Bruce Springsteen fans eagerly await ticket information for his gig this fall at Broadway’s Walter Kerr Theatre. I know, because not a day goes by when I don’t hear from them.

About a year ago, Douglas Carter Beane was enjoying a posh lunch with Andrew Lloyd Webber, who asked him what his next project was. Beane smiled and said, “A musical about Robin Hood!” Lloyd Webber nearly choked on his Dover sole. “Good God, it’s cursed — don’t do it!” He then regaled Beane with the...

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 18:33:32 -0400

High on my list of the best musicals of the past 10 years is “Passing Strange,” by songwriters Stew and Heidi Rodewald. It opened on Broadway in 2008, won plenty of critics’ awards and received seven Tony nominations. But despite all the praise, the show never really caught on at the Belasco, running just 165...

It’s only summer, but two Broadway-bound shows are already generating buzz. First, “The Band’s Visit,” a pocket-size musical that won a bunch of awards during last year’s sold-out run at the Atlantic Theater Company.

They were sitting in Mary Tyler Moore’s Manhattan apartment, discussing life and death issues, when they heard a crash.

Gregg Mozgala was born with cerebral palsy; Katy Sullivan, without lower legs.

Since “My Fair Lady” is my favorite musical, I’m looking forward to Lincoln Center Theater’s revival of it next spring. But Lincoln Center and director Bartlett Sher are having some trouble casting it. Colin Firth — the ideal Henry Higgins — has been on everyone’s wish list for years. He was going to do a...

The fallout from Sunday’s Tony Awards was swift and brutal. Two shows that went home empty-handed, “Sweat” and “Six Degrees of Separation,” posted closing notices on Tuesday.
