I thought I was getting a little burnt-out by Frozen with how quickly they were coming out with new material between the original movie, the shorts (which I haven't actually seen), and the Broadway show, but I have to say, this teaser has me really intrigued and I can't wait to see what they have in store. Definitely a very exciting trailer overall imo
That being said, I wonder if there's material in the shorts that will be referenced in the sequel.

I would love to see Dove as Glinda too.My concern for Gaga is that she would look too old for being a college student. And what about Carol Burnett as Morrible?
All I really want is a actress with a disability to play Nessa. Ali Stroker, perhaps?"
Not sure if this has really come up all that much, but is it possible for off-Broadway shows to win awards if they're a remounting of a Broadway show? I'm mostly thinking things like Avenue Q and Jersey Boys and the forthcoming Play that Goes Wrong. Would they be considered in the off-Broadway awards season since they're technically "new"?
I know the Drama Desks only allow one-time eligibility but I'm not too familiar with other off-Broadway awards

That honestly sounds like the best way to describe it. I saw it at the Ahmanson and it definitely needed some work but it was so out there that I would still be willing to see it in that form many more times just for the sheer wtf moments it generated.
Though I do wonder how much it changed between the LA and SF productions, no
Mike Barrett said: "Is Torch Song even happening? Someone mentioned they met a cast member who said Minneapolis was defifnetley a stop and it wasn't announced there. Im still hopeful as well but not going to get my hopes up on it. Could they potentially get the Cursed Child after San Francisco? Just speculating but the Ahmanson may also get Bandstand and The Drowsy Chaperone tours."
I know it doesn't necessarily mean anythings set in stone but just wanted to
I'm taking a friend to see it in April. She goes to a fair amount of musical theater but has almost no knowledge of Merrily--is the backwards storyline something I should tell her about beforehand, or something to let her figure out for herself?
Looking forward to seeing what reactions this production gets, especially with the Fiasco company.
I'd have to recommend The Other Josh Cohen in the Westside Theatre! It's a really charming show about an ordinary guy who runs into some less-than-ordinary circumstances, and it's overall just really uplifting. Also one of those musicals where the musicians are the actors, but they're absolutely fabulous in everything they do. It's $29 rush or $25 student rush (cash only, 1 per ID) day of, and when I rushed at the beginning of December I just sh
I feel like Frank Wildhorn as a whole could be a subject in itself as far as examining what went wrong.
As for what went wrong for the ones I've seen recently, the book of the show seems to be a huge issue, especially for Summer (where it was rather jumbled and almost nonexistent) and Head Over Heels (where the different parts of the show didn't seem to pull together and the use of verse was questionable). Though I suppose there's another argument to be made for jukeb
Sardis is pretty reliable after a show, and many of the servers have cool stories about actors and such. Bond45 also has a nice late-night happy hour, though I'm not sure how much it's frequented by theater personnel.
One thing to keep in mind if you're making reservations is that My Fair Lady is somewhat farther from the theater district, so make sure to plan for extra travel time!
While I know this doesn't mean it's set in stone, it's already listed as part of the 2019 season for the Ahmanson Theatre in LA so I really hope this happens! Though I'm super curious how they'll stage it, since it'll be a proscenium stage...
What exactly are the implications of an equity vs. non-equity tour and can someone explain what a networks or troika tour is?
For rush, technically yes you would show up at the box office when it opens, but they normally only have a limited number of tickets so depending on how popular a show is, you might want to show up anywhere between 30 minutes to a couple hours before opening (you can look up rush reports on bww for a specific show to see how early you might want to show up), though keep in mind that not every show offers rush.
If you're interested in Harry Potter, while they don't have rus
I think New World Stages has different policies per show (rush for Avenue Q/Jersey Boys, but student rush only for Puffs, and no rush for Desperate Measures which was there previously), so we probably won't know too much about Play That Goes Wrong until it's officially announced (though my guess would be that it will offer rush because the Broadway production did).
I think I read somewhere that you can only get rush tickets for Avenue Q in the first 20 minutes of the box
