  • HELLO, DOLLY! Previews  Mar 17 2017, 09:24:38 AM

    Auggie27, because the balcony seats were/are the cheapest tickets available, they went first. A friend looked for a single seat in the balcony the other day and the first available date he was given was a Donna Murphy performance in June.

  • HELLO, DOLLY! Previews  Mar 15 2017, 11:17:49 PM

    ljay, do you foresee this being a Tony for Bette?

  • Hello Dolly -Invited Dress Rehearsals-  Mar 12 2017, 12:05:23 PM

    The "star" dressing room at the Shubert just off the stage is fairly small (some shows have used it as a Stage Management office instead.)

    As others have speculated, I assume the secondary dressing room for Midler on the second floor will double as a green room for her guests and also give her more space to sprawl out between shows, etc.

  • FROZEN to Officially Hit Broadway  Mar 2 2017, 11:09:39 AM

    There's not much to say about what happened here.

    Alex Timbers cast a group of actors who did a developmental lab of the show. He had scheduled another reading using largely the same actors. In the interim, he was let go and Michael Grandage was hired. Out of courtesy, Grandage used the actors put in place by Timbers (including Wolfe and Murin) for the already-scheduled reading. After that reading took place, everyone had to re-audition for the lab happening next month. Patti M

  • London's Dreamgirls is eyeing Broadway  Jan 23 2017, 04:37:15 PM

    As far as casting goes, the girl playing Deena in the West End (Liisi LaFontaine) is American. I imagine she'll be brought over to open the show in NY along with Amber Riley.

    Marisha Wallace, Riley's alternate, is also American.

  • London's Dreamgirls is eyeing Broadway  Jan 17 2017, 11:39:35 PM

    The Savoy in London is a three-tiered space with 1,150 seats. Of the houses in the Shubert portfolio, its closest contemporaries would be the Broadhurst (with 1,156 seats) the Jacobs (with 1,078 seats,) and the Schoenfeld (with 1,079 seats.)

    I've heard they're shooting to come in at the beginning of 2018. Casey Nicholaw opens MEAN GIRLS out of town in DC this October so the most logical thing would be for them to begin rehearsals immediately thereafter before he will presumably

  • Patty and Emily Closing  Dec 20 2016, 10:04:27 AM

    A falling out is really the only thing that would explain them ending things so abruptly.

    I'm sad to see them go, but the writing's been on the wall that something was going on for a while. They stopped making video content all together after the Tonys this summer, which used to be the foundation of their brand. They kept up the podcast after that (which I loved,) but there would be weird times that didn't seem planned where they'd miss epi

  • Arden Directing 'Merrily' in LA  Dec 4 2016, 04:12:27 PM


  • Arden Directing 'Merrily' in LA  Dec 4 2016, 04:11:19 PM

    There's a feature on Arden in the LA Times where he says he wanted to cast different actors to play each lead role in each time period but Sondheim wouldn't allow it because George Furth always intended for them to be played by one actor throughout the show. It sounds like this "shadow selves" idea was his attempt at a compromise.

    The first review is out in The Wrap and it's mixed to negative.

    Sunset Boulevard cast  Nov 13 2016, 08:08:05 PM

    If Glenn announced it, perhaps she stipulated that they transfer with her if she felt confident in the work they had already done together.

    Even so, Equity should have said no.

  • Sunset Boulevard cast  Nov 13 2016, 07:52:53 PM

    Why would American Equity allow this? These are roles that easily could (and should) be played by American actors.


    The interview portion of the podcast was recorded over a year ago when Aubrey filmed her guest judge appearance on Drag Race.

    She did a reading of A FUNNY THING HAPPENED... with MCC but ultimately (as we all know) did not move forward with the full production.

  • FALSETTOS Previews  Oct 12 2016, 08:39:00 PM

    Has anyone used their LincTix yet? I know they check ID to verify the age for the member whose name the tickets are under, but because they're allowing one person to buy two tickets for this production, are they also checking ID to verify the age of the member's guest?

  • Jenna Ushkowitz to Step in for Kimiko Glenn in WAITRESS  Oct 5 2016, 07:58:33 PM

    I've heard Jenna Ushkowitz is leaving the show later this month to head back to LA but that Kimiko Glenn will not be returning.

  • Paula Vogel's INDECENT to Broadway?  Aug 25 2016, 10:55:10 PM

    Much like Vogel, it's equally as astonishing that Lynn Nottage has yet to be represented on Broadway either. RUINED not transferring after its staggering and continuously extended run at MTC remains a mystery (something I know Nottage herself has also expressed frustration with.)

    Further proof that female writers are still sorely lacking in support when it comes to commercial theater.

  • HAMILTON Principal Cast Replacements  Aug 15 2016, 12:58:07 PM

    Not sure who your friend saw, neonlightsxo, but it was definitely not Brandon. He doesn't go into the show until next week.

    That linked Instagram post from Sasha Hutchings was referring to the fact that this is the second show she's done with Brandon, not the second performance of HAMILTON she's done with him.

  • Mandy Gonzalez to Join HAMILTON on Broadway  Aug 1 2016, 09:13:15 AM

    She will succeed Renee Goldsberry as Angelica in October. Josh Henry will play Burr in Chicago.

  • And the 2016 Hollywood Bowl Summer Musical Is...???  Jul 31 2016, 03:25:03 PM

    Did they add in bows at the very end separate from the finale for this?

    Doesn't that go against the entire message of the finale, where these people you've spent the whole evening getting to know blend back into the chorus?

  • MY FAIR LADY Revival Back On For Next Spring?  Jul 23 2016, 01:42:00 PM

    broadwayguy91, anyone who belts as high as Erivo does has a legit soprano voice.

  • MY FAIR LADY Revival Back On For Next Spring?  Jul 23 2016, 11:25:45 AM

    Cynthia Erivo would be an inspired and incredible choice for Eliza.
