The film's release is being handled carefully. It only opened on 461 screens (that same weekend, ABOMINABLE opened on over 4,200 screens). It still managed to crack the top 10 that weekend...and also had one of the highest per-screen averages. Last weekend, the film was on just shy of 1,500 screens and still came in at #7 with a high per-screen average.
This is no threat to JOKER, etc...but it is definitely holding its own and performing beyond initial expectations.
The cheeseburger at Joe Allen is amazing...at all of their locations: New York, London and Paris.
i remember going to a business dinner in London years ago. Six of us all got cheeseburgers and fries. When we were done, our waiter asked if we’d saved room for dessert. One of my table mates spoke for all of us: “No, just bring another round of cheeseburgers for the table!”
it was slightly embarrassing, but we all appreciated the second round!
Jeff Fenholt, who played the title role in the original Broadway production and subsequent tour of the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice musical Jesus Christ Superstar and later became a TV evangelist, died Tuesday. He was 68 and apparently ailing, and though his
So if this musical is produced like 99.9% of movie musicals, what are the chances we'll be able to hear the soundtrack recording nearly two decades before the movie is released? After all, the songs will be prerecorded...maybe a good number of them have been recorded already! It could be up for a Grammy Award 20 years before the movie is eligible for an Academy Award!
As to whether or not the rooftop scene will take place in 2019... I guess OUR TIME could be sung as the three
I read once that the first digital recording of a Broadway show was of the 1979 revival of OKLAHOMA!, but that because of some technical issues, an analog back-up master was used for all commercial releases: LP, cassette and, eventually, CD.

OP, how was the presentation of the film...just wondering how it looked? Sometimes the Fathom events look great, other times they look like they’re running VHS tape.
I would just advise that if you see an actor on stage with a weapon, there’s a good chance he or she might use it in the context of the show. Are we really at a place now where we need to know about these things in advance of seeing a performance? I hope not.
Three, four or more decades ago, the Broadway Divas were nationally recognized names in many instances. Ethel, Carol, Liza, Barbra, Bernadette, Angela and more.
Today, the names Sutton, Cynthia, Jessie, etc. don’t trigger that same recognition. It has nothing to do with their respective talents.. Times and tastes have changed and gone are the days when a Broadway cast album could dominate the charts for weeks, months or even years. National television exp
I saw the final performance of the original production of PARADE at Lincoln Center. It was very powerful and moving as the audience was more than peppered with devotees of the show. I still love this show and that performance cemented my love of it.
So far, I think the best recollection in this thread was from the poster who recalled the final performance of FOLLIES; the original Broadway production. I saw it during previews in Boston...
For those of us completely familiar with the score, listening to it in Yiddish is no problem at all. I love that so much additional music is included, too. Physically, this will be a 2 CD release which is why the price is higher than most cast recordings on Amazon.
What a beautifully performed and engineered recording!

In my earlier post, which you replied to, I stated that the dark side of the show was apparent. This latest revival believes the audience needs to be hit over the head with, what to me, was always obvious.
