Lindsay - Could you give a better definition between "resident-Equity" and "resident-non equity"? It is a little confusing- does that refer to the theater producing the show? (i.e. if they operate on a full equity contract they are "resident-Equity" and if they just use Guest Artist etc. they are "non-equity") Thanks for the clarification!

Ine Ingenluyff - I am trying to buy tickets online. Have however no luck at all and like to get some response on the previous e-mail as well as my husband's phone messages. My husband is handicap, but is not in a wheelchair, he is using a walker.I have no idea if he is entitled to sit in the handicap section. It is very important that he can sit on the end of a row either way. We need three senior tickets for Thursday evening Dec. the 2nd. Would appreciate your advise with greetings Ine Ingenluyff (ineingen@yahoo.com).

BWW Interviews: BILLY's Emily Skinner 2010/11/08
Posted: 11/22/2010
Mary A. Ruschin - I had the great opportunity to see "Billy" in October; Joseph Harrington played "Billy" and I could NOT believe his talent and constant energy displayed on stage. How this young man could survive being on stage at the opening curtain, straight through to the finale, dancing, acting, singing, speaking constantly, is quite an accomplishment. Joseph Harrington may out-grow his role of "Billy", however, he will be a force on Broadway for many, many years to come. Kudos to you and "Billy", Joseph!!!! Mary A. Ruschin :)

Nick - These are awards are a joke. LND is overrepresented in too many categories - why? How can the best director and the best choreographer win an award when they have in fact left the show in a bitter dispute? This is ridiculous. I look forward to hearing their acceptance speeches if there are any, which I doubt.

Gavin - No doubt the fans of Love Never Dies used multiple e-mail addresses to make sure it won. And since when is a musical that's never closed classed as a revival? You can't have a revival of a show currently running.

Glenn - If this is to become a reality then I would hope Jackie Evancho would be contacted for a tryout . She would be perfect with her looks, charm, smile and the most incredible voice (singing voice) I have ever heard...and she is only 10. Those familiar with Jackie Evancho most certainly agree. Can she act? I don't doubt it because she is an amazing, phenomenal little child.

Legend Leslie Uggams Talks Uptown Downtown and Her Career 2010/11/18
Posted: 11/21/2010
Laura Jones - Whatever happened to grace among fellow actors? I saw the show twice. I thought Miss Crawford was amazing and the standout of the show. Miss Uggams did a solid job and grew during the run, but for my money, Miss Crawford put my "butt" in the seat and then out of it for the curtain call. Sounds like sour grapes to me. Just my opinion. It's like when I went to the Improv one night aned Jay Mohr went up. He had a bad night, a bad night. Which many do. But the unknowing audience was falsely impressed because it was "Jay Mohr." I would think it would be easier to replace Ms. Uggams and get a better draw there. She's done 8 shows in 40 years on B-way. Hardly a Bernadette Peters. Hardly a Patti Lupone. Legend? Eh, seems like a stretch. Us younger people don't even know who she is.

Mike George - I thought Nikki Crawford did an amazing job of capturing the essence of Lena. I think a lot of people forget that stars, including Lena, start somewhere. A big name might "put butts in the seats" for a while, but talent such as Nikki's will keep them there and bring them back for more. Nikki has a stage presence to her and it was easy for me to tell that she has a passion for her craft. Nikki is honoring the talent of Lena, and Lena would be proud. Broadway is about bringing stars to the stage and Nikki is one of them.

Judy Kaye Rings Some Bells 2010/11/21
Posted: 11/21/2010
Michael - I agree. When will a show be written for the talented, versatile, delightful ... and reliable JUDY KAYE? I repeatedly play her few solo recordings. Whenever I see her onstage, I'm astonished by her star quality. The time for a JUDY KAYE vehicle is long overdue; and by the way, her credits (Broadway, off-Broadway, Regional, and Road - not to mention TV commercials) all prove she has "paid her dues." Apparently you and I will have to fight over who will be first in line to buy a ticket to Ms. Kaye's next appearance - hopefully a big Broadway musical designed just for this deserving diva!

Abbey Theatre to Bring Rickman in JOHN GABRIEL BORKMAN to NYC in '11 2010/07/02
Posted: 11/21/2010
Tonja - Seems you didn't understand this story?! Borkman just had to be like this, it belongs to his character! Mr Rickman wasn't bored - he played a man who has lost all important things in life. Freedom, love, friendship, power, confidence, money. He has to be looking depressed and dissapointed by being locked up for totally 8 years, waiting for someone who might help him! I would like to see your behaviour in this case! But live and let live... My personal opinion after watching this performance: It was a really brillant staging from all of them, first to mention Alan Rickman! A 'must see' for real fans of this great actor!

Judy Kaye Rings Some Bells 2010/11/21
Posted: 11/21/2010
Bruce Winston - Athough Judy Kaye undoubtedly makes a wonderful Sue Summers in the Encore production of "Bells Are Ringing," I would have gladly seen the production if she had been rightfully cast in the leading role of Ella Peterson. Having read all the reviews of Kelli O'Hara's performance, it is apparent that she doesn't completely have the chops to bring off the comedic aspects of this leading role, whereas Judy Kaye is in my opinion is Broadway's greatest musical comedy actress of our time. She should be starring in every show she does instead of graciously accepting the supporting character roles.

Legend Leslie Uggams Talks Uptown Downtown and Her Career 2010/11/18
Posted: 11/21/2010
C. Rousseau Gilliard - With ALL due respect to Miss Uggams, who is a formidable and legendary talent in her own right, do these PROMOTERS have any idea of the opportunity they have by bringing this show AS IS to BROADWAY?? They don't need a known 'star' to put butts in the seats. LENA HORNE IS the STAR.....and NIKKI CRAWFORD gets OUT of the WAY to bring LENA to life as WE REMEMBER her!!! WHO, on the scene, can 'put butts' in the seats AND 'channel' LENA other than NIKKI CRAWFORD? That show was phenomenal as is. Producers should re think this idea, if it's true. Horne is an iconoclast. SHE is the draw.....and the show needs an actor who personifies Lena....not an actor who brings 'cume', as it were.......just a thought,

Legend Leslie Uggams Talks Uptown Downtown and Her Career 2010/11/18
Posted: 11/21/2010
dnltblog - I think Uggams is being quite generous toward Nikki Crawford. I saw Crawford in Stormy Weather and I thought she was fine in the role but she's not a showstopper. As well, she has no name recognition. The show itself is pretty lightweight and its primary appeal is the music. The reviews will be savage so it would help enormously to have a marquee talent starring as the Young Lena. Otherwise the show will close in a month.
