What about Ed Platt, the actor who played the "Chief" on the old Don Adams sit-com Get Smart? Any relation to any of these Platts?

What about the 50's group The Platters? Any relation?

What was your seat number? I bet I sat you. "

Agree with you jbm2.  Planning to catch that when I am in L.A. myself in November.  It's already up on Goldstar. Will also catch Guards at the Taj at Geffen, Awake and Sing! at the Odyssey and Kansas City Choir Boy with Courtney Love at the Kirk Douglas.  May also try to

There is always Blue Man Group that has a 5pm Saturday show. Also Colin Quinn is bringing back his 1 man show New York Story in late October and he will have 5 pm shows both Saturday and Sunday. If you are familiar with him and his other 1 man shows, you'd probably enjoy this one. I'm not familiar with any others that have performances at that time but you can check the listings on Playbill.  It's by show but it probably wouldn't take more than 10-15 minutes to go thru th

Again, I'm not assuming anything. I've stated what you said and why it was full of factual errors. You simply won't acknowledge you had no idea what you were talking about.


My experience with you is that you have an agenda and will make things up to support it hoping no one calls you on it. When they do, you eithe

@Islanderfan, by giving a lengthy explanation about all the reasons they might not have been able to press charges when this was clearly a civil case, I didn't say you were clueless, your responses portrayed you as not really understanding what action was actually being taken. In one concise, detailed and well written response, Loliveve gave a perfectly understandable explanation as to why they would have waited. Your explanations let's just say, were not as compel

@Islanderfan If they were going to pursue other avenues first, they most likely would have filed a complaint with the Taxi and Limousine Commission but the article at the end made it sound like the TLC had never received a complaint and was waiting to be served. But whatever, we'll see how it ultimately turns out. Loliveve's explanation at least makes sense.

I don't think After Eight really cares whether they recoup. It was just a means for him to bash a wonderful, original and clever show. If they recoup, he will no doubt find some other idiotic, negative thing to say about them to replace his being able to say it was a flop.

He told me that there is a three to five year (depending upon the nature of the incident in question) statute of limitations that one may press charges. He also informed me that it can be harder to press charges against some parties than others.

I know that filing charges and going to court and all that move at a snails pace. It could very well be that they got the ball rolling soon after the situation happened, but they weren't officially considered filed until recently. 



I don't think that's it. It'

You guys ever hear of Taylor Swift? Katy Perry? The whole article is a spoof.


People with Money magazine doesn't exist.

Performers that were ill on cast recordings.

It could just be the way they mixed the sound for each version.  But he is by design supposed to sound at least a little shrill. He is at his breaking point frustrated by congress' inactivity and that's reflected in his tone.


Edit: He may have had a cold. I've never heard that but I have no idea. But if he did, it didn't affect his singing as far as I could tell.

I've never heard the rumor about William Daniels being sick. 1776 is one of my favorite shows and I've listened to the OBCR a hundred times over the years. He sounded in perfect voice to me. Perhaps you're confusing him with Howard Da Silva who played Benjamin Franklin. Da Silva suffered a heart attack during previews and was replaced on the OBCR as well as on stage until his return, by his understudy, Rex Everhart.

Old Hats played at A.C.T. in San Francisco but as a general rule, the shows not transferring is almost always true. Wonder if that's because of the way the shows are set up or because their shows can, at least in my experience vary greatly in quality and their shows tend to be more suited to smaller houses. Once they've played one 250 seat theatre in New York, there really isn't usually a compelling need to play another.

Been checking to see if the theater has seen this thread, realized the error of their ways and recast. Unfortunately, looks like they're going ahead as planned. Well Bob, you fought the good fight. Bummer.

Many people really liking the show because it's clever and funny and very entertaining and it winning the Tony does not mean it's overhyped if you don't share their opinion.

Exactly how would a show you haven't seen "look" overhyped to you? I' m really curious.

Dude, we know. This is the 3rd thread you've started on this in the last week. There's plenty of opportunity to pimp your code by bumping the other two. We don't need another TodayTix circus with 5 threads running simultaneously.

It seems to me if people care enough to schlep all the way down to the theater and line up early in the morning they would deserve front row over people sitting on their duffs clicking a couple computer buttons. But, maybe that's just me. LOL!


Please, it's not about caring more. If they wanted to show how much they care about the show, they'd buy a full price ticket.They decide to "schlep" down there cause they think they&#3

@jemjeb2 I wasn't the one who said she was actually 16 at the time. That was a quote from someone else. Please try harder to keep up.
