Unexpected casting, but I'll take it! I'm so pleased to see the enthusiasm and support this production is getting from the theater community. Bringing what was such a strong show in LA to Broadway is going to touch so many people.

Also Russell Harvard, who was terrific in TRIBES.

"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

YES! Is there any way to attend the show and only watch the scenes that Patrick Page is in? As you can tell, SA's not my favorite by any means, but I like Page so much that I might be willing to sit through it for him.

I was already looking forward to this but Patrick Page's casting really upped my excitement. I'll watch that man in anything.

A little swash, a bit of buckle - you'll love it more than bread.

I had been hoping that Manheim would be a part of this!! It's not unexpected at all since she first made a living as a sign language interpreter.

 THANK YOU! I've been wracking my brain for weeks trying to remember who the actress was that had a career previously with ASL.

Are Manheim and Matlin sharing the role of the Adult Women? Did they have two actresses perform the role in California?

I remember reading in the other Spring Awakening thread that this production has two Adult women and two Adult men.

If this will be similar to the LA production, Manheim will play Wendla's mother and Marlee Matlin will play Melchior's mother. Patrick Page will play the teacher / Melchior's father, and Russell Harvard will play Moritz's father.


I'm excited for Russell Harvard.. he was an amazing villain as Mr. Wrench in Fargo (the TV show), and I'm sure he'll be great as Moritz's scary father.

I apologize if someone has mentioned it somewhere, but I couldn't find the answer using the search, but does anyone know what is next in the Brooks Atkinson Theatre, seeing as the press release says that there is no availability for an extension?

"American Psycho."

Their press releases say "a Shubert Theatre" to be named later...

I just can't wait to hear Patrick Page say "Melchior Gabor, did you write this?"...already fantasizing now.

So very excited about Patrick Page! He was the highlight of Hunchback for me -- I've been craving hearing his voice again!
