UGANDANS IN THE BOOK OF MORMON  Jun 9 2020, 04:31:13 PM
It’s called satire.

I’ve always thought of it as a statement on Western imperialism and condescension.

See Ann Harada’s recent statement on Avenue Q.

Repeat Attenders fan documentary premieres at DOC NYC  May 18 2020, 08:42:14 PM
My favorite part was Patti’s response to the mother at the stage door. While probably well-meaning, the mother seemed to have forgotten she was talking to a real person! How is someone saying, “I have no idea who you are...” supposed to make a person feel?? Heavens!!!

Frozen on Broadway - Where did they go wrong?  May 15 2020, 05:36:14 PM
I didn’t hate Frozen. I thought Caissie and Patti were excellent, and the design worked, even though it wasn’t my favorite.

I think the mediocre history of Frozen can be attributed to the obsession with SYNERGY that has characterized Disney the past several years. Schumacher once said in an interview that they specifically didn’t want the musical to diverge in look from the animated film (see the identical costumes and the Olaf puppet that looks like a plush you can buy at Disney World

Sigh. Sometimes this board is insufferable.

Hopefully Equity will soon require actors to include the name of the person they voted for in the last election in their bios. That way y’all can decide which shows you see each year!

WHEN WILL THEY ANNOUNCE  Apr 13 2020, 02:59:52 PM

I’m selfishly hoping for a return in late summer or early fall. Hopefully we can improve testing and contact tracing so as to let life resume as much as possible.

My family and I have a trip planned the weekend before Christmas. My brother’s first trip to the city! We’re all planning to see Harry Potter, mom and I are seeing Music Man, and I just bought a solo ticket to Company in the hopes that my drop in the bucket, among others, will help them return. So if the

Man this is awesome. Hope it sticks around long enough for me to see it in December. I know groups are on sale until then, so fingers crossed!

THE NOTEBOOK musical world premiere in Chicago this fall; Grief directing  Jan 29 2020, 02:42:36 PM
SouthernCakes, The Yard is their new, very versatile space that can accommodate several different scales of production and seating arrangements. I saw Macbeth there, and it wasn’t Phantom or Wicked scale but certainly could have played a Broadway house. The space has also housed The King’s Speech and the US premiere or SIX, as of late.

THE NOTEBOOK musical world premiere in Chicago this fall; Grief directing  Jan 29 2020, 02:29:15 PM
I’m intrigued. Will definitely be checking this out at Chicago Shakes. This doesn’t seem like typical Greif fare either, eh? Could be a very moving production.

WEST SIDE STORY (2019 Revival) Preview Thread  Dec 10 2019, 11:45:29 PM

Lots of talk of projections and video and I’m a bit unclear. Are there scenes acted offstage that are filmed and projected? Are the cameras “in” the story? What purpose does this serve dramatically (narratively) or aesthetically? Thanks!

Wow, that NYT article really lays bare the behind the scenes stuff! Lots can happen between now and June, so maybe another attractive theater will open up for Beetlejuice. At any rate, what a wonderful turnaround story it has! Glad Music Man officially has a home now.
