I saw this revival last week and I loved everything about it. The best description I have for Fish's direction is "weird" in every sense of the word. It was riveting and interesting and amazing. I'm sick of seeing happy go lucky, everything's dandy, lets just be happy shows. Make me uncomfortable. Challenge my ideas. Make me feel. And this production did all of that. I will 100% be going back and I am counting down the days till I see it again!

Anyone know if these are scheduled vacations or just a day off? I'm seeing the show wed night and I was really looking forward to seeing RNJ and Damon
As for the remakes I heard somewhere that Walt Disney himself wanted the classic Disney movies remade every however many years so every generation gets to experience (for the first time) like the kids did when the disney classics first came out. Not sure how true that is but I believe it. And it makes sense. Otherwise disney would have just made the most popular movies live action and not the less popular ones like Ju
Oh wow! I'm happy I'll be able to see it up close but it sucks that it's not doing too well. Thanks for the update guys

But again I think the petioner went in there, got offended by one thing and was unable to let it go for the rest of the show. The point of the show is not to depict the real life of slavery. Its literally not, so first we need to get that out of our heads. Second, if the white audience is laughing that sounds like a problem with the audience, not the play. The playwright said himself this is a comedic play that is suppose to make the audience uncomfortable. So should you be surprised at laughing

Troynow just because you had a problem with it doesn't dictate how everyone else should feel about it. And saying that it doesn't matter that the playwright and director are black is a load of crap. You don't turn off race your when it comes to art. Its apart of you. So yes the playwright and directer know exactly what they are doing and I commend them for that. Now more than ever we need challenging plays on broadway that examine new ideas. No, i have not seen the play, but when it came out I r
I just saw Rocketman a few days ago and I have been unable to stop thinking about it since. I thought the way they went about telling Elton's story was genius and the new arrangements lend itself well for adapting it to the stage. Not to mention the amazing costumes and music. I really hope it happens!
I bought a ticket months ago for a seat in the balcony. However, I would really love to see the show from the orchestra. Is it a good idea to try to get a refund from the box office and rush the show the day I'm seeing it??? (I am going in July)

Just as when someone said Andrew Garfield "played Gay" in Angels... it's not a biggie unless you make it a biggie.."
But it is a "biggie". And its very telling of your character th
I can only shake my head to these responses... The reason why people love Audra's voice so much is because she ACTS in all her music. If Audra was only a pretty voice she wouldn't be half as successful as she is. Support the person if you cherish them so much and don't put labels on her. She's a performer for goodness sake and she's proved time and time again she is more than just a singer. If you can't support her in all facets maybe you aren't actually a fan
Speed said: "Haven’t seen this production yet, but how is it “a prologue to rape”? They’ve already had sex before the play starts. I love love love the movie which is completely different than play. Completely different. Nathan Lane is great in it. It’s when I fell in love with him."
Wow ok so first it doesn't matter whether you've slept with a person a hundred times or 0, consent is always needed. so whether they had sex a day a
InTheBathroom1 said: "Saw this on Saturday and was decently entertained. Audra and Michael are brilliant actors and give incredible and nuanced performances. And while the play had funny and interesting moments, I couldn’t help but thinking this play didn’t age well. Johnny’s inability to take no for an answer made me pretty uncomfortable at all times. I also think the actors are far too conventionally attractive for these roles. They talk about how they look averag

Thanks so much for the info. - just grabbed two tickets for our date in the fourth row Mezz center. We were originallyfurther back in the Mezz at the lowest original price point,so we’ll try to sell those seats for at least part of what we paid, but even if we can’t it&rsqu
Just watched this video and I absolutely loved every second of it. Acting is made up of actions ya'll and it is clear RNJ is doing specific things tailored to her Laurie. Just because you don't get it doesn't mean its bad,,, it just means its not for you.
I saw this last year at the signature theatre and no joke I went 3 times. I really loved how this show simplistically encapsulated such a defining moment in its character's lives. I really hope it continues to be produced because I will be there to buy a ticket!
As an actress of color I just want to say a few things. Should Lola be played by a non-poc? Absolutely not. Lola is supposed to be black... its in the lyrics. You cannot deny that. If you don't have the people for the show... DONT DO IT. Plain and simple. (Priscilla is a great show, same vibe, and guess what??? Anyone can be any color. Wow, what a concept!) This rhetoric of, "well it's okay" "It doesnt matter all that much" is so damaging for poc actors in this com
