Thu, 25 May 2017 23:33:01 -0400

Jujamcyn Theaters is in talks to bring the London National Theatre’s revival of “Angels in America,” starring Nathan Lane , to New York next season, sources say. But what theater will it go to? The hot rumor this week was that Jujamcyn was eyeing the August Wilson, home to “Groundhog Day.” When the show’s producers...

Nothing says power like a woman in a pantsuit. Look where it’s gotten Elizabeth Marvel’s characters: Heather Dunbar nearly toppled Frank Underwood in “House of Cards,” while Elizabeth Keane rules the White House in “Homeland.” Now Marvel’s wearing the pants again, in Shakespeare in the Park’s “Julius Caesar.” Following in the sandals of Charlton Heston,...

On a recent afternoon at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre in Midtown Manhattan, Brendon Urie of Panic! at the Disco is on the verge of collapse. It’s not because of any rock ’n’ roll-related excess. He’s merely rehearsing for his stint as Charlie Price in the Cyndi Lauper-scored musical “Kinky Boots,” which begins Friday and goes...

Hours after most Broadway marquees shut off and Times Square tourists had scarfed down their last slices of Junior’s cheesecake, one play was still chugging along on Thursday night. Or, for squares, Friday morning. “A Doll’s House, Part 2,” a Tony Award nominee for best play, added a midnight performance that didn’t end until 1:30...

#Resistance has never been so posh! On Thursday night, 1,500 mostly liberal theatergoers packed Town Hall in midtown for “All The President’s Men? Scenes From the Senate Confirmation Hearings of President Trump’s Cabinet,” a star-studded staged reading of the Q&A sessions between cabinet appointees and US senators. A better title would have been “Long Day’s...

Spacey doesn’t mind being ‘25th person asked’ to host Tonys

Kevin Spacey, a tennis fanatic, rarely misses the US Open if he can help it. But last fall, as he watched Phil Collins perform at the opening ceremonies at Arthur Ashe Stadium, he had a thought: “Drama happens on this court all the time, and it’s never been used for anything but tennis.” As it...

Let’s give the Tonys a rest for a minute and look to London, where three productions — past, present and future — may be Broadway-bound. Everybody’s talking about Nathan Lane, playing the diabolical Roy Cohn in “Angels in America” at the National Theatre. Critics cheered his performance, and so have some Broadway insiders who went...

Can you win a Tony Award without campaigning? It looks as if Kevin Kline is going to try. Kline, 69, was nominated this week for his portrayal of an aging matinee idol in “Present Laughter” at the St James. He’s up against some first-rate actors — Jefferson Mays (“Oslo”), Corey Hawkins (“Six Degrees of Separation”),...

A night at the opera means great music, a great story — and putting on your finest. We caught up with some operagoers on their way into the Metropolitan Opera House to see “Cyrano de Bergerac” earlier this week to ask how they were putting on the Ritz.

You don’t have to be Jewish to love Yiddish. It’s the only language in the world that has as many words for “stupid” as Alaskans have for snow — a mitzvah in a city that doesn’t suffer schmos gladly. Even a Midwesterner can manage a “mazel tov,” but Yiddish doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue....

Tony nominations are out Tuesday, so let’s read the tea leaves. Producers are gnawing their nails over Best Musical. So many shows, only four (maybe five) slots. “Come From Away” and “Dear Evan Hansen” are in. After that, predict at your peril. I think “Groundhog Day” makes the cut, and probably “War Paint,” although “Natasha,...
