    Always sad to see a show go, but boy was this one a dull night at the theatre. Here's to new and better things for the cast and crew.

  • Lin-Manuel and The Little Mermaid  Aug 16 2016, 05:37:46 PM

    Is this a different film than the Chloe Grace Moretz Little Mermaid? I'm pretty sure she has said hers isn't a musical.

    You probably won't be able to see the downstairs entrance. I remember I had a bit of trouble seeing it when I was off to the left when I saw it off-Broadway.

  • What the he'll is going on with this Florence Foster Jenkins pop up commercial!?  Aug 11 2016, 07:12:20 AM

    It really is. I feel like this happened before (Book of Mormon commercial maybe?) and the powers that be fixed it quickly. Hopefully they'll rescue us again!"



    Yeah, I think it was BOM, and hopefully this one is also a mistake that will be fixed quickly.

    91% for me as well this month. Missed #2.

  • OSLO Confirmed for Spring 2017 Broadway Bow - Vivian Beaumont Theater  Jul 27 2016, 07:20:58 PM

    JIMG3 said: "An earlier post mentioned that it belongs in a "Broadway house". I was responding to that. "


    Yes, but did you finish reading that sentence in Kad's post before writing your post or did you stop after the words "Broadway house"? He clearly knows that the Beaumont is a Broadway house...just not the house for Oslo...

    Really? I can't imagIne Salvidar in the role, but I've enjoyed him in other projects. I really enjoyed Sullivan in the role.

    That's super disappointing to hear the cast recording won't be complete, was really looking forward to a double disc album.

    Wondering the same. Weird that the article said they would be showing a "fresh" trailer, but then there has been absolutely nothing about it online  anywhere.

  • Beauty and the Beast  Jul 19 2016, 08:38:17 PM

    It seems like the people at TVLine just have no idea that no pictures have been released and did a Google search for a picture for their article.

  • Beauty and the Beast  Jul 19 2016, 08:35:47 PM

    I think the real news in that article is that a new trailer is coming.

  • Beauty and the Beast  Jul 19 2016, 08:31:38 PM

    Isn't that the same fake picture that's been floating around for what seems like a couple years now?

    Generally some are put on sale and you can buy them as you would any other performance. Just keep checking for whatever show you want to see.

    He hasn't done a show at the Music Box...

  • Your First Broadway Show  Jul 17 2016, 04:42:04 PM

    Mine was Spamalot. I saw the matinee on Tony Sunday. Memorable moments would be David Hyde Pierce's You Won't Succeed... and Tim Curry/Michael McGrath's I'm All Alone. Sara Ramirez's understudy was on, and she was not good. Best moment of the day was meeting Eric Idle beforehand. I look back at that Playbill now and see some shows in the back that were playing at the time and kick myself for missing them (oh, what I would give now to have seen The Pillowman on Broadway).

  • Dust and Ashes  Jul 17 2016, 01:15:47 PM

    The full cast was already announced, Amber Gray is returning to the role.

  • Cigarettes onstage  Jul 16 2016, 10:40:58 PM

    I feel like I remember reading something where Daniel Radcliffe said he and Richard Griffiths swapped out their herbals for real cigarettes in Equus because they were both smokers. But I could be wrong.

  • Dust and Ashes  Jul 15 2016, 02:37:15 PM

    Yeah, the best thing to do is to release a new recording. It may be just me, but the quality of the original isn't very good. I listen to it a lot and still love it, but I would love to have a recording as lovely and lush as this single.

    gypsy101 said: "yeah, thanks for that! I still hope they release a new album with Groban and Benton -- even if they just do it in the way Fun Home did, where they just had Emily Skeggs replacing Alex Socha (being that the rest of the Great Comet's cast is basically identical, it would make sense)."


    As has been mentioned before, the Fun Home method wouldn't really make sense as Pierre and/or Natasha sing on virtually every track.
