Richard Bean's One Man, Two Guvnors won Corden a Tony. What will his new comedy do for Max Gordon Moore? --- Richard Bean's new Broadway romp The Nap at Manhattan Theatre Club is set in the world of British snooker -- it's like pool, but with more math. A major televised attraction in the U.K., the sport makes rock stars of its champions; it's also...

Although the 2018-2019 Broadway season officially began when The Boys in the Band opened back in June, it kicks into high gear this fall with 15 new productions bowing on the boards. (We've also included two that opened over the summer and are still running.) As usual, autumn is play heavy, with lauded London imports such as Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman...

The theatre is not your shower or a karaoke bar --- Has this ever happened to you at a Broadway musical? House lights dim, stage lights go up, actors begin singing the opening number… and so does the audience? Personally I find this trend disheartening, and it seems to get worse every season. As an avid theatregoer, I pay top dollar to hear...

In defense of musical theatre lyrics with imperfect rhymes I'm a hard-core musical theatre nerd and I don't understand why so many people gripe about lyrics featuring imperfect rhymes. They don't bother me. In fact, I sometimes prefer them since they're more surprising than perfect rhymes such as love and dove (yawn). Imperfect rhymes work especially...

One theatre lover reflects on the impact other audience members have on his experiences --- Usually, I wait to criticize a show until after I've left the theatre. But I once loathed a production so much, my verbal abuse slipped out mid-performance. It was under my breath, but my words were pointed: "End this show. End it now!" That kind of experience...

Tony nominee Orfeh returns to Broadway as another sexy sidekick --- When director-choreographer Jerry Mitchell needed to cast the brassy, belting bestie in Broadway's Pretty Woman: The Musical, the two-time Tony winner knew exactly who to call: Orfeh. The last time Mitchell directed the mononymous actress, she earned a Tony nomination as the feisty...

A black theatre fan argues that certain white roles shouldn't be played by actors of color --- I've loved musical theatre as long as I can remember. When I was young, I would listen to my original cast recordings of Oklahoma and Candide and My Fair Lady over and over and over, and imagine myself as Curly McLain and Candide and Henry Higgins. But my...
