McG to Helm 'Spring Awakening' Movie Musical 2010/05/14
Posted: 6/3/2010
ellen - zac efron really? just because it would "look hot" and saying someone who played a character whos gay could play another character just cause he already played a characters it's a tad stereo typical. you obivously don't get the message of spring awakening

'Giant' the Musical Deserves a Shot at Broadway
Posted: 6/3/2010
David - I was one of the lucky individuals to have seen this show at the Signature. As a person with a well rounded knowledge of theatre (especially musicals) I believe this show could bring the class, drama, and musical depth that has recently been lost in many new B-way productions back to its formal glory. This show was beautiful and inspiring!! I would give anything to see this show go all the way. LaChiusa has an amazing talent for placing the deepest emotional feeling into his works. This show was long, about three and a half hours if I recall. However, I felt that this three and a half hours passed all too quickly. I truly hope that this show gets the backing it so greatly deserves and that the talents of the original cast used at the Signature theatre are fully utilized in any future production.

Claudia Shear's RESTORATION Directed by Christopher Ashley Comes to NY Theatre Workshop Spring 2010
Posted: 6/3/2010
Jane Bernard - Hi- I had the pleasure of seeing Restoration on Sunday afternoon and found it a veritable tour de force of theater mastery and talent - from the set to the script. The script is utterly brilliant- 4 of the main characters go through touching and uplifting transformations with an elan that swept the audience off its feet. I'm certain that this play will shine on Broadway! Bravo!

Obama Presents McCartney with Gershwin Prize - Official Transcript 2010/06/03
Posted: 6/3/2010
Revolution - If John Lennon were alive, he'd be giving President Obama an earful right now about escalating the Bush-Cheney Wars and War Crimes, and the bailing out of Bank crooks. McCartney was always the safe, corporate, conforming, Beatle. The real songwriting giant and genius was John Lennon, who used Rock music as a platform for challenging authority, and the insanity of the World that we live in.

Golden Girl and WICKED Star Rue McClanahan Dies at 76 2010/06/03
Posted: 6/3/2010
Joseph Howlett - I first saw Rue McClanahan Off Broadway in the Dylan Thomas play UNDER MILKWOOD. I saw her in JIMMY SHINE(which was a play, NOT a musical)starring Dustin Hoffman and featuring Dorothy Emmerson. Rue was a fine actress, not just the comedienne she was most well known for in her justly praised television work. She died too young.

Midler, Lott Star in 'Sweet Baby Jesus' FIlm 2010/05/24
Posted: 6/3/2010
Cheryl - Is this actually filmed in Bethelehem MD. I used to live there as a teen ager I sure hope so the star in the center of the Hwy at the corner where the post office is was made by my father in the 1960's and I used to live in the house across the street from the post office. In those days at Christmas time we would all get together and stamp the cache of the wisemen on camels with a star in the sky. It was all volunteer at that time and was done in the community center at the little catholic church behind where I used to live. Such wonderful memories for me

Ray Workman - My guess would be since FINIANS RAINBOW has closed, the cast may have moved on to other assignments, possibly on the West Coast and may not be available. The high cost of airfare, hotel arrangements would put off many producers for a three minute musical number for a show that closed several months ago. Too bad FINIANS RAINBOW is not running now. It was wonderful!

McG to Helm 'Spring Awakening' Movie Musical 2010/05/14
Posted: 6/3/2010
Emma - I love the original cast as much as the next person, but I really think the vast majority of them including Lea Michele, Johnathan Groff, John Gallagher Jr., and Lauren Pritchard are already too old for a movie adaptation. According to the original story and the musical, these characters are supposed to be between 13 and 15 years old, and as much as i love the original cast I think it would take away from the point story if they were cast just because they were the originals. An important aspect that the creators of the musical emphasized when Spring Awakening began its rise to fame was that they wanted to cast new younge actors who had little experience on stage but had great talent and potential. Personally, I think they should cast mostly new unknown actors if they eventually do bring Spring Awakening to the Big Screen.

Caliann - I often wonder what on earth is wrong with the parents of some of these pagent kids(Makenzie Myers) they just let this child run their lives and when MaKenzie behaves so badly her parents don't do a darn thing about reprimending her and giving a 4 year old a pacifier thats just sick!. MaKenzie needs to have a good old fashion a--whooping, if I was related to that child I would be too embarrased to admit it cause she acts so horrible.

Tiffany - Makenzie Myers, boy her parents need a huge wake up call. That 4 year old little girl controls her parents, treats other children badly and sadly enough she sounds like a 40 year old smoker. I think the way her parents are allowing this child to behave is a form of abuse, they are completely failing there child they just are not leaving visible marks on her. And the most unfortunate part of the entire thing is that I end up feeling like I truly dislike the child but it is the parents who are at fault. Someone should step in quickly and fix that situation, if not life will not only hit the parents hard but Makenzie wont get far or have any "true" friends behaving that way I would never let my child be influenced by Makenzie or her parents.

Cary - I can't get over the behavior of Makenzie Myers, 4 year old pageant newcomer. This spoiled little girl needs to be taught manners and graciousness. I don't blame the pageant system. She's new to pageants. I don't blame Makenzie. She is acting how she was allowed to act. I think it sad that her parents feel she should be allowed to do whatever she wants, but you find that in and out of pageants. Boy will they be in for a rude awakening soon.

I am glad Avalon will be part of this event. Love you Dick Clark! God bless.

Jamie Lankin - You clearly didn't get the show Mark. It is deliberately written as a show that makes fun of every musical characteristic already around. There is a narrator, because they are making fun of how musicals have narrators. This is proven when he says "You don't think I wanted a story with depth? Instead I got a show with poop jokes". He makes fun of every single thing before the audience or critics have a chance to. It's sad you didn't get this, seeing as Broadway World has been so gracious as to let you review.

Brian Williams Heads To The Gulf 6/1-2 2010/06/01
Posted: 6/2/2010
Nina Council - I as a grandmother am horrified at the devastation occuring all around our planet, the oil spill, polluted rivers, lakes, soils, our air, everything is polluted. Humans are over populating this planet, and this planet cannot sustain the growing populations, when are humans going to wake and realize what is happening. There is no such as cleaning up the oil spill. All of the coverage of the spill intentionally tried to make light of the situation saying that this and that was going to stop the spill. I knew all along that these fixes could not happen. People have told me that the Arabs have ships that can actually collect water, separate the water from the oil, put clean water and send the oil to tankers, why are those ships summoned to the U.S. Someone else told me that Kevin Cosner is involved in some project that can collect oil, why is nothing said about it. Lastly I am furious that so little is said about the millions of creatures who are already dead, and are dying. Why is coverage so terribly limited.

Nina Council - I sure as hell do have some comments. I have been watching a number of different newscasts over this past month daily involving the oil spill. I do not understand how oil companys in the first place are given permission to drill for oil at depths deeper than a hundred feet. Divers can dive to 100 feet and can do work at that depth, but to rely on computers to repair something at 5,000 is insanity. Having experienced scuba diving at 60 feet, the pressure even at that depth is terrific. I have no faith whatsoever in BP repairing anything. I am so angry, so disgusted, and so disappointed in the stupidity of us humans. I am a furious grandmother.

I hope, too, that you would speak out about the U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan. Peace, Matt

Mary Thomas - Thankyou Visitors from Holland. I could not have voiced it better myself. I attended both the Hollywood Bowl (10$) & O2 (£100!!!)concerts. Despite the expense it was a joy & privilege to be in the presence of someone so special to us. She has had such an influence on our young lives (now in successive generations!) inhabiting such impressionable roles as Mary Poppins & Maria von Trapp which perfectly showcased her extraordinary range as singer, actress & engaging persona. The cruel act of fate robbing her of her greatest talent has only served to bring out her other talents writing, acting, supporting charities & of course being a wonderful generous & fun loving hostess. It is a pity the UK has not kept up with her these past years, hence the ignorant remarks. More intensive Marketting before the event would have served her better. God bless her.

helen zelon - One of the finest, kindest friends I have ever known. A great teacher and a great, great man: Generous, gregarious, outrageously funny, an artist to the quick. The world's loss, and our astonishingly sudden heartache. Deep sympathies to Jeannie, whose husband adored her, and whose love and support are as boundless as the sea, and prayers for peace and consolation. Bernice, the world just loved your son.

John - In October of 2006 it became the world's Second Longest Running Musical. As a fan, I do hope it lasts the 41 years, 8 months of The Fantasticks, but it still has a way to go.

gleeonmyface - Mercedes and Quinn are friends now because Mercedes was helped by Quinn when Mercedes was trying to lose weight and she stopped eating and collapsed..they have respect for each other... I do agree with you on the whole "theme". I hope they make it no so painfully obvious what the theme is going to be, or make it some combination...surprise the audience. also i hope that the new characters that come on don't outshine anybody so it can make room for the characters like Santana and Brittany...and the two guys who i forgot their names...let there plot develop before bombarding us with too many characters to keep track of.
