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.

Torch Song: Under a Broken Red Neon Sign, A Love Story. By Ross It all begins, under the broken neon red Torch Song sign, with the illusion of perfection with big dash of fabulousness, well, one that is under construction. A drag queen preparing in front of a mirror for her performance to come. Applying the layers […]
Mudbound: A Movie Review That Became Something Quite Different By Ross Mudbound is an harrowing epic piece of American filmmaking by director, Dee Rees.

The Florida Project: A Movie Review The Antithesis of the Magic Kingdom By Ross Close by where the tale of “The Florida Project” meanders along, there is a land that is next door, but essentially far far away, the Magical Kingdom of Disney World.
