Hi im drew and i LOVE NYC and Broadway i go to a performing arts high school and major in Musical Theatre there. I go to NYC once every year and see about 8-10 broadway shows over a week! Some of my favorite shows are: Ragtime, Les Mis, Into the Woods, Sound of Music, Next to Normal, Evita, Miss Saigon, Follies, Hello Dolly, In the Heights, Phantom of the Opera, On the Record, Memphis, Once, Billy Elliot, and probably hundreds more!!!
Tootsie Is Closing Nov 11

Posted this in the real estate thread as well, but I remember reading on this board about the West End Joseph revival potentially transferring and wonder if this will indeed happen? Wonder if it will make a quick swoop in for this spring or hold off until fall? Huge fan of the show and Joseph would make a lot of sense size wise for this space as well, so would absolutely love to see this happen!

I remember reading rumors on this board about the Joseph revival from the West End transferring? Love Joseph and would very much like to see that happen, Marquis makes a lot of sense size wise for a theater as well.....
Best touring production you have ever seen? Oct 29
2019, 04:10:20 AM
Seconding both An American In Paris and Dear Evan Hansen. With AAIP, maybe it was because I hadn’t seen the broadway production and was going in rather cold, but I was utterly blown away. What an absolutely gorgeous, jaw dropping production. DEH, having seen both the OBC and the OTC, while the OBC nailed the acting, most of the cast was absolutely shot vocally. Whereas the tour casts vocals were absolutely pitch perfect, so glad most of them are transferring to Broadway, as I was quite surprised
Oklahoma! lottery Oct 14
2019, 12:06:11 PM
How long do you have to claim your tickets if you win? Unfortunately, my flight into the city tomorrow does not land until 3:30 and the lottery is stated as closing at 2:00 for evening shows. Will I still be able to claim my ticket if I win as soon as I land? If not, would I be able to explain my situation at the box office and see if they’d at least give me lotto loser or my original winning ticket? Or could someone PM me the lotto loser code just in case I’m not able to claim my ticket if I w
Anyone attending Carolee's first performance tonight? Anxious to hear reports! Also, if anyone happens to be at the first show, curious to see if they are selling any items with Carolee's name attached as they did with Betty and the other Dolly's as well. It seems as though her name is not being used on the playbill covers, which makes me wonder in regards to merch sales......
In regards to West End casting, truly hoping and pulling for Celinde Schoenmaker to be cast as Elsa. Looks and vocally spot on for the role. However, she is 30, so she is on the older side of the 18-30 age range.
Becoming Nancy Previews/Performances Atlanta Sep 7
2019, 12:42:27 AM
Havent seen a thread on this yet, previews for Becoming Nancy at the Alliance Theatre began tonight. Did anyone go? Post reviews here! Very anxious and excited to hear about this one!
I definitely agree the majority of this cast is quite underwhelming.... however...... if you don't know Solea Pfeiffer, you definitely should. Take a listen to her main songs from Songs For A New World. Breathtaking vocals. She will be a stunning Eva. Here's to hoping that an equally strong choice is made for Che....
Semi related- but according to Analisa Leaming's instagram story, Kristen Hahn and Nic Rouleau will depart the tour following tomorrow's performance. Any news or rumors as to who will replace them? In addition to any other cast members who will join for Carolee's run of the tour?
Curious to see if they will use Carolee's name above the title for her run? It will be quite upsetting if they don't.... I also find it interesting that there is no mention on the show's website of Betty's run ending after the Boston stop at the end of this month, and nothing stating Carolee will be taking over, as there was with Bette and Bernadette for the Broadway run. Additionally, all Carolee cities, have just listed the show's logo as part of their seasons, with no s
MOULIN ROUGE SRO UPDATES Aug 9
2019, 02:49:52 AM
I generally do not like to be a voice of “negative” or “complaining” commentary here, or come across as ungrateful, but come on. I know the two are vastly different shows, and in different theaters, but I truly hope they do not discontinue the SRO policy. To Kill A Mockingbird also has actors utilizing the aisles for the show and there was nothing unsafe about those actors walking around and entering behind us in the SRO section. Between a nearly impossible to win lottery, and an absolutely absu
HADESTOWN cast album - thoughts? Jul 26
2019, 06:49:09 PM
Has there been no details released as to a physical CD release for this album? I noticed only the digital version was listed on Amazon and can’t seem to find a physical copy listed anywhere else.
Moulin Rouge Previews Jul 26
2019, 06:47:00 PM
Any updates as to whether or not they began offering SRO for tonight’s show, being the first post opening?
Upcoming Waitress casting Jul 23
2019, 09:16:30 PM
I know a final return for Sara is the main rumor/idea being tossed around for closing but I do wonder if somehow the timeline could work that Alison could extend slightly, and then Jessica Vosk could come into the show for a short 2 month run to close out the show, after she finishes Becoming Nancy in Atlanta.
COMPANY eyeing a spring 2020 transfer at a Shubert theater Jun 30
2019, 12:29:32 PM
As much as I adore Laura Benanti, vocally alone, she is all wrong for Bobbie, as is evidenced by Rosalie Craig’s performance, Bobbi needs to have belting capabilities of which, as Laura herself has stated many times, she does not have. Count me among those who truly hopes Rosalie transfers or someone like SJB is cast.
THE CHER SHOW to launch national tour Jun 29
2019, 06:44:00 PM
I could definitely see both Michaela and Teal touring, with Dee Roscioli playing Star principally since she has already been standby for both Chicago and Broadway.
Moulin Rouge Previews Jun 29
2019, 02:46:40 PM
Curious if anyone knows if they will be doing any sort of SRO or rush for this? Assuming not since the lotto was already announced but thought I’d inquire.
Stephanie J. Block Cher Show Tony Performance Jun 9
2019, 01:35:07 PM
Have been seeing Dee Roscioli posting a lot of apparent Tony preparation for the shows Tony performance tonight, with an apparent absence of SJB? I assume shes just standing in for her for the rehearsals? Strange that Teal and Michaela have been present but not SJB? Any insight into this?
No Stephanie Torns has not left the cast. Whenever her stints as Jenna end, she returns to her ensemble track, playing Francine, and understudying Dawn and Jenna. Major props to her though, she's been with the show since its pre-Broadway run in Boston in 2015! At this point it does seem as though, she will be staying with the show until its inevitable closing (which as we all have speculated would not be surprising to see happen in the not too distant future.)
