In my experience, no. Nutcracker is NYCB’s biggest money-maker; they even suspend their under-30 discount prices for the run.

I have to throw Laura Benanti in Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown into the mix. The night I saw it, she couldn’t breathe without getting a laugh. We were putty in her hands.

Russell Harvey plays the Duke of Cornwall. He signs most of his lines but also speaks. Michael Arden is credited as his Aide. He signs the spoken lines to the Duke and speaks his lines for the other actors/audience. Regan signs a few lines to him, and Oswald signs and speaks his lines while addressing Cornwall.

Saw this in original run at the Vineyard. Loved it.
Even though the theater was well air conditioned, my body started sweating as we reached the end of act three. Once I left, I realized that it was because I was anticipating another event like what ended act one.

Caught the show Wednesday night. For a three hour play, the pacing is very swift, and I was left feeling like I could watch another two hours.
The three leads (Alan Cumming, Ronald Peet, and Charlayne Woodward) are well matched and delivering fierce, powerful work. Also loved the three ladies who made up the gospel choir. They sound incredible and maintain a solid presence throughout.
I loved how ambiguous the ending was and how I’m still turning over this play five days late

Were there any speeches or anything, given it was Bernadette's final performance?"
No speeches. But the love on that stage-for the show and its star-were apparent in every moment. A spectacular afternoon.

Who knows if she and her team would want to go from Albee to Albee and it was also on Broadway so recently, but I so want Metcalf to tackle Martha.

After enduring the live broadcast of the Young Vic Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, I’m dying to see Nina take on Maggie the Cat.

I too will be there January 20th. Bernadette in Gypsy at the Shubert was my first Broadway musical, and I love this production so much I’ve already gone three times.
I anticipate being overjoyed and overwhelmed and over par!

I have to provide a contrary voice and say I was very moved by it and genuinely enjoyed it, and I despise Peter Pan.

I'm trying to remember...did they film Anika Noni Rose singing "Ain't No Party" or not? If the new footage includes that....I will at least look for it clipped on YouTube.

| Stars reviving their iconic roles. Jun 27

I don't think many would call these her "iconic roles," but I see no reason Streep couldn't take another go at Arkadina or Mother Courage.
