Just a thought (sorry if others posted the same - i did a search). I loved the original Blood Brothers. Do you think Susan Boyle can act? She slays Wild Horses and it made me think of Blood Brothers. Thoughts?
I saw the 2pm matinee on Saturday which was the first time since seeing the original cast. There were a lot of highlights but none included Mark Ballas. He seems like a good guy and his dancing was fine.
I would totally avoid the subway from the AirTrain especially with bags -- lots of lugging suitcases, stairwells and walking. More direct and quicker is getting on the Long Island Railroad (LIRR) It is a little more expensive but you just take the Air Train to Jamaica Station - then LIRR to NY Penn Station.
Like I said... I was in the lobby downstairs during the intermission. I did return about 5 minutes before the second act and didn't notice anything. I totally respect the person who wrote this I just didn't see it happen... I certainly didn't hear anyone talking but, yes I was near the back of the orchestra. If it was as bad as everyone said I believe other people would have been shushing really loud and that I would have heard. There was none of that. If indeed the poster is corr
Well I was there last night sitting in the orchestra section and this certainly did not happen. It was the 8 o'clock show and they started about 11 minutes late. I have a picture of my ticket if anyone needs to see it. Unless it happened in the balcony or during intermission... It did not happen. Not even sure why someone would post this. Again if it was done during the intermission I was in the lobby, But I certainly would have heard people chatting and fighting if they caused
Thanks for the input Scott . I have been a member of TheaterMania Gold Club for about 10 years now. I have to admit this was the year I wasn't going to join again because I felt like the offerings were just not there anymore. To me it all started when they changed their website. I did call them right before I was going to renew asking them to explain to me what has been happening. As always, their customer service was top rate and she said they were going to fix the site soon. That has be
"While I don't find myself overbooked this season, both groups had offerings for Bway and off-Bway I had wanted to see, two sets of tickets makes the membership worth the $$$. I have got 16 sets of tickets from GC since July and just as many from PbP. Well worth it. "
I agree with you Pammy - I have always loved it and the offerings were so good for MANY years. The staff couldn't have been nicer either. I am happy
Wow - Thanks for all the messages. There is a good shot that I cancel it in May. I also called them trying to figure out what was up. The woman who answered was very sweet but kept reiterating that there have been some great shows up -Blah Blah Blah. I'd have rather her say. It has been a liittle slow and this is the reason, instead of touting the two broadway shows that were up for a second 3 months ago.
I wonder if Scott left he was always sending emails and fol
I have been a member of the Gold club for about 8 years now. I have recommended it to everyone and have seen so many shows (good and bad) Is anyone else noticing that there are less shows than ever? It has been a terrible year with their offerings. Is there a better theater club that you could recommend? My membership is coming up for renewal and I was hoping I could hear your thoughts.
Hidden church in Times Square... Sep 29
2014, 12:24:59 PM
John's is a great Pizza option in midtown and they take large groups too. This used to be the chapel for The Covenant House. This was the place where runaways were able to live here (many outreach programs)during the 70's and 80's (I believe). It was on the nasty stretch of 8th avenue nothing like it is today. I was in the chapel a couple of times while it belonged to Covenant House because my friend worked there(small chapel not like the writer said). I guess that means it was something else (b
Why do people leave? Sep 29
2014, 10:52:47 AM
It all depends but leaving is something that I don't plan on doing. Many years ago, I was a casting director and used to see about 3 shows a week, after work. By the time intermission came along, if I wasn't interested, I would leave. It was a long day starting at 10 and not getting home till very late, so I appreciated an early night. Plus I didn't always have comps. Remember the shows used to start at 8pm not at 7pm. I also loved when I saw a great performance and called them in and they booke
NOISES OFF revival... Feb 12
2014, 04:18:44 PM
This is one of my favorite shows. Loved the OBC as well the replacements. I thought there were a few funny parts in the revival but nothing like the impact of the original. I also saw Harriet Harris at The NJ Shakespeare Festival in Madison NJ. She really nailed it. Andrea sounds like a great choice too.

re: 10 most important American plays? Dec 4
2009, 10:08:36 AM
Important about August Osage County? I thought it was beautifully written (and performed) and dealt with many issues Americans deal with Alcoholism, Monogamy, Suicide, Addition, Control. I guess to me it seems like a reflection of reality. That is why I would put it among the most important american plays.
I thought it was interesting that you mentioned August: Osage County and not say--The House of Blue Leaves or M Butterfly. These are shows that I found important.
I hear good things about the show. Please private email me if you can meet at the theatre at 1:45pm. Leave your email if interested and I will check back tomorrow before 11:00am.

Seriously--try to get out and see it before it closes. I saw it last night and took NJT out there. I rode the midtown direct to Madison and got there in 55 minutes. The ride home was a little difficult because the play let out at 10:50 and rushed to make the 11:03 back to NYC with a change of trains at Newark Broad Street.
Harriet was incredible--and might I add that she should have been in the revival on Bdwy. This is a much better cast. Well done--Great Show.
