THIS IS MY OPINION ONLY AFTER HAVING SEEN THESE SHOWS...
SIX- IMO the best musical running in London right now, but at 75 minutes long with the 6 wives of Henry VIII as the subject matter is going to have a hard time on Broadway. This will NOT work in anything but the smallest Broadway house and this will be a tough sell.
ALMOST FAMOUS- Reviews aside this is just another mediocre musical from a well-loved film. I love Tom Kitt, b

SpaceBee said: "As the title says really, which movie (animated or live action) would you like to see adapted for Broadway? Personally I'd love to see the Barbie Princess and the Pauper movie. I know it's a weird choice but I think it's got a solid soundtrack! Not sure how they'd manage the talking cats but y'know."

The Torgan Family operates the theater.
Quentin Tarantino owns the building.

I had the pleasure to sit and chat with her about ten years ago. A lovely, sweet, caring, and talented person.
I saw her in My One and Only, but tonight her greatest episodes of the Mary Tyler Moore Show will be on my TV.

There is no way to overstate the absolute perfect performance that Stockard Channing brought to Six Degrees of Separation. I saw it 3 times, and in my 40+ years of theatre going it still stands as the greatest performance by an actress on stage that I have ever had the pleasure to watch.

You sound like a lot of fun, Larry.
I am fun, and funny. I just don't agree that your ticket price should include a meet and greet and an autograph.

I didn't login to get my tickets until they had been on sale for almost 4 hours.
Wed Marathon in February ROW M on the aisle for $169 each play is a steal IMHO.
| CENTER THEATER GROUP - Worst Season Ever? Mar 6
2019, 06:06:29 PM|
"Is ONCE ON THIS ISLAND touring, or is it a one-time deal at the Ahmanson? If it is touring, why should it play the Taper"?
It should play the Taper because of the intimacy that space provides. The Ahmanson seats 2000 and is too large for this production. The mezzanine in the Ahmanson is so far from the stage, you'd think you were in the balcony. Unless you are on a very severe budget, Ahmanson balcony seats are NOT good.

While I do not agree that CTG's customer service is bad, sans the nasty House Manger at the Ahmanson, I do agree that the new Ahmanson season is plain awful.
The inclusion of two one man shows that should be playing the Taper is ludicrous. I can understand LATIN HISTORY FOR MORONS as it's from Berkeley Rep and has a true stage star, but THE NEW ONE is mediocre at best, and had a very dubious move to Broadway, IMHO.

I too saw SOFT POWER in Los Angeles.
I will not review it here, but the creatives must have something great "up their sleeves" to get this show to work.
