Well, my "little vacation" ended up lasting two and a half years... funny how life steers your life in directions you weren't planning on. I'll start off with occasional posts, but I fully plan to resume this blog to full speed by the new year.

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!

UPDATE: Your Disappointments... and Favorite Broadway Couples

Well, I asked, and you answered... A LOT of you answered!  Thanks!  Recently, I posted two blogs: one about favorite Broadway couples, real-life and in shows (HERE), and the other about shows being disappointments after hearing all the hype surrounding them (HERE).  Several of you emailed and Tweeted about your favorites, and here are some of the most popular responses:


Some classics you mentioned:

  • Anna and the King (The King and I)
  • Nathan Detroit and Miss Adelaide (Guys and Dolls)

  • Marian Paroo and Harold Hill (The Music Man)
  • Danny Zuko and Sandy Dumbrowski (Grease)
  • Nellie Forbush and Emile de Becque (South Pacific)

Some more modern couples you mentioned - The Top 5:

5.  Raoul and Christine Daae  (The Phantom of the Opera) (The Phantom and Christine got some votes, too.)

4.  Boy and Molly (Peter and the Starcatcher)

3.  Princeton and Kate Monster (Avenue Q)

2.  Elphaba and Fiyero (Wicked)

1.  Marius and Cosette (Les Miserables) (Marius and Eponine got a few votes, too.)

@BBwithPickles: The revival of A Chorus Line "uninspired, boring and drawn out"

@kevinddaly: Clybourne Park "I expected to be wowed, instead I was let-down and a bit bored."
(@ydavey and @tapeworthy agreed)

@TwoShow Days: "Priscilla & Kinky Boots were both extremely tame for shows about drag queens. And the acclaimed War Horse bored me."

@mrtylermartins: "Definitely Golden Boy"

Some of you asked what current shows disappointed me. Hmmm... Big Fish and Jersey Boys for sure!

Keep sending in your choices for future blogs!
