I think the casting director is at fault! Is the play dated? Yes! But more importantly it was completely miscast. That sunk it.

I think this is probably the best move for him. He could offer a great take on that character. I'm all for a Pal Joey revival, but it would be better for Jackman to lend his power to something fresh.

If anyone read the story, it explains that they just stuck a wig on her head to check it out... This is a feature about the rehearsal process and this wig was part of it. I think that is basically it. No point is judging her based on it. I think she comes off well in the rest of the story.
I am actually sort of sad. I mean--if Good Vibrations can make it... at least I would have been more interested to see this...

I'm sorry--you are totally right. They could be developing something.... Let me rephrase: "I suppose they are not currently scheduled to be on the stage then, but..."

Nick no longer works there, right? Or am I wrong? I remember hearing that he was let go... Does anyone in the know know who replaced him?
Opposite of Sex off-Broadway? May 31
2005, 08:50:37 PM
Did anyone notice that on Broadway.com? I'm surprised... I mean I am not saying those reviews warranted a Broadway run, but, if the show was not coming to Broadway, I sort of assumed it would not be going anywhere...
I wonder if they'll secure that cast. Will Kerry and Karen Ziemba want to do it off-Broadway? I mean I guess they aren't doing anything else, but, I am still not sure...

Hey--I'm excited about The First Wives Club! I mean if anything calls out for the musical treatment...
And poor Solange actually! She has gotten better reviews than anyone this whole time!

Sorry if this has been posted and I'm missing it (and please--no PMs or hate posts if it has--I'm sick and I've been a little behind--forgive me), but there's a cool video on the LW recording on Bway.com. I find recordings interesting, so, maybe I'm partial, but, I like this look behind-the-scenes. There are a lot of clips of the score, which sounds better than I remember. (Though I previously found it completely mediocre so that is not saying much.) And I am sure the trillion Sutton fans will w
Chitty is fun--very family-oriented. The show itself is not great by any means (it's sort of crap), but, the sets are cool and that is a very interesting cast...
Piazza some peope love, but, from what I have heard of it, the score is pretentious. Nevertheless--I am sure it is an impressive artistic achievement, which, is something Chitty isn't.
So it really depends more than anything whether you want to go with someth

Tiny-Toon--How are you so sure he will be back? What happens if they get someone with a slightly bigger "name" to replace him? Or are you saying that part of the story isn't true and they aren't trying to replace him?
