  • Listening to Encores MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG  Sep 26 2016, 11:05:24 AM

    I actually don't care for Lin at all in this production. They added Colin singing some songs with him as a duet because his voice was lacking. I was very disappointed in his "Franklin Shepard, Inc" especially after Euan Morton's terrific version earlier in Sondheim on Sondheim.

  • Imelda as Rose coming to NY?  Sep 26 2016, 09:47:40 AM

    From my understanding the very negative buzz after the screening/dvd release stateside killed any talks. After seeing it in person and on video I think that's for the best. Her Lovett would be a much more welcome transfer, either in that production of Sweeney or a new one.

  • Hello Dolly breaks first day ticket sales record  Sep 20 2016, 10:22:45 AM

    It does get tiring to hear about box office records/house records/ etc when it's 99% ticket price increases. You can say Avatar is the highest grossing movie of all time, but Gone with the Wind technically sold more tickets, just at a dime each.

  • Hello, Dolly  Sep 20 2016, 10:20:39 AM

    I think it would be really shady (but not unheard of) for them to put tickets on sale, sale out almost instantly for months and THEN a month later say "Oh, Bette's not doing Sunday matinees (or whatever performance)." They've said she's doing all shows currently on sale, correct? They're only selling 7 a week so I can assume when they announce a standby/alternate they'll put those Tuesdays and Sundays on sale as well.

  • Characters in Lobby during Intermission?  Sep 19 2016, 04:02:22 PM

    During The Mystery of Edwin Drood actors mingled with the audience before the show. Will Chase used to even open car/taxi doors and escort ladies into the theatre.

  • Cameron Mackintosh Asks Understudies to Stop Tweeting Their Upcoming Appearances  Sep 14 2016, 11:48:25 AM

    In my opinion, if there are scheduled absences the understudies have a right to announce they'll be performing. It helps friends, fans (of theirs and the show in general), directors, and casting agents an opportunity to see you. When I interned for a large casting agency they found out an understudy they LOVED was going on in the principal role for the first time and several of them changed their evening plans to go see her, which honestly only has helped her career. 

  • FOLLIES at Repertory Theatre of St. Louis  Sep 8 2016, 09:58:47 AM

    It's always funny to hear people after any production of Follies say things like "I loved that guy even though he forgot the words!" John McMartin's talked about how people would still come up and say they say Follies the night he went up on the line of his song!

  • Did Barbara Cook see recent production oh SHE LOVES ME  Sep 4 2016, 02:32:56 PM

    Judy Kuhn did an interview years ago where she said on opening night of her revival of "She Loves Me: Barbara Cook sent her a tiny glass perfume bottle she kept from the set of the original production.  She gushed about about how sweet and touching it was and how she hoped the show was revived again so she could pass it along to the next Amalia. I've spent the past few months wondering if she did.

    What is the run time for the show?

  • Sweet Charity - New Group, tix on sale.  Aug 30 2016, 12:42:15 PM

    Liza's Headband said: "Except that you're forgetting a commercial producer is already attached to this production of SWEET CHARITY, which probably would mean LCT rents out the Beaumont (rather than become a co-producer) provided they have the ability to do so. I'd be surprised if New Group and McCollum wanted to bring in an entity as large as LCT. What would be the point?"

    I completely agree the space is too large for this production (site unseen). I

  • Sweet Charity - New Group, tix on sale.  Aug 30 2016, 11:18:15 AM

    A show that starts at a nonprofit can easily transfer to another nonprofit. It would just depend on if The New Group wants to share money/producing credit with Lincoln Center and if Lincoln Center would want to give up its space for a year or more. LCT transferring War Horse from the National Theatre is a good example. 

    Venus in Fur transferred from Classic Stage Company to MTC to a commercial production as well.

  • Jennifer Holliday to join THE COLOR PURPLE  Aug 24 2016, 03:11:21 PM

    I wonder if John Doyle had any decision in this casting. I'd hate for this production to turn into a Chicago-style rotation. Wendy Williams IS Sophia!

  • Riedel on Sondheim being halfway done with a new musical  Aug 23 2016, 09:20:18 PM

    icecreambenjamin said: "I'm happy that Laura Benanti is pregnant and all, but I do really wish that she had gotten the opportunity to originate a Sondheim role.  I also agree that Marc Kudisch is fantastic. "

    She's due in January so it's possible, but I doubt she'd want to jump into work, even something like this, mere weeks after giving birth/

  • Could the Miss Saigon revival extend?  Aug 23 2016, 09:11:25 PM

    From what I understand it's open-ended in mentality with the "limited run" used to safe face if ticket sales are abysmal. If they're sturdy they'll get press by "extending."

  • Sweeney Todd revival at Barrow Street  Aug 23 2016, 12:06:21 PM

    I saw this in London and it was certainly a fun experience. The actors and staging added nothing new for me, but It was definitely worth the atmosphere created with using candles to light the show and having all the actors mere inches away from you at all times.

  • Charlie to the Lunt-Fontanne  Aug 22 2016, 08:57:45 PM

    Wildcard said: "They can totally do away with "If Your Mother Were Here." It just stops the momentum of the show."

    Really? That was the only song in the show I actually liked. It's a simply beautiful melody with a very touching meaning. I can understand how it stops the action a bit, but it shows Charlie comes from a loving home and his parents are trying their best to provide. 

    I may be biased since it replaces the on

  • In The Heights revival?  Aug 16 2016, 11:35:21 AM

    Based on the cell phones used in the show it was most definitely the year it was produced, maybe a year or two earlier.

    I still think it would have been a lot easier to believe this "life-changing" amount of money was a bit higher. He mentions moving a sipping cocktails by a beach, not opening a new business or something. It's not a huge flaw, but it's always been unclear to me. I feel the same way about a lot of weird things in Nina's storyline too, her paren

  • In The Heights revival?  Aug 16 2016, 10:50:05 AM

    I still NEED to know why they kept the lotto at $96,000. Yes, it's a large sum but taking almost half for taxes, splitting it into thirds isn't enough for a man in his 30s to retire on, even with selling the bodega.

  • Mufti will return with Milk & Honey and DEAR WORLD  Aug 12 2016, 09:39:31 AM

    I know Mufti is much smaller-scale and less "big/showy" than Encores but I wonder why Herman granted them the rights when Encores has been trying for YEARS to do those shows and Mack and Mabel, but Jerry insistent they all deserve full-scale first class revivals.
