STEREOPHONIC Original Broadway Cast Recording Thread
 Jun 14 2024, 01:22:43 PM

I noticed a few places (Best Buy, Barnes & Noble) were taking preorders for Vinyl editions of this recording, so I bit the bullet to order one despite there being no news about it or it not being on the official merch store. Unsurprisingly it was supposed to arrive today but has been “delayed”. I was expecting this and will probably end up getting a refund if it doesn’t change in the next week or so. 

Just wanted to share so if if people also see this, th


“N/A” at Lincoln Center Theater - Mitzi E. Newhouse

You’re right, thanks for clarifying. 

The point still stands that the reason it’s happening now is because someone wrote it, and someone else liked it enough to produce it. Sometimes it’s as simple as that.

Because the playwright wrote it and when LCT programming read the script they liked it.

Margo Siebert confirmed on the Signature Theater instagram that a Kickstarter to help fund a cast album will be coming out soon. I imagine it will reach its goal quickly like the Octet one, so a cast album is more or less confirmed.

She also talked about how The Wolf had a song in early previews but it was cut. Such a shame, I actually think The Wolf is the least developed character and I would have loved for him to get a song. Well, outside of the dance.

Love listening to this. This is my best score winner hands down. Despite being firmly “contemporary” musical theater, it is probably the most “traditional” of all the best score nominees. I think in a season that has both a play with music and a dance musical stealing people’s hearts, Tony voters will choose this best score as a nod to the more traditional “book” musical. 

Congrats Shaina, it really is excellent.&n

Agreed Illinoise should do Chicago. Man of Steel would be a good choice too. They’re both impressive but not the climax of the show, leaving the audience wanting more.

i don’t think the producers want to pay for cast chiropractors

Also curious! Love the movie musical but never see the stage show produced… curious how this is!

Yes it’s spelled “Jule” but it’s pronounced “Joo-lee”. So its not an absurd mistake to make.

JOB transferring to Broadway at the Hayes; Peter Friedman and Sydney Lemmon reprising roles
 May 28 2024, 10:23:02 AM

Like the occupation. Without giving anything away, it is about a tech worker who places a LOT of meaning and value into their job. It’s also one of the best plays I’ve seen this year. Very excited this will have a larger platform!

What is the worst production you have ever seen on Broadway? What is the worst show?

Getting The Band Back Together was so bad it made me actually angry

What is there to say? Dave does it again. The songs “haze” and “love always leaves you in the end” are sure to be on repeat for everyone when this recording inevitably comes out.

fyi I loved the little easter egg when Margo sang “Refresh” in the exact way she did during Octet.

Hate to say there’s a lot to like in this slate of programming. I’ll check a few out but maybe I’ll swap out my baked potato for a salad come dinner time.

This kind of comment is basically a guarantee I'll love this show. Can't wait!

Listen, is this a perfect show? No. But it really struck me despite its flaws. I found it exciting and sleek and sexy. I’d take 5 Lempicka’s over 1 Water For Elephants any day.

I haven’t bought a physical Broadway cast recording in over a decade, but if they released this on vinyl I’d buy it no questions asked.
