This will 100% be postponed. Rehearsals won’t even be able to happen. And there’s too many big names involved to reschedule immediately. If it does still happen, it’ll probably be next season.
I absolutely loved it. A phenomenal production with some really great performances. Katrina and Patti, of course, but Jennifer Simard, Christopher Fitzgerald, Etai Benson, and Matt Doyle are all turning in excellent work as well. The others fare well, but they just have less to do.
There are definitely places where the pacing can be picked up, but it’s in pretty fantastic shape. I loved so

I find this statement hilarious, considering it’s never a “young person” checking their phone during a show or having it loudly rin
It was apparently phenomenal. My roommate was there and she absolutely loved it. What it lacked in intimacy, it gained in communal experience. She said for all the ruckus that occurred when a character said something particularly racist, there were also several moments when you could have heard a pin drop. For an arena full of 12,000 student
Bettyboy72 said: "Looks interesting for sure but I fear the cast will be weak and overextended during this run. Many newbies in what looks like a grueling show. Isaac doesn’t sound very strong vocally. I’d like the show sung well. The re-interpretation looks intriguing but I’d also like it sung well and danced well. I’m sure I’ll see it, but as others have said I think this show will be understudy heavy. "

I saw it last night. I was completely floored by it. Deirdre O’Connell does more with sitting alone in a chair for 75 minutes than most actors do with a full stage and two acts. One of the best, most human performances I’ve ever seen. The story itself is astonishing enough, but Lucas Hnath and Les Waters’s conceit is truly incredible.
Do not miss this.

One of my absolute favorite staging moments was “Tonight” and particularly the scene after with the two gangs pulling them apart.
I caught this again tonight. Boy oh boy is this production breathtaking. It’s only more breathtaking and wonderful now than it was back in December. Just a big “wow” for me.
Issac Powell and Shereen Pimentel have really found gorgeous shades and layers in their performances - Powell particularly finds a lot of freshness and pathos in his solos. Their “Tonight” is the highlight of the evening, as is the scene after. I still have some quibbles with some

I caught this the other night and thought it was dreadful. A waste of time and Laura Linney’s talent. A total snoozefest.
I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, unless you love overly saccharine Lifetime/Hallmark movies or find rhapsodic descriptions of fields and sunlight profound.
QueenAlice said: "A sensational read on the new WEST SIDE STORY in the New York Times. It answers the question, among other things that Sergio Trujillo was brought in - not to reinstate Robbin's choreography but to help (along with Patricia Delgado) DeKeersmaeker incorporate more authentically Latino movements into the Shark's dance vocabulary.
joevitus said: "I had thought all the screen action was live footage of the performance in progress."
There are some pre-filmed segments that play behind scenes onstage, some live close-ups during some scenes like Dance at the Gym and the Rumble, and then live scenes filmed offstage/in the Doc’s store and dress shop sets built into the back of the stage. So it’s a mix of pre-filmed and live, but all the book scenes that happen on film happen live.
I’m so excited for this. Matilda is one of my all-time favorite scores and I thought the original production was stellar, with the exception of the absolute worst musical sound design I’ve ever heard. I’m glad Warchus will be directing the movie as well.

I perform in a show that’s been running for close to a decade. We’ve had MANY cast members injure themselves through the course of our show over the years, some in small ways that caused them to miss a couple shows and some in ways that required intensive healing time/surgery. Does that make the show dangerous? No. But it is not without its risks, and is a large part of why we are afforded sick pay, workers’ comp, and ample resources to keep our bodies in performing shape.
