The original post is so freaking dumb. Cant believe anyones actually dignified it with a proper response.

MOULIN ROUGE! Broadway Casting Thread

Aaron is the best of the pretty white boy brigade they have going, but good lord, are they just not even trying to find new faces?

Moulin Rouge’s sales have historically lagged over the summer. This is a distinct effort to counteract that. It’s not a cheap show to run with a break even probably north of $1

Broadway Flash said: "Cabaret winning set was definitely for the theatre renovation. The whole idea of this production is that it’s immersive and its cabaret at the Kit Kat klub even tho it’s not really a set"

Thanks for explaining this really complicated aspect.

Nah. This is the start of her own Tonys campaign.

You’d have thought that would have been sorted out before.. ya know.. announcing him being in the show.

Menzel-led REDWOOD to transfer to Broadway this season

Producers really just want to throw their money down a drain don’t they?

Audra McDonald-led GYPSY for 2024-2025 Season?
 May 30 2024, 03:00:08 AM

I cannot wait to see this- but I agree that she certainly isn’t a lock for the Tony. I’m sure she’ll be great, but vocally this role isn’t a natural fit for her.
Nicole S will really be the big story on Broadway ant the end of the year, and I predict she will walk away with that award quite comfortably.

Listener said: "It's a shame she isn't tearing into this a bit more. It's likely her last theatrical hurrah. Why not show people you've grown as an actress?"

Because she hasn’t?

Those speeches are embarrassing, and Matt Gould needs to stop getting hold of a microphone and cursing and ranting at people. 
Maybe the show should just have been better. Maybe he should focus on that and his part in it.

The bigger problem is that it’s a pile of unfunny crap. The fact that this would cost $14 million in NYC should send alarm bells ringing.

Sorry if I’ve missed this somewhere- but is there a cast recording in the works?

Hilty & Simard to lead DEATH BECOMES HER in Chicago spring 2024
 May 1 2024, 02:04:08 AM

This all confirms my initial hunch- why the hell did they cast Michelle Williams? This role needs a powerhouse performer - she ain’t it. Let’s hope they recast her before this comes to the Lunt.

Riedel podcast covering SUNSET BOULEVARD with interviews including AWL, Close, LuPone, Sondheim
 Apr 25 2024, 07:43:47 PM

This was perfectly enjoyable to listen to, but I learnt nothing new and his trailing “You won’t believe what Patti says next” made no sense when she says nothing that biting at all. 

it also repeats the same facts over and over again. Could have done with more Glenn. Though the fact she didn’t reach out to Patti after was disappointing. 

It still beggars belief how badly this was handled by ALW and management. 

CABARET at the Kit Kat Club (2024) Opening Night Critics' Reviews
 Apr 22 2024, 06:12:18 AM

I’m glad that NYC critics have seen through this production. It completely mystified me how they got away with it in London. 

As one review says, Redmaynes Emcee is just a collection of outlandish costumes and nothing more. That sums up the whole production- just a collection of ideas, none of which hang together.


Sunset Blvd is in another league. There’s a vision for the whole piece that is consistent , and will killer performances. Th

This original post is the best thing I’ve ever read on here. It should be framed and on a wall at MOMA. 
A film should be made about it, then a musical starring the (sadly soon to be unemployed) cast of Lempicka

That Beauty revival is dreadful and not worthy of Broadway. Especially at this glorious theater.

TBFL said: "TaffyDavenport said: "The "split screen" of "This Time Next Year" is one of the best pieces of staging I've ever seen, if not the best."

The Jamie Lloyd production heading to NYC has a nice little homage to that staging. When they light the scene, the light only goes up to about the height That the house raised to in the original. Not sure if it was intentional, seems too similar for it not to be.
