Slava's Snowshow To Return To Broadway This November

Working in the industry that I am in, we often get invited to a majority of the new shows. That way when people call us wanting to know what we think about the show, we can give them our honest opinion.Which brings me to today's blog. In December 2008, our staff was invited to a new show called Slava's Snowshow.

Now at the time, all I knew about the show was that it had premiered in Moscow in 1993, prior to a worldwide tour, including a very successful production Off-Broadway, that played for over a thousand performances. It also won the 1998 Olivier Award for Best Entertainment, the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Unique Theatrical Experience, and was nominated in 2009 for Best Special Theatrical Event, losing to EGOT winner Liza Minnelli.

Created and staged by Slava Polunin, who has been called one of the world's greatest clowns, Slava's Snowshow will begin previews at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre on November 11, and play thru January 5.Now for those of you who want tickets to see the show, you are in luck. We sell it.Oh and just in case you were wondering, I loved the show. Get your tickets to see Slava's Snowshow on Broadway at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Bob Dylan Musical Girl From The North Country To Open on Broadway In 2020

Girl from the North Country (musical).jpgIn the Fall of 2006, I saw a new musical based on the music of Bob Dylan called "The Times They Are a-Changin'. Now to be honest, I was really looking forward to it as the show's director Tony Award winner Twyla Tharp, was also the director and creator of Movin Out.

I loved that show. Of course it also helped that the show featured the music of my favorite songwriter Grammy and Tony Award winner Billy Joel. Now while I think Bob Dylan is one of the greatest songwriter's of all time, the story was not the greatest.

Plus being a writer myself, if the book is weak, it can really effect the show. No matter how great the music. Having said that, I am looking forward to seeing the latest Bob Dylan musical. Featuring direction and a book by Tony Award nominee and Olivier Award winner Conor McPherson (The Weir, The Seafarer), and over twenty classic Bob Dylan songs including "Like A Rolling Stone", "Make You Feel My Love", "Hurricane", "Forever Young", "Jokerman", Girl From The North Country is scheduled to begin previews at the Belasco Theatre on February 7, 2020, with opening night set for March 5.

Set in Duluth, Minnesota, during the height of the Great Depression, Girl From The North Country, tells the tale of the Laine family, owners of the local guesthouse, who's future is being threatened with foreclosure by the bank. An on sale date for tickets has yet to be announced. Be sure to check this website for future updates. Get your tickets to see Girl From The North Country on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

New Play The Sound Inside Starring Mary-Louise Parker To Open This Fall

The Sound InsideIn November 2003, I was at a major crossroads in my life. My job as a customer service supervisor was eliminated, and for the first time in a decade I was unemployed. My first thought was to find another job in my field. However, I decided that the time was now to take a little break from customer service to pursue another dream of mine. Also it helped that I had a few dollars in the bank to make that dream come true.

So I know what you're wondering? What does all of this have to do with today's blog? Well as it turns out, my dream was to work on a film. And luckily for me, I knew someone that could help with that. Less than a week after losing my job, I was in New Jersey working as a production assistant on the same set as Academy Award nominee Ed Harris, Zooey Deschanel, and Will Farrell. The movie? Winter Passing.

The writer and director? Adam Rapp. Who just happens to be the writer for The Sound Inside. O.K. O.K. enough about me and my dream job. The play, which mark's Mr. Rapp's Broadway debut, is set to begin previews at Studio 54 on September 14, with opening night scheduled for October 17. So what is The Sound Inside all about? Well I'll tell you. The Sound Inside, stars Ms. Parker as Yale professor and fiction writer Bella Baird, who while mentoring a gifted young writer, finds herself in a losing battle with cancer. Starring along side Tony and Emmy Award winner Mary-Louise Parker along side Will Hochman, who is making his Broadway debut.

The show, which is being directed by Tony Award winner David Cromer (The Band's Visit), premiered in 2018 at the Williamstown Theatre Festival, where it received outstanding reviews. Here's hoping the Broadway production is just as successful. By the way, for those of you who want tickets to see The Sound Inside, you have come to the right place. We sell it.
