  1. In honor of season 3 of “Orange is the New Black”, I thought it would be fun to create (and get your input on) a dream cast!

    Piper: Annaleigh Ashford or Betsy Wolfe
    Alex: Krysta Rodriguez or Lena Hall
    Red: Faith Prince
    Crazy Eyes: Uzo Aduba
    Taystee: Danielle Brooks
    Big Boo: Lea DeLaria
    Larry: Jason Biggs (If he can sing)
    Morello: Sierra Boggess
    Nichols: ?
    Vee: Lachanze?

    There are so many characters in the show, so I just did these few off the top of my head. Feel free to add to the list and critique!

  2. I have no idea what your schedule is, but I highly highly recommend you see 10 out of 12 by Anne Washburn at Soho Rep. It takes place during a tech rehearsal for a play and it’s about all the mundane and awkward things that go on in tech. Every audience member is given an earpiece and radio receiver that lets you listen in on the crew talking backstage and the interplay between the audio and what you see on stage is fucking brilliant. I have no idea if you guys would ultimately like the show or not, but I think it’s worth seeing just for its ambition. I adore it.

  3. Now that I finally saw Fun Home a few months ago, I’m so happy it won the Tony. I cry at a lot of shows but I really cried at Fun Home in a completely genuine way that I wasn’t manipulated into. It was beautiful and heartbreaking and wonderful.

    I really enjoyed Ever After. I’m a big fan of the movie so that helped since they lifted entire passages of dialogue straight from the script. But it was also terribly charming. James Snyder was great. Christine Ebersole was great even though I didn’t like her songs. Mara Davi was good. Margo Seibert was a bit uneven but generally good. Tony Sheldon was adorable. I loved the gypsy dance number. I think it still needs to be smoothed out but if they can get it to that place, it would work really well in high schools in the vein of Once Upon a Mattress. Right now it has a split personality with a light children’s theatre side and then all these somber, overwrought ballads that don’t really amount to much. I did like the costumes but I didn’t love them as much as you guys. I still prefer the movie costumes.

    Your Tom Hewitt interview was fantastic. I wish he was doing this upcoming 54 Sings Kiss Me Kate show with Lesli Margherita.
