Carousel On Broadway

CarouselOne of my favorite songwriting teams of all time is Rodger's and Hammerstein. From Oklahoma, to The Sound of Music, they are without question the "Godfather's of Musical Theatre". I mean let's face it. Without them there would be no Andrew Lloyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, or Lin-Manuel Miranda. Now here we are eighty-five years since their first show premiered on the Great White Way, and one of the theatre's most beloved shows of all time is set to return home.

Carousel, which first opened in 1945, is set to begin previews at the Imperial Theatre on February 28, with opening night scheduled for April 12. Now I know what you're thinking. Why does a show that opened seventy-three years ago need six weeks of previews? I mean it's not like they need to do a bunch of rewrites right? Carousel is about as perfect as it gets my friends.

The show, which is being directed by three-time Tony Award winner Jack O'Brien (Hairspray, The Coast of Utopia), and choreographed by New York City Ballet's Resident Choreographer Justin Peck, stars Tony Award winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress). Tony Award nominee Joshua Henry (Shuffle Along, Hamilton), Lindsay Melendez (Godspell, Wicked), and Opera legend Renee Fleming. Now that is what I call an all-star cast. Tickets for the highly anticipated revival are now on sale. Not only that, but we sell them. Get your tickets to see Carousel on Broadway at the Imperial Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Applause Sells All Events Nationwide


Pretty Woman: The Musical
Having been in this business for a long time, I'll admit that the Broadway and London theatre has always been the thing that has kept our industry alive for all these years.

I for one would probably not be sitting at my desk writing about theatre that's for sure.Now while we all know that New York and London are considered the theatre capitols of the world, there are other cities with a thriving theatre scene as well. What cities you ask? Well Chicago for starters.

Image result for chicago theatre logoNot only has every major Broadway show of the last few decades made their way thru the "Windy City", but many of the Great White Way's biggest hits actually got there start in Chicago including Tony winners Kinky Boots, The Producers, Spamalot, and other recent hits like On Your Feet, as well as the upcoming Pretty Woman The Musical.

Quite the track record don't you think? Here's hoping that Miss Vivian and her crew are just as successful. Now let's say theatre is not where your interest's lie.I mean there has got to be a few sports fans out there right? I myself am a huge New York Knicks fan O.K. O.K.

I know I would pick those two if I had a choice. But hey that's me. That's the great thing about the theatre. There is something for everyone.

Broadway's Phantom Celebrates Anniversary

The Phantom of the OperaThat's right theatre fans. Broadway's longest running show is celebrating a birthday. The Phantom of the Opera, which first premiered in London in September 1986, will celebrate it's thirtieth anniversary on January 26. Growing up in a small town in the Midwest, my only exposure to theatre was the shows I starred in during my junior and high school career.

Then my junior year I discovered a musical that would change my life. Now up until that point, the only composers that I was familiar with were Rodgers and Hammerstein and Charles Strouse. So imagine my surprise when I heard the opening chords of the overture. Suffice to say it didn't take very long before I was hooked.

Cut to almost five years later, and I finally got to see the show live and in person. Now I know what you're thinking. Did I love it? You better believe I did. Even all these years later, it still remains one of my favorite theatrical experiences of all time. Here's to another thirty years. Until next time theatre fans.
