A motley crew of performers attempt to entertain the audience while under the increasing control of outside forces they cannot escape. The fourth wall is often broken, there are unfortunateerections, and the audience is made complicit in the mistreatment of several Jews."
Broadway Buddy said: "When I was watching Evan Hansen for the first time a couple weeks ago (same night as backfire which was scary) I was comparing it a lot with Be More Chill which I saw twice. They’re both about a high schooler who finds a way to get attention. "

It would be a great way to unite Hadestown fans and BMC fans, which comprised a lot of online feuding during Tony season this past year."
1. But exactly where does Lightning fit in with this? All BMC fans will automatically be Lightning fans?
ACL2006 said: "16-week limited engagement. I wonder if the entire tour cast will transfer?"
I wouldn’t be surprised. There were some cast members (pretty sure it was Sarah and James) who weren’t signed on for the final few shows, so their understudies were promoted to leads. When I heard the Broadway rumor that was a big factor in my mind.
LightsOut90 said: "by producing it on Broadway they can charge more for licensing rights when high schools and community/regional theaters want to do it in a few years. LITERALLY the only reason DISASTER went to Broadway a few years ago was for this reason."
That makes a lot of sense since Broadway Licensing seems pretty tight with them on Instagram. I’m only speculating but I’m inclined to believe there’s already a plan set up over there to license
VotePeron said: "Hadestown is beautiful and incredibly written. Be More Chill is second for me, as I feel the lyrics are stellar and as a whole has a contemporary musical theater sound that I love.
Other than that, I thought every other new score on broadway this season was a total dud. Off-Broadway was an embarrassment of riches though, with Rags Parkland Sings The Songs of the Future, Octet, We Are The Tigers, Shaina Taub’s Twelfth Night, and Secret Life of a Bees
I’m gonna say Best Score for sure since there’s so few originals (and it’s a pretty good score), but I really can’t think of anything else given the weak direction and low-budget design. Acting I can’t say I have a lot of faith in either. So if it does show up, I see it going the Be More Chill route, maybe with some more success thanks to the source material

Haha now I want an awkward father-son reunion between LT Luke and Hadestown Hermes.

Yeah so they’ve got a series of cryptic tweets (one of which references Hadestown as a (number) neighbor), a website that isn’t up yet, and they’ve just unveiled a new logo.

ETA: Interesting... if you visitthis siteyou’ll see it’s aDream Host Parked Domain, aka a domain that has been purchased and is likely ready to be active/enables email hosting but is not “turned on” just yet. Take that
ErmengardeStopSniveling said: "I count 4 theatres as being available for the fall. One could house a limited run, three could house open-ended runs. I would be surprised if they sit empty, because there's a backlog of shows that are trying to come to Bway.
– Belasco (til Feb)
– Lyceum (A Christmas Carolrumored to be going here)
– Sondheim (available starting in November)"

At Kiss Me Kate I had the chance to tell Corbin Bleu how much of an impact he had on my childhood. It just depends on the person. If it’s someone you look up to, I’m sure they’d be thrilled to hear you say a nice little thing like that. If not, they’d appreciate a “good job” all the same!
Broadway Buddy said: "Don’t think Poematter in Waitress sings much but I could be wrong. My mom saw it a while ago (I didn’t go) and she doesn’t remember much. Correct me if I’m wrong. "
He sings quite a bit actually! Jenna certainly gets most of the solos and the others either go to female characters or a couple choice non-doctorate guys, but Pomatter gets his time to shine in “It Only Takes a Taste” and “Bad Idea” (al

I mean I agree the Internet’s been toxic recently but there’s no need to make a big deal. Just ignore it.
Hot Pants said: "AADA81 said: "Sounds silly to spend so much creative energy musicalizing a video game."
I strongly disagree. We’ve seen musicals of movies, books, shows, comics, andcartoons. Why draw the line at video games? Especially when said video game is probably the most well known and beloved series in the entire genre. If the Spongebob Squarepants musical has proven anything, it’s that with the right amount of talent and genuine pass

The 1920s show Good News has a plot that revolves almost entirely around the actions of the character of Tom Marlowe, yet in the 90s version he only sings twice. Both of those instances are duets, and he is involved in none of the group numbers.
