"Untitled Immersive Musical Attraction" from POTO LLC
 Jun 20 2024, 03:01:27 PM

CATSNYrevival said: "I still want to see the Yeston Phantom at Encores or something similar. I doubt this is the Yeston Phantom."

I've often said City Center should do something like the (missed by me) Off-Center series with shows that never played NYC. It would be the perfect place to highlight shows like the Yeston/Kopit Phantom as well as international shows that just wouldn't translate to the US for a full production. Obviously the current economic client


NYP: Broadway sings New York’s blues as crime, costs slow post-COVID comeback

Kad said: "I’m always baffled by the members here who go months or years without posting and almost never have contributed to any discussion of theatre or Broadway, but come out of the woodwork when there’s a political topic. And, coincidentally, they’re always the conservatives."

My guess is that they may be people with multiple accounts who don't want their political opinions to impact how people respond to their comments on non-political disc

Whatever happened to the Peacock show which was supposed to be a murder mystery backstage at a production of Phantom? If that's still moving forward I wonder if this is somehow being tied to that.


Smoking on Stage?
 Jun 7 2024, 10:36:43 AM

BeingAlive44Ever said: "I've seen people smoke on stage in a lot of shows. Hedwig, Jesus Christ Superstar, and Bonnie and Clyde come to mind. Is there a trick to this? Do they just like inhale it a little and immediately exhale or something? I've never smoked so I'm not entirely sure how the mechanics of a cigarette work, but I can't imagine that these actors are smoking on stage eight times a week (or seven in the case of Hedwig, or six/two in the case of many JCS pr

1000% this. As influencers become more and more paid agents of marketing companies it is important to take everything they say with a massive grain of salt.

What is the BEST Show You Have Seen on Broadway
 May 24 2024, 10:23:59 AM

Modifying your question a bit, the best PRODUCTION of a show that I otherwise don't care much for is the Deaf West Big River. Sitting in that theater in the summer of 2003 as the music went silent during the reprise of Waiting for the Light to Shine is one of my top theatrical experiences of all time. Do I have any interest in seeing Big River again? No. But would I see that production a thousand more times? Absolutely.


What is the worst production you have ever seen on Broadway? What is the worst show?

Oh, I forgot Enron... that was really a show that I saw... wow.

and in 2008 I saw the worst musical in my history at least called Glory Days - just awful
"

Finally someone mentioned Prymate! And I'd add The Civil War to the list of worst shows I've ever seen.


Audra McDonald-led GYPSY for 2024-2025 Season?
 May 14 2024, 04:59:19 PM

If this revival happens (and I have my sincere doubts), I actually can imagine some book tweaks being made. Specifically I could imagine them changing some of the vaudeville references to the Black Vaudeville Circuit. But I can't imagine any rewrites that would rise to the level of a newly credited book writer. 


Shows with Ghost writers

Eve Ensler did a lot of work on Wicked and receives royalties for it but not official credit.  


DeBose to host the 77th Annual Tony Awards (2024) at Lincoln Center
 Mar 27 2024, 04:26:13 PM

Her career has completely stalled and she squandered her Oscar win. Will she get people to tune in? Nope. She's not a name. Her attempts at a film career have all flopped (Wish was a huge bomb for Disney and ISS where she was topped billed barely made $6 million in theaters). At this point she should really fire her agent & publicist, and the more time she spends doing theater related stuff the harder it will be for her to break out of the "overeager theater kid who won an Oscar


Congestion pricing will destroy broadway

Any family willing to pay Broadway prices and parking prices in midtown won't blink at the congestion pricing.

No it won't. And people need to learn to take public transportation.


Playwright on HIV Med Strike / NYTW Responds

ErmengardeStopSniveling said: "It's a toothless statement by NYTW, but a statement that never had to be made in the first place.

I hope the playwright is able to get some serious mental health treatment.
"

A lot of organizations / companies are now realizing that they probably shouldn't have taken institutional stances on other issues because it created an expectation of stances on future issues. It's the same reason a lot of corporations are al


Why don’t actors share roles on Broadway?

Which would get the Tony eligibility? That question automatically makes it not a true 50/50 split.

I guess AKA paying all those influencers to promote their shows (including this ticket sale) isn't working out so well so far... shocking


Rob Madge's MY SON'S A QUEER... not at the Lyceum February 2024
 Feb 9 2024, 04:03:17 PM

Impeach2017 said: "It may be reclaimed, but a lot of people are still using it in a very derogatory manner online and elsewhere. Surely, they could come up with a better title than that!"

The title is a direct reference to Rob's time in Les Miz playing Gavroche and the fact that Thenardier (his character's father even if not specified in the musical) has the line "This one's a queer, but what can you do?" (or alternatively "this one's a

Plays about colonial oppression?
 Nov 7 2023, 11:46:00 AM

That's a big theme throughout the plays that make up The Great Game Afghanistan. Especially the one act that shows the westerners sitting around and drawing new national borders without the input of the people who live there.
