Roles synonymous with an actor BUT didn’t win the Tony  Aug 5 2020, 03:41:14 PM
I think it is actually surprising that Julie Andrews did not win a Tony for Eliza, of course I know politics and narratives are different every season. And that’s not to disparage Judy Holliday’s winning performance, which I’m not familiar with— but My Fair Lady is such a beloved and classic musical and Julie’s original Broadway performance has been mythologized into a giant.

I wish the Tonys would just give her a damn honorary one, anyway. 1996 was a million years ago. Julie graciously


Great and (dare I say) important Audra interview  Jul 27 2020, 12:56:19 PM
I just love Audra.

Naya Rivera presumed dead  Jul 13 2020, 05:35:53 PM
What a terrible, terrible tragedy. A mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend gone too soon. May she rest in peace.

From the Ventura County Sheriff:

“Happening now: A body has been found at Lake Piru this morning. The recovery is in progress. A news conference will take place at 2 pm at the lake.”

Today also marks 7 years since the passing of Cory Monteith.

I rewatched some of Naya’s Glee performances today. She was such a talent that she went from playing Sue Sylvester’s henchwoman to being a full-fledged main cast member within a season. Rewatching her character Santana’s wedding to Brittany reminded me of how much joy the episode brought me in 2015, when we were still awaiting the Obergefell v Hodges decision. What wonderful light she brought to the lives of people she never even knew.

CATSNYrevival said: "The saddest part of this is an adult thinking that leaving a boat to go for a swim when you’re the only two people on board is a safe thing to do. That’s reckless."

I think the saddest part of this is that a person may have died.

I’m horrified.

I think you could say this of almost all Disney Princesses TM before the modern era. Certainly Adriana Caselotti (Snow White) and Ilene Woods (Cinderella). I think Mary Costs (Aurora) had

I thought Susan Egan looked lovely in that trailer for the 2018 production of BATB. I wish I could have seen it!

Hamilton Broadway Coming to Disney Plus July 3  May 12 2020, 08:43:49 AM

I wondered if this might happen. Disney’s been hurriedly pushing a lot of content onto Disney+ in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Why continue to sit on “Hamilton” when they could release it now to help retain current subscribers and earn new ones? Disney+ is just about the only thing they’ve got right now with the possibility of turning a profit.

Myself, I collect physical media so once I finished “The Imagineering Story,” I was done with Di


The Official Kennedy Center FOLLIES Thread  May 5 2020, 07:31:23 AM
I was a sophomore in high school when Follies made the trek from the Kennedy Center to Broadway. I was a theatre kid weaned on Disney and Rodgers and Hammerstein. I’d recently made the leap to Andrew Lloyd Webber, too. I read these forums often... it was a weird place (and still often is) where I was enraptured by stories and accounts of plays and performances I never would have a chance to see.

I kept reading about Sondheim. Sondheim, Sondheim, Sondheim. All the time with the Sondheim.


Patti LuPone didn't like 90th Birthday 'Ladies who lunch'  May 2 2020, 06:29:52 PM
She *is* a *diva.* Her matter-of-fact speaking her mind attitude coupled with her incredible talent is why we’ll still be talking about her 50+ years in the future. She’ll never bore me.

That movie came out when I was a kid— it’s closer to 25 than 15.
