  • Will THE BANDSTAND open on Broadway?  Nov 30 2016, 02:44:54 PM

    Theater_Nerd is so correct. We have such a tendency to devour our own young here, especially when it comes to new shows with original material. What say we give Bandstand a chance before ripping it to shreds? Andy Blankenbeuler has repeatedly said that the creative team has made many changes to the show since its run at Paper Mill. None of us has seen this show as it will appear on Broadway.


  • The Bandstand Previews  Oct 11 2015, 12:09:11 PM

    Thank you all for your reviews. It's so interesting how split they are, some very positive and some very negative.

    Did anyone see the first preview tonight? I'd love to see your comments.

  • Bandstand at Paper Mill  Aug 11 2015, 04:26:40 PM

    Laura has been saying for some time that she would love for her next role to be one in which she gets to create a character in a new musical. Bandstand gives her that opportunity.

    Thanks, RaisedOnMusicals, it's good to know. It's a wonderful show & I'm glad to know the producers did (at least) OK.

    Does anyone know how the show did financially?
    Did it recoup?
  • Steven Pasquale to lead in  Dec 18 2014, 02:05:43 PM
    I'm very excited about this casting and would love to see it transfer to Broadway. Laura is the quintessential R&H leading lady.

    I found a video of Steven Pasquale singing "You'll Never Walk Alone" at this year's Miscast benefit in March. He says that Billy is a role in which he never would be cast. His performance knocks it out of the park.
  • The 2015 NBC Live Musical?  Dec 5 2014, 10:56:23 PM
    I doubt that R&H Cinderella (Beane version) would be an option for next year because it would coincide with the national tour of the show.
  • Dear Barry & Fran Weissler,  Sep 26 2014, 12:53:22 PM
    FindingNamo, I'm curious. Why the prejudice? Is it the reality show thing?
  • Broadway Rumors  Sep 26 2014, 12:44:09 PM
    Has anyone heard anything about what Laura Osnes' next B'way role will be? I can't imagine that she won't be in a new show sometime this season.
  • Bandstand Workshop  Sep 12 2014, 03:23:48 PM
    Interesting, sweetTb'way. Playbill had the worksho lasting from Aug. 11 through Sept. 19. I thought that this was a remarkably long time for a workshop.
  • Bandstand Workshop  Sep 12 2014, 01:49:22 PM
    I'm excited reading today about the Bandstand workshop taking place through this week. They performed for potential financial backers, whom Reidel said were enthusiastic. He's high on the show too, calling it a potential 2015 Tony winner. Does anyone know more about the show or producers' plans for future development of the musical?
  • Peter Pan Live  Jul 8 2014, 12:59:58 AM
    What do you all think of casting Carly Rose Sonenclar as Peter? I think she'd be excellent.
  • Drama Desk Award predictions?  Jun 1 2014, 12:02:58 PM
    If you want to watch the awards online, they are available on Livestream, starting at 7:15.

  • Carly Rae Jepsen's replacement  May 20 2014, 12:44:02 PM
    The article says that Cinderella has just released a new block of tickets that run through New Years. They're planning to be around at least through the holidays.
  • Lortel Award Winners 2014  May 5 2014, 05:50:56 AM
    Was Threepenny Opera eligible? I'm surprised that it didn't receive any nominations.
  • Carole King Attends BEAUTIFUL Tonight  Apr 5 2014, 02:46:09 PM
    This is the epitome of why I love live theater.
  • Laura Osnes - Perfect roles?  Apr 5 2014, 02:41:40 PM
    I'd love to see Laura play Maria in West Side Story.
