Jay Lerner-Z said: "A federally funded “national theatre” would be the perfect fit for a show like this. Education being the priority, not entertainment or profit. Buses of school kids brought in at a doable group rate to help them understand. A public service.

Ashley Wool is right.

Please tell me school groups are still coming to Broadway/Off-Broadway shows?? They still do that right??

The show lasted longer than Dr Zhivago, so there’s that.

Of course they do . 


If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Last March when I was in NYC there was a Wednesday matinee of Kimberly Akimbo that was completely sold out, and when I passed the theatre that afternoon on my way to Parade it looked like it was all school groups lined up to get into the Booth.

I think any type of theatre majority-funded by the government could be disastrous from an artistic angle. Everything would be hyperscrutinized. There'd be protests about everything from "wokeness" to trans characters to Critical Race Theory/slavery to sexual content & language.

Personality and uniqueness would be shaved down and the result would be boringly safe works.

The most generous of Federal grants like the NEA typically cover less than 5% of an annual budget.

Yes.

Broadway Bridges (a League program) aims to make sure every 10th grader in the NYC public schools sees a Broadway show, and the tickets are priced at just $10.

There is also a Head of Theatre for the NYC public schools' arts department who works with producers and others to secure tickets and guest artists and the like.

There are nonprofits and foundations that support and subsidize student tickets within NYC and beyond, group sales agents who cut deals with producers for student groups to attend, and all the major nonprofit theatres have educational arms that do outreach work in-classroom and in conjunction with shows.

^this. 100%.

i can confirm first-hand that GQP congresspeople have staffers scrutinizing every single grant the NEA and the NEH make for exactly this nonsense.

Based on the Broadway run, do you think it will?

Seems doubtful but then again "Diana" ended up on Netflix and Ohio's producer had tweeted that they wanted tour to happen.

Wow, this whole weekend is now sold out. Guess the closing announcement has everyone rushing to see it--too bad I couldn't snag a ticket in time.

They're not having much effect if you look at what's being funded.

I mean, a pandemic hampered Diana from its original opening and they filmed it hoping to have it seen by the public in case they didn’t and/or drum up interest in the show.

Its not a legitimate comparison to Ohio.

There are colossal differences between DIANA and OHIO.

- DIANA was lead produced by Frank Marshall (a close collaborator of Spielberg and husband to Lucasfilm's Kathy Kennedy) who had an existing relationship with Netflix
- it was about one of the most famous people of the last 40 years
- Netflix is already in the Royals business with The Crown and they could easily promote it as "if you liked The Crown", check this out!"
- there was a need for content due to the pandemic
- Netflix was more freewheeling with its spending then vs now.

Ohio will be lucky if it gets a Lincoln Center archival recording.

A solid four-star review from a visiting Brit, with constructive criticism. See, it wasn't all bad.

The show’s Instagram page went live for the final curtain call.

Speeches by Ben, Sammy, and Fiona of P3 Productions. Might not end up happening, but they said there is a future for this show - “We’ll keep you posted.”

Imani Russell concluded with a statement on behalf of the show’s autistic community. 


Oh look, a bibu!

It could do well regionally, I suppose

They are looking at a London production apparently.

 

Also did Ludacris ever actually end up seeing the show?

Well, he was at the Super Bowl instead of closing night, so...
