Hello! I used to be more active on these boards but although I read them almost daily and have the page bookmarked, I rarely post unless I have something I have to get off my chest :)
I was working at Disney World in Orlando, Florida in the Disney College Program until March 14th. I was at work when Disney sent out a mass email saying all interns were being sent home and we had three days, til March 18th, to vacate our apartments (most of us live in Disney housing). There was shock, te
I've been trying to gather my thoughts on the film since I saw it Saturday night. I am a performer and have seen productions of CATS, and it's one of those shows I really want to be in eventually. I have seen the 1998 filmed-stage version as well.
I actually really liked a lot of the ideas in this, I think they could have realized them better though.
For example, Judi Dench doesn't appear until after Jennyanydots and Bustopher Jones perform, so how would
I believe Anna Magnani, who won an Oscar for her performance in this, did that strange type of dancing in the movie. I am sure Tomei was inspired by Magnani as we know Tomei is very proud of her Italian heritage. Maureen Stapleton also won a Tony for this role, so while it may be outdated, it was very popular in it's time.
For those who have seen her in Burn This- Do you think she is suited-well for Broadway or should she stick to TV/Movies? I've been a fan of hers for a long time and so excited to see her on Broadway but the reviews I've read have me worried about her future on the boards.
She is doing a Tony-winning role and got nominated for zero awards for it. :/ Despite her whole cast now being Tony nominees and the show up for Best Revival. (Interesting fact, Joan Allen originated the
She's been working on this project for awhile..I read she didn't want it to compete with Kinky Boots grosses so now that it's closed maybe this will start moving forward? I guess she talks about it at concerts and has played snippets of the music.
It says the music & lyrics are by Cyndi and Rob Hyman with a book by Kim Rosenstock.
I was just reading about the drama surrounding the rights for To Kill a Mockingbird last night and I think it is against Scott Rudin it wasn't nominated. It's a way to honor Christopher Sergel and his adaption.
Annette Bening didn't really deserve to be nominated. Her role has never been a standout before in previous revivals of "All My Sons" and she doesn't do anything special with it. This is a "welcome back" nomination (she hasn't been on Broa
sorry if this has been mentioned but I saw in an Interview that in the DC production Lydia's mother Emily was a character that appeared and had a song? can anyone comment on if this was bad or why it was cut? sounds like something from the movie that would actually be an interesting addition to flesh out the story. I mean if Lydia is going to the other side, why wouldn't she see/look for her mom?
I did not think Leslie Kritzer would be a contender, but she has been recognized by the Drama League, Drama Desk, and Outer Circle Critics, so she definitely could get in. I know she's never been nominated and has fans in the industry.
