4th of July poll: Favorite American History Theater That's NOT Hamilton?  Jul 4 2020, 09:05:20 AM

Including Hamilton, it's Assassins. 

Caroline Or Change & Birthday Candles Officially Coming In 2021  Jun 27 2020, 01:15:46 AM

I am poking by head back onto this board just to say that it is a perfect title. 

Musicals that were announced but never materialised.  May 23 2020, 02:29:37 PM

All these years, and it's still breaking my heart that George Takei was fleeced by utterly amateur writers and obviously incompetent producers who appealed to something very personal and important. His story deserved so much better.

BJR said: "Was this production similar to Gold's, or a new interpretation?"

Quite similar, particularly to the original proscenium staging.

Finding Neverland.

I have never felt so personally insulted and assaulted by lyrics.

Wondered if this thread title referred to Forrest Gump. 

Not to give the producers of Pretty Woman, Mrs. Doubtfire, etc. any ideas.

Sounds like the Papermill Hunchback all over again. Still devastated over how absolutely amateurish and cloying that production was, after all those years of waiting. The nepotism has got to stop. Imagine that next we'll get Pocahontas with an ensemble of "trees" (it's just a burlap sack put on right in front of our eyes, is that CLEVER or what?!) who pave over the entire show with school pageant narration.

The rush is impossible.

I miss in-person rush so much.

The Inheritance - Previews  Jan 15 2020, 08:18:52 PM
I did rush today and got a great seat in the third row. And I arrived just before curtain to try, so definitely recommend rush to anyone who really wants to see this.

But I was deeply unimpressed with the writing and won't be going back for Part 2. I've happily sat through 12 and 24-hour-long shows, but these three hours were interminable. It would just be a bad soap with sitcom jokes if it didn't constantly take shortcuts toward affectations of momentous meaning and communal history w

CSC Assassins update  Dec 12 2019, 12:11:39 PM
I enjoyed Doyle's earlier Sondheim productions, but thought Pacific Overtures was utterly tacky and undergrad. May give this a chance since Assassins doesn't really require a very imaginative execution to play.

Moderators, we all need clarification from you.  Dec 6 2019, 09:36:11 AM

I just want to pop in and say how much I enjoyed Tammy Blanchard in this at first preview. I think that she is bringing an old Hollywood actress quality that is faithful to the character but different from Ellen Greene's, where other major productions have basically featured imitations. I was quite moved by her as well. The production is good.

This is kind of cool. Makes me want to see the show for the first time since the season it opened. 

re: Best Musical Theatre Song of All-Time (Pick ONLY One)  Oct 31 2018, 11:37:56 PM

Depends on the day. 

Today it's "Lot's Wife" by Tesori and Kushner.

Hilarious how many people are flipping their wigs about the anachronistic language, like it's not on purpose.

What Caryl Churchill play should I read first?  Oct 7 2018, 11:44:34 PM

Cloud Nine. 

KING KONG - Previews  Oct 6 2018, 11:59:51 PM

I've been waiting to hear if this score is anything before letting myself get at all excited for Beetlejuice... :/ 

A Star Is Born review. WOW!  Oct 6 2018, 08:25:31 AM

It was alright. Mostly made me want to watch the Judy version again. I don't know how well the story actually transposes to an age where we think quite differently about relationships, substance abuse, and stardom. And opportunities are missed to examine all of that. Good lead performances, but not really that much of a script. Filmmaking is pedestrian. Hated the songs, but they're just not my style. There's something hilarious about Jackson scolding Ally for selling out and losin
