My husband and I got a chance to see Abby's last show in "Beautiful" yesterday and she is just as mesmerizing as when she started. After a little break, let's hope she gets another big break on Broadway.
And Evan Todd, continues to surprise me. He's been playing Gerry Goffin since 3/17 and his performance only gets better! He's a real triple treat, (Spring Awakening) and if you haven't seen "4th Man Out" you should check out that film. S
I agree with ACL, the tributes did have their better and "best" moments. Glass had a great moment to tell his story. Adam Lambert and Cyndi truly killed with wonderful and funny performances. Kristin, as much as I love her, still makes totally odd choices. (Hamilton anyone ?) My friend John, that worked it, said CBS edited 3 + hours of filming down to less than 2 hours, almost every act got edited down...(that's sad)...Does anyone know if they archive t
Hey there DRS, the simplest thing to ask is "Do I like Cher enough to go see this show?" I've gone twice and while it's not "Beautiful" or "Ain't Misbehavin'" it certainly can reside on Broadway. I myself thought "Jersey Boys" "Motown" the tour of "Ain't To Proud" were interminable messes, but had their moments. I love Motown music but come on! Donna Summer benefited from stellar vocals by LaCha
It's way to early for Cyndi or Kristin. What about Angela Lansbury, Diana Rigg or Maggie Smith. Lansbury has won Oliviers and BAFTAs..Rigg and Smith are theater and television royalty.
As for this years' show, our hair guy, John, was one of "more than the usual number" of wig/hair/make-up people this year. He said the show has some phenomenal moments. The "Schuyler Sisters" are absolutely tremendous; it is possible to blow the roof off the Opera House!!
Thanks all and thanks Luscious for that wildly funny YouTube of Laverne singing "The Lady Is A Tramp" She sachets down that runway like she has a giant turd in her spandex pantsuit! That would have been really cute in the show.
Thanks for the info on the Laverne character. I guess I should have been a little more specific in my question relating to her...
Did SJB get to do a song while wearing that hilarious costume? Or was that something cut from the show and they just gave the "costume" a "walk-on"?? It just seems like a lot of work for a 10 second cameo.. Did anything change from Chicago to Broadway?
I don't remember if it was mentioned, but Georgia Holt was actually IN an episode of I Love Lucy playing a Jacques Marcel fashion model in a fashion show. I also think I heard that Cher said her mother played an extra in crowd scenes, etc on several Lucy episodes. She must have been very good with her impersonation skills, too.
We just saw the show on Saturday so I guess we've missed the Cher-y godmother tricycle bit, but....
Does anyone know ? during the fashion show, tv show Cher comes out in some kind of leopard skin print as a trashy lady (??) with hanging boobies and bobble earrings. It looked like a costume kind of like Carol Burnett would wear. Did she sing a song dressed like this? Was this bit cut too for time??
I still had a blast; we're going back New Year's week. I n
We saw this today and I was really underwhelmed at the (lack of) direction. The actors are all in top form. I have never seen Elaine May in person so that is a delight. The problems, imo, lie in the very uneven direction that somehow allowed the play to veer off into almost "vignettes" and not a fully developed and staged play.
I really wanted to like it a lot more, and I do think "The Waverly Gallery" got a few critical "passes" due to
We saw the show last night and we were blown away. A very "tongue-"way"-in-your-cheek" adaptation.
The bio dedication from Ric Elise brought me to tears. Everything else is really coming together, Stephanie J Block is a powerhouse! Teal and Micaela are right behind her! The three of those ladies just kill!
The fashion show, the sets, the set recreations of past times in their lives...very very good. And I know I would TURN BACK TIME to be with Jared S
Remember! Bandstand (with Corey Cott's hairy chest) is back in theaters tonight! My theaters is sold out again, same as in June...Do you hear that producers? Laura Osnes is terrific, only the great choreography could have been edited more appropriately..you know who tells me No? Nobody!!!
The notorious RBG was at Lisner last night for the US Premiere of Gounod's "Sapho". RBG is a well known opera maven and even 3 bruised/broken ribs could not keep her from being there and hearing this glorious "little known" opera. They sneaked her in during the pre-show lecture but when she came back in during intermission, she got the longest (7-8min) standing O and loudest applause of the evening. Gods and Goddesses please continue to watch over her!!
IMO, I think a big part of displaying racial and stereotypical bigotry is also, knowing what you're going into see just TO see that part of a show or movie. Also blackface, could and in some ways does, promote the fascination, power and talent that became jazz and the blues. There of course were spirituals, but that goes so far back into religious beliefs also.
Did I go to see Shuffle Along for blackface? Hell, no! Did I go to hear Blake and Sissel and see that fabulous once i
Thanks Whizzer for a very entertaining review! We have tix for the preview in 2 weeks and again, after it opens during Christmas Week! ....and I can't wait! (You had me at "fashion show" and "bazillion dollar costumes"...
I can even forgive the semi spoilers on the one liners but I CAN'T WAIT!!!
We saw SJB in Drood and also as Reno in Anything Goes; she really is so terrific! I hope she makes a bazillion dollars on this show!!

Hey 121 what I mean is that the audience looked like there were a lot of people that just know the movie; there was however many many male couples that knew more of the shows’ history. As for Megan And Josh, I have to disagree the negative Josh posts. Josh may not have the “total leading man” visuals but he is sounding very well and he’s very funny. I almost wish he had done the She Loves Me” last year. And Megan definitely was brave enough to take on the Ellen Greene excellence. She a
