I have to agree. I was extremely disappointed in how obvious the storytelling was, while how overwritten and underdeveloped the characters were - an endlessly stream of maladies doesn't mak
As well as contemporaneous accounts corroborated by others *at the time*. So much of that simply makes no sense if it’s all for money. Why tear your family apart if you’re going to file a lawsuit *a decade* later?
If you actually watch the doc, there are several points that have evidence beyond just their word, but corroborated evidence.
For instance, why would Safechuck tell his mother of the abuse 15 years ago, after sever bouts of anxiety and depression (which mirrored the same effects felt by Robeson, separate and apart), and cause pain for his family without even going public? And when you see the bomb that is set off in Robeson's family by him telling, Robeson would have to be psychopa
I'm bored by this refusal of one person here to even consider they may be wrong, actually study the evidence to see and act as if we've learned nothing about abuse in the last 2 years, let alone the last 15 since his trial.
Back to the subject, I suspect the estate is going to want to solider on because they want that cash. And let's face it, people (primarily tourists) will see it.
The real question for me is, how will the Bway community receive it? Will there
The documentary is deeply upsetting. And there are enough details told by the parents alone that set off many red flags (what grown man argues for 2 hours with a mom to take custody of a 7 yr old thousands of miles away in Australia?). To dismiss the allegations at this point is willful.
Sadly, I have zero doubt tourists will still see it. Hell, look at KING KONG.
My main wonder if the Broadway community. You saw how they even circled around the performers of KONG, defendi
I can't imagine she hasn't been offered many times. She probably would want something original rather than jukebox, so neither is happening. (She wrote music for a planned musical based on the life of vaudeville star Texas Guinan in the early 2000s, but abandoned it.)
There is, however, a Britney jukebox show coming down the pike.
Andremthefoozle said: "I had thought Sondheim had said in his Hat book (or elsewhere) that this was always Beth's song but in the original production had to be reassigned to Frank when the actress couldn't handle the number. In every subsequent recorded production, Beth has sung the song. So while Green can believe it a poor structural choice to have it be her first big event in the show, to make that a strike against Fiasco's work feels unwarranted and uninformed."<
I happen to agree with the review, but I cannot stand when critics are so presumptuous to pretend they understand music, or worse, an author's intentions:
"But “Merrily” was written when Mr. Sondheim was still mining the rich seam of his peak Broadway style. By the time he wrote “Into the Woods,” six years later, having reconsidered his threat to leave the theater entirely, he had adjusted his palette in response to cerebral new collaborators an
Kad said: "Disney granted the same sort of permission to the National Theater last year for Pinocchio. It's smart- instead of doing costly productions themselves, they are utilizing well-established and regarded theater companies to try more experimental artisticthings and build awareness."
Agreed. It's a win-win for them. If the production doesn't work, they didn't spend much money on developing it. And if it works, they can license it or move it.

Most of these names are too old. Certainly Meryl and Glenn are.
As for McCarthy, is definitely a question if she can sing it. She’s an incredible actress but this is against type for her.
I agree there doesn’t seem to be a ton of obvious choices that could also headline a film. (Colette would kill it but she probably couldn’t raise the funds.)
