A Wild Ride! – The New Colony Presents: Stanley In The Name of Love at the Den Theatre (August 8, 2015)

“Being gay… it’s like … having a dream where she wishes she could be Marilyn Monroe. And she wakes up, and she realizes, she is Marilyn Monroe!” Great lines like this are common in this dancepop musical, Stanley In The Name Of Love. The action ranges from fun and playful to dark and heartbreakingly intense. The expertly crafted original music is a mix of showtunes, Queen, Britney Spears and modern dance pop. Also, at times, they break the fourth wall to the audience’s delight: “It’s not a play, it’s a musical.” “I hate musicals.” This is followed by a long stare at the crowd.  It’s a wild roller-coaster ride of a show that is well worth the price of admission!
