3 female musical theatre songs!

Changing Keys for Performers is So Cool
 Jun 29 2024, 10:09:45 PM

Your point about switching harmonies in Merrily reminded me that in many audition notices that I've seen for Heathers, it is noted that the 3 Heathers can switch vocal lines as needed to suit the actresses.

Thanks for your insight, Jordan and FloridaBoy. It seems just as gross as I thought it was when I first read about it. I'll be happy to miss this one.

Slave Play. Not a movie. A play.

Broadway Flash said: "No way. slave play is muchfunnier than strange loop. There was a certain pg13 quality to strange loop which I hated. And I thought slave play was much more serious and important too. STRANGE LOOP is the one that felt kiddie"

I think Slave Play is very good, but this is a ridiculous thing to say.

Spring awakening is cooked

This is a weird and bad take. If you watch Spring Awakening and don't see how it's even more relevant today than it was when it premiered, you've missed the point of the entire show.

I also don't know any parents who are cool with their 14 year olds running around and having sex.

Thanks Ermengarde - didn't realize that the score rule hadn't been in place that long. I agree with you, that is insanely dumb.

People are gonna come for me over this, and you're all entitled to feel how you feel, but I just don't see Illinoise as a musical at all and I don't agree with it being nominated for Best Musical. It's a ballet that happens to have live singers. It's an absolutely beautiful show, and their performance has 10000% been the best of the night so far, and I think it's something that everyone should see. But calling it a musical is a huge stretch.

Thrilled for Outsiders. SO deserved on all fronts and I'm looking forward to more wins for them this evening.

Water For Elephants actively made me want to see the show less, and I already wasn't that interested.

Merrily has had the most entertaining performance so far.

I echo the thoughts re: the opening number and Ariana. Yaaawn.

I didn't realize that Sarah Paulson would be such a draw. I'm happy to see it happen though.

I saw a semi-professional production of this play a few years ago and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to hearing reports from this production.

I'm curious why Ohio opened now instead of waiting until spring. Seems like that would have been a more lucrative decision.

I'd love to be proven wrong if the rumor is true, but I cannot picture Tveit as Sweeney. Not at all.

Favorite theatre related podcasts?

They don't record new episodes anymore (and one of the hosts has passed away), but I always enjoyed Three On The Aisle and often go back and listen to their backlog of episodes.

Would anyone who saw Willa Bost as Idella this weekend care to share their thoughts on her performance?

I’m this show’s biggest fan, but even I think this is a bold move and VERY wishful thinking.

I'm happy for them, but this is a surprising thing to do based on their grosses so far. I hope they don't end up having to backtrack and close earlier than the extension date.
