Johanna Day in Lombardi? Apr 8

Playbill Online doesn't have a stand-by listed for Marie at the moment. Maybe they'll have an update next week? I hope Johanna Day is the new stand-by--I will see her in anything.
Your Year In Theatre - 2010 Dec 22
2010, 03:11:18 PM
Favorites: 1) Brief Encounter--Great performances, gorgeous production values, and I left grinning like an idiot! 2) Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson--No, it's not the best musical to come along in the last five years, but I had a blast and couldn't get the score out of my head. Oh, and Ben Walker... 3) Merry Wives of Windsor--Caught this tour of The Globe UK's production at Pace. I loved seeing this less pe

Last night was just further proof that they're absolute aces. If they hadn't handled the situation with the calm and order that they did, there would have been a panic.
So You Can Bring Babies Into A Theater Now? Apr 16

It is technically the policy not to admit children under the age of 4 precisely for all the reasons mentioned: they can't sit still, they can't keep quiet, etc. In the times I've seen the house manager makes an exception, he or she seats the parents near the exits so that if the child starts up a ruckus, they can get out quickly and disturb surrounding patrons as little as possible. Whether the parents are considerate enough to actually remove their children is another story...
Enron is a big YES for best play this year! Apr 16

For anyone who might be interested in seeing 'Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room,' check your T.V. listings. I did a search last night (yes, this play has piqued my curiosity to learn more), and it turns out it's going to be on one of the business channels next week.
Who's going to ENRON tonight?? Apr 9

The vomiting was truly terrible, and I believe it all came from one group who must have eaten something bad somewhere. Aside from the woman who caused the hold up at the beginning of the show, two others projectile vomited at the back of the orchestra and a third fell in front of the accessible bathroom. It definitely affected my ability to focus on the show.
That said, I liked it, but not as much as I thought I would. Of course, it was the first preview and, from what I've heard, the
Love, Loss, and What I Wore. Mar 22

I didn't expect to love this show, but I was pleasantly surprised. So endearing and moving, and funny! My cast (Katie Finneran, Natasha Lyonne, Carol Kane, Lucy DeVito, and Capathia Jenkins) was also excellent and had great rapport. I liked the simplicity of the piece, but I can see how it would irk people who expected to get a little more for what they paid. And it is fairly chick flick-y, but that's what the Ephrons do! I hope people keep coming to see it.
I also adored Mitchel Federan in The Boy From Oz and William Ulrich in Nine.
Non-Equity Auditions!? Mar 5
2010, 10:50:37 AM
Not only are non-Equity auditions crowded, but people get there to start a list as early as 2 a.m. I'm not going to start in on the whole lists issue, but know that if you get there any later than 7:30 a.m., you're in trouble.
NINE...which recording? Jan 3
2010, 11:03:10 AM
I am a huge fan of the revival recording. It's really well produced, and the performances are very true to what you would have seen on-stage. That said, I'd also recommend owning the two disc remastered OBC (because it's the original cast!) and the London concert (because the chorus is huge, so the ensemble numbers are incredible).

Met a few of the "guys in skinny ties" afterwards and showed them around the city. I had a really hard time getting them away from the Christmas tree, but they were extremely appreciative. I'm still sore.
(My morning coffee is shooting out of my nose as I read this thread. Love you guys!)
