Webber-Produced BOMBAY DREAMS Gets Silver Screen Treatment 2010/05/14
Posted: 5/15/2010
CARLOTTA ROJAS - I love Bombay Dreams, I saw it in London and it was a huge success there. Great music by the most greatest composer of all our times: A R Rahman, the Asian Mozart. Unfortunately, it was a quick flop in Broadway because New Yorkers are so ignorant that their brains can only understand things like: "Oh, Elphie, I am blond!"

BroadwayWorld.com Announces Broadway Critics Report Card 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/15/2010
Zanna - Oy vey. I don't know where to begin. Haven't seen all the shows, and some years ago, but 9.50 for Chicago? Is that a typo? Switch Chicago's score w/Jersey Boys and that might be right. At a glance, the only one that looks correct is South Pacific. Definitely a 9 and go see it again before it ends.

Bill - Hearing of her passing has floored me. She lived two houses down from me, and I didn't even know she was a famous performing star in Broadway back in the twenties. Its sad to not see her around anymore and I'll miss not seeing her take her daily walks to the lake on nice days. I'll always be thinking about her and she will be deeply missed.

steve - Since Broadway World actually gives scores from both critics and audiences, why aren't both posted upfront right next to each other? I think it's interesting that many of the shows with the lowest critic scores have the highest audience scores? Isn't that the beauty of online chat? We get to hear from both sides.

Julie Andrews: Not Resurrecting Singing Career with O2 Concert 2010/01/21
Posted: 5/15/2010
Liz - I came all the way from Hungary and waited for 6 years to finally meet her and all I can say is… The concert was simply AMAZING!!!!! It worth every penny I spent. Singing with her Do-Re-Mi was a moment I will cherish forever, frankly those 3 minutes worth all the way to London and back... =) She looked absolutely stunning, frankly Julie is more and more beautiful as time goes by…=) She has grace, she has style, she is a real legend!!! We sat on level 4, very high, but we had a great view to the stage and... we could see her backstage!!! The whole concert started with the Sound of Music "I know I will hear what I heard before.... and I will sing once more" then she came in...=) The second half was about Simeon's Gift, personally I do not like musicals too much, but this one was simply wonderful!!! So I was absolutely HAPPY =) about the concert!!!!!... Julie you were absolutely amazing and we love you! =) =) =)

The definitely need to bring back the original cast for the movie. They were so powerful and such a good group together on stage that they would be awesome on screen together!

I have watched many of your movies and appearances., but did not know you had so many until I decided to look you up on the internet. I noticed a nice letter from you to the class of 70 at our class reunion, and can now see why you were unable to attend. Good Luck in your endeavors and I am so glad to have came across this information! Sincerly, Mary Schutzenhofer (Baker)

The setting was incredible, the play flowed in and out of the life's of people in the cemetery. I enjoyed it and would recommend it to all. Great historical facts, great stories and a great introduction to the Oakwood Cemetery and the Burning Coal Theater.

Patti LuPone Talks Broadway, TV's Musical Turn 2010/05/14
Posted: 5/14/2010
Chris - We can't really know what exactly Patti lupone meant in her comments since she doesn't explain -she boils everything down to "Dancing with the Stars is pathetic." This would include the world championship professionals that not only teach but also perform exhibitions every week, and the dance professional guest stars that perform every week. The show has even hosted Broadway cast performances. I'm fairly certain, in that sense, viewers are being shown some talent. I totally understand your comment about Idol. It is a corporate PR machine. Howdever, I would ask - do you think the singers you mentioned (plus perhaps Jennifer Hudson, Miranda Lambert, & Kelli Pickler) have no talent or are any more "derivative" than the majority of performers on Broadway? Regardless, to say these things was silly. These comments distract from the main point of the article and really don't paint her in a good light. (I don't understand the "poor Susan Boyle" reference, frankly, but that also seems negative and unnecessary.)

Patti LuPone Talks Broadway, TV's Musical Turn 2010/05/14
Posted: 5/14/2010
John - LuPone is talking about the D-list stars that APPEAR on DWTS...DWTS is NOT a real competition show, its a FAKE show...do you really think winning the 'mirror-ball throphy' on DWTS is a big deal? Does it lead to anything REAL? I too watch DWTS, but I KNOW its not real ballroom dancing. PBS used to show real ballroom dancing with the great late Juliet Prowse as host...that's what should be shown on ABC...as for Amer Idol, LuPone is also correct...it's a corporate show making money out of an unkown person and 'making' them into a star...in the past 10 years only two or three singers have been able to break-out from the 'make me a star' mold: Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood & Daughtry...everyone has been manufactored as a star, nothing real with no deepth...

Posted: 5/14/2010
simon - @ Jeremy - It makes absolutely no sense, for Glenn Beck or otherwise, to make any comparisons between Nazi Germany and modern day USA. It is an insult to the millions who died every time someone bandies the word about just to make their point sound more important. You live in a country of unprecedented wealth, education, multiculturalism, health and freedom - enjoy it! When your government actually goes out and starts killing millions of your own illegally, then by all means you can go out and start making the Hitler/Nazi comparison. Secondly, the focus of the Daily Show clip (if you're watched it) is clearly to point out (again) Beck's blatant hypocrisy. He rails against comments saying the Arizona law is like Nazi-like (which yes, was a stupid comment - see above), yet at the same time is constantly making the same insensitive and sensationalist type comments. Any hypocrisy deserves to be rooted out and lampooned, it doesn't matter which side of the fence you sit on.

Jeremy - The difference is Glen Beck's arguments actually make sense. Listen to his show, and tell me logically (not emotionally or comedically-if that's a word) where he is wrong, then we can have an intelligent conversation. The Arizona law if simply enforcing a law that already exists and it specifically prohibits the kind of racist treatment you are claiming it will promote.

Patti LuPone Talks Broadway, TV's Musical Turn 2010/05/14
Posted: 5/14/2010
Chris - While. Some rather rude and crude (and slightly ignorant) comments from Patti regarding Dancing with the Stars and American idol. You would think she invented the concept of the Broadway diva. Although she may be the best the best, she certainly wasn't the first to do what she does or to do it how she does it. Would she characterize herself as derivative? I see in the Variety article she also managed to speak negatively of Susan Boyle. Interesting. I watch Dancing with the Stars and I enjoy the world champion professionals on the show as much as I enjoy the professional dance guests they have and the spirit of the celebrities trying to learn such a difficult craft. I suspect she's never actually watched the show if she feels there are no professionals or talent on it. Therefore I'm actually disappointed in her elitist sounding comments, and I truly have been a fan for years. Maybe Pattie woke up on the wrong side of the bed.

Perhaps the author confuses words that begin with the same letter. Note to Pat Cerasaro: while "Mormonism to Mermanism" is clever it's about as accurate as "Martianism to Mermanism".

TLC Renews New Wedding Series FOUR WEDDINGS For Second Season 2010/05/13
Posted: 5/14/2010
Wendy - As an event planner I watched this show twice by myself and the last time I asked my husband to watch it with me. The reason I did this was I noticed that the first two times the bride with the big budget won. I wanted to make sure that I wasn't being petty. Now mind you they were nice weddings. But if each one of those brides had all of that money to throw at a wedding I think they all would have been different. The one on the beach may have had a tent for shelter, the other won't have run out of food. There would have been cocktails at the cocktail style wedding. I also noticed that the brides that won could have paid for their own d*** honeymoon. Put a limit on the budgets or match the budgets better. The way it is now makes the other brides look cheap & cheesy & they are not. They were very creative with what they had and should be proud.

BWW Reviews: GIRLS NIGHT THE MUSICAL at the Kimmel Center 2010/04/24
Posted: 5/14/2010
Barb - I think their weight, though it has absolutely nothing to do with the show itself, was refreshing, I'm a real woman. I have curves and I'm proud of them. I'd rather see real women than anorexic sticks. People that make comments about weight are rude and more than likely they have weight issues themselves. As for their beauty- I think they're probably all very beautiful girls under the terrible costumes and outrageous make up- who are you to judge their attractiveness? Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Don't let bitter people get you down girls. I saw the show and I thought you were all very talented. Though some bits were over the top I had an all around great time as did my friends. We'll be back to see it again!

McG to Helm 'Spring Awakening' Movie Musical 2010/05/14
Posted: 5/14/2010
LauraBellLover - The movie would be a HUGE money maker and hit, and probably really good too if they cast as follows: Lea Michele as Wendla (she's the original and she's super huge now) Zach Efron as Melchior (who wouldn't pay to see Zach get naked with Lea - I think he could probably sing it too) Jonathan Groff as Moritz (even though he originated Melchior on stage - for screen he's more of a Moritz, he's getting really famous too and he's good, and he knows the part even though he never played it and would probably get an oscar nod if the movie was good) None of the other parts really matter as much :o) But it would be cool if they got the other gay glee kid who plays Kurt to play the gay kid in the movie. Here's to hoping the movie ends up being GREAT! It might work or it might be terrible.......... we'll see.........

Posted: 5/14/2010
lynne - Thank you for this Q&A! I only wish I'd had a chance to see his performance. Small correction: in Law's first quote, last sentence, he probably said "full stop" (i.e., a period), not "false stop."

BroadwayWorld.com Announces Broadway Critics Report Card 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/14/2010
Candy - Indeed, critics should always keep in mind that the job they undertake can influence many who, either lack their own opinions or convictions, or just go along due to lack of time for more research and just decide to give these critics undue credit. I agree that creating a "report card' for them is preposterous. Critics have killed many a great show with their comments by keeping Theatergoers, who would otherwise have enjoyed such a show, away from the door. I understand that some critics might want to critique every aspect of a show with extreme care to the artform being presented, but they also need to know that this can quickly get to the extreme of underscoring a good, perhaps great, show. And the sad outcome would be that the public will abstain from engaging a show due to the misleading scores. The notion that the Theatre patrons should be the ones rating the shows is perhaps a better idea.

BroadwayWorld.com Announces Broadway Critics Report Card 2010/05/12
Posted: 5/14/2010
Candy - (continued from previous comment) Critics should be allowed TWO scores: One for "their" opinion of the artistic/theatrical aspects of the show, and, slash, another for how enjoyable and engaging the show has proved for the average Theatergoer. This way, people will have a more adept measurement of whether the show will be something they want to see or not. For those of us, including mainly the critics, who are beyond savvy about the Theater, let's not forget that as an art form, it should be left to its patrons to decide its worthiness in "their" opinion.

Tony Overseers Withdraw Best Costume Design Nomination from Loquasto for RAGTIME 2010/05/13
Posted: 5/14/2010
Ray Workman - I was surprised that RAGTIME was even revived in the first place. It was only 12 years since the original. I wish these producers would dig down in trunk and revive some chestnuts like MAME, HELLO, DOLLY! or FUNNY GIRL. LA CAGE, RAGTIME, were just done, recently.

Tony Overseers Withdraw Best Costume Design Nomination from Loquasto for RAGTIME 2010/05/13

roseaddams - ...are you drunk? No, he should not received a second nomination for the exact same work he did twelve years ago which got nominated then. There's nothing wrong with reusing the costumes -- but they were already seen and nominated in the same show. Just like Les Miserables didn't receive any nominations for its design and technical elements that were taken from the original show.
