Broadway is bringing back the ABBA musical you never knew existedRaul Esparza and Karen Olivo in CHESS_Photo by Teresa Wood.jpg

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 20:19:38 -0500

I don’t know if the Russians have infiltrated the White House yet, but they were all over the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, last weekend for “Chess.” So what did they think of that maddeningly flawed Broadway musical by Tim Rice and ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, which played just 68 Broadway performances in...

Martha Plimpton’s quirky Presidents Day plans

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 18:49:58 -0500

Martha Plimpton isn’t letting Presidents Day go by quietly. Monday at 7 p.m., the star of film, TV and theater (“Goonies,” “The Good Wife,” “A Delicate Balance”) will salute our commanders in chief with “All the Presidents Mann,” a slate of Aimee Mann songs at Joe’s Pub (PublicTheater.org). “A lot of her music is about...

Jimmy Buffett almost wasted away in ‘Austin, Texasville’

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 19:51:17 -0500

It took Jimmy Buffett just six minutes to write the song on which he built an empire — and a Broadway musical. He was in Austin, Texas, some 40 years ago, visiting a woman he was dating, and “there was the potential for a breakup,” he recalls. After a couple of margaritas and a few...

Bernadette Peters is as good as Bette Midler in ‘Hello Dolly’Dolly1

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 18:55:18 -0500

It’s no mean feat replacing Bette Midler in “Hello, Dolly!” Midler was the No. 1 attraction on Broadway in 2017, racking up weekly grosses of $2.5 million and winning the Tony Award for Best Actress in a Musical. Well, raise your hat, fellows — there’s a new Dolly in Shubert Alley, and she’s tearing the...

‘Three Billboards’ writer is Broadway-boundHANGMEN.Dress.1349.jpg

Thu, 08 Feb 2018 18:57:05 -0500

Martin McDonagh may well win the Oscar for his screenplay for “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.” And now he may also be a contender for a Tony for Best Play — though he’ll have to work some pretty nifty magic to topple Harry Potter. McDonagh’s dark new farce, “Hangmen,” opened at off-Broadway’s Atlantic Theater Company...

‘To Wong Foo’ may be Broadway’s next drag spectacularTO WONG FOO THANKS FOR EVERYTHING JULIE NEWMAR, Patrick Swayze, 1995

Tue, 06 Feb 2018 18:35:06 -0500

It’s hard to outfox a movie studio, but Broadway’s Douglas Carter Beane seems to have done just that. The Tony-nominated playwright has long wanted to turn his 1995 cult movie “To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar” into a musical. Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment produced the movie and Universal Studios distributed it. That would...

New app helps deaf theater-goers hear showsBroadway

Sun, 04 Feb 2018 21:41:06 -0500

Broadway is enlisting an unlikely ally to help make shows accessible to the deaf and hard of hearing — the smartphone. GalaPro, a Tel Aviv-based tech company, has created an app that puts a live closed-captioning system in the pocket of any theater attendee who needs it. To use it, theater-goers need only download the...

Luis Fonsi brought down the house at Clive Davis ’ Grammy party Saturday, performing his infectious hit “Despacito.” I hear that among the VIPs impressed with Fonsi’s vocal chops and stage charisma was Andrew Lloyd Webber, who’s looking for a Judas for NBC’s upcoming broadcast of “Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert.” John Legend will...

Tue, 30 Jan 2018 19:24:26 -0500

The Go-Go’s are on the go-go! Reunited for the first time in years, the ’80s girl group performed to a packed house Monday night at the Bowery Ballroom. It was a kickoff party for their new musical, “Head Over Heels,” which, the Go-Go’s announced from the stage, will begin previews on Broadway in June at...

Patti LuPone and Andrew Lloyd Webber finally bury the hatchetRiedel_Main_Duo1a

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 18:48:41 -0500

One of Broadway’s juiciest, longest-running feuds may have just ended. Andrew Lloyd Webber and Patti LuPone haven’t spoken to each other since the composer fired the diva from “Sunset Boulevard” in 1994. But on Thursday, at the old Hit Factory on West 54th Street, they met to rehearse “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina,” which LuPone...

‘Veep’ co-star: Louis-Dreyfus ‘getting stronger every day’ in cancer battleSecond Stage Theater Cardinal By Greg Pierce Directed By Whorlsky Cast Beck Ann Baker Anna Chlumsky Alex Hurt Adam Pally Stephen Park Eugene Young

Thu, 25 Jan 2018 18:36:49 -0500

When you’re doing Shakespeare, Anna Chlumsky says, you talk in iambic pentameter even when you’re offstage. If you’re on HBO’s “Veep” — one of the most profane shows on TV — you curse. Which is why she’s always reaching for euphemisms when she’s with her young daughters. “I say ‘bullshirt!’ a lot,” confesses the Brooklyn...

James Corden is odds-on favorite to host the TonysThe 70th Annual Tony Awards

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 20:01:06 -0500

CBS is wasting no time lining up a host for this year’s Tony Awards. I hear the offer is out to James Corden, who hosted the telecast to great acclaim in 2016. Sources say the host of “The Late Late Show With James Corden” is likely to accept. The network scrambled to land a host...

Why Broadway’s SpongeBob gave up pizza and boozeSPONGEBOB

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:48:18 -0500

The star of “SpongeBob SquarePants” knows his sponges, in the kitchen and onstage. Just so happens that offstage, he swears by Scrub Daddy. And before Nickelodeon flips out over that unauthorized endorsement, please note that it’s Ethan Slater — Broadway’s SpongeBob — who’s doing the endorsing. “Scrub Daddy was on ‘Shark Tank,’” he tells The...

New ‘Dolly!’ star once played a flying monkey

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 17:37:58 -0500

Just five nights ago, Charlie Stemp was in London, taking his final bow in the holiday pantomime “Dick Whittington” at the Palladium next to West End royalty Elaine Paige. After the curtain fell at 9 p.m., the 24-year-old British charmer raced home, packed his life away and boarded a flight to New York. He was...

‘Pretty Woman’ hooker gets a feminist twist on BroadwayPRETTY WOMAN, Richard Gere, Julia Roberts, 1990.

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 19:37:18 -0500

Even in 2016, Garry Marshall knew that what worked for his 1990 hit film “Pretty Woman” wouldn’t work in a musical. Times had changed, and Vivian and Edward — the characters played by Julia Roberts and Richard Gere — would have to change, too: No longer could a hooker with a heart of gold be...

Can Bryan Cranston be lured back to Broadway for ‘Network’?a_scene_from_network_left_and_onescreen_bryan_cranston._ima.jpg

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 19:18:15 -0500

Bryan Cranston is winning raves as wild-eyed anchorman Howard Beale in the stage adaptation of “Network” at London’s National Theatre. The “Breaking Bad” star was a major box-office draw in Broadway’s 2014 “All the Way,” so it’s no surprise that plans are afoot to bring “Network” to New York. But Cranston may need a little...

When Broadway’s “Jersey Boys” closed up shop last January after a nearly 12-year run, fans were thrilled to hear it would soon return — off-Broadway. But with a smaller stage and budget, would we be getting Frankie Valli and the Three Seasons? Happily, that’s not the case. All four Seasons are present and accounted for...

Sorry, Go-Go’s: My lips are not sealed: “Head Over Heels,” a new musical featuring songs by the ’80s girl band, will open this summer at the Hudson Theatre. Gwyneth Paltrow is producing the $15 million musical with her ex-boyfriend Donovan Leitch. Helping them finance the show will be Jujamcyn Theaters president Jordan Roth. Roth wanted...
