Yeah on a serious note I do not think they've loaded out yet. Frozen did it's loadout a few months ago and there were definitely quite a few pictures of it happening on social media, I'm sure we would've seen something by now.

It's not like these are all one-off's through, they have an entire theatre division so I don't particularly see them just dropping that entire division off the face of the earth and never touching Broadway again, especially if independent theatre investors are able to contribute a l

I haven't seen it so I can't comment on how applicable it is to the "space" theme but based on it's reception up to this point in time, it definitely seems like Back to the Future (which is going to the West End soon, I think?) is charting a new path for this sort of thing, especially in the sci-fi department. Based on the limited amount of press that's out for the show right now, the tech looks awesome.

Not a Shubert house, but David Korins posted some photos on Instagram yesterday of him and some crew walking around the Doubtfire set at the Sondheim Theatre. I know it's not that black and white and varies depending on each situation but I suppose there has to have been some sort of occupancy at these theatres off and on again.

Every ounce of common sense tells me this is completely impractical and impossible... but the idea of a show with such little buzz and advances going to record and release a proshot just to capitalize on the demand people currently have for more professionally recorded shows during quarantine is just... immaculate. If this comes out on Netflix I can only imagine it'd drum up some serious press right now. I know lots of people were comparing it to Anastasia or&

From an audience perspective, Rudin is invaluable to Broadway. He is one of the few commercial producers who regularlytakes risks on projects withartistic promise, despite not being surefire hits. He never fails to assemble impressive teams of artists to elevate his shows. And in fact, his refined taste, and his keen ability to match artists with material,makes him one of the few producers who I'd consider something of a

Kamilah Forbes, the Apollo's executive director, recently talked on a podcast called CI to Eye (link to her episide, skip to 13:24 for this particular discussion...) about the Apollo's programming and the pressure they've gotten to join the other 41. She talks a bit about the natural "comparative" that exists between Broadway and the Apol

$6.3M is a crazy number!

I'm not familiar with Jay or the office in question, but that is a huge triumph and I congratulate him on a well-earned retirement. Thanks for the

While I do believe Mean Girls is likely to go, I'm not sure this is any indication of it. I'd sooner believe they got rid of the cast photos to stop promoting Sabrina Carpenter since she won't be in it even if it does reopen. Why would they paint the doors bright pink if they're co
