CARLOTTA ROJAS - I love Whoopi Goldberg so much! She is a great actress with a beautiful voice! I have all her Long plays! But I am convinced that she will not be a great success on Broadway because, unfortunately, all Northamericans are very racist (specially in Arizona) and they hate black people. So Whoopi is black and Americans have black heart. So it´s a shame because the Northamerican culture and history are horrible.

Jeff Lewis Returns to Bravo's 'Flipping Out,' 8/10 2010/08/10
Posted: 8/11/2010
RGoldman - I saw this show for the first time yesterday. I watched about 4 episodes. I'm a real estate developer/owner/operator. I had built to suit commercial buildings for fortune 500 companies. I also did three residential subdivisions. And two commercial subdivisions. I did this with my young sons in tow, without a nanny, housekeeper, house manager or secretary. I kept 95% of my contractors thru my 20 years of business. So I guess what I'm trying to say is Jeff, you need a full time therapist. I know it's frustrating with the contractors, but my saying is you put 150% into you company. The people working for you will but in 100%. I don't see you putting in 150%. Oh it very easy to be mean, Jeff. You are a spoiled brat.

Norman P. Dixon Is Becoming Norman @ NoHo Arts 2010/08/10

Rob Weho - Being gay isn't a "lifestyle." It's a sexual orientation. The same is true of heterosexuality. Examples of lifestyles include living on a houseboat, following the NASCAR circuit, being a couch potato, or attending Star Trek conventions. One's sexual orientation is irrelevant to one's lifestyle (with the exception, I suppose, if one spends the bulk of his or her time pursuing sexual activities or being activist in support of one's own or against another's sexual orientation). I'm surprised that Broadway World, of all sites, can't get this correct.

margaret B - Saw this show on Saturday night and it was fantastic ! Went with a group ranging from 12 to 15 and they all loved it - was actually a very funny and sexy show. I can't tell you how refreshing this show is compared to a few I have seen lately- maybe the young talent, but the Director and Set people have really got this one right - well done !

Hamish Haslop - This is going to be a great series and very interesting. We were very grateful that Sir David and the Atlantic Productions crew stayed and filmed at our Mungumby Lodge (www.mungumby.com) for part of this series. They filmed Peripatus (Velvet Worms) Giant Centerpedes, Termites, Millipedes to name a few in the Mungumby Valley North QLD, Australia as well as Laura, & Rossville. What a top person and team and is the very person we thought he would be. Hamish.

STG Presents Matisyahu in Concert, 8/7 2010/08/07
Posted: 8/11/2010
Caro - I was really looking forward to the concert because I love Matisyahu's CD's. He has a really unique vision, and his voice is beautiful. Unfortunately, the sound inside the Moore Theater was really poor. The Brooklyn Trio, an avant-guard driving sound machine, really doesn't work with Matisyahu's beautiful voice. The sound was so loud that I had a hard time hearing the range and power of Matisyahu's voice. The loudness even unintentionally distorted the great singer's voice. The power and volume of the music was way to big for the small size of the auditorium. Too bad. I went back to listening to the CD's after the concert.

REBECCA The Musical Headed To The West End? 2010/06/21
Posted: 8/11/2010
Theater love - I saw Rebecca in Budapest this March. I wasn't sure what to expect and I had never seen the movie. This was the best musical I have ever seen! It beat Wicked, beat Lion King, Phantom even. Even though the musical was in Hungarian, which I don't speak, I could follow what was going on easily. The musical score is wonderful and the songs are so amazing my friends and I were walking around trying to sing them in Hungarian! The characters are great and you will fall in love with the lead. The show is creepy, interesting, and will keep you guessing. Go see this show!

Might even be some all-important NYC 'sell', for the world & his wife, to know of the involvement of Mrs. Woolf, considering she most important female author in English in 20th C?

The "Crowns" cast (Asolo/2005) are mourning her loss, remembering her Godly spirit, and praying for her husband and family. "You fought a good fight, you finished your course. Now you have been welcomed into heaven's gate to claim your reward". With sympathy and love, Joilet F. Harris

It was such a powerful play that even a plain reading pulled me into the story more than any other play I've watched. The female friend I went with burst into laughs after tears, finishing an entire pack of tissues. Highly recommend this for anyone who has a good heart and enjoys watching drama.

Rest in Peace, Dana.

Anna - I saw it on Sunday and I loved it. Idk if it's because it was the last night and they were all bringing it but it was simply amazing. I was so happy with the Casting. Vanessa did great, much much better than I expected and you could see and feel that the audience liked her. Nicole's voice is really great but her acting leaves much to be desired, she is a singer first and foremost. Traci was awesome and so was Aaron, everyone else did good but to me they were a little outshined by Vanessa, Nicole, Traci and Aaron. Definitely two thumbs up for courage and for pulling this fantastic performance after not even 2 weeks of rehearsal. Bravo!

Kate Shindle Stars in GARBO AND ME At The Paramount 8/6-7 2010/07/27
Posted: 8/10/2010
Jack Macomber - Checked this out on my recent visit to Killington. At first, I was disappointed to see a row of microphones because I was expecting to see an all-out musical complete with sets and costumes. (That was discussed later in the q&a session after the performance). Before long, however, this live radio theatre type performance had completely suspended my disbelief. Anyway, I was blown away by the professionalism and talent. Everyone was superb, with several of the actors taking on multiple roles. Kate Shindle had the allure, mystique and pathos that I associate with Greta Garbo. Frank Galgano reminded me of a young Nathan Lane - not so much in looks but in that "full of the devil" mischief. I can't wait for this to be produced as a hit musical. What are you investors/sponsors waiting for? This piece has fun, fun , fun written all over it and was obviously a labor of love for all involved. Catchy tunes and clever lyrics by Josh and Joanne. Thanks for a great evening.

Oliver Oliveros - WE HAVE A WINNER! TICKETS TO “CATS”! Q. Why is “Cats” a must-see musical? Whew, I’ve shortlisted three (3) best answers from 23 entries: (1)a straightforward and concise answer; (2)an entry from a grade school teacher who recites T.S. Eliot’s poems with her young students; and (3)a personal account of his “love affair” with musical theatre and Ms. Lea Salonga. I’ve picked (3) as the best answer: I find its personal content non-generic and very appealing. And the editor in me says it’s a nicely-written short piece. BroadwayWorld Philippines congratulates VIN! Enjoy "Cats"!

La Cage's Tony-Nominated Gene Barry Dies at 90 2009/12/10
Posted: 8/10/2010
Stan Kern - Thank you for remembering one of the few men of Hollywood who had the courage to portray a gentleman with class. Mr. Barry was an extremely gifted entertainer who always seemed to put his all into his work. One would find it difficult not to believe him to be the real "Bat Masterson" as portrayed in his series. I also greatly admire his commitment to his family over the years. Mr. Barry may have finally been "called", but his legacy as a man of distinction, devotion, intelligence, light heartedness, and caring will live on, indefinitely. He was "a man's man" at a time when TV stars stood for justice, truth, honor -- not afraid to take a stand against evil, and fight for the underdog -- in good taste. He seemed to love the entertainment profession and it showed. Blessings to him and all who helped him be all he was for us. He leaves us with images of charm, grace, dedication, courage, impeccable manners, and a love for life and goodness to uphold and remember, always.

Marked Man - Q: Why is "CATS" a must-see musical? A: Because Cats would not last years and years if it's not that fantastic. Besides seeing our pride (Leah Salonga) in the musical, it's a great feast for the eyes and imagination. It is a must-see because it is something extraordinary. We don't see much musicals in the Philippines like this!

David - you hit the nail on the head with EVERYTHING Allison. The rest of the people here should grow up. This isnt the OBC. This isnt the original production that ran for 12 years. Its a different director, MD, cast, etc.

sarah sy - Q: Why is "CATS" a must-see musical? A: Cats is the first ever broadway musical that I will get to watched. Acrobatic moves give mesmerizing effects to the show. Theatrically is really superb. and Salonga's voice is one of the reason that makes every Filipino proud. =) sarah14sy@live.com ps. I know I'm a bit late but maybe you could give consideration please?? =) thanks.

Photo Flash: Stefanie Powers is 'Norma Desmond' in First Regional Production of SUNSET BLVD 2010/0
Posted: 8/10/2010
Joe - Saw it this weekend....great directing and concept and the set was well done, but the performances were so pathetic it was laughable! Joe Gillis was way too old looking and there was absolutely no chemistry between him and Stephanie Power's Norma. She played the role as a caricature, so much that the audience could not achieve the necessary pity for this sad character. In this production, Powers made her nothing but a lunatic. It was a scary, creepy story in this version, not the sad tour-de-force that I remember delivered by Betty Buckley on Broadway. Her voice was also quite inadequate for the role. Even the Glen Close recording is better than Stephanie Powers. The only decent performances were given by the ensemble overall whose numbers were vocally and visually impressive and the actress who played Betty Schaeffer.

Vin - Any play where Lea Salonga is the lead is definitely a must-watch! I bought my Cats VCD in around 2001 because I am fan of Broadway musicals but the copy is damaged after the first 10-20 minutes. To my frustration, I wasn't able to have it replaced from the Odyssey store of I-don't-remember-which-branch. Perhaps in Alabang Town Center. And to my dismay, I wasn't able to buy another copy in DVD format :( And I have been singing "Memory" for over 2 decades already. I have been a big fan of Lea and a follower since her Miss Saigon days in 1989. I was Grade 6 then, and on the first day the Miss Saigon double casette tapes were released in stores, I was the one who lined up to purchase my copy. I was very lucky to have the original colored libretto with production photos of the musical, which I received from the distributor in the USA. Only 500 copies were released! I have listened to my Miss Saigon casette tapes IN FULL for almost a hundred times already and singing the songs from top to finish since 1989. I am not kidding! That's how I adore Lea. I have followed ALL her interviews on TV in news and news magazine shows up to this day. I bravely auditioned for Miss Saigon in the summer of 1999 in Manila singing "Bui Doi" because it has been my dream to perform on stage with Lea. But sadly, I didn't make it. I watched Miss Saigon on December 23, 1999 in CCP and I heard that it was the last day that Lea performed. I felt very lucky, since people don't get to choose which Kim was going to perform - if it's Lea or her alternate. Watching Cats where Lea is the lead is a moment to behold!

Florenda Corpuz - since I haven't seen any major musical show, I think CATS will be a memorable first especially the fact that Ms. Lea Salonga will headline the show. I would also love to share the experience to my friends and colleagues by publishing a write-up for a Filipino magazine in Japan. Proud to be Pinoy! email add: dang010@yahoo.com
