Bring Back Birdie.  Stewart, Strauss, Adams and Rivera reunite with Conrad, and the result is gone in two days.

Looking at the box office for Mr. Clooney's most recent directorial effortThe Boys in the Boat,​​​​​its receipts likely did not cover production & marketing costs.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way To the Forum film

"I love the show and would love to see a revival with Josh Gad and Andrew Randells."

What an idea!  They would have a great time and so would everyone watching.

rattleNwoolypenguin said: "I don’t think the film is awful. It’s just very much its own weird late 60’s thing. You have to divorce it from the musical.

It’s directed by the guy who made those trippy aimless Beatles movies and you can tell.

The actual stage musical is 10/10 farce and we’ve never matched it with another comedy musical libretto since. (Into the Woods and Gentlemen’s Guide came close)

You can argue all

Theatres that are 100 years old and landmarked inside and out

What is the status of the Mark Hellinger/Time Square Church?  I hear they have kept the theater in immaculate condition.  I also know that its original entrance was on Broadway and not on 51st. Street, though that change happened long before it became a church.

It's one of those adaptations where you can tell the screwed it up from the very first scene."

The 77th Annual Tony Award Snubs!
 Jun 16 2024, 06:37:29 PM

Doubt not being nominated for Best Revival is strange.  Three of its four cast members are nominees and only three plays were nominated for Best Revival - there clearly could have been one or two more.

I don't agree that Sarah is at all wrong, but Viola would be incredible in this role.

Jessica Lange is equally superb, arguably even more so, in The Great Lillian Hall, which just started streaming on MAX. She is having quite a year.

I never heard that before either. What a shame.

Encores! did ''Purlie'' in 2005 with Blair Underwood,Anika Noni Rose, Lillias White and John Cullum. Wish I had seen it.

That's a great cast.  I wish I had, too.  I saw the original production of Purlie at the Broadway Theatre way back when, in my youth. A delightful show I have nothing bu

MOTHER PLAY Opening Night Critics’ Reviews
 May 25 2024, 10:24:07 PM

I have no idea what she has, but the Tony Award interview circuit always strikes me as risky.  The only one who seemed to understand this was Bette Midler.  Actors need a break in their time off, and in promoting both Mother Play and The Great Lillian Hall Jessica has been very busy.

She is so great in Mother Play.  I hope she's back and feeling good as new tomorrow.

Good looking guy, great voice, but much, much too surly for this role.

I give Tina Sinatra credit for not doing that.


What is the worst production you have ever seen on Broadway? What is the worst show?
 May 19 2024, 11:25:43 AM

This was off-Broadway, at the Public, but major Broadway talent was involved.  The Knife is the worst show I've ever seen.

He's been seemingly linked to that for like 10 years, which doesn't feel like a
