  • Things about WICKED that are annoying  May 22 2017, 03:40:51 PM

    The conceit for the Stage Design was that you are actually watching the story told by the Time Dragon Clock. The clock work mechanical traveling cart that shows the truth. That is the reason for the dragon, the large clock face dial and all the gears and machinations and the whole proscenium design. That is why (in the sit down productions) you see the people operating it with pulleys and ropes. It was a nod to the source material which sort of frames the novel.

  • La LuPone gives her unvarnished opinion of Donald Trump  May 20 2017, 11:40:51 AM

    She really must stop repressing her feelings. It will make her ill.

  • OUTER CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS 2017  Apr 26 2017, 11:54:26 AM

    Yes bjh2114, it was, however it is no longer running so voters will not have a chance to see it. Too many times I have seen unworthy shows win just because of their commercial value and not so much their artistry.


  • OUTER CRITICS CIRCLE AWARDS 2017  Apr 25 2017, 08:52:38 PM

    what bothers me with these awards is that they nominate Broadway and Off Broadway shows together. I mean seriously how is Finian's Rainbow going to compete with the big budget Broadway revivals?

  • CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY Reviews  Apr 23 2017, 08:34:59 PM

    So sad. The story itself is such fertile ground!

    I have to agree Dramamama. I laughed at some of the lines!

  • What performance do critics attend?  Apr 20 2017, 06:40:43 PM

    If a show ran till 11 PM when was the final press? It would have been for the next days morning paper.I believe critics pretty much, have always seen the show before opening night and have their reviews written. They were released after the curtain came down with the first morning publication (which in olden days) were typeset and printed the night of the Opening. There might have been a few who did the opening night thing but the papers would not have been available till the wee hours.<

  • Good shows for high schoolers to perform?  Apr 19 2017, 09:07:20 PM

    A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.


  • Sunset Boulevard or Amélie  Feb 20 2017, 02:50:20 PM

    HELL, the movie has Buster Keaton, Cecil B DeMille and Hedda Hopper making cameos in it. You can't beat that! Wasn't particularly fond of the musical first time around (Saw Betty Buckley in the role). I have heard that this is somewhat of a stripped down version and that Glen Close was worth the price of admission. I will probably just rent the movie.


  • Irish Rep's The Emperor Jones to return  Feb 17 2017, 05:19:31 PM

    Just checked. Previews start March 1, opens on the 12th.

  • Irish Rep's The Emperor Jones to return  Feb 16 2017, 10:06:56 PM

    Yeah John Douglas Thompson, when asked awhile back to reprise the role, sort of said "Been there done that." I have been too busy Dusting off, repairing and rebuilding to sit in on a rehearsal. However from what I am hearing, Mr Abili is going to knock it out of the park as well.

  • Irish Rep's The Emperor Jones to return  Feb 16 2017, 08:37:59 PM

    Irish Rep is remounting the Emperor Jones by Eugene O'Neil. I believe previews begin the first or second week of March. I am very proud of this piece! Sort of a self promo here. Shill if you will. Got to design all the apparitions and Hunts. It is actually more revelevant in todays political clime then when we put it up 8 years ago! Imagine, A self proclaimed Emperor's slow descent into madness.

  • Broadway Actors who went to your school.  Feb 15 2017, 09:52:08 PM

    Patti Lupone went to my High School, Northport's own¡ She was a few year ahead of me but I rmember a daywhen she came into my Jr High's lunchroom and belted out a couple lines fro a show they were doing at the High School to drum up audience.

  • nudity on broadway  Dec 27 2016, 05:07:17 PM

    Didn't Lithgow appear naked in M Butterfly? Or was it another play he was in?



  • Tommy the Musical - any talks of a revival?  Dec 26 2016, 03:25:19 PM

    I may be mistaken, I haven't seen the movie

     in ages, but isn't Elton John singing about Tommy being the Pin Ball Wizard?


  • The rockettes to perform at the Dons inauguration  Dec 23 2016, 01:28:57 PM

    Wrong, exactly! They are Headlining the Inauguration. People will tune into see them. They will be on television worldwide. Restaurant staff are NOT headlining and not drawing public attention.
