Jennifer Lopez to Star in KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN Film  Mar 20 2024, 01:46:56 PM

Started filming today according to Lopez’s Instagram. 
 

EDIT: They’ve started production, not filming. 


Blankenbuehler-led KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN in the works?  Mar 20 2024, 01:45:37 PM

The movie started filming today so hopefully the revival will follow. 


Little Shop...Who Leads? Anyone know?  Feb 28 2024, 09:46:20 AM

Jinx just started following both Darren and Corbin on insta so it seems like it’s definitely her.  


Shrek tour  Feb 27 2024, 07:30:50 PM

CATSNYrevival said: "I’m not sure what the current licensed version is. The free read from MTI has the Shrek and Fiona prologue, the trans slur, Ballad of Farquaad and the short jokes. I assume it hasn’t been updated yet."

I’m in Shrek right now and all those things are still in it.

In a less competitive year she might've won."

I completely agree! Margot was good but Fantasia wa


Sam Mendes will direct 4 films about The Beatles (one from each member's POV) to be theatrically released by Sony in 2027  Feb 20 2024, 01:40:24 PM

Sounds like a really interesting way of doing it, I suppose. 
 

I wish Hidden Figures had been done this way. I always felt like all three of those women deserved their own biopics. 


Who will be the next Broadway Madame Rose?  Feb 17 2024, 04:41:12 PM

Not applicable to Broadway audiences, but I hope Sheridan Smith plays Rose at one point on UK shores.

Thank you for posting this still! This was one of those "blink and you'll miss it" moments in the teaser.

In the still, Galinda is flanked by two characters from Maguire’s book that do not appear in the stage musical. To Galinda’s left is the character Phannee (played by Bowen Yang) and to her right is ShenShen (played by Bronwyn James). In the book, Phannee and ShenShen are both females. They’re kind of like Glinda’s rich “mean girl” friends, especially in regards to how they view Elphaba.

As seen in the still, it seems the students of Shiz have options regarding whether/not to conform to gender-specific clothing. Above the waist, all are wearing a blazer, but below the waist, some are in trousers, some in knee-length shorts, some in skirts, and some in both skirt and shorts. Their choices for what to wear below the waist do not seem to be restricted to what might be considered traditional gender conformity. In the still, Phannee is wearing a skirt, but it’s not visible whether/not the character is also wearing shorts.

Also in the still, Phannee is obviously showing signs of disapproval. Yang is scowling. His disapproval is accentuated by wearing his glasses lower down on his nose. He's literally looking down his nose at Elphaba at first sighting.

So, here’s what I’m wondering: Why was the character from Maguire’s book changed to imply a stereotype of a gay male?
"

ShenShen and Pfannee are in the stage show. There’s male Shiz students wearing skirts in the stage show also. 


Smash The Musical:  Feb 15 2024, 12:48:22 PM

Is anyone at the read through tonight? Very keen to hear reports!

They don't have the rights to the 1939 film. Those rights are owned by Warner Bros (who acquired them from MGM at some point). This is, officially speaking, basedonlyon the public domain Baum books.

Sorry, I should have made my point more clear. I’m more surprised they didn’t pay for the usage of the Ruby Slippers. Given that the aesthetics of Wicked borrows heavily from the 1939 movie, which this film seems to do even more.

The Search for Dolly Parton  Jan 28 2024, 08:43:16 PM

GiantsInTheSky2 said: "They already did a “Search For Dolly” contest for the West End production of 9 To 5. This would actually be more interesting a show, I would think."

Did they? I have absolutely no recollection of that. Especially since they went and cast a seasoned West End performer in the role. 


Actors With Unhealthy Singing Technique?  Jan 22 2024, 02:21:15 PM

Lea Salonga damaged her voice during the original West End run of Miss Saigon and had to be taught how to sing from various parts of her body in order to maintain a healthy instrument. 


Audra McDonald-led GYPSY for 2024-2025 Season?  Jan 4 2024, 01:42:39 PM

Alex Kulak2 said: "I wonder if the discourse about the name will start again. If they're going to change it, rolling it out with a new production would help smooth things over with the die-hard originalists."

Imagine they rebranded it GYPSY ROSE and you had bus loads of Gen Z turning up expecting a musical about Gypsy Rose Blanchard.

This will likely go into the pile of Ryan Murphy projects that are announced featuring the flavour of the week but will never materialise.
