| Theater in Seattle Sep 30
2014, 01:30:36 PM|
There is a lot of theatre in my hometown. From regional houses like Village Theatre, 5th Avenue and the Rep, to mid-range houses like Book-It and ArtsWest to a bunch of small fringe companies doing everything from classics to brand new experimental and site-specific works. October is also Arts Crush month, when free events abound (too bad you missed the fringe festival a couple of weeks ago.) So if you want to go beyond the Equity houses, your choices will be plentiful in October.

Dang. I see the show in two weeks in Seattle and was totally looking forward to seeing Gavin.

Anyone watching Season 2 on Logo? Season 1 was great, and Season 2 is topping it. The last episode had a cameo by none other than Elaine Paige playing herself.

The show is in a place and time. I see no need to change the character because the inspiration for it has died.

No idea if it's true or not, but that was my first thought when Idina sang from Funny Girl at the top of Glee on Tuesday.
| Harvery Fierstein as Tevye? May 27
2010, 05:25:12 PM|
Interesting. I saw it last night in Seattle - because of Harvey, so I was expecting to see Harvey. And that's what I got. I thought he was great, though the mugging was a bit much a few times. As far as the rest of the production, I was thoroughly disappointed.

A sign of the times - people have lost touch with the "edit" button in their brain and feel that everything and anything is ok to put out there: on bww, facebook, twitter, a blog ...
I wonder if people would be more careful when posting here on bww if they weren't safely posting under an alias.

I guess I should revisit the dvd. It was given to me a few years ago and I was terribly bored.

I too have been reluctant about another movie-to-stage show, but last night's Spotlight sold the show. The songs we heard were excellent, their excitement about the show was genuine, the creative team is a dream team indeed, and the great cast. They did say Kerry Butler is in the show, but she was not at the Spotlight last night.
I only wish Norbert had done another song.

Wishing the folks at Sunday a great opening tonight! Looking forward to seeing it again next week.

this mostly young cast has a crucial quality that seemed to me mostly missing when I saw the original New York cast of Bob Avian?s 2006 Broadway revival on which this tour was based:
Something to prove.
I saw the tour in Seattle, and thought it was better than the Broadway show too, but couldn't put my finger why, and that is exactly why.

No tour. At least that's what all the publicity says.

I had the good fortune to be invited to the final piano only (though there was percussion) dress rehearsal. This is the same revival that played London and New York, but with a Seattle-centric cast, except for Hugh Panaro who plays George.
This production is simply astounding. Hugh Panaro is paired perfectly with Billie Wildrick, and the entire supporting cast is just as good. The projections blew my mind. I did not quite understand what people meant when they described them. I find it

Let me get this straight - in WSS you are able to suspend disbelief that gang members break into song and dance, A LOT of dance, but not they might have buff bodies?
