Bette Midler Accepting Her Outer Critics Circle Award: “But you know what? Once I jumped into the pool, it was pretty good.

Bette Midler Accepting Her Outer Critics Circle Award: “But you know what? Once I jumped into the pool, it was pretty good. I was surprised how much fun I had, especially during the rehearsals. I thought the rehearsals were absolutely top-drawer. I loved it. I looked forward to getting up in the morning and going to meet the kids and learning the steps and standing in the rehearsal room with Andy Einhorn, who is our musical director, without whom I could not have survived. And Larry Hochman did fantastic orchestrations. It’s been a steep learning curve. I’m not too nervous in front of you. I don’t know why. I guess it’s because you’re already reviewed the show so I don’t give a shit.” (Playbill, MAY 27, 2017) Read More

Book: The Improv: An Oral History of the Comedy Club that Revolutionized Stand-Up

2017-09-13_3-21-35

It’s no joke to say that our world would be a lot less funny without Budd Friedman!

In 1963, thirty-year-old Friedman—who had recently quit his job as a Boston advertising executive and returned to his hometown of New York to become a theatrical producer—opened a coffee house for Broadway performers called the Improvisation. His goal? Simply to make a living, and if all went according to plan, to also make enough professional contacts to be able to mount his first Broadway show within a year’s time. Read More

Bette Midler Accepting Her Outer Critics Circle Award: “I want to give a shout out to Jerry Zaks, our director, our choreographer, Warren Carlyle, who is absolutely brilliant.

Bette Midler Accepting Her Outer Critics Circle Award: “I want to give a shout out to Jerry Zaks, our director, our choreographer, Warren Carlyle, who is absolutely brilliant. He loves everything I do. He thinks everything I do is genius. ‘Keep it in! Keep it in!’ It’s a very florid performance. I want to thank all the sensational designers involved–even Santo Loquasto, who trussed me up like a Christmas goose. I want to thank Natasha Katz for making me look half my age and Scott Lehrer for his beautiful sound design and, of course, our producer, the mastermind, Scott Rudin, who eventually got me to say yes after many, many, many, many, many months of saying ‘Noooooooo.’” She dropped to a lower register. “‘Noooooooo, thank you.’” (Playbill, MAY 27, 2017) Read More

Broadway Slumps After Banner Summer
September 14, 2017

It’s that time of year again: the kids go back to school, the vacationers return home, and in turn, Broadway show sales decline. The post-Labor Day box office took a huge hit of 15% as city tourism slowed down for the season, with sales down in almost every production.

Last week’s sales for the 27 shows on Broadway were down $4.2 million from the week prior, with a cumulative gross of $23.6 million, as reported by Variety. Attendance fell by more than 17,000, totaling 220,403, or 84% of capacity. After one of its best, most record-breaking summers, this week’s stats marked a six-month low for sales on Broadway.
