Nick Cordero Theatre  Jul 7 2020, 08:03:33 PM

RIP Nick Cordero  Jul 7 2020, 08:01:43 PM

I’m so so sad about this.  Like many others, I joined Amanda at 6pm EST almost everyday to Live Your Life.  I truly hoped he would be able to get to the point to see his wife and son again, for both him and for them.  I saw Nick in A Bronx Tale, Bullets and the character we all hated in Waitress, Earl.  He was outstanding in all of them and his music and singing outside of his theater performances was also outstanding.

Rest in Peace, Nick.  You certainly


Older theatre fans: what's your opinion on new Broadway?  Jun 8 2020, 10:52:15 PM

 Don’t feel that way at all.  I feel the entire cast did a wonderful job.



Older theatre fans: what's your opinion on new Broadway?  Jun 8 2020, 08:17:30 PM

I really liked Nice Work If You Can Get It a few years back because of many reasons, Gershwin, a fantastic orchestra, great cast and ensemble, comedy, costumes and dancing.  It had all the elements of an old fashioned Broadway musical.  Yes, even an overture.  It’s probably the last show I saw that reminded me of old Broadway.  Probably not the cup of tea of younger fans but I loved it.  



Older theatre fans: what's your opinion on new Broadway?  Jun 7 2020, 11:11:28 PM

Jarathen hit on many points for me.  I truly dislike the jukebox musicals with the exception of Beautiful and Jersey Boys which I thought were beautifully wrapped in great books as well as great music.  Most of them seem more appropriate for Vegas than Broadway.

I also miss the days when musicals were original works and great new plays were being written and produced specifically for theater.  I can do without the Disney productions and a lot of the pop culture

It’s a shame how they handled this situation.  It’s not like they wouldn’t make the money back and more when Broadway reopens.  I’m glad you finally got your credit.  



NYT Poll Shows One Hurdle to Reopening Broadway: Fear of Jerks  May 26 2020, 06:33:11 PM

Totally agree.  I’ve already had the virus and have the antibody but will still not take the risk because of the behavior (or lack of) my fellow Americans.  People are being way too cavalier about reopening too soon and I don’t trust that people who have not been infected themselves or their loved ones, seem to feel this was overhyped by the media.  



Getting it off my chest  May 21 2020, 05:25:51 AM

I feel for you and all of us who appreciate the role that theater plays in enriching our lives.  My philosophy for this time is that everything we hold important to us, whatever those things are, will be enriched and enhanced even more when we are able to gather freely again.  In the meantime, keep those special experiences alive by watching whatever recordings, Playbills, ticket stubs, etc are available and try and remember how that show or moment made you feel.  Whenever thin

Smash Returns  May 21 2020, 05:18:59 AM

It would be so hard after such a long separation to recreate the same magic as season 1. That, for me, was one of the most incredible seasons of any TV show ever.  Season 2 was the polar opposite of that. I’m a firm believer that you can’t home again.  It’s never the same.  During this seclusion period, I’ve really enjoyed rewatching this amazing show and the incredibly talented creative performers.

No Jordan, that’s the same number they’ve had people calling for weeks and no one answers and we get a message saying someone will contact us.  I don’t call after business hours.  If you think this is acceptable business practice that’s fine but most of us affected don’t think it is. &nb

So then I imagine you're also fine when other racistsuse terms like ":how ghetto of them"?

Sorry, I’ve never heard that term used when referring to entitled rich people.

You notice there is no mention of refund.  They provide a phone # that’s virtually impossible to get through in the hopes you get frustrated and accept the exchange.

I wonder if SJP and Matthew Broderick are aware of what is going on with ticket refunds? She seems very fan friendly on Instagram and I doubt she'd approve of something like this happening with a show with her name attached to it.

I am practically crying over this.  I have followed Amanda’s IG everyday and feel like I know this family.  Nick has a long road ahead but a small glimmer of improvement is a start.  So inspiring,,



Ryan Murphy's HOLLYWOOD on Netflix  May 12 2020, 05:53:34 PM

As someone who is older than the average poster, I think knowing a little more of the history of this era made it a bit more difficult to watch at times.  I stopped at the awards episode but will continue to watch.  The mixture of reality and fiction made this harder for me to buy into .  I would have liked reality or fiction instead. And what was up with Rock Hudson’s teeth? I have seen many of Rocks movies and his teeth were not like that.

There are several posts in this thread about this. My show date has passed and I have not been contacted. I've also tried calling and emailing the theater. The phone linehas a message and then immediate
