Funny Girl Tour cast changes.
 Jul 3 2024, 08:42:28 AM

Not sure why my previous post has a 12/31/99 date!

Funny Girl Tour cast changes.
 Dec 31 1899, 07:58:09 PM

I saw the tour last night in DC.  Upon entering the Opera House I was happy to see that no understudies were listed.  Got to my seat and there was a printout of the cast appearing that night.  Unfortunately, Katerina McCrimmon was out.  I was not happy about that as I specifically went to see her.  I would have been pleased if Hannah Shankman was on in her place (did not happen).  Got second understudy Leah Platt.  What dismays me is there was no notificatio

HAMILTON Principal Cast Replacements
 Jul 2 2024, 11:54:01 AM

Happy for another new cast member.  I saw the show in February when Bryson Bruce was on as Hamilton.  He was quite good. That was also the performance when the Eliza standby appeared in Act 2.  Jen Sese was excellent.  I love Tamar Greene's, George Washington.

I've seen Hamilton numerous times (Broadway and various tours), but this was the first time I was bored. I used to enjoy the uniqueness of the ensemble, but no one stood out (not in the pulling focus k

Titanic at City Center

I'm glad I got to see this last Friday.  If I lived closer to the city, I would definitely see it again.

Borle, Sykes, and Rodriguez will lead Kennedy Center's BYE BYE BIRDIE
 Jun 14 2024, 11:22:40 AM

Having seen this twice, the video clips are not a good representation of the show I saw. I wonder if this was from an invited dress. I thought it was a fun and enjoyable production, though I don't see it transferring.

Does Katerina do all 8 performances, or does she have a scheduled evening off?  I'd like to see her when the tour arrives in DC soon.

Borle, Sykes, and Rodriguez will lead Kennedy Center's BYE BYE BIRDIE
 Jun 10 2024, 04:10:28 PM

I saw this Saturday night, and the production was absolutely delightful.  I have never seen a production of this show, and don't have any recollection of having seen the 1995 televised version with Vanessa Williams and Jason Alexander.

I don't think there were any weak links in the cast.  Krysta Rodriguez was wonderful as Rosie. Caroline Aaron (Mrs. Mae Peterson) and Richard Kind (Harry MacAfee) were absolutely perfect. I enjoyed Ashlyn Maddox as Kim MacAfee

Chicago The Musical Appreciation Thread

I thought Rebecca Johnson-Smith was going into the show after Robyn left, though I never saw an official announcement.

New Hadestown Casting
 May 30 2024, 09:09:53 AM

I'm quite surprised by how short Jon Jon and Isa's run was, especially since she just made her Broadway debut.  I won't get an opportunity to see them before they leave.

The 77th Annual Tony Award Nominations for 2024
 Apr 30 2024, 10:49:12 AM

Titanic also didn't have any acting nominees which was kind of surprising considering the strength of the cast.  There were only 4 nominees in each category in 1997 (I just checked).

(Insert Name or Show) Was Robbed!
 Apr 30 2024, 09:39:18 AM

I'm kind of surprised none of the actresses were nominated for Suffs. (I stand corrected as I didn't see Nikki James name when I first read through the list)

I was also expecting to see Lorin Latarro's name.

7 nominees in the best featured actress in a musical is unnecessary.

farewell Kimmy!
 Apr 28 2024, 06:26:43 PM

I absolutely adored this show and saw this production for the last time Friday evening. I was shocked by how many empty seats there were in the mezzanine. 

Does anyone know if Michael Iskander departed the show early? He wasn't in Friday night, and he wasn't there today. He was still listed in the Playbill. 

NINE & BYE BYE BIRDIE at Kennedy Center - Cast?
 Apr 18 2024, 02:26:03 PM

Ever since the Kiss of the Spider Woman debacle, I kind of don't trust them.

Phantom Closing?
 Apr 17 2024, 10:47:57 AM

It's jarring not to see the Phantom marquee since it was a mainstay when it first went up in late 1987. I will always associate this show with my move to NYC.

NINE & BYE BYE BIRDIE at Kennedy Center - Cast?
 Apr 17 2024, 10:45:15 AM

I live in DC and already purchased my Bye Bye Birdie tickets, but had no idea that they were doing Nine. Where have I been?!

THE WIZ Previews

Nothing about this production shown during the segment on CBS Sunday Morning made me want to see this.

COMPANY Revival On Tour - News & Discussion Thread
 Mar 27 2024, 10:30:27 AM

I saw this production this production last week and enjoyed it a lot.  My only other exposure to Company was a touring production in the late 90s.  I actually preferred this production.

I had a few quibbles though.  The refrigerator door in the apartment set for Not Getting Married Today, looked quite beat up.  It was a bit distracting.

I also felt that Ladies Who Lunch brought the show to a screeching halt.  For some reason it didn't work for me.&nb

Why did Shuffle Along fall off the face of the Earth?
 Mar 5 2024, 08:40:21 AM

I absolutely loved this show, and saw it 4 times over the course of its brief run.  By the time I saw it in late previews the show seemed pretty frozen.  I wish I had seen it in early previews just to see how much the show changed.  I can't believe Audra wasn't nominated for a Tony for her role.  I also saw Darlesia Cearcy twice as Lottie Gee twice.  She was wonderful.  I'm disappointed that a cast recording was never made.

Kimberly Akimbo -- Victoria Clark's Schedule
 Feb 6 2024, 12:06:43 PM

I saw it Saturday afternoon and she was out.  Not sure if her days off are floating as nothing is listed on the show's site or on Telecharge.  I wasn't happy when I found out she was performing that day, but Colleen Fitzpatrick was wonderful.  I'd still like to go back to see Victoria Clark before it closes.

Non Equity Tours
 Feb 1 2024, 03:30:22 PM

I was tempted to see the non-equity tour of Annie that recently passed through DC, but decided against it.  The reviews I had seen online mentioned that the set looked cheap, which I'm not surprised, since this tour does a lot of one-nighter's.  I got to see the original production with the original cast just before Andrea McArdle left, and all of the productions of this show I have seen since then have paled in comparison. The tour was definitely not at a
