Broadway's Greatest Love Song?  Feb 15 2020, 07:51:57 PM


Broadway's Greatest Love Song?  Feb 15 2020, 07:51:55 PM
fully agree about the self serving nature of many of the article respondents

i go back to several bway love songs that always get me

1) so in love-kiss me kate
2) written in the stars-aida
3) on the street where you live-my fair lady

Tours with better casts than OBCs  Jan 4 2020, 10:21:09 PM


Tours with better casts than OBCs  Jan 4 2020, 10:21:07 PM

just see the original broadway casts whenever you can!!!!

there is something absolutely magical about the energy,
creativity, and passion of those originating these roles together.

as someone who lives in san francisco, i used to compare and try
to equate tour casts with obc’s...wishful thinking in general on my part and some sour grapes for not living in nyc

ive been going for years now in may to nyc to see most or all the new musicals, then invariably

Interesting Mid-Show Mishaps  Dec 3 2019, 12:51:45 AM

wicked sf sit down-eden espinosa was struggling with allergies during first few songs, went off stage on way to oz and standby felicia ricci came back on as elphie as entering oz with no announcement. felicia did great, but mispositioned the broom during the elevator lift in gravity and it snapped in two...

Felicia as an  excellent elphaba and sorry to see her not stay in musicals, she did some amazing youtube videos and a great online vocal training program....



Your Top 10 Shows This Decade  Nov 30 2019, 03:28:23 PM

hi vintagesnarker

been a while since we have chatted. I knew epic would draw a response so we can have a dialogue vs another dreary list posting

Epic is certainly a subjective opinion, and it will take the advantage of time to see where the class of 2010-2019 stacks up against golden age decades in the 1950s and 1960s or the BIG musical 1980s or 1990s. 

my nomination for 2010s as EPIC is based on

1) Hamilton as a true gamechanger in making music in musicals co

RIP Broadway 07/18/2019  Jul 20 2019, 04:59:56 PM
of course this title is clickbait, but im in an airport waiting for my plane so ill bite...

i saw all the new shows and revivals this season. hadestown was fantastic,aint too proud was dazzling, tootsie was funny and well acted, and the prom was good fun. the fresh look at oklahoma held my attention

no blockbusters this season with long legs like evan hansen or
hamilton except maybe aint too proud which i think will outlast hadestown

its a boom economy so people a

Biggest Tony upset of all time?  Jun 19 2019, 11:31:13 PM
i never thought mathilda was a great musical
i liked berties performance a lot...
i listen to kinky boots songs all the time have seen in many times over its run and thoroughly enjoyed every cast and performance. i saw mathilda obc once and tour once and wouldnt go back again...

i know everyone has their favorites so respect those of you that loved mathilda more...

the audience certainly voted with grosses and giving kinky boots a 2500 performance run on bway vs 1500 sh


Ain't Too Proud ... Snubbed!  Jun 19 2019, 11:04:13 PM
holy cow
aint too proud is the fourth largest grossing musical on broadway right now behind only

hamilton 3m
lion king 2.2m
wicked 1.9m
aint too proud 1.6m

wow


Ain't Too Proud ... Snubbed!  Jun 19 2019, 10:56:47 PM
ain’t too proud can laugh all the way to the bank and to impacting and uplifting so many people

this show will outlast, outgross, and out tour hadestown and all other shows from this season combined

after seeing it prebroadway a handful of times and loving every single performance. i saw it sunday in nyc

somehow and fantastic show had gotten even better with the cast members operating at an absolutely incredible level
(special shout out to ephram and jeremy...nice


The Prom Will Close 8/11  Jun 19 2019, 09:22:09 PM
just saw the show last week
and sad to hear its closing

great book with some nice satire on bway and a lot of delightful
fun score with several gems
wonderful and very lovable cast
all that said its a good and probably not great show with a story line thats not as likely to register mass appeal.

the bands visit won 10 tonys and closed after 18 because there is not sustained mass appeal for beautiful niche productions(although i read it did recoup)

i thi


Roy Orbison's  Jun 19 2019, 01:52:08 PM
this is a good move
shocked they didnt do it from the start

just saw this last week for the first time
and liked it a lot more than i thought i would
its not great
it is fun and entertaining and the guy playing the hotel manager/street person pretty much steals the show

i was also lucky enough to see roy orbison play a 400 person club in sf in 1982

he was the real deal

pretty woman is a truly iconic song, long before richard gere and julia rob


Hamilton San Francisco  Jun 18 2019, 07:18:09 PM
wow hamilton sf just showed up on goldstar with 95 rear mezz and side mezz seats
also noticed top premium seats in center orch and front mezz arent selling and being discounted down to as low as 200 a few days before show

the san francisco cast is terrific, so looking like hamilton is reaching saturation after five mos in sf in 2017 and almost four months on this run....

im really surprised and think part of it may be that people dont think good tickets are available at rea
