| Anne Hathaway in "Carnival" at Encores! Jun 26
2020, 04:39:14 PM|
Pardon me if this has been discussed before. I did a search and didn't find anything.
Just came across this video of Anne Hathaway in an Encores! production of "Carnival" from years back and had no idea it had happened. I know people seem to be divided when it comes to Anne, but I've always thought she was wonderful. She really should do Broadway at some point.
Did anyone here see it or have any memories? How would we feel about her doing more theatre?<

I'd LOVE to see a gritty, more realistic film remake of RENT.

And i don't know Scott Rudin - but I know he could buy her out of her Younger contract with his spare change for laundry."
Yeah... That's not how it works. She can't just "choose" to leave Younger because she feels like it. I'm sure she's contractually obligated to make the sho

I hadn't thought of that one but she would sure sound lovely singing that score. Her "Someone Like You" & "A New Life" would be fantastic, I'm sure.

Kids like this are just considered to be"brats."Not that it makes it right, but it's get more of the eye roll treatment, instead of 'we need to fire her immediately.' And she ain't dumb. As Elizabeth says, I'm sure she was a lovely little suck up when it came time to dealing with any of the "impo

I don't get it, though. WHYYYYYY was she ever allowed to get away with such behavior?! It's not like her name was a box office draw. Why would she not have been fired?
I believe everything that's being said, but it just baffles me how an actress who had no power would be able to treat people this way and not lose her job.

Not making any excuses for Lea as I'm sure she's awful (friends of mine have their own horror stories), but doesn't at least a little bit of the blame belong to Ryan Murphy? I mean, it was his show. Would it not have theoretically been his responsibility to put a stop to Lea's on set behavior if it were creating a toxic work environment? The only way she could have had any power on set is if he allowed it. Especially considering

Damn, so "The Inheritance" is just like... Officially closed now. Bummer they won't be able to have a proper closing performance.

On the other hand, they did just release a whole new block of tickets and I’d be surprised to see it not run at least until the Tonys.
Assuming they stay open until the Tony's, do we think that chances of them winning "Best Play" is high, though?

I'd imagine that the producers are going to try hard to keep it open until the Tony's, though I don't know how realistic that is at this point.

That performance is fantastic. I've always thought she was great but you can tell her voice has gotten even stronger since "Waitress".

If it gets unanimous raves, I'd imagine it will help the the show at the box office, but even so, I can't imagine it would all of a sudden become a huge, sellout hit. The show's subject matter, lack of stars and especially it's length make it a hard sell, regardless of how great it is. I did very much enjoy it though, so I'm hoping for the best.

Oh wow, never saw that before. It's a very pretty song and Megan sounds fantastic! Does anyone know if they've ever done a workshop or even reading of the show?

"Ahh okay thanks for confirming! Haha true, it does fit! Imagine singing this every night though on stage .... your voice would be wrecked!"
Yeah, this type of score would definitely be hard on a singer, assuming there are more songs like this in the show.
