Metcalf stars in Hunter’s LITTLE BEAR RIDGE ROAD at Steppenwoolf, directed by Mantello
 Jun 21 2024, 08:55:42 AM

Saw this last night and really loved it. But leaving the theater I kind of felt "meh." It's a very small show. But damn did I not love every minute of this. I don't see it going to Broadway as it's too slight, but I can see it coming to Broadway. 

I thought Stock was interesting. Never seen them in a show before. He kind of comes off as drunk? But maybe that's just his style? But interesting performance.

If it is truly immserive and you're walking through the bowels of the Paris Opera house... that could be fun.

Yeah I was curious what this was. They don't list any creatives which is odd.

According to a casting notice they are looking for tumbler and people good with acrobatics. Guess they're adding some stuff to the show?

I would imagine it'll run for a while. The production is the star. Are they even advertising it around the city?

Surprised they wouldn't just extend The Wiz through the holidays.

Actually, I don’t think it’s ever been used for anything other than the Met’s season, and then the American Ballet Theatre does a month of performances between mid June to mid July. Sure it would be bigger but sorta off brand for the Tony’s. Plus, I don’t even think

(Yes I know Warren would be fantastic, and I know Chopra can't sing this role but she is a phenomenal actress and it would have been quite an event)

Why would anyone want to pay $ to watch someone struggle through a score? I don’t think it would be an event but a blunder.

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 you need to understand what this performance was about. I

I don't even remember the water?
