  • Musicals with better 2nd acts  Feb 8 2014, 10:58:32 AM
    Pippin- although I adore the show as a hole I find Act 2 to be less entertaining than Act 1. The songs and musical numbers are better and the ordinary life segment can get really draggy in act 2.
  • SJP & Commons of Pensacola  Jan 9 2014, 12:05:11 AM
    I'm a huge fan of SJP and I'm attending The Commons of Pensacola. I'm going to see the play specifically because of her starring in it. My question is since its not playing on Broadway, does Sarah come out the stage door and sign autographs and possibly take a picture?
  • Rocky the Musical?  Oct 29 2013, 07:57:16 AM
    How about;the musical side of Rocky???
  • Prince of Broadway happening this Fall??  Aug 5 2013, 11:11:57 AM
    Looked on and it indicates that Prince of Broadway will be opening this fall 2013. Any information as to whether this coming or not??
  • Favorite/least favorite Broadway Theater  Aug 3 2013, 05:22:01 PM
    I would say my least favorite would be the Lyceum and my favorites are the Broadway, Majestic, Imperial,

  • SIDE SHOW Broadway Revival  Jul 10 2013, 07:31:13 PM
    Count me in the I love Side Show group. In my opinion it was definitely one of the best original new musicals of the 1990's. I personally adore the score for its mix of gorgeous ballads and catchy old fashioned show tunes. I can't think of another new musical since that had such a strong "traditional score". As for the story and theme I really don't understand what's so "uncomfortable" or "disturbing" about it? Granted, it's not Mamma Mia, but there have been many successful musicals on Broadway
  • Possibly Controversial Idea: Lady Gaga as Fanny Brice?  Jun 29 2013, 06:05:59 PM
    I totally agree. I'd be first in line. She would be an amazing Fanny indeed.
  • Pippin Closing Jan 5???  Jun 29 2013, 05:36:36 PM
    Okay, I really meant that I thought that closing on Jan 5,2015 would be more like it. My bad. I am all over the place. After all, I have ADHD and I'm a recovering Crystal Meth addict so please cut me some slack.

  • Pippin Closing Jan 5???  Jun 29 2013, 04:15:40 PM
    To all the know it alls on this board, I'm very much aware that shows sell tickets in blocks of time periods. My point was that they listed it as if it was closing on Jan 5.
  • Pippin Closing Jan 5???  Jun 29 2013, 03:31:28 PM
    Sorry, I meant Jan 5. If u notice on my thread title it says Jan5. I think Jan 5 is still way too early for them to close. Afterall it's selling out every week and won several major Tonys including best musical revival. I was expecting this to run at least until Jan 5, 2014.
  • Pippin Closing Jan 5???  Jun 29 2013, 03:20:29 PM
    According to Time Out NY magazine it states that Pippin runs through Sept. 5. I was under the impression that since its doing well both financially and award wise it would enjoy a healthy run. It seems that a Sept 5 closing would be extreemely premature for such a successful production.

  • Scores That didn't Have One Single Bad Song In It?  Jun 7 2013, 01:50:09 PM
    Les Mis and La Cage
  • Angela Lansbury said she has 2 plays currently in production. Any idea what it might be?  Jun 7 2013, 12:21:22 PM
    Retirement, I hope.
  • Tony Awards Attire  Jun 3 2013, 11:27:03 AM
    Okay thanks. I was fine with the suit in 2010. But when I read the black tie only on the ticket it kinda threw me off.
  • Tony Awards Attire  Jun 3 2013, 11:22:34 AM
    I will be attending the TONYS on Sunday and on my ticket it states Black Tie Only.The last time I attended in 2010, I wore a suit. I was planning on wearing a suit again. Will that be acceptable or must I wear a tuxedo? Any clarification on this matter will be greatly appreciated.
  • Musical masterpieces  Jun 3 2013, 10:40:24 AM
    Les Mis. I can't believe no one has mentioned Les Mis. To me, Les Mis is the closest a musical gets to a masterpiece. An amazing score, an epic story that has a little bit of everything and many different themes and messages.
  • Bette Midler as Dolly  May 21 2013, 03:44:07 PM
    Bernadette Peters. How come no one has mentioned Ms. Peters?? I feel like the role of Dolly was made for her. She is more of a Dolly than a Sally, Desiree, or Rose for that matter. Her last three Broadway roles did not suite her talents at all but I feel Dolly would be a perfect fir for her.
  • Happy Birthday Cher..  May 20 2013, 12:50:23 PM
    Happy Birthday, to Cher. Here's to wising and hoping that her new musical about her life starring the diva herself comes to life on Broadway some time soon. Broadway can definitely use a dose of this magnificent legend..
