As much as I love Billy Porter as a performer, he was pretty horrendous on the Oscar red carpet this year. I don't think hosting the Tonys would appeal to his strengths. Have him lead the opening a la Janelle Monae? That I'm all for!

I agree. Regardless of the horrible acts that occurred at the ballet (not everything is beautiful at the ballet, I guess), he was the weakest part of this production of West Side Story. His voice is horrible and compared to Isaac, Shereen, and Yesenia, he had the stage presence of a wet
"With the move to Broadway, my experience with Hamilton began to shift. Gone were the days of collaborative developmental rehearsals where we all were creating and shaping the piece together. Our run at The Public Theater had solidified the mass of what Hamilton was, and the focus of rehearsals for Broadway were about whittling away some unnecessary story and making

Sad to see those 4 go in the Broadway production. In my opinion. they're the 4 best in the principal cast. I could think of 3 others who have been around for a long time, and I would love to see some new blood fill those roles...

Depends on the show but sometimes paying earlier is worse, and it's better to wait. Jagged Little Pill they give out partial view sides. The further back you go the less partial it is but it looks like they distribute the tickets from front to rear. My seats were AWFUL (but was able to move right next to Mariska Hargitay).

One scene ended with Mimi 1, next scene Mimi 2 enters. It took a few seconds to realize it wasn’t the same actress. At the start of Act 2 they did announce the actress playing Mimi for the rest of the show."
I'm sure that wasn't the only time that happened but I w
I found the Inheritance to be trite, over-indulgent, mostly over- and poorly- acted, way too long and drawn out, and really surface level when it thinks it's delving deep into something special. Direction is spectacular and the final scene of Part 1 is great - those are the only good things I can say.
Slave Play, on the other hand, is deep and meaningful, brilliantly written, has several fantastic performances, and breezes by.

I understand your point but when I saw"Newsies", this song literally stopped the show. The actors had to wait for about 15-30seconds for the standing ovation to stop before they could go to the next part of the show."
I'm not saying that it's not a great number but that it doesn't constitute an 11 o'clock number.
