Britney Spears is coming to Broadway
December 2nd, 2022 under Britney Spears, Broadway. [ Comments: none ]

Do you love Broadway? Do you love Britney Spears? Then you are going to love the Broadway musical, Once Upon A One More Time, which includes music from the singer. There are songs like Oops I Did It Again, Lucky, Circus, and Toxic.

What is the story that goes along with the tunes? Once Upon A One More Time features an original story written by Jon Hartmere (bare, The Upside) that flips the script on your favorite fairytale icons. Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid, and other classic storybook characters gather for their fortnightly book club, when-oh baby, baby!-a rogue fairy godmother grants their wish for a new story, by dropping The Feminine Mystique into their corseted laps. The arrival of this new tome spurs a royal revelation: there is more to life than bird-made dresses and true love’s kiss! The ultimate revisionist fairytale for anyone who yearns to feel “stronger than yesterday,”

Cast will be announced at a later date. But what is happening now is that you can buy tickets for the show that has previews starting on May 13th and an opening night on June 22nd. Britney Spears fan club members can purchase tickets now, and the rest of us can get them on Monday.


Nicole Kidman spent $100,000 on Hugh Jackman’s hat
November 28th, 2022 under Broadway, Hugh Jackman, Keith & Nicole Urban. [ Comments: none ]

Fellow Australians Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman are not only former co-stars, but they are also friends.

So it should come as no surprise that the actress came out to see her mate on Saturday in The Music Man on Broadway. However, what is surprising is that it cost her six digits. Not the price of a seat, which comes close to that, but on auction he held after the show for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, a charity that helps people across the country and across the street receive lifesaving medications, health care, nutritious meals, counseling, and emergency financial assistance.

Jackman auctioned off the hat he was wearing to the audience and was surprised to hear Kidman bid $100,000 for it. Her donation will be used to pay for 20,000 meals and 2,000 doctor visits this holiday season!

Today, I tip my $10 (because that is all I can afford) hat in honor of the two generous actors who have been friends for 30 years and counting.


The curtain goes down on Phantom of the Opera after 35 years
September 16th, 2022 under Andrew Lloyd Webber, Broadway. [ Comments: none ]

Did you know that Phantom of the Opera was still playing on Broadway? I didn’t. But it is. However, only for a few more months. That is because it is closing on February 18th, just a few days after its 35th anniversary on January 26th.

That means that Andrew Lloyd Webber has the two longest-running Broadway shows. The other one is Cats.

Personally, I am not a fan of either musical. Webber has had better shows like Jesus Christ Superstar and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and their runs weren’t as long.

Are you sad that Music of the Night is being silenced?


Josh Groban is going to make a killing on Broadway as Sweeney Todd
September 6th, 2022 under Broadway, Josh Groban. [ Comments: none ]

Josh Groban and Annaleigh Ashford are set to serve up a delicious night of horror starting with previews on February 26th. That is because two of them are starring in the revival of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street on Broadway.

Both actors have not worked on the Great White Way since 2017, and I am sure they are going to be welcomed with open arms. That is unless they are going in for a haircut and a meal.

So if you want to really close shave, then tickets go on sale next Friday.


BTWF: Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gillies in 13
July 21st, 2022 under Ariana Grande, Before They Were Famous, Broadway, Dynasty. [ Comments: none ]

Before Ariana Grande and Elizabeth Gillies were Victorious, they were 13. How talented were the 15-year-olds in 2008 on Broadway?
