Thu, 22 Jun 2017 18:51:37 -0400

Ryan Murphy, one of the most powerful producers in Hollywood, may make a run at Broadway. Murphy, the creator of “Glee” and “Feud,” has optioned “The Boys in the Band,” Mart Crowley’s pre-Stonewall play about a group of gay men who gather for a birthday party and some deliciously bitchy banter. The play debuted in...

The director of the controversial production of “Julius Caesar” in Central Park and his family have received death threats at their Brooklyn home, his daughter told The Post. “It’s sexual attacks on my mother — ‘grab her by the p—y,’ raping her — threats on me, and physical threats on my father’s life,” said Kyle...

The wedding was a fairy tale. The marriage was a nightmare. The musical could be a smash. “Diana” is percolating this summer at New York Stage and Film at Vassar College.

Celebs are flocking to see New York’s hottest magic show

After selling out its initial run and attracting a star-studded audience, illusionist Derek DelGaudio’s hot one-man show, “In & of Itself,” has been extended through Sept. 3 at the Daryl Roth Theatre. Its mix of confessional monologue and mind-blowing magic, all coming from a surprisingly unassuming man in a brown suit, has been drawing the...

Amy Schumer is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut in Steve Martin’s new play “Meteor Shower,” theater sources tell The Post. Her co-star is likely to be the lovely Laura Benanti, a Tony winner who’s ridden a wave of popularity for her Melania Trump impersonations on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.” Sources say...

Broadway’s first Tony victims get the axSweat Studio 54

Tue, 13 Jun 2017 21:00:31 -0400

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. Critics praised both shows, but even raves can’t seem to help non-musical plays on Broadway these days. Lynn Nottage’s “Sweat” won the Pulitzer, but that award means diddly...

“Dear Evan Hansen,” an original American musical about a troubled teen caught up in a web of lies on social media, swept the Tonys Sunday night, winning six awards, including Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score.

The best and worst moments of the Tony Awardsplatt

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 00:24:02 -0400

Well, that was a tough act to follow! Last year, the Tony Awards were the hottest ticket in town. Broadway’s biggest night boasted “Hamilton,” James “Carpool Karaoke” Corden and the boffo celebrity attention that clung, barnacle-like, to both. This time, however, the show had far less to work with: A confused Kevin Spacey and eight...

Predicting tonight’s Tony Awards is a fool’s errand, but I’m a fool, so here it goes: Best Musical The race is between “Dear Evan Hansen” and “Come From Away.” Both have champions — and detractors. Those who love “Evan Hansen” say it’s an emotional, original American musical that tackles a topical subject: social media. Critics...

Which Tony nominee is bringing ‘a hip flask full of cabernet’ to the awards?

The Tony Awards are less of a fashion show than a night of song and dance and, if we’re lucky, some heartfelt drama. Here’s how a few of this year’s nominees are gearing up for Sunday’s 8 p.m. show at Radio City Music Hall — and in your living room, on CBS. ANDREW RANNELLS (Featured...

Let’s take a break from the Tonys — my predictions will be in Sunday’s Post, if you can stand the wait — and see what else is happening around Broadway these days. The astonishing success of “Jersey Boys” (worldwide gross: $2 billion and counting) has triggered a run on biomusicals about pop groups and singers....

I went out on a limb last year and predicted a big night for “Hamilton” at the Tony Awards — and did pretty well in the office pool. This year some of the races are so close that, after talking to a dozen Tony voters this week, I have no idea how things are going...

In 1998, a Texas theater student named Michael Urie discovered New York on a class trip. “It was the dead of summer, it was hot and stinky and we saw 13 shows in 10 days,” the “Ugly Betty” star recalls. “I loved everything about it!” A year later, he made it into Juilliard, and has...

The tree was dead, chopped down with two dozen others for the set of Broadway’s “Come From Away.” But a few months ago, something odd happened: That tree began to sprout. From its bark emerged a cluster of tender green shoots. “I got a call from the tech director saying, ‘Hey, look what happened!’” scenic...
