Putting It Together: How Stephen Sondheim and I Created "Sunday in the Park with George"  Aug 25 2020, 03:37:03 AM

The most deserving musical winner of the Pulitzer!



Jay's ANYONE CAN WHISTLE recording is  Aug 15 2020, 08:58:29 AM

Maybe this time...



Cringe moments in otherwise great shows  Aug 15 2020, 08:56:19 AM

The witch levitation in the original Into the Woods



Gender swapped Tell Me On A Sunday  Jul 24 2020, 06:23:24 PM

The company I work for requested permission to run a season with 3 different actors in rep: a young woman, an older woman and a man.  We were told to wait for a decision- it never came and we moved on.

No such thing as a new idea.

 



UK etc. Theatres Reopening  Jul 17 2020, 06:08:43 PM

It's more smoke and mirrors from Boris- if theatres "can" re-open, they can't claim financial support.  But the reality is that the reduced capacities will render the economics impossible for many producers.

Not to mention that any spike in infections will lead to a wild witch-hunt.



Cooper Howell/dancebelts/um....  Jun 5 2020, 06:52:07 AM

I applaud his bravery and clarity, and wish him every success.



Musicals that were announced but never materialised.  May 27 2020, 06:00:59 PM

Whistle Down the Wind was a dreary show and Gale Edwards was a dull director on this and JCS at the Lyceum.  So bland.



RIP Larry Kramer  May 27 2020, 01:49:52 PM

The passing of a legend of a man.  I feel a little numb and very heavy-hearted.



Musicals that were announced but never materialised.  May 25 2020, 07:02:57 AM

There's going to be a SCANDAL on Broadway, starring Swoosie Kurtz and stage by Michael Bennett.

Oh no there isn't.



A little night music original production information  May 24 2020, 07:56:54 AM

Lovely to hear that about Jean Simmons, Gaveston!



CONFIRMED: FUNNY GIRL REVIVAL SHUT DOWN  May 24 2020, 05:33:41 AM

Dollypop said: "Betty White is set to play Mrs Brice to Loretta Swit's Fanny"

Dollypop, you've brought delight to my day with that sentence



What musical is said to be unpopular and obscure, but actually isn't?  May 23 2020, 04:45:19 AM

On this board nowadays, anything over 10 years old seems to be obscure.



Best Broadway song ever?  May 16 2020, 08:22:58 AM

Songs have to do different jobs, don't they, so it's definitely apples and oranges.

Other than those listed I'd drop in

The Best of Times

Comedy Tonight

One Day More

He Lives in You

I'm Still Here

And I'm Telling You I'm Not Going

Don't Rain on My Parade

Big Spender

Aquarius



Frozen on Broadway - Where did they go wrong?  May 16 2020, 08:17:09 AM

I'd be very interested to see Bob Crowley's designs.  He is a brilliant craftsman.



Old revival of Anyone Can Whistle  May 7 2020, 10:01:03 AM

I truly believe Anyone Can Whistle's "cynicism" would be considered almost charming in this cynical age.  Rather like 'Chicago'- what's all the fuss about?

So many great songs in this show, one day its time will come.



Jay's ANYONE CAN WHISTLE recording is  May 7 2020, 09:57:12 AM

There's a lot of activity on Jay Records Facebook about this; I think it really will be here soon.

I can't wait!  But I have to.



This friday ALW will stream the Broadway version of BY JEEVES  May 4 2020, 07:46:14 PM

yeah we won't see anything that was unreleased



This friday ALW will stream the Broadway version of BY JEEVES  May 4 2020, 06:06:05 PM

He's scraping the barrel now, isn't he?  Really not much left in the vault unless he starts showing previously unreleased material



Samantha Pauly of Six comments on bootleg of herself  May 4 2020, 03:37:16 AM

Quick, somebody trot out "mental health"

 



Patti LuPone didn't like 90th Birthday 'Ladies who lunch'  May 4 2020, 03:33:34 AM

Very good point.

But it was only a bit of fun, made a change to be honest, and I don't care what PL thinks about anything anyway.

The only person who can be territorial about that song is Stephen Sondheim!
