Sequel To Tony Award Winner All The Way To Open On Broadway This Fall

One of my favorite theatrical experiences of the past decade, was seeing Bryan Cranston is his Tony Award winning performance as former President Lyndon B. Johnson in Robert Schenkkan's All The Way.

The show, which also won the 2014 Tony Award for Best Play of the Year, remains one of the finest plays that I have ever seen. Now here we are five years later, and it's sequel The Great Society, is set to begin previews at the Vivian Beaumont Theatre on September for a twelve week run.

Now while All The Way focused on Johnson's presidency following the assassination of JFK, The Great Society takes place following the election of 1964, amid the Vietnam War as well as the Civil Rights Movement. Starring as LBJ in the highly anticipated sequel is Olivier and Emmy Award winner Brian Cox. Quite the replacement don't you think?

Also announced to star along side Mr. Cox is Tony Award nominee Marc Kudish as Richard J. Daley, Emmy Award winner Richard Thomas as Hubert Humphrey, and Grantham Coleman, who is making his Broadway debut as Martin Luther King. As of now no on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.

Pulitzer Prize And Tony Award Winner Tracy Letts New Play Linda Vista To Open On Broadway This Fall

HR - Tracy Letts.jpgOne of my favorite theatrical experiences of all time was seeing the Broadway production of August:Osage County. The show, which premiered at the Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago in 2007, would go on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the Tony Award for Best Play of the Year. Now here we are twelve years later, and playwright Tracy Letts is headed back to Broadway in a brand new play.

Linda Vista, which premiered at the Steppenwolf Thetare in March 2017, is set to begin previews at the Hayes Theatre on September 19, and play thru November 10. So what is the show about? Well according to the shows website, Linda Vista tells the story of fifty year old Wheeler. His marriage is over, his job is mundane, and the best years of his life appear to be behind him.

A move from the cot in his ex-wife’s garage to his own apartment opens up new possibilities for love and sex—complicated, painful and hilarious. Full of opinions, yet short on self-examination, Wheeler must reconcile the man he has become with the man he wants to be. Well I'm sold. As of now no on sale date has been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Get your tickets to see Linda Vista on Broadway at the Hayes Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.

Former Talking Head's Frontman David Byrne Headed To Broadway In American Utopia

Image result for american utopia logoGrowing up in the 80's, one of the most bizarre videos that I ever saw was Once In A Lifetime by The Talking Heads. To a ten year old MTV obsessed kid it was strange to say the least.

Now here we are all these years later and the singer of that new wave rock classic is coming to Broadway. American Utopia, which is based on the 2018 album, is set to begin previews at the Hudson Theatre on October 4, with opening night scheduled for October 20.

Featuring music and lyrics by David Byrne, and direction by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Beetlejuice, Moulin Rouge), American Utopia will play a limited run at Boston's Colonial Theatre from September 11-28. Tickets for the sixteen week engagement are now on sale. Not only that, but we are selling it. Get your tickets to see American Utopia on Broadway at the Hudson Theatre.

Academy Award Winner Marisa Tomei To Return To Broadway In The Rose Tattoo

RoseTattoo.JPGWhat's that? A show by one of my favorite playwrights, starring one of my favorite actors, and it's headed to Broadway? I must be dreaming. The Rose Tattoo, written by Tennessee Williams, is set to return to Broadway this Fall at the American Airlines Theatre.

Starring Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei, and directed by Trip Cullman, the show is scheduled to begin previews on September 19 with opening night to be announced at a later date.

Now I'll admit that while I am a huge Tennessee Williams fan, I am less familiar with The Rose Tattoo than I am with some of his earlier work. I guess that's why I am so excited to see it. All I can tell you is that the play won the 1951 Tony Award for Best Play of the Year. Well that's enough for me.

O.K. I guess I can tell you a little bit more about the show. Set in Mississippi, The Rose Tattoo tells the story of Serafina Delle Rose, an Italian-American widow, who after the death of her husband withdraws from not only her family, but the world around her. Now do you want to see it? Get your tickets to see The Rose Tattoo on Broadway at the American Airlines Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
