Pineapple Room

Thanks so much for prompt reply!  I'll only be in NYC this time for 2 days so I don't want to waste 75 minutes being hawked drinks!

I have front row mezzanine tickets to an early June evening performance of "Cabaret.".  I have no interest in the 75 minute early arrival, purchasing the Pineapple Room upgrade at $95, or anything other than seeing the show.  

Will I be able to arrive 15 minutes before the 8pm start of the show and expect to get seated before it begins?

From the posts in this thread, sounds like I should be able to skip the pre-show stuff, but, just wanted to know if anyone did skip it and g

Beanie Feldstein Departing FUNNY GIRL on July 31 (Two Months Earlier Than Originally Announced)
 Jul 13 2022, 01:13:08 PM

I agree that Michele is a step in the wrong casting direction.  I doubt the show will last after the Glee crowd has seen it.  Sure, she can sing better than Beanie, but, she's not a great singer.  Imitating Streisand won't cut it.  This anemic production needed a real talent like Jesse Mueller to make it click with critics and long- standing theater goers.

HRC was wearing her mask the other night at POTUS. 😀

Glad to hear.  The news about new variant, esp in NYC these days, is not good.

Covid Strikes Company Again?

Matt Doyle has posted on his IG today that stage-dooring has not returned and Covid has struck Company again.  Cast or crew?

I will miss this company doing 'Company', but I will miss my Bobby, Bubbi, Bobby, Bubbi. Bobby Conte most of all...


Me too.  


Plaza Suite-3rd highest gross of a play-revival

Congrats to SJP and Matthew Broderick!  I’ve never been too keen on Neil Simon’s work, but, I thoroughly enjoyed how hard both of these stars worked to give this play some zest (and lots of laugh). They were both great.  Hope to see them team up again.  

LEA MICHELE to do 6 nights a week in FUNNY GIRL while Benko does 2

Lea Michele could not get me to sit through Funny Girl again, but, a true Broadway star like Jesse Mueller might have.  

PETITION: The 2022 Broadway Revival Cast of COMPANY Should Record & Release Its Own Cast Album!

Such bitchiness abounds here; it’s a horrible character defect of some members of my tribe.  

COVID performance cancellation

Doesn’t it seem strange that with so many casts still getting Covid, Broadway opts to make masks optional 7/1?

So sad to hear it’s closing so soon after the Tony sweep, but, happy to hear it will tour in 2023-24.  I saw it in May and was hoping to make another trip home to see it again.

Yes, Matt posted on his IG that he will be back for 6/22 matinee.

Beautiful the Carole King Musical —Status of Film
 Jun 19 2022, 07:39:23 PM

I love Kristen Vigard’s vocals and the song “A Boat on the Sea” on the “Grace” soundtrack.  

Are you guys thinking that since “Grace of My Heart”  very loosely covered Carole’s career, there’s no appetite for a film version of the Broadway musical even though the 3rd national tour of “Beautiful” is still a huge hit?

When “Respect” kind of tanked at the box office, my hopes to see &ldq

I know Tom Hanks snagged the film rights (or the option) to set this up at his Playtone Productions.  Does anyone have any updates?  

Beanie’s Last Performance 9/25
 Jun 15 2022, 06:05:32 PM

Beanie just used her IG to announce that she resumes performances on 6/16, but, also that her last performance in Funny Girl will be 9/25.  This will make just barely a 6 month run. 

Will the show continue? If so, who will replace her?  Since producers have not been hyping Julie’s,performances, doubt it will be her. 

The 75th Annual TONY Awards!

ACL2006 said: "I still have ZERO desire to see SIX."

I originally did intend to see Six when it toured, but, after seeing that performance, I’ll skip it.  Looks like a retro Labelle performance from the ‘70s; those costumes are so stupid and so not edgy.

Paul Ford’s book (Working with Sondheim)

Several mean-spirited comments on this thread.

Alcoholism is a disease which hits the LGBTQIA+ community very hard.  Kindness and compassion never go out of style, especially not in Pride month.

I just bought the Kindle version of the book.
