Thomas Kail, For Some Reason, Is Remaking FIDDLER ON THE ROOF  May 28 2020, 11:54:03 PM

Then Disney should of just paid the 75 million for the Lincoln Center archival right? /eyeroll

P.S. Can we stop referring to Kail as the director of the HAMILTON film? He directed the Broadway production that was captured for eventualrelease. He did not adapt HAMILTON for a movie production.There's a big difference. Kail preserved his Broadway production, he did not adapt it for a motion picture version.

But he has directed the filmed version of the Broadway production, which is not the same as directing the Broadway production.

Shira Haas & Amit Rahav for Motel & Tzeitel, right?

The more I think about it, the more I'm wondering if this will be some rebooted/updated modern spin with a diverse cast (as terrible as that sounds).  What other reason would there be to remake this film?

I LOVE this comment on the Deadline article:
"How are they going to do this with a diverse cast?"

^More technical and impressive, doesn't mean better.

The original Les Mis design made the show.  Just look at the abomination of the revival's design to tell you that.

Judy Kuhn sang the title song, terrifically. 

In a recent Stars in the House, Judy & Seth actually discuss how she screwed up the performance (she was off from the prerecorded music).



Is it time for broadway actors to find a new skill/career path?  May 24 2020, 07:32:22 PM

Yes, there will be a mass exodus from the profession, but it extends FAR past just actors.  There are exponentially more people not onstage that are out of work.

B&B was recently mentioned as still in development in the NYT's article about Frozen's closing.

I'm still waiting for the Diane Warren catalogue musical.

Jarethan said: "There have actually been two big budget productions of Marilyn."

Also don't forget the third.  "Marilyn! The New Musical" played at the Paris in Las Vegas in 2018 staring Ruby Lewis (of Broadway's Paramour).  It closed after 23 performances.  Further solidifying that this property...just doesn't work

They should rep Smash and Bombshell, like Harry Potter Part 1 & 2!

This was posted on the old covid thread that got deleted.  I think he was one of the early cases?

I had to check to make sure this wasn't one of those April Fools articles.
