I saw a horrible production of Assassins my sophomore year of high school. I couldn't hear a word the actors were saying, but the music was catchy. I remembering going home that night and listening to the soundtrack on Spotify while doing my homework. I didn't expect it, but Assassins led me to a real interest in presidential assassinations which led to an interest in history in general, and now, four years later, I'm studying to be a history teacher all because of this one musica
Hey all! Assassins is my favorite musical and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find it on vinyl? I know its a fairly niche show, and I've checked all the obivous places (Ebay, Amazon) and came up with nothing. I don't care if it's the original cast or the 2004 one, just hoping to own my fave musical for my record player!
I agree with the person who mentioned Mulaney and Kroll in Oh, Hello! I'd been a huge fan of Mulaney's for a couple years so seeing him live was amazing. There were only about 10-15 people waiting at the stagedoor and we all gushed about how funny the show was, you could tell everyone was a geniune fan. The security guard told us fun facts about the theater and told stories about Mulaney and Kroll, it was so much fun. When they came out they spend a minute or two having a conversation
Hey all! Sorry if this post is annoying but I would really love to hear all of your recommendations. I'm currently a history major who got here thanks to Sondheim's Assassins, and I guess I have a niche interest in historical musicals (Parade, 1776, Clinton the musical, the Fix, Ragtime, etc) and I would love if anyone had some suggestions for more musicals that I might enjoy. Thank you!!
I saw She Loves Me the night it was taped and I don't recall doing anything special in terms of giving permission to be taped. I bought my tickets a few weeks before they announced they were doing the live stream though, so maybe that had something to do with it? They did have signs before entering that said that by entering we agreed to be filmed
In theory stagedooring is nice: it's a chance to thank the actors for their work and get a picture or autograph, and the actors get to meet some fans. It's not for everyone, actors and theater patrons alike. But I have to say it's really sad how crazy things have gotten. In Chicago whenever I see a show it's very calm, usually 10-20 people, no barricades, no security. You can have conversations with the actors and everyone is patient. But New York is a totally different story!
Some of the songs from this are pretty good, I particularly like the opening song and the finale. However, I think that the show itself is just... eh. I've read the book and wasn't a big fan, but I like Vizzini's other book.

From Sardi's to Dolly Apr 4
2018, 07:56:15 PM
My family had two options for reservation times at Sardi's tomorrow: 4 pm or 5:15. We are seeing Hello Dolly at 7 pm too, so do y'all think that we would have enough time to get to Dolly with a 5:15 reso? I like to be early to shows, ideally 6:15-6:30 and I've never been to Sarai'a so idk how long it takes. It's right across the street from the theater tho, but I just thought i'd hear what you guys had to say. Thanks!
I think that Tom Kenny having a cameo would be a great idea! Obviously I don't know him personally, but he seems like the type of person who would love to do it too. However, there is the question of if that will even bring in an audience..... I'm 17 and grew up on the cartoon so personally it would be a draw for me (and a couple friends of mine too) but I don't think any children would really care. Maybe the parents would though?
Assassins is one of my favorite shows of all time, but I agree: any major production in this political climate (or any, I suppose) is bound to be attacked by people who only see it at surface level, or haven't even seen it at all. It would be extremely difficult to do, and I feel like everyone involved would be tip-toeing around the whole time to make sure no one gets mad.
I just got put in charge of making all the Audrey 2's for my school's production of Little Shop. I really need some ideas on how to make the final stage of her transformation, I have no idea how to create something so massive! I also would love if someone could refer me to a cheap replica of a smaller Audrey 2 that isn't like 150 dollars like I've seen so far. Any advice is greatly appreciated!
