Patty & Emily lament missing Ragtime on Ellis Island, but look forward to whatever the future is for this production. And Emily looks forward to seeing Grey Gardens this week. They go over the stories of the week, including Alex Timbers departing Frozen, Lesli Margherita returning to Matilda, Miss Saigon, and Hairspray Live! casting. Also, is there a conspiracy or is it coincidence that Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth are releasing albums on the same day?
Patty & Emily talk about Blood Brothers at 54 Below and She Loves Me, which unfortunately won’t be getting a video review. They talk about the new cast of Hamilton, which they’ll never get to see and the cast of Hairspray Live! It was a tough week personally and in America. Black lives matter.
Patty & Emily talk The King and I: from Ann Sanders history-making performance to Marin Mazzie replacing. Patty convinces Emily to give The Humans a try, and they discuss Hairspray Live, Paper Mill’s next season, the Drama Book Shop, and Nerds casting. Plus, who is the new Tweet of the Week?!
