I like how the first two episodes still feel connected to each other given that Gwen Verdon arrives back into Germany at the end of the first episode to find out about Bob Fosse’s affair, then the second episode focuses on how the two of them first met.April 19, 2019 at 7:52 am #1202858888

I recently took Hillary & Clinton out of my predictions for Best Play. It would not surprise me if Laurie Metcalf once again ends up being the sole nominee from her production just like she was for November, The Other Place, and Misery. As for my current predicted lineup for Best Play, they are…
To Kill a Mockingbird
What the Constitution Means to Me
The tipping point for me will be how Gary: A Sequel to Titus Andronicus ends up being received when it opens in two days.April 18, 2019 at 7:09 pm #1202858453
Speaking of Hillary & Clinton, it just opened on Broadway, and the critical response has been mixed-to-positive.
Now I’m starting to wonder if it’s as sure of a thing for a Best Play nomination as many people are currently predicting.April 18, 2019 at 4:00 pm #1202858306
The Public Theater’s hit production of Sea Wall/A Life will be transferring to Broadway’s Hudson Theatre this summer with Tom Sturridge and Jake Gyllenhaal reprising their roles.
Tom Sturridge has previously performed at the Hudson Theatre in 1984 while Jake Gyllenhaal previously opened that same venue with Sunday in the Park with George. Interestingly enough, Gyllenhaal was suppose to open the Hudson two years ago with the Michael Mayer-helmed revival of Burn This, and here he is getting ready to go in there after the production finishes its limited run with Adam Driver.April 18, 2019 at 5:43 am #1202857717
On this day in 1994, Disney debuted their very first Broadway musical with a stage adaptation of the 1991 animated film, Beauty & the Beast. Despite receiving mixed critical reviews, the show became a hit that introduced Broadway to a family audience, ran for 13 years, and launched a theatrical empire for the Mouse House.
Let’s take a look back at the history of Beauty & the Beast as well as its success at the Tonys.

You do know that it was in Walt Disney’s will to have all of the classics remade right…? In his will he demanded that his company remake his some of his movies every 10 years so that all generations can enjoy them!! Yes they are gaining money but this is what Walt Disney wanted to there is no way they are going to quit doing this.
I did not know that. Though little did Walt Disney realize that future generations can discover original incarnations of the classics through VHS tapes, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and streaming.April 17, 2019 at 8:29 pm #1202857343April 17, 2019 at 7:05 pm #1202857280
Hadestown has finally opened on Broadway, and for the most part, critics seem to think that it lives up to the hype.

Guys, I am going to NYC next week I was wondering what shows I should see…
If you’re interested in musicals, the ones you should look into are Hadestown, Kiss Me, Kate, Oklahoma!, The Prom, and Tootsie. If you’re interested in plays, the ones you should look into are The Ferryman, Hillary & Clinton, and To Kill a Mockingbird.April 17, 2019 at 1:30 pm #1202856965
