  • WAITRESS Will Officially Bow on Broadway in Spring 2016  Aug 17 2015, 12:17:58 PM

    Yeah, the second half of the second act is very effective. Subtle, honest, sweet, and very moving.

    I agree with a lot of what Whizzer said, though I think I enjoyed it a bit more than he did. 


    But he pretty much hit the nail on the head. I have faith a lot of the problems will be worked out before NY. There's something special there, for sure.


    But, yeah, Jeremy Morse's character is grating and excessive. Which is odd because that character and storyline are so secondary in the film. Not sure why they decided to emphasize it so much in

  • How Did 'Something Rotten' Become a Hit?  Aug 11 2015, 12:32:12 PM

    Yeah, it's got strong word of mouth. We will see how it fares after the summer, though. That theater is huge. 

  • The Wild Party Opens This Week  Jul 15 2015, 11:16:25 PM

    A great cast performing a mediocre show.

    Miriam Shore, Joaquina Kalukango, and Steven Pasquale made the strongest impressions.  Sutton is wildly miscast, but she does what she can.  There's no real emotional thrust to this WILD PARTY, which is a shame.  And they've done a lot of hacking, cutting, adding, moving, etc.  But it's still just "meh," and lacking an really strong emotional throughline. 

  • The Wild Party Opens This Week  Jul 15 2015, 11:10:25 AM

    What was the running time?

  • Hamilton Previews  Jul 15 2015, 12:48:38 AM

    As far as performances go, the standouts to me are Soo, Odom, and Goldsberry. Hands down. And I think if Odom and Soo are Featured, HAMILTON has a very good shot at taking home the Featured Actor and Actress awards. 


    But, as we've seen in the past, we have almost a year until the Tony Awards and a lot can change in that time. 

  • Hamilton Previews  Jul 14 2015, 02:50:38 AM

    I saw the show twice at the Public and I'm seeing it at the Rodgers soon, but Whizzer hit the nail on the head for me. It IS something that benefits from multiple viewings, however. I'm anxious to see it for a third time to see if I like it even more.


    It's not some God-send of a masterpiece, but I understand why it's creating the buzz it is. It's fresh, unique, smart, and boundary-pushing. But as far as being the best thing Broadway has seen in decades...not sold

  • A NEW BRAIN  Jun 24 2015, 11:56:43 PM

    Also...Rema Webb. 



    Thats all. 

  • A NEW BRAIN  Jun 24 2015, 11:50:30 PM

    I liked it quite a bit. It was my first exposure and I was won over for the most part. The score is lovely, and although the story is never really as moving or affecting as it should be, this is a lovely production with some awesome performances. Absolutely worth seeing.

  • The annual NY Times Tony voters poll  Jun 5 2015, 08:04:14 AM

    I'm really pulling for FUN HOME. It's leagues better than AAIP. In fact, so is ROTTEN! in my opinion. Ugh. 

  • Expert Tony predictions  May 7 2015, 01:42:37 PM

    ^ this. 

  • Expert Tony predictions  May 7 2015, 01:30:55 PM


    Isherwood's predictions are up. His AAIP love is a bit out of control...

    And, as others have said, these predictions are usually not very accurate and should be taken with a grain of salt...or a few grains. 

  • Who is winning Featured Actress in a Play?  Apr 30 2015, 09:38:29 PM

    I think and hope it'll be Sarah Stiles. 

  • If you could pick one 2015 Tony nominee, who/what would you choose?  Apr 24 2015, 11:22:13 AM

    I ask this question every year, and I always love hearing what everyone says.

    Say you had the power to guarantee one 2015 Tony nominee. What/who would be your single dream nomination (either something you don't think will get the actual nomination or something you would just absolutely love to see get recognized)? And why?

  • SOMETHING ROTTEN Reviews  Apr 23 2015, 03:16:48 PM

    Just a reminder that is run independent of Brantley or The NY Times. So those "on the fence," "thumbs up," or "thumbs down" summaries are entirely subjective. And sometimes change. But they aren't affiliated with Brantley directly at all. It's Ken Davenport's site. 


    I miss StageGrade too. Ugh  



  • SOMETHING ROTTEN Reviews  Apr 23 2015, 09:16:27 AM

    How many stars from the Post?

  • SOMETHING ROTTEN Reviews  Apr 23 2015, 01:43:01 AM

    Brantley's review stands out as the most overtly negative of the bunch. Frankly I am a big fan of the show and have been for some time. I hope it manages to be the hit it deserves to be, whether or not that means a Tony Award. 

  • DOCTOR ZHIVAGO Reviews  Apr 21 2015, 11:05:37 PM

    These are...special. 

  • Tonys: This Year's Full Field of Contenders  Apr 21 2015, 04:58:13 PM

    Right, but they also haven't met on ISBY and FUN HOME and he makes judgement calls about category placement for many people from those shows.
