  • Bette's Dolly Cast Uninspired?  Sep 20 2016, 02:23:33 AM

    It also seems very un-PC to actually say, when referring to non-traditonal casting, that the POC actor is playing WHITE.  They have not changed a character that, given said character's time, opportunities, and relationships, would be anything other than white (Audra's Lizzie in "110 in the Shade" comes to mind). But that rarely comes up when people defend color-blind casting.  But it's all pretend, so why not say it?

  • WALTER KERR box office  Sep 15 2016, 09:42:18 AM

    Thank you.

  • WALTER KERR box office  Sep 15 2016, 08:13:46 AM

    Is the Walter Kerr box office open until 8pm today, or does it close at 5 until Falsettos starts previews?

  • A Taste of Honey  Sep 14 2016, 01:55:44 PM

    I saw the recent London revival at the National and found it compelling, but what blew me away was the subject matter and the age of the (FEMALE!!) playwright when she wrote it (18!!!).

  • Falsettos Discount Code  Sep 14 2016, 01:53:08 PM

    Yes, thank you!

  • Falsettos Discount Code  Sep 13 2016, 04:56:39 AM

    I'm really surprised there isn't one, it isn't selling particularly well (at least as well as say Evan Hanson).

  • London Road US release?  Sep 9 2016, 10:47:33 PM

    Saw it this morning. Might be my favorite movie of the year so far.

  • Lion King: is it getting worse?  Sep 1 2016, 11:56:13 AM

    The biggest problem with Lion King is that it never gets better than that opening number (which mad me cry uncontrollably for reasons I'm still not sure.  But there is a beauty to what is happening around you mixed with the beauty of that song).

  • MAME REVIVAL!!!  Aug 28 2016, 05:25:47 PM

    DottieD'Luscia said: "@Jarethan, Harriett Harris played Vera.  I blocked her out, too!

    I saw that production and actually thought the roles should have been reversed. I thought Harriet Harris would have been an imperfect but in-her-own-way delightful Mame and Baranski ideal as Vera.




  • MAME REVIVAL!!!  Aug 18 2016, 08:28:14 PM

    What makes Mame such a wonderful character (and difficult) is that she is this mixture of privileged pretension and extreme heart. Roz is perfection in the film, and I'm sure Lansbury was in the musical. But to find that combination I have to go with Jane Krakowski. She has demonstrated again and again that she has the right delivery and persona to make a wonderful Mame. And though perfect, her casting would also seem "out of the box".

    Songanddnaceman2 is a liar. Not that he knows he's lying, He's a fabulist. But he doesn't know he's a fabulist.  His delusions appear in the form that he completely believes his world view and his alone is reality. 





  • Is A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC coming back?  Aug 5 2016, 09:21:03 PM

    icecreambenjamin,  the Theatre Du Chatelet "Night Music" was one of the best, if not THE best productions of the show I'd ever seen. The director (who was not as successful with "Sunday" a couple years ago) had some marvelous ideas.  Breathtaking at times, well sung (except for Leslie Caron, who was excellent star casting, but not terrible persuasive in the role of Madame Armfeldt).

  • CYNTHIA ERIVO as Susannah in "The Dark Tower"  Jul 26 2016, 11:48:58 AM

    They are filming the first installment of the Stephen King masterwork as we speak and we have to find out if it's a hit before they make the second film (which introduces Eddie and Susannah). But she would be SO perfectly cast, I think it's time to start a hashtag campaign to see that this happens!!


  • Burn This on Broadway Spring '17  Jul 16 2016, 03:14:21 PM

    Along with Edward Norton the Signature revival had Catherine Keener as Anna and the supporting men were then unknowns Ty Burrell and Dallas Roberts. 

    Malkovitch was amazing but I've never been a big fan of Joan Allen onstage. A somewhat passive actress in a very passive role.  But I loved Keener and Norton put such a unique personal spin on Pale it was almost like a new show. A show I preferred.

    Yeah, but listen to that orchestra....

  • BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE IN TEXAS Coming to Broadway; Rob Ashford to Direct!  Jul 6 2016, 08:36:22 PM

    I'm surprised no one is reacting to the fact that Kevin McKidd is playing Ed Earl Dodd.  Ed Earl in the play is not Burt Reynolds. He's a much older man and Ms Mona has been "seeing" him off and on since she herself was a teenage hooker. She's in love with him and the play builds to a gorgeous scene where she asks him where he was when Kennedy was shot.  She knows, she was with him. But Ed Earl has an old man's memory, he remembers something completely diff

  • The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?  Jul 5 2016, 03:53:33 PM

    It had the audacity of a playwright a quarter his age. It's themes of "we can't control our sexual urges, why should we be punished for who or what arouses us" don't completely land, but it was still thought provoking and surprising. I saw this on Broadway and then again in London with a pre-star Eddie Redmayne as the son and Jonathan Pryce, improving on Bill Pullman (it could have only been Pryce not being forced to go head to head with the blistering Mercedes Rheul giv

  • Jace Alexander arrested  Jul 3 2016, 03:26:26 PM

    He got ten years.

    Along with "Assassins" he was on B'way in "Six Degrees of Separation" and "I'm Not Rappaport".
