SARAH BRIGHTMAN To Star in Australian SUNSET BLVD.

Jamie Lloyd’s version is magnificent. And Sarah used to belt. Look up her filmed performance of Song and Dance on YouTube. 


Michael R. Jackson & Anna K. Jacobs' TEETH Musical at Playwrights Horizons (Winter 2024)
 May 16 2024, 11:31:00 AM

chrishuyen said: "I'm curious if they'll continue working on the show (which certainly received mixed reviews). I'm sure they'll have the usual preview period followed by an opening, but if they don't get the responses they want at that point would they continue to make tweaks throughout the run?"

Are you asking if the show will open at New World with no changes from what was seen at Playwrights Horizons?  Highly unlikely 


Audra McDonald-led GYPSY for 2024-2025 Season?

What the hell does Gypsy have to do with New Orleans?

Broadway Flash said: "Audra wants a new book adaptation. The estatewill allow it $$$"

Yes = paid for by all the $$$ made by OHIO STATE MURDERS

This will either be brilliant or a complete disaster.


Audra McDonald-led GYPSY for 2024-2025 Season?
 May 14 2024, 03:15:28 PM

There is zero chance the Arthur Laurents estate is going to allow his script of GYPSY - considered one of  - if not THE greatest book of an American musical to be re-written


Jennifer Lopez to Star in KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN Film
 May 14 2024, 01:36:02 PM

What are you talking about? This is how all movies are made. They are filmed in a way that concentrates the use of actors so they can film their scenes in the least amount of time possible. It completely makes sense to film the musical numbers first - it has nothing to do with Lopez being demanding 


Jennifer Lopez to Star in KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN Film

Its also possible that her scenes were filmed first. There is a lot of material her character is not in.


Taylor Swift Musical?
 May 14 2024, 09:48:43 AM

Of course she has been approached about her catalog being the basis for a jukebox musical and her response through her management has been that she is not interested in a jukebox musical but does have interest in (someday) writing an original score for a Broadway show.


Rumors about Guys and Dolls London transfer to Broadway?
 May 13 2024, 09:25:07 AM

"Immersive theatre" is usually "environmental" but "environmental theatre" isn't always "immersive." And it seems, honestly that the words are used rather interchangeably.

I personally would call Cabaret, Guys and Dolls, and Here Lies Love chiefly "environmental productions."  Meaning the traditional proscenium divide is eschewed for a playing space that puts the audience in "the world" or "environment"


STEREOPHONIC Original Broadway Cast Recording Thread
 May 13 2024, 09:06:58 AM

Has Will Butler talked at all about his process creating the songs for the show? I'd love to read any interview that people are aware of. I would 'guess' that he wrote the songs in their entirety first and they selected the desired building block pieces of each  to show the evolution of the songs as is relative to the script, but of course I could be completely wrong.

I seem to remember we also hear quite a bit of "Drive" in the play.

 


If Stereophonic didn’t transfer…
 May 8 2024, 12:27:26 PM

I'm surprised but Appropriate seems to have lost a little steam with its transfer to the Belasco. I'd be surprised if it upset director, but I suppose anything could happen.


Update on the Times Square Theatre
 May 8 2024, 12:13:53 PM

And I'd love more information on the supposed zoning laws that would prevent the space from being used as a theatre (for film or theatre). Somone has cited loading dock issues taking up space on 42nd Street, but honestly, daily shipments of merchandise to sell in multiple stores would be more of an ongoing problem than loading in a set. Move CHICAGO there.


Update on the Times Square Theatre
 May 8 2024, 11:56:35 AM

There is a ton of empty real estate on 42nd Street. It’s a kind of terrible idea to develop the old Times Square Theatre as a shopping center. 


Broadway Grosses: Week Ending 5/5/24
 May 7 2024, 03:37:19 PM

The ticket prices for Cabaret are so extreme, word of mouth has to be a lot stronger than 'recommending' it for it to be an incentive for most people to purchase.


2024 Pulitzer Prize Predictions
 May 6 2024, 05:40:25 PM

The Distinctive Baritone said: "theatreguy said: "The 5-person jury only selects the 3 finalists and submits them to the Pulitzer Board. The Board then has a discussion on the finalists which is followed by a vote to decide the winner."

In that case I am surprised theStereophonicandThe Comeuppancewere not the two other finalists. Maybe the voters wanted to, to some extent, make the Pulitzer Prize for Drama this year not just another the


LEMPICKA closing May 19

The original production of 42nd Street ran 3,486 performances.  Perhaps you mean the revival?


THE HEART OF ROCK AND ROLL Opening Night Critics’ Revies
 Apr 29 2024, 04:42:00 PM

There is not 'hate' for this show; only apparent lack of audience interest. The producers will likely want to keep it running as long as is contracted to grant them a percentage of future licensing rights, as the show could be popular on the regional / amateur circuit.


CABARET at the Kit Kat Club (2024) Opening Night Critics' Reviews
 Apr 29 2024, 04:30:50 PM

CHICAGO has been able to run for decades because of its unusually low weekly running costs. CABARET has one of the highest weekly running costs in Broaday history.  You can not compare them.
