| What Is Left For Bernadette? Feb 25
2020, 10:36:03 AM|
Now, after her triumphant revival of Hello Dolly, what remains available for the wonderful Bernadette Peters to do? Unless someone writes a new musical that has a matrure woman in the cast she can follow the Angela Landsbury route by doing Mrs.Lovett in Sweeney Todd, perhaps a revival of Dear World, play Granny in Pippin, Madame Hortance in Zorba, lastly Desiree's mother in Little Night Music. Her Ethel Merman repertoire has dried up and too old fo

A black Fatty Arbuckle doesn't matter. It is NOT the character of the real person Roscoe Arbuckle but the character he played, "Fatty" and with that is opened to any to the creators of what they want. The actpr who played him did a splendid job,

Just when we are now almost sick of Hello Dolly and could wait anoither ten years for the next revival of it, I'd think it would be great if Queen Latifa play Dolly in the same way Pear Bailey did.

Are you related or descended to a famous Broadway legend? Was Alfred Drake your great uncle or Ethel Merman your grandmother? Tells us and if you too are foilowing the family tradition of being in show biz.

If they do a movie version I'd like to see Hugh Jackman play the male lead.

First, I want to thank Renee for giving such an honest and heartfelt portrayal of Judy. However I found it sad and very depressing. Bring your tissues.
| Julius LaRosa Musical Oct 9

Back in the early 50's a radio and television host ruled the air waves. His name was Arthur Godfrey. He would host a variety show that featured new talent. One singer was a handsome Italian tenor called Julius LaRosa who Godfrey favored until professional jealousy soured the relationship. Godfrey fired him live right on the air. I think this would make a great musical perhaps featuring Jose Llana or Matt Cavenaugh as tenor LaRosa and Alec Baldwin as Godfrey. A good title for it would b
| Nancy Walker musical from 1985 Sep 9

A Nancy Walker musical would be great if done in the Funny Girl fashion. Homely, unappreciated Jewish girl from Brooklyn gets to play the Big Time on Broadway, it should be a natural, a cinch. Why not?

The best candidate to play the character Ilya would be Jennifer Lopez or Gloria Estefan.

I heard there may be a limited run of an Ilya Darling revival. Who do you think could pull it off as the late sultry Melina Mercouri type for this musical of Never On Sunday?

I throw out this idea to you young composers out there. Could you make a musical out of the old play Arsenic and Old Lace? You can have Bette Midler and Bernadette Peters as the old aunts and Nathan Lane as their brother Teddy. I think it would be a hit.

Did you have the fortune to play on stage with the great Mary Martin? Where you a child or young chorus singer or dancer in one of her shows? Could you tell us a story about it? Thanks.

If the boys are young how about "I Won't Grow Up" from Peter Pan?
| I'd Rather Be Right Revival? Aug 2
2019, 09:05:34 PM|
Why hasn't there been a revival of that old Rogers and Hart show "I;d Rather Be Right"? Why not have Joel Grey play the George M Cohan part as well. He did do George M years ago. He's just the right age now for this show. Cagney did a scene from it in Yankee Doodle Dandy film.
