I assume she comes from some kind of moneyed background, since many people wouldn't leave a secure, salarie
“Using common sense and the image shared of the stage, I wouldn't expect the show to be fully staged. It looks tiny and with 117 people on the stage, there won’t be a lot of moving around. I would love to be proven wrong, but how do you fit that many people, on a tiny stage, without just standing there? ”
I take it you’ve never seen a show at the Delacorte? Specifically a Public Works show? The Delacorte is not Tiny by any means...

I’ve always wondered why Equity didn’t have an associate member option, like SDC does. I’m an associate member of SDC so I can take non union work, but only sign SDC contracts when working with Equity Actors and Stage Managers. I know there is the EMC program— but that’s simply to earn points to join the union as an option outside of needing a contract to do so.
I have plenty of friends who’ve had consistent work on non-eq tours and regional/Summer Stock productions; and then ge

WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!...Lenk is ABSOLUTELY THE WORST CHOICE for a role that is written for a very New York City man/woman!!...i know you all loved Katrina's work in The Bands Visit, but honestly is she right for this role?...NO NO NO...please stop these rumors and pure speculation...let's just wait and see who is
Every time this thread is bumped I’m hoping there’s a new casting announcement for this! I don’t remember the last time I’ve anticipated the announcement of a show’s casting like I am with this show!
With the rumors mentioned in this thread about who will be Bobbie (Tony Winner in the last 5 years) I can see any of them being an inspired choice for the role; yet all so different. Jessie seems the most obvious choice and she would be fantastic
Problem with links in posts Aug 11

I have the same issue on my iPhone X. I have to press down on any links and utilize 3D Touch to open link in a browser window. This is with links to other sources or even within Broadwayworld, such as the broadway Grosses. It’s been like this for months.
However, whenever I get an alert update for a new news story in the app and I click close when it pops up, it brings me to the article in the app taking me away from what I’m actually reading here....

I agree with those who have suggested that Miranda should be a non Singing role. She’d be much more powerful and intimidating if she simply had strong book scenes and presence without breaking into song. For example: The biggest problem (IMHO) with LaChiusa’s BERNARDA ALBA is giving the titular character songs. The songs he wrote for the Matriarch let us in to her psyche and allow us to empathize with the character when we shouldn’t. She would have been much more terrifying if she didn’t hav

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Ron is supposed to be based on Jerry Lanning.
The past two weeks episodes have been the best of the whole mini series. Special shout outs to Minkie Spiro for Directing and Ike Holter for writing the episode— the best written and directed episode to date.
An Assistant Director/Choreographer is there to assist the creative they work for on a number of things from getting coffee/lunch to writing down their bosses notes; working as a liaison between their boss and the others working on the production, etc. the Job duties can vary based on the project and the director/choreographer they work for. There job is usually done once the show opens.
An Associates job usually continues on past opening night. They will be
Maybe someone here will remember what article I’m talking about, but a few years ago I remember reading a piece where a group of industry people formulated a list of the greatest musicals ever written (on paper). I don’t remember where Gypsy landed on the list— I believe it was # 3, IIRC— with Guys and Dolls taking the #1 spot, Fiddler at # 2, and WSS was, I believe, #4 ( which was lower than many anticipated, but Laurent’s cheesy Jett dialogue knocked it do

^ There were a few positive mentions about Butz in the reviews I read. Sara Holdren had some nice things to say about his performance, just not the gushing love letters she gave Ambrose and HPP. Speaking of, I’m really loving Holdren’s reviews for Vulture. A director and recent graduate of Yale School of Dra
