Yeah, it seems like Lin and the team really want this to be a summer theatrical event. I highly doubt they’d let it go straight to steaming.

It’ll certainly give Broadway a better shot of reopening sooner than later since he’ll actually take covid seriously.

Another one that comes to mind:
When a person's personality is personable,
He should not sit like a lump.
It's harder than a matador coercin' a bull
To try to get you off of your rump.
So single and attentive and attractive a man
Is everything a person could wish,
But turning off a person is the act of a man
Who likes to pull the hooks out of fish.
The whole verse is genius, but "personable" rhymed against &q

I think that “Stand with our brothers as they fight against tyranny/I know that Alexander Hamilton is here and he would rather not have this debate” is brilliant.

I'd 100% be interested in seeing this. I can't think a man besides Porter who I think could really pull it off, but he'd be phenomenal. I don't think it would necessarily add anything to the show contextually, but I don't think it needs to. It would be an interesting take with a very talented performer.

Once. I thought it seemed like a total snooze fest. I only went because someone ended up not being able to use their ticket at the last minute and they gave it to me. I totally fell in love with the show. Such a lovely evening.

TOS was my first thought as well. Super bare bones and I’m not convinced that any of the cast commanded a very high salary.

This is much more realistic and I'm glad they've made this change official. Of course, it's still not guaranteed, but I have much more hope that these dates will be able to happen.

Unfortunately, I wouldn’t be surprised if this announcement is followed by more shows announcing that they won’t be reopening (or opening at all). Although another delay was expected and inevitable, a formal announcement may be the final straw for some.

Kimberly - “straight play” is a very common term for non-musical works and there is nothing wrong with using it. It’s been used for a long time and has no offensive connotations. Ignore those who are questioning it - their lack of knowledge is showing.
As far as your question goes, I would suggest looking into the works of George Kaufman, Neil Simon, Moss Hart, and Thornton Wilder. These would be a good starting place. If you’re allowed to do classical work, Shakespeare has a lot of gr

It doesn't matter if she doesn't personally agree with them on social issues. She's still supporting and enabling them. Whatever her reasons for these contributions are, they're going towards oppression, hate, and fascism. There's no excuse.
I have no desire to tell other people what to do - spend your time and money how you wish - but I will no longer be supporting any project that she is part of. She's shown that she doesn't care about the community s

This would also mean that Roger and Benny are now gay or bisexual, which is another layer that I’m sure Larson never intended. I’m a gay man myself and I always love seeing more LGBT stories in media, but this is a change that I don’t think is necessary. Rent isn’t a story about gay people, it’s a story about people from many different walks of life which includes gay people. Yes, the gay community was devastated by the AIDS epidemic and that cannot be ignored or forgotten, but non-LGBT-i

I am interested in seeing the movie, but as expressed above, I don’t have a household of people to watch with and can’t justify spending 30 bucks on a movie for just me. I understand why Disney is going this route and I’m sure they’ll see success with it, it’s just a hefty price tag for me. I want to see it but not badly enough to shell out that cash, especially when I already pay for the streaming service every month. I’ll wait on this one.
