Wednesday September 24. 12:39pm. Here I sit at my desk trying to come up with something to blog about. To be honest I haven't a clue. Sure I guess I could write another blog about how much I love In The Heights or how much I despise Disney on Broadway. Been there. Done That. Maybe I could write about the new shows opening up this season. I guess I could but everybody that has a theatre website or goes on to some theatre message board can do that. Who cares right? Look don't get me wrong. I love the theatre. If I didn't I wouldn't be working for Applause or blogging every day.I guess maybe I'm just bored with the same old crap that we keep seeing on Broadway year after year. I mean do we really need a revival of Bye Bye Birdie or another revival of La Cage aux Folles for that matter. Now I love Neil Simon as much as the next guy. He is one of my favorite playwrights. I would just rather see him write something new. Every year we get three or four great plays that come to Broadway via the West End. That's great and all but it's time to see new plays by American playwrights get more recognition. Yes I know August:Osage County won the Tony and the Pulitzer Prize last year. There are plenty of talented people out there who bust there ass everyday hoping that their life's work will get the recognition that it deserves. Some make it. Some don't. All they need is a chance to show what they can do. Producers spend all this money on expensive sets and flashy costumes. Big deal. People don't spend $120 a ticket to see what somebody is wearing or that people are flying around the stage. Here's a thought. Why not invest your money on a good story and let that speak for itself.
