Patty and Emily discuss the cancelation of The Prince of Egypt concert, and where the production should go from here. They also talk about their revisit to Something Rotten and the new cast members. This week’s theatre stories discussed include Newsies being filmed, a new TKTS booth, and An American in Paris is closing earlier than announced. Plus, more dreamcasts!
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.
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.
