[Broadway Ad Network]

  • The new season is off and running. It's the season to be merry! A new theater season; another opening of another show. Actually, Openings...Shows. From the shows that have opened and those to come, it appears to be another star-studded, blockbuster, audience-pleasing one.

    One of the prime reasons to celebrate is the return of Cherry Jones to the boards after an absence of over four years [Faith Healer and before that her award-winning Doubt] during which she portrayed the president of the United States on Fox-TV's megahit  thriller 24, winning an Emmy Award.


    CJonesMrsWWMcB.jpgThe vehicle is Roundabout's revival of Shaw's scorching tour de force Mrs. Warren's Profession, the story of Kitty Warren, a mother who makes a fortune in an unsavory profession in order to achieve independence for her daughter.

    That role is played to the hilt by Sally Hawkins [Happy Go Lucky film;numerous W.E. credits] in her Bway debut.

    Jones, whom the Times' Ben Brantley noted
    confirms "her reputation as an actress of not only formidable charisma but also meticulous craft" and is "as illuminating as ever," and Hawkins, in an ironic mother/daughter twist, bout it out as two strong-willed women with ideas of their own.

    Towering Ms. Jones makes quite an entrance in magnificently huge Victorian era hats and stunning outfits by five-time Tony winner Catherine Zuber and is beautifully coiffed in fashionable wigs by Tom Watson. There's no doubt that often Ms. Jones seems to be channeling Belle Watling from Gone with the Wind. Doug Hughes, who helmed Doubt, directs.

    What Mrs. Warren does for a living raised hackles of controversy when the play premiered on Bway in 1905. Police closed the production, citing the cast for disorderly conduct. It wasn't critically well-received either. A Times critic termed the play "as elevating as a post-mortem." 

    Mrs. Warren has lots of good company already this season:

    The chaotic and often mindboggling [because of its spin on history] but nonetheless fascinating Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson with hot Benjamin Walker [history just got all sexypants!] as America's first political maverick who made it from the Tennessee frontier to the White House, has moved to the main stem from the Public with its large cast intact. The feisty musical is written and directed by DD and Obie winner Alex Timbers and Obie winner Michael Friedman. 


    Roundabout has U.K. Kneehigh Theatre's hit spin on Noel Coward's classic romance Brief Encounter charming audiences at Studio 54. Adapted and directed by Kneehigh A.D. Emma Rice with a cast of nine, it uniquely combines elements of Coward's intimate screenplay and one act play with song, dance and "Technicolor displays of emotion." It arrives on Bway following sold out runs at Brooklyn's St. Ann's Warehouse, the Guthrie, and S.F.'s ACT.

    Patrick Stewart and T.R. Knight are reliving Mamet's A Life in the Theatre, directed by Neil Pepe. Manhattan Theatre Club has the U.K. import The Pitmen Painters. Laura Linney, Brian d'Arcy James, and Eric Bogosian have returned to their roles in the returned Time Stands Still, with support from Christina Ricci in her Bway debut.  


    Charles Bush has an Off Bway hit with his campfest, The Divine Sister, that's so bad [actually, atrocious] that it's [nearly] drop dead hilarious.

    aaDivinbeComp.jpgIt's crammed with in jokes and so many homages to Julie Andrews/Ingrid Bergman/Joan Crawford/doubting Cherry Jones/Ida Lupino's roadhouse moll/Gloria Swanson/Loretta Young that you lose count.

    Bush bulldozes a mile a second through this romp that really is nunsense - but pretty soon you're rolling along with it and don't really care.

    Nuns wearing lipstick, mascara, and makeup?! Holy crucifix! but let's be thankfully because Divine Sister is saved by its excellent back up - in fact, it doesn't get any better. Julie Halston as Sister Acacius and Alison Fraser as visiting German Sister Walburga in six-inch heels know a thing about comic timing and play their roles to the hilt. There're also three excellent featured turns by Jennifer Van Dyck, Jonathan Walker, and Amy Rutberg.


    You might think October's May with so many shows opening. 

    aaJEJonesVReggrave.jpgMark Rylance, David Hyde Pierce, and Joanna Lumley opened last night in the revival of David Hirson's La Bete, directed by Matthew Warchus. Lombardi follows on the 21st at Circle in the Square; James Earl Jones will be in the driver's seat Driving Miss Daisy Vanessa Redgrave on the 25th in the revival of the Alfred Uhry classic; then there'll be Rain - A Tribute to the Beatles; then Kander and Ebb's The Scottsboro Boys officially uptown on Halloween night.


    aSpider.jpgIt'll be a busy November with LCT's much-anticipated all-star musical adaptation of Pedro Almodovar's Women on the Verge of  Nervous Breakdown, opening the totally-renovated Belasco, by David Yazbeck and Jeffrey Lane and directed by Bartlett Sher and starring Patti LuPone, Laura Benanti, Sherie Rene Scott, Brian Stokes Mitchell, and Danny Burstein.  

    Not far behind will be the move to Bway of the NYSF's acclaimed production of
    The Merchant of Venice co-starring Al Pacino and Lily Rabe. In quick succession comes Long Story ShortThe Pee-Wee Herman Show; and, kicking off the holiday season, Elf; followed by LCT's A Free Man of Color; and Elling.

    December's big event is the much-anticipated, eagerly-awaited most expensive musical in Bway history: Julie Taymor's 
    Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark, with music and lyrics by Bono and the Edge.


    2011 will be no less busy. From January through April, the shows will keep coming: Roundabout's revival of The Importance of Being Earnest; MTC's Good Peoplethe musical adaptation of Priscilla Queen of the Desert; The Book of Mormon; the revivals of How To Succeed ... [marking Daniel Radcliffe's musical debut] and Anything Goes; the musical Catch Me If You Can; LCT's War Horse; Frank Wildhorn's whimsical musical adventure Wonderland: A New Alice; and Alan Menken/Glenn Slater/Douglas Carter Beane's musical adaptation of Sister Act.


    Broadway Cabaret Festival

    One of Fall's most eagerly awaited events, Town Hall and Scott Siegel's Broadway Cabaret Festival returns for its fifth season tonight through Sunday with Broadway Melody Makers, celebrating musical theater's legendary composers, tonight at 8 P.M.; Saturday, 8 P.M., Tony-winning and three-time Grammy nom legend Betty Buckley in concert; and Sunday at 3 P.M. with Broadway Originals, which as its name implies brings back the original stars of Bway musicals.

    Headlining Broadway Melody Makers are Tony winners Michael Cerveris, Judy Kaye, Alice Ripley and Nellie MacKay, Mary Testa, and Tom Wopat. They'll perform tunes by Arlen, Berlin, Coleman, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Styne. Scott Coulter directs with musical direction/arrangements by Ross Patterson, performing with his Little Big Band.

    Betty-Buckley.jpgMiss Buckley will do a concert set of Bway, jazz, and blues. Fans, of course, hope she'll be heavy with Bway, but expect a very ecletic program - Berlin, Rodgers and Hammerstein to Paul Simon and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Expect a lot of emotion in her poignantly-delivered ballads - and tears. Her mini-CD [nine tracks], Bootleg will be on sale.


    News: we may be seeing BB back on Bway. She says the workshop in S.F. of the musical adaptation of Armistead Maupin's Tales of the City [in which she plays Anna Madrigal] went well. They open in November and she hopes the show will be here in 2011.


    Stephanie D'Abruzzo [Avenue Q], Jo Sullivan Loesser [The Most Happy Fella], Christa Moore [Big, Gypsy], Christiane Noll [Ragtime], Maureen Silliman [Shenandoah, I Remember Mama] and John Tartaglia [Avenue Q] will be among the stars reprising songs from their roles in shows. Michele Lee [Seesaw, Bravo Giavonni] directs and will also perform. John Fischer is M.D.

     President Obama Welcomes Broadway Stars

     WETA-TV, Washington's PBS affiliate, will present A Broadway Celebration: In Performance at the White House October 20 at 9 P.M. in a one-hour special taped in July that was hosted by President and First Lady Obama. Nathan Lane emcees the event. Performers include Elaine Stritch, Brian d'Arcy James, Idina Menzel, Audra McDonald, Chad Kimball, Karen Olivo, Tonya Pinkins, and Marvin Hamlisch. 

    aaWhiteHouse.jpgHighlights include Miss Stritch singing "Broadway Baby" and "I'm Still Here," James' rendition of Berlin's "Blue Skies," which he performed in a production of White Christmas, Mendel's "Defying Gravity," Lane and James doing Funny Thing...'s "Free," Kimball in his Memphis showstopper, "Memphis Lives in Me," and Olivo and dancers from the West Side Story revival with "America." The event was produced in association Bway's Margo Lion, with George C. Wolfe as event director. Jerry Mitchell choreographed a number from Hairspray. Rob Berman was music director.  

    President Obama commented, "The story of Broadway is also intertwined with the story of America. Some of the greatest singers and songwriters Broadway has ever known came to this country on a boat with nothing more than an idea in their head and song in their heart. And they succeeded the way that so many immigrants have succeeded - through talent, hard work, and sheer determination.

    "Over the years," the President continued, "musicals have been at the forefront of our social consciousness, challenging stereotypes, shaping our opinions about race and religion, death and disease, power and politics. But, perhaps, the most American part of this truly American art form is its optimism. Broadway music calls us to see the best in ourselves and in the world around us - to believe that no matter how hopeless things may seem, the nice guy can still get the girl, the hero can still triumph over evil, and a brighter day can be waiting just around the bend."

    No, the President did not do his rendition of "Tomorrow" from Annie!

    Of Note


    The late tenor Jerry Hadley was always a joy to behold on and off stage. He not only had a stunning voice that could lift the spirit and a marvelous stage presence but also was one of the most personable artists in the business.

    Hadley.jpgSony/BMG Masterworks Broadway following the digital release of the out-of-print Leonard Bernstein Songbook  has digitally released Hadley's marvelous Golden Days, Tenor Hits from the Golden Age of Operetta album, filled with Friml, Herbert, and Romberg chestnuts. The 18 tracks include the title song [a "duet" with Mario Lanza] and the rousing "Drink, Drink, Drink" from The Student Prince, "I'm Falling in Love with Someone" from Naughty Marietta,  and "The Streets of New York" and "Every Day Is Ladies Day with Me" from The Red Mill.

    Additional tracks are "Neapolitan Love Song" from Princess Pat, "The Song of the Vagabonds" from The Vagabond King, "When I Grow Too Old to Dream" from the film The Night Is Young, and three of the most romantic and lush songs ever "Serenade" from Student Prince, "Softly, As in a Morning Sunrise" from The New Moon, and "One Alone" from The Desert Song

    Poe Revisited

    Direct from is successful run at London's Barbican, 42nd Street's historic New Victory Theater will present from October 29-November 7[Edmonton] Canada's Catalyst Theatre's "deliciously dark dreamscape about master of the macabre" Nevermore: The Imaginary Life and Mysterious Death of Edgar Allan Poe, "a whimsical, chilling musical fairytale for adults" that has also become quite popular with teens. 

    The production, two hours with intermission, is a cross between Grand Guignol and Comedia dell'arte. It contains references to Poe's poems and short stories. It combines true events and fictitious ones.

    "Nevermore takes a childlike openness to discussing Poe's intense life," states Jonathan Christenson, Catalyst's A.D. who directs a cast of eight. "It spends a lot of time on Poe's life as a child, his feelings of alienation, and struggle with identity. 

    "It was actually created for adult audience," he continues, "but touched a nerve with teens. Those that came with their families began telling their friends about it and also returned to see the show multiple times - without their parents!  They talked about Nevermore on Facebook and YouTube."  

    Notes Christenson, "Poe wrote, 'All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.' So Nevermore, while stylist and bizarrely beautiful, is equal parts whimsical and delightfully dark. It's a tale that reveals the psychology of a man whose haunting comic writings continue to resonate in each of our telltale hearts." 

    Nevermore, designed and costumed by Bretta Gerecke with choreography by Laura Krewski, uses haunting song [by Christenson and Wade Staples], poetic storytelling, and surreal imagery to explore the events that shaped Poe's career and ignited his lifelong battle with "visions dark and sinister."  Back home,  won several Best awards including Musical, Director, Score, Choreography, and Costume/Lighting Design.

    A highlight of the run will be World of Poe family workshops on November 6 at 11 A.M. and 4:30 P.M. 

    Nevermore tickets are $28 and $38 and available at the New Victory box office and online at www.newvictory.org, where you will also find showtimes and can access a video preview.


    There's always lots to do in and around Halloween, a very special "holiday" in NYC [that now rings in the Christmas season!] and an opportunity for generally normal, or fairly normal, folks to shake up their inhibited side.

    The big event is Sunday, October 31th's Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, the 38th annual, courtesy of the Village Voice and co-sponsors zipcar and Jeep, among others. Though the route will be shorter this year [due to NYPD restrictions], it will begin to roll and march uptown via Sixth Avenue at 7 P.M. from Spring Street, just below Houston, to West 16th Street. This year's theme is Memento Mori, where "expressions of the dead [are] a reminder that life, despite its hardships, is a gift." There'll be the usual political statements of dissatisfaction from various contingents, giant puppets, bands and other musicmakers, dancers, and a motley cast of thousands of costumed everyday New Yorkers. If you can't be there in person, the Parade will be broadcast on PIX and NY1. For more information, and to make a donation to support this always eagerly-anticipated event that is famous worldwide, visit
    www.halloween-nyc.com. What follows after, especially on such Village streets as Christopher, might be called the Exhibitionists Parade!

    For some daytime fun, there's the Bronx Zoo's Boo at the Zoo fest. The huge array of animals in the vast complex won't be wearing costumes but there will be plenty of focus on the Zoo's creepy inhabitants, which include bats, rats, owls, and snakes. In the trick and treat department, activities will include a magic show, spooky stories, costume parades, musical haunted hayrides, and even some trick or treating. A bit closer to the City is the Central Park Zoo with it's infamous sea lions and polar bears.

    Beginning tonight, through the weekend and the weekends of October 22 and 29th, Coney Island's spanking new Luna Park will be transformed nightly at 5 P.M. into Nights of Horror with rides, "sheer terror, thrills, and chills" that will include a live "haunt." For ticket information, visit www.lunapartknyc.com

    Weekends through October 31st, Six Flags Great Adventure, a 90-minute ride away [in Jackson, NJ] by car or from Port Authority, presents its annual Fright Fest with thrills by day [from all those roller coasters including the jet-propelled rocket cars of the towering Kingda Ka] and chills by night from the ghosts and ghouls surrounding the Fountain of Blood. Visitors are invited to come in costume. There'll be character parades, face-painting, live shows [such as Monster Mash Bash: A Tale of Love at First Fright, Dead Man's Party featuring the Zombie Dancers, and Denny More's Hypnosteria] in addition to special presentations of Six Flag's  dolphin and tiger exhibitions. The children's ride park will also be open.
