Julie Krupinski - I think is great to see all the broadway stars together for this moment.

BWW Exclusive: InDepth InterView: Scarlett Johansson 2010/06/25
Posted: 7/5/2010
Elsa - I would feel better of Liev Schreiber had also won a Tony, as 'twas he who created the atmosphere that won Johansson her Tony. It just was not fair to a lot of people.

Nickelodeon Postpones Cincinnati Engagement Of STORYTIME LIVE! 7/7-8 2010/06/23
Posted: 7/5/2010
Peter Brockenbrow - I understand that shows sometimes get cancelled for "unforeseen" circumstances. But one at least expects in the markets affected by such cancellations that the bombardment of tv commercials is also cancelled. Try and explain to a 3 year old that after watching her favorite show, the constant TV commercials are a mistake and really, truly, honestly the very show you were promised to be taken to is actually cancelled. PS nice money maker on retaining the service charges on tickets.

Prince Music Theater Launches Summer Cinema to Battle Financial Difficulties 2010/07/01
Posted: 7/5/2010
tjinphilly - The only way for the Prince to survive is for the board to release Marjorie Samoff. The long history of bounced checks, violated agreements and bad business decisions is all due to the management. What has prompted the board to sit idle and silent? Ms. Samoff must be let go.

JERSEY BOYS Stars Rebrand Concert Following Lawsuit 2010/06/14
Posted: 7/5/2010
Janet - My husband and I saw them in Chautauqua, NY They were great. I fell in love with them from Jersey Boys, I saw them 3 times in NY, and once went they left Jersey Boys, not the same show since they left. I would love to see them in Central NY (Syracuse) and know others woulod also. Janey

Jason Robert Brown Battles Music Copyrite Infringment 2010/06/30
Posted: 7/5/2010
elyot - "You're such a drama queen!" You're absolutely right. I went way over the top with this whole thing and let it and what you've been saying here take up far too much space in my head. We obviously had different perceptions of the exchange between JRB and Eleanor. Where you saw "arrogance" I saw someone who had the self-respect to stand up for himself. Everybody has the right to his or her opinion and it was wrong of me to make such a big deal out of yours. I should know better than to try to mess with other peoples' perception, especially considering how tenaciously I usually cling to my own. Thanks. Good lesson for me.

BWW Reviews: Vivino Shines As Elphaba But WICKED Underwhelms 2010/07/03
Posted: 7/5/2010
Josh - Ya...the dragon. It's actually a BIG reference back to the novel that is too awkward to work into the show, so they incorporated it into the set...I thought it was clever. The book always has been the show's weakest link. It's trying to be 2 things at once...Elphaba's tragedy and an uplifting story about friendship. It would have been less lumbering and much more of a critical success had they stuck to the first one, but without the second, it never would have impacted audiences the way it does. The second story is what took the piece from novelty Wizard of Oz companion to something that people can relate to in their hearts that has relevance to the world.

Photo Flash: Cast Set For ABRAHAM LINCOLN'S BIG GAY DANCE PARTY 2010/07/02
Posted: 7/4/2010
Jackie - Rick- Clearly you know nothing about this show. I worked on a production of this show last school year and you are exactly the kind of person this show is targeting. for example: given that Lincoln was married and had four children, is in fact an argument in the script. Perhaps if you looked into the theories that Lincoln was gay you might change your mind and be able to see things at least a little differently. I am not saying that Lincoln was or was not gay, I myself don't really have an opinion on the matter, but I at least understand why people would believe that he is. Especially due to Lincoln's relationship with Joshua Speed, his close friend whom he shared a BED with in the middle of the summer. I am not saying that you are wrong, but please look closer into things before you attack them.

BWW Reviews: A TRAGEDY for the Jon Stewart Generation 2010/06/21
Posted: 7/4/2010
Brent Englar - Hi James, I am familiar with the works of Beckett. The major reason why TRAGEDY didn't measure up to the best examples of absurdism, at least to me, is because I felt its scope was limited, despite Eno's command of language, to a satire of contemporary news programs, something I find much more palatable in brief chunks, rather than 60-minute stretches, Thanks for the comment. Brent

BWW Reviews: Vivino Shines As Elphaba But WICKED Underwhelms 2010/07/03
Posted: 7/4/2010
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.

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!

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!
