Titanic at City Center
 Jun 23 2024, 08:11:24 PM

I went this afternoon. I don;t think the show is that great, but I thought the score was wonderful and the cast was great. Really enjoyed it. The full orchestra made the music sound magnificent.

Stage Door Experiences Lately
 Apr 10 2024, 06:55:26 PM

Went to Enemy of the People today. Stage door was very chill. Everyone came out. Jeremy Strong came out almost immediately and was friendly and down to earth. Pretty much the exact opposite of that New Yorker profile. He said real ice is being used in that scene. Michael Imperioli also came out, as did the rest of the cast. Crowd was very respectful. Good experience.

NY City Center Encores 2024 season: ONCE UPON A MATTRESS with Sutton Foster (adapted by Amy Sherman-Palladino), JELLY'S LAST JAM, and TITANIC

I saw Jelly's Last Jam today. What I loved: the performances, the choreography, the music. Especially Nicholas Christopher -- wow! I saw him as Sweeney so i knew he could sing, but it's such a different style and I did not know he could also dance! Also loved Joaquina Kalukango. Only saw her in Slave Play. She was awesome! The tap choreo was amazing too. I also really enjoyed the Morton songs.

I didn't think the actual musical was great though. Ticks all the boxes of a bio-

I just can't wait to see the eldest boy in person.

Hard disagree. I found her hilarious. I found Natalie Gold the weakest of the cast. 

But Fanning has a big following becaus

I saw Appropriate on Broadway last night. I went mostly because I love this cast (particularly Elle Fanning) and wanted to see them onstage.

The good: the acting is amazing across the board. Sarah Paulson is everything you'd expect her to be as Toni -- angry, neurotic, bitter. I also LOVED Elle Fanning as the hippy dippy River and Corey Stoll as Bo. But everyone was great across the board, down to the wonderful child actors they had playing Bo and Rachel (Natalie Gold) children. I

Groban & Ashford in SWEENEY TODD On Broadway
 Oct 22 2023, 08:48:14 AM

Is there a reason people keeping saying Aaron Tveit?

And I absolutely love Tveit but isn't he in the totally wrong range for Sweeney? Sweeney is a baritone and Aaron is a tenor.

Wow I'm excited. I literally have rewatched The Great so many times and annoyed my friends by telling them to watch it. 

Leading Roles that Don't Really Do Much/Featured Roles that Do A Ton

Nick in Funny Girl is a lead but it's a real nothingburger of a role.

PARADE On Broadway - News & Discussion Thread

Sutton Ross said: "It seems like you wanted a character who lives out loud and who screams and sobs often. That wasn't Leo Frank.


Absolutely not. But your aggression towards people who didn't love the show as much as you did is kinda creepy.

Leo is written this way because this is how the real life Leo Frank was. Yes, he is passive and has flaws but this is a real human being who

Want to add that I felt that the characterizations of the black characters was a bit ... off. I wouldn't say it was offensive, but the way Jim Conley sang a number that sounded like a spiritual was sort of too on the nose, if that makes sense.

PARADE On Broadway - News & Discussion Thread

I finally saw Parade this afternoon. First of all, Max Chernin was on as Dorsey and he was fantastic. A frighteningly fanatical zealot.

I expected great things out of Parade and in some ways it didn't disappoint. It was incredibly well-acted, well-sung, and well-directed. Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond were absolutely tremendous as the leads, but the whole thing was incredibly well-cast. Really enjoyed Jay Armstrong Johnson as Craig and Erin Rose Doyle as Mary Phagan and Sean Allan

Evita got a lot of pushback way back when from Argentinians. Eva Peron was a revered figure and they didn't like the portrayal of her as grasping and amoral. I don't know whether she is still as worshipped today.
