It's cute and notable regardless of gender. Idina and Taye were cute and notable when they sang opposite each other in Wicked too. Any time it's a real couple, that gives it a little something extra I think.
But it's also got a deeper resonance to those of us who usually do not see ourselves in these stories. For all the stereotypes of queer people on broadway, the representation IN musicals is still... not great outside a couple of heavily touted examples. Th
All depends on the competition. There are many shows I can think of that were very high quality shows but lost to other high quality shows, and many where I go "Wow what happened that year" because the competition was so thin.
The general consensus was that the book needed work, some of the songs did not work (but that's unlikely to change) but the overall effect was pretty fantastic, particularly sets/costumes. Lots of spectacle. Some years that's enough, other years
Sincerely Werk! said: "Laurens/Phillip is one of those roles that really depends on personal taste to determine if you enjoyed the performance. Ruben's Laurens is a lot less comedic than Fisher's or Medina's, but he is more ambitious and determined, which makes his death more heartbreaking.
Chapelle, while tall, can play the little kid of the show really well, it especially works when he's 19. He still gives off an immature vibe, but his height settles in w
I think the only way to make it work would be to cut out a lot of the gods' stuff. The show would look great in realism/semi realism, but the gods sitting around and chatting I think would not translate well to the screen. But I could see a real lush set, a bunch of the music and accompaniment rather than a proper song (Think Spirit, which does that so well, or We Know The Way from Moana) and the gods as more forces of nature than people.
I always figured it was pretty much between the actor, their doctor, and those running the show. A director can say "Go on vocal rest" but they don't control an actor outside of the show. Likewise, an actor can say "I need vocal rest" but a producer can still send them on the talkshow circuit.
I have a demanding job, and people go on 'stress leave' often. It's basically the emotional version of vocal rest, and it's determined in conversations wit
I've not sat in the Kerr yet but having seen Hadestown, the only thing I'd recommend is sitting a little ways back. I was five rows from the stage at the national and you lose the effect of some of the bigger numbers. Where in the theatre doesn't matter too much, I have a slight preference towards the left. They play to all sides pretty equally but the left gets some great moments.
And apparently the code NYTW gives you $40 off for Hadestown

Moving away from acting awards for a sec (where I think Hadestown will win best featured actor/actress and get a nom for best actress, as well as the big prize of best musical)
Hadestown should win best lighting design and direction, both were really stunning and flashy enough to be noticed. I think score and orchestrations are also likely.
Choreo and costumes seem unlikely. Book will depend on changes
Hadestown or Beetlejuice? Jan 29

Hadestown is definitely my new favourite, and will always have my vote. It has generally more promising reviews than beetlejuice though the consensus seems to be that beetlejuice is promising.
I would research both shows and pick the one that appeals to you more.
I didn't think Eva would get a nomination, as the role of Eurydice is fairly small for a lead role, but having now seen her in the production I think she will. She brings a LOT to the role, and considering her recent nom for Miss Saigon as well I think she'll get a nomination this year.
Unless Hadestown sweeps, I don't think she'll win though.
I think it would be a huge mistake to move Amber and Patrick up to leading. The roles just aren't enough for leading,

JSquared2 said: "Umm, they’re now in their fifties, dude "
yeah that was one of the issues with the movie. The cast of rent is a lot more sympathetic when they're young and figuring life out and making mistakes and being selfish and stupid as many young people are. It loses something if they're in their 40s

No breath control for Mimi though (forgive me I don't know the actress). Should have taken the short break before her part of the song to catch her breath after Out Tonight (which was pretty darn good)
