Carolee Carmello to lead KIMBERLY AKIMBO National Tour

Fantastic news. Carolee will be incredible!

Why did High Fidelity Flop?
 Jul 2 2024, 05:43:31 PM

Poor Will Chase. I saw High Fidelity twice and loved it. Then, a little over two years later, Will Chase opened The Story of My Life, which only ran a weekend. Saw that gem four times and loved it. It's so rare for shows to have this short a run nowadays. KPOP and Lempicka are probably the only two comparable.

THE WIZ 2024 Broadway Cast Recording Thread
 Jun 14 2024, 05:00:46 PM

"I still think it’s criminal they didn’t record the Emerald City sequence, it’s some of the best music in the whole show"

This was one of the main reasons why I was excited to hear this album. Supremely disappointing that it was not recorded. Loved that Act 2 opening.

"How long until we get LEMPICKA: The Reunion Concert! ???"

I know this post was probably half meant as a joke, but I can almost guarantee there would be more interest in this reunion concert than there was for How to Dance in Ohio.

CABARET at the Kit Kat Club Previews
 Apr 3 2024, 03:05:19 PM

Good question. I had bought my first preview tickets on SeatGeek, but went to the box office to have them printed out prior to the performance. And I purchased my second set of tickets at the box office and had them printed out. The majority of people entering the theater will probably be using their phones as their tickets, which will make them harder to hide in their pockets or bags. I always prefer a printed ticket to a digital ticket because I tape them to the inside of the playbill after

CABARET at the Kit Kat Club Previews
 Apr 3 2024, 01:57:04 PM

The sticker did leave a sticky residue on my phone case, which is slightly raised above the lenses themselves. When I got home, I had to take my phone out of the case and wash the case with soap twice to ensure the sticky residue washed off. When I see the show again on May 2, I will just leave my phone in my pocket the entire time to avoid having to use the sticker.

The show itself was fantastic, by the way, as was the entire experience, and I'm looking forward to seeing it a seco

APPROPRIATE Transferring to the Belasco

It doesn't appear that they are selling the balcony, which is unfortunate, because those seats would have been more affordable. The cheapest mezzanine seats excluding fees are $94 each.

Times They Are A Changin opened 17 years ago today
 Oct 27 2023, 10:14:35 AM

Saw it twice in previews - once with Caryn Lyn Manuel (who I believe only played 9 previews) and once with the far superior Lisa Brescia. Then I went a third time to the closing performance a few weeks later. It was definitely a mess!

NY City Center Encores 2024 season: ONCE UPON A MATTRESS with Sutton Foster (adapted by Amy Sherman-Palladino), JELLY'S LAST JAM, and TITANIC
 Oct 17 2023, 01:54:48 PM

I was tenth or so in line at the box office today...glad i have secured my tickets and looking forward to all three productions!

My first introduction to Encores was A Tree Grows in Brooklyn in 2005 and I am proud to say I have seen every single one since then.

Prima Facie recoups investment
 Jun 20 2023, 03:00:23 PM

Reading this news today made me so happy. This is such an excellent play with incredibly important subject matter and Jodie Comer is giving the best performance I've seen in at least the last decade. She deserves to be an Olivier and Tony winner for this role and I'm thrilled that the show will go down in the history books as a hit that recouped its investment. I have already seen the show three times and have tickets for one more time its final week. Congratulations to Jodie and the

Anyone seeing a first performance post-Tony win tonight?
 Jun 13 2023, 03:30:12 PM

"They're gonna have to hold the show a good minute tonight when the lights go up on Kimberly Levaco and her candy necklace!"

I will be there at Kimberly Akimbo tonight and definitely looking forward to contributing to the love fest from the audience. It will be my second post-Tony performance for a Best Musical winner - the last was In the Heights in 2008.

Drama League 2023 Distinguished Performance Award
 Apr 24 2023, 06:07:50 PM

As soon as my friend and I left Prima Facie on April 12, he turned to me and said "Jodie Comer just won the Tony." My response to him was: "Jodie Comer just won the Drama League award!"

Will we ever see a Broadway revival of August: Osage County?
 Mar 27 2023, 04:10:44 PM

I saw it three times on Broadway - Deanna Dunagan, Estelle Parsons and Phylicia Rashad. All were fabulous and the play itself is outstanding. I would love to see a revival of this show, but it must be a full scale production - we've all had enough of this bare stage with chairs and turntables trend.

Fantastic news! Love Judy Kuhn so much.

PARADE On Broadway - News & Discussion Thread
 Feb 23 2023, 04:04:45 PM
"I have been a fan of this musical since the original production and can’t wait to see this revival! Just the other day I found out that there was a miniseries from 1988 called The Murder of Mary Phagan starring Jack Lemmon and Peter Gallagher. I had no idea about this! Has anyone seen it before? The whole thing is on YouTube and may check it out before revisiting the musical."

Wow...I've never heard of this either! And I just looked it up and it won three Emmy Awards. Definitely want t

SUNSET BOULEVARD at the Kennedy Center
 Feb 6 2023, 07:38:40 PM

"Follies was in the opera house which is much bigger."

I saw both Follies and Ragtime at the Kennedy Center, pre-Broadway and unless my memory is failing me, I would swear they both played at the Eisenhower.

Kelli O'Hara, Brian d'Arcy James to star in DAYS OF WINE & ROSES musical from LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA team
 Feb 2 2023, 12:16:27 PM

"I've been having trouble accessing them since noon...Not seeing them offered for any date."

Me too...and I've been checking every date for the first couple of weeks. Nothing at $25 offered. I guess we were too late. Frustrating.

New Cast Album Signing In The Theater?
 Jan 6 2023, 12:15:54 PM

I attended the "A Little Night Music" cast album signing in the theater...if my memory serves me, I waited outside for hours to ensure I got in. And yes, Sondheim was there.

A few years prior to that, there was also an in-theater cast album signing for the Cerveris/LuPone "Sweeney Todd," which I also attended. Sondheim was also in attendance.

I absolutely loved these events (as well as the ones in Barnes & Noble) and I hope they can return (masks

Criss, Hall, Karimloo, and Pfeiffer to star in CHESS Benefit Concert
 Dec 13 2022, 10:33:40 AM

Neal Ben-Ari is also the standby for Mark Jacoby as the older Neil Diamond in A Beautiful Noise, currently playing at the Broadhurst, where Chess held its benefit last night. He has 9 Broadway credits going back to 1981, including The First and Roza!

Confirmed: Radcliffe to lead MERRILY revival at NYTW
 Dec 2 2022, 09:49:22 AM

Awe, thanks, smidge!

I don't post too often anymore, but I am still reading this message board every day and am proud to be a long time member! And I still see everything on Broadway. I have a perfect record going back almost 18 years and have no plans on stopping now! I was just so blown away by this Merrily production that I had to chime in. It is certainly the hottest ticket in New York right now, and deservedly so! I hope everyone who wants to gets the chance to see it in t
