So, You Think You Can Dance (like this)? 2011/01/07
Posted: 1/9/2011
Alex - I saw the show and I cant agree more. Adam is very exciting and I cant wait to see what he does next. His dancers were extremely talented and polished with excellent stage presence. His work is technical physical and innovative all at the same time. My favorite of all was the anatomical approach to the floor work. Definitely try to catch any show he does.

ZENITH Screens At The Kraine Theater 2011/01/04

Guest - watched the trailers for this and there's nothing remotely steampunk about it. it's dystopian, sure, but that's about it. it could be much better compared to "escape from new york." ridiculous buzzword-exploitation.

Joanne Theodorou - I never understood why someone did not comment on the fact that Ramona Mallory, who beautifully played "Anne" in this production, is the daughter of Victoria Mallory, who was the original "Anne" in this marvelous show! No one saw a story or a great interview there? Anyhow, fabulous show with four great ladies, not to mention Alexander Hampson who was amazing! Thank you all for a wonderful year on Broadway!! Wish you would stay longer....

Tara - This sounds great, and I'm really looking forward to it. But: the fact they announced it on the day the ticket sales started proved to be a big problem for some people. I'd love to see it with some friends. Now, we're all coming from abroad, so when we heard the news yesterday it was not like we could just have booked our tickets immediately. Ok, most people couldn't cause it was almost impossible to get through to the box office. But for us the real problem is that London is not really a day trip distance away, so most have to check with their employers first to get time off. And now that's (mostly) settled it's more or less impossible to get really good tickets for a group of 5 people. Row N and back is the best we managed to find so far. We will go, definitely, but next time can we maybe have at least a few days advanced warning?

Mullally Turns Down Sondheim (BroadwayWorld.com)
Posted: 1/9/2011
glenwj - sorry but Megan Mullally is not good enuf for Follies/Sondheim . Understand me...she probably has the talent and discipline to do it, but from all reports to untried diva-esque. If you are reading this Miss Meghan, to do this role is like winning an Oscar, in my opinion of course

GLEE, Lynch, Harris, et al. Win 2011 People's Choice Awards! 2011/01/06 Page 2
Posted: 1/9/2011
Ray Workman - THE CHOICES FOR THE PEOPLES CHOICE AWARDS ARE A JOKE. WHO ARE THE PEOPLE THAT VOTED? EVERY 10 YEAR OLD IN THE USA? AND THEY VOTED THOUSANDS OF TIMES FOR THE SAME IDIOTS. THESE PEOPLES CHOICE AWARDS ARE AS WORTHLESS AS THE PEOPLE WHO VOTED FOR THEM.

PapaJohn - Look around, Barbra is the ONLY mega-talent out there to do the character justice AND to draw people in to see a big musical. Who else would you suggest do this? My only concern is her voice, which is NOT what it once was. Rose was always played by a "belter" ... Barbra certainly used to be, but I think those days are gone unless she is willing to put some effort into it and make it as strong as can be. I'm not saying that her voice is shot necessarily, but it sure doesn't give me chills like it used to.

Saints Play Seahawks on NBC's SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL, 1/8 2011/01/03
Posted: 1/8/2011
GE Smith - If I had a dollar for every time Mike Mayock said "I", "Me", "My", "In my opinion" and "when I played", NBC would be into me for seamingly several thousand dollars. Extremely annoying habit from an otherwise top notch color man. Come on, man!!

Pete Ciarrochi - I tried to enjoy the free preview by tuning into Showtime channel. Nothing. I contacted Comcast and was told it was On Demand only. I tried to watch Dexter. $4 not free. Contacted Comcast. Was told that Showtime had to "be added a la carte to your account." Me: So I need to subscribe to get it for free. Comcast: Yes, that is correct. Thanks for nothing Comcast.

Posted: 1/8/2011
Johnaton Stone - Miss Minnellis' performance in Australia recently,especially on Australian Idol,was an embarrassement not only to herself but to those unfortunate to watch----a graceful exit Stage Left should have been made a long time ago so as not to destroy the memory of the Legend.

VP's BLOG: Television Sucks for Actors 2010/07/19
Posted: 1/8/2011
Laurence - I find this Blog to be hypocritical of itself. Giving an "artist" at specific to do list to "live you life" is BS. How can one be an artist if they are doing something someone else told them to do? An artist is someone who has their "own" view/opinion/outlook on life and has the need to share it with anyone who cares to devote attention to the artist. It's not tv, iphones, ipad, or xbox that is destroying and artist frame of mind. It's money. The more money matters to man, the less artists we will see in the world.

Gema Castaño llevará su 'Gema Latina' al Teatro Arenal 2011/01/07
Posted: 1/8/2011
yoestuvealli - Yo estuve allí y, desgraciadamente, esto es lo que me pareció: Como siempre una buena voz, pero pocas canciones, enlazadas con un texto bastante pobre y vulgar (con comentarios ofensivos) que la artista tenía que consultar en varias ocasiones porque se perdía, cuando al público no le agradaba un comentario (sobretodo en un momento de críticas carentes de sentido a otros artistas del panorama nacional) ella se quitaba la culpa de lo dicho justificando que es lo que ponía en el guión, demasiadas alusiones a amigos situados en el público y totalmente ajenos a otras personas que habíamos pagado nuestra entrada... bastante desastroso, tal vez poco ensayado.

BroadwayGirlNYC: The Quiet Season - Winter on Broadway 2011/01/06
Posted: 1/8/2011
Joanne Theodorou - I hope you will continue your good work...you are a happy medium, not a dour, gossipy critic....between Broadway and its audience and we need a real person (with financial limitations like the rest of us!! )reporting for us. I think stage performers understand the symbiotic relationship between audience and performer i.e. we both need each other, but sometimes that tends to get lost. You manage to remind us all . So keep up your optimism and let us hear from you....!
