Artwork That Never Was  Jul 21 2020, 07:15:56 AM



I think this was the pre-broadway poster for Wicked??? Might have given away too much of the plot.

- NYTimes did a profile of James McMullan about his posters for Lincoln Center Theatre, including a fascinating development of "The King and I"

- David Edward Byrd chronicles a few of his poster designs including "Follies&


Broadway Musicals that Deserve Film Adaptations or Remakes?  Jun 16 2020, 01:47:23 PM

“Miss Saigon” - if done and adapted right could be an Oscar contender

“The Color Purple” - would be a great TV movie...maybe two parter.

“Carousel” - remake would be great

“Hello, Dolly!” - TV movie with Bette Midler would be amaaaazing.

Oh god with a simple post title like that I thought she tweeted something controversial and she’s the next one to be cancelled. 

She’s underrated!



Lea Michele Is A Good Person  Jun 2 2020, 12:24:22 PM

Cue follow up non-apology tweet/post/video saying it was not her intention to hurt people / it was the actions of her youth / she has grown from her experiences / promises to do better, with an attached monetary donation. It’s getting predictable at this point.

PLAYBILL Covers of the 2019-2020 Season  Sep 9 2019, 01:28:29 PM

Still confused about the actual name for the Helen Hayes Theatre. Second Stage website, Wikipedia, and the playbill for Lobby Hero have it as the Hayes Theater. Subsequent playbills and Playbill.com have it as the Helen Hayes Theater.



Phantom ticket 'scam'?  Aug 22 2019, 05:18:30 PM

DoTheDood said: "So in theory, a show could sell a single $1 in the very back of the theater for a single night with ever new block of tickets and be able to blaster "$1 ticket available" on their advertising? Sounds like an episode of "Nathan For You""

This does happen in other industries, for example Megabus always advertises their $1 seats, which does exist and in limited quantity, just to entice people to buy. 



Leading Roles that Don’t Sing Much  Aug 8 2019, 08:47:27 PM

Julian Marsh from 42nd Street? Or is he more of a featured role?

I’m tempted to say Fantine and Grizabella, though I know they’re featured, I feel their iconic status/songs often propel them to above the title credits for their actors.



What performance(s) do you wish there were archive/bootleg footage of that you’ve never been able to find?  Aug 2 2019, 09:08:35 PM

1993 revival of My Fair Lady with Melissa Errico. All I’ve seen is Wouldn’t It Be Loverly from the thanksgiving (?) parade.



Eliza? - My Fair Lady Revival 2018  Jul 9 2019, 12:19:52 PM

Did anyone see Shereen Ahmed as Eliza? If so how was she?



What show should the palace theatre reopen with in 2021  Feb 18 2019, 05:36:45 PM

The long awaited revival of “Funny Girl” would be wonderful.

Goodness that rendering of her hair is unsettling. It looks like a cross between a brillo pad and....lower body hair.

It flopped around more than usual. Also was he wearing fangs during curtain call? Cute!

Joseph and his Dreamcoat ?



Betty Buckley in Hello Dolly  Sep 26 2018, 07:26:19 AM

Just noticed in that video they have "christmas" lights instead of lamps above the hudson river valley scene!



Broadway shows with no Standing Ovation  Sep 15 2018, 09:36:28 AM

There were a few people that did, but I refused to stand up during the bows for "The Parisian Woman." What a wreck!

Is it weird giving one of the cast members a closing night gift? How likely are they to do stage door for this final show? I just want to show my appreciation (to Gavin Creel specifically) and was thinking of just dropping a package or handing it to security to be delivered. Sorry, not really sure about gifting etiquette.
