Nick Cordero Theatre  Jul 7 2020, 07:56:06 PM
Right. Perhaps a portrait with a plaque hung in the Longacre (though his connection to that theatre is still less tangible than that of the Brooks Atkinson, where he played more performances)

A case of when genuine good intentions just don’t get it right. There are other ways to honor him, a scholarship perhaps. A theater isn’t the be all, end all for legacies.

Cirque goes bankrupt  Jul 1 2020, 12:05:33 PM
There’s 6 Cirque shows in Vegas and dozens of non-Cirque shows. Other entertainment will fill the void, but again, these conversations are very premature

Why would The Lehman trilogy look for another theatre?  Jun 30 2020, 04:54:56 PM
It ain’t that they’re looking for a new one, it’s that their old one ain’t available

How long until a Madonna Jukebox Musical  Jun 24 2020, 09:23:19 AM
I’m still dying for a film biopic starring Florence Pugh as Madonna

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang remake?  Jun 19 2020, 12:16:34 PM
There was chat circa 2008 if a remake that never came to fruition. I have to admit, I loved the broadway production.

Is the APOLLO finally going to be # 42?  Jun 5 2020, 02:00:23 PM
We need to stop thinking of “Broadway” as the be all end all for the arts. This would not make sense logistically and would end a lot of the great programming the Apollo already puts on.

The Old Vic’s A MONSTER CALLS Streams Today at 2pm  Jun 5 2020, 12:25:13 PM
Had tickets to see this at KenCen. I’ll give it a watch this weekend, I very much enjoy the film

Most Surprising Broadway Actor  May 29 2020, 11:44:35 AM
Had trouble computing Cyndi Lauper in Tbreepenny Opera years back. Can’t say I remember much from the production

Also, the Betty Boop musical has yet to see the light of day

Re: Treasure Island. That production was supposed to play the Belasco in 07 or 08

Why didn’t Kelsey Grammar switch over and play Albin as originally promoted?  May 14 2020, 11:29:28 AM
^Nope. Tambor was playing George’s, not Albin. Was thinking about this revival the other day and was wondering why it was so loved by many. I remember enjoying it at the time, but I forget I saw it honestly.

Revivals playing the same theatre as the original productions  May 10 2020, 10:42:33 PM
Ah, I was under the impression the Tyne revival opened and stayed at the Marquis

Revivals playing the same theatre as the original productions  May 10 2020, 04:29:56 PM

The original West Side Story planed the Broadway for a bit in between runs at the Winter Garden. Not sure why it transferred for a short while and then transferred back

 

Gypsy on the other hand seems to have the opposite problem. The show seems to have played every major music house in its many revivals, but never repeats.

“Streaming films are NOT eligible: you have to prove the film intended to have a theater release and couldn't because of the pandemic. If it gets released when theatres are already open then it needs a theater release”.

Wrong. Rules have changed this year https://apnews.com/25f66bdc77d6e280b5b5b3b990849d03

Kiss Of The Spiderwoman Revival?  May 5 2020, 08:11:19 PM
Or we can multitask those thoughts

Park Avenue Armory not refunding service fees  May 5 2020, 04:01:21 PM
Unfortunately, the service was you pressing “purchase tickets” rather than going to the box office, not the event occurring.

Park Avenue Armory not refunding service fees  May 5 2020, 03:27:28 PM
You did pay for the service of buying tickets via an online platform, that costs money to upkeep. Service fees aren’t worthless charges. Sometimes steep? Yes, but they aren’t made up.
