In addition to its memorable […]

SUGAR BABIES: A Sweet Success at the Ritz

Professional Theatre November 7, 2013 at 8:41 pm 0 comments

SUGAR BABIES, now playing to sellout crowds at Haddon Township’s Ritz Theatre, is a tribute to—or revival of—a bygone theatrical form, the burlesque show.

THE DROWSY CHAPERONE Arouses Delight at the Ritz

Professional Theatre April 26, 2013 at 5:35 pm 0 comments

Don’t be fooled by the title. THE DROWSY CHAPERONE, now at Haddon Township’s Ritz Theatre, could suggest a Restoration comedy, a Victorian melodrama, or any number of things. It’s actually a fictional musical within a comedy, and it’s great fun. At the opening, a man, superbly played by Ritz regular […]

Ritz’s SOUTH PACIFIC Is Terrific

Around the Region October 24, 2012 at 11:51 pm 0 comments

Many theatregoers have seen Rodgers and Hammerstein’s SOUTH PACIFIC, perhaps more than once. But you’ve never really seen it until you’ve seen the production at Haddon Township’s Ritz Theatre. This is SOUTH PACIFIC as it should be—as entertaining as ever, but gutsy, lusty, real. From the very beginning, while the […]

If I wasn’t fascinated by the film back story, I was smiling often and tearing up with laughter. […]
