KIMBERLY AKIMBO Original Broadway Cast Recording Thread

this recording f%#ing destroying me. i only knew the basic premise of the setup so i knew of course it might get a bit misty. was not prepared for the full on sobbing when Kim sings that song towards the end. of course listening one week after my grandmother was on the hospital for pneumonia for 5 days made this hit even harder for me. a gorgeous recording.

Victoria Clark Attendance

given the fact that many broadway performers are filled in by understudies or standbys every week is is it really offensive to ask if the star of a show is consistently there? does it have to be a diatribe against victoria clark?

if this is a success would it be Jason Robert Brown's first hit ever? i know he hasn't had much financial success with his shows but wasn't sure if he's technically had one that made money

What is an Original Musical?
 Dec 12 2022, 01:57:40 PM

CATSNYrevival said: "Mamma Mia, for example, is an original story that didn’t really exist in a prior form of entertainment that uses pre-existing music. It was eligible for best musical as a new musical but it’s up to the individual to decide if it’s an original musical. There are no concrete rules."

except for how Mamma Mia! is a complete rip-off of Buona Sera, Mrs. Campbell which was also the basis of Carmelina.

if those other stars can’t sing the score they should be happy that their mediocre vocals aren’t preserved for all time. idk why they would consider it a mistake.

Unfinished Sondheim Material
 Oct 16 2022, 03:14:16 AM

“Second, while some time has passed now when Sondheim just died I imagine there are a number of commercial and personal affairs that needed to be worked through and I doubt the priority of the estate and associated parties was to try and mount Square One. In addition it probably would seem a bit opportunistic and tasteless for people to circle the estate about Square One (assuming there are interested producers). So conversations about this might have only just started recently (if

Come Tony Awards time next spring, the committee is going to have an issue. Lea Michele’s show-stopping lead performance in director Michael Mayer’s revival of “Funny Girl” will be a formidable competitor for best lead performance by an actress in a musical. But since she’s technically (and famously) a replacement for Beanie Feldstein in that sa

Jordan Catalano said: "Someone correct me if I’m wrong (and I very well could be) but I swear I was told that Beanie’s contract had something in it about a cast recording being hers (should they record it), so wouldn’t that mean they’re not able to do it with anyone else for this production?"

wow if they did that after hearing her sing the producers are even dumber than previously displayed

i love sutton but the good sis was not right for these songs. probably one of the more shrill performances on a cast recording in recent memory. why give such gorgeous soprano songs to someone who can’t sing them how they were written?

they are morons if they don’t record it. regardless of her recording 5 of the songs on Glee her performance of the songs is much more nuanced from the intervening decade it would be worth it to have it on record (not mentioning the shame it would be to have the first ever revival of the show unrecorded). seems like an easy win to me - plus Vanessa Williams and Br

it’s the original version of the song that i believe was replaced out of town by the shorter ballad-only version
