HERE'S WHAT'S NEW:

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!

Broadway Game: The Side Show Twins Game

With and the haze of the Halloween starting to wear off this morning, I thought I'd make up a little game to start the week.  The revival of Side Show is now fully in the throes of previews, so I thought today's mind puzzle should be all about how pairs of Broadway performers are connected!

Below, I've listed pairs of shows currently playing on the Great White Way that are some how connected by the performers currently in them.  Your job is to figure out who is the "Daisy" and who is the "Violet" or how they fit together.  Some are easy (a performer has been in both shows), others a challenge (an actor in each was in a different production together), but remember:  they are all related by the performers currently in them.


Here's are examples:

Side Show - Rock of Ages   Emily Padgett was in both productions. Connection!

Side Show - On the Town  "Daisy": Ryan Silverman "Violet": Elizabeth Stanley.  Their connection: Both were in Cry-Baby together.


Scoring: 

16-13: Say goodbye to the Side Show... you belong on Broadway!
12-9: You are a real Broadway Freak!
8-5: Maybe a few sticks from the Human Pin Cushion would get you into shape!
4-0: Even Sir wouldn't hire you!

Good luck!

1.  A Delicate Balance - The Real Thing

2.  A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder - Wicked

Who is their connection?

3.  Aladdin - The Lion King

4.  Beautiful: The Carole King Musical - Jersey Boys

5.  Cabaret - Hedwig and the Angry Inch

6.  Chicago - Pippin

Who's "Daisy" and Who's "Violet"?

7.  If/Then - On the Town

8.  It's Only a Play - The Country House

9.  Kinky Boots - You Can't Take It With You

10.  Les Miserables - The Book of Mormon

11.  Love Letters - Once

Who is their connection?

12.  Mamma Mia - The Last Ship

13.  Matilda - The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

14.  Motown - Pippin

Who's "Daisy" and Who's "Violet"?

15.  Side Show - Rock of Ages (NOT THE SAME AS THE EXAMPLE)

16.  Cinderella - The Phantom of the Opera

BONUS POINTS: If you can name a connection that involves Disgraced or This Is Our Youth!
