ALL ABOUT ME's Dame Edna to Co-Host 'The View,' 3/25 2010/03/25

Sheryl Kaller To Direct Reading Of THE LAST SMOKER IN AMERICA 5/21 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/13/2010
Metacritic - I'm wondering why anyone hasn't pointed out that this is one of the worst scripts on the planet. Having seen the NYMF production (twice, because I simply couldn't believe it could be that bad), I am dumbfounded at the connection between the otherwise talented Kaller and the clearly astute Sandberg being persistently associated with this production. Abandon every last hope, all ye who enter here. In yet another case of clever translation, both productions that I attended were clearly NOT sold out (and that's presuming the lowest possible number of comp tickets to give the impression thus) and there were many empty seats. Notable to many might be the fact that this production is having its "world premiere" in Ohio. Good luck. Looks like there's now competition to see what's meant by the term "mistake-by-the-Lake"...

'IDOL' WATCH: Down to 3 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/13/2010
Suz - Casey James-the weak link? You cannot be serious? Of the final 4, only Crystal and Casey have consistently offered perfect vocals (aside from James' problems with Sinatra week which came as a result of bad acoustics as defended by Harry Connick Jr.), and Casey is an amazing musician-his guitar skills are second to none! Did you not watch him carry the duet? I understand American Idol is about pop stars and Crystal and Casey will never fit that cookie-cutter mold. But with Casey has to offer is far better than Lee or Michael or many of the other contestants...he's an amazing blues/rocker who plays a mean guitar. And he's a gentleman...despite ridicule, childish antics and completely useless critiques, he's put himself out there, week after week, and survived this far. He's never responded negatively to any comments hurled his way, and is very self-deprecating. This isn't just about pop music. This is about the whole package, and Casey James is the whole package! He is a star already, and I have no doubt, long after Lee or Michael have disappeared off of the radar, Casey James will be making music which millions of people will want to buy!

Jay in MN - Saw the show last month for the first time. It was AMAZING. I've been a fan of Beatles music for a long time and had seen one other Cirque show (Mystere), but was impressed with how the music was featured first and foremost--the show was built around it. Well done!

Posted: 5/13/2010
Denny Crane - Totally wrong venue and ill-advised venture, the second half being the musicalisation of the vanity publishing efforts of Miss Andrews and her daughter entitled Simeon's Gift. Miss Andrews deserved better. Not for the first time in her career her management and advisors let her down - suprisingly her husband wasn't involved in the project as that is usually the curse on anything she does. One comment here said, "Edelweiss was a rich reward..." She sang 30 seconds of a 3 minute song! The only person getting rich was Miss Andrews pocketing a reported £250.000 fee.

By working together we can help these animals find adoptive homes where they are loved and cared for. Paws and Claws Humane Society located in Rochester, MN, is working hard to educate the public about the problem of pet overpopulation and the need to spay and neuter companion animals. Our mission is to provide humane protection and shelter for abandoned or lost animals with the goal of securing adoptive homes for each animal in our care.

West End's CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL Cancelled After Rights Pulled 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/13/2010
treyfan - from whatsonstage.com The show, adapted from the cult 1996 film bySouth Park creator Trey Parker, was first seen Off-Broadway in 2001 and had a run at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe care of the Rival Theatre Company production, the company behind the London transfer. In a lengthy statement, Rival Theatre Company co-founder Frazer Brown said: "I am deeply saddened to announce the cancellation of Trey Parker’s Cannibal! The Musical at the Leicester Square Theatre. The rights Holder Jason McHugh unexpectedly and suddenly pulled his permission for rights usage. The decision is shrouded in mystery as Mr Mchugh's responses have become increasingly vague the past few weeks. “Mr McHugh recently contacted me to inform me that there was a cash sum on offer by Scott Rudin, Trey Parker and Matt Stone to cancel our proposed London production and postpone it for a year, in hopes of drawing attention to their upcoming Book of Mormon production on Broadway next year. Mr Mchugh until this point had been enthusiastic about our production, director and casting. This ‘blackout’ offer didn’t materialise. I was then abruptly instructed to limit my number of performances to 35 and cancel all further plans for the production including a proposed transfer and tour. “When I questioned the reason behind this limitation I was told the rights are now no longer available. Period. Mr McHugh cited that he has decided to develop the piece with the producers of Evil Dead the Musical, sometime next year, he also cited unpaid royalties as a factor. No royalty sum had been agreed by Mr Mchugh as we were still discussing these aspects of the production. “This reprehensible and immoral behaviour on the part of Mr McHugh has left me frustrated and angry, having worked towards this production for over three years now investing large sums of money and time, to see it fail at this point is deeply upsetting. I am currently seeking legal council regarding reparations and damages. "I can only apologise to those that have already bought tickets for the show, and to the fans of both Trey Parker and South Park that were looking forward to seeing the show. Mr McHugh has not only let you all down but also our cast, Director, Marketing companies and countless other associated professionals. Please contact your ticket vendor regarding refunds."

Aimée - @darlena: I think you mean TOM Curry is the Aussie actor/comedian! (must admit I've never heard of him however). Looking forward to seeing this, will be good to see Tim Curry playing a serious role as they seem so few and far between. He's a fine classical actor and highly underated as such...I hope his advancing years will see him choose more roles like this and perhaps more stage work too.

BroadwayWorld.com Announces Broadway Critics Report Card 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/13/2010
Candice - critics' opinions are hardly ever accurate. why dignify them with a report card? seems to me you should let the users grade the shows. to me, that would be far more indicative of which shows are worth seeing. For example, Wicked only earned about a 5, yet is still grossing over a million each week six years later. obviously the critics were blind to what has people constantly going to (and back) to that show. additionally, next to normal only got a 7, I have not heard of one person who didn't like that show (though I am sure they are out there) plus it won a Pulitzer! I could go on, but I'm not going to go through show by show. plus I'm sure people will already give me heat for using Wicked as an example. I just don't understand why it's monumental success has caused people to somehow resent it and its fans like myself. I love the theatre, my interests are nowhere near limited to just Wicked, or to just the more popular mainstream musicals for that matter. Plus no one should complain that Wicked is getting people into the theatre! :) the more the merrier. haha sorry, random tangent.

Andrew Lloyd Webber Faces £20,000 Fine for Painting Adelphi Theatre 2010/04/16
Posted: 5/12/2010
Theatre Hound - I think it has legs. Word of mouth is putting the the "bums in the seats." It's much better than the critics have admitted. I think some make a tidy living eviscerating ALW shows. I went out of curiosity and expecting to hate it because I so love Phantom. (For any of you Phans out there, I hated what they did to POTO in the movie.) But with LND I was dead wrong. I loved it! IHO it is the best music ALW has written since Phantom. The lyrics by Glenn Slater are intelligent and memorable. The two songs most may have heard prior to seeing it, "Til I hear You Sing Again" and "Love Never Dies" are again IHO not the best in the show. I can name three others I like as well or better. "Once Upon Another Time," "Beneath a Moonless Sky", and the "The Beauty Underneath" and haunting recurring theme "Beautiful" follows you home and plays over and over in your head. I was in London 10 days and saw it twice.

james render - my grandmother and her sister spoke with great fondness of doris and pearl, with whom they worked in the follies just after the first world war, also anna held and fanny brice. our family lost the letters my grandmother had from fanny over the years, but still have the tin star doris gave me in the early 50's when doris came into watertown, ny, to see my grandmother and her sister, after my grandmother's oldest son died. i remember being introduced in woolworths dept. store where my grandmother was working. both doris and my grandmother were the same height, and doris said we shared the same birthday. grandma said i liked dancing to the radio, and doris did a few steps. i followed her moves. she went through a few more there in the store aisle. i did my best to follow her lead, but slipped on the smooth floor, bumping my head on a counter. doris picked me up and said i could be her star on the stage, pinning that ten cent sherrifs badge on my shirt. it made my day and i still remember her from that time. seeing doris made my grandmother smile during a terrible time for our family. i will never forget her thoughtfulness, or what her friendship meant to our family. today i work in musical theater. i owe the influence of my grandmother, her sister, and doris for bringing inspiration into my childhood

@DeepSpaceMKTG - I couldn't agree more - it's a timeless show and one that I hope will run and run and run ... and I've seen it 5 times already!

TheFairOne - She looks very good and healthy. Krissi looks so proud of her momma. She's been with her supporting her front stage at EVERY show. Those two are soo close. Her Italian shows were very good. I just wish the media would report her good concerts and good song renditions instead of focusing on that one bridge in IWALY- that is so not fair.

Serena - I was just rereading "Century Girl" last week, and was so happy Doris was still with us. She was an institution, but I like to think she will never really die.......she will live on in dances, high kicks, and footlights forever.

BWW Interviews: Ann Street-Kavanaugh, A Life in the Theatre 2010/05/09
Posted: 5/12/2010
Janice Magliacane - I'm proud to say Ann is one of my best friends and she is definitely deserving of this well-earned praise and then some. She has an amazing voice but her stage presence is a genuine reflection of the out-going, fun and sincere person Ann is every day and that translates into "star quality'" that captivates audiences and friends alike. I have always been amazed by Ann's versatility, energy and good heart. Ann is a truly gifted artist, but just as important, she is truly a nice person. I wish her, "The best is yet to be."!

Michael - An adaptation of he Christopher Marlowe play, edWARd 2, is also happening during this week. This is an outrageous update from across the pond (developed and acted by students from Long Island, NY's Adelphi University) that includes the gratuitous use of puppets. Critics have said that "the direction was brilliant" and "'realism I don't want - I want magic!' edWARd 2 provided just that - magic." It is incredible fun and is a can't miss! Keep eyes open, I'll post the date and venue here in a few hours.

Oscar Winning 'Music By Prudence' Premieres on HBO2, 5/12 2010/05/10
Posted: 5/12/2010
Kim Chin - This is a classic illustration of life well appreciated. Regardless of Prudence's struggles, challenges and difficulties, she still rises and goes beyond, and what a pleasant voice to listen to. I applaud her for her bravery and remarkable talent in the Liyana band. Her intriguing and uplifting spirit, which is an encouragement for others who are not even disabled, however some sit around and do nothing. Congratulations to all who made this possible, especially Mr. Ross Williams on your award and other achievements. All the best to you all for future endeavors and the "Liyana Band" for all your strength and bravery to continue. Peace to you all. I look forward to enjoying your film.

I've been going there since I was a kid, born and raised in Pittsburgh and this is the first show perfect for the whole family. Thank you to the director and the talented cast!

Steve Thompson - I was given the great honor of seeing Ms. Travis three times at the Easter Bonnet Contest. She was truly a "Star" in the old fashion sense of the word. Broadway will glow a little less bright with her passing but she will be remembered by us all for her grace, charm and her help in raising money for such a great cause as Broadway Cares. Although I never met her in person, I felt like I knew her and I will morn her passing.
