QueenAlice said: "For the record, HAMILTON is a massive huge hit in London. You sort of insinuate that it isn’t as popular there as it is in the states and that’s not true at all. "
That's not quite true. Yes Hamilton is a big hit in London, but you can't compare it to the phenomenon it is in America. it hasn't punctured the wider UK conscious like it has in the states. I think its pretty accurate to say London would close before
Princess Diana Musical, DIANA, Set for World Premiere at La Jolla Playhouse Feb 24

The comparison to Evita is a fair one and it's why I don't think a musical on Diana will ever really work, because it's already basically been done. I remember watching the VHS of the movie with my mum in the 90s and we both turned to eachother (having never seen the show before) how it both reminded us of Diana. So many moments, lyrics, even full songs could be tweaked slightly and then use for Diana.
Diana was no angel and a show that portrays her as a 100% victim with no critical ang

Yes, one production that she had two runs in. If she does London, it will be her third time playing Dolly Levi.Special things like this start to lose excitement after a while - for example, Sara Bareilles doing her third run in Waitress now.

Not at all, extensions are often used as a way for producers to gather interest in advance sales. It's often seen that the larger an extension the worse sign it is (unless it's a mega hit show of course).
Would a Legally Blonde Revival be a bad idea? Oct 6

I wasn't a massive fan of Laura as Elle but she was a million times better than Sheridan who was so miscast. She was nothing like a California valley girl and basically played her slightly ladette self. It was the Sheridan show. It was vastly better with her replacements.
I did think the production itself was better in London though, Broadway was a bit overblown.
Can you take videos during curtain call Aug 27

I would say it is acceptable as I've seen plenty of stage actors film curtain calls and post on social media, including ones who have previously complained about filming!

I'm guess The Show Must Go On and Like A Virgin are rights issues as We Will Rock You probably has the rights to the former and hasn't a Madonna musical been talked about?
EthelMae said: "After reading Page 6 of the Post, and I'm not saying this is total truth, but, unfortunately, this is all too common when "they" want you out after a long term of service. They don't want to pay you in full what you're owed by contract so they torture you hoping you'll leave on your own accord or, perhaps in this case if you're fragile in spirit, decide life is not worth it. Family has already said he was fine and not suicidal. I hope thi
TOO OLD For the Role? Jun 26
2018, 03:02:01 PM
something that has bugged me for a while is how we seem to be so accepting of ageism but when it comes to race or sexuality people are all over it. I remember when the whole Kevin Spacey thing ignited and the scenes in a movie were reshot with Christopher Plummer no one was questioning why an older actor wasn't cast in the first place. why is it acceptable to use prosthetics when there are plenty of older actors who could play the role and who often don't get a shot as Hollywood is so youth ori
Will Frozen make it? May 2
2018, 04:50:04 PM
A weak secondary market does indicate that demand is maybe not as high as they'd hoped, especially if it's not selling out months ahead. pretty sure Disney were hoping for a wicked style juggernaut. The problem is Frozen was very much of the moment, majority of kids have moved on and you now see more frozen products on discount than at premium prices. it doesn't have the nostalgic value that other Disney shows have for adults. it will do well but I also get a little mermaid vibe from it
CHESS at the Kennedy Center Mar 3
2018, 04:26:06 PM
is that Hugh Maynard in that first clip ? if so he gives one of the worst performances I've seen in a musical, best described as a bad ott xfactor audition. trying so hard to show off what he can do with his vocals he loses all sense of performance. this was also a pretty common opinion during the London run.
That Chess video is not great at all, in fact is shockingly poor, but I wouldn't hold miss saigon up as a shining example either

whilst Bette brought in a lot of money, she cost a lot too. this cast will be a lot cheaper to maintain so they may not need to take as much as you'd expect
