Yeah..if Lehman Trilogy were to be happening this fall, there's no way it wouldn't be on sale yet...at least you would think...

Jujamcyn Theaters was the 4th-billed producer of COMPANY in London. The 2nd and3rd names are also Americans. Whether he is co-Lead Producing the NY engagement or if he was simply a co-producer in London, there is no doubting his involvement in the show.

YvanEhtNioj said: "Early reports were that he was taking trips to London frequently to scout out the show. There was a rumor that he's partner with Shubert like he did with Angels In America to produce it."
Hadestown was playing at the same time in London which would explain that. He's not attached to Company.
I should note that I do not in any way disagree that gay characters ideally should be played by someone with the experience because it would be more authentic. Andrew Garfield really stepped in it when he made those comments about choosing not to be gay during Angels. Roles, however, are given based on auditions. For this play, I highly doubt the performers were offer-only, so they indeed had to have the best audition to land the parts. Having seen the play, they're phenomenal at what the

Of course. At the same time, this is a small community. If the role is for someone who is 18 or younger than 24, then I understand your point. The main lead role is an openly out gay man in his 30s. I'm sure there are actors who are in their 30s who are openly out these days and who have the t

I would personally choose a play or musical where most of the creative team are female. It would be a good way of showing that Waitress has succeeded in allowingfemale creative teams to flourish on Broadway. The Secret Life of Bees has a feamle book writer and lyricist, s
QueenAlice said: "Trust me! With Rudin's shows it is almost always financial. A lot of the funding for CAROUSEL and SHUFFLE ALONG (along with the other shows you mention)was finalized during previews. That doesn't mean the show itself might not undergo changes and experimentation in previews, but as we know most shows on Broadway these days make relatively few changes compared to the amount of time allotted for previews."

Apparently producers tried to pay for a performance and Tony producers shot them down saying they didn't have time for it inthe broadcast. Regarding a commercial, only Best Musical/Revival/Play nominees are allowed to purchase commercial spots. I know this sounds dumb, but it
Jordan Catalano said: "That’s going to be exhausting for the actors. This play is longer than “Angels” and is at the very least as emotionally draining, if not more. Personally, I needed that time to really digest part one before I saw part two but I am curious what it will feel like just watching them both straight through."
Angels was at least 7.5 hours in length and is a much headier play in structure and execution. This is hardly as hard to cons

Actually, arts journalism is thriving; there is more than at any time in recorded history. What's in a crisis is the top tier old school print media that was once the exclusive club that the DCC represented. Interestingly, all of the women currently on the DCC have top tier outlets for their writing, w

To contradict that as a reason that Full Monty wouldn't come of anything, that Parade revival is being looked at. I've heard 2nd hand accounts from Alfred Uhry that they are looking to bring it back to Broadway with Ben Platt as Leo (unfortunately *eye roll*)"
