AMADEUS to be adapted into a series starring White Lotus' Will Sharpe  Feb 20 2024, 12:24:42 PM

They announced that they were developing it well over a year ago, I was wondering when we'd get some updates.

Timothy Nolen, first American Phantom, has died  Feb 13 2024, 11:19:24 PM

I didn't see it reported on here (sorry if I missed it), but per Wikipedia and Sag-Aftra magazine Timothy Nolen passed away last August. He famously replaced Michael Crawford in Phantom of the Opera on Broadway, becoming the first American actor (except understudies) and first operatic baritone to play the role full time. He appeared on Broadway in two other productions, sang at the Met a few times, played Sweeney Todd at Houston Grand Opera and Judge Turpin in several productions, most notably alongside Patti LuPone and George Hearn.

He was 82.

Broadway Cares ripped for directing funds to Gaza  Feb 13 2024, 11:06:55 PM

The Palestinian genocide seems disastrous and urgent enough to me.

Aaron Tveit, Sutton Foster will next star in ‘Sweeney Todd’  Feb 4 2024, 03:13:13 AM

Annaleigh Ashford would mean nothing for the box office in London so unless Groban feels as strongly about her as JG did for Sunday they could easily recast her. I'm not even sure if Groban is as big in the UK as he is in the States, but for a limited season they could do good business. Since they are okay with casting tenors in the role they might get Julian Ovenden instead.

Please, you could get 80£ front stalls tickets on the day and TKTS for most of October and November. That's over 50% discount. It sold well and did good business, but it wasn't exactly Hamilton at the Public.

For clarity's sake re: Lead Actor in a Musical and Roger Bart, the Tonys Admin Committee has already determined eligibility for Back to the Future and Roger Bart is in Featured Actor, as he is billed under the title and a category change was not announced. Casey Likes, on the other hand, is in Leading Actor.

Maryann Plunkett (Bernadette's replacement) in Sunday in the Park with George  Dec 10 2023, 08:33:53 AM

I think Victoria Clark was the understudy and mentioned the standby being awful to her — would that be Maryann? This is very off-topic, but it always amazed me how poorly they kept casting George after Mandy departed. Like, good voices, but the acting...

British transfers?  Dec 1 2023, 10:02:56 AM

It's not selling very well even in London, so unless they recast it with Judi Dench and Colin Firth it doesn't stand a chance

Interestingly the New York Times liked her production of The House of Bernarda Alba, which opened last night, better than any London newspaper
