    AMAZING. I am, however, concerned about Tillinger as director – his track record is an awfully mixed bag and he hasn’t been on Broadway since the creaky Don’t Dress for Dinner in 2012.

    I can’t see Dunaway as Hepburn. And the playwright has a career marked by floperoonies. Hard pass.

    The Michael Jackson estate, facing questions prompted by the new documentary detailing abuse allegations against the singer, announced today that it’s canceling the planned Chicago tryout of Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough. They are now aiming to bring the musical straight to Broadway next summer.

    It’s also worth noting that Terrence McNally will end up having two shows at the Broadhurst (Anastasia and Frankie & Johnny) back-to-back.
