A person with hiv today who is on treatment (meaning a pill a day) can expect to live a full, normal life with a regular life expectancy. Maybe you guys are talking about the Mimi’s of today who don’t take care of themselves?
****Spoilers ahead for each show so if you haven't seen the particular title, skip ahead! And yes I know BWW has a spoiler toggle thing but this is where we are so let's accept it.****
Hello BWW, I just went on my first Broadway binge since last summer so I'd love to tell you about it.Â
I saw four shows over 3 days and I was pleasantly surprised at the TOTAL lack of phone/device problems at all four shows.Â Yay audiences!&
Ali Stroker Attendance? Jul 4

I saw the show Tuesday night July 2 and Ali was out and Sasha was on. She was incredible so I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything. No she was not in a wheelchair which made her Ado Annie blocking very interesting since it seemed like she was constantly running around, sitting on laps, getting in faces, etc. Obviously there are two versions of the blocking for Ali and her understudy.
I don't think this would help for two reasons. First, so many people have Apple watches these days and don't have any problems having them glowing bright throughout the show.
Second, from my experience, most people who use their phones during shows just have their phone out for a few seconds. Yes, enough to disrupt the audience, the performers, and generally everyone around them. But the point is that these kind of people would say that they are just checking messages bec
Since the Tony Awards are neither ON Broadway nor OFF Broadway, unless you have a separate section for events, concerts, etc, then it shouldn't be grouped with regular off/on Broadway shows. I myself only keep meticulous and complicated charts, lists, and diagrams of only Broadway shows that I see.
I was on the fence about seeing Ain't too Proud because of the audience singing but now that the bookwriter is condoning audience singing, I am definitely not seeing it. I would imagine that if she were trying to watch a play or musical and people would not shut up around here, she would have a problem with it but unfortunately this has become about race and not respect of the theater space.
Two weeks ago i got a $497 orchestra third row center seat at Hamilton/Chicago for $180, which is what I paid for a seat up in the balcony in 2016. It seems like everybody assumes that Hamilton Chicago tickets are completely sold out and very expensive, so nobody even tries to get tickets. Whenever I say that I saw the show, people look at me and ask how was I ever able to snag a ticket like I had to sleep in the cancellation line for a month or something.
I saw the national tour of Chicago tonight, in Chicago! I have seen the Broadway production 29 times, so it was fun to compare and contrast the two productions.
The audience LOVED the show. So much cheering---dare I say MUCH more cheering than the last time I saw Chicago's Hamilton. However, there were some major sound issues. I would say that about 90% of Billy Flynn's lines were not heard, partly because of Eddie George's mumbling and partly because of the poo
One of my favorite theatrical experiences was seeing Color Purple on broadway with a theater full of sassy black women. They said "amen" and "girrrl" and "UMHP!" whenever something moving happened and I didnt mind it at all because it felt so in the moment. It felt so good to have us all experiencing it together, During On Your Feet, someone shushed me for lightly singing "1,2,3" and I snapped back qui
Almost every time I've seen Hamilton, someone around me starts to sing along with Aaron Burr when he starts the show with "how does a bastard, orphan.."
Last week, when I saw Hamilton in Chicago, a woman behind me started to sing along and was immediately shushed by what sound like the entire theater lol. She giggled and said sorry. But then she kept singing along to every song. Her boyfriend (or whoever he was) tried to get her to be quiet, but she wasn't h

Wow honestly I was going into this expecting to agree with the OP because I was afraid this revival ruined the lush original orchestrations. But I loved the People Will Say video and p.s. does Curley really say “who laughs at your jokes?” I feel like that’s the kind of modern snarky humor I would love to add if I ever directed this show (at the hs level—don’t worry I know my place). I loved how they kind of sounded like teenagers and I loved how high Curleys voice was at the beginning. There

Def Orch center row N. I avoid the mess because of the reasons Lot mentioned and because there always seems to be a ton of talking up there. Also, a cool surprise effect in act 2 gets spoiled from the mezz
You can see the same production of Beautiful on tour anywhere in the country as you can on Broadway. With Phantom, the only place to see the original production in this country is Broadway.
In The Heights revival? Feb 28

Harlem Rep Theater has been doing ITH for a few years now (in repertory of course) and it looks like their production is finally coming to an end On their Facebook page today, Harlem Rep posted about the closing and said that the cast members can now audition for the ITH Broadway revival this fall. Someone commented asking about the Broadway revival of ITH this fall, and Harlem Rep said “you heard it here first!”
Does anybody think this could possibly be true? I know some of y
