Per Constantine's Instagram video (though he does bury the lede a bit). Plans for a national tour and possible Broadway run are in the works.

Never one to shy away from self promotion, Constantine posted last week that he was headlining an Oktoberfest Labor Day weekend in Colorado and I thought, wouldn't he have a show to do? Guess not. 

Is this a limited engagement ending earlier than planned or was it open ended?

It’s possible he could have just taken a few shows off and Chase Peacock would’ve gone on as his U/S. I don’t know what the original closing date was, but I know they advertised an “extension” through November 5. But I didn’t think it was going to be long since the crowds are HEAVILY papered

According to the Briefing, this is set to close September 1st with a national tour supposedly in the works.........

 

Color me skeptical of a tour of this doing well

A Broadway run when they papered what I would assume to be every single performance? Sure, Jan.

A tour would be one thing, especially if it's non-Equity, split-weeks, or more of a "regional tour."

Broadway would be laughable after this limped its way Off-Bway and papered almost every single night.

I just think commercial off-Broadway is dead. I mean, Stomp closed. I would have thought Kinky Boots would have been a runway hit off-Broadway but that crashed and burned.

Just wait -- it will run on Broadway (in rep) with In My Life and Gettin' the Band Back Together!

Broadway Run? They need to focus on getting a smaller Off-Broadway house. I enjoyed the show but it needs a smaller space. Which will allow it to have a fruitful run. I can see the show being a success on the road but not having much success on Broadway. But hey anyone can dream.


There is nothing in the world better than Live Theater.

It has an audience. The elder clientele love the show and remember the music and nostalgia behind it.

LITTLE SHOP and TITANIQUE might be proving otherwise (one more so than the other).

Think it’s always a matter of doing shows that people legitimately want to see. I assume LSOH can move any day-of inventory with TKTS and lotto/rush, and it has a brand attached to it that some of these other shows will never have. Probably does a good group sales business too.

The Rock & Roll Man audience is probably very similar to BEAUTIFUL NOISE — but BN has plenty of inventory available so counterprogramming doesn’t really work.

Yes, but it also includes a slew of original songs.


Oh look, a bibu!

Valid point. I think Little Shop was smart with their producing. They plug in "names" for the roles here and there to reinvest interest in the show and have returning customers. It's an easy enough show vocally for a broad range of talent. 

Titanque is smart in its show times where it allows you to see other shows and still plug it in.

Finally saw this. It has no business ever being on Broadway, let alone on the island of Manhattan. Maybe a dinner theatre somewhere. 
A talented cast (as is so often the case) but I’m not sure how they perform that book with a straight face. Teenagers being played by late-30s may work in a large house, but not in this tiny former cinema.
 

Constantine is all wrong for the lead. He has a natural darkness/sinister shade, which doesn’t get erased at all when he puts on the “I just wanna let the kids have fun! I didn’t know what I was doing!” coat. And the two dirtiest jokes made by the oldest guy in the cast? What possessed them?
The ice cream licking bit went on way too long. Maybe they’ve given up hope and are just having fun now. 
 

Worst wigs in the tri-state area. If the face is the main thing we look at, everything around it had better not distract us for the wrong reasons.

Apparently this show has been trying to make it for many years. Maybe this run will get them to take the hint.

It has some major Caiola producing money behind it so that wouldn't surprise me

Wow. I was entertained and learned something too. I have been more than once and the audiences seem to love it.

Sorry you didn't like the wigs LOL
