Can I see Violet at 8pm and make it to Hedwig at 10pm? Jul 29
2014, 06:34:37 PM No Broadway show starts at the advertised time, people are always drifting in five minutes or more after the "curtain up" time. Here in London when the show starts exactly on time, I turn to my husband and say "This would never happen on Broadway".
re: Actors that phoned in their performance Jul 29
2014, 06:28:16 PM For me, it would have to be Topol in Gigi at the Open Air Theatre, Regents Park in London. He didn't phone in his performance, he texted it in - he looked as though he didn't know who or where he was!
If Hedwig comes to London there's one person who I think would be awesome in the lead role. I saw him a couple of weeks ago in the guise of his country and western alter ego, Tina C - Christopher Green. I know he's not a name but, believe me, he would be amazing!
Songs of Spiderman Book Jul 23
2014, 06:28:58 PM I loved this book (and I read it in it one day!). I would heartily recommend it to anyone who has any intention of joining the company of a Broadway show, be it performance, production, publicity. It reads like a murder mystery!

2014, 04:58:06 PM I cannot believe this is playing The Palace. What are the chances of it getting full houses? It's a big theatre but this has Off-Broadway (and if anyone comes maybe we'll transfer later) written all over it.
Kinky Boots seat advice please? Apr 4
2014, 04:53:54 PM Centre of Row A in the Mezzanine is perfect, when you sit upright you can't even see the front row of the orchestra, all you can see is the stage. I've been there twice (and once about six rows back in the orchestra) and wouldn't sit anywhere else.
Telecharge! GRRRR!!!!!! Apr 4
2014, 04:40:19 PM I agree, Telecharge customer service is so good. They've swapped tickets for me when better seats came available, refunded when I had to cancel and swapped when I realised I had booked for the week before I was arriving from London! I just wish it was as easy to book tickets online with them as it is with Ticketmaster.
For me it has to be Caryl Churchill's "Easy Money" at Wyndhams Theatre, London in 1987. The show was told in rhyming couplets which took some time to get used to, however, it was the strong language that put many people off and quite a few left the theatre in the first ten minutes or so. Act 1 ended with a song by Ian Dury, every other word of which was the C word. O
Really?? He/She is still alive?! Aug 26
2012, 07:19:28 PM I saw Mickey Rooney on stage two years ago. He played Baron Hardup in Cinderella at Milton Keynes Theatre in England - he was 89 at the time!
Jerry Springer: The Opera Jul 12
2012, 02:46:03 PM It's a shame that it never made it to Broadway before Book of Mormon as Mormon has kind of stolen its thunder.
