Are you looking for restaurants in the theater district? What do you consider reasonably priced (it's different for everyone)? Does type of cuisine matters? Knowing these things is helpful when questions like this are asked.
I'd happily take Joshua Henry as Billy. Or the aforementioned James Snyder, who was astonishing at Goodspeed. Pasquale has a gorgeous voice, but as a complete package, I've long felt there's no there there.
RippedMan said: "I think the Humans transferring was just a smart choice by Rudin w/o the insider trading. There were no strong play competitors, and look how it turned out.
Yeah, exactly. Rudin goes to the theater to fall in love, and when he does, he will go out of his way to deploy the considerable resources he has at his disposal in service of the show. By all accounts that is what happened here. I'm sure he was happy when the sho
Feud: "a mutual enmity or quarrel that is often prolonged or inveterate"
There's nothing mutual about this. Isherwood has a pathological hatred of Brantley that he's manufactured almost entirely himself. Brantley may not like Isherwood as a person, but from a professional standpoint, he would not feel threatened by Isherwood at all.
Is Barbara Barrie doing all performances? At some point during the Off Broadway run, she stopped doing matinees on two-show days. I don't begrudge her, but I also don't want to see the show without her.
Isherwood's hatred of Brantley borders on the pathological, and one could argue that he allowed it to influence his work by going out of his way to bash shows that Brantley reviewed favorably. I feel like that's something that hasn't gotten enough focus in the airing out of this situation.
No idea if these people are current smokers, but at one point or another they all smoked:
Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal, Alice Ripley, Billy Porter, Tammy Blanchard, Michael Ball, Euan Morton, Alix Korey, Jarrod Emick (who was a really heavy smoker at one point--I used to see him around the stage door of BOY FROM OZ smoking in costume during the show), Chuck Cooper, Leah Hocking, Raul Esparza.
Patti LuPone was a heavy smoker for years, quitting when she became pregnant with
The Penitent is another in the long line of boring and pointless treatises we've come to expect from this author. It is a character study of a psychiatrist, Charles (played by Chris Bauer), whose career and life are derailed after he refuses to testify on behalf of a former patient who committed a massacre. The patient claims that Charles will not testify because the patient is gay, and Charles, having recently become religious, is prejudiced. Most of the plo
Actors don't work for you. And when you meet them at the stage door, they're off the clock. That they even stop to sign an autograph or snap a photo is purely a courtesy on their part. You may personally find smoking distasteful, as I do, but it's ridiculous to expect someone who's essentially doing you a favor to act in a manner that you deem appropriate.
Simon Stimson's "ignorance and blindness" speech from Our Town. It's not a rant in the sense that the character is hemming and hawing, but when done correctly, the anger and pain that comes across in those sentences can be absolutely chilling.

The show is still on track to recoup, but the reviews definitely hurt it. The advance was strong, but the word of mouth and reviews quashed that a bit. But even with Blanchett, a three-hour play about sad Russians--based on an obscure, rarely produced work of Chekhov--was always going to be a hard sell. Ha
I saw a number of shows there in the mid/late 90s. It was always a really odd space. The description of it as a black box with a Broadway designation is apt. As newintown already mentioned, the acoustics were famously terrible. It was only operational as a theater for about a decade--I believe the Stockard Channing/Larry Fishburne LION IN WINTER was the last show that played there--and I don't think its loss was as much of a tragedy as some people make it out to be.
