Its elegant, but I'd love some sparkle. They should have gotten the companies who marketed for Arden and Rubinstein to find something as powerful and imaginative!

Yeah, it's rather "eh," but it is advertising to a much older audience. It's not going for the Instagram crowd. I don't think the people going to the show are going to care. You're going for the divas. I know I am.

Will this show sell? Other than the two leading ladies, what about this show will be a draw to audiences?

And not to think to far ahead but how will this show fair after the ladies depart? They'll need some pretty big names to fill those shoes.

I have tickets for this and, tbh, I'm really only seeing it for LuPone and Ebersole. I doubt this will be a long-runner and I doubt they would recast at the end of their contracts. I suspect this will, at best, just run to the end of LuPone and Ebersole's contract. Hope to be proven wrong though.

"Going for the divas" should be the show's tagline. That's why I'm going WAR PAINT on Broadway

If this does continue past their contracts I would want Patti to extend and Glenn close to replace Christine. 

That would be PURE GOLD.

The Broadway artwork looks like what I would've expected for the out-of-town tryout. It's flat, bland and ugly. The Chicago artwork was splashy, flashy and gorgeous!

Hopefully the show can run for a year, turn a small profit then close. But if we want to entertain replacements:

'Reopen' with Bernadette Peters/Donna Murphy (in the Lupone role) or replace Ebersole with Bernadette and Lupone stay on.

 

 


"You can't overrate Bernadette Peters. She is such a genius. There's a moment in "Too Many Mornings" and Bernadette doing 'I wore green the last time' - It's a voice that is just already given up - it is so sorrowful. Tragic. You can see from that moment the show is going to be headed into such dark territory and it hinges on this tiny throwaway moment of the voice." - Ben Brantley (2022) "Bernadette's whole, stunning performance [as Rose in Gypsy] galvanized the actors capable of letting loose with her. Bernadette's Rose did take its rightful place, but too late, and unseen by too many who should have seen it" Arthur Laurents (2009) "Sondheim's own favorite star performances? [Bernadette] Peters in ''Sunday in the Park,'' Lansbury in ''Sweeney Todd'' and ''obviously, Ethel was thrilling in 'Gypsy.'' Nytimes, 2000

Agreed, Greased. The Chicago artwork was far more interesting and aesthetically pleasing than what's up at the Nederlander right now, regardless of the type of audience the show is aiming for. Between this and what's up at the Lunt-Fontanne for Charlie right now, I'm finding myself increasingly disappointed by the state of marketing and ad design on Broadway right now.

i think i would have preferred the Chicago font with the faces of the Broadway art. I might get creative on photoshop to satisfy my own curiosity....
