Anyone else going to Newsies Summer Encore tonight or Sat?! I'm going tonight! I saw it in theaters the first time it was so fun!

Well, Moulin Rouge just got great reviews in the Boston try-out. word is that it is coming to NYC in 2019. Here is a "video" of it. Not a video of the show, just a video that they made for promotion:

Whoop-hoo!! I just got a last minute invitation to the opening night of Pretty Woman on Thursday!! Don't hate. 😜

However, my invite said this on it:
"Please keep in mind that our lovely Nederlander Theatre is small and intimate. Because of this, seating is quite a challenge, and there is a huge demand for tickets. Please keep an open mind and enjoy this evening to celebrate our special show."

I translate this to mean the following: "Your seats are going to be in the last row of the balcony, all the way on the corner, with the tallest man ever born sitting directly in front of you." But hey, I'm not complaining.

I finally saw Newsies this past weekend in a regional, professional production at the Engeman Theatre in Northport, Long Island. Loved every minute of it, and sad that I missed the Broadway production. It is surprisingly subversive, and speaks truth to power, particularly relevant in today's political landscape. Here is a cutting of Seize the Day and Santa Fe from the Broadway production's appearance on The View a few years back:

This is a really fun video. They call it the "try not to sing along challenge". I think a better challenge is to see if you can name every show in it. Either way, it's a lot of songs. ;)

Broadway actress Marin Mazzie has just passed away after an epic battle with cancer, at just 57. I'm devastated by this news. Here are a few clips from her amazing career. RIP.

This was said before but I am bumping this thread because I just read more about it:

Cats the musical is being adapted to a movie with Steven Spielberg executive producing, Andrew Lloyd Webber even making a new song, and a star studded cast like Taylor Swift, Ian McKellan, Jennifer Hudson...

Not sure how I feel about this.

And Judi Dench and Idris Elba just signed on. It's almost as if the producers have serious dirt on every one of these people to get them to agree to be in it.

yes...same people who made the kong AA at Universal in fact
Wait, is that true? Asking, because I am not sure, but this is made by a group called Global Creatures. They did the Walking With Dinosaurs arena shows, and they are also behind the West End production of Strictly Ballroom, and....wait for it...wait for it....Moulin Rouge.
