Haven't seen this production but did the Falco/Tucci one and the scene is first when the lights come up. The ushers most definitely should be on alert, no easier time to patrol than the first minutes.
Wrong of course but for an invasion of privacy
Palace Theatre renovation updates? Apr 17

Marquee is gone. Billboards and LED sign will probably be gone next week. They had to wait for "Kinky Boots" to close as the billboard stated last show April 7th.
"'FOSSE/VERDON' COMING TO FX" Apr 9

The Shuberts should name The Broadhurst The Fosse/Verdon. The Broadhurst name has zero historical value. But after thirty years they still haven't named The Majestic for the man who has but more asses in Shubert seats than anyone else in Broadway history. They might have someone who makes copies up in the office they deem more worthy as they did The Royale and The Plymouth.
Horror On Broadway Mar 28

Going thru some New Times archives, the 70's had some horror/thrillers. One "Veronica's Room" by Ira Levin starring recently Oscared Eileen Heckart at The Music Box. It ran for 75 performances. Gwen Verdon gave it a go with "Children! Children!" at The Ritz and closed on Opening Night. Joan Hackett starred in "Night Watch" and ran for 121 shows and even though it wasn't a success, "Night Watch" was adapted into a movie staring Elizabeth Taylor.

She sang it because she is decades long friends with the song writers,one of who was playing the piano. Plus it is a lovely song that deserved win and way better than the dirge that won only because of star power.

The hotel has closed and scaffolding has been erected below The Palace marquee. Not part of the project but the McDonalds on the other end of the block is closing soon too. They built a bigger modern one down the block on the Old Criterion theater site so the whole block will be dark.

"Home" from "The Wiz" is a close second. A small girl alone center stage starting soft and ending by raising the roof.

I always say some theater fans have no idea life exists off W45th Street. To normal people this doesn't sound strange. To some of you it does because nothing matters but the original cast album. This is a POP version of the song. She is not singing it in character just like Streisand wasn't Grisabella singing "Memory". More people covering the song is a good thing.

'Are younger generations even familiar with the movie? I remember watching it in the 80's and being thoroughly entertained, but how familiar is it to people born after 1990?"
Alas no one born after 1990 has a television.
Whoopi really pushes 'HoH' on The View Aug 4
2018, 03:16:50 PM
'Well, Whoopi thank you but your VIEW watchers are not the audience for this show and you could not save SB and HOH is heading in the same direction and will close soon and Summer is losing week after week."
So why bother, right? I guess in your world the glass isn't either half full or half empty, it's just empty.
Well, I'll assume he won't be shoplifting the soundtrack anytime soon.

Saw the show on the 4th of July matinee, no evening show scheduled. Walked out of the box office after picking up tickets to see a white SUV coming into the alley. It was Parsons. There were three, I repeat 3 people standing there waiting for him, one was a pro (you know what I mean, has the bag full of 8 x 10's) the other two were together and had the show's windowcard. The couple were ultra polite, "Excuse me Mr.Parsons.... Parsons walked straight to the stage door passing the three and ignore

Why should she sign something at the stage door while she can get $80 for at a Comic Con, which every major city has.
