I've heard it said Transport Group is a theater company that's definitely on the move.
Would a revival of OH! CALCUTTA! succeed on Broadway now? Oct 18

A show that was groundbreaking and a perfect fit for the late 60's/early 70's with the dawning of the sexual revolution would in 2019, I think feel hopelessly dated. When every strand of sexual activity can be viewed with merely a mouse click, the idea of paying $189 just to see nudity would seem to have limited appeal for most people. It's sure not helping Linda Vista sell tickets and the nudity in that show is hardly gratuitous.

R.I.P. to Bill. 97! He had a nice run. An underappreciated actor, I'll always remember him most for the head comedy writer role he played in one of my favorite films, My Favorite Year.

He's not become a huge star but he's working steadily in movies and TV be it acting or voice. There's absolutely no reason to return to the same role he left 7 1/2 yea

What possible sense would it make for him from a career standpoint to come back to the show now? Unless, it's a one off for charity or something like that.

I liked Betrayal, loved Linda Vista but IMHO, The Sound Inside is the best play of the season.

Look at Green's review and that's what basically every other critic thought. Not exactly a surprise. Anyone who's seen it knows it's the best play of the season.

Maybe they'll dig up Ike and prop him in a chair in the first row. "I finally made it to Broadway, b*tches."
I have the utmost respect for Charles McNulty. I think he's one of the best theater critics in the country but I think he's off base here. He makes some good points but there are also some cheap shots and his general skew towards a preference for newer, more experimental works I think really affected his objectivity. Is the current season at CTG's 3 theaters weak? Yes, of course. But we spent literally 2 months bashing them when it was announced in the spring

Truthfully Miatamel, I watched the movie when it came out a few times in the early 2000's and have it on DVD somewhere but it's probably been 15 years since I've seen it so I'll yield to Mile2Go2's opinion on that. I will
Falsettolands said: "What I'm really getting at is,I believe the play is so poorly written that psychologizing Wheelers actions is a waste of time. It doesn't deserve that, because aside from Wheeler, not a single character onstage is shaded with any sort of complexity that one generally looks for in a good play with actual stakes and plot."
If you think both of the women with whom Wheeler is involved and especially Jules, are stock, one note c
Your first comment was that the costumes were "extremely ugly and unflattering". Now you're saying your concern is actually that they are too flattering and too nice looking given the character is living on the street. Well, that's not contradictory at all. If you feel that strongly about it, talk to the director and share your concerns and suggestions and let that person instruct the costumer to make any changes he/she feels are appropriate. It's the director&
Of the two you mentioned, Mean Girls would clearly be the better choice unless your daughter is a diehard fan of the Beetlejuice movie. Having said that, as was suggested previously Moulin Rouge! is a far better musical and a far more memorable experience than either of the two you suggested however tickets are not cheap and there really aren't discounts available. You'd have to decide if it's something you want to spring for. But if you do, don't worry about her being to
Falsettolands said: "This play is practicallytailored to an older generation that hasn't necessarily jumped on the "political correctness" train and probablymisses Curb Your Enthusiasm. And truthfully, that's completely fine."
Do you actually believe Letts wrote this play for an older generation to positively identify with Wheeler and think "I love this guy and his perspective on life. That's how we should live if people weren't so damn
Goldstar has seats in the last 2 rows for many performances of The Play That Goes Wrong for $25. With fees, it's probably $35. It's a small theater so it's only 13 or 14 rows back and it's a great view. It's a cheaper price than TKTS and you can buy them well in advance so you don't have to bother with TKTS getting them the day of.
