Will Hugh Jackman help bring ‘Barnum’ back to Broadway?THE GREATEST SHOWMAN, center: Hugh Jackman as P.T. Barnum, right: Keala Settle, 2017. ph: Niko

Thu, 07 Dec 2017 18:50:59 -0500

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus packed up for good this year — but P.T. Barnum is still the toast of the town, thanks largely to Hugh Jackman. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing him and co-stars Zac Efron and Michelle Williams swinging from a trapeze in “The Greatest Showman,” starring...

Hollywood has finally gotten the memo. Awards season will kick off in earnest when the Golden Globes nominations are announced on Monday, but the main crop of contenders has already become clear: “Lady Bird,” “Call Me by Your Name” and “Get Out” receiving much of the early buzz and nods. What’s so crazy about this...

The ‘SpongeBob’ musical could be a surprise hitSpongeBob SquarePants The Broadway Musical for Everyone

Tue, 05 Dec 2017 20:03:05 -0500

“SpongeBob SquarePants: The Broadway Musical” scrambled aboard a lifeboat Tuesday and it looks as if it could float — at least until the Tony Awards in June. The $20 million musical about colorful creatures under the sea was, many on Broadway thought, headed for that iceberg dead ahead. Advance ticket sales were anemic, and many...

Why Charles Dickens was the Springsteen of his time

Fri, 01 Dec 2017 19:35:58 -0500

One hundred and fifty years ago, Charles Dickens came to America to give the people what they wanted: “A Christmas Carol,” read by the British writer himself. Some 2,500 people at a time clustered into halls in New York, Philadelphia and Boston to see Dickens, the Springsteen of his day, perform his solo show. Given...

Thu, 30 Nov 2017 19:10:13 -0500

James Cameron’s “Titanic” has been rereleased in movie theaters, and Broadway’s getting out its lifeboats as well. A revival of “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” a 1960 musical about a plucky woman who climbed into a lifeboat as the Titanic slipped into the Atlantic Ocean, is headed to Broadway next year, most likely at the Roundabout...

Bikini Bottom has arrived on Broadway. Opening Monday, “SpongeBob SquarePants” boasts songs by John Legend, Cyndi Lauper, David Bowie and other heavy hitters, plus a number by a writing team most have never heard of: Andy Paley and Tom Kenny.

Broadway’s most heartbreaking flop rises from the deadRAGS - An American Musical

Tue, 28 Nov 2017 18:11:35 -0500

A few Broadway misfires, as Ken Mandelbaum called them in “Not Since Carrie: 40 Years of Broadway Musical Flops,” are “heartbreakers and cream”: These are shows that, while fatally flawed, had big ideas, sensational casts and gorgeous scores. At the top of my list is “Rags,” writer Joe Stein’s follow-up to “Fiddler on the Roof.”...

Tina Fey celebrated the opening of “Mean Girls” in Washington, DC, Sunday night with an upbeat but politics-free party at the Atrium at Old Ebbitt Grill. Fey and her producers, “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels and Sonia Friedman, invited close friends but no politicians, left or right. The only politico spotted at the show...

‘Marian’ director shuts down charges of exploitationMarian Seldes, Los Angeles Times, February 3, 2009

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 20:00:18 -0500

“Marian,” a documentary about Marian Seldes that upset many theater people because it shows the actress in the grip of dementia, will be screened on Saturday as part of the Williamsburg Independent Film Festival. I saw the movie on Thursday and, while it is harrowing and heartbreaking, especially for those who knew and admired Seldes,...

Broadway’s new ‘It’ boy is 71 years old

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 16:23:18 -0500

Jerry Zaks is back where he belongs: on Broadway, where no fewer than three of his shows — “Hello, Dolly!”, “A Bronx Tale” and Steve Martin’s “Meteor Shower” — are on the boards. “That I’ve got three shows running in New York at the same time is very sweet,” the 71-year-old director tells The Post...

Call it the battle of those dancing feet: Two acclaimed productions of “42nd Street” may soon go tap-to-tap for a shot at Broadway. The splashy revival at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane won raves from everyone, including the Duchess of Cambridge. At least, Kate Middleton seemed to have a jolly time in the Royal Box...

Like one of the characters in her off-Broadway play, “Stuffed,” Lisa Lampanelli jokes that during her dieting days — all three decades of them — she lost and regained some 300 pounds: “that’s 17 Sarah Jessica Parkers!” But as the comedian tells The Post, “My food issues aren’t the same as everyone else’s.” And so...

“Wikipedia is wrong!” Lucy DeVito says. “I was born in Los Angeles, not New York, but my parents and I would come here a lot, so I feel like a New Yorker.” The oldest of Danny DeVito and Rhea Perlman’s three children finally made it official 10 years ago, when she moved here. Now 34,...

Jimmy Buffett says he was going to be on Broadway one way or another because of his mother. “She was the Southern version of Auntie Mame,” Buffett says, “and she made me audition for ‘South Pacific’ in Mobile, [Ala.,] because she was playing Bloody Mary, and I was supposed to be Emile de Becque’s son....

Last week I wrote about three shows that are trying to slip onto Broadway stages before the Tony cutoff date in April: “The Honeymooners,” “Summer: The Donna Summer Musical” and “Hadestown.” Producer Michael Cohl, my old sparring partner on “Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark,” e-mailed to remind me of another musical, one that may well...

Elton John cameos in ‘The Lion King’ on Broadway

Tue, 07 Nov 2017 12:46:05 -0500

For Elton John, everything comes full circle. On Sunday night, the venerable music man surprised a Broadway audience for “The Lion King’s” 20th anniversary performance. John joined the cast onstage after the show to sing his hit song “Circle of Life,” which he co-wrote for the 1994 Disney movie. Simba would surely approve.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s totally unbiased son reviews ‘Hamilton’

Mon, 06 Nov 2017 14:17:54 -0500

Tonys, Shmonys: Your musical’s only as good as your kid says it is. Luckily, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s son just gave “Hamilton” a big (little) thumbs up. From his perch atop two booster seats, Sebastian Miranda, who turns 3 on Nov. 10, took in Act 1 of his father’s show on Saturday. As he watched the stage,...
