Patty & Emily discuss two more closings: Tuck Everlasting and American Psycho. They also talk about all the castings announced this week, including Holiday Inn, Cats, Something Rotten, and Runaways. But mostly they talk about Ken Davenport, why you shouldn’t donate to the Spring Awakening Kickstarter, and what you should do instead.
Patty & Emily talk about Emily’s trip to Chicago, where she saw Kate Baldwin in The King and I and Mary Page Marlowe. And there were a ton of little news items this week, including Sara Ramirez leaving Grey’s Anatomy, Sutton Foster in Sweet Charity, David Hyde Pierce in Hello, Dolly!, and Barbra’s new tour!
Patty & Emily talk about Broadway’s baby fever, what with Audra and Annaleigh’s pregnancies and Waitress and Bright Star.

Patty & Emily discuss their Mother’s Day activities, including Bright Star and Theater People’s Summer Series with Lesli Margherita. They also talk Tony nominations and mourn the loss of The Good Wife and Disaster!. But there is much praise for Jennifer Simard and Faith Prince. Playbill continues to baffle with their list of upcoming movie musical adaptations, and Audra keeps it classy.
Patty & Emily talk The Robber Bridegroom and Leslie Kritzer’s award-winning performance, show taglines, and cast recordings. They also talk casting changes for She Loves Me and Disaster! and Shuffle Along news. And Liza has not, and never will be, on Twitter.
