  • ON YOUR FEET Cast Recording  Apr 29 2016, 11:03:45 PM

    This will definitely tour successfully.  Hopefully Ana Villafañe does a few stops in the tour.  She's something to witness.  It's obvious the tour will premiere in Miami and most likely she'll open the tour like most lead actors have been doing for some time now.

  • Hamilton to be filmed?  Apr 28 2016, 09:27:20 AM

    Due to its insane cultural obnoxiousness, HAMILTON will indeed be filmed properly.  Yes, it's safe to assume Groff will return to preserve his performance and to have the original principal Broadway cast.  Will this see the light of day any time soon?  Absolutely not.  They will hold this until they're damn ready to show it.  They're just being smart to do this now instead of gathering the cast 5-10 years down the road to do what they can easily do ri

  • Martin Short & Derek Hough Join Cast of NBC's HAIRSPRAY LIVE!  Apr 27 2016, 02:49:09 PM

    He doesn't carry the show and only has a few short scenes.  The longest stage time he has it at the end of the show.  Hough is a disciplined dancer who choreographs and dances several dances in 4-5 days during his run on DANCING WITH THE STARS.  He's more than capable of beginning Day 1 of rehearsals already off-book, learn his choreography (which I'm sure will be expanded for him) in a day and leave the rest of the time to rehearse and learn his camera blockin

  • Martin Short & Derek Hough Join Cast of NBC's HAIRSPRAY LIVE!  Apr 27 2016, 02:42:23 PM

    Hough is only playing Corny Collins so it's basically a bit part.  He can perfectly learn his material, camera blocking and choreography in less than a week.  He can easily do all of this while still rehearsing SINGIN' IN THE RAIN. 


  • HAIRSPRAY LIVE! will have live audience and new songs!  Apr 26 2016, 09:21:58 PM

    Like FOX did with GREASE: Live!, NBC will be broadcasting HAIRSPRAY: Live! from Universal Studios so they'll be incorporating outdoor and soundstage locations unlike their past broadcasts which were all done  from one single indoor soundstage.  This time around, they'll be incorporating the audience as extras in scenes unlike GREASE: Live! which used the audience as spectators in certain scenes. 

  • HAIRSPRAY LIVE! will have live audience and new songs!  Apr 26 2016, 03:46:02 PM

    The broadcast may be 3 hours but there are commercial breaks which brings the actual program airtime to roughly 2 hours and 15 minutes for a 3 hour broadcast. 

  • HAIRSPRAY LIVE! will have live audience and new songs!  Apr 26 2016, 12:47:50 PM

    The "new" songs being considered are the more than a handful of trunk songs that were written for the musical but never used.  These songs can be heard on the 2-disc Deluxe Soundtrack for the film version of HAIRSPRAY.   

  • Fierstein, Hudson Stars in HAIRSPRAY LIVE!  Apr 25 2016, 01:48:50 PM

    All these dream casting ideas are delicious but you all DO have to take in consideration the several months commitment required just for a one-night performance.  I believe they begin rehearsals in late August for that early December broadcast.  That's about a 4 month commitment.   GREASE Live! did this as well.  Many performers approached would love to take part in these live musicals but sadly, don't have the free time available to commit to the several months of

  • Joel Grey to discuss and sign memoir at Drama Book Shop tomorrow...  Apr 25 2016, 11:54:36 AM

    The main focus of his memoir seems to be about his personal struggles (his sexuality, etc).  Sadly, I only really care is about his career anecdotes: the creation of CABARET in the mid-60s; Bob Fosse heavily adapting/modifying his Emcee from the stage CABARET for the film CABARET; plus other career gems.  I genuinely am not interested in hearing or reading about anything else that tons of others have written about.  Same story; different person.

  • Opening night attire for Waitress  Apr 24 2016, 03:30:13 PM

    Opening Night on Broadway is the same as a regular performance so adhere to the performance time.  It's not a live broadcast awards show where you need to be there early as the doors are locked about 30 minutes before the live broadcast. 


    As for the red carpet/step & repeat backdrop, it's outside on the sidewalk.  The press is lined-up outside the curb/sidewalk so if you want to watch the arrivals, you can from across the street as you'

  • Transportation for the actors?  Apr 23 2016, 07:29:01 PM

    Personal car service for principal Broadway actors has always existed.  In 1964 Barbra Streisand negotiated unsuccessfully to have limousine service during her run in FUNNY GIRL.  The producers only agreed to taxi service.  They also refused her request for her meals to be included on her contract.

    That's right - Mary Martin and Janet Gaynor were longtime buddies.  Even their husband were buddies.  The couples traveled and we're always seen together.

  • Lansbury To Host MAME 50th Anniversary Reunion  Apr 22 2016, 04:38:14 PM

    A reunion?   She's the only surviving principal cast member!  Frankie Michaels passed away recently so she's outlived Patrick.  I guess it'll just be Jerry Herman and Lansbury singing duets all night?  

  • In the Heights Film Adaptation????  Apr 19 2016, 12:07:32 AM

    Sadly, as the film adaptation was to begin pre-production in 2011, Universal Pictures pulled the plug on it.  Kenny Ortega was set to direct it.  Miranda hopes to eventually make a film adaptation but it won't be happening anytime in the near future.

  • Actors who were fired from/left roles  Apr 18 2016, 12:28:45 PM

    The original Annie: Kristen Vigard was replaced a few days into performances during the out-of-town tryout of ANNIE.  She was quickly replaced by Andrea McArdle, who was playing Pepper in the orphan ensemble.  Vigard would later become McArdle's standby when the show arrived on Broadway.
