    Jessica Lange is such a great actress.  Why is every gif from Coven?

  • Tony predictions -- will and should win  May 4 2016, 11:15:59 AM

    Didn't read all of the thread, but I totally agree, King Charles III was the most superbly written play to come around in a long time. It deserves to win over The Humans.


  • Cell Phone Nightmare: Laura Benanti Stops the Show  May 3 2016, 10:36:18 AM

    Wow.  I didn't think there'd be so many people on both sides.  To me, a phone ringing is much more distracting than the actor calmly addressing it, then moving on.  

  • Favourite Scene Transitions?  May 3 2016, 10:23:38 AM

    Yes to the LesMiz final barracade scene when we are slowly revealed the death on the other side.

    Yes to that goose bump inducing Chorus Line opening from blackout to headshot.

    Still can't forget when the tank filled up in Let the Right One In going into the pool scene.

    The scene change during Disgraced, when the apt became unfurnished.  

    The 3 minute long scene change/song down to the lair in POTO

    They play is a masterpiece. 


    The movie, although great, suffered from having a portrayal of Donald.  It works much better without seeing Donald at all.

    Fun Home - I love this video: (Can I put this up here)



  • Royal Court production of Martin McDonagh's  Apr 19 2016, 09:31:17 AM

    this would be amazing.  maybe the Hudson will be a venue with which we see many more London transfers.   

  • THE FATHER Reviews  Apr 15 2016, 01:14:07 PM

    ^^^ and to those using earpieces.  Langella was amazing.  


    The show did such a great job putting you into Andre's mindset.  Not the best play I've ever seen, but it resonated for sure.  A great portrayal of family dealing with dementia/alzheimer's. 

  • The Father seating question  Apr 15 2016, 01:11:03 PM

    I agree.  Sit in the 2nd if you can.  Sat there on Wednesday night, BB 109 & 111.  We had a great view.

  • Broadway Real Estate  Mar 31 2016, 08:44:46 AM

    Any updates on how the renovation is going over at The Hudson?  Any announcements yet on when it will open?  Will it really be ready by next season>

      Juniors slice to go, and make that express A train home!


      If staying out, I enjoy Bar Centrale.

      GreasedLightening: Yeah, that's my point,



      woeisme3 said, "Roundabout's black and white playbills can work if they just put a little effort in."



      I'm just saying I don't think any effort went in.

    6. Times Square Theatre  Mar 5 2016, 03:44:32 AM

      <-- Times Square Theatre is my favorite.  


      This better be good! 


      So glad we're getting the Hudson back also.  

    7. PLAYBILL Covers of the 2015-2016 Season  Mar 5 2016, 03:40:25 AM

      i agree Long Day's Journey looks great in B&W.  Although, I don't think they added any extra effort.  They just used the color promo poster and put it in B&W.

    8. Favourite pre-theatre Times Square restaurant?  Feb 27 2016, 09:06:46 AM

      GYU KAKU all they way.  It's on 44th between 8th & 9th right next to Birdland.  They have a huge bar with small bites.  At the bar, all drinks and food are a special happy-hour price.  I would say there are over 30 seats in the bar area.  Never seem to have trouble getting a seat, or making it to a show ontime. 

    9. Her Requiem @ LCT3  Feb 22 2016, 08:18:20 AM

      I definitely agree that, "So many disparate themes are explored: the positive side and negative sides of obsession and passion, paternal and maternal devotion, betrayal, artistic creation, death, genius, making a living or not making a living, and many others."  I just think they could have been explored more gently and realistically.  I felt as if the playwright was shoving all these ideas in that didn't come off as believable. I think it could have wor
