Patty & Emily talk to actress Tracee Chimo about the revival of The Heidi Chronicles, now through May 3rd, Wendy Wasserstein, feminism, Sutton Foster, and dog walking. If you haven’t seen her show, see it before it closes! And make sure you see her in whatever she does.
We took a trip to Russia and saw Doctor Zhivago. We really enjoyed this musical that’s a bit of a throwback to the eighties. It stars Tam Mutu, Kelli Barrett, and Paul Nolan.
Patty & Emily saw a million shows this week, including ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore, Nirbhaya, Airline Highway, and the Spring Spectacular! They also went to the Drama Desk Nomination Announcements and talked with Judith Light and Jessie Mueller.
We saw Something Rotten! and had mixed reactions. Who liked what and what didn’t work for who? We did enjoy that cast, which includes Brian d’Arcy James, Christian Borle, Heidi Blickenstaff, John Cariani, Brad Oscar, and Brooks Ashmanskas.
Patty & Emily talk about the shows they’ve seen, including Hand to God, which they forgot to talk about in an earlier episode. They discuss Living on Love, Buzzer, and Seth Sikes at 54 Below. Casting announcements of Little Shop and On Your Feet are discussed, and they interview Brandy, who will be making her Broadway debut in Chicago on April 28th!
We saw the radiant Kelli O’Hara in The King and I at Lincoln Center. It also stars Ken Watanabe, Ruthie Ann Miles, and Ashley Park. We thought it was beautiful!
Patty & Emily sit down to talk to Lesli Margherita about her upcoming 54 Below show All Hail the Queen. They also talk wigs, twitter, and bootlegs. There’s a lot we can all learn from this amazing woman.
We saw Finding Neverland, starring Matthew Morrison, Laura Michelle Kelly, Carolee Carmello, and Kelsey Grammer! What did we think? Do you believe?
Tyne Daly is in a new musical, and we’re talking about it! It Shoulda Been You also stars Sierra Boggess, David Burtka, Harriet Harris, Lisa Howard, Edward Hibbert, Montego Glover, Josh Grisetti, Michael X. Martin, Anne L. Nathan, Nick Spangler, and Chip Zien. Find out what we thought!
We review An American in Paris, the newest Gershwin jukebox musical starring Robert Fairchild, Leanne Cope, Veanne Cox, Jill Paice, Brandon Uranowitz, and Max von Essen. How’d we like this ballet-heavy show?
