Sometimes I contribute to the EDGE.com network. And this is one of those rare occasions. I used to review theatre for them regularly, but I was having difficulties coordinating show schedules with their editorial team, so I took a break. While I’m not the most qualified person to review this new cast recording (since I haven’t seen the show), I gave it an honost go:
Any Broadway fan has known of Sherie Rene Scott since her breakout role as Sally Simpson in the 1993 Broadway production of “The Who’s Tommy.” From there, she’s gone on to play some high-profile roles on the Great White Way, including, most recently, Ursula in “The Little Mermaid.”
She’s a “semi, semi, semi star,” as she refers to herself in her inventive semi-autobiographical show, “Everyday Rapture,” which has played throughout New York in various states of development at benefits and off-Broadway houses over the past few years.
And now, in a surprise twist, it recently opened on Broadway to rave reviews as a last minute fill-in for another high-profile show that cancelled at the eleventh hour. (That show was “Lips Together, Teeth Apart,” which cancelled over a casting dispute.)
