NBC was stupid to greenlight this from the start. You cannot do HAIR on a network that censors the majority of the show. Let Netflix get in the game of producing these theatre events.
NBC should do 1776. Or GHOST. Or SISTER ACT. Or OKLAHOMA. Or RAGTIME.

The taker fell through. They are FREE if anyone can pick them up. Any other suggestions on how to donate? Otherwise I'm ready to put in the recycling bin, which would be a shame!!
Getting rid of 300+ Playbills Jan 12

I'm purging a lot of my possessions and have a collection of Playbills. 300+ from Broadway and off-Broadway productions ranging from 2010-2019. All mostly OBCs. There might be one or two Opening Night ones. Anyone interested in acquiring it? I'm looking to get rid of ALL of them at once. You'd have to pick them up from a Manhattan location. Some are in binders, some in small boxes. Everything is placed into one large (and heavy!) printer box. Commutable via subway if you use a dolly, otherwise a

First, you have to recognize that not-for-profit off-Broadway productions are a completely different situation than commercial off-Broadway productions. NFP productions continually will be produced as long as the theatre companies exist. Commercial productions declined in quantity because the risk became too great for investors.
The first problem is geography. Immediately after 9/11, many tourists were scared to come to New York. Those that did mainly stayed in tourist areas. If a theat

Honestly, I'd skip all of those. The four best shows on Broadway this season are all plays!

New WICKED Commercial Dec 2

Saw a new TV commercial for WICKED this evening during SNL. Looked it up on YouTube and was surprised to find that it was uploaded a month ago. I guess it makes sense as that was around their anniversary date. Still, I find it an impressive ad for TV. I love the musical arrangement.
Speaking of TV ads, there are a few more that I noticed have changed since they opened.
KING KONG's ad sends mixed messages to me. It shows the cool puppet, but
What new shows to see Nov 13

Definitely THE FERRYMAN and TORCH SONG for plays. For musicals...out of all the new ones running right now this season, I'd say only THE PROM is worth your dollars. The more exciting choices are likely to open in the Spring. Stick to the plays, for now!
Craig's contributions to the entertainment industry has renewed a mainstream interest in the American musical theatre genre. Without the work of he and his producing partner Neil Meron, the nation would not have had the exposure to the modern musical that it does today. From CHICAGO to HAIRSPRAY to the live TV musicals, SMASH, the Oscars, and more...his legacy has had an incredible impact. It's tragic that he will not be able to continue his projects that are still in the works, but k
