What is the worst production you have ever seen on Broadway? What is the worst show?
 May 18 2024, 05:17:59 PM

BentleyB said: "“But “Burn This” I couldn’t run out of the Hudson fast enough along with several other audience members at intermission. I fell asleep at least 3 times in act 1."

I saw Burn This the summer day there was a blackout that closed most shows but not this one! Oh, lucky me! I refuse to watch Adam Driver in anything since this travesty. I stayed for Act 2 because I have had a crush on David Furr since I spotted him

SWEPT AWAY transferring to Broadway this fall
 May 18 2024, 04:48:41 PM

I saw this in DC and there is much room for improvement concerning the book. I question the choice to produce this commercially as the show is essentially a four-hander that I can't see succeeding outside of the intimacy of a smaller house like the Booth or Circle in the Square. Trigger warnings, ahoy! This is a very emotionally intense and gruesome piece if one is not aware of its nautical inspiration. The show will receive the highest accolades concerning its le

Love to see it. Release that Dead Outlaw album sooner than later, please.


2024 Tony Predictions
 Apr 28 2024, 01:23:06 PM

If I can chose only one nomination, it would be Imperioli in An Enemy of the People. If I can expand that to three, I would like to see Paul Alexander Nolan finally earn a nom and for Reg Rogers to be included in the Merrily wave.

Love all these Dead Outlaw noms. Now where's my cast album? 

THE GREAT GATSBY Broadway Previews
 Apr 18 2024, 11:18:51 AM

MrsSallyAdams said: "Does the show allow for a GBQ reading of Nick? The films all cut Nick's ambiguous hook up with Mr. McKee but some lean into the idea that he's more infatuated with Gatsby than with Jordan Baker."

I remember reading Gatsby in either 7th or 8th grade and naturally assuming that Nick was gay and Jordan was his ... well, I don't think the term that comes to mind is acceptable anymore. Disappointing that no major adaptat

Favorite spots for Pre-Broadway Drinks/Dinner
 Apr 11 2024, 06:25:40 PM

Bodega on 47th and 9th. The couple behind the much missed VYNL opened this spot in December and it has a nice mix of breakfast all day, burgers, some old favorites, and specialty drinks at reasonable prices.

All So Ozmopolitan said: "Merrily We Roll Along *without Daniel Radcliffe* is up on TDF for Wednesday, April 3rd at 1:00pm. Wow, never thoughtI'd be saying that..."

The only way I can budget this show is to see it without Groff or Radcliffe and I chose Radcliffe. Seeing this Tuesday night via TodayTix for $129 and the seat is great, but I'll be kicking myself for not waiting to see if this popped up on TDF!


Hedwig Fan Casting
 Mar 14 2024, 09:34:05 PM

I have dreamed of Norbert Leo Butz as Hedwig for a very, very long time but I believe it is just not meant to be. I guess this is my Bernie as Mrs. Lovett moment.

Sent you a PM, thanks!

I won the lotto for tomorrow evening's performance but can't use one of the tickets. The seat is in row A section 200s even. PM me if interested.

The moment we've all been waiting for: The Heart of Rock and Roll is up for what looks to be every preview performance.

Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 3/3/24

Blindbutlerdeafmaid said: "They're certainly not putting out the amount of social content they were from London, that's for sure."

Seriously, it feels like every time I look at Facebook the BTTF story is about new US national tour dates. That's all very well and good, but that ain't going to get people to see it at the Winter Garden. How this show distinguishes itself during TONY season will be interesting because Best Musical is more than li

New Musical, DEAD OUTLAW, from Penna/Yazbek/Moses
 Mar 3 2024, 06:08:24 PM

I saw Dead Outlaw this weekend and I'm going to echo the previous praise in this thread. My humor normally trends dark and this show definitely played to those sensibilities while also becoming quite moving. Thank heavens this is being recorded by Audible because this score is one rollicking song after another that I need to hear again. Great ensemble work here with each member getting their time to shine. This is a pretty short run at the Minetta Lane, don't miss out.

THE WHO’S TOMMY to open at the Nederlander in March 2024
 Feb 24 2024, 02:26:05 PM

Tommy sings a reprise of Pinball Wizard in Act 2. Color me unimpressed by the promos but aside from the 15th anniversary concert I have never seen Tommy on stage so I'll check the revival out at some point. 

Sam Mendes will direct 4 films about The Beatles (one from each member's POV) to be theatrically released by Sony in 2027
 Feb 20 2024, 03:00:40 PM

As someone who took a trek to Liverpool this past spring (the National Trust tour of McCartney's family home and Lennon's Aunt Mimi's posh digs cannot be recommended enough) I'm strangely unenthused about this but open to surprises.

BACK TO THE FUTURE will transfer to Broadway in 2023

Jordan Catalano said: "Saw this again the other day after not having seen it on Broadway since previews. I still enjoyed it but Casey and Roger have now devolved into almost a Laurel and Hardy bit wheneverthey’re onstage together which is ridiculous. They now seem to turn every two lines into a “bit” and keep it going and going and going, seemingly trying to make each other laugh and I just sat there waiting for a scene where they weren’t together. It’s

My cousin went to Space Camp. I still think about that from time to time and yeah, I'm still jealous. Trying to fIt this show into my life ASAP.

I dreamcast Polec in so many shows and approve this message.
