    Yes, Broadway actors, particularly one like Holliday, at the theatre for at least 24 hours a week, really aren't able to keep up with current events, like knowing that a significant percentage (possibly the majority) of their fan base, the LGBT community, feels that Donald Trump represents a t

  • Jennifer Holliday's decision/backlash- her response on the View  Jan 19 2017, 03:06:09 PM

    I feel the social media backlash blindsided her. She said something to the effect that she didn't know everything that was going on. At first I thought, "Really?". I then realized that she was probably preparing to go into Color Purple around election time and was in the show after up until closing. Not surprised doing 8 shows a week and maybe not being a big social media person that she wasn't aware of the strong backlash. She quickly did though and pulled out. JMO

    Yeah, they started using his name shortly after he announced that he was running. He announced in June of 2015.

    I was there recently and the audience went nuts over it. I suspect it will stay in for a long while.

    Did she just...casually drop the n word on national television? "


     

    Yup. I think she said it twice. Glad she said it instead of saying "the n word".

    Always looked to see if she was the photographer when I bought programs. The NYPL exhibition was wonderful. I spent almost 2 hours in that room. May she rest in peace.

    Most welcome!

     

    Those last moments were emotionally devastating and not sure the impact will be the same the second time around. Will most likely see it as it is a very good play.

    Totally forgot Ragtime! That was breathtaking.

  • Cynthia Erivo  Jan 10 2017, 02:20:19 PM

    What Queen Alice said.

    Also, I enjoyed the original and LaChanz's performance. Erivo is a force, no question about it. I too want to see what she does next. I also think this scaled down production pulled you more into the story than the original and being done in a more intimate theater is what made Erivo's performance, and the entire show, so electrifying.

    Mister Matt said: "Most of mine have already been mentioned, but one that I found extremely effective and memorable was Oh the Thinks You Can Think from Seussical (the Broadway production, not the WTF national tour opening that looked like the citizens of THX 113.  It was so joyous and catchy, I couldn't get the song out of my head after I left the theatre, a couple of months before the recording was

  • What are your favourite opening numbers?  Jan 10 2017, 01:34:22 PM

    My all time favorite is "Walk Him Up the Stairs" from PURLIE.  Pippin and A Chorus Line's opening numbers are my other favorites.

  • Gyllenhaal and Ashford to open SUNDAY at The Hudson  Dec 13 2016, 02:23:57 PM

    I attended the sneak peek of "On The Town" at the Hudson. A pretty intimate theater. From what I remember the stage wasn't really high up. I sat a few rows back from it on the side. Also, from what I remember, balcony seats should have a fine view.

    Since I posted my comments, years ago, a few things have changed! I got to sing in the large chorus for "Just No Time At  All" on the PIPPIN revival recording. He was there and was so much fun and was so excited that he re-wrote the ending a bit, on the spot, out of excitement. I have also had the chance to meet him and be around him on a few occasions. Very nice man. Also, after posting my comments I came to my own conclusion as to why he may have walked out of the Tony's

  • Should WICKED Have Won Best Musical Over AVENUE Q?  Dec 9 2016, 08:39:27 AM

    yankeefan7 said: "Wicked is still running strong and Avenue Q closed on Broadway a long time ago. The musical score  of Wicked is superior IMO  and then add the combination of the great performances by Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenowith."

     

    Avenue Q is still running off-Broadway, is in good shape, and doing very well.

    I like both shows but feel "Caroline or Change" was far superior. It should also have won the Pulitzer. I think it was a crime that t
