Wife's favorite actor going to be in the May 15 "Musical Masterworks" at Lincoln Center (The Music of Steven Schwartz). Anyone going? I wonder what he'll sing.... Haven't noticed Raul being in anything lately (I'm assuming due to his TV commitments)....
He's also doing this, but the only way to get tickets now is to get on the waitlist:http://www.playbill.com/article/keri-russell-will-lead-benefit-reading-of-wendy-wassersteins-an-american-daughter
Is it too much to ask for Raul to do the Off Center Assasins?
Am attempting to will this into being with force of positive thinking.
We have lost him to Network Television. He has drunk from the vine of NBC Money, and from that road ne'er a traveller returns. Adieu, sweet Raul. I shall watch SVU and pray for you.
Broadway hasn't been particularly kind to him; his longest running gig (opening a show) was that lukewarm Rocky Horror revival (and he left that early to start Taboo). Apart from that, the three new works he was in averaged little more than 100 performances each. His four revivals have fared little better. He has never opened a hit; his most secure gig was a replacement MC in Cabaret. TV is probably much sweeter to him (more money, more fame, fewer hours).
I'm sure he'll continue on Broadway when he can. Sutton Foster has been able to do both....
Not to mention that SVU is in danger this season for the first time in almost 20 years, so who knows, maybe his schedule will be free again soon.
I'm not sure if Leap of Faith was a great experience for him either
"I'm not sure if Leap of Faith was a great experience for him either"I know it was an awful experience for me, and I only saw half of it...
Leap of Faith and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang were forgettable.... However, Taboo and Company were excellent for him!
TV is definitely not fewer hours. SVU is probably not in danger of not getting renewed, but the writers strike, if it happens, could impact their schedule. They have already wrapped Season 18.For the rest: speculation is just the BEST, isn't it? The schedule for a show like Younger is less limiting than for a show like SVU -- and not to mention the few years where he was on SVU and Hannibal, which shot in different countries at the same time. But I'm pretty confident in my belief that he's not done with theater.
Oh me too!!! willing him back to ANYTHING on Broadway....I just love him! Saw both Taboo and Chitty, and Leap of Faith in LA. Some performances better than others - but I'm still and always will be a fan. :)
I'm planning on going to the gala on May 15 but galas are frustrating because they involve one, maybe two, songs and participation in some kind of a finale. And lots of blah, blah, blah. Still - better than nothing. Also burning a candle for ASSASSINS in July.
Is Assassins a real possibility? Isn't he kinda busy with TV right now?

"He did Cymbeline in Shakespeare in the Park two summers ago, and that was a lot more than a three-show concert performance.I wish he'd break the curse of SVU and reclaim his rightful place on stage. Aren't the residuals enough?
Who is he dating now?
ASSASSINS is only ten days in July so TV filming shouldn't prevent it from happening.
The last revival at Studio 54 really spoiled me almost for Assassins. But seeing Raul again (on stage) , are tickets on sale yet?[Will the show be updated to include ... ****p?]
I loved meeting Raul when we were taping the two performances of "Company" that were eventually released on DVD and Blu-ray. He couldn't have been nicer...
I don't begrudge him network TV money, but I keep hoping he'll be able to sock enough to come back to Broadway even if in a small production.
I think he would do Hedwig.
Please don't tease Jane. How wonderful would that be?
I thought his best performance was in Tick Tick Boom when he was an unknown. And he brought something new to Being Alive when he did Company.
