Jeez, nowadays it's hard to find a musical I can dig. This year was Story of My Life and N2N. Now what?

Where are the original musicals. Are we stuck with just these revivals.


They're really not all they're cracked up to be, I promise. Just because musicals are original, doesn't mean they're automatically good. I can think of plenty of sucky original musicals.

Wasn't Blithe Spirit supposed to be (and billed as) Lansbury's last Broadway show?

Not that I'm complaining!

I would seriously fly all the way over to New York just to see this gold.

I'm sure Zeta-Jones' Send in the Clowns will be stunning - even if she is about a decade too young for the role.

Angela and Steeeve sitting in a tree.
And people need to shut up about her being "a decade too young." She's not. Logistically, she's the correct age.

Desiree is described as an 'aging actress'.

The age of a late to early 1900s aging actress ≠ Today's age of an aging actress.

And what, in the early 1900s, was the age in which an actress was classed as 'aging'? [mod edit - no name calling please]

Younger than it is now.
Early 20th Century Lifespan was 30-40 years. So...

Remember, though, age is not a number, it is a state of mind . . .

Anyway, for me it's not Catherine or Angela that makes this production exciting, although they are certainly a plus. For me it's the show itself. I have never had the chance to see it live, let alone live on Broadway. (By the way, did they mention when the show is supposed to open? Maybe I missed something?)

I wonder who else they will get to flesh out the cast. I just a video of Danny Gurwin playing Henrik. Any thoughts?

I doubt Danny would play Henrik again. He just signed a job teaching at my old high school. Not to mention he's approaching 40.
