Couldn't agree more; it was blow-me-away fantastic.

The score is delicious and infectious - like Peggy, I need a cast recording ASAP. Annie Golden is everything you'd expect and more. And the rest of the cast is just as insanely talented.
Jarethan said: The show is the star (it provided the material to allow his performance) and will be fine. I have to admit that I think a lot of posters on this site get a little carried away with the comparisons. The audiences will never know the difference with the replacements. The ones announced so far have great credentials and there is no reason to believe they won't be great too.
I may be less knowledgable than many on this site, but
I agree with those frustrated by the way scalpers are driving up the cost of tickets to levels that are simply unfeasible for many.
However, there's a part of me that believes Alexander Hamilton, the creator of American capitalism himself, would say that what is going on with the ticket pricing is a direct result of the economic system he envisioned, put in place, and championed. He would probably take enormous pride in the fact that the biggest current hit on Broadway, based
I believe the information about Streisand at one point wanting to direct as well as star in a film version of Gypsy has been talked about publicly for years?
One possible way for her to play Rose would be to alter the story and make Rose the grandmother of the girls who wound up having to raise them after their parents died or abandoned them. Rose could be someone who gave up her own dreams of stardom to be a conventional housewife and mother but always regretted it and now sees he
"she's signed on for season 2 of Scream Queens and it's rumored she may appear on American Horror Story, she's writing a new book AND recording a new album. How could she possibly have time to squeeze a Broadway show anywhere into a schedule like that? As long as Ryan Murphy is cranking out hit TV shows, she'll have a place on TV and I don't see her turning that down any time soon."

Not long. Maybe not Paramount, but definitely Murphy, who had an entire media cycle a week or so ago based on having dinner at Barbra's house with himself, Travolta, who arranged the get-together, and Gaga as the only invited guests.
Murphy, btw, is repped by CAA, the brand new agency Barbra just signed with.

That post was edited on Oct. 27. The post is on a website that hosts fans blogging about movies. The blogger may have changed something there but there are no new sources for the blogger's information and there is no news that has changed since January 2015. The news then from the producer was that 2016
"It always comes down to business...I think John Barrowman could do it well; he has a following but I don't think he'd fill all the seats. Revisiting the Glee department, Chord Overstreet and evenMatthew Morrison could pull it off."
Overstreet isn't nearly a strong enough performer or actor or singer to pull it off and he doesn't have enough name recognition or a big enough fanbase to float the show. Morrison m
"we shall see, from what i can see (and I assume you can see nothing more) this does not seem like SNL level it seems like Fallon. In any event the short run of the TV show dovetails with a return to Hedwig for the holidays and possibly beyond."
In Neil's own words last fall when the show was announced, his goal is to host a variety show that is a modern-day take on The Ed Sullivan Show. He says that optimally, in five years, he'd like to be a cultural tastema
Some silly TV show is just a sidebar that he was hired to do, and you can be sure they are not paying him what Hedwig could and would.
I don't think that it is necessarily accurate to characterize his upcoming series as a "silly TV show" that "is just a sidebar that he was hired to do." The silly TV show might end up being spot-on, actually, but that would be more a matter of taste, not a statement about the relative value of the show to the
It feels like things are getting off-base here with most of the discussion being about Darren Criss's ticket sales and rankings of various people who have played Hedwig. Both discussions started out at least tangentially related to Taye's Hedwig but the conversations have evolved fairly significantly since. Maybe there are other threads where these conversations could be taking place? Just a thought.
Things have been trending down somewhat since fairly early this year. Overall, in the history of the production, the numbers started strong and, over the course of NPH's run, kept climbing. They went down once he left and Andrew Rannells took over for the remainder of the summer and the early fall. They then went up again during the fall, holiday season, and into early January 2015 with Michael C. Hall. They then went down some with John Cameron Mitchell during the winter and early spring and
