Man Urinates on Carpet at Bella Bella Oct 29

While this reminds me so much of the Ripley Grier pooper and the Betrayal masturbator, I don’t think I’ll be so quick to point and laugh at this one. The fact that this man has been described as elderly makes me think that... maybe he didn’t have complete control over what he was doing, and was too ashamed to acknowledge it.
Then again I could be wrong, and he could’ve just done it out of entitlement, but I don’t think I’m as quick to laugh as I was last time.
Ahh congrats! I would have gone in person if I could have gotten out of work, haha.
LOL that’s exactly why I went today. I’ve been avoiding the other drawings just cause I’m a good 40+ minutes away from Manhattan but I had the day off today and I figured other people would be in work/school so I went down. It was still PACKED downtown, though I’m sure not as packed as the lotteries over the weekend were. They have out an insane amount of ticket
Mistakes on cast albums Aug 25

Not a cast recording per se, but in the proshot of Jekyll and Hyde, during “Alive (Reprise)”, Hasselhoff sings the words “What a feeling of be so alive” as he pours Holy Water (?) on the Bishop. Honestly, Hasselhoffs performance in that song is so bad that it might as well be considered a mistake in itself.
Songs That Sound An Awful Lot Like Other Songs Jun 23

A little off-topic because it’s an entire show rather than just a song, but the plot of Hadestown is almost identical to the first act of the obscure Schmidt/Jones flop “Celebration” (which, in my opinion, is severely ahead of its time and is due for a revival while Jones is still around to possibly make some revisions to the book).
I... Really don't like that song. It fits the sound of Back to the Future very well, but something about it just seems so... Off to me. Other people have pointed out the shoddy lyrics but honestly I think it's something other than that as well.
I'm usually fine with musicals adapted from movies (especially in comparison to other people on this board) but damn I really don't have any interest in this show. And Back to the Future is my favorite movie, so that's saying
Seeing this thread pop up made me very excited for a moment
I only moved to New York last year, and had seen maybe about only 10 Broadway shows prior to that, so I don't have a huge amount of live theatre I've seen, but I already feel like Ferryman is going to be one of those plays that I remember seeing for the rest of my life. Saw it with the original cast (on second preview, no less) and the ori
Shorts in the theater Jun 11

The short answer? Yes, at least in my opinion. HOWEVER, I DID get lottery tickets to see Burn This a few weeks ago, and didn’t have time to go home and change into a more formal outfit before the show (was dressed in shorts and a t-shirt while visiting a friend in the city- did NOT want to make an hour train ride there and back just to throw on some khakis). While I’m sure it was fine I did feel woefully underdressed the entire time.

If they are offended by it, they think no one else should get to experience it. Everyone gets a platform, and it's so obnoxious. Do they ever experience joy or happiness?

Hi! Gen Z here. Happy to answer you
2019 Tony Snubs Jun 10

Nothing really surprised me this year! Which I guess was both a good and a bad thing (made for a slightly less exciting night, but also means that I think what needed to be rewarded was rewarded).
That said, I don’t think I can point to any real snubs. There were a few where the person I was rooting for didn’t win, but I felt that the winner was still a strong and valid choice. I was rooting for Amber to win Best Supporting; however, Ali Stroker still definitely deserved the role as wel
Ferryman vs Oklahoma Jun 6

I’d definitely go for Ferryman. Personal preference of plays over musicals aside, I found The Ferryman to be one of the most thrilling nights of theatre I’ve experienced in my (admittedly pretty short) life. I loved Oklahoma too, but at the very least that’s running through January with the possibility to be extended further, so you could potentially see that on another trip.
Social media policy Jun 6
2019, 12:12:17 PM
I work with a theatre company that very obviously isn’t Broadway-sized (it’s also non-equity), and we’ve had to crack down on social media usage a lot during our past few productions. A lot of it came from the fact that cast members were using incomplete and unfinished aspects of the show to promote it (i.e. videos of newly-learned choreography, videos taken during rehearsals, etc.). The biggest problem we had was when cast members shared videos of the Act One finale of one of our productions- w
