  • Parade Revival?  Jul 22 2016, 07:35:38 PM

    Just as they don't replicate the bloated original and do the Donmar Warehouse version instead.

    Anyway it is doomed to failure, as Americans don't like self analyst and criticism, which Parade does.

    Sadly it looks like we may have 5 empty theatres this fall, with shows waiting to the spring to load their new show in.

    Looks like we are going to have the:

    Helen Hayes


    Music Box





    Any chance these might have a show this year?

They will miss the summer rush and could open in a slower period (e.g. September/October), then will have make it past the winter till when I can see it haha (in the Spring). That said, with this particular cast and opening at a time where there isn't much competition, maybe it will be fine.

    Hi-five Tripelite from London

    Looking to come out to California in November.I couldn't find a decent website for theatre in the Los Angeles area, you do get the Los Angles Theatre website, which is replicated fo every city in America, but with a different city name, however this website is very very limited. I have put a link below, so everyone is on the same page as me.

    Would be very handy if someone did something similar for San

    I think that large scale revivals are, in general, the stuff of non-profits (which essentially means LCT by default). I don't think there is enough interest to sustain a long enough run to make the lines cross (meaning break even). In this particu

  • Fiddler Closing  Jul 20 2016, 03:58:09 AM

    I think this has had a decent run in a very big theatre, with no real names.

    I don't suspect the producers envisaged it to run any longer.

    This will always pull in musical aficinardos and a big vibrant Jewish population in New York.

I have seen the show more times than I can count from the time I was 9 years old. I am 25 now!  I was extremely excited to see it again, but was ready to be disappointed. I WAS NOT!!! and trust me I find something wrong every time I go to see it because I always felt there was nothing that could live up to the times I saw it on Broadway!

    The band was great it was rocking all night! Rum Tum Tugger was rockin.

  • What theatre will  Jul 10 2016, 08:31:10 PM

    The Palace in London, was originally built as an opera house.

  • What theatre will  Jul 10 2016, 03:24:21 PM

    Be sure that the Shuberts, Nederlander and Jujamcun are all in line vying to get this in one of their theatres, my feeling this will go into the August Wilson, with Jersey Boys running out of steam.

    Nothing will be reported until after the London press night and assuming the critic are good, Michael Riedel will be all over this.

    Well I am not "aware" either but the theatre has been vacant for long stretches, and has been sold several times, with nary a peep out of Disney even though they are undoubtedly not unaware of the albatross that sits opposite their crown jewel. So it does seem pretty clear to me they have no interest in it. 

    This could be ju

  • How long will Paramour last?  Jul 7 2016, 05:26:29 PM

    In time it will run out of steam, it's obvious that tourists are keeping this going, but once it starts to show it cannot make any money, it will simply decamp and move to Vegas, the Venetian hasn't got a big show and other hotel franchises would snap it up.

    Thought the Lyric would be the ideal Broadway house for Frozen, rather than the St James, onviously I expect Frozen to sell out, so would of assumed that Disney would have been all over the lyric, those 300 - 400 extra seat

  • SHUFFLE ALONG Sets Sudden Broadway Closing After Audra McDonald Departs  Jun 26 2016, 05:01:39 PM

    Insurance would be void here, because she has already announced she was leaving for London, maybe the London production has insurance to guard against this.

    On a positive note it is great that the shows longevity is reliant on a Broadway star, that only really does theatre, not someone from the movies or television,

    Suppose website have heat maps of what is popular and not, compared to others - so this would have made the decision for the New York Post. gone are they days of the great Clive Barnes.

    Theatre related articles are on the decline, which is a shame.

    An argument I have heard on here many times, where posters say "why don't they open the show in the Spring instead of the Fall", we have a good example here with the only Spring shows open:

    Shuffe Along (Closing soon)

    Bright Star (Closed)

    Tuck Everlasting (Closed)

    Paramour (Open)

    Nerds: The Musical (Never Opened)

    She Love Me (Open - Limited Engagement)

    American Psycho (Closed)

  • Bright Star - Stop Clause?  Jun 22 2016, 04:46:07 PM

    I am not sure either that the Shuberts enacted the stop clause for Rocky, why would they? Issue closure proceedings for the theatre to sit empty for months, including the important thanksgiving - christmas period, if they were going to evoke the stop clause they would have done so in January, which gives  the next show to load in for the Spring.

  • Riedel on Groundhog Day being in big trouble  Jun 22 2016, 04:31:55 PM

    Production costs are too high on Broadway, with to many hanger oners and people on super inflated salaries.
