So long as there's a rousing production number about peanut allergies, I'm in.

The Forbidden Broadway parody from when it opened was pretty brutal yet spot on, comparing the lyrics of Sun and Moon to that of a Hallmark card.


UK Theatre Criticized For  Jul 9 2023, 09:07:59 PM

You'd be amazed how many people rock up to the theatre (or cinema etc.) with absolutely no clue what they're about to see. Also, just because it's a classic, every performance will be someone's introduction to the material.


Andrew Lloyd Webber on Musicals and Political Correctness  Jun 16 2023, 06:27:04 AM

Interesting that he ignores all the criticism that Jesus Christ Superstar got from all sides back in the day...


WGA strike impact on the 2023 Tonys  May 28 2023, 09:12:16 PM

I had hoped that the writers would have been able to use this as leverage to get their work (and those of their fellow behind the scenes creatives) actively featured and recognised during the broadcast instead of being hidden in an ad break. Ah well.

Who Deserves the Next Lifetime Achievement Tony Award?  Mar 27 2023, 12:39:51 AM

Speaking of the Isabelle Stevenson Award, why hasn't Seth Rudetsky already received it by now?


Broadway shows are becoming embarrassingly cheap-looking  Mar 23 2023, 05:03:17 AM

ErmengardeStopSniveling said: "Phyllis wore a red jumpsuit/pants in the original production which would seem too dated nowadays, hence a c****nay-colored gown."

Thank you SO MUCH for reminding me of this website's hilarious language filter!


Songs Written For The Oscar  Mar 13 2023, 12:59:08 AM

Menken Fan said: "I’m surprised so few of them were ever nominated for an Oscar, let alone won, especially since that seems to be the primary reason for added songs."

Because they rarely add anything of value to the movie

I’m pretty sure that’s how he’s always worked.

Genuinely loving the random salsa curtain call.


Lea Michele 'Special' Tony Award  Jan 12 2023, 08:05:13 AM
I bet they'll try and get her to host.
PLAYBILL Covers of the 2022-2023 Season  Jan 11 2023, 07:42:43 PM

I guess you could say that they’re pictures from home…

I’ll see myself out.


New Cast Album Signing In The Theater?  Jan 6 2023, 09:24:12 PM

Could be SIX? It's apparently coming out on disc on February 3rd; it's popped up on Amazon and some other retailers but haven't heard any official confirmation which is a bit odd for a production that's been all about social engagement. 


PARADISE SQUARE will release an original Broadway cast album  Jan 4 2023, 12:49:17 AM

This whole thing reminds me of when David Yazbek published the West End recording of Women On The Verge on his website for 24 hours.


SOME LIKE IT HOT On Broadway - News & Discussion Thread  Oct 29 2022, 01:26:07 AM

They should remove the two signs on either end of the awning to make up for it, that way you'd be able to better appreciate the three arches.


Bad Overtures?  Oct 28 2022, 09:31:32 PM

I think the 'new' arrangement of Another Op'nin' suits the meta nature of the show, similar to what Rodgers and Hammerstein did with Me and Juliet


Male Lead for New York, New York  Oct 21 2022, 09:14:31 PM

Your mother.

My copy of the script states that "the action is continuous, without intermission"
