Sorry, my bad!

Prices look high-ish for something with no stars & only 90 minutes - I'm comparing to what I paid for Sweeney Todd in the same theater

Sweeney Todd was in the Lunt-Fontanne, not the Longacre

Since this show has recouped and clearly doing well,hopefully the production will give a bonus to the ushers at the Hudson. I heard when Music Man closed the ushers at the Winter Garden received a bonus which was very generous of the Music Man producers."

Anyone who has ever worked in the service industry knows that Brits don't tip.

No, they lined up all the co-producers when it was time for the category and then shuffled the winners onto a platform. Jackson McHenry of Vulturetook this video:
Thank-you for this.  One of the conspiracy theories going around on reddit was that the winners were known before the envelope was opened because people came and asked just the winning producers to come out of the main audience.  This proves is was producers from al

I'll wait & see what shakes out before I look at asking for a refund.  The whole supposed off the cuff statement on the red carpet seemed scripted by his agent as a bargaining ploy.

Article in Hollywood Reporter about how the Jay-Z performance was pre-recorded - which most on here already realized. 

Was the footage shown on screen during big wins of production teams off stage all waving to the camera also pre-recorded?

The Chita tribute felt a little underbaked for me, and Audra being a presenter of that still didn’t sit right for some reason. Is there a connection that im missing?
She showed up where they asked her too.  What's she supposed to do?  Say I want something bigger where I can say "I'm gonna be Rose in Gypsy - buy your tickets now!" 

She's too classy for that

I think Tommy sold tickets with that performance.  For anyone who already knows the music, who may have been holding back, that was an exciting performance.   I haven't been contemplating seeing it, but it was the only performance where I said to myself "That might be worth seeing."

Shows I was on the fence about like Stereop

I had a complete opposite view.  I thought those were both terrible.

Saw the clip of the bows on Twitter posted by account of a Robby Lerman.  Most costumes look super cheap.  Definitely giving we're just putting this on in a rec center vibes.

Someone on Reddit posted a picture of de Shields, and he has a proper suit.  Almost wonder if performers were asked to provide their own clothes?

Another user on Twitter mentioned that

Woah! That dress. 👍

Too bad the show she's going into doesn't offer the same kinds of numbers for her to sing.

How can there be less room for a red carpet at Lincoln Center than at Radio City or any 9f the other theatres used in the past?

Something's screwy

Had a crazy dream last night that the original production of Merrily was completely different from what it was in reality. In my dream the set was was similar to the current revival and with an all star cast:

Franklin - Sidney Poitier

Charley- Woody Allen

Mary - Angela Lansbury

Beth - Suzanne Somers

Joe - Art Carny

Gussie -  Joan Collins

The show was a big hit, running almost 10 years.  Songs from the show

Outsiders seems to be the show that has developed the biggest reaction among young audiences this season.   I read the line for people hoping for rush seats was about 100 people the other day - even though obviously there weren't going to be that many rush seats.  Will that effect voters?  Especially ones who may have been in theatre alongside school groups etc of kids being very emotional?  How could you not be effected & maybe swept along?

They are doing this concert again this Fall, November 14-16, 2024.  Tickets sales start tomorrow for 54 Below "Patrons" with tickets for the general public available starting next Thursday.

That's the week I will be in New York.  There's so many other options though, so not sure if it is something I can make time for.


Menzel-led REDWOOD to transfer to Broadway this season

Nope. That is not the plot. I saw the show twice in March.  It is inspired by the story of Hill, but it is not her story.  In the show Idina's character googles and learns about Hill, and then is like "I'm gonna do the same thing!"  The show has some songs that play to her strengths, and uses projections in a fantastic way, but the book was a mess.
