    ^Agreed, she was one of the ones who made the biggest impressions on me when I first saw it off-Broadway. Between Comet and Hadestown, she has had a great year.

     

    I'd like to add Patrick Page in Hadestown to the mix. I've loved Greg Brown on the concept album and wasn't sure how I would feel about someone else as Hades, but Page gave such a fantastic performance. His "His Kiss, the Riot" was for me one of the best theatrical moments of the year. I real

    I'm really curious what route they go in replacing Groban come July (give it to Stangland or try to find another star).

    I can't say that I am about to pull my hair out, but I have been entering for Othello. It's a hot ticket, I don't really expect to ever win it, as I have always had terrible luck with lottos (no joke, when I did Matilda in person, every single person who entered had their name pulled, even the people who had entered with friends that had already won, and I was literally the last piece of paper in the bag). I never really expect to win lotta, I get more frustrated when todaytix doe

    I think you are also correct in thinking Dear Evan Hansen is more likely to tour.

  • Riedel on DeNiro and A Bronx Tale  Nov 30 2016, 06:22:13 PM

    Patti LuPone FANatic said: "Riedel is a *itch! for saying that Bronx Tale is not likely to last long.  "

     

    Uhh, not sure where you got that from...the closest thing to that that he actually said is that it isn't going to last as long as Jersey Boys, which is probably true...

  • NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 Previews  Nov 22 2016, 09:43:04 PM

    Ha. I'm kind of surprised it hasn't popped up online yet. I'm getting the book for Christmas and looking forward to checking it out. As for Groban, yeah, that was one of the hardest parts of seeing the show for me. I am just so used to Dave Malloy's voice, which is a bit different than Groban's to say the least.

    Try to get an aisle seat and be as close to the front of the rear mezz as you can. I felt a little left out when I saw it from the rear mezz (I had previously seen it from a much better seat, so I may be biased), but it felt like the actors only came up the aisle near me two or three times. It's all staged much more for the front mezz. 

     

    Actually if you can be near the platform in the middle section of the rear mezz, that would be a good spot too I think.

    I was wondering that too, actually...my guess is The Great Comet of 1812.

    Yeah, it was discussed during the Ars Nova stuff was happening, they talked about scheduling the recording for the same day as the Ars Nova gala (Dec 5th I believe), also someone asked Dave Malloy on Twitter if there was going to be a new recording and his reply was something like "Yes, recording in December"...I will see if I can find it...
