I think a lot of people, for better or worse, have a sort of mental disconnect between the church and the choir because the choir is so prolific and has such a positive reputation and the church has such a negative one. Most people don't know the technicalities of who is allowed to be in the choir and the decisions going on behind the scenes because for the most part they just seem like a really good, really big choir. A performer to get invited to sing with such a prestigious c
I liked the show and have been glad to see that it's improving in sales, which made me optimistic, but I think this was predictable for a long time. Jan 5 is a pretty popular closing time, and it's a little before they'd have to find replacements for the cast (the performers contracts expire end of February) so it makes sense they'd cut their losses then to avoid having to sign new people on for a show that would only last a few months more at least. I also think it will do we
I work with 4th-5th graders and I actually think Music Man Jr would be a good pick. That's actually what my own elementary school did when I was in 5th grade and I found it very manageable. I played Harold Hill and had no problem memorizing lines - you just have to make sure the kids you give speaking parts to actually want to be involved and will do the work. It also has good featured ensemble roles, and can accommodate a big cast. It's also a good lesson in different types of
I've thought Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog would be an amazing musical for a while, but I haven't seen any buzz about adapting it and although it has a cult following, most people have never heard of it.
I was at the performance of Bella Bella last night, watching the show (I thought it was pretty good, although not Harvey's best work) when an old man gets up part way through the show, literally pees on the carpet, and then just walks back to his seat and watches the rest of the show. I honestly thought I must have been hallucinating, but someone next to me at stage door asked Harvey about it and he confirmed that it did in fact happen, and he tweeted about it too.

Ricky Gervais as Harold Hill? Now that's a disaster I'd pay serious money to see.
Really surprised by Tootsie's numbers. I absolutely love the show, but I thought it was as good as dead after labor day with downward trends. What happened that caused such a boost? I know their cast album signing was on Tuesday, but I'd be surprised if that had such a boost in sales considering those sorts of things tend to target people who already know about the show.
I'm also surprised Come From Away didn't do better (I mean they still did good) considering it
I follow Sarah Stiles' understudy (her name is Leslie Donna Flesner and she's amazing) on Instagram and just today she posted that tonight was going to be her last time performing as Sandy for a while, so after today, you should expect Sarah Stiles to be there.

I was in one of the can-can seats (I would only recommend them if you don't mind neck pain), and his emotionlessness made Come What May one of the most anti-climatic moments in the show. There were times he tried to force out some tears but failed miserably. The fact that Karen Olivo was acting and beltingher heartout, with Firework being one of t
