Kelli, Brian and Treat  Nov 28 2019, 05:47:26 AM

I guess it means i won't be able to save up some money by cutting back on NY theatre trips after all.  Kelli and Brian in one show!   I'm in!

Agree about Aaron Tveit in Next to Normal, and will add the costume designer for Aladdin, Gregg Barnes.

Most beautiful weddings in a show?  Oct 21 2019, 02:54:14 AM

I initially read the title question as asking which shows had the largest number of beautiful weddings in them, and was struggling to think of any show with even more than 1 wedding in it.  After reading the replies, I now feel silly.  :)


James Snyder:  Aug 19 2019, 04:18:47 AM

He really is an incredible singer.  Thank you for the links.  I wish i could have seen him in either of those productions.

Here is a link to snippets from Soliloquy from Goodspeed's 2012 Carousel production.  I still dream of a cast recording to capture his amazing performance.

They both wrote and starred (as the title role) in "The Other Josh Cohen".

Why Are So Many Broadway Shows Closing: Katherine Steele: YouTube  Jul 22 2019, 05:43:06 PM

She really does have almost blindingly-white teeth. 

Audience Having a Bad Time?  Jul 21 2019, 11:04:01 AM

Other than clapping *after* songs and after scenes and laughing when things are funny, I'm not sure that the audience should be showing more enthusiasm.  Any time that people are so enthusiastic that they feel they have to start screaming and applauding *over* a performer who is *still performing* just to show how excited they are, they prevent equally excited but less narcissistic theatre-goers from hearing the end of the song that they were so looking forward to hearing.  

Hammerstein grandson on Oklahoma!  Jul 11 2019, 10:34:57 AM

Islander_fan, what makes you feel like Billy's behaviour is glossed over in Carousel?

Not only does Carrie immediately urge Julie to leave him the first time she finds out about it, but she also tells Julie that she is better off with Billy dead, and Julie *agrees* with her.  Having the character's wife and her best friend agree that she is better off with him dead is quite the opposite of glossing over his behaviour!

Tell your friend to avoid Sweeney Todd/A Little Priest.


Neil Diamond Musical!!!  Jul 3 2019, 12:38:21 AM

Some part of me feels like I have already had my Neil Diamond musical, in the form of The Other Josh Cohen ("Neil Life is Better Than Real Life", etc.).   I know that it was not his music in that show, but i loved the show so much that I don't feel like I need to see another musical featuring Neil Diamond in some way, as it might not live up to the happy memories from Josh Cohen.

Now if they were to posthumously get permission from Neil Simon's estate to use

Show-Score Cuts Critics  Jul 3 2019, 12:29:11 AM

I use the show-score website fairly often in planning my New York trips, but not for the reviews, from critics, audience, or otherwise.  It is the only site that i have found that gives running times for all of the shows listed there, which include Off-Broadway as well as Broadway (maybe other categories also).  I find that useful in figuring out, for example, which show to schedule at 7 or 8 if i want to go see a concert at 9:30 at 54 Below afterward on one of the evenings, or to s

BWAY actors in unexpected places  Jun 15 2019, 11:50:18 PM

I loved Patti Lupone's performance as the rabbi on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, singing "Remember That We Suffered".

Accessible Restroom at Walter Kerr  Jun 9 2019, 01:10:21 AM

Disability and use of accessible facilities is by self-identification.  If you don't feel able to use stairs in your "super-preggo" state, then that is your call, and it is fine to use the accessible washroom if you need it.  Unfortunately, contrary to what an optimist on here said, sometimes people (arseholes) do pass judgment on people with invisible disabilities, but they do not need to be listened to.  And your situation won't be invisible anyway.  I&

DEH Flops in Toronto  May 23 2019, 11:53:22 PM

I believe that Billy Elliott and War Horse both also ran for over a year in their Toronto sit-down productions in fairly recent memory (last 10 years or so).

DEH Flops in Toronto  May 23 2019, 10:26:54 AM

Come From Away is still going strong, but i am curious if the massive advance hype for DEH hurt it here?  CFA's hype grew organically as people watched the show during its pre-Broadway run and raved about it.  DEH was massively hyped before it ever arrived here, which may have raised expectations to unsustainably high levels. 

To the poster who was surprised that teens and 20-somethings are not filling the seats, i have been noticing in local cabarets/musical theatre

Independence Day performances  May 21 2019, 09:56:38 PM

According to this site,

there are 5 evening shows that night - Gary, Ink, Hillary and Clinton, Lear, and In The Green (new musical at the Lincoln Centre).   I always check that site to see if shows are taking place at any odd times/unusual slots.

Beet juice

Tootsie rolls

anything "en flambe" (for both Burn This and Torch Song)?

alternatively, blackened seafood for Burn This?

So is it okay for audience members to sing along during musicals?  May 16 2019, 07:37:59 PM

I think you raised a good point here, and i would even carry your analogy further.  I think singing along is not just like cooking alongside the chef in a restaurant.  It is more like going t

Broadway in Everyday Life?  May 14 2019, 10:12:37 AM

Whenever i have to deal with someone cruel, the fiddler quote about the rabbi's proper blessing for the tsar comes to mind:  "God bless and keep the tsar...far away from us."
