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.

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


Tonsilitis rains on Beanie Feldstein’s parade
July 15th, 2022 under Broadway. [ Comments: none ]

It has been an interesting week for Beanie Feldstein. First, she quit Funny Girl on Sunday, the show she is starring in on Broadway, reportedly without telling her bosses. Then on Monday, she was replaced by Lea Michele. Today, she announced that she has tonsilitis and will not be able to perform, at least, through the weekend.

“Hey everybody I’m just checking in. What have I missed? What’s been going on?” Feldstein says. “I’ll start. I just got back from the ears, nose, and throat doctor, who told me that I have tonsillitis, which is extremely contagious and she cannot allow me to go back on the stage through the weekend until I have enough antibiotics in my system to not be contagious anymore.

“The last thing I would want on this earth would be to get the people that I love sick, and I’m just not allowed to go on stage through the weekend. I cannot wait to do my last two weeks, and you just, you gotta laugh at a certain point. When it rains, it pours on your old pal Bean.”

Hopefully, she will be better by Tuesday, so she can go back on stage and sing her out until July 31st.

Before Sadie Sink didn’t know if the sun would come out tomorrow on Stranger Things, she was singing that it would when she starred in Annie. Boy, could the 11-year-old sing in 2013 when she was on Broadway.
