Is he a "teen heartthrob"? I expect most of his fans are in their early 20s to 30s (between TV and theater). Lots of people became fans after Newsies but I never saw it, and possibly Smash (never seen it either). Also I don't even know where t
I was going to say what BenjaminNicholas2 and broadfan327 just said. And I will say it still!
The New York Pops is the star of their shows, and a conductor is the lead of his/her orchestra, so that makes Steve Reineke a star of the Pops. He made sure we cheered loudly for the orchestra, deservedly so. A guest performer is a guest performer. What I see is a great rapport between the performer and the conductor, and somehow others interpret that differently, which is fine. You hear a pat
I know I will always end up overpaying for something I didn't like/love, it's just part and parcel to this hobby, which happens to be extremely subjective.
I thought last night was wonderful. I'm a fan of New York Pops and I've seen them a few times. Steve Reineke is always fun to watch and brings so much joy to his work. It did irk me one year when it was supposed to feature Jonathan Groff (reason I bought the ticket), but Groff dropped out and they added several singe

Richard Roxburgh conveyed more menace in a single scene than the Duke in the musical did for the entire show"
Blanchard looks great, and I loved her accent. It was her vocalsand comedic timing that was off..."
Darn! Now I really want to see Megan Hilty in this role. I saw a live performance of her "Suddenly Seymour", which is what turned me onto this musical and then I fell in love with the movie. I can imagine why she'd crush this role; her singing is gorgeous and I saw her in Nois
We've just hit the off peak season so not surprising regarding last minute ticket availability. Very happy the show makes last minute tickets affordable; now is a great time to grab them. Show still sells out daily, so I do hope it continues a healthy run.
I just marathon'ed it again. Most people I talk to seem very interested in seeing the show but the time commitment always surprises them. It is definitely a barrier for some people, but I am convinced marathon is the best way

As far as it getting dark, even they made a joke about it. By 40 min in,I knew my number by heart, did you really need light?"
Hah! Seems like you and I are showing at the same places at the same time. First Betrayal
People are only posting about winning so here's the flip side.
How lucky do you feel? Be prepared to lose. I was prepared to do just that (we ended up deciding on a late dinner after) but it was still disheartening. Losing means spending an hour of your time concentrating very hard and listening to Not Your Number. I wouldn't have done it without company because it feels extra sad to lose alone lol. It was extra not-fun when it got dark because then you've already been stan

The plot is SO SILLY! I believe Andrew Polec described it as "Peter Pan" and "Romeo and Juliet" had a rock and roll love child. Maybe... on drugs.
Jordan Catalano said: "I didn’t know Steers was going into “Six”! That’s VERY exciting to hear."
She actually said her schedule was crazy, as she's going into rehearsals immediately after Bat to join the Six London cast this fall (September?) and will be here in February. I'm pretty sure she meant she was coming with it and not only that the show is going to be here. Given she came here with Bat, I don't think its out of
I went back via rush last night and had a blast, after having done all my research to understand what is "happening" and becoming very familiar with the music/ lyrics. Not being confused helps a lot! I found focusing on the actors and ignoring the confoundingly bad choreography made it a much better show. The show and performances actually made me emotional this time, instead of utterly bewildered!
For anyone curious about rush, it is SUPER easy. I picke
I love James Corden and I especially love when he sings but I agree that was not good, but it also wasn't a parody of the song so much as a poorly written rap sung-spoken to the music.
I found myself loving the movie even though at first I thought it would be a silly kids movie. I kept thinking to myself this music IS SO CATCHY, who wrote it? (Also surprised it was a musical movie.) Of course, it was the Kirkpatricks. It could work but I don't think there's enough content t

I have no interest in who this person nor interest in hearing what she said, but I'm here to support one of my favorite shows (and movies) -- Billy Elliott -- and the boys who portrayed him.
Those Billy's are talented as heck and there are at least three famous Billy's -- Jamie Bell (original film Billy), Dean-Charles Chapman (Tommen Baratheon on Game Of Thrones) and Tom Holland (Spider-man). Jamie became famous from his award-winning work in the movie and I'm pretty sure Tom landed th
