It's not in New York, but the University of Evansville has a really awesome Theatre Management program and the department itself is ranked really high nationally. They do all sorts of different things and you're placed in a practicum freshman year. Plus, the business school where you'd take those sorts of classes is nationally ranked. Most of my friends who were Theatre Management majors got awesome internship placements at places like La Jolla Playhouse. I wasn't a part of UE
People definitely tend to be a bit more dressed up for evening shows in general.
And it's true that people get really dressed up for regional theatre. Heck, even the students at my university typically dress a little nicer when they see the productions on our campus. (And I've had people visit my campus and tell me to my face that the majority of the students on campus "look like crap all the time" during any given campus day)
It seems like some of y'all have seen this video and developed your casting ideas accordingly.
Even though it's being buzzed about now, the physical production is still a few years away. It's likely that a few of the people we suggest here will be too old, too "famous," etc., by the time casting begins. Regardless, I think that Disney would be
I have a Spotify Premium subscription and tend to use it over the Music app on my iPhone and iPad in most cases. In fact, I haven't even signed up for Apple Music yet because I'm already satisfied with what I get from Spotify.
Maybe it's just a matter of luck, but I find a lot of great cast recordings and composers' compilation albums on Spotify that I probably wouldn't have discovered otherwise. They have a pretty wide scope of availability - Broadway, Off-Broadway, Lond
These have been making the rounds on Tumblr lately and I smile every time I see them on my dashboard. I love the accompanying text found beneath the slideshow on the link Tag provided. I feel that it strengthens the perspective of the photos. Pasting below in case you missed it:
“The Fourth Wall” is a concept in dramatic theory, often used by actors to signify the invisible stage wall where the audience is seated to
I figured I would enjoy James Corden and Emily Blunt's performances the most, and I wasn't wrong. They were hands-down my favorites in this cast. Chris Pine was also a standout, and the audience I was part of seemed to only really react to his scenes (especially "Agony"). Meryl was great - I couldn't see another A-lister doing this role justice. I wanted to come out of the film adoring Anna Kendrick, too, but felt underwhelmed with her performance
John Cameron Mitchell to Join HEDWIG on Broadway for 8 Weeks! Nov 20

Forgive me because this is kind of a silly question, but would the 8-week engagement end on March 11 or March 18? I didn't see an ending date in that article and I'm not sure whether January 21 or 28 would be considered "week 1."

Ok, so this Jim Parsons idea seems a bit off to me. I fear he would look too awkward and out-of-place for a rock musical. So many people see him only as Sheldon Cooper, and, from what I've seen of his work outside The Big Bang Theory, he's either too similar to Cooper on a personal level or relies too heavily on the "schtick" he's developed with that particular role to really make other characters believable.
Jeremy Renner seems like a pretty cool choice. Casting P!nk as Yitzhak (with a
What is your career/major Jul 8

I'm currently about to start my final (i.e. graduate) year in a 5-year BS/MS program in Health Services Administration with minors in Public Health, Music, and Business.
I'm planning to either get a job in my field after graduation, or working in entertainment PR or theatre administration. I may try to go back to school in a few years and get a Master's in PR, Media Management, or something more business-y (accounting, finance, management, or marketing)
Why all the hate for TARZAN & LITTLE MERMAID? Aug 15

Both shows seemed pretty rushed. If I recall correctly, there wasn't a lot of time between the initial announcements and first stage appearance for both of these shows. Compare that to NEWSIES, which was initially announced 3+ years prior to its first appearance on stage. Granted, it was initially intended to be developed for licensing purposes only, but the statement still stands.
Like many folks have already said, the main trouble with TLM was the lackluster technical aspects. The div
