I do the Boston to NYC trip frequently for matinees. I don't use the bus, most frequently travel by train. I live in the Boston suburbs so I use the Rte 128/Westwood station. For me is so much easier than going downtown to South Station. It is a breeze to get in and out of and parking is always plentiful. On weekends, you can park really close to (literally within steps of) the station's entrance I've driven into that parking lot literally 5 minutes before the train wa
Saw this in Boston and absolutely loved it. I am not a rabid Talking Heads fan but certainly have always have enjoyed their music (and loved the seminal Stop Making Sense concert film) so even those only minimally aware of his music through his most popular songs (I think) will enjoy this as long as one remembers that 1) this is not a traditional concert and 2) Byrne is an idiosyncratic performance artist at heart and, artistically, is in his head a lot. That being said, the show
Susanswerphone said: "I haven't heard anything. But I did see the play. It's enjoyable enough. I can't imagine it making a serious run on Broadway. It could do well at Signature, the Public... Even before that it needs some work. The second act is long and meandering. Analisa Velez and John Scurti are both terrific!"
I agree with you. Though enjoyable, for me, in parts, I was more disappointing given the love letters it received by the local critics
For those of you interested in an ever so brief sneak peak/hint of what Jones will be like as Diana she joined Aaron Tveit and Jennifer Damiano on "Super Boy and the Invisible Girl" as part of the NYT TimesTalks honoring Michael Greif in October 2016, right before DEH opened on Broadway. The entire Talk (about 1 hour 15 minutes) is well worth listening to with a lot of great reflections by Greif (and in addition to the aforementioned, Ben Platt, Adam Chanler-Berat,
For all of you taking a deep dive into the cast recording, the below links to an Interesting NEW YORKER article on Baz Luhrmann's involvement as the recording's producer, especially in describing his coaxing performances from Tveit and Olivo in their joint numbers. So implicit, tt seems, is his desire to greatly improve upon the performances he inherited from Timbers. A bit of a subtle burn, I thought. After the recording, I wonder if Tveit and Olivo then went back to the

Was that really necessary? If anything one would say he’s successful on his ownin spite of “Daddy”. Steven Roth is a major Trump supporter, and certainly no friend to the arts. Jordancould easily have become another Jared Kushner but chose not to.
And might we not have Daryl Roth to thank for that? Though Jordan might have had daddy’
So looking forward to Jessie's TV fans showing up sans any theater etiquette just to see him nude, bringing with them their inappropriate and loud woo-hoos and tee-hees as if they are in their living room(exacerbated no doubt by their pre-show cocktails), ruining the play for others and pissing off the actors. You all know that will happen. Ugh. Have never seen a first class production of this play and really want to see it, but boy does this likely occur
Saloniki is a small, local fast casual serving, fresh, modern Greek cuisine and is fantastic. It is located in the Harvard Information Center with access by walking through the HIC from Mass Ave or from the street @ 24 Dunster St.
I have sat in nearly every section at ART and have never had a bad seat, though I understand everyone has their preferences and certain shows have special configurations that I have not experienced. I don't recall an instance of having to do a "
Would like to echo the enthusiasm expressed by others for this production of CAROLINE OR CHANGE. Was always so curious about this show and was not able to catch any performances in NY and, unfortunately, could not swing the trip to London to see the recent production. Had low expectations going in as I knew it was a difficult chamber-like piece. The singing and performances are uneven (and I think a few missteps exist in Kushner's work) but the young boy, Ben Choi-Harris as Noah, Ye
BrodyFosse123 said: "From a friend who's boyfriend worked on this production: based on the mixed to negative reviews plus the horrible ratings the broadcast received, FOX won't be releasing this on homevideo. Only the soundtrack recording was released.
Home-made excellent qualityDVDs of the broadcast are the closest you will get and are easily available for purchase online (for about $8) most notably on Etsy."

How really, really, lovely of SF to be so gracious. He just sang/dance/acted his tush off for two hours plus yet some classless and clueless stage door d**che thinks he/she is ALSO entitled to a post-show performance?
For those not able to get to this in NY or London or for whom remaining premium ticket costs in NY are prohibitive, please know that National Theater Live will be capturing and broadcasting it in UK in July 25 with additional dates to roll out after that (not yet announced as of yesterday). Yep, not the same as being there, but better than missing this seemingly singular production completely. For those of you who receive NTL emails, they have not yet announced it but it is on the websi

FYI National Theater Live captured both McKellen's 'King Lear" and Mirren's "The Audience." Depending on where you live"King Lear" is currently in rotation (Symphony Space this Fri night if
This quote from the NYT article does not exactly speak of a major overhaul some of us thought was needed--don't know if "many, many little" changes will do the trick, but we shall see:
"In an interview, the producers said the show is being revised somewhat after its last production. “We were quite happy with the work we did on our original musical, but you can always keep improving, and the changes we have made are many, many little ones that add up to a more s
I too mostly avoid the big tours, but Huntington and A.R.T are musts. Usually two or three shows each season at each of these companies are standouts. Just saw Cristofer's "Man In the Ring" directed (yay!) by Michael Greif at Huntington --though needs some further tweaking, it was quite the theatrical gift and I hope it has a future life --also hope others here in Boston got the chance to see it. Thoughts of those who saw it? Also loved "The Niceties" at Huntingt
