What Are Great Musical Roles That Don’t Sing Much  Jul 14 2020, 01:22:46 PM

Professor Higgins in MFL doesn't really sing. Does some sing-speaking but no actual singing.



Naya Rivera presumed dead  Jul 10 2020, 06:11:56 PM

This actually sounds like a pretty classic suicide to me. But I could be wrong. Really tragic. Her poor son.

“We See You White American Theater” Publishes Demands  Jul 9 2020, 03:07:34 PM

This one is a real head-scratcher:

Production job descriptions must use language that is free of unconscious bias, such as “years of experience” requirements for production staff. !

Production job descriptions must not have education requirements, which, by implying that coming from a certain degree or institution you are somehow more qualified than someone else, create a barrier to the hiring of BIPOC production staff.

 

Huh?



Best Cast of a movie musical ever, what's your favorite?  Jul 8 2020, 04:27:38 PM

The cast of Oklahoma! was pretty great. I loved Gloria Grahame as Ado Annie.

True. Very few actors truly disappear into their roles.

Regardless, I thought Ben was miraculous in DEH, and I

Not having Betsy Struxness in the Hamilton movie does a disservice to the show  Jul 7 2020, 09:12:32 PM

Jesus. This is why we can't have nice things. People were looking forward to this Hamilton film forever and now that it's here and it's awesome people just have to find a reason to be outraged.



Not having Betsy Struxness in the Hamilton movie does a disservice to the show  Jul 7 2020, 06:46:39 PM

Ok ... there's been countess times when I;'ve walked into a show and seen a swing in the show because an ensemble member is out. Even more times when a lead is out and the understudy is on. Audience members mostly suck it up (if it;s like a super duper star then I suppose you can get a refund). This is no different -- this Hamilton was a film of a live show. It had the ensemble that was still with the show at the time filmed along with all of the original leads. 

Moreover


Not having Betsy Struxness in the Hamilton movie does a disservice to the show  Jul 6 2020, 03:08:09 PM

IDGI. She wasn't happy doing the show and left on her own accord. She's getting residual royalties that the OBC gets. She doesn't get the film royalties because she had departed the show by the time of the film. Did she expect that they'd ask her back for the film? 

ETA: she's been posting lots of shots of Hamilton and seems excited and happy about the film.

So heartbreaking. Prayers for his family and friends.;(

Hamilton film awards - Will it happen? Should it?  Jul 5 2020, 02:05:11 PM

If it won't be eligible for an OScar I could see it getting a Golden Globe nomination for Best Musical/Comedy. I mean, it's the Hollywood Foreign Press.



OUR Hamilton Reviews  Jul 5 2020, 01:02:30 PM

From what I understood they filmed it with Leslie. He just didn't want to sign the release for it until some financial negotiations happened. 

This is similar to Cesare Siepi (a Met star bass) who wouldn't sign the release for many Met broadcasts being replayed over SIrius XM. He and the Met had a falling out years ago. When he passed away his children finally allowed Siepi broadcasts to be on the air again.

I've watched Daveed Diggs happy dancing through "The Reynolds Pamphlet" like 10 times now. I laugh every time.

There's this review/op-ed from National Review:

Uh, don;t know what to say about this review except I disagree 100%.



West Side Story (1961)  Jul 4 2020, 11:25:59 AM

The 1961 movie is great except that Richard Beymer is a huge misfire as Tony. He and Natalie Wood had anti-chemistry.



OUR Hamilton Reviews  Jul 4 2020, 01:06:57 AM

Daveed Diggs is an automatic scene-stealer. Every time he speaks, I forget everyone else onstage. He's so funny and sharp. Not sure anyone could ever replace his impeccable timing and humor.

Only if it wins Best Picture, or he wins Best Actor.

Couldn't it get nominations for Score and Song? And then LMM would win an EGOT if he won those.
