HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

Summertime...Took a little vacation! Three reviews coming soon! Amazing Grace, Hand to God and Mamma Mia!

I hope you'll come back for frequent visits, to see new reviews, to share opinions, to take a survey (or two), and to celebrate the shows and show people that have made the TheatreScene!

TheatreScene: November 21 - 27

BROADWAY QUESTION OF THE WEEK


So, readers, what do you think about the new pricing schedule about to be implemented by The Book of Mormon?  Click HERE for the details, then take a minute to let me know what you think.  Add a comment  at the end of today's blog or email me at jkstheatrescene@yahoo.com!




BROADWAY VIDEO OF THE WEEK




What will probably be the only record of Stephanie J. Block's performance in Anything Goes, it is a shame that it showed only on CBS's presentation of the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, which is cheesy and no one watches.  Credit, too, to the dazzling Colin Donnell for rising above and being suave and sophisticated on a New York City roof top.

ASK JEFF...


Jeff,

I enjoyed your annual Thanksgiving blog very much.  But how could you have left out your friend Mike on your "thankful for" list?  He goes to all the shows with you and even writes for you sometimes.  Those of us who follow your blog regularly look forward to hearing about and from him.  I am thankful for him. You should be too!

A loyal reader and fan of BOTH Jeff and Mike

Dear Loyal Reader...


Why thank you!  And I am sure Mike thanks you, too.  Mike knows he's on my "thankful for" list every day, not just at Thanksgiving.  He's the best theatre companion and friend ever.  And no worries... you'll be hearing from him soon!  The American Idiot tour starts up in less than a month.


I hope you and yours have a wonderful holiday season.  And you are on my "thankful for" list now, too!


Jeff

GOOD NEWS ON BROADWAY THIS WEEK



  • Today is the last day of the first half of the 2011 - 2012 season.  And in this economy, it is nice to report something good about money and industry.  God's Favorite Musical, The Book of Mormon, currently has a $39M advance sale.  Good for them!
  • I know people half her age that would still be out of work, and yet 67 year old Stockard Channing is back doing her Thespian duties in Other Desert Cities a mere 5 days after knee surgery!  She's taking off the next two matinees, but still that's six shows.  You rock, Stockard!
