Merrily We Roll Along screening - ticket glitch? Sep 13
2013, 11:06:04 AM
Sometimes they will open up additional theaters for screening closer to the date, so keep checking back. When Fathom screened Singin' in the Rain in theaters for an anniversary celebration, I got to it too late and tickets were sold out. I sent both Fathom and the AMC on 42nd Street requests to open up an additional theater for the screening and they ended up doing it and I was able to get a ticket. It's worth asking and checking back regularly.
And I'm upset that my DVD of the broadcast got lost in my last move. I'm constantly wanting to rewatch it and am always disappointed to find it nowhere in my apartment!

So thankful to you all for reminding me that this is happening. I just grabbed tickets for tonight's show and cannot wait. One of my favorite evenings was seeing Paulo Szot at Cafe Carlyle. After the show, I stuck around the bar chatting with some friends and his second show ended up being undersold, so they let us stick around and watch the second show for free. If there is anyone I could listen to sing the same set list twice in a row, it is Paulo Szot. I can't wait for tonight!
Recent Cinderella Rush? Jul 4

Playbill still says rush is for Mon-Thurs only. Anyone know if this still holds true? I'd like to try tomorrow, but don't want to be out of luck if they don't have rush on Fridays.
How I wish I could find myself a copy of that 90s version. That production always tops the list of shows I would kill to go back in time to see (granted, it's not that far back).
Rant about the 2013 TONY nominations here Apr 30

A little bummed about Jim Norton and Alan Cumming being overlooked, but overall pretty pleased with the nominations. I guess I need to see Kinky Boots now. I'm just pleased that something got more noms than Matilda.
Mr. Smith Goes to Washington as a Musical. Mar 15

It's such a great film that I would hate to see it done poorly. I've never really envisioned it as a musical, but if I did, the only songwriting team I can imagine doing it would be Harnick and Bock.

"I could, too. In the end, whatever Douglas Carter Beane has perpetrated on this show, R & H's score for Cinderella remains heavenly, manna for theatregoers lost in a wilderness of pap and tripe like Book of Mormon and Once. And to think that some pathetic, benighted soul here has proclaimed R & H's score inferior to such things. "
I'm with you on that (mostly), After Eight. If only R&H always had at least one show running on Broadway. I finally watched the original Cinderella broadcast

I was also back tonight looking for changes, but only noted the same as After Eight above. It's still too long and Act II especially feels bloated. So many of the jokes still don't work. Many of the numbers, especially the trunk numbers, are met with polite applause at best. That said, the high points are so high (for me) that I think it's worth the price of admission. I could watch "Impossible" and its transformations as well as "Ten Minutes Ago" over and over again.
Streep 'confirmed' as The Witch in WOODS film Feb 1

"Truly, I'm more concerned with the casting of the Baker and his wife. Those two are the heart of the show and a bad choice can throw the whole show out of whack."
I'm with you, ComingUpRoses. Keep Dennis O'Hare far away from this project. And Hugh Jackman for that matter.
