Dream Two Show Day  Apr 17 2024, 10:09:58 PM

I love two show days!! Back in 2009 I had two of the best two show days in the same week.

On Wednesday afternoon we saw the 2009 revival of HAIR, and then that evening we saw Billy Elliott. 

Then on Saturday we saw the matinee of West Side Story, and then that evening we saw Next To Normal.

 


Hilty & Simard to lead DEATH BECOMES HER in Chicago spring 2024  Mar 5 2024, 04:53:24 PM

PipingHotPiccolo said: "i have no idea if Michelle Williams can act in or out of a paper bag, but it seems silly to base that opinion on how she handled a beast of a role like Aida 25 years ago. A smaller, lighter part might be perfect for her, and we know she can sing it. And she's somewhat of a Name. Seems like a coup for this production."

Never saw her in Aida, but I did see her in The Color Purple on tour and she was a perfectly good Shug Avery.

Someone on Reddit stated Storm Lever and the silhouette looks very close.

Storm Lever has a really cool voice but she just started in SIX two months ago, and would not sell any tickets.

I mean, crazier things have happened. I would LOVE to see her play Audrey.


Universal's WICKED Film - News & Discussion Thread  Feb 20 2024, 07:26:25 PM

This is such a weird thing to complain about. Cynthia sounds great in that clip, and judging her entire vocal performance on a 4 second riff is ridiculous. I can't wait for more footage to come out so people can find something else to hyper focus on.

MEAN GIRLS Movie Musical - News & Discussion Thread  Jan 12 2024, 03:09:37 PM

I haven't watched the film yet so I can't give an honest opinion yet, but wow that soundtrack is bleak!

What did they do to "stupid with love"? Its almost like they said "we're sorry this is a musical, but we made the songs sound nothing like a broadway show so maybe you'll like it more!". I guess now we know what Billie Eilish or Lana Del Rey would sound like as Cady.

Wow, I haven't listened to too much from this show, but that song is Gorgeous! Beautiful video too, Eden sounds amazing. I just got real excited for this one.

theatregoer3 said: "I saw the original production and then the concert version with Glenn. I thought the original production was spectacular. Truly incredible. The concert was a big letdown but the biggest issue I had with it was that the score was constructed around the original set. These big musical swells and long pauses in the signing are meant to accommodate grand set changes and big scenic reveals. When you have a minimalist version using the original score it's full of de

n2nbaby said: "I can’t wait for this to close and I hope we never get another revival ever again. The amount of gross that is all over this thread, the Beanie threads and just all of the drama. Absolutely ridiculous. All of that for a poorly written show to boot! See ya later, Funny Girl!"

Thank you!! I said something similar a few pages back and got roasted.

Cause a lot of people get mad when people start a new thread about a conversation that's already happened.

alovingfan said: "I don't know how these things work.. so forgive my ignorance. But it is interesting to me that just as the show is about to close there are so many actors in it taking scheduled vacations. Is it on purpose to give swings and understudies a chance to go on one more time? That is very sweet if it is. Weird that Tovah would be off now when the show is about to close.. and by the last I saw of her social media.. she is just in the city taking in other shows.&qu


Has "actor stays onstage in character during intermission" become more of a thing recently, or is this just a coincidence?  Aug 11 2023, 05:49:34 PM

Yessica Haircut said: "I can't comment as to how often this has happened or if this is some kind of new trend in the theatre. But, as with any aspect of a production, it's all about what the director is trying to say, how that adds to their vision, and how it compliments the overall experience.

WithThe Doctor, I feel Robert Icke was trying to convey how isolated and stagnant the doctor's life had become after her big decision at the end of the first ac

Boq101 said: "Annelise Van Der Pol I think would be hilarious in any of the wives, and she's already someone who has been touring."

She'd be great as Sarah! If the role wasn't already cast I'd say she'd be perfect as Bobbie too.


Lea Michele as Fanny - Funny Girl  Aug 8 2023, 02:54:03 PM

Well Dang! Color me surprised!

Setting aside my personal feeling about this show and Ms Michele, this is Fantastic news!! Big shows like this recoup less and less often these days, so any show that fully recoups in this day and age deserves to be celebrated.

Congrats FG!


Creative ways to utilize Circle in the Square?  Aug 5 2023, 07:36:54 PM

Thank you! I LOVE theatre in the round and I wish there were more "non-proscenium" theatres on broadway. Sacramento Music Circus solely produces productions in the round, and I have seen some incredible work done there. 

I guess one criticism is that any subsequent touring productions need to be completely re-designed. the recent OOTI an
