    Vernon. Your stress about this is stressing me out. Calm down. Either don't go... or go expecting it to be terrible, which, by all accounts, it will be. Christ.

    Does anyone know if there's any chance this might extend?

    I don't disagree with that assessment about McNally's book, newintown. And I love the movie, which itself is ultimately pretty sentimental, but certainly scruffier. I wouldn’t break my neck mounting a defense of it as a “great” show, but for me, it’s very much a comfort-food show, and I don’t have many of those.

    I agree, Mark. “Scrap” is a pretty acute little psychological dissection. For my money, “Breeze Off the River” is as beautiful and likely to get me teary as “You Walk With Me.” And “Jeanette’s Showbiz Number,” “Life With Harold,” “It’s a Woman’s World,” “Big Black Man,” “Michael Jordan’s Ball,” and “Let It Go” never fail to get me singing, happy, and charged

    Your quibbles are interesting, MarkBearSF. I’ve seen professional, college, and community theater productions of TFM, and no matter the varying levels of questionable talent involved, either onstage, in the pit, or from the creative team, the show always, in my opinion, seems to succeed in spite of them. Because of that, I’ve always seen the show as a foolproof crowd-pleaser, and, though I love the score, I’ve attributed that strength to the book, which admittedly isn’

    I love the show. I love this casting. But that made me LOL.


  • Sweeney Todd Off Broadway Performances  Feb 15 2017, 07:44:56 AM


    Yeah, I'm really hoping to catch it in both iterations. I'm pretty stoked for Carolee, but have always found Norm Lewis to be a paralyzingly boring actor with a great voice, so I'd like to see a Sweeney who can act it first.

    Thank you so much, kreichelt!

    Wait. When is Malloy subbing? I really enjoyed Josh, but I'd love to see Dave one last time.

  • Yen at MCC  Feb 6 2017, 10:41:29 AM


    Thanks, everybody! I don’t see any being offered on the site for the dates I can go (which, unfortunately, hater, are only during the extension). I’ll the theater a call later.

  • Yen at MCC  Feb 6 2017, 09:26:09 AM


    Is there a code for the $30 anniversary tickets, or am I misunderstanding the offer? I can't find any information about it on the website.

  • The craziest audition story EVER  Jan 25 2017, 06:11:45 PM


    I love Dale Soules. You should put her name in the subject line here!


    I’ll always maintain she was robbed of a Tony nom for HANDS ON A HARDBODY.


    Thanks for sharing. It’s a lovely article.

    Does anyone know what the mezz and balcony overhangs are?

    EDIT: I called. For anyone interested, the Dress Circle (mezz) overhangs Orch M, and the Balcony overhangs Dress Circle B/Orch O.

    That "are" was clearly meant to be "aren't." Literally.
