People age out of roles, regardless of their gender identity. It happens. You move on.
Mike Nichols tried to get a Gypsy adaptation off the ground back in the early millennium, after Angels in America. Oddly enough, he was pitching it with Meryl in mind. That floundered, of course. I cannot remember if it was prior to the Nichols/Streep project or after, but Catherine Zeta-Jones was considered by some production team after winning her Oscar for Chicago. Arthur Laurents quickly vetoed t
The HFPA has always been a mess. They usually try to predict what will win the Oscar, but this year, I really doubt that happens. Bohemian Rhapsody was atrocious, not to mention it was directed by a pedophile.
A Star is Born and Roma are the two films that have hit all of the precursors, and most importantly, the guilds, eg: SAG, PGA, DGA, and BAFTA to boot. Best Picture is between those two. And with the year that Bradley Cooper had, I cannot see him going home empty handed. Bes
I was underwhelmed. Urie was too clown-like for me. Supporting cast was...uneven. The third part, also known as Act II in this production, is the only noteworthy portion of the show. Ruehl is tremendous. Urie has moments of greatness with her, but quickly resorts back to being a goof ball. A little too much Barney Fife and not enough pathos.
I was prepared to be wowed, so perhaps I set myself up for disappointment.

Barbara's version of Gypsy will probably become greenlit if both agree to it especially with them both being in the public eye with Star is Born."
1. Gaga is not supporting.
2. Gypsy ain’t happenin’.

1. If you are referring to Olivia Colman in THE FAVOURITE: she should go Supporting if she or her studio want a win. She’s terrific, but will not win in Lead. She could and likely will pass for supporting, as others with more screen time in the recent years haved dropped down to win.
2. This is Cooper’s best performance to date. He will win something on Oscar night, whether it is Picture, Director or Actor is unknown. He will not go home empty handed for his efforts. Even though Gaga g

If you weren’t able to see it in person, absolutely go see the screening. Having seen both, nothing could ever match experiencing the production and that performance live. However, you owe it to yourself as a theatre goer to watch in a movie theater if you are able to.
I have to agree with Joe Mantello when he says that Laurie can do ANYTHING. She is on fire right now. Regardless of whether a Roseanne-less show is created in the next few months, she and the entire cast are still getting paid for the next season that never was.
Saw the original production with the original cast two times. Paid for the first late in previews, and was given a comp for round two a few months after LaChanze won. I thought the whole thing was overblown and just not a good adaptation. I saw the revival once, I adored Erivo, but left thinking: "This is the best production of that sh*tty musical I will ever see."
Word on the street is that Mantello is assembling Lane and Metcalf for a revival. It is an absolute rumor at this point, but I would not at all be surprised if it came to fruition, especially with Metcalf's calendar being clear with the cancellation of her tv show. She won three Emmys in a row, so let's do the same with Tonys?
