More importantly, I'm not sure I ever considered Audrey II to be a woman.
"In the equal-opportunity spirit of Audrey II, who indiscriminately devours her prey, we decided to opt for a lottery rather than a rush, so the late-risers of Skid Row have just as much of a shot at seats," said producers Tom Kirdahy, Robert Ahrens, and
The Distinctive Baritone said: "I'm always baffled by these things. George inVirginia Woolfis one of the greatest stage roles ever written for a male actor. What TV gig could possibly make him back out of playing it on Broadway? I mean, I know...MONEY...but seriously..."
Where did you read that it was a TV gig that's the scheduling conflict?
I'm a little bummed, to be honest. I was really looking forward to seeing Izzard, who I love
SonofRobbieJ said: "They're going to lean hard into the 'Marian is Winthrop's mother' subtext, right? Cause Marie Mullen won a Tony for playing a middle aged spinster twenty years ago. For her to have a 10-year-old would be some next level miracle of modern science for turn of the century Iowa."
I'm definitely a fan of the theory that Marian is Winthrop's mother, but it really isn't impossible for a woman in turn-of-the-century Iowa to hav

Didn’t McClure show he could play this role when he did Where’s Charley? at Encores! way back in 2011?

Larry is kind of a thankless part, plus it makes sense that Joanne’s husbands keep getting younger. (And one reason she offers him to Bobbie is that they’re closer in age.) Could Sieber be Harry?
Kad said: "The point is the character is at an age where she should be settled down and isn’t. Lenk is only in her early 40s. Harping on her age is silly."
Especially since LuPone will turn 71 shortly after the show's opening. Despite the fact that Joanne isn't quite sure where she fits into social situations age-wise, she is still a sexual and vital woman.
Patti LuPone, who refused to do matinees at all during the run of Evita."
That was decided for her by the producers, following the precedent started with Elaine Paige in London.

She said that the recovery was tough (which is a common complaint from hip replacement patients), but she obviously recovered fine and would have a similar length of time to recover from this one as she did from the first one. Plus I think the first one was more overdue than this one, which could have made recovery tougher. She’s not a young patient, but she’s so active that she should be fine.

You make it sound as if Rodgers and Hammerstein were the first to use this property. That is hardly the case. The Cinderella story is on of the most adapted stories in the literary canon. There have been multiple musical interpretations before the R&H adaptation, and there have be
Cape Twirl of Doom said: "I thought Radio City was also without power so how did Beetlejuice manage to be unaffected?"
I was wondering the same thing, since I thought I read that the blackout was from 5th all the way to the Hudson River. I wondered if some of the theaters (namely the Sondheim, Lyceum and Hudson) were on a different grid than the rest of the theaters that are west of Broadway AND are at the northern end of their grid. But I’m not sure why the Wi

Playbill also usually has a listing of show schedules during a holiday week. A lot of shows are adding a performance on Monday, July 1st, too.
bdn223 said: "Its similar to why War Paint closed on November 5, 2017, instead of playing through its announced closing of December 30, 2017. Patti LuPone’s hip injury allowed the producers to cash in in their Key man insurance policy and recoup costs for the entire production, instead of loosing more money by risking the show without her."
To get into the semantics of it, I wouldn't refer to LuPone's hip replacement surgery as an "injury," be
