I don't understand why the results of an interest survey for students has resulted in any other response besides "okay they're not interested in that!". No one is asking the show to change, they just aren't interested in seeing it. Ensler is an infamous second wave feminist who many consider "behind the times", it's not unreasonable a group of students would want to hear from someone else.
I was at the first preview last night. I rather enjoyed myself. I much prefer a monumental overhaul of a classic than sitting through what we already know just for kicks. The direction is simple and it peels back the show to be something else I haven't really thought Oklahoma as. It's sexy and slow, though sometimes I felt the energy dipped because of it. Rebecca Naomi Jones is a weak link. Ali Stroker is giving a solid performance. Mary Testa is a gift. May we continue to see ex
I really enjoyed this and agree with Brantley for once. I saw The Nap, My Fair Lady, Head Over Heels, & Oklahoma in the same trip and The Nap was the one I keep coming back to. Such fun so wonderfully done.
I don't understand how anyone is being disrespectful when PalJoey started the thread ripping on someone else's work he hasn't even seen yet. Just because you are older or were there or worked with this person doesn't mean you're any more deserving of respect when you're acting like an asshole. I can appreciate and respect the experience PalJoey had with the show without thinking it has to be done that way and only that way for the rest of time.
I think Louderman, Hensen, and Rockwell are the only actors from Mean Girls who could possibly land a nomination. If the committee ends up ruling Louderman in featured and Hennigan leading, (which is what i should be, in my opinion) than I think Louderman gets the featured nod. If she's put in leading I don't see it working out for her.
Was there tonight as well. It's totally fine, if a little draggy. I thought Rashad was good in the first act and great in the second. Everything else is a little unmemorable. Feels like the director saw his group of great actors and said "I'll get out of their way." and it doesn't bode well. Scenes have little movement, everyone is plopped down in one place, and the final scene of Act 1 had so little tension I couldn't believe there was anything at stake. Rashad dese
Denise Gough was the MVP of this production for me. Nathan Lane is brilliant. Andrew Garfield is giving a very loud and showy interpretation but I was not as won over as some others seems to be. James McArdle is giving a stunner of a performance. Lee Pace is serviceable. The hours fly by. I may be in the minority, but I have always preferred Perestroika and this production only furthered that preference. The set change with the snow is magical. The camaraderie among the audience was beau
I was there tonight. The main thing I was shocked by was how tonally different it feels from the movie. The movie felt cool and this feels more like an energetic cartoon world the story of Mean Girls just happened to be dropped into. It's clearly a deliberate choice and when it works, it really works, but it definitely took some adjusting. The opening number is awful and really had me worried about what I was about to get into, but things definitely perk up. I agree the mus
I have a ticket to both parts of Angels is America this upcoming Wednesday the 21st (1:00pm & 7:00pm) that I sadly can no longer use! The seat is in the Front Mezz, Row C, Seat 104 for both parts. I spent $318 originally but am only asking for $210. PM me if interested!
It's fine. The direction is poor. It's a totally decent regional production with Broadway performances. Joshua Henry will win the Tony. Mueller was okay, though she was an attempting an accent that wasn't quite working for her. Lindsay Mendez is a star. The minute Mr. Snow ended you felt the whole audience melt into an exhale. Renee Fleming is kind of just there and sounds pretty. The choreography was very jumpy with a lot of lifts. The final picture just felt cheap when it could&
This is one of my favorite movies of all time and I am INCREDIBLY skeptical of Chenoweth attached to this. If she's playing anyone, it should be Helen Sharp. I don't see her as a Madeline. Now, Sherie Rene Scott would be an incredible Madeline.
I saw this tonight. I quite enjoyed myself. The premise was interesting, the acting was strong, and it didn't cut itself short. It's definitely not going to be everyone's cup of tea but it's a small little rock of a play.
