Check Murin's Twitter.

Sondheimite rocks. So much. Which is why it's frustrating to see him be the one scapegoated on the tweet that's now circulating.

I stated on here—twice—that I believe Murin's wonderful standby is delivering a superior performance as Anna. Both posts were subsequently deleted. Neither of them addressed mental health in the slightest.

Mods, if ^this^ gets deleted, then there's clearly more happening behind the scenes than you say.

Mods, I will be disappointed (but not surprised) if this inquiry gets deleted. There is no "inappropriate" discussion or "slander" in the above post. It is a genuine question.

Ain't Too Proud, Be More Chill, Tootsie discount codes

Thanks for sharing these! But the Tootsie code isn't working for me...

Seems mildly inappropriate for a Christmas show.

Must see shows?
 Dec 8 2018, 10:54:27 PM

Of everything that's opened this season so far, The Ferryman is easily the #1 must-see piece of theatre. Followed by The Waverly GalleryMockingbird, and Torch Song.

As for the spring, we won't know how things are until they arrive, but it seems like the most buzz is behind Hadestown and Tootsie, with a big question mark behind the revival of Kiss Me, Kate.&

I was gonna go, but the TDF ticket price of $49 exceeded the $0.01 I was willing to spend on this. Oh well.

Upcoming Waitress cast replacements?

I'm always happy when Gavin gets booked! But this show is such a bore, I can't bring myself back to the Atkinson for it again (and I went back for Nicolette, who I thought was lovely).

So like... can they close on February 3?

Sara Bareilles is returning from January 7 to February 3, joined by Gavin Creel.

THE PROM Previews

The next few weeks will be most telling for their run. They definitely got a bit of a bump with largely positive reviews and exposure on the Macy's Thanksgiving telecast. However, their "bump" is only getting them to the mid-$500k range, which is still less than ideal for a big, new Broadway musical. It could well make it to June, but I wouldn't be surprised if they cut their losses and close mid-winter.

Cast Albums Grammy 2019?

It is a great list.

I will be very disappointed if The Band's Visit loses to Jesus Christ Superstar.

I saw this a few weeks ago and totally forgot to comment on it! I am in agreement with bwayphreak234. I found it completely middling and just okay. Nothing is outright bad about it; it just feels circular and repetitive. Like, I got the point of the play 10 minutes into it. The performances are all fine, but yes, not must-see theatre by any stretch. The definition of a middle-of-the-road play.

amNY is positive, giving 4 out of 4 stars. It "flashes by as quickly as one of the commercials running on one of the countless screens in the background."

Brantley's rave for the London production in November 2017:

Brantley for the New York Times on the Broadway production is positive. Critic's Pick seal. A full-on love letter for Cranston, who is "all but flaying the skin off his body."

Worth noting that Brantley doesn't so much adore everything else: "If the bravura dementia of his Howard makes much of the rest of the show seem as two-dimensional as a flat TV screen, it’s a trade-off I’m willing to accept, albeit with a sigh."

Just "fall 2019." Again, I don't think anything is ever set in stone until we get a first preview or opening night date and/or a theater!

The 2019-2020 Broadway Season - Confirmed Productions

I don't add a show to the "confirmed" list until we get a date or a theater!

Terry Teachout for the Wall Street Journal is negative. He says everything surrounding Bryan Cranston has the "unintended effect of turning Network into a one-man show." "If you’re willing to pay Broadway prices to see Mr. Cranston give a tremendous performance, there’s a chance you’ll go home happy. Otherwise, you might as well rent the movie." Also disliked Maslany.
