2017 Tony Awards Announces Telecast Date

Image result for broadway logoIs it really time for the Tony Awards? O.K. I know. I know. It's still over eight months away. But trust me my friends. It will be here before you know it. It was just announced today that next years Tony Awards will be held on Sunday June 11, 2017.

Of course where they will be held is anyone's guess. Last years awards were held at the Beacon Theatre, due to the fact that it's usual home, Radio City Music Hall, was unavailable due to the New York Spectacular.

In fact during the last twenty years, the show has been at Radio City Music Hall every year, with the exception of 1999,2011, 2012, and 2016. Now I'm very old school. I think the Tony's should be like the old days and be held in a legitimate Broadway house. Unfortunately I don't think that will ever happen again. The eligibility for next years Tony's will be on April 27, with the nominations being announced on May 2. Here's to an exciting Broadway season. Until next time theatre fans.

New Play Oslo To Open On Broadway This Spring

OsloYesterday I posted a blog about Significant Other moving to the Great White Way, following it's critically acclaimed run Off-Broadway. Well wouldn't you know it, but another hit play is doing it too. Oslo, which enjoyed a sold out run this Summer at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theatre at Lincoln Center,will make it's Broadway debut in March 2017.

Thankfully they won't have too far to go, as the show is moving upstairs to the Vivian Beaumont Theatre, which is also housed at Lincoln Center. The show, which is based on the real life 1993 negotiations between the Israeli and Palestinian leaders, will be begin previews on March 23, with opening night scheduled for April 13.

This political thriller by J.T. Rogers, is being directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, Fiddler on the Roof), and will star the original Off-Broadway cast, led by Tony winners Jennifer Ehle and Jefferson Mayes. Tickets for the show are now on sale. Not only that, but we are selling them. Get your tickets to see Oslo on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

New Year's Eve Broadway Schedule Announced

Is it really almost 2017? It seems like only yesterday that I was shoveling out my driveway during New York's record breaking snowstorm in January. Now here we are eight months later and Fall is finally here. That can only mean one thing. The holiday's will be here before you know it. And what better way to ring in the New Year with a Broadway show? Now while none of the shows are playing on New Year's Eve in the evening, there are sixteen shows playing on New Year's Day. Now that's what I call a great way to start the year. Until next time theatre fans.

Off-Broadway Hit Significant Other To Transfer To Broadway In February 2017

Significant OtherThat's right theatre fans. Another critically acclaimed Off-Broadway show is making the jump to Broadway. Significant Other, which opened to rave reviews at the Laura Pels Theatre in May 2015, will begin previews at the Booth Theatre on February 14, 2017, with opening night scheduled for March 2.

So what exactly is the show about? Well I'll tell you. Significant Other tells the story of helpless romantic Jordan Berman, who spends his evenings with his like minded single female friends. However as each of his friends become engaged, he finds himself on the outside looking in, and wonders if he himself will ever find true love.

Sounds like a nice addition to this year's Broadway season don't you think? Tickets for the show are now on sale. Better yet, we are selling them. Get your tickets to see Significant Other on Broadway at the Booth Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

New Musical In Transit To Open On Broadway This Fall

In Transit A couple of days ago I wrote a blog about the upcoming production of Frozen, which is scheduled to open on Broadway in 2018. Now I know what you're thinking. What does Frozen have to do with In Transit? Well for starters it is being written by Kristen-Anderson Lopez, who along with husband Robert Lopez composed the score for Frozen.

Actually that's the only thing it has in common with the show. But I digress. In Transit, which hold on to your hat's, features an a cappella score, will begin previews at the Circle in the Square Theatre on November 10, with opening night scheduled for December 11. Now besides being sans instruments, the show takes place in the greatest city in the world.

Care to guess which one I am talking about? I'll give you a hint. It's nickname is the "Big Apple". That's right. I'm talking about New York City. Oh and one more thing. It takes place on the subway. Hence why the show is called In Transit. Tickets for the show for In Transit are now on sale. Oh but wait. It get's better.

Beginning on November 10 thru February 26, you can get tickets to see the show at some amazing prices. Be advised that while this "Special Offer" is good thru February 27. 2017, it is for select seats and as always subject to availability. Get your tickets to see In Transit on Broadway at the Circle in the Square Theatre. Until next theatre fans.

New Creative Team Announced For Disney's Frozen

Image result for frozen logoBig news theatre fans. Disney's Frozen has found it's new director. According to Michael Riedel of the New York Post, the show is now being helmed by Tony Award winning director Michael Grandage (Red, Evita).

He replaces the previously announced Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher, Rocky), who was let go over the Summer. The show, which is based on the award winning film is set to make it's Broadway debut at the St. James Theatre in 2018.

Now while I may not be the biggest Disney fan in the world, I have no doubt that Frozen will do very well at the box office. Here's hoping the show is more along the lines of The Lion King as opposed to The Little Mermaid or Tarzan. Stay tuned to this blog for future updates about the show. Until next time theatre fans.
