| Hamilton Broadway Coming to Disney Plus July 3 May 12
2020, 09:08:55 AM|
I think this presents the perfect opportunity for Disney+ to experiment with an idea...
A pay-per-view stream.
So, this is something that Disney does with their ESPN+ service where they sell premium events on a pay-per-view basis. A stream of a highly touted ongoing Broadway show definitely falls into this category. If Disney were to offer access to subscribers to this content for an additional fee, I have no doubt that people STILL wouldn't balk. As stated, the cheapest ticke

Speaking of actors from the tour reprising their roles on Broadway, I would LOVE to see Emmy Raver-Lampman return to Broadway as Angelica. Have been watching Umbrella Academy on Netflix and she is amazing!!

@Miles I saw no TKTS insignia on the guy holding the clipboard. It, in fact, was a blue jackwt. The woman wasn't holding a clipboard. She had a beanie, was rather short, with glasses and grey hair. Sucks that apparently nothing can be done.

Been a while, but I figured I'd post here about something that happened to me today at TKTS. I was in the Times Square area with my sister after meeting some family for brunch. Brunch finished around 1, so we figured we'd head over to TKTS to see what was available for a matinee. When we arrived there, We were seeing what was available and saw that The Cher Show was available. We have wanted to see this show so, when someone asked what we were thinking of seeing and I honestly replied that we we

Well, with HBO seemingly entering the TV musical stage...
Maybe they will try to do something like CABARET next.

FWIW Love Never Dies has posted an idea of their tour schedule on their site:
Taking a look at the gaps, it wouldn't surprise me if there are stops in DC (after Baltimore) either Philadelphia or Boston (after Providence), and Chicago ( before or after Minneapolis).

By my judgement, Emma has a rather nice singing voice. I also have no problem with the CG as, according to an article I read in EW, they reasreaslly did some unique work in ensuring the Beast is able to emote.

I have considered myself very skeptical of this film at the start. That being said, the more I have seen, I consider myself cautiously optimistic about this film. There really remains 2 big concerns about this film and it revolves around the same character: the Beast. Despite everything, we do not know how well Dan Stevens can sing. I would love to go wityh the logic that surely there was plenty of competition for the role, including those that can sing but I've also heard Condon zeroed o
| Sunset Boulevard cast Nov 15

As much as I would love to see American actors, in the role, allow me to play devil's advocate, as well as include some fact checking. The all British cast for The Play... is a strictly limited engagement, and for a very brief time. The same goes with Sunset's THREE actors (Let's not forget the star is an American). Sweeney has already announced that American actors will replace their British counterparts and I'd imagine the same will go for the TWO foreign actors in Saigon if
| ANASTASIA Great Casting Announced Nov 10
2016, 05:09:16 PM|
Actually, iif you look at the bracketed year next to Anastasia, it's 2016. This could just be Playbill referencing the Hartford cast while, despite listing the Broadhurst, not updating for Broadway until complete cast is announced or it gets closer to starting performances.

Allow me to point out that just because the recent London production ad certain changes from the original does not necessarily mean the Broadway production will be identical. It's possible that the creative team may have decided to switch things up. Case in point, the 25th anniversary PHANTOM tour here.
| Current Phantom cast Aug 18
2016, 09:13:37 AM|
RE: Phantom in Bryant Park. Yes, that was Laird Mackintosh who sang the role of the Phantom. James Barbour, who IMHO is the best Phantom I've ever seen, could not do the concert due to Phantom having a Thursday matinee.
RE: Christine alternate schedule. I believe that it's Monday and Saturday matinee. I saw the alternate, Rachel Eskenazi-Gold, and she was superb!!
| How did James Barbour Do as the New Phantom? Mar 20
2015, 08:23:27 PM|
Hey folks. Don't normally post here but figured I'd chime in. Have been to see Barbour as the Phantom at the Majestic. In my opinion, this is his best role yet and judging from his social media posts, he seems to be enjoying it. fwiw, I saw the show Thurs and there is a photo in the Playbill of him in Phantom garb. Quite nice.

PTOPhan, this should answer your question as to how it was the Y/K Phantom never reached Broadway.

**whoops didn't realize it was Menken & Schwartz** Speaking of which, I saw Stephen Schwartz yesterday. When I told him my excitement for the show, he stated, rather enthusiastically, that he had just come from a meeting. Fingers crossed for more official news soon!!!

I remember reading an article where it was stated he was involved in the workshops in Dec/Jan so I don't see why not.
