DAYS OF WINE AND ROSES - Opening Night Critics' Reviews  Feb 20 2024, 08:12:16 AM

Could someone explain to me what this show is trying to say? I’ve seen lots of comments about how powerful and meaningful it is, but not actually what was so powerful and meaningful. And since it really failed to resonate with me in any way, I’m genuinely curious what someone who appreciates it would say they got out of it.

Any chance we'll see Daniel Fish's Oklahoma! again?  Feb 16 2024, 11:26:07 AM

I thought it was thrilling and saw it several times - once at St. Ann’s, maybe five times on Broadway, and once on tour. But I will say, the shift in audience energy as it transferred and then toured was palpable. By the time I saw it in Rhode Island, the audience felt borderline antagonistic toward it (more mid-show and intermission walkouts than I’d ever seen in my life) and the cast looked like they knew it.

In short, no, we will likely never see this particular

CONFIRMED: CABARET at the August Wilson Theatre, Spring 2024  Feb 16 2024, 10:32:11 AM

What would be the point? It’s a pre-written prologue show, not a literal nightlife performance.

Jinkx Monsoon to Play Mama in CHICAGO this January  Feb 12 2024, 11:58:10 AM

Arguably, their best stunt casting in years. She’s proven that she’s not just a moneymaker, but a phenomenal talent who gives an incredible performance in the show. They’ll be smart to get her back whenever they can.

There’s plenty of story to mine for the right paycheck. And I suspect this one was hefty.

Tyne Daly Withdraws From DOUBT, Amy Ryan To Replace  Feb 6 2024, 08:25:25 PM

Bill Snibson said: "So...Isabel Keating saves the day, does a knock-out job (from reports on here) and gets booted back to waiting in the wings?!?! This business is unkind."

She was hired for the job she gets to continue doing, and she earns street cred in the industry that will lead to more jobs. They need a name to sell seats. Would you rather they pull the plug? Have some perspective.

Not that I’m representative of anything but my own opinion, but I wasn’t really interested in seeing this, but I am very interested now.

Franklin Performing Arts to stage "reimagined, immersive" staging of TARZAN with Josh Strickland reprising the lead role  Feb 3 2024, 09:25:22 AM

Impeach2017 said: ""Reimagined" has become a trigger word for some, perhaps with good reason."

While we’re at it, can we retire “immersive” also? Since it has just come to mean “you’re in a performance space and the performers are also there” for most shows that descriptor is slapped on.

Hilty & Simard to lead DEATH BECOMES HER in Chicago spring 2024  Feb 2 2024, 11:37:32 AM

EDSOSLO858 said: "Jordan Catalano said: "Beyond excited for this. Just praying it’s everything “Devil Wears Prada” wasn’t - colorful, campy, hilarious and GAY."

The writers don’t give me hope for Death Becomes Her, but maybe they can prove me wrong.

Don’t worry. There are enough gay ghostwriters behind the scenes, it’ll be plenty gay.

Ruhl and Bareilles writing a musical adaptation of The Interestings  Feb 2 2024, 09:12:00 AM

This is a wonderful bit of news! Sara’s score for Waitress is one of my favorites, and uncommonly theatrical for a first-time musical composer. She clearly loves working in the theatre, so I’m excited to see how this pans out.

Also, libretto for the opera adaptation for Eurydice aside, is this Sarah Ruhl’s first book for a musical? I’ve always found her plays intriguing - if not always successful - but usually a little shaggy, so it’ll be interesting to se

Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 1/28/24  Jan 31 2024, 01:50:51 PM

It sounds like JLC’s departure from ATG is just the end of a contract that is no longer needed for Jamie Lloyd to produce work. He’s a known commodity in the international theatre world, so the contractual relationship is no longer needed. However, it sounds like they’ll collaborate in the future as co-producers; very likely including Sunset Blvd., which was shepherded by ATG.

It’s on Broadway to qualify for Tonys and garner interest in maybe a London transfer and future regional productions. There is almost no world where a 3-month run with no

No, thanks.

Have you entertained the possibility that the rampant entitlement from folks demanding transparency for what appears to be an agreement between Mendez and the producers for her to miss performances is indicative of the generally insufferable nature of many alleged th

I find telling the story in reverse without any “reason” kind of renders it dramatically inert. It’s a lot of filling us in on who’s who and how they relate to the main trio and it comes off as clunky exposition. In a concert staging put up in two weeks and running for a weekend, there’s not much that can be done other than presenting it straightforward. But also, yes, I find Jonathan Groff’s Frank infinitely more charming and likable than I found Colin Don
