    Speaking as a huge fan of this show, I think they should have marketed to the family demo


  • Thank you, from American Psycho  May 28 2016, 02:09:32 PM

    More than anything thank you for taking a chance and allowing this bracingly original piece of theater to have existed.

    That's his favorite line.


    something something you're not good enough to be a working artist like me so you're just jealous and whiny.

    Pasquale is one to talk.


    I can't stand his smug attitude.

  • Leona Lewis OFFICIALLY cast as Grizabella  May 26 2016, 11:55:52 AM

    I do love her albums.


    She had that one hit, Bleeding Love, and that was it.


    But she is a great singer and I think she'll be super in this.


    I can't wait to see this production!

    Only You from Starlight Express!


    Yes x100! Good one Wick3.


    Also, There's Me from Starlight Express.

    That's waaaay over AE's head.


    He has the critical faculties of a 6 year old.

  • Did John Doyle save Color  May 25 2016, 05:51:28 AM

    I'm in the minority, but I found Doyle's direction uninspired.


    I'm just thankful he didn't have the actors play instruments.



  • Breaking News: TUCK EVERLASTING to Close This Weekend  May 25 2016, 03:39:46 AM

    darquegk said: "Did they record an album? Because, while I'm sorry for the cast and crew moving on, if the creatives got a record made, it's Mission Accomplished for a little-show-that-could like this one. Record means exposure, Broadway run means legitimacy, they'll get licensed, and TUCK will have a better life out of NYC than it ever could have in.



    Yes. It's out in June digitally, July physically.

  • Riedel on Hamilton not breaking Tony record for wins  May 25 2016, 03:37:22 AM

    He's just repeating everything we already know, and have been saying for a month.


    Actress, set design, choreography, and possibly best actor have always been the categories where Hamilton is not a given.


    I think his "informal poll" is really him reading our thread.

  • Official Kickstarter to get Spring Awakening to perform on the Tonys  May 24 2016, 04:41:01 PM

    So are the producers of the telecast just going to hold onto a very expensive spot in the event that SA makes enough money?

    That seems highly unlikely, which leads me to believe that someone did front the $$ and they already have a spot on the show.

    Ebersole singing Another Winter in a Summer Town

  • Official Kickstarter to get Spring Awakening to perform on the Tonys  May 24 2016, 11:46:17 AM

    Who's gonna pay to see them do a 3 minute number on broadcast TV?


    They should put the $$ towards a cast recording which at least would preserve the show.


    Also, doesn't the producer of the telecast need to make room for them? They can't just be like, "hey we got the money so let us preform". The roster of perfs is probably already set, no?

    Someone needs to check on Jordan and make sure his head didn't explode.

    Oh cool. I also just discovered it's on youtube.


    I like it a lot so far.

  • Hadestown @ New York Theatre Workshop  May 23 2016, 12:33:46 PM

    Can someone describe the score.


    I think it's billed as a "folk-opera".

    and "A Change In Me" would be filmed in my head.



    I agree. I so wanted Home to be in this.


    But I'm still wildly excited for it. Menken did write some new tunes so we will be getting an expanded song list than the original.

  • How Broadway Contributed to Its Own Cell Phone Problem  May 23 2016, 09:09:29 AM

    I'm not entirely sure I appreciate your condescending tone, or the implication that I don't know what I'm talking about


    That's just his default setting. He condescends to everyone.


    That's why I can't be bothered to ever engage with him.
