SARAH BRIGHTMAN To Star in Australian SUNSET BLVD.  Feb 5 2024, 11:47:35 AM

SweetLips22 said: "I am sure that I remember reading many moons ago that Ms Brightman went to an Italian? vocal coach who completely transformed that way that she produced each note.

You could see that she changed the shape of her mouth, making it more rounder as she sang, and actually produced a different sound because of how she breathed and placed each note. This affected her diction.

I would line up in a heart beat to see this train wreck because there is no

Glynnis Johns has died at 100  Jan 4 2024, 04:28:57 PM

Very sad to hear this, however I’m glad she still had quality of life right up to her 100th birthday, and was well-celebrated.

Immersive AMERICAN PSYCHO Premiering 2025 In Brooklyn?  Nov 19 2023, 06:37:50 PM

That sounds like an interesting concept.

I saw the Cleveland regional premiere of "American Psycho" in October, 2022. It was staged in a very small studio theater, inside a large industrial building, which had been converted into a bunch of art galleries and studios. It worked really well in an intimate environment and felt immersive.

I'd definitely make a trip to Brooklyn for this.

Jordan Catalano said: "I’m about two hours into the 48 hour run time of the audio book. I still can’t believe she recorded the entire thing - I’m dying to know how long it took.

Right?? Think of how many takes she must have done. How many times did she listen back to the recording, only to re-record a particular line until she was completely satisfied with everything?

From later in her career, and a bit more operatic in style, but here you go!<

SARAH BRIGHTMAN To Star in Australian SUNSET BLVD.  Oct 12 2023, 11:48:12 AM

I wonder how much creative input she'll have when it comes to this production.  She's notoriously headstrong when it comes to the staging, design and production of her own concert tours, photos, album art and music videos.  She also famously works with the same makeup people, costume designers and photographers on a consistent basis.

For someone who's so used to everyone saying "yes" to her, I would imagine there must have been some concessions built int

There’s now a teaser video on the show’s social media accounts where Sarah turns up in a car at His Majesty’s Theatre. She hesitates before walking out onto the stage, as if she thinks the Phantom is about to jump out and get her.

I’m imaging her Norma to be something like this, and I’m fine with that!

I’m a die-hard Sarah fan and I must say, this is not something I EVER had on my bingo card!  Wish I lived in Australia! 

The Wiz returning to Bway in 2023 after National Tour  Oct 8 2023, 03:53:08 PM

Per a social media post by the local presenter, Playhouse Square, this afternoon's matinee in Cleveland was canceled "Due to a medical emergency with one of the principal cast members."

As of now they say "Tonight's evening performance is scheduled to go on as planned."

Glynis Johns is 100  Oct 5 2023, 06:49:35 AM

That recent interview is amazing! This is an extremely rare appearance by Ms. Johns. Glad to see she’s happy, enjoying herself, and still full of life. I love that she shows off her much deserved Tony Award!

Faye Dunaway - Sunset Blvd  Sep 6 2023, 11:25:52 AM

I'm confused by what Lloyd Webber really had to lose in this situation.

I'm assuming Glenn Close and the production had already been decently/favorably reviewed in Los Angeles, especially since the company was in the process of leaving for New York.

Would negative reviews of Faye Dunaway merely replacing in the Los Angeles production have affected or threatened the show's success on Broadway that much?

Perhaps someone could clarify the potential impact for me.

I had the same idea in April.  I think she'd be great in the role! Also would add a little stunt casting element to the tour.

Worst Pet Peeves in Community Theater  Jul 14 2023, 01:08:15 PM

- Actors who are not mic'd.  I don't care how "intimate" your studio theater is. If I've done my homework before attending a performance and can't hear the actors (especially over live musicians), odds are there are a lot of other audience members who are completely lost and have no idea what's going on.

- Multiple email blasts or posts on social media using the phrase "Tickets going fast!", when you can pull up the seating charts for mu

And, althoughJoaquina Kalukango has a great voice, it's not right for "Wishing". They should have gotten someone from Phantom to sing the song.

Agreed. I wonder if they might have reached out to Sarah Brightman about this, and

HBP said: "It looks like all these photos of the set from the NOMTW and Thank Goodness shoots. Couldn’t the production send some security crew o whichever spot that is and stop people from taking pictures?"

These "leaks" and the subsequent hype are exactly what the production wants. Free publicity and quite a bit of buzz.
