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
2014, 01:05:36 PM 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.

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.

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.
