So the ALW musical is called Bad Cinderella. I thought it was just a bad show called Cinderella. I hope it’s not both.
I enjoyed CoL. I’ve even seen some understudies in my workplace, though I didn’t know at the time.September 27, 2022 at 10:55 am #1205099905
Do you think this will come to Broadway: https://playbill.com/article/ethan-pakchar-douglas-lyons-and-harrison-david-rivers-to-workshop-new-musical-five-points-at-discovering-broadway-writers-retreat Seems like what Paradise Square could have been.
Also People has a piece about Kimberly Akimbo: https://people.com/theater/broadway-kimberly-akimbo-throws-it-back-to-1999-first-look-pics/September 22, 2022 at 11:17 am #1205094691
I support naming a theater for Hal Prince.September 21, 2022 at 9:28 am #1205092741
The LCT website calls The Old Man & the Pool a special event, I’m not sure if the Tonys will agree.
I guess the Majestic is due for a renovation, and it might take a while considering the Nederlander, which is smaller, took almost six months between Rent and Guys and Dolls.
What about the Palace? I hope to see that one reopen soon.September 20, 2022 at 8:58 pm #1205092315
I enjoyed The New One, this should be good. Also it’s nice the Beaumont is getting use before Camelot. Is this a new play or a special event?
Right now the Music Box, the Nederlander, the Winter Garden, the Marquis, the St. James, the Barrymore, the Hudson, the Golden, the Longacre and the Majestic will be open in the spring. I think the Majestic’s too big for Sing Street or Prima Facie, but it would be a good fit for ALW’s Cinderella.September 20, 2022 at 8:44 pm #1205092300
Also John Travolta seems worthy. I imagine his tribute will include his dance routines, possibly done by Tiler Peck. She’s already recreated his scenes from Grease and Pulp Fiction.September 19, 2022 at 7:44 pm #1205090799
Considering how Tootsie got a backlash, as did Jagged Little Pill for trans erasure, and even Mrs. Doubtfire came under scrutiny, I’m not sure how Some Like It Hot will play these days. I just hope they keep the iconic closing line.
Edit 9/20: Also it’s a shame Beetlejuice is closing. I was glad it got another chance.September 18, 2022 at 5:31 pm #1205089188
Becky Ann Baker? I saw her at the 2009 Williamstown Theatre Festival.September 17, 2022 at 6:19 pm #1205087864
It looks ultramodern and stripped down. I’ll have to see it for myself, which I will do in a few weeks.September 16, 2022 at 10:02 pm #1205086950
Well it is done in school productions, but currently it’s only available for high school, college and youth groups. I meant amateur theaters. It’s actually closing February 18 next year, so just as before it’s outlasting Into the Woods.

It’s the end of an era: https://nypost.com/2022/09/16/phantom-of-the-opera-will-close-on-broadway/amp/
At least Phantom should be a hit in school productions. And the Majestic is free, plus Cinderella will soon play the Imperial.September 14, 2022 at 9:06 pm #1205084374
Too bad about Floyd Collins. I auditioned for that and wanted to at least see it.September 7, 2022 at 8:27 pm #1205072396
Also, the first 2023-2024 production has been announced: https://www.broadwayworld.com/off-broadway/article/MTC-to-Present-World-Premiere-of-Jocelyn-Biohs-JAJAS-AFRICAN-HAIR-BRAIDING-Fall-2023-20220907September 7, 2022 at 4:46 pm #1205072221
I’ve seen him perform at Williamstown. This should be something to see, since he’s known for playing multiple roles. At least the Nederlander is occupied. That leaves three houses open.Not now
