Jeremy is learning remotely as his cast rehearsals for Broadway in NYC - because he’s got a few concerts on his schedule!

WHAT!!!!!! It's a multi-million-dollar Broadway show and you are the lead....how was this ever approved?

Well they did just do a run at Paper Mill. I can’t imagine they’re changing that much (unfortunately). He’ll be fine.

Oh Mary, calm down.  This happens with actors on EVERY show!

There is no way this wasn’t part of his contract negotiation - calm down.

Jeremy is the best thing about this show.  I hope they make the show fuller, richer, and more melodic.  Do we know if they are replacing any of the big numbers?

We live in a world where Beanie got approval to take the weekend after opening off to attend a wedding. That was egregious. This is not.

Just how many concerts does he have, aka how many actual in-person rehearsals is he missing?

Lea Salonga's initial Broadway rehearsals for Allegiance on Broadway were fully remote from the Phillippines while the rest of the cast was in NYC. Do you take issue with that as well? For context, she had also already performed the show out of town.

The concerts are also basically free publicity for the show. I’m sure he will be doing a Gatsby song.

Besides, he is a genuine Broadway star. He can kinda do what he wants.

Wait, you mean to tell me that someone working on a Broadway show got approved to take a couple days off to perform another show that they had already scheduled before this production was announced??? This is truly stunning. I can't imagine that this has ever happened before in history. This could very well be the end of Broadway.

Between this and the “is Satine really dead?” thread, I truly worry about these boards.

This thread is a valuable reminder that just because someone goes to the theatre a lot, and keeps up with what's going on, does not mean they know how it is made.

The idea is to work and to experiment. Some things will be creatively successful, some things will succeed at the box office, and some things will only - which is the biggest only - teach you things that see the future. And they're probably as valuable as any of your successes. -Harold Prince

it's quite common for an understudy to fill-in during a rehearsal. Who's his u/s?


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Didn’t Kelli O’Hara miss the entire pre-Broadway run of Bridges because she was PREGNANT? The NERVE of these actors. Do they not realise when they become attached to a Broadway-bound show they need to be physically locked up and focus on nothing more than the show???? These entitled actors are…acting…like they might actually be real people. Despicable. 


"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

Jeremy Jordan has been celebrating his 10th anniversary of his first cabaret show at Feinstein's at the Nikko in San Francisco. On Sunday night, the Tony nominee kicked off his soldout, 3-night run with Joe Iconis' ''Broadway, Here I Come!'' from his ''Smash'' TV show. He also teased what he'll be bringing to Broadway soon: ''The Great Gatsby,'' and sang his soaring Act I solo, ''For Her,'' by Jason Howland and Nathan Tysen. Because of this week's concert gigs (he's also playing at the Segerstrom Center in Costa Mesa, Calif., on Feb. 22), Jordan is missing the first N.Y. rehearsals for ''Gatsby,'' but says he's attending via Zoom in the mornings.

Jordan has always had a spectacular voice, but he's grown into such a stellar storyteller. I really enjoyed how he set up his beautifully tender rendition of ''What Was I Made For?,'' Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell's Grammy-winning and Oscar-nominated hit from ''Barbie.''

But the tour de force of the night was Jordan's funny, Reader's Digest re-enactment of ''Newsies,'' in which he played all the characters and sang snippets of all the Tony-winning tunes by Alan Menken and Jack Feldman, while slipping in his quips. To me, he'll always be Jack Kelly, ''Once and for All.'' Bravo!

It's a smart career move to keep other irons in the fire besides Broadway stardom, an ethereal realm that can dissipate as fast as it is conjured.

It’s how it’s done. Actors work on simultaneous projects all the time. I have a close friend who starred on a top rated single-cam network comedy during the week and worked on a Netflix series during the weekend (they filmed around her schedule and saved her scenes for weekend shoots). She also was doing voice work on countless animated projects, too. THAT’S why working actors are tired and exhausted all the time but have long careers. No one works on just one thing. That “you only have one full-time job” mentality exists for the simpletons living basic simple lives.
