4th of July poll: Favorite American History Theater That's NOT Hamilton?  Jul 7 2020, 11:00:17 AM
Sidney Kingsley's play "The Patriots" is one I like, and in the wake of "Hamilton" it has an interesting place as a dramatization of how Hamilton was previously seen... elitist and largely contemptuous of democracy, but still enough of a believer in America that he was willing to compromise with Jefferson to keep Aaron Burr out of the White House.

Sidney Kingsley's work in general has been unfairly overlooked, I think, because of how influential it was. Half of the shows on TV these day


Musicals that were announced but never materialised.  May 23 2020, 10:32:34 PM
Shelley Marcus was announced as writing the book for a musical based on the documentary "When We Were Kings", about the Muhammad Ali / George Foreman "Rumble in the Jungle" match in Zaire. David Sonenberg was the producer, and the show was supposed to workshop in spring 2019 ahead of a full stage premiere in 2020. Since it was announced in 2018, I have heard not a word about it.

The Music Man Revival post Jackman and Foster  Jan 21 2020, 10:31:49 AM
Go with Norm Lewis after Jackman is done. His recent performance in the role in DC was well received and it's a dream role for him.

In fact, as perfect as Hugh Jackman is as Harold Hill, I was a little disappointed at the announcement of the revival because it meant Norm Lewis's show wouldn't transfer.
