Sorry to revive a 6 year-old thread, but I've been thinking about this a lot with COVID and the upcoming Jewish High Holidays, where we remember those we have lost. I'd love to hear more of your ideas for songs about loss - of life, of jobs, of normalcy, of health. Thanks in advance.

2020, 07:29:47 AM|
I'd love to see her play Helen in an all Black production of Fun Home with Cynthia Erivo as Alison that's never going to happen - I'd be happy with her singing "Days and Days" in concert, though.
| Poll: Which play has used Zoom best? Aug 3

I propose Significant Other. I thought it was extremely well executed and proves that the play would work terrifically as a movie. I see it as an indie or Netflix/Hulu original type.

Missing theatre? I'm selling Playbills! Some are signed, some are rare (I've got a DEH Off-Broadway and a bunch of Fun Home Off-Broadway). All proceeds (after shipping costs) will be donated to The Okra Project. Please take a look, share widely, and contact me at the email listed in the "contact info" tab. I have spent the past 2 hours going through most of what's in my apartment - I have about 100 more to sort

Seconding La Masseria. Their gnocchi in particular is delicious. Try not to fill up on the breadsticks, which are made with magic pixie dust.

Six. I can't stop listening to it. I plan on seeing the show when it comes to Broadway next year, but until then, it's at the top of my list.

GreasedLightning said: "I believe the rule, and correct me if I’m wrong, is that the audience must be notified one of three ways: a Playbill insert, an announcement or the understudy board in the lobby of a theater. Whether they do one, two or all three is up to the production but I believe not all three are necessary.
In this case, I assume it was listed on the digital understudy board in the lobby/box office of the Hirschfeld, which can be easy to miss in the hustl

Semi-related question. I've always been curious...the people who win dozens of pairs of tickets...how much money do they spend? Are they just that lucky.and win 24 times on 24 tries, or do they spend hundreds and hundreds (or thousands?)? I spent $40 for 48 tickets and only won once. I'm not judging - I know it's all for charity. I'm just curious, and when I've politely posed the question to them directly, I've never gotten an answer.

I believe women. There are many men in the theatre industry (I can think of a few names off the top of my head) who are known in the community for having sexually assaulted & raped women. No one has come out with allegations against them, and it's a shame that they will continue to work in this industry. It's all super hush hush. I'm not naming any names, although I do expect this post to be deleted anyway. It really sucks that these predators are still working, and the delete

Jenn Colella is Elizabeth in If/Then. It happened once, and I'm still upset I wasn't there. There was an audio of "Always Starting Over" somewhere online, but it must have been taken down, as I can't find it.

| Hadestown Rush/SRO Updates May 31
2019, 02:59:25 PM|
Went this morning- got there around 5:30 am. There were about 8 people in front of me, including 2 people in a tent who had camped out since midnight. By 10 am, there were over 30 people. The box office only sold 6 tickets (I overheard that they were all singles, meaning pairs didn’t get to sit together). So 3 people walked away with tickets. It looks like you have to get there by 2 am for tickets - eek! There were no SRO tickets being sold at 10 am, by the way.
| Much Ado About Nothing (Shakespeare in the Park) May 22
2019, 06:44:24 PM|
Saw it last night - it's long. The first act was 2 hours, and the whole thing ended after 11 (the second act was about 45 minutes). I saw Much Ado with Lily Rabe & Hamish Linklater ~5 years ago at the Delacorte, and the pacing was a lot better in that production. Granted this was the first preview, but I don't think they can do that much restructuring.
