There's a workshop happening later this month and they are apparently still aiming for Broadway next season, according to Justin Guarini who is playing Prince Charming.
"They created this beautiful story about female empowerment and breaking free from the chains of a lot of the things that women have to deal with and have had to deal with throughout time....It is just a funny, touching, awesome show."

^Andrew Scott is the "Hot Priest" in Fleabag and could probably already sell tickets based on that alone.
Caught this tonight while in town for short visit. Went into it skeptical about whether I'd enjoy it, as I'm not a screaming diva fan. It way exceeded my expectations. The beginning and end are a bit rough (there was some kind of traffic jam in the choreography in the beginning where "Jane Seymour" had to scramble to get into place) but I thought each Queens' songs did a good job of differentiating each of them. My favorites were Ann Bol
Accomplished my goal of seeing this show while in town on other business, very glad I did. I did not read the spoilers going in, only knew there was some disagreement about whether it works. For me, it did. I think I understood what each character was intended to portray and why Mac chose the context. It's not going to be on my list of most favorite shows, but I was well entertained.
I adored Julie White's performance. No one has talked about her
Thank you, Fosse76. I feel more confident I'l be able to make this work. About the Brooklyn site, that's frustrating because when I looked up its hours, there was no indication it was closed. Now I see it is no longer on the TDF site list.
Thanks to all who responded. I figured TKTS in TImes Square would be busier than Brooklyn's and with my tight time-frame, might not work as well. I hadn't thought about using the app that way, so that was helpful.
I can't do rush per se as I will be unable to go to the box office until almost curtain's up. But, I get the broader point.
I am hoping the canny denizens of this board will have some insights on the best way to accomplish my goal of attending at least a couple of Broadway shows while I'm in Brooklyn later this week at an event with an unpredictable schedule. On Thursday and Friday, I may or may not have my evenings free, but I won't know until late in the day each day. Since I don't know, I can't take the chance of buying tickets until maybe an hour, maybe less, before a show. I
There was a 29 hour reading of this project this week, and if you check out Cortney Reed and Justin Guarini's Instagram stories, maybe you can sleuth out who all is participating. It sounds like they are presenting it to Spears herself tonight?
I have frequently walked from a hotel in River North to the theater district and back late at night, and never felt afraid. If you stick to the main streets, there will be plenty of other people out and about at all times. I have also stayed in the loop and walked to and from Union Station late at night with no problems. I am not particularly brave, yet have never had any issues walking about in those areas.
Palmer House is okay and the rate is pretty low right n
"revisal of this lesser known work that has a real reason to exist in 2017"
Yes, I think it does have a reason to exist in 2017, when you look at the real life person and discover that the musical reduced her to one pop culture moment. This article explains why the real Molly Brown wa
Thought it was something on Broadway but I guess that explains why I couldn't find any reports of injured actors. I'm impressed that Justin jumped in and learned a completely new musical in two days to help out his local theater company; I just can't muster up much interest in this particular musical.
Based on this Instagram post, Justin Guarini is "emergency" replacing an actor who was injured, starting tomorrow night. Is the music in the video recognizable or does anyone have any ideas which musical?
justinguariniToday’s other office...headed for my favorite spot...upon where I shall act foolish while trying to learn a new musical in 10 hours so I can emergency replace an injured actor
Saw the tour stop in Louisville. Ware was Lola, Curt Hansen was Charlie, and Rose Hemingway was Lauren. I hadn't seen it before, so can't compare to others who have played various roles. With the exception of Hemingway, who was giving a Broadway caliber effort, I was underwhelmed by the other two. Ware just seemed to need to take it up one notch. He wasn't bad, but it felt at times like he wasn't fully reaching for it. As for Hansen, my frie
Part of this doesn't seem to be be new news but I couldn't find anything on it using Search. Burgess has been writing a Broadway musical version of The Preacher's Wife, and Loretta Devine just said on The Chew that she is workshopping it with him.
I found references to his writing it dating back to at least 2015, and a September workshop is mentioned in
