    I have tickets to see it a second time on November 5. I was thinking of selling them, but maybe I won't now...

    Let;s just make one thing clear: It's dinner only, right? I'm not expected to put out or anything?

    There's actually a lot more inside stuff than you can imagine. He was fairly close to Bernie Jacobs during the pre-Disney period when the Shuberts were leading the charge to revive Broadway.


    Those of us who are old enough to remember the last gasps of Broadway-pre-AIDS will remember that before Disney helped clean up 42nd Street, the Shuberts, Joe Papp and A Chorus Line cleaned up 44th Street.


    The whole city was in a

  • Razzle Dazzle- Michael Riedel's book  Oct 7 2015, 08:23:10 AM



    Love him or hate him--and there are so many reasons to hate him--this is the best-written book on Broadway since William Goldman's The Season. 


    He brings to life the Broadway of the 1970s and 1980s, the squalor, the desperation, the life, the deaths, the onslaught of AIDS, the rises and falls and rises of the Shuberts, A Chorus Line, Michael Bennett, Bob Fosse, Joe Papp, Sondheim, Lloyd Webber, Disney.


  • Hamilton  Oct 5 2015, 10:53:52 PM


    Have you seen it? Go see it.


    I've always hated rap and hip-hop (or thought I did) and went dreading it.


    I ended up being more excited about it--as I've said several times on this board since that night--more excited about Hamilton than I have been since I was in high school in 1971, and I went to a Saturday matinee of the original production of Follies.


    No musical since Follies--including Night Music, A Chorus

  • Who saw the original THEY'RE PLAYING OUR SONG?  Oct 2 2015, 11:00:18 PM


    Lorna Luft played it beautifully in the national tour.

    You seem to have missed Laura's point entirely.Perhaps you should go back and read what she wrote.




  • Michael Riedel's NY Post Column Cut To Once A Week  Sep 30 2015, 08:02:37 AM


    I think you have a fundamental misunderstanding of what makes Michael Riedel tick. You seem to be projecting your own agenda onto him in a manner that would undoubtedly amuse him.

    Beautifully put.

    Sending her love, and sending to Jason too.


    How amazing that she performed this while dealing with ovarian cancer treatments.

    NewYorkTheater said: "I initially included Mrs. Hamilton but I couldn't find historical material about her as easily as the better-known characters."


    Try reading the Ron Chernow. Lin did.

  • 1776 Casting  Sep 24 2015, 11:28:21 AM


    I'm perfectly capable of watching a group of good actors sing about "Molasses to Rum to Slaves" and know exactly what each one thinks by his (or her) acting. I don't need their skin color to be all matchy-matchy to their words.

    And neither, I think, do you.


  • 1776 Casting  Sep 24 2015, 11:07:03 AM

    Really. What is the big deal? I consider people who object to color-blind casting to be big babies, like the college kids who whine about "trigger warnings."


    In 1972, James Earl Jones and Colleen Dewhurst were Claudius and Gertrude in the Hamlet in Central Park that starred Stacy Keach. The three of them were brilliant.


    BRILLIANT. The play was directed by Gerald Freedman, with music by John Morris, a set by Ming Cho Lee, costumes

    Do you feel outrage that he inserted a character called "The Axe Coolie" into the show?
