It’s still happening this season.

Did you know Ben Jackson Walker before he did &Juliet on Broadway? I wouldn't even call him an up and comer- he's more of a complete unknown before the show. I follow theater very closely and did not know of him before that show. This movie star makes her Broadway debut- who, btw is a POC- and there will always be the person who is complaining. Can't please everyone

Huh? Zegler is not a POC. She's three quarters Polish, smaller amounts of German and Italian on her dad's side. Colombian on her mom's.

Colombian is not an ethnicity (Latino and Hispanic aren't either). It's a nationality at this point thanks to years of colonialism, like most Latin American countries. There are white Colombians who are descendants from the Spaniards. It's a pretty diverse country.

I would love to see Amber Gray's Nurse.

Kit + Rachel with music by Jack Antonoff is a Gen Z wet dream. Regardless of whether they can afford tickets, the buzz around this is going to be insane.

I already saw someone online promising to go live from the stagedoor. For f*cks sake they need to chill. I don't think RZ is all that anyway to be honest but don't go spreading that

If this does go to Circle in the Square, what's happening with Swept Away?  It was the last show rumored to be going there.

Perhaps the last time was in 2013, when Mark Rylance starred in Richard III and Twelfth Night in repertory at the Belasco.

They could be doing a Spring Awakening type approach with contemporary pop songs set into a period text, I suppose?

That can't be. There's no lyricist. Jack Antonoff is just writing music. It could be that this production is "a play with music"


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

Unless they’re setting some Shakespeare to music, which wouldn’t be without precedent.

While I was hoping for the Jamie Lloyd production with Tom Holland, this will be part of my winter trip. 


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

I hope this production is reasonably priced due to solely based on its slogan. If they want to use youg and gen Z theatergoers to come, they better cheap tickets.

Are there any significant differences between Gold and Lloyd's direction in general? They seem to be very similar in terms of directing and the only difference them is one's American while the other's English.

Rachel Zegler in a non-singing Broadway role? Say it ain’t so! I love her voice. Is it possible Jack is writing the lyrics too?
