Spiderman Injury AGAIN. Aug 16

TV wasn't hit by a prop backstage, Natalie Mendoza was. Which made for a convenient exit from the show about a week later, before the worst of the bad press hit...
Macbeth Playbill Jun 2
2013, 05:37:11 PM
Color Playbills for a Broadway house run the production around $2000 a week. Black-and-white is no extra charge, unless the production switches from color to b&w, in which case I believe it's about a $400 one-time fee. For some shows, it just doesn't make sense to bother with color.
Jan's Bag - 2012 Edition May 1

I thought I was having the same wet dream, until I woke up and was just lying in a puddle of my own frightened tears.
Who Would Of 'Rock' Thought It Apr 3

Why "Rock" is in the thread title (or more accurately, what it's supposed to replace or play off of as a pun) is the real question.
British Guy Pleads Sickness For Jury Duty..Goes To See Dec 26

He seems like he survived relatively unharmed, though I do think it's... if not good, at least a tiny bit appropriate that he got somewhat of a prison experience. I'm sorry that he was harassed based on his sexuality, because that should never happen to anyone regardless of the situation.
That said... he played hooky on jury duty to see a show? Chicago, even? He deserves a punishment of some kind, though clearly more lenient than what he got.
Entertainment Weekly's Best Stage Shows of 2011 Dec 26
2011, 01:21:53 AM
I feel biased, but it still blows my mind that The Normal Heart could not be on anyone's top ten. I'm not saying it's number one (I mean, it's not my number one), but it amazes me the things that have been chosen above it.
ETA: And may I just say I'm amazed this thread has lasted this long without getting deleted?
Standing on Ceremony Nov 13

Has anyone seen this show? I just read Isherwood's review, and it certainly sounds interesting, but I was wondering if anyone else who's actually seen it has any input.
Julie Taymor sues SPIDER-MAN producers Nov 8

I find it quite interesting that she names Glen Berger, her former co-writer, as a defendant in the suit, but NOT Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who came on when she left.
ONCE Musical Headed to Broadway in February? Sep 24
2011, 04:07:05 PM
I'm very excited for this - the movie is one of my favorites of all time. I was satisfied with the end, too. The girl can never quite commit to the guy in the way he can to her - even when she *SPOILER ALERT* tells him she loves him, it's in Czech, and she won't translate for him. In the end, it's not surprising that she can't drop everything and run away with him.
I was at the invited dress, so I won't give a full review, but I'll just say that Ms. Bassett gives a powerhouse performance (and looks a good 20+ years younger than she is), and I'm excited to go back and see the show after some tightening, as I think that's the bulk of what it needs to be ready to open.
The Mountaintop - first preview Sep 23

Did anyone go to the first preview tonight, or last night's invited dress? I walked past tonight when the show was letting out and there was a (predictably) HUGE crowd at the stage door.
How'd You Get Into Theatre? Aug 12
2011, 02:02:11 AM
I grew up watching movie musicals - my mom force-fed us Singin' In The Rain (still my favorite movie) every chance she could get. The high school I eventually went to was also, conveniently, huge on theatre. I saw then do Brigadoon, Bye Bye Birdie, The Music Man, and several other musicals and plays before I was old enough to know what Broadway really was. We lived within a few hundred miles of New York City, so I was lucky enough to see a few shows early enough to hook me for life.
