before this evening (nor have I seen the 1993 film starring Jeremy Irons). Not that I wouldn’t have most likely loved the Tony Award winning Best […]
THE RED SHOES. Sam Archer (seated) and company. Photo Credit: Johan Persson. Matthew Bourne’s The Red Shoes: To Dance or To Love, The Choice is in the Shoes. @NYCityCenter By Ross To many, including the likes of Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, and my goddess of song, Kate Bush (who created an album called “The Red […]
Alison Fraser. All Photos by Maria Baranova. A Bloody Good Slice of Squeamish For A One Woman Show. By Ross What is it that makes you Squeamish? Is it the bloody red hand-print on the poster for this new play written and directed by Aaron Mark? It certainly is arresting, eye-catching, and provocative, but doesn’t exactly make me Squeamish. […]
Denise Gough (center). Photo by Teddy Wolff. People Places & Things: One Messy But Awesome Addicted Seagull. By Ross for frontmezzjunkies “I am a seagull,” she cries, but no, that’s not quite right. Denise Gough, the Olivier award winning actress, on the other hand, is getting it all perfectly right in the phenomenal People, Places & […]
OEDIPUS EL REY Juan Castano, Julio Monge. Photo by Joan Marcus. Oedipus el Rey: An Exciting Bare Assed Re-Focusing of Greek Destino y Amor Maternal. By Ross for frontmezzjunkies The painted wall and the panels of jailhouse bars tell a whole story before the first actor even jumps up onto the Shiva stage at The Public […]
