From what Michael Buchanan said at Mostly Sondheim on Friday, I believe he's in the cast.

Is it normal for a show to go into rehearsals without any announcements or publicity??? I can't think of any production that's done that...

I've had a ton of friends go in for this, and a few of them were involved, but they haven't said anything about it. I'm not sure if it's just wishful thinking or if it's actually happening.

hmm..well we can probably deduce it. Which off bway theaters are open and which are not. if none are open then its not coming. or are there too many to count.


someone on here has to know someone in the cast. or something about it. calling all chat board voices..go out and search for information on the validity of this show and its opening...

actually this could be a fun game. whoever can find info about it first gets to make a snarky comment without any retribution. aaaaaaaand GO!

The little Schubert has been empty since Lucky Guy closed.... it actually might be perfect... but if it's going to try to fill the Little Schubert with out big time advertisement it's going to shutter very quickly.

But Lucky Guy was an awful show.

I always thought this show was aimed for a New World Stages type run.

My friend is in the show. He was in the workshop and they kept him for the off-broadway production. He does not live in New York but I spoke with him two days ago and he said he's already in New York rehearsing for the off-broadway. Is is supposed to be kept secret or something?
. . .but forward is calling and I cannot stay here.

The show will indeed be running at the American Theatre of Actors. I believe they just began rehearsal at New 42nd Street Studios this week.

The lack of publicity is downright odd.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

It's play at ATA? But rehearsing at New 42nd? I feel like they both have a lot of money and don't have a lot of money. Has anything been commercially successful at ATA?

Oh ATA? Yeah Urinetown played there and was successful... BARE played there and was unsuccessful. ATA has like four or five theatres, if it's in the big theatre, then it's actually a VERY big theatre, and would be hard to fill... I think the Big theatre usually sits empty, or rents to concerts, and showcases.... but there's NO signage... which is a big problem, and the theatre's reputation isn't all that great, but it's a black box that can be completely transformed....

I just hope they can get some ads out ASAP, at least some free publicity, a casting announcement? A show run announcement? Some ads in the gay magazines???? anything???? This show is too amazing to let it fall through the cracks. I would be super bummed :/

Is Carly Jibson still attached?

and you're right... New 42 screams BIG budget.... ATA seems to contradict that... unless they're transforming the theatre completely.......

OR

Maybe they're just buying all the houses out.... while they work on the show... so bloggers can't interfere with the creative process... (Just a crazy theory)
