So the difference here is that this info is... about a medical topic? Which is not forbidden content on these boards?"

Yes. Exactly. Bingo. 

Speculating and gossiping about which show is closing, which theater is being booked, which actor is leaving/joining a show, is universes away from speculating and gossiping about someone's HEALTH. 

If someone is just sharing information that the actor publicized elsewhere, thats fine, but to spread that any given actor might have any given illness/issue, is crude and childish. Its hilarious that the moderators allow it while shutting down any mention of other topics; I maintain the BroadwayWorld legal counsel is a golden retriever.

But all of the actors are open on their IG about having COVID, so how are they keeping it private?


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.

I agree that it's not great to say, "so and so definitively has COVID" if not confirmed. That said, I find it hard to quantify any real harm from it other than distaste in reading something potentially uncouth. I'm curious if you would take similar issue to someone saying, "so and so was out amidst a widespread COVID scare, so COVID seems likely?"

If so, I'll agree to disagree. You have every right to not like it, but I think this sort of discussion is well within scope – this is not speculation on someone's health in a vacuum, but rather as to the reason for a performer's recorded absence from a show.

I'd also understand more if there were some sort of moral assessment that came with having COVID (ex: "this person has COVID, and thus we judge them" ) – the same as calling someone a slur, etc. But this is not the case.

All this is to say, I agree we should be careful about making unconfirmed definitive statements about someone's health – but only insofar as we should be careful about making any unconfirmed definitive statements. I don't really grasp why the health topic makes a difference in the context of an online rumors message board.

if the actor posts their private information on social media, its no longer private, share away.

if not, youre sharing personal information that under normal circumstances is simply should not be publicized by strangers to strangers--i dont care it its strep throat, COVID or cancer. its just gross to spread this kinda information, not to mention legally actionable in some circumstances. 

again, if someone is just restating what an actor already shared, have at it. otherwise- yikes people are crass.

I hope Nick Fradiani gets bumped up full-time if he plans to stay with the show.

Nick Fradiani will take over the role full-time beginning Oct. 31. No word if Nick will be doing 8 shows/week and who the new standby is.

Nick himself posted that he'll be doing all 8 shows/week. But they still need to hire a new standby.

Nick on live on Z100 Thursday morning. The biggest pop radio station in the country.

Whoever is doing the PR for this show is hitting all the right notes. 

So smart to have him pull out a guitar and sing 'Sweet Caroline.'

Curious to see how many appearances Nick makes on the talk shows once he starts [full-time] in the three weeks.

Well I have to hand it to producer Ken Davenport who had the savvy to add more matinees. By doing this he made it from a show that is breaking even to a show that is making money. Kudos to Ken for this move.

End of act one : Thursday matinee. I’m the youngest person here at age 55. I’m also I think the only person who is not it seems Jewish or from New Jersey. Nick Fradiani is on as Neil. One thing I will say is this show is afraid of silence every moment is filled with dancers , back up singers , ensemble members doing something. Moments that should soar are filled with distractions. So far it not A Beautiful Noise. 


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

Did you check ID's at the door?

There are some quiet moments in the show and it doesn't really stay as "busy" as you describe it. But that ensemble puts in some work! Sorry you don't seem to like the show but evidently a lot of others find it to be A Beautiful Noise. And they get a lot of repeat business.

Uncageg you’ll be very happy to know that during act two it found its silence during “You Don’t Send Me Flowers” and “ I am I said “ that allowed the show to soar. I am a huge Neil Diamond fan and should be the audience for this, for me it just didn’t work.  Really happy that it has found an audience and repeat ones as well. I wanted more, and for me that failed to let Diamond’s songs shine.

Act 2 has several "quiet" moments. Act 1 has several "serious" moments. Act 2 is definitely much stronger than Act 1.

In case you couldn't figure it out, the ensemble works as "The Beautiful Noise" or as Neil's memories of his music. The ensemble works their butts off in this show

I'm glad everyone was wearing stickers stating their name, religion, and home state.

Also, hearing that Robyn Hurder is also leaving the show, possibly the same day as Will Swenson.

That doesn't surprise me at all. She seems to have been hinting at a new project for a while now. But I'm surprised that the show hasn't announced this yet. 

I'm also curious if Nick will stick with the 8 shows/week schedule. Will has been very open about how difficult this show is on his voice. I think Neil-then sings 23 songs throughout.

Yeah, I'm sad to see Robyn leave(if she is). Her cryptic IG stories appear that she is leaving soon.

 

It also appears that several ensemble members are leaving soon as well. The show will be coming up on a year run (since previews) this November.
