The new tagline certainly is evocative of the "this is a feel everything musical" Times review pull quote that Next to Normal used heavily in its advertising.
(Also: "this is a show you FEEL" What, do audience members get a book of different textured fabrics to brush along to the music? It's more like a tagline for a kid's museum than a musical)

It seemed as though other shows announced a spring reopening “if it’s safe” and MM just announced a spring opening. Perhaps a “come at your own risk” situation as long as they get the okay from the state?

As AEA AGMA SM says, this is a fraudulent and not uncommon practice. It’s less that Equity was not interested in going after offenders- they often did- and it’s more that it was difficult to do so with the resources they had. And now they’ve laid off a substantial portion of their staff.
And yes, I’m sure the fact that both AEA and Equity League (which administers health and pension benefits for AEA members) now have almost no income is causing them to crack down on longstanding or outs

Looks like the old Times Square is rapidly disappearing. Nothing more now than a race to see what comes down next.

Considering how often it seems musical movies are put into development hell (here's looking at you, Wicked), this one was indeed incredibly speedy- especially when considering The Prom was hardly a hit to begin with.
Can't imagine this will be an awards contender, aside from maybe a token Streep nomination at the Globes. It's pretty lightweight, solid B-grade material.

And furthermore, Rapp had indeed told many people about the incident over the intervening years. News sources were able confirm that he told others as long ago as 1990. He also had been told by a lawyer that it was not worth pursuing charges. In 2001, The Advocate even redacted Spacey's name in a piece they ran with Rapp in which he described the incident.
Rapp didn't change his stance or his story- it was the world that changed.
And yes, Spacey has many accusers. Rapp is mer

But at age 14 he thought he could handle men by putting himself deliberately in a situation to get this attention and then realized he was in over his head. Now, today, he’s doing it again just go home Anthony and stay there for once."
And women shouldn’t walk alone at night orwear revealing clothing! They think they can handle the situation, but they can’t.

The limits of live performance really risk making sci-fi stories look really hokey and campy. Little Shop of Horrors leans into this, but it's of course a comedy and sendup of B movies.
There was a small off-off-off Broadway play a few years back called Spaceman, which was a one-woman show about the first astronaut to journey to Mars. It was set entirely in her space capsule, depicted in a realistic size, and zero-g was simulated remarkably well through the actor's body movement and c

I love the score, and find the way it gives big memorable numbers to featured characters that don't have a lot of bearing on the plot kind of charming.
Considering the dearth of women composers on Broadway that continues to this day, it's odd that Carol Hall feels so overlooked for creating this score. Perhaps she was eclipsed by Dolly Parton putting such a stamp on "Hard Candy Christmas" and the material generally.
