Are you me? Haha, I keep a list of composers' upcoming projects too. Here are some of the bigger names I follow:
Adam Guettel Days of Wine and Roses Millions The Invisible Man Dave Malloy Moby-Dick (2019 Boston premiere) Henriad The Happiness of Fish David Yazbek The Princess Bride (In an interview for Tootsie, he said Princess Bride i
I'm glad finally someone brought this up. It started since the latest launch of the new design. The font looks way too slim on Android phone (in Chrome, I don't use the app), it's barely readable, it hurts my eyes. iPhone looks fine, laptop looks fine too, just Android.
No, none of the rush people moved to the SRO line. For some reason, the SRO line today was quite short. First person showed up right before 2pm. But by 7pm there were about 10 people. I think all of us got in.
SomethingPeculiar said: "David Yazbek's overtures are usually an original theme not found anywhere else in the show. Which Ibelieve(correct me if I'm wrong) comes out of the opera tradition?"
Overture is one of the reasons why I love David Yazbek's works. But both Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Toosie's overtures feature songs from the shows. The Full Monty seems to fit your description. I don't remember about Women on the Verge th
I'm visiting Chicago in May as well. Shows I'll be seeing are: - Next to Normal (David Cromer) - Queen of the Mist - A rare production of the LaChiusa musical. I'm a LaChiusa fan and was impressed with Firebrand's Caroline or Change last year. I planned this trip around it. But be warned that it might not be your taste if you haven't seen/listened to any of his works. You can give the Off-Broadway cast recording a listen first. - SIX - the London s
I was excited about this when the news came out. I think it might be the first non-English film adaptation of mainstream western musicals. Some friends reminded me of the Korean Story of My Life, but that's not a film adaptation of the show, it's a film about a fictional production of the musical.
Anyhow, I haven't seen it yet. They only showed it in a few cities in south east Asia. I've been waiting for an online or DVD release. That said, the onlin
Broadway Backstory - Great quality, like pro documentaries on the creative process of some musicals in the past decade or so. Tons of interviews from the creative teams and the original cast. Highly recommend!
Behind the Curtains - Lower production value, but light fun conversation on lesser known, or "under appreciated" shows. Plus they have interviews with some fascinating theatre people you wouldn't find anywhere else.
Just stumbled upon a casting call for the coming season. The answers are: - Assassins - A Chorus Line - Escaped Alone (play by Caryl Churchill) - Gun And Powder (musical by Ross Baum & Angelica Cheri) - Easy Women Smoking Loose Cigarettes (play by Dani Stoller) - The Cake (play by Bekah Brunstetter) - Camille Claudel (musical by Frank Wildhorn & Nan Knighton) - Hair A great season for musicals! I'm excited!
