"Is Caroline back in the role? I am seeing the show tomorrow and saw Jenny a few years ago and, while I loved her, would like to see a fresh take on the role."
Caroline is indeed back.
- Alex Sharp vs. Steven Boyer May 19
2015, 08:56:33 PM
I have not seen Hand to God yet, so I can't comment on Steven Boyer, but what I loved so much about Alex Sharp's performance was the way his performance felt not only genuine, but held it's own in the large spectacle that is Curious Incident. I love performances that transcend and I absolutely believe that is what Alex Sharp is doing as Christopher.

2015, 08:57:46 PM
I believe he is contracted for a year, but anything can change if he books a new project. I haven't heard of him leaving anytime soon, so you should be good.
- annoyed, disappointed, bitter about having to see Finding Neverland without Matthew Morrison May 10
2015, 08:17:35 PM
Long story short: The guy needed a day off and his voice gave out, so he planned to be out the matinee, needed to rest more, and called out the evening. As people have been stating left and right in this thread, performers are indeed human and sometimes they need to rest up after non stop pushing themselves. Neverland is certainly not an easy show on a person, especially when you barely leave the stage the entire show like Matthew does.
It is never easy when someone you want
- Brian D'Arcy James Stage Door May 9
2015, 09:26:08 PM
I've never seen Brian get upset with anyone in the interactions I've had with him, but like someone said everyone has those bad days.
Edit: I didn't see the thing about him checking Playbills for his headshot, but that seems very odd and out of character to me.
- Les miserables revival struggling? May 7
2015, 04:59:22 PM
The photo shoot for the new ad campaign was done at a weird time when I don't think the new cast members had been cast/the previous cast members had decided to leave or not. I know Andy Mientus had been on leave to film The Flash while Nikki M. James was on vacation, prompting them to use Matt Rosell (the pictured Marius, who was one of the two covers while Mientus was on leave) and Briana Carlson Goodman (former tour Eponine and brief member of the ensemble before leaving to join Dr. Zh
- Bought a Show T-Shirt, Doesnt Fit May 7
2015, 12:49:29 AM
On the bottom of the American in Paris merch page, there is a link to click to contact them, I'd suggest filling out the form there and explaining the issue and see what becomes of it.
Worse comes to worse, sell the shirt to someone and use the money to buy a new one in your size online.

""jorge - I completely agree with you about Jenn Gambatese. She is such a talented lady, and underrated.
My addition is Bryce Pinkham. "
Out of my brain, you.
Bryce Pinkham has more than proven that he is a diverse actor, and he is an absolute delight to watch on stage. "
Me? Clearly, you jest.
What she said, because it's true.

If you have the chance, you should absolutely see American in Paris.
I don't know if you're seeing Hedwig because Darren's in it or maybe it's a favorite show of yours, but if you can spare the spot, I highly suggest American in Paris. I haven't seen Finding Neverland, but very much want to, so I'd say keep that on the schedule as planned.
- Aladdin ? Apr 13
2015, 11:03:38 PM
Why would the director of Aladdin spoof himself?
Also, if that is spoofing anything it's Chicago and Billy Flynn.
- Darren Criss in Hedwig Apr 13
2015, 10:18:39 PM
Darren has never come across very butch to me, in fact he comes across rather flamboyant.
I don't have too much of an opinion on him in the role, but I wish him all the best.
- Best and Worst Orchestrations in a musical Apr 13
2015, 10:11:47 PM
I love the orchestrations for Cinderella, they were just so lush and beautiful. I'm also fond of the arrangements of the Elvis music in All Shook Up - especially the gorgeous arrangement of "Can't Help Falling in Love".
- AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Reviews Apr 13
2015, 10:09:02 PM
Bottom line for me: We are incredibly blessed to have two musicals this season that feature the music of two of our greatest American composers--Gershwin and Bernstein--in musicals with wonderful casts and the kind of glorious dancing you seldom see any more.
That's enough for me to be grateful for.

I really shouldn't try and post when half asleep, because my post should have said IF it's Janet.. but apparently my mind failed me.
Ana looks adorable and has such a striking young Gloria vibe to her, obviously. Josh Segarra is a really talented guy, and I can't wait to see him in a role that's different than his work in Dogfight and Lysistrata Jones.
- AN AMERICAN IN PARIS Reviews Apr 13
2015, 06:44:00 PM
Sorry to double post, but I just actually thought more about this and had to get it out there: American in Paris challenges what a musical can be, and challenges the idea that in a musical a song is the only way to tell a story and that dance can do just that in so many ways, in this case especially, better.
On the Town moved me in places, but not anything like American in Paris did.
