It's the perfect theater for this show. hope it does well there. Now 9 theaters are currently scheduled to be dark this spring: Barrymore, Belasco, Booth, Longacre, New Amsterdam(unless Poppins extends), Richard Rodgers, Neil Simon(Big Fish starts in Sept.), St. James & Studio 54. Still a lot of empty theaters this spring. Bette Milder's show should book either the Barrymore or Longacre. Any other potential shows to come in this spring??

The only other show I can think of that was discussed potentially for the spring is DETROIT.

The Velocity of Autumn (starring Estelle Parsons and Stephen Spinella) and The Miss Firecracker Contest (starring Amber Tamlbyn, directed by Judith Ivey) were both announced back in October, but not much has been said about them since.

ITW is not happening any time soon. At least, not the Park production. It'd be ridiculous for them to even consider it at this point.


I would love to see this come to pass. Give Kristine Nielsen a freakin' Tony already.

I really hope this happens and with the original cast intact, it would be a dream come true. This is the only play in recent memory that I could actually sit through a second time and enjoy it as much as--if not more than--the first viewing. The three leads were phenomenal (especially Kristine Nielsen) and the script hilarious. Tony-wise, I think it would be the show to beat!

I loved the thrust staging at Lincoln Center. It will be interesting to see it on the Golden stage. Last time I was there was first row for The Anarchist.

I thought the Golden was supposed to be totally remodeled? I was there for The Anarchist, something that I would like to forget, and it was evident that the women's room had not been remodeled since the seventies. The pink tiles gave it away. The treads on the stairs were worn too. So has the theater been remodeled, or not?

I did like the staging at Lincoln Center, and the set looked beautiful. But I was on the far side, and my view was often not the best.

The theater was remodeled prior to THE ANARCHIST. The interior of the auditorium and the seating were completely redone. I can't comment on the ladies room though.

It's official: March 5th at the Golden.

Yes, the Lincoln Center staging was terrific but when the show moves to the Golden, they'll sadly have to forgoe the wonderful "lawn" seats--and a near-naked Spike exercising at your feet and in your face.

Thrilled! Totally one of the best plays of the season, and one of Durang's best in a long time. Should do well in the Tonys too

When it played at the McCarter, it was in proscenium format, so I assume Korins will just go back to that.

Huge Christopher Durang fan. This could be a sleeper. I was going to be bummed if I missed this Off-Broadway.

Everything about this production (except the occasional bizarre line reading from Weaver) was perfection. This will absolutely be a sleeper hit and Kristine Nielsen will win a Tony if only for her breathtaking Maggie Smith impression.

DO NOT MISS THIS PLAY!!

It worked perfectly well on the Berlind stage at the McCarter, and the Golden should be a perfect fit.

I saw it earlier in its run at the McCarter and wasn't as impressed as most other, so I'm glad to get a chance to revisit after having missed it at the Newhouse.

Although I will agree in saying that Nielsen more than deserves a Tony for her phenomenal performance.

Despite its extension at Lincoln Center, I don't actually know many people who saw it.
