I will definitely making the trip up this summer to see this. Emerson is my alma mater and I simply love the Colonial. Such a gorgeous theatre.

Gatsby ends performances July 21, and Queen of Versailles starts performances July 15.  Might make for a fun theatre trip.

Yeah it is very strange that they left him out of the headline in the press release. He's friggin' Oscar winner for chrissake.

I’m saying that given standard industry practice, it was strange. He is not a star, but he is very well known.

It's good to live in Boston!  (Between this and Gatsby)

Anyone else surprised at this? After the last announcement, that this was in the works, I wasn't expecting it so soon! (But, truth be told, it's possible I hadn't been reading things as carefully as needed!)

I’m actually shocked that one of Chenoweth’s development projects is actually happening! And a new Schwartz score?? Incredibly exciting!

With you on being amazed that this is actually happening. Hopefully this is the camp fest it should be. 


Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

Just watched the documentary... don't see a musical in it, but Cheno will be amazing.

I'm not sure that I would consider Schwartz a particularly campy composer, aside from maybe Godspell.

For those looking to travel during the overlap weekend with Gatsby, I’d suggest: start looking at hotels now. Several big music tours are coming in that week and hotel prices are already pretty high as a result.

This workshop had very mixed reactions.  Several investors left the project after it.  We will see ...

I just don't see this as a musical after watching the documentary and Cheno is nothing like the Jackie Siegel character so don't get it why they chose her but wee shall see?

Tickets went onsale this morning. Pricing is pretty decent, starting at $39 and going to $229 or $294 for "Package Seats". I'm REALLY looking forward to seeing this one this summer and having a few Boston lobster rolls.

Pre-sale has started, for anyone that has limited availiblity to attend.  It's certainly selling, but nothing crazy.  A few dates are listed as "limited" but none as low.  (Opeining night appears to only have made the balcony available for sale.)

Prices range from 40 (rear balcony) to almost 300 (which include a "package".   I got two front row mezz tickets for 315 total, including fees.  (139 base price.)  It's a pretty big place, 1700 seats. 

For anyone interested in the access code (QOV),   ATG for tickets, easily accesible through the shows website.
