TheatreTube: 2nd Sweeney Todd Trailer

27.10.2007

From the SF Bay Area Theatre Blog. OK, the first Sweeney trailer had but a smidge of singing (from “Epiphany”.) this trailer has exactly NO singing. It’s not that I think the trailers are bad. It’s not that I think that people who might go to see a Tim Burton/Johnny Depp collaboration a la Sleepy [...]

News of the Day: 37 Arts, PotO, Maxwell Caulfield

24.10.2007

Is Medieval Times theatre? Hmm … maybe so. Really sucks: 37 Arts, Mikhail Baryshnikov’s foundation headquarters, may be foreclosed on. The “World’s Best Phantom” (otO) is back on stage. Bingo With the Indians is Adam Rapp’s new play. I don’t care what you think, I love me some Maxwell Caulfield, may just have to go [...]

Featured Post: Alexis Soloski brilliantly Bashes Bogart & Mee

22.10.2007

I keep an eye on all things Anne Bogart related, and it’s kind of legendary among us SITI-addicts that she’s only ever received maybe 2 or 3 positive reviews of her work in NYC. That trend continues with Alexis Soloski’s lite-drubbing of Hotel Cassiopeia at BAM (video preview here). Somehow though, Soloski has provided some [...]

Dramaturgy Conference Asks: What the fuck do we do?

21.10.2007

This may be on the wrong side of funny, but it’s pretty good. More comedy from anonymous sources. A near riot broke out at the Midwestern LMDA conference this past weekend when Craig Webster, acting president of LMDA, was stumped by a visiting fifth grader from Montgomery Prep who asked: “So, what is it you [...]

One NYC Stagehand (who has a blog) posted some great food for thought in the comments to my post about the current stagehand/producer conflict on Broadway. Everyone should read it, so I’m pasting it up right here. You are correct when you say that this has been brewing for years. With the large corporations moving [...]

iFirst Time

18.10.2007

Wow, theatre is all over the TV these days. First Legally Blonde makes it onto MTV and soon Walmartopia will be on the new Fox. But the award for coolest (and maybe most) televised exposure (I bet more people see this than watched The Tonys) goes to My First Time, an invention of Altar Boyz [...]
