Nicole Scherzinger writing musical 'Loosely based on her Life'
 Jun 30 2024, 05:11:29 PM

What's so interesting about her life that warrants a musical based on it? 

Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 6/23/24
 Jun 26 2024, 12:35:43 PM

The Notebook's producers had a company meeting early last week to assure the company the show isn't closing (which, in my experience, usually means the numbers aren't great and closing is on the horizon). They are planning an ad blitz. Attendance this week looks pretty good, but that doesn't necessarily mean more money. Take Me Out's limited run was basically saved by an ad campaign, though they had two celebrities with enough appeal to get them to the fi

Springtime said: "Lindsay was out for the Wednesday evening show, but filming expected is expected to continue Thursday and Friday. Likely to be out for at least one of the Saturday shows."

That had to be costly.

2024 Tony Awards

Alicia Keyes STOLE the song from Maleah. Maleah WON THE TONY. And the composer stepped in and took her best number. So we never got to hear the young lady who WON the award because the composer decided it was best she sing it. That was AWFUL. That was a disgrace imho.

I think there should be a rule that only members of the cast can appear in any musical perfo

Has front of house ever been thanked so much at the Tonys. It's very refreshing.

DeBose was horrible.

Favorite lines of dialogue written to excuse or make sense of a lyric?

Not sure if it's in the stage version, but I watched and immediately thought of this post."

No, it's not on the stage version. In the stage version, Link creates a MacGyver-esque blow torch using hairspray and a lighter to free Tracy.

Glenn Close gives a 'Sunset Boulevard' movie update

She was committed to an institution, where she insisted they were making a musical movie version of the story. 

Only 3 have swept all the Theatre Awards
 May 2 2024, 03:18:20 PM

Wick3 said: "FLarnhill said: "Zeppie2022 said: "I was wondering how Nathan Lane did not win all awards in 2001 for "The Producers". I did not know until I looked that the "Theater World" award is for performers making their NYC stage debut. I now understand why only three people have swept all these awards."

What's impressive is that these people have swept in their debut.

I agree but remember back then Actor's Equity rarely gaveforeign actors the opportunity to perform in NYC. They usually had to do an exchange or have a compelling reason to allow the foreign actor to perform on Broadway. In these cases, all 3 foreign actors were already well-established actors when they made their Broadway debut.

I remember back in late 1990s when Hugh Jackman was in the Oklahama! revival in West End, producers wanted to bring him to Broadway but Equity denied the request. Production eventually did go to NYC and starred Patrick Wilson.

That's not exactly correct. Cameron Macintosh and Trevor Nunn wanted to bring over the entire London cast,  claiming to be too busy to rehearse a new cast.

They are really behind schedule.

Seeing a show when you're not feeling great

Medicate within an inch of your life or stay home!

Some people have chronic coughs, and sniffing can also be attributed to allergies. Get a grip. 1

Show That Have Sat Down

Outside the Loop, there were long-running productions of Pump Boys and Dinettes at the Apollo, Forever Plaid at Wisdom Bridge, and Coed Prison Sl*ts at the Annoyance Theatre.

Forgot about Joseph! (despite the incessant 90s ads! haha) Are the others sit-downs or just

Why don’t actors share roles on Broadway?

dramamama611 said: "It's also a problem if putting " part time " work out there. Most actors can't afford a part time salary, and one that has no benefits."

Considering they only work part time, they already get a full-time salary. Name other, more deserving professions, for which this is true.

It's been up for a few weeks now.

Donny Osmond returning to JOSEPH
 Feb 21 2024, 05:09:25 PM

I don't really get the criticism. He played Joseph 2000 times over a five-year period in one production nearly 30 years ago. It's not like he's spent his life doing this one role/show. And he's not coming back into the lead role. How many times do people on this board dreamcast actors who originate one role in a show return to that show in another role?

She didn't perform at all last week. 

What Next For The Majestic?

Though it's actually behind schedule, the Majestic is "near completion" according to info (and a few pics) sent to Shubert employees. They also confirmed a digital marquee is being installed.

Universal's WICKED Film - News & Discussion Thread

BrodyFosse123 said: "It’s hilarious how a 1 minute montage teaser trailer of a 4 hour plus 2-part film is being dissected. Entire performances are beinganalyzed based on 2-3 second audio and video clips. My favorite is the comment that Michelle Yeoh’s acting is fantastic when the few 1 second footage we see she’s basically emulating an expression (her audio is used as a voiceover). I’m surprised no one has said how insane Bowen Yang looks in the trailer and how hisglance at Glinda is layered with so much information and he’s definitely winning every award for his few minutes in the film.cheeky"

You mean the trailer you said wasn't going to show any film footage?

You'll have a full view. The stage is pretty wide, so you don't miss anything. 

CONFIRMED: CABARET at the August Wilson Theatre, Spring 2024

I received a mailer the other day with a discount code. Valid though March 2025! I said they priced the show too high. Now that they've run out of suckers willing to the pay those obscene prices, they are reducing and discounting.

Huh? Are you talking about Part II? Because DG ends Part I - it's literally the reason they cited for breaking the movie into two parts.


That is exactly what I mean. Part II is not going to have Defying Gra
