London Sensation Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Headed To The Great White Way


Harry Potter and the Cursed Child TicketsLet me just start off by saying that I have never read any of the books in the Harry Potter series, nor have I seen any of the movies. I know. I know. What's wrong with me right? What can I say? It's just never interested me I guess. But who cares what I think. The show is going to be a big fat hit. In fact the London production, won a record breaking nine Olivier Awards, including Best Play of the Year. Will lightning strike twice? If I was a betting man I would say a resounding yes. Tickets for the highly anticipated play are set to go on sale on October 12.
 
The show, which is written by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne, and John Tiffany, who also serves as the show’s director, will officially open at the Lyric Theatre on April 22, 2018, with the first preview to be announced at a later date. It was also reported, that the theatre will go under a major renovation, including the removal of five hundred seats, in order to keep the creator’s vision intact. Get your tickets to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child on Broadway at the Lyric Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Tony and Oscar Winner Mark Rylance To Return To Broadway In Farinelli and the King

Image result for farinelli and the king logoOne of this season’s most highly anticipated shows is Farinelli and the King. The show, which stars three-time Tony Award winner and 2016 Academy Award winner Mark Rylance, is set to begin previews at the Belasco Theatre on December 5, with opening night scheduled for December 17.

The show, which first opened at the Shakespeare’s Globe in 2015 prior to it’s sold out run in the West End, is written by Claire van Kampen, AKA Mrs. Mark Rylance, and directed by John Dove.

So what exactly is the show about? Well I’ll tell you. Farinelli and the King, tells the story of King Philippe V of Spain (Mark Rylance), who suffers from insomnia, leaving him bedridden. The queen, whose prior attempts at a solution have failed, discovers Farinelli, a castrato who's angelic voice mesmerizes all who come in contact with it.  However there is only one problem. Will Farinelli, the world renowned singer, give up fortune and fame to remain at the beck and call for Spain’s reigning monarch? I guess you will have to buy a ticket to find out. Tickets for the critically acclaimed new play have been selling like crazy when it was first announced back in May. Get your tickets to see Farinelli and the King on Broadway at the Belasco Theatre. Until next theatre fans.

Broadway Revival Of A Children Of A Lesser God To Open On Broadway in 2018

Image result for children of a lesser god broadway logoI can’t tell you how excited I am to see this show. One of my favorite movies from the 1980’s was Children Of A Lesser God. The film, which was released in 1986, starred Academy Award winner William Hurt, and Marlee Matlin who won the Oscar for Best Actress in her film debut.

Not only that, but the original production which premiered in 1980, won the Tony Award for Best Play. Plus, both of its stars John Rubinstein, and Phyllis Frelich took home Tony’s for their performances as well.

Sounds like this show has some pretty big shoes to fill don’t you think? Thankfully this new production, which stars television and film star Joshua Jackson (The Affair, Dawson’s Creek), and Broadway newcomer Lauren Ridloff, received rave reviews when it opened at the Berkshire Theatre Festival this June.

Previews for the new revival, which is being directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon (A Raisin In The Sun), will begin at Studio 54 on March 22, 2018, with opening night scheduled for April 11. As of now tickets for the show are not on sale. Check back here for future updates. Get your tickets to see Children Of A Lesser God on Broadway at Studio 54. Who knows? You just might see me there. Until next time theatre fans.

Junk To Premier This Fall On Broadway

Junk
Some title huh? I wonder what it could be about? No it’s not set in an old depleted junk yard. Junk, which is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Ayad Akhtar (Disgraced), takes place during the dog eat dog financial world of the 1980’s. The show, which has been described as a mix between a Shakespearean play and recent Academy Award winning film The Big Short, focuses on America and it’s obsession with money and greed.

Sounds like my kind of show. Previews for the show are set to begin at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on Broadway on October 5, with opening night scheduled for November 2. Directed by Tony Award winner Doug Hughes (Doubt), Junk stars Broadway favorite Steven Pasquale (The Bridges of Madison County), as financial wizard Robert Merkin. Get your tickets to see Junk on Broadway at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Bruce Springsteen On Broadway

Image result for springsteen on broadway logoThat's right rock fans. The "Boss" is headed to the Great White Way. Bruce Springsteen, the twenty-time Grammy Award winner will make his Broadway debut this Fall at the Walter Kerr Theatre .And no he is not starring in a revival of Hamlet.

Although who wouldn't pay good money to see that? The show, which is officially being called, "Springsteen On Broadway", will begin performances on October 3, with opening night scheduled for October 12. At the time the show was announced, it was only scheduled to run thru November 26.

However due to high demand and various issues with scalpers, the show was extended until February 3, 2018. That's three months for those of you keeping count. Now while tickets are available for almost every performance, they are not cheap.

Thankfully the theatre is not very big, which means all the seats are good. Get your tickets to see Springsteen On Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre. Do I smell a Tony in Bruce's future? Stranger things have happened. Until next time rock fans.
