DENVER — Disney is opening its Broadway-bound “Frozen” Thursday night to a sea of Elsas. Easily one-third of the audience for the last month of previews has arrived in long blue gowns and blond wigs with braided ponytails. Most are young girls, to be sure, but Elsa touches all ages. Grown women show up wearing...

Tue, 12 Sep 2017 18:08:03 -0400

Prospective backers for the upcoming revivals of “Angels in America” and “M. Butterfly” are getting sticker shock when they see the price tags. These are big, bold and potentially thrilling productions, but cheap they’re not. “Angels,” a transfer from London’s National Theatre, is coming in at about $7.5 million; “Butterfly,” directed by Julie Taymor, at...

How Trump’s tweets will shape Uma Thurman’s upcoming Broadway showTHE PARISIAN WOMAN Uma and Josh_1061c.jpg

Thu, 07 Sep 2017 18:33:49 -0400

President Frank Underwood called me the other day to tell me about a play that I haven’t been paying much attention to: “The Parisian Woman.” It’s a terrible title, but when FU calls, you listen. If you don’t, you may find yourself on the subway tracks. Beau Willimon, who created Underwood and his show “House...

These British shows could be breakout Broadway hits06E.Riedel1

Tue, 05 Sep 2017 18:37:54 -0400

The big shows for the new theater season are set. We’ll be singing “Let It Go” from “Frozen,” toasting the wit of Tina Fey in “Mean Girls,” enjoying the charms of “The Band’s Visit,” and hoping “SpongeBob SquarePants” is subversive enough to make it more than a kiddie show. But what’s fun about covering Broadway...

Thu, 31 Aug 2017 20:11:42 -0400

Put aside the politics, the polemics and the president. Michael Moore, nestled into a booth at a bar in the theater district, wants to talk about something else: his lifelong love affair with New York City and Broadway.

“All the world’s a stage,” said Shakespeare. And he was right: His own work’s headed to four Hell’s Kitchen bars and a Brooklyn recycling center. Theaters are so 16th century. In the next several weeks, you’ll find Shakespeare, Chekhov and more surfacing in places you’d never dreamed possible. Not only that: You’ll pay a lot...

Jerry Lewis’ dislike for Lynn Redgrave nearly ruined his stage career

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 17:45:56 -0400

Jerry Lewis, who died this week at 91, scored in just about every branch of show business: nightclubs, radio, television, concerts, movies and records. But it was only relatively late in life that he tried his hand at a Broadway musical. When he did, he became the only actor sued for refusing “to rehearse adequately...

It will take more than a solar eclipse to overshadow Tommy Tune, the 6-foot-6, 10-time Tony winner. Texas born and bred, his high-school graduation gift was a trip to New York: “I stayed at the Algonquin Hotel and got into the elevator, and there was Anna May Wong and Milton Berle!

Despite its seven Tony nominations, the musical will close Sept. 17 after just 176 performances, The Post has learned. “Groundhog Day” is the second high-profile Broadway show to collapse in...
