Follies inspired skit on SNL
 May 20 2024, 01:58:01 PM

I googled the difference and still don't think there's really a difference. Even the dictionary defines "skit" as "a short theatrical sketch or act."


What is the worst production you have ever seen on Broadway? What is the worst show?

Joesph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat - (Pantages Theater, LA, 2014) starring Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo from an early season of American Idol. It was easily the worst thing I have ever seen - although first time seeing that show"

Ah, yes, I also saw that at the Pantages and yes, it was the worst thing I’ve ever seen.

Kimberly Akimbo. It was like watching a bad sitcom with forgettable musical numbers shoehorned in. 


City Centers 24-25: Ragtime, Urinetown, LaChiusa's Wild Party, Love Life

Ragtime and Urinetown top my list of shows I want to see but never have. Too bad I probably won't be able to see these.


Sleep No More - what kind of shape is it in?
 May 14 2024, 12:07:38 PM

I did it two weeks ago and the crowds were ridiculous. It seems like they get worse every time I go. It's now impossible to follow actors or get one-on-ones. I've seen it eight times now and I think that's enough. It used to be my favorite thing but I don't find much enjoyment in it anymore, so I probably wouldn't go back even if it wasn't closing. Which is not to say I don't recommend seeing it if you've never gone. I think it's still worth doing at least

Nobody has to do anything and see everything.


But if they did see everything, they would have to mortgage their homes. Was the joke really not clear?

 


The 77th Annual Tony Award Nominations for 2024

Broadway Flash said: "I haven’t seen Jessica Lange yet, but I thought Rachel McAdams was pretty wonderful in Mary Jane. I think I appreciate her performance more now thinking back on it than I did in the theatre. Does anybody think she will beat Sarah Paulson?"

I don't think she will but I hope she does. I found her performance extremely moving, whereas Paulson's performance was very one-note, I felt.

I sense no self-entitlement from that article, merely someone being honest and vulnerable about her emotions on an Instagram post and Playbill for some reason picking it up as a news story.

Eh, I still say the best show won (I’m not a fan of Caroline).

I didn’t like it at the Armory. The two folks I was with also didn’t care for it, so you’re definitely not alone.

I haven’t seen it on Broadway, but one of my biggest issues was that it felt swallowed up by the Armory space -

I wouldn’t say I disliked it, per se, but I definitely didn’t like it. It felt like a weird pantomimed production of Godspell a lot of the time.

No, of course not, but I think it would do okay.

hearthemsing22 said: "Why can't things just be special Broadway runs?"

They can, but they can also be things experienced by people who want to see them but can’t get to New York. And since that way benefits many people and the other way benefits no one, I don’t see a problem with it.

Avenue Q is a much better musical with a far better book and score than Wicked.


MARY JANE Reviews

I saw the matinee today and loved it. In a NY trip that so far has included Merrily We Roll Along, Kimberly Akimbo, Stereophonic, Mother Play, and Appropriate, this is the best thing I’ve seen all week. It’s hard not to love Rachel McAdams and I honestly think she deserves the Tony for this. But the whole cast is good. April Matthis was my favorite part of The Piano Lesson and she continues to impress here. Brenda Wehle is the other big standout.

I was also at the matinee today. I didn’t expect to like it because I’m not a Sondheim guy and my only other experience with this show was that terrible L.A. production a few years ago, but I thought it was really good. All three leads were impressive.

The question is, why does it bother you when people talk about extensions?

Jesus. They give us something new and fun to do that they absolutely didn’t have to do and that no one is required to participate in and people still complain about it.

VintageSnarker said: "Do people like Company that much more than A Little Night Music? Or have not that many people voted yet?"

That surprised me, too. Not that Company is winning but that it's winning in such a landslide. I've actually never seen either one but I've listened to the cast recordings for both and I much prefer ALNM's score to Company's.


WATER FOR ELEPHANTS Opening Night Critics' Reviews

It is a fascinating face-off: a musical written by men based on a popular romance novel written by a woman versus a musical written by women based on a popular romance novel written by a man. It’ll be interesting to see which one comes out on top.
