    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.

  • Hadestown to receive a live cast album  Jul 10 2016, 09:07:47 PM

    I believe when it was announced they said they were recording two performances (6/28 and 6/29 I think). No idea when it will be released, but I am looking forward to it.

  • The OFFICIAL Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Preview Thread  Jul 10 2016, 12:31:48 PM

    Well, no. It will be a published play and you will read the play.

    Phantom4ever said: "Just saw all the bootlegs that were put up (somewhere online) with the original cast and couldn't believe how bored the cast looked.  Everyone except Leslie.  "


    As someone who hasn't seen the show, I saw one of them online last night and didn't even finish watching that video. I know it's hard to capture what energy is like live, especially on a bootleg, but boy was that low energy and dull. I've been pu

  • Matilda movie??  Jul 8 2016, 11:13:05 PM

    I always enjoyed the movie when I was little.

  • General Rush for Privacy?  Jul 8 2016, 08:36:57 PM

    The TodayTix lotteries usually open at midnight, I believe, and the Privacy lottery tickets are $20.


    ETA: if you happen to win and have never used TodayTix before, you can use a referral code for $10 off that...shameless plug, my referral code is ACMIB

    According to Playbill.
