Not sure if this is the same, but... for what it's worth... PLUS, the show site changed its artwork...

Join us in our 54th season at The Ellie Caulkins Opera House! The Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble presents “Black Orpheus” encompassing the richly diverse aspects of Brazilian culture through two distinctive works.

“Divinities’ reveals the power of the Orixas, the African Yoruba deities whose spiritual influence is felt throughout Brazil. Wise and protective – or jealous and mischievous?  These gods and goddesses are as complex as the humans they watch over! 

“Orfeo Negro” follows the journey of love and passion that leads Orfeo into the depths of the Spirit World in search of his beloved Eurydice. Will he be permitted to lead her back into the light, or will he remain with her forever, united in Death?  The timeless myth told with a uniquely Brazilian perspective!

September 14 & 15 at the Denver Performing Arts Complex

Carmel Dean composing THE GHOST AND MRS. MUIR musical
 Jul 9 2024, 10:58:59 AM

Carmel Dean (Funny Girl, The Notebook) is now in the midst of composing R.A Dick's romantic-fantasy novel The Ghost and Mrs. Muir for the stage. Writing both music and lyrics, Dean's adaptation is expected to play London upon completion.

Said Dean, "Being asked to write the score for this much beloved book is truly a dream come true. The story is sweeping and epic, full of mystery, humor, and of course romance, and lends itself perfectly to being musicalized for the stage. I can’t wait to bring it to life in collaboration with the rest of this brilliant and passionate team!"

Actually surprised ALW’s adaptation of The Wizard of Oz never actually made it to Broadway. 


HELLO, I'M DOLLY bio-musical headed for the stage!
 Jul 2 2024, 12:55:19 PM

I mean… didn’t Sher give us Bridges of Madison County? I think this alone is maybe some way for us to rethink what a “Dolly Parton jukebox bio musical” is going to be. Like… it might not be The Cher Show or On Your Feet or Tina vibes.

BLUEBERRIES eyeing Broadway?
 Jun 26 2024, 09:24:36 AM

BROADWAY NEWS EXCLUSIVE: "Pulitzer Prize finalist ‘Here There Are Blueberries’ is eyeing Broadway" by Broadway News' Andy Lefkowitz - "Commercial producers Sonia Friedman and Brian and Dayna Lee are teaming with TectonicTheater Project, which developed the play, for a 2025 international tour followed by a hopeful Main Stem transfer. ... 

“It exposes a side of Holocaust history that is not widely known,” Moisés Kaufman, Tectonic’s founding artistic director who also conceived, co-wrote and directed “Blueberries,” said in a phone interview. “The Holocaust is one of the most written-about things in the history of literature, and because these photos are new, they’re showing us something that wasn’t known before. And there’s something powerful about that.” ...

“I think one of the things that excites me about the possibility of taking it to Broadway is the fact that there are a lot of audiences that will go to Broadway who will not come to Off-Broadway,” added Kaufman. “And I think the fact that you couldn’t get a ticket at New York Theatre Workshop bodes well for a future on Broadway.” June 30 will mark the end of the play’s twice-extended Off-Broadway run, which has now become the highest-grossing production in NYTW’s 45-year history." https://bway.ly/of7kw0

Idle-written THE SPAMALOT DIARIES book to be released
 Jun 20 2024, 09:15:45 PM

https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/773431/the-spamalot-diaries-by-eric-idle/
 

From comedy legend Eric Idle, the fascinating inside story of bringing Monty Python and the Holy Grail to Broadway as the unlikely theatrical hit Spamalot
 
On March 17, 2005, Spamalot debuted on Broadway to rapturous reviews for its star-studded creative team, including creators Eric Idle and John du Prez, director Mike Nichols, and stars Hank Azaria, David Hyde Pierce, Sara Ramirez, Tim Curry, and more. But long before the show was the toast of Broadway and the winner of three Tony Awards, it was an idea threatening to fizzle out before it could find its way into existence.
 
Now, in The Spamalot Diaries, Eric Idle shares original journal entries and raw email exchanges—all featuring his whip-smart wit—that reveal the sometimes bumpy, always entertaining path to the show’s unforgettable run. In the months leading up to that opening night, financial anxieties were high with a low-ceiling budget and expectations that it would take two years to break even. Collaborative disputes put decades-long friendships to the test. And the endless process of rewriting was a task as passionate as it was painstaking. Still, there’s nothing Idle would change about that year. Except for the broken ankle. He could do without the broken ankle.
 
Chronicling every minor mishap and triumph along the way, as well as the creative tension that drove the show to new heights, The Spamalot Diaries is an unforgettable look behind the curtain of a beloved musical and inside the wickedly entertaining mind of one of our most treasured comic performers.

Released October 8, 2024

Hilty & Simard to lead DEATH BECOMES HER in Chicago spring 2024

RippedMan said: "According to a casting notice they are looking for tumbler and people good with acrobatics. Guess they're adding some stuff to the show?"

Is it for the Madeline stunt double that does the fall down the staircase? I hope that doesn’t mean Warren is not longer continuing with the show. But wouldn’t be surprised if he’s in the ensemble for KC Schmigadoon since he did the series.
