First Broadway Revival Of Six Degrees Of Separation To Open Next Spring

SixDegreesPoster.jpgExciting news theatre fans. One of the theatre's most critically acclaimed plays is headed back to Broadway for the first time in over twenty-five years. Six Degrees of Separation, which premiered Off-Broadway in 1990, will begin previews at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre on April 15, 2017, with opening night set for April 25. The limited engagement, which stars Emmy winner Allison Janney and Tony winner John Benjamin Hickey, is scheduled to run thru July 16.

Now unfortunately I never got the chance to see the show during it's original production. I have however read the play many times, and saw the 1993 film which starred Stockard Channing in her Oscar nominated performance. Now here we are all these years later and the show is set to return to the Great White Way. I for one can't wait to see it. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the play, it takes place in New York City at the home of art dealer Flan Kittredge and his wife Ouisa.

One evening they are visited by a young man by the name of Paul, who claims to have not only been injured from an attempted mugging, but is also a fellow classmate of their children at Harvard University. Not only that but he is also the son of Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier. All of which turns out not to be true.

The Kittredge's soon find out that they are not the only one of their friend's to fall for this young con artist. Now I could tell you more. But why ruin it for you? I guess you'll just have to see the show to find out how it all turns out. Thankfully you won't have to wait to long. Tickets for the show are now on sale. Not only that but we are selling them. Get your tickets to see Six Degrees Of Separation on Broadway at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. Who knows? You might just see me there. Until next time theatre fans.

What To See In The West End

Image result for london theatre district picsHeading to "Merry Old England" in the coming months? Well of course you are going to see a show or two while you are there right? Right. As we speak there are over ninety plays and musicals playing in the West End. The only questions is which ones do you see? Here's a thought. Why not see all of them? Just kidding of course.

I mean I love going to the theatre. But even I couldn't see that many shows. So what do you see? Well London is home to a little known playwright by the name of William Shakespeare. I know. I know. Everybody knows Shakespeare. In fact he has six different plays currently playing in London. Here is a list of those plays.

As You Like It,
Hamlet
King Lear
Love Labours Lost
Much Ado About Nothing
The Taming of the Shrew

But what if Shakespeare is not your cup of tea? How about a good old fashioned musical? Thankfully London is full of them. Here is a list of just a few of them for you to check out.

42nd Street
An American In Paris
Dreamgirls
In The Heights
Les Miserables
Mamma Mia
Motown The Musical
Ragtime
Stepping Out

Now I know what you're thinking. There has to be more musicals than that right? That is true. However I only listed the ones that are playing exclusively in London. Oh sure you could go see The Phantom of the Opera or Wicked if you wanted too. But you can also see both of those on Broadway as well.

Now what if neither musicals or play's are your thing? How about the Opera or maybe even the ballet? Plus did you know that London has their own Christmas Spectacular? I didn't. Although this one is more of a concert, as opposed to the huge production that has been playing at the Radio City Christmas Spectacular for the past eighty-three years.

That's what makes theatre so great after all. So many choices. Oh and one more thing I forgot to mention. We sell everyone of those shows that I mentioned, plus every other show and event in London. Who knew? So what not give us a try? You'll be glad you did. Until next time theater fans.

Tickets For New Musical Amélie Are Now Available

Amelie_Key_Art_HRA couple of weeks ago, I posted a blog about the new musical Amélie coming to Broadway. In the blog I mentioned that we would be selling tickets for the show as soon as it went on sale. Well theatre fans that day has finally arrived.

The show, which is set to begin previews at the Walter Kerr Theatre on March 9, 2017, and open on April 3, is based on the 2001 French film. Now for those of you that are not familiar with the Walter Kerr Theatre, it is one of Broadway's smallest houses.

Therefore I think it will be perfect for such an intimate show like Amélie. That also means that there is not a bad seat in the house. How many theatres can say that? Get your tickets to see Amélie on Broadway at the Walter Kerr Theatre. I can't wait to see it. Until next time theatre fans.

Broadway's The Phantom Of The Opera Celebrates Milestone

Wait a minute. The Phantom of the Opera is still playing on Broadway? It sure is theatre fans. In fact in January, the show will celebrate it's twenty-ninth year on the Great White Way. Not only that, but tonight the show will play it's 12,000 performance on Broadway. Pretty impressive don't you think?

When I first moved here, the show was in it's fifth year. Now while I loved the show, I never expected to still be writing about it all these years later. Yet here we are twenty-five years later, and the show is still playing to packed houses eight times a week. Congrats to you Phantom. You deserve it. Until next time theatre fans.
