1) Hadestown- wait for me 2) Cher show - medley (hopefully show off the costumes). Id also like to see Cher join them 3) moulin rouge - preview. Maybe a little come what may or your song 4) a huge James Corden opening with Cher and Betty Buckley. Bernadette and Patti Lupone filled with gorgeous dancers like Charlie Williams. Ryan Steele. 5) a Hugh Jackman. Neil Patrick Harris And James corde

It is too bad to hear that no one thinks the Cher show could be a contender. 1) the tony awards viewership would see a bump with a Cher appearance. 2) I really thought it was better than the prom.
I really hope they don’t just do one of those paid for 60 sec slot like they’ve done in the past. None of those to me left anything to be remembered.
Princess Diana Musical, DIANA, Set for World Premiere at La Jolla Playhouse Mar 11
2019, 01:08:58 AM
Just got back from Diana. Personally I loved it. Yes there were some things that I think need to be worked out. That snap click song and the queens ballad need to be gone and reworked. The cast I found phenomenal. Truly incredible. The costumes divine. I enjoyed much of the score. The ending did come really quickly. But as did her life. I think they really touched on many likely truths to the situation. Although dramatized similplified. I do agree that maybe a bit of a reworking to make
I want Aaron Tveit as radames. Cynthia Erivo as Aida and I used to want lea Michele as amneris but I would probably now more likely enjoy Megan hilty or annaleigh ashford or Bonnie Milligan Or someone else
That is AWESOME!!! Yes please report! I was still hoping My Fair Lady would get Julie Andrews, Maggie Smith, or Judi Dench, etc. to come back on Broadway as Mrs Higgins."
I would take any of them (that’s my hope as well) or a little night music.
I would just like one more chance to see them live
Awaited returns of actors Feb 27

I was just too late to London when McKellen did it in 2017 and was just too early this last time in the west end. I also was just too late his last time on Broadway same as Helen mirren. Such a disappointment.

It is one thing doing several takes of a scene in a movie but doing it live must be scary, worry about a senior moment. God bless those that can still do it well !"
I completely agree. But I love and have so much respect for those who can still and are willing to still create their craft. &nb
Awaited returns of actors Feb 27
2019, 12:04:55 PM
With the news of Maggie smiths return to the stage. Im wondering who people would like to see return for another hurrah. Im talking about actors around 75+ Making a return.
I know it has been said that Angela Lansbury is done with theatre (as much as I loved seeing her).
Maggie Smith And Julie Andrews were on the top of my list. Others would be Ian McKellan, Helen Mirren, Micheal Gambon (Though he as well has said hes done). Judy Dench.
Maggie Smith Feb 27

Oh I hope she returns to Broadway. Between her and Julie Andrews. Those two I have been awaiting some hopeful return for years.

For the record I’d like to give Julia Roberts another chance. And forget all about her original debut.
Gaga with an Oscar. Next a tony Feb 24

I wonder how long it will take for her to make her broadway debut. My guess after she wraps Vegas in a year and a half. A New York stage project will be next. 2022!
Threshold of same type shows on Broadway Feb 24
2019, 09:37:27 AM
Typically speaking. What would you say is the limit of the number of shows one type (Dinsey or jukebox or Andrew Lloyd Webber etc) that Broadway can withstand before it affects the grossed of one or more of the shows. I keep thinking that typically the most of any of these has been three. And the fourth one has been the breaker. Ie. cats sunset phantom and school of rock. Or Tarzan Mary poppins lion king beauty and the beast.
I can really never think of a time when Sondheim had
Ain't Too Proud the next Jersey Boys? Feb 24

I sure hope it doesn’t out perform the Cher show. Friends in Toronto went to see it and weren’t too impressed they thought it was more a Jersey boys lite. And a been there done that type of show
The Cher Show Feb 23
2019, 10:22:20 AM
Personally. After making the forewarned mistake of seeing King Kong with a 59 dollar rush ticket. I would say the Cher show is at least worth a lower priced reg ticket. I would also say that the Cher show will run at least a year. Probably my guess would be 2-2.5.
2019, 12:25:48 AM
See there are some jukebox shows to me that do seem to have more depth to them than just a hopeful cash cow. I thought a show like mamma Mia worked well. And shows like jersey boys and beautiful were well crafted. Honestly I did have fun at the Cher show. I don’t look at it as groundbreaking or anything. But it was fun. And was an escape for the three hours.
What has drove me made is the idea that every catelogue of songs is now somehow warranted for a broadway theatre. Or some ar
