Katie Holmes Lands Guest Role on GLEE 2010/07/04
Posted: 7/4/2010
Frank - These rumors of guest stars are getting ridiculous. If everyone who was rumored to be on was on, they might as well get rid of the wonderful cast they have.

Max - The Time Dragon Clock plays a huge role in the book. The main purpose is to pay homage to the book. Wicked is my favorite show, but I do agree with this reviewer on one or two aspects. I do find a scene or two boring, but I disagree with the show not building energy until Defying Gravity. All in all, we know that Wicked has been the #1 grossing show on Broadway for a looong time and will remain that way. This show is my personal favorite and will be around for a long time.

Photo Flash: Cast Set For ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S BIG GAY DANCE PARTY 2010/07/02
Posted: 7/4/2010
Rick - WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU PEOPLE??! Is there nothing (or no one) honorable-enough to NOT be poked at in a slanderous way anymore? I mean, how ABSURD--given that Lincoln was married and had four children. Have a little DECENCY in you and at least make fun of someone that might actually call (or have called) the issue into question. This is not creativity for the sake of humor--it's stupidity for the sake of being "cutting edge" in promoting sexual subject matter!

JERSEY BOYS Stars Rebrand Concert Following Lawsuit 2010/06/14
Posted: 7/4/2010
SUE - I saw the Boys in Biloxi Friday night.The theater was packed and the concert was the best I've been to in years.The crowd really proved that they wanted to here more. Not all of us were able to go to New York to see them and hear there music so it was GREAT the Boys brought the music to us! If they would come back to the coast I have at least 10 friends and family that would come to the show just from me telling them JUST HOW GREAT the BOYS IN CONCERT show really was! Please come to the south more often. TO CHRISTIAN-......LONG LIVE THE SIXTIES MUSIC!

Robert - They don't need a lion costume, the whole point of only seeing his tail is because he's the COWARDLY lion. And the time dragon makes perfect sense, yes they only mention it in the beginnig, but it watches over Oz so obviously it has importance. (plus it looks wicked cool! =p)

matt d - You do realize that when Wicked opened on Broadway, reviews weren't favorable. Check out Brantley's NY Times Review from the October opening. In fact, many of his complaints match what this reviewer states. I have seen Wicked twice, and have noticed the same issues. What is important to remember is that this was one show that managed to beat the reviews, and that's fantastic, many shows are not as lucky. And the complaint about the Dragon clock is a valid one because it is mentioned in passing near the beginning of the show and is never really mentioned again, unlike the book where it plays a larger part.

ABBA-Cadabra at the Las Vegas Hilton: Was ABBA Really Like This?
Posted: 7/3/2010
Roger Loh - ABBA Cadabra performed in Singapore on 2-4 July 2010. They were truly excellent, bringing back memories of a great era past... an evening well spent reminiscing the popular tunes of Waterloo, The Winner Takes It All. Great performance. Don't miss it if they come to your town.

BWW Reviews: Vivino Shines As Elphaba But WICKED Underwhelms 2010/07/03
Posted: 7/3/2010
Matt - Like this review matters AT ALL. The reviewer is trying to stand out by hating on one of the most successful shows in musical theatre. He knows it's a phenomenal show and just wants attention. If anything this will discredit her validity as a theatre reviewer. This will not effect ticket sales of the tour and Wicked will be on Broadway for a VERY long time. This girl is not very smart and clearly doesn't know theatre.

Posted: 7/3/2010
carol edelston - After seeing numerous Shakespeare plays in England. I was pleasantly surprised that the staging and acting were equal to and in some cases better than I have seen. I only wish that we had a concept such as this in England. Carry on the good work making Shakespeare so accessable. The comments I heard on exiting the theatre were so positive.

Ruth McCartney Kicks Off MacArthur Park Summer Concert Series 7/7 2010/07/01
Posted: 7/3/2010
Glen - Gee, Laura, I think you missed the point. Ruth McCartney is doing something really great to help promote the Harmony Project, which helps kids who otherwise couldn't afford it to learn music, and Levitt Pavilions, that provide free music and community enrichment to families free of charge. Sounds to me like her heart is in the right place, and I think Paul would approve. And, by the way, Paul's dad adopted Ruth, so yes, she is his sister. I hope your day improves.

Zeta-Jones & Lansbury Play Last NIGHT MUSIC; Show Re-Opens 7/13 2010/06/20
Posted: 7/3/2010
Don Treact - 1. At the beginning of the U.S. discovering Jessica Fletcher in 1984, she comes in from jogging to answer a call from her nephew Grady. He has secretly taken her novel The Corpse Danced At Midnight to a New York publisher. She says, "Grady, it's 6:23 in the morning!" In the 1984 movie "WarGames" the actress Juanine Clay, who has died, tells the group of males in the secret mountain facility that if the Soviets were to launch a first strike, the U.S. president would have "23 minutes, 6 if it's sub-launched." This is a match.

Zeta-Jones & Lansbury Play Last NIGHT MUSIC; Show Re-Opens 7/13 2010/06/20
Posted: 7/3/2010
Don Treact - 2. Matthew Broderick, the star of "WarGames," is connected to Sarah Jessica Parker. The latter, who is not in "WarGames," is in "The Flight of the Navigator." The son in that movie is also in the two-part story of Jessica Fletcher seeking out her dead husband Frank's brother Carl at a circus. Carl is played by the actor who plays Perry White, Clark Kent's editor in the second Superman movie. In that, Margot Kidder as Lois Lane goes to Paris and rides the elevator up in the Eiffel Tower to get the scoop on "terrorists" threatening to detonate a hydrogen bomb. Spelling looks okay.

Posted: 7/3/2010
Harry Wagner - I saw a production of the Mikado in Israel (in English) about seven years ago. It was an exciting night for me as I thought it was well done. beautifally staged and costumed with rich voices throuhout the cast considering the minimal turnout of English speaking performers. I look forward to being even more enthralled wth the pptopa production.

Charice On GLEE: In and Nemesis to 'Rachel Berry?' 2010/06/21
Posted: 7/3/2010
Gabrielle J. F - CHARICE DESPARATE - you do not recognize at all pure talent.. The experts here in the USA all recognze who can sing and who cannot sing - who can sustain singing for hours without getting exhausted and maintain the quality ..... David Foster sis so proud of her, he refers to her as a laser beam - You can only tell who is realy good when one sings "Live" vs on recorded song. Recorded songs are crafted and had t be done for as long as a year to perfect the song and will sound good. So no matter what everyone says ( those who do not even know music) Charice is just starting and on her way to big fame, like Celine, Barbra Streisand and Maria Carey....... Remember - CHARICE IS JUST STARTING HER CAREER and she has her very own original recorded songs........ no one can surpass that. Thanks David Foster!!!!

First Family Takes in MARY POPPINS in DC 2010/07/02
Posted: 7/3/2010
Ray Workman - Too bad that the First Family chooses a Disney stage musical, instead of a classic introduction for first timers like KING AND I, MY FAIR LADY etc. The children today don't know the real thrill of live theater. They are seeing falling helicopters, falling Paris Opera house crystal lighting fixtures, etc. Classic musical theater is NOT DISNEY. You can keep Mary Poppins, Lion King, Beauty and Beast and The Mermaid. Give me ANNIE GET YOUR GUN, FIDDLER ON THE ROOF, HELLO, DOLLY!, anyday!

We thoroughly enjoyed their performance and can't wait to go see them again. I only wish they would have had some cd's or dvd's to sell to us. If you go see them in concert, you will be more than thrilled!
