THE WIZ Opening Night Critics’ Reviews  Apr 18 2024, 12:02:24 AM

Honestly these are kinder than I expected…


Kit Connor and Rachel Zegler to star in ROMEO & JULIET on Broadway?  Apr 16 2024, 01:13:38 PM

This will be pretty huge. Joe Locke in SWEENEY has showed that the HEARTSTOPPER fan base is pretty big and will show up. That mixed with Zegler, the title AND Jack Antonoff (which is honestly what I’m most excited about) will make it a hot ticket.


CABARET at the Kit Kat Club Previews  Apr 4 2024, 11:46:15 PM

I think Frecknell doesn’t really have a clear grasp on the character of Cliff. I thought the actor I saw in London gave truly one of the worst performances I’ve seen on a professional stage, but from what I’m hearing here with an actor I know is great, it feels like it may be a direction problem.

I really loved this in London, but I do feel the reception here will not be as rapturous. 


Who has had the most 1000 show runs on Broadway?  Apr 3 2024, 11:32:29 PM

Stephen Schwartz had had three - PIPPIN, THE MAGIC SHOW, and WICKED.

If you count choreographers, Bob Fosse had four - THE PAJAMA GAME, DAMN YANKEES, HOW TO SUCCEED…, and PIPPIN.


WATER FOR ELEPHANTS Opening Night Critics' Reviews  Mar 21 2024, 10:44:02 PM

I truly have no idea what is going to happen with the Best Musical nominations at this point, and I kind of love it.


Next Sondheim?  Mar 21 2024, 10:38:16 PM

I feel like we’ll see a NIGHT MUSIC soon. There are two parts that any number of (talented) stars could and most likely want to do. But I want lavish - not sitting on the floor like the last one.


AUGUST WILSON'S THE PIANO LESSON Reviews  Mar 19 2024, 01:17:31 PM

That was my thought as well. Only reason this would be announced now would be due to some money coming in through the film rights. I believe they have already completed filming?


THE WHO’S TOMMY Broadway Previews  Mar 8 2024, 11:50:58 PM

Add me to the chorus of those who saw it at the Goodman and LOVED it. I hope it’s well received here.


Sweeney Todd. Will there be a press night for the new cast?  Mar 7 2024, 12:06:04 PM

alovingfan said: "Per social media.. Adam Feldman goes the weekend of March 14."

This makes sense, getting the reviews out right before all the new springs shows open.


Eddie Redmaynes involvement in cabaret  Mar 6 2024, 12:38:37 AM

If not a silent producer, he certainly will be getting a big chunk of the box office during his run. The entire production was designed around his interpretation of the Emcee, which was clear to me even seeing it with someone else playing the role.


WATER FOR ELEPHANTS Broadway Previews  Feb 22 2024, 06:20:18 PM

WICKED still does their in-person lottery. I lost the last time I tried it, but ended up being able to grab a great seat as a “lottery loser” for $60 I believe. Maybe they’re hoping to employ a similar strategy.


Idina Menzel to star in new stage musical REDWOOD at La Jolla  Feb 22 2024, 12:52:57 AM

Haven’t seen the show any won’t unless it transfers to New York, but you have to respect Idina’s commitment to new material. Each time she has originated a role on or off Broadway it’s been an original role, with a different composer or writer each time.


Jeremy Jordan missing in-person rehearsals because he had a few concerts! OUCH  Feb 19 2024, 03:44:50 PM

There is no way this wasn’t part of his contract negotiation - calm down.


Aaron Tveit, Sutton Foster will next star in ‘Sweeney Todd’  Feb 15 2024, 11:14:50 PM

I imagine they will invite them back, but are giving them a bit of time to settle in.

MY FAIR LADY was re-reviewed when Laura Benanti took over. 


APPROPRIATE Transferring to the Belasco  Feb 10 2024, 04:25:19 PM

I wonder with Annapurna involved if there is some deal in there for them with the film rights. Their output has been less as of late, but given some of the names involved I could see them producing it.


Aaron Tveit, Sutton Foster will next star in ‘Sweeney Todd’  Feb 10 2024, 01:07:07 AM

I think it’s wild to judge her “Worst Pies” without seeing it in connection with the vocal. It’s clear from the audience reaction that she’s doing a lot during it and they seem to be enjoying it.


THE QUEEN OF VERSAILLES musical will have pre-Bway tryout this summer in Boston  Feb 8 2024, 03:18:18 PM

I’m actually shocked that one of Chenoweth’s development projects is actually happening! And a new Schwartz score?? Incredibly exciting!


Tyne Daly Withdraws From DOUBT, Amy Ryan To Replace  Feb 6 2024, 08:45:38 PM

I’m sure Tyne was giving an excellent performance, as she always does. I think the energy people are referring to is that this revival didn’t exactly feel…exciting in any way? Amy Ryan may not be more of a draw than Tyne, but I think there is more of a desire to see what she will do with the role.


NY City Center Encores 2024 season: ONCE UPON A MATTRESS with Sutton Foster (adapted by Amy Sherman-Palladino), JELLY'S LAST JAM, and TITANIC  Jan 26 2024, 11:20:23 PM

The Sweeney score as far as Lovett goes isn't very vocally demanding.

But as long as critics eat her up, even when it's

I’m also shocked by the lack of true belting on “Shy”. It feels a role tailor-made for Sutton. I did see her with a mask on during some of the rehearsal footage, so I do wonder if she’s not 100%. She’s also working on the SWEENEY score simultaneously.
