'CATS: The Jellicle Ball' at PAC reviews

MimiChika said: "Show is extending to October, extension announcement coming next week."

I hope this is accurate from a reliable source.  I've been waiting for an extension as I'm coming to NY in late August and desperately want to see this.  I called PAC earlier today to ask if they're able to say anything about extension plans, and was told it's definitely not extending but that they're hoping for a future life e

SeatGeek already has "The role of Norma Desmond will not be played by Nicole Scherzinger at this performance" showing up for the specific dates - mostly Tuesdays, but looks like an occasional Monday depending on the shifting performance schedule.

Sutton Ross said: "I haven't gone back to Playwrights Horizons since The Strange Loop. And I won't until they stop choosing these awful shows.

Never heard of it, but you're, like,totally right.A Strange Loop, Stereophonic, and Teethwere met with absolutely no buzz, awards, a Pulitzer prize, near universal acclaim, cast recordings, and sold out shows.Ever. Like, they've all been totally forgotten. Absolutefailures, all of 'em.

Let’s not forget Downstate, which is maybe the single best piece of theater I’ve seen in the last 5 years or more

Wouldn’t J. Harrison Ghee also be on that list?

And here I was for a full minute missing the abbreviation and sentence break, and trying to figure out why Chicago named the street after both Ida B. Wells and a Bond villain.

Going to be in NY two weeks later and desperately hoping for another extension. I assume from the fact this wasn’t announced as “Final Extension” that the odds are good…still, this two weeks at a time approach seems unnecessary if they plan to run for much longer.

From the fact that everyone posting seems to think their seats are the perfect location, it sounds like there probably isn't a bad seat in the theater. But since I want to get the most out of this experience (and can't afford the cabaret tables), just asking anyone who has an opinion for the best option between (1) side runway, (2) orchestra, or (3) first balcony above orchestra? Maybe it's the result of that first video promo, but I like the idea of sitting facing the end of the

Thanks for this, phan24. Is it worth the extra $50 to go for rows BB/CC vs. DD/EE?  

Broadway Cruise 3
 Jun 18 2024, 11:22:20 AM

Talent just announced for the Broadway Cruise 3, March 31-April 4, 2025 (Miami to Cozumel): Shoshana Bean, Laura Benanti, Wayne Brady, Alex Brightman, Corey Cott, Caissie Levy, Eva Noblezada, and Solea Pfeiffer. With creatives Jerry Mitchell, Jeffrey Seller, and Will Van Dyke. 

Of course, this is all subject to change based on booking other work, and this year there were several substitutions (albeit great ones, such as Bernadette Peters as a last-minute addition). Personally, I’m hoping Caissie has to step out for a N2N transfer.

He was above the title, right? I assume Broadway Direct will have to refund any presales on request.

Kad said: "The Tonys desperately need new producers and to go back to the drawing board for how to make a successful ceremony. This was a slog of a night."

From producers to director to writers to host, no one who had anything to do with this debacle should ever be invited back.

Agree. Unlike the Emmys, you could actually see the people being honored.

Seriously, what is the deal with restaging all these numbers so the actors are singing to the camera with their backs to the audience? This is THEATER.

I love Suffs and am rooting for it tonight, but they did themselves no favor with that performance. “The March” would have been a much better choice. And the camerawork tonight is just atrocious.

Went back and timed it during the commercial break. The snippet of “Masquerade” was less than 90 seconds. Seems the producers gave in to the demand for a Stereophonic performance…but not really.

Trying to put myself in the position of someone who hasn’t seen any of these shows, W4E was the first performance that made me think I wanted to see it.

Was the first part of the HK number lip synced? In a few shots the ensemble timing seemed to be off, and the plastic tub drummers didn’t match the track at all.
