I had no idea! I was stuck here on vacation when Sandy happened and when the buses were back up and running, it's the one thing my friend and I went out and did. It was really funny; I now consider myself lucky to have seen it!"
I was also stuck in the city during Sandy! It was a surprise trip, my first time
They’ve changed their marketing copy and now say that show show is “inspired by the exploitation films of the 1970s.” I wonder if they’ve changed the content of the show to be less (potentially) problematic or if they just changed there way they talk about it.
That said, I’m not familiar with the show in its previous or current incarnation, so I can’t actually speak to whether it’s offensive or not. I will say a writing team of all str
Also, "regional premiere" doesn't mean the first regional production anywhere in the country. It means the first production in that region.

The most unapologetic show I’ve ever seen. Larry Owens gives a truly tour de force performance. The show is kind of a mess but that’s okay because life is kind of a mess. I didn’t mind.
I agree that the direction is the weak point. But the cast is superb, and the spirit of the whole thing is so admirable. I saw so many things onstage which I’ve never seen represented off-Broadway before, and it felt like a really special show. Today’s matinee audience went wild. I hope we see more of J
Just got out of tonight’s first preview. It’s a weird show. They’re clearly still working through a lot—the house opened at the time the show was supposed to start, and they started about 15-20 mins late. There were some technical difficulties throughout with Grace’s looper and the set—a stagehand had to come out and help the turntable rotate. It’s certainly unique, and I’m glad this kind of work is being supported by Lincoln Center. But it
Broadway in Chicago posted a photo of their Falsettos Playbill with a new pride logo that has a brick background, and the stripes are now horizontal. Does anyone know if this is what Broadway playbills will look like for the next month as well? I would assume so, yes?

I’ve always known the difference as associates have decision-making power (as long as it’s consistent with the vision set forth by their superior) whereas assistants simply report to their superior and help out. This is mostly from a designer perspective, though, but I believe it carries over to direction and choreography as well.
I walked by the theater and saw that they were doing work and peeked inside... it appears they've completely gutted the orchestra level (likely the mezz as well) and are renovating/redoing a lot for this production. Can't wait to see what it looks like!
Here's the thing. I appreciate this article and its further insight into the mess that was (is?) NERDS (though it leaves out a lot of details that I've read elsewhere that paint a better picture of how it was doomed for the start). But it seems to me that nobody wants to acknowledge that this looks like a terrible and unappealing show that would have flopped hard if it did happen to open on Broadway.
