Welch’s GATSBY to premiere in 2024 ART
 Jul 19 2024, 01:15:39 PM

MadAboutTheBoy said: "I'd love to hear some of the music from this. Has anything been released or teased yet?"

No, they are being very secretive. And everyone who attends must put their phone in Yonder pouches.

I was able to catch it for the second time recently and glad I went again. Score is fairly strong, but still have issues with a lot of the lyrics. I'm not great at catching changes, but enjoyed the show much more the second time. Show still runs

Where might this be located?

Jarethan said: "I read three knock-down raves for the show and a decidedly mixed one from Theatremania. It will be very interesting to see what they decide to do post-ART. In every scenario but one, you would expect them to book a Broadway theatre (if they had not already). Unfortunately, they are dealing with the one scenario that creates problems... an inferior version beat them to the punch and is doing respectively at the box office).

I guess that London would be the best move...Build some time between productions and hope for acclaim that they can leveraged here.

I see it July 9th and can't wait.

Other less positive reviews, which I don't think will matter. I'd be surprised if it's not Broadway bound.

He can't sing this score though, can he?

dramamama611 said: "Wow (to the review). I'm really hating that I went so early in the run (only the first official preview), and missed what seems like a lot. I've not felt like that before from a preview"

Same! And how about those ticket prices for the remaining performances!?

Sorry if this makes me a "hater" -- but he is SO out of his league and outmatched by her, it's crazy.


To be fair, not many are in her league. But, can't you just enjoy it? I mean, come on.

FLOYD COLLINS to be given Broadway revival by Lincoln Center

Jesse St. James said: "Steven Pasquale is in Floyd Collins, thats why he’s not doing JRB’s Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil which has plans for Broadway"

If this is true, which part?

Saw it tonight. It would be interesting to revisit the show later in the run to see what will be changed. Thought the three female leads were excellent. Male leads were fine. The highlight no doubt is the choreography.  However, I had a few problems with the show. I just didn't care enough about the daisy/Gatsby relationship. Not sure if it's the book, or the songs or the actors, but I wasn't moved... Wasn't a big fan of the other Gatsby either, but I bought their relatio

Impressive week for almost everyone other than Heart of Rock and Roll and Lempicka.

I guess I was right after all. Would like to hear their rationale.

I really don't understand Cabaret.  Eddie Redmayne is that much of a draw despite the mostly negative reviews?

Curious how the reviews will affect Cabaret going forward. The Wiz is the one that continues to surprise me the most.

George in DC said: "Huss417 said: "It just doesn't seem fair to combine the acting awards they way they do now. For a total of 4 instead of 8."

Why isn't it fair? It takes gender out of the equation. And instead of having one winner out of 4, you now have 2 winners out of 8. Same ratio, same fairness.


This is how it should be done for every awards show.

A lot to parse through, but my main takeaway is that there are just too many shows right now.

Any chance at all of this being recorded somehow?

Impressed at how Sweeney continues to do.

The music is incredible, in my opinion. Of course the things I hypothetically heard may have changed, but it’s very much a non-mt sound but it’s *so* gorgeous!"

Hope you're right! It's what I'm looking forward to the most with this production. Had no idea who Thomas Bartlett was until recently, but very excited to hear what he and Florence have come up with!

Feel like The Wiz is way under the radar! Very impressive.
