  • George Takei in Doyle's PACIFIC OVERTURES  Jul 15 2016, 04:03:44 PM

    For what it's worth, they haven't even started booking subscribers yet; an e-mail went out a few days ago saying that'd be happening soon. So it'll probably be a bit before non-subscriber tickets go on sale. 

    Peer Gynt was weird and I loved it.

  • George Takei in Doyle's PACIFIC OVERTURES  Jul 15 2016, 12:13:44 PM

    I was not saying that's the only and/or best way to do it. Just that I think it works. You could absolutely go either way. 

  • Company at The Writers Theater  Jul 15 2016, 12:08:41 PM

    I'm seeing it in a few weeks. I've seen some positive comments about it on Facebook, but a lot of them are by people who have friends in the cast, and it's hard to tell what's honest and what's just customary "my friends are killing it" praise. 

    I had initially been really excited about it because I love the show and the cast is off the hook, but I developed a lot of reservations once I read that it's touching on the suicide theory. I decided to g

  • George Takei in Doyle's PACIFIC OVERTURES  Jul 15 2016, 12:05:12 PM

    If I remember correctly, the Roundabout production in '04 (?) was pretty stripped down, wasn't it? It seems like a show that just does well when not very elaborate, so I doubt whatever John is going to do with it will be radically upsetting, even to his detractors. 

    Also, on some level, almost everything Sondheim writes is about people not connecting with each other. So ok, you may hate the "walking patterns," as a way of showing that, but I do think one of

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 14 2016, 01:31:00 PM

    Probably also at me. And my response has nothing to do with Raul specifically, it's just to ask why, in any context, one person's (singular?) experience of someone should negate someone else's? People are complicated; why should an actor be exempt from that? Look, you can dig back through a decade-plus of my verbal vomit on this thing and find piles of posts in which I, during my fangirl days, monologue with stars in my eyes. I don't think those accounts, by me or anyone

  • George Takei in Doyle's PACIFIC OVERTURES  Jul 14 2016, 01:00:21 PM

    I'm so excited. 

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 12 2016, 01:24:51 PM

    An actor who's emotional? Oh no, what will they think of next? :)

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 12 2016, 01:10:53 PM

    Thing is, people who know Raul can march in here and say he's good people and nobody's gonna believe them because in this environment chances are they also like the work. And the gossip-mongers are gonna hang onto that ten-year-old moment in time and say "but wait, there's more!" because that's just more fun.

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 11 2016, 04:20:34 PM

    Also lol at the assessment that nobody gave a **** about him being in Cymbeline. I was going to say "well, I flew home and moved other travel plans around to be there" and leave it at that, but I'm terrible sample case. However, speaking of TV and all that, there were LOTS of people who traveled to NYC to see him who had never seen him on stage before. And I bet a lot of them could have given two ****s less about Shakespeare, or theatre, period, really, but they all went to see

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 11 2016, 04:06:24 PM

    Oh, so I did wake up in 2005!

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 11 2016, 12:59:55 PM

    I remember thinking the review of Leap of Faith was surprising, give that Brantley is usually pretty into Raul's performances. I thought it was harsh because to me, it seemed like he was trying to take back what he had said previously in response to one performance that wasn't, he felt, on the same level. 

    I think people might be forgetting that the SVU gig came directly out of Leap of Faith. Not necessarily of its failure, I suppose it might have happened anyway, but

    lucillefrank, was this recently? 

  • Disaster rush  Mar 11 2016, 11:32:33 AM

    Hey guys. Sorry for the mundane post. 

    Has anyone gotten the $30 rush tickets to Disaster? Can you tell me how early you got there, and where your seats were? I'm coming to town in a week and on a super tight budget but am scared of heights. Thanks!

  • Deaf West's Spring Awakening Broadway Previews  Sep 8 2015, 10:39:05 PM

    I hated the original and I saw the new one in LA. It's the production we (and the show) deserved the first time around. The parts of the text I struggled with the first time around haven't gone away, but this is a dramaturgically sound, incredibly moving take that almost makes you look away from those things a little bit. I wish it a triumphant run full of packed houses. I can't wait for more people to see this, and I'm looking forward to seeing it again. 

  • WHORL INSIDE A LOOP Starts Tonight at Second Stage  Sep 3 2015, 02:58:08 PM

    I'm excited to see this.

    Slight side note, but my friends at The Interval did a great interview with Sherie about the show and her writing process, etc.: http://the-interval.com/ints/srs/

  • NYC In Nov: TOFT Question.  Aug 5 2015, 01:02:48 PM

    You should definitely make an appointment. It'll just help speed things up when you arrive, and I think the staff appreciates it, too. They might ask for specifics on why you want to view it, they might not. Do bring your student ID with you. In my experience everyone there has always been very nice. As far as I know there are no unusual restrictions on any of the Company recordings. Have fun!

  • CYMBELINE at the Delacorte  Aug 4 2015, 01:25:36 PM

    I saw it about a week ago. I had never read or seen Cymbeline before, and so after hearing all of the "oh, Cymbeline sucks, oh it's such a mess" that I had over the years, maybe I was pleasantly surprised that it really isn't a disaster, or maybe -- more likely -- sure, it's all bits and pieces of stuff we've seen before, but the production is just lovely. I thought it was lovely, anyway. Hamish and Lily were great as always, I was thrilled beyond words to have Raul back, as always, and I lik

  • Oklahoma! at Bard Summerscape  Jun 26 2015, 01:20:22 AM

    Is anyone going to see this? I'm really curious to hear more about it.

  • The Visit final performance  Jun 18 2015, 04:22:44 PM

    I had one day in New York last month and I (wisely) chose to run to see this show just in case I wouldn't get another chance. And because I couldn't possibly wait any longer to see it. I'll remember it forever and would have been crushed if I hadn't made it in time. I'm glad for those of you who got to go often. 

  • ON YOUR FEET begins pre-Broadway run in Chicago  Jun 18 2015, 04:20:04 PM

    I'm surprised by the Time Out review, honestly; I didn't expect him to be so positive on this after what I saw. But maybe it's gotten better. Because a few weeks ago the storytelling was anything but sophisticated. It was wandering and teetering on lost. Maybe I'll squeeze in another visit. 


    I looked at the new song list; Rhythm Is Gonna Get You doesn't open the show anymore? Bummer. And also not the kind of change that needs to be happening.


    I really want this show
