Long Broadway stages
 Jul 9 2024, 10:24:39 AM

The stage at The Gershwin is extremely wide.

Horror On Broadway?

DEATHTRAP is a particularly well written dark comedy thriller with suprising plot twists and includes at least one complelety unexpected jump scare. I think it's time for a revival and Bryan Cranston would be perfect for the role of Sidney Bruhl.

For those who may be too young to know, the composer's name is JULE STYNE. Not Julie. Not Jules.

You're welcome.

In the theatre signage world, this type of vertical display is referred to as a "blade".

John Napier's Brilliant Set Designs for the original SUNSET BOULEVARD
 Apr 10 2024, 03:54:13 PM

Watch the video linked below. It is video captured from the infrared stage manager's camera located on the balcony rail. It allows us to "see in the dark". Napier's designs were truly mind blowing. He fit a huge amount of scenery onto that stage! This video is from a preview performance in London. LuPone stars.

Christ, it was barely a hundred years ago my family fled Russia to NYC

Surely they came to NYC through the proper legal process?

The Wiz returning to Bway in 2023 after National Tour
 Feb 18 2024, 02:44:12 PM

Does the current production have an overture? I had forgotten that the original production had an overture that was not recorded for the cast recording. It sounds wonderful and just listen to those strings!

Aaron Tveit, Sutton Foster will next star in ‘Sweeney Todd’
 Feb 14 2024, 11:46:33 AM

Is it just that audiences are used to hearing over-amplified sounds and are disappointed when the full acoustic orchestra isn’t exactly what we expected?

The same thought crossed my mind just last night. I've heard many fan audio clips of Sweeney and the sound sounds perfectly fine. Rich and well balanced. I think many in the audience have lost the ability to actively "listen". Instead they expect the sound to be poured into their heads like

Oh wow. I had a feeling that Sutton wouldn't be a good fit for the role but I never imagined she would sound that bad.

Better to throw your money down the sewer, as Lovett would say.

Isn't it about time for a major Broadway revival of DREAMGIRLS?

Morocco, you are not in the minority at all. Like with Phantom, I'd want to see the original staging and orchestrations and choreo, just with a new cast. Otherwise, it seems like diminishing returns.
Those original descending catwalks in Steppin To The Bad Side looked so awesome...but there's no clear video of them online. Would love to see that effect live.

Here's some good video of the set in action on Broadway.

Chita Rivera has died
 Jan 31 2024, 10:17:36 AM

Listener said: "This one stings.

I only saw Chita once, in Drood, but she was so lovely at the stage door and always so vivacious in her interviews I somehow convinced myself I'd get the chance to see her again in something.

Life is so short. She made the most of it. What a superb performer and person.

Did they end up doing something in her honor at Chicago?

There was mention made at the CHICAGO curtain call.

What a life. Farewell Chita.

Isn't it about time for a major Broadway revival of DREAMGIRLS?
 Jan 26 2024, 05:15:16 PM

I know I'm likely in the minority here but I wish they would completely recreate the original Michael Bennett production with Robin Wagner's light towers, Tharon Musser's masterful lighting, and Theoni V. Aldredge's stunning costumes. All of the elements added up to a flawless look.

Alex Newell must play Effie.
