Moise Morancy, David Levi. All Photos by Monique Carboni. Downtown Race Riot: Pnut’s Slightly Inauthentic Gallery of Characters from the 1970’s New York By Ross I knew nothing about that hot summer day in 1976 New York City when a mob of young men, all white except for one, gathered together in Washington Square Park […]
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.

SpongeBob SquarePants – The Broadway Musical: Can A Sponge Really Be Sexy?!? By Ross Wow. Who would have thunk it? That a musical based on a children’s animated television show, centered on a live square sponge living on the ocean floor would turn out to be such silly and magnificent fun. It’s difficult to imagine. […]
The Parisian Woman: A Modern Dangerous Liaisons – D.C. Style. By Ross for frontmezzjunkies I’ve never really thought about Uma Thurman with any particular strong opinion of her as an actress. I’ve enjoyed her in some of the films such as “Dangerous Liaisons“, “Gattaca“, the spectacular award-winning “Hysterical Blindness“, even the charming and very likable […]
Billy Crudup is the main draw. I have seen him on stage numerous times: Arcadia, The Coast of Utopia, and the thrilling Pillowman (a play that I remember blowing me away), and was thrilled to have the chance to see him in this one-man show at the intimate Vineyard Theatre. David Cale’s exciting Harry Clarke is a magnificently fun ride […]
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, […]
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 […]
Hello Again, and Ronde and Ronde We Go. 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 year when I was a young theatre […]
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 […]
