This is Dear Evan Hansen. If the producers wanted to stunt cast, they could have gotten a much, much bigger name if they wanted to. There's no reason to call Jordan Fisher stunt casting.

I mean, acting, have you heard of it? Ben Platt looks nowhere as young as Jordan Fisher and still pulled out the role so well he won a Tony.

I highly doubt that anyone in a theatre would be grinding or pulverizing peanuts, because that would warrant it's own thread (and probably NYT article)

Hadestown cast album is horrid. I certainly don't understand how such poor representation of a show has made into the nominees (and I don't see it winning either)
ABC's ENCORE! Into the Woods with Kristen Bell streaming now Nov 17

I remember when this was first announced but I never got to watch it. Did they really produced a single episode (maybe it was meant to be a special rather than an episode) and stopped and then came back for Disney+ or they produced the whole season and decided not to air any of it after Into the Woods?

Random question about Broadway pits while we're kind of at it. This may sound silly, but do conductors and musicians use any sort of click track to keep tempo or is it completely set by the conductor?"
There are click tracks when it's absolutely necessary to play at a certain tempo (like recorded pa

I’ll also link the aforementioned review, written by a trans person, as I feel that’s better than me (as a cis person) explaining it. The use of "Being A Woman Is No Job For A Man" tagline in and outside the show is particularly noteworthy as that is word-for-word rhetoric that is freq
Hope and a Prayer to see my Broadway crush? Nov 11

Well, if he's not there you can always count on discovering another crush. Plus, you have more chances of seeing him if you go than if you don't go, afraid that he's not gonna be there.
Keep an open mind and have fun

Little Lotte from The Phantom of the Opera. Honestly I don't have a single reason to give why is that still in place. Change it for two book lines and voilá. Also, I'm 99%sure that at least 90% of the audience that has ever seen the show doesn't have a single idea of what Little Lotte is.

He would announce some changes that could actually make sense once I see the whole production but then people would be overly dramatic because of it, forgetting that maybe not everything has to be some drama espectacle to spice up their boring lives and I'd do such a hard eyeroll that my head wouldn't be able to hold to pressure and explode
And air that ridiculous contest on national television? Nah
An exhibition of a movie with live songs have been done with great success at the Hollywood Bowl. I don't see what there's to be weird about it. It's a fun twist on watching the movie we all know and love.
I never heard of that Hunchback event. Might as well watch it now before TLM. Thank you for sharing!

Even if Ben Platt was a Michael (he's really not), he could never be cast alongside Andrew Garfield. Big casting mismatch when they're supposed to be school friends.
