Laura is great casting. Very excited for this.

And with Martha Clarke directing, this should be very exciting!!
"It's now rather very common to hear people say 'I'm rather offended by that'. As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more than a whine. It has no meaning, no purpose. It has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that'. Well, so f**king what?"--Stephen Fry

When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

Is there intent of this making it to Broadway?

Who's Macheath? The article doesn't attach roles to the actors.

That other link that givemesvoice breaks it down better: Michael Park is Macheath, Sally Murphy is Jenny, Lilli Cooper is Lucy, Rick Holmes is Tiger Brown.

Loving Sally Murphy as Jenny. Great cast all-around, too.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I doubt this would go to Broadway commercially.

But does that mean that Dames at Sea isn't happening this season?

There aren't any available theaters for Dames at Sea this season.

Awesome.

Look at tickets, I see a lot of "Back 20" seats for only $20. That's quite a price drop in a space so small that there are no bad seats. Have they always offered these?

I think they're only for the previews, but not sure. If you look at April, the "back 20" aren't showing up.

Great price though! Thanks for posting it.

"In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last - only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life - beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life." - Sherie Rene Scott

Did anyone catch the Roundabout revival in 2006? How was it? Casting looked interesting.

Wow, great casting all around. Any time to see Sally Murphy on stage is a treat.
"Some people can thrive and bloom living life in a living room, that's perfect for some people of one hundred and five. But I at least gotta try, when I think of all the sights that I gotta see, all the places I gotta play, all the things that I gotta be at"

And for those who have never seen Martha Clarke, she is one of the most gifted dance-theater artists we have. Reginald Tresilian and I have seen nearly everything she's done.

Oh, man! What a cast! Pretty sure I'm going to make it back to NY before May. This is on my 'must-see' list. Absolutely nothing like the music of Kurt Weill.

That revival was a disaster. Alan Cummings looked like he was "under the influence" of something, and the rest were AWFUL, with the exception of Jim Dale. One of the WORST experiences I've EVER had in the NYC theater.

The Back 20 seats are only for previews. I think they started offering them after the renovation.

Thanks for the heads up on the $20 tix. Just paid $47.79 for a pair in the center. Haven't been there since SPRING AWAKENING, and that was great even from the back row!
O-ho the Wells Fargo wagon is a-comin' down the street.
Oh please let it be for me!

F. Murray Abraham does constantly interesting work in a huge array of stage and screen projects.
Laura Osnes seems to fit the part well, but this pushes her in a new direction.
Sally Murphy as Jenny really excites me too, and that part can make or break a production.
The producers, director, and casting director did a great job pulling this cast together!

I wonder whether Pirate Jenny will be given to Polly or Jenny in this production and whether the Barbara Song is given to to Polly or to Lucy. There is enough historical precedent to assign these songs to either role.
