In today's climate MARY POPPINS would be controversial.

I agree with those dissenting about the selection from FUN HOME. It was a very weak choice. If you can only do a slice from that show it was the wrong slice.

Seeing this on Thursday night. Really looking forward to it!

The only truth in an opinion, Long After Eight, is that it is yours.
- Anyone else have a problem with the ending of Into the woods? Its pretty morally disgusting Jan 5
2015, 12:02:23 PM
The OP's commentary stipulates that revenge killing is NOT morally disgusting. I disagree. And yes, the show is explicitly asking questions about relativism, moral and otherwise.

I love this woman -- such a gifted and unique performer. Sad to hear the news, but what a life!

Can you post a photo of it? I'm interested.
- Why aren't there more horror-themed plays on Broadway? Sep 20
2014, 08:57:17 PM
Horror films are a primary reason that Le Theatre Grand Guignol lost its lustre, but it did work for a very long time. I think it can work again, so get busy Jordan. And make no mistake -- seeing blood running live on stage IS very unsettling.
- First show seen on broadway? Sep 16

APPLAUSE with Lauren Bacall. (She was on stage... I didn't see it 'with' her unfortunately.) I don't remember it at all, though -- I was too young. The first shows I actually remember were PACIFIC OVERTURES and SHENANDOAH.

Tobias, you really think it's important the gender and ethnicity of a playwright? You realize that's both sexist and racist, right?

Pretty sure that was my favorite of the 'dumps' thus far.

...and now I have to reconsider by long held stance about not liking children. A DORA BELL.

LONDON ROAD and LONDON ROAD and LONDON ROAD. (Not a revival, of course, but the thread headline doesn't specify revivals.)
- OFFICIAL: Elaine Stritch has passed Jul 19
2014, 03:58:33 AM
My reaction to her leaving us is so rare for me -- a little loss, yes, but the strong feeling that she did exactly what she came here to do and didn't need a drop more. I'm filled with a sense of BRAVA! more than mourning. A life fully lived is such a beautiful thing.

With nine thousand dollar standing room, this isn't too surprising.

I'd fly to NY for PINK.

I genuinely dislike the Garage Band orchestrations. Lordy.
- HBO's 'The Normal Heart': Your Thoughts May 26
2014, 07:22:15 PM
I came out exactly then and exactly there and this film devastated me for many reasons. I love a good cry -- I'm good for the next couple of years now.
- Why is Wicked that popular? Apr 30
2014, 06:11:51 PM
I think sometimes things that 'should' be fantastic are considered so in order to avoid the disappointment.
- Valerie Harper sued by Lombardo and producers... Apr 30
2014, 06:09:31 PM
One of Lombardo's claims would almost (I said almost) justify his countersuit; specifically that "she intentionally failed to notify them in 2012 that her cancer had returned with a vengeance ... all in a sinister plot to keep her job." Still... leave a possibly dying woman alone and keep your rage to phone calls with your friends. Or post here.
