NINE & BYE BYE BIRDIE at Kennedy Center - Cast?  Apr 16 2024, 06:27:35 PM

He was pretty terrible in it when he did the one-night concert for Transport Group last year.

Karen Akers, on the other hand, was STILL a fantastic Luisa!


Santino was indeed shockingly bad in the part. The role has enough laissez-faire in the writing. And then we got

I only wish there were more songs in the second half, but I could have sat there rapt for another 3 hours at least!

Side note: it's fun to realize that Kendall Roy and his beleaguered assistant Jess are both currently dazzling on the Great White Way!

I’m wondering if it’ll be big names like: TImothee Chalamet, Austin Butler, Chris pine, Harry Styles…

and: Emma Watson or Margot Robbie…

any idea of who you think they’ll be casting?



Patti LuPone Will Return to Broadway in THE ROOMMATE Opposite Mia Farrow  Apr 11 2024, 03:19:48 PM

Bettyboy72 said: "No interest in this snooze property of a play paired with two histrionic actresses. Mia is long past her acting prime in my opinion. Again, just my opinion, so don’t crucify me.

I can’t even imagine the inflated prices they will be charging for this so called event. I wonder if they will even get along. Both require a lot of attention.


But not as much attention as you require, apparently.

Even with DR out of Merrily, it sold out and had the fourth highest average ticket price. i am still assuming that it will win tony awards for Revival, Director, Actor and Supporting Actor at a minimum. I doubt that LM will win, based on her attendance track record. Coming fresh off of multiple Tony awards and (presumably) and entirely sold out run, doesn't it make sense to announce an extension around now. i would imagine th

I have seen almost every original cast since Night Music. I love him as much as everyone. Let's move forward.


Or here's another idea...maybe you could just not go??  Sorry but that's my honest view.

Really??  I've lived here 40+ years and it has never happened to me -- but if it ever does, I would most certainly consider it an attack.  If it happened to you "countless times" in just 7 years -- I think it&

Jonathan Cohen said: "Without diminishing what could well be a very insightful play, asking people to spend money on a play about Putin, while we still can't escape him on the nightly news is kind of a hard sell for me."

I'm pretty sure Putin doesn't get a royalty -- so I don't get the reasoning here? Is he made out to be a misunderstood hero in the play?

Maybe you and the "anti monarchy" guy should start a cover band?

They might as well go ahead and engrave Eddie Redmayne’s and Bebe Neuwirth’s names on Tonys. 

Who performs at the Tony Awards? (predictions)  Mar 30 2024, 01:03:02 PM

I’m guessing that every new musical that’s still running (and that can afford to pay for it) will perform on the Tonys —even if it’s not nominated for Best Musical or Revival. No closed show will perform. It’s the best (maybe only)shot some of these underperforming shows will have to make a splash.

That's not what happened though. They were offered the chance to extend, but Josh Gad decided not to, so they stuck with the original close.

Yes they could have extended at most two weeks due to the load-in and load out schedule which he felt wasn't worth it but there was absolu

Maybe the creepy poster who keeps track here of every absence will now provide daily updates on every aspect of the pregnancy -- thinks like how many baby weight pounds she has gained, when her gyno appointments are scheduled -- right up to how many minutes apart the contractions are and how many centimeters she's dialated??

Hamilton On Broadway 10th Anniversary  Mar 26 2024, 05:14:31 PM

The ability to stream the OBC production on Disney+ sort of negates the need for any sort or cast reunion.  

Plus I doubt many of the cast are longing to "reunite" with (you know who).
