  • Riedel on Groundhog Day coming to Broadway  Aug 19 2016, 10:15:20 AM

    His sources are wrong most of the time.


    And Natasha is generating intense buzz.


    Having said that, all three shows are exceptional, and very different.


    it's way to early for any predictions. Karl vs. Groban vs. Platt would be some race though.

  • Worst ALW show  Aug 5 2016, 10:02:44 AM

    Personally I can't stand Phantom.


    I like almost everything ALW has done, but I never took to Phantom. I even like Love Never Dies quite a bit.


    Otherwise only score of his I'm on the fence about is The Likes of Us.



  • Cats or Waitress  Aug 5 2016, 09:46:54 AM

    Waitress was good, not great.


    But I give the edge to Cats. The revival is energized in a way I've never seen for this show before.

    It's exhilarating.

    Nothing that smells

    Nothing that makes noise

    I love Iconis and Golden!


    I was just listening to Violet and wondering why she doesn't get more work.


  • shuffle along cast cd  Jul 19 2016, 06:40:44 AM

    The show was, in my opinion, not nearly as great as everyone says.


    It's an important piece of history worth telling, but the book was a mess. And while it had tons of speechifying about the struggle, somehow that never came through in the action.


    There as a big scene about how putting in the first ever black love song might cause violence and other physical ramifications. Next thing you know they're singing it and we're on to the next scen

    This makes sense. After Eight is basically Grizabella without the introspection.

    Mr. Nowack said: "I didn't know Maltby & Shire were still composing shows honestly!



    Maltby and Shire just had a new show last year. I think it was called Waterfall.


    Last I heard they were hoping for a Bway transfer, but I guess that didn't pan out.

    It's just a silly bit of hyperbole.


    Obviously it's not true.

    ETA: that is a great song.


    I can't wait to see this again!

I thought it was a bizarre, beautiful exercise in tone. The costumes and the lighting were, in particular, excellent. The dancing was fantastic. Not all of the numbers worked for me, for example the train number kind of dragged. Leona Lewis was fine for most of it, but she really sold me when she sa

    This is a little tangential, but a great little read.

    After Eight said: "As for Paramour, I'm glad to see it doing good business. Broadway desperately needs musicals that do not lecture, affront, condescend to or stick it to the audience. May it prosper.


    As does this board, so maybe stop posting.
