    There's a great clip of Nathan Lane and Faith Prince doing Sue Me from Guys and Dolls. Shows them both at their very best.

  • Laura Benanti chides people for not applauding  May 20 2016, 08:47:43 AM

    Anyone who owns a TV understands the concept of applauding after a number. You see it in concerts, sit-coms, dramas, school dance recitals, everywhere. People are not applauding because they don't want to. Not because they don't understand the practice.

    It's like asking your honey to give you flowers. If you have to ask, how much are they really worth?

  • Doubt - an answer (spoiler)  May 16 2016, 02:09:50 PM

    I think it's a disservice to the audience if a particular director/actor directs/acts the show in such a way that it makes you feel you can guess guilt or innocence. I feel they should direct you towards doubt, not conclusion. As Henrik says, that is the whole point of the play, not whether he did it, but how you deal with suspicion when set against doubt.

  • Under-active composers  May 10 2016, 12:34:48 PM

    Love it! I've seen hundreds of shows over the years, and having Ms Clarke sing Fable straight at me in the 3rd row of the Vivian Beaumont is still the highlight of my theatre going career. And a production of Floyd Collins at the Speakeasy Stage in Boston is what got me to subscribe to them for the past 15 years or so.
    Please give us more!

    The last revival did a medley of "I don't Know His name" and the title song. I remember it because it's what got me interested in a show that's now one of my all-time faves.

  • Cell Phone Nightmare: Laura Benanti Stops the Show  May 3 2016, 10:50:27 AM

    I think a performer addressing it from the stage is actually less distracting. If a phone rings during a quiet, important moment and no one addresses it, I'm left to sit there and stew about how annoying it was and how the moment was ruined by some moron. On the other hand, if an actor deals with it from the stage, I have the satisfaction of knowing the moron got his/hers and I can let the moment go and get right back into the play without dwelling on it.

  • GREY GARDENS off-broadway vs obc cast album?  Apr 29 2016, 01:55:03 PM

    I also prefer the Broadway album for Davie's performance. But I enjoy the Off as well for the different songs.

  • SHE LOVES ME extends until 7/10  Apr 14 2016, 01:02:17 PM

    This is perfect! One of my fave musicals but I didn't think I'd get to see it. 7/10 is my birthday. So I took it as a sign and snatched up 3rd row center. This will be a great birthday!

    "And, of course, I have my issue with the directorial/acting choices to make Earl an abuser. "

    Seriously, this is not a directorial/acting choice. No one here can have the script to quote passages to you to prove this. But this is NOT the story you want it to be. It is based on a movie which is specifically about her struggle to escape from an abusive husband who is specifically physically threatening, and start her life over. Watch the movie. It's clear as a bell.

    He's definitely controlling in the script. Controlling is a very serious type of abuse.

    I'm not sure why you think it's more interesting to leave someone because you don't think they're right for you. That happens to millions of people every day. I find it much more interesting to see an abused woman break free from the manipulative pattern abusers use of alternating terror with smothering "love". It's much less common for people to escape that dyn
