I wouldn't be surprised if the "Come From Away" performance was "Me and the Sky". It's really the only solo number of the show, and they wouldn't have to have Chad Kimball or any of the men.

The Glinda reunion was a lot of fun...I was most interested in Laura Bell Bundy talking about her time in the show. I don't think she really has spoken about it. She does the best Kristin Chenoweth impression. Nice to hear her.

I assume like others above me that a "reimagining" means that they are going to go in and "fix" the issues that would no longer be "accepted" by today's audience.
This leads me to think about other shows in the same boat (pun not intended). I know that Encores was working on the "retooled" Throughly Modern Millie. I can only assume that if we ever get a major revival of Mame, Ito will be changed. I mean, maybe even just cut the accent.

The #MeToo movement is something incredibly important in moving our world forward, however, with the current state of affairs in the world, do you think it will create the "spark" that it would have during the "height" of it all?

I just don't know how something like this can be enforced. To quote Elle Woods, "Why now? Why this sperm?" I understand the drastic consequences of spreading, etc. but how different is this than saying everyone needs to prove they have a flu shot, or a vaccination for the mumps; chicken pox, etc.

NBC: Here’s “The Grinch” with Broadway people! Merry Christmas!
Theater Fans: Ugh he’s miscast, the show is awful, how are they getting away with this?!?!"
Jordan, did you think we would react any differently? Ahahaha.
Anyway, I am excited to get some new programming on, and will be tuning in. "So what? Who cares?!"

To be honest, I don't think it will do anything directly for theatre. I think it will all be indirect, that the community will reap the benefits of...not that there's anything wrong with that.

One that springs to mind that was also a surprise to Cole Porter:

I prefer musicals over plays so it explains all of these. However, I will say that I chose the following because the main reason to see these were of the casting, and see these incredible performers live in person.
Deuce (Angela Lansbury and Marian Seldes-2007)
The Best Man (James Earl Jones and Angela Lansbury-2012)
Death of a Salesman (Phillip Seymour Hoffman-2012)
Inherit the Wind (Christopher Plummer and Brian Dennehy-2007)

Grey Gardens: looking back, I am so happy I saw Christine Ebersole give this incredible performance.
The Play That Goes Wrong: it was part of my subscription plan, and was not excited to see it. But, laughed and throughly enjoyed myself.
The Band's Visit: didn't believe all the hype around it when it opened on Broadway. Was a bit turned off by all the Tony Awards it won. Plot didn't excite me, but again, came as part of my subscription and was blown a

She lead quite the life...although, when I think of her, the first thing that comes to mind is the story Elaine Stritch told about the production of 'The Women" that co starred: Elaine, Marge Champion, and Gloria Swanson.

I was in London in 2007 and got surprise tickets to the revival of Fiddler on the Roof that Goodman was starting in...I had heard about the Producers incident, and was wondering about his performance...he was out the night I saw the show, and his understudy Max Zimmerman who was incredible.
| Broadway Profiles, TV show with Tamsen Fadal Oct 21
2020, 09:16:23 AM|
I watch it when I remember. Nothing groundbreaking, or anything exciting but, a fun half hour show that I don't mind watching. The only part I don't like is the Broadway.com news breaks. As you pointed out, being a monthly show, the "news" gets to be stale if you are looking at the news as often as I do, or I'm sure many others on this board.
Also, there is something about Tamsen Fadal that I like. Can't put my finger on it. Maybe its that she seems exci

I've never understood shows premiering in foreign-language productions. If it's presumably an out-of-town tryout, why would you workshop the show in a language you don't speak?"

| Studio Recordings vs. Live Recordings Oct 9
2020, 03:53:28 PM|
I prefer studio recordings over the live ones. To be honest, the only live albums I really care for are ones that either include all the scenes or dialogue, or there is something unique about the casting...(the Dreamgirls concert checks off both those boxes for me).
