Home from tonight's show and this was as lovely a show as I could want. I would love a Broadway transfer, but understand from previous posts it may not make it. Will it get a cast recording? I would be very sad never to hear those songs again. Just beautiful.
I saw the Astoria production yesterday and thought it was terrific. I'd never seen the show before, and it seems to pop up a lot on people's top 10 shows. It runs for a couple/few weeks and it's worth the trip to Queens.
That was lovely... thank you for posting Get Up. Reading the posts it seems earlier Signature productions haven't moved to NY. Anyone know why? I'm debating taking the 5 hour bus ride down and back to DC for this (I've never seen Passion), but would really prefer if it landed in my Broadway backyard. Any thoughts on that possibility? It's would be a lot of bus riding for 110 minutes -granted, that bit sounds like heaven.
I am with the minority here, because I saw it last night and thought it was wonderful. I felt the director caught that great place between light and dark with this play. I'd seen Joan before (at a small company downtown) and loved it but it was all dark. This production moves betweeen the dark and the light, and the major set design was a perfect reflection of it. And a shame for Rashad to have no chance at the Tony (because Glenda will get it), There was no hint of histeria in her
Although I didn't get everything, I really enjoyed this, and may go back for 2nd dip to fill in. Yes, it is Stoppard with his smarty-pants on, and like Invention of Love (where I didn't have a clue, but still knew it was beautiful) sometimes you just have to surrender to the smartest person in the room and go where he's going. How many playwrights can manage a play this rich, silly, sly and challenges you to keep up? IMO, not too many, and don't you wish there were
I agree Whizzer! I saw it just last week, and thought Rob McClure gave a terrific performance. He's 1 of those actors who feels perfectly sunk into the role, and you forget you're watching a play. A real pleasure.
