Xnight - I would disagree Howie. Maldondo has brought Latin theather to heights (no pun intended) that it's never been to. Celia was a hit. Lavoe another hit. We were represented on satge and screen and he didn't have to Americanize the story or talent as" in the heights' might have (but very appreciative of in the heights) We need to support Latin theater or else we run the risk of never being represented on the stage. I respect your opinion howie, However your statements seem more personal in nature. The play isn't even showing yet and you're "hating" Let's be a little more objective, and wait till the play is out before making assesments.

Linda, cannot be stereotyped, she has the ability to cross all types of music genres with ease, beauty and grace. I'm eagerly awaiting this release just as I have all the others!

BUT as much as I didn't want to admit it that show was amazing!! It was hilarious!! And somehow relatable to anyone. I don't know how they were able to make it good for people of all ages, races, sex, but they really really did!! It was incredible. I actually like theatre now because of this show.

BWW Jr: AN AFFORDABLE OPTION FOR THEATRE-GOING PARENTS 2011/01/24
Posted: 1/27/2011
BroadwayWorld - From the Author: "While I haven't spoken to anyone at Playwrights about this, my understanding is that in order for a facility or business to change diapers they need a day care license which is costly and timely to acquire. As I understand it, this is why some preschools change diapers and some require that your child be potty trained as a qualification for admission. Again, I am just assuming here and I am not a day care provider or school teacher, but that's what I've always been told is the law in New York City. Perhaps if this program proves to be a lucrative endeavor for Playwrights Horizons, they will expand it to include more performances and a wider age span of children. For now, I applaud their innovation and I appreciate their efforts to make life a little easier for parents in the city. I am the parent of a two year old who is still in diapers, so I can't personally take advantage of this service, but I'm excited to see a theatre company taking steps towards making theatre more accessible to families and the promise it shows for the future."

PHANTOM OF THE OPERA to Have Best Weekly Gross in 23 Year History 2011/01/03
Posted: 1/27/2011
Terri L - The Phantom of the Opera is the grandest of shows and deserves all the accolades. I would just like to mention that it was Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman that originated the Phantom and Christine on stage and on the album. I think it is safe to say that Michael's artistry in developing the depth of characterization and his outstanding musical talent was and still is (due to the original cast recording) the major draw of the show. Granted Michael Crawford hasn't performed the Phantom since 1991 except in concert, but the album has made the widest swathe and continues to do so. Congratulations to all the current and past performers, stagehands and production staff and my highest regards to Michael Crawford, the truest Phantom.
