NJGUY - I still envy you.

It was probably a fascinating theatrical event.

My all-time favorite flop - that I never saw.

Where are touring sets currently at?  Sep 10 2020, 08:11:27 PM

HogansHero said: "this is a good time to mention again that there are no rules. There is no monolith that decides how to deal with things. Does the original question really expect an answer? Now if one asked "where is the set that was in x venue, there could be an answer. But to the question posed, no answer. We seem to have a disproportionately high number of this type of question nowadays. Maybe it is one of the many covid 19 symptoms that is only now being discovered.&qu

The Wiz Revival (1984 AND when will there be another?)  Aug 30 2020, 08:08:57 PM
There was also a production that played - I think - the Beacon Theatre in '93 that also had a brief run. Don't know any more details.

His performance of "Come Up To My Place" in Parade was sheer brilliance.

SOME LIKE IT HOT Musical to Have World Premiere in Chicago in 2021  Jul 30 2020, 08:09:51 PM
It's evidently been removed from the Broadway in Chicago website.

Ralph Macchio in How To Succeed  Jul 30 2020, 07:45:24 PM
Didn't see him in the tour - eventhough it played Chicago - but I did see him on Broadway in Cuba and his Teddy Bear with Robert de Niro

Did Kevin Anderson get fired from Sunset Blvd with Patti Lupone?  Jul 12 2020, 09:52:47 AM
Yes, I saw Ron Bohmer in the ill-fated tour; he was excellent.
But he was magnificent in the 1992 tour of Aspects of Love.

Someone above mentioned seeing Bryan Batt understudy and I'm jealous (and I've tried to find "audio" of that for years). John Barrowman had his fans, did anyone manage to see him? I can't say I've been too impressed by what I've found. Anyone see Ron Bohmer on the ill fated tour?

Ken Hill Phantom  Jul 7 2020, 07:33:31 PM
I probably wouldn't see it again, but I'm happy I saw it in SF in 1988.
The late Kevin Gray and the late Merwin Foard were both in the cast.

I too am curious about The Minutes.

If the Goodman closes, my life's over.

The Mercury Theatre in Chicago will not reopen.  Jun 17 2020, 07:37:01 PM

This is just the beginning of the domino effect in Chicago.
Just wait.

The only time I was in the Mercury was for Bailiwick Reps production of Parade in 2004.

It's been almost 40 years, but I did see Tintypes there in November 1980.
My only time inside the Golden.

Show Boat revival?  May 26 2020, 07:53:50 PM

Call_me_jorge said: "I’d hope the 1994 revival was the last time the show will be on broadway. Despite loving the music, it’s a very dated show and of it’s time. I think the show would get grilled by critics and the media alike, if a revival would happen today."


Have you ever seen Show Boat on stage?

Show Boat revival?  May 26 2020, 07:51:20 PM

CarlosAlberto said: "Interesting that both the 1983 and 1994 revivals played the very same theater. The 1983 revival played the theater when it was still known by itsoriginal name: Uris. When the 1994 played the theater it had already been re-named to the Gershwin.
And that '83 production was thoroughly sublime.

In fact, the theater was re-named the Gershwin near the end of the '83 revival's run. The theater was re-named on June 5, 1983 and the show

Someone in a Tree2 said: "To answer Jarathen's question about any other exceptional TONY years-- I'd mention the 1971 edition, the 25th anniversary TONY year, that included tributes to all 25 Best Musical winners up to that point, often featuring their original stars' greatest performances. I'll never forget seeing Betty Bacall launching into "Welcome to the Theater", only to cut herself off mid-song to announce the best musical winner that year-- which of c
