And suddenly Richard Linklater starts to sweat, realizing that the star of his TWENTY YEAR long film project may be persona non grata before long. Good thing it's early enough in the project they can, oh, recast maybe.
Beetlejuice is SUCH a good time. It's silly fun anchored by two really incredible performers: Alex Brightman and Leslie Kritzer, who steals every damn scene she's in. I caught it on a depressing day in october and it was exactly what the doctor ordered.
I'm always curious to see, in long running shows, how ensemble assignments can shift over time. For example, in PHANTOM at some point over the years, Don Attilo went from being doubled with Passarino to being doubled with the Auctioneer. A more recent, more minor example, is in HAMILTON, where the little cameo appearance of Sally Hemmings in "What did I Miss" has gone from being played by Woman 3 (who also plays the Bullet) to Woman 4 (Who also plays Hamilton's Mother), at l
I was in new york for five days last week and within three days, I passed Raul Esparza on the street, rode the C train with Lin Manuel, and saw Melissa Erico at the Hal Prince exhibit at the NYPL. In all three cases, I didn't bother them.
TKTS - Times Square vas Lincoln Center. Oct 25

Is there any significant advantage to going to the Times Square booth rather than Lincoln center in terms of discounts or availability? Trying to make a last minute BEETLEJUICE happen.
So what has been changed since it's run in San Francisco? It seems like the biggest ones I can gather from reviews are that the project DHH is working on for Xue has shifted from a TV series to a musical (WOW that makes sense.) and that the stabbing is portrayed onstage. Anything else?
bear88 said:The current cast is good, the show is still excellent, but the dynamic does make me wonder about Hamilton's long-term staying power on tour. It certainly shows no sign of weakness in New York City, but the producers' strategy of striking while the iron was hot and having multiple tours running around the country - while sensible - may have saturated the market.
That's probably truly, but also, the hard fact is that San Francisco i
So....what exactly IS this show? I love Cyrano de Bergerac....what kind of adaptation is this?Is Dinkledge sporting a prosthetic nose? Is it set in modern day or is it a Spring Awakening-type deconstruction of a period piece? does it wildly deviate from the play or keep it close?
It seems like the actors always come out into the lobby but the specifics of the bit can be left to the actors. The published script describes it as "Robert appears in auditorium/foyer and joins the queue for ice creams [the traditional intermission concession in the west end]. Chris appears and sends him back." When I saw the show in new York with the original cast, this bit was one where Robert and Dennis came out in "disguise" and started loudly praising
"Non-traditional" refers to an intention to cast an actor with different attributes than the scripted (or historical, if applicable) ones; "color-blind" refers to casting without any attributionalintention at all."
It should be noted that in my recent experience, color blind casting has, in fact, been challenged as dated - a recent production at a high level regional theater, for example, was criticized for casting actors of color only as the show'
So I'll be in NY for a week in October, and will be left to my own devices on a thursday afternoon; Are there any shows that have matinees on this day other than PHANTOM and MOULIN ROUGE? I've been having a hard time verifying off-broadway schedules.
I understand that with the Mezzanine seats in Moulin rogue, you do miss some action on the passaralle if you are seated too far back. Are there any other sightline issues? at what point does the view become a big problem as opposed to a minor annoyance?
