I know a broadway actor who once gave one of those restaurant recommendations you see in the back of playbill. He said he didn't pick the restaurant and they basically paid for a nice dinner for two there and asked his opinion on things like "I liked the salmon!"
ASP likes to reuse actors so I'd expect Bailey De Young to be in the running for Dainty June as she was on Bunheads and Maisel and still looks young.
In the same vein I'd like to see Lauren Graham, Sutton, and McCarthy as Tessie, Mazeppa, and Electra. :-P

I skipped this on my last London trip (saw the Inheritance a second time instead) because everyone told me it was just confusing and while they're both terrific neither performance was must-see. This seems very strange to transfer.
Try calling a bar/restaurant near the Atkinson too. Maybe somewhere like Glass House Tavern has a coat check and would hold it for you during the show. Or a hotel on that block. Never hurts to take the 2 minutes to call for peace of mind.
In my experience you should be fine. There are usually coat checks open this time of year, but even if not the house manager should be able to store it for you somewhere.Just bring a few bucks if they charge you/for a tip and dont be impatient if it takes them a while after the show to get it for you.
I think it would be FASCINATING to reverse their known character types and have Megan play Mame and Messing play Vera. Both know how to wring laughs and elevate material, have chemistry and a great working relationship.

Does anyone think the forthcoming "Surviving R Kelly"-type documentary about Jackson would cause a backlash against this?
He should let somewhere like Chichester Festival or the Menier take a stab at re-imagining it. That way if it works, he's got a smaller working production and if it doesn't, revive the original in 5-10 years saying "the last one proved people want the original!"
Mike Barrett said: "As far as I know, Steve Carrell has never performed and I'd love to see him. And I know he's young so of course he hasn't, but Timothee Chalamet would be a treat to see in any drama."
Tim-o-tay was also off-broadway a few years ago in a play, Prodigal Son at MTC.
A gay man playing a straight role is, in fact, not the same currently in the world. Gay actors to this day are still told by agents to not come out or if they're out to "tone the gay down" in their social media and interviews. They are still very much not allowed to play mainstream straight parts for many reasons. Even the bigger name out actors (the few there are) are told bigger movies won't see them because it's "not believable." All while living in a world
Probably just came down to not making enough from it for the hours it takes to put into something like those podcasts. I know he has a young kid and probably wanted to spend more time with his daughter than editing hours of audio for not much profit. Who knows though?
To be honest I always found the way he got too excited and fanned out hardcore on everybody unprofessional-sounding, but I'm sure other found it charming. I love that he loves performers and shows that much, but y
She attempts it and it comes off poorly. There's nothing in the text that says she can't be American. I was shocked they didn't just let her use her natural accent. I think her performance would come across much stronger if she did.
I think the show could work on Broadway, but I agree it's a bit too similar to The Prom with a touch of Kinky Boots thrown in.

I am so glad I saw this and did enjoy myself, but if you are expecting this to be a life changing experience and the best theatre you’ve ever seen in your life I can’t help but predict many will be disappointed. It’s so no
