Beetlejuice the Musical found a new home on Broadway at the Marquis Theater. Performances start April 8, 2022.

Go check it out if you'd be interested. I absolutely loved the show.

Incredible news. The temptation to fly back up to see it again is real. Now we just need to get a pro-shot filmed. Wonder what the cast will look like.

I hope they get as much of the original cast as possible, and WB should have the bright idea to film this for HBO Max when they have a chance since they know the content is relatively evergreen for a Halloween season.

Finally watched The Prom on Netflix. It’s a good time. Definitely not amazing. But the choreography is fantastic and it’s worth it to watch Streep and Kidman absolutely ham it up.

James Corden is really the only major misfire.
He is in every musical he’s in pretty much, though. The best he’s been was probably as The Baker in Into The Woods, especially because he wasn’t trying to play his extremely extra character he seems to have formed on his late night show.

So I know I'm late with it but just finished Come From Away on Apple TV and it definitely brought out the waterworks tonight, especially after the 20th remembrance this past weekend. Beautiful story about the tragedy of that day, but also the beauty of so many people coming together to help one another get through and the hospitality toward so many stranded people. Really glad it was filmed since I haven't been able to go watch it in person.

Yeeeeaaa… didn’t really want to dig into how his performance felt more like “caricature” than “camp.” It made a couple of his scenes more awkward than impactful.

Honestly, as much as I enjoyed Andrew Rannels and Keegan Michael-Key in it, the women greatly outshone the men in every way.

I’ve got a 13 hour flight tomorrow, and I just signed up for BroadwayHD. Expect more reviews when I land.

EDIT - No wifi on military flights! Wooo! So, not as many reviews. I’ll watch a couple of shows before boarding.

BroadwayHD Update - From the SeaTac terminal

Caught a unique pro shoot of “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change” from the UK. The show was the last production I was ever in, so it’s special to me. Simply having a pro shoot of a professional production of the show is great, and the overall production is really good.

Also started watching the pro shoot of “Daddy Long Legs,” a fun show that gets no attention.


Here’s the image of the favorites list I made immediately after signing up. There’s about 50-60 things available at the moment. At this point, I definitely think it’s worth $9 a month until you get through what you want.

EDIT - A flight delay let me finish Daddy Long Legs. A delightful little, two-person show with a period-piece story that hasn’t aged all that well but is still sweet. It’s worth watching just to see Megan McGinnis in a true starring role.

Yeah… BroadwayHD is worth it. I can’t watch it on the plane (the app doesn’t include downloading), but I’m a little excited for quarantine.

Currently obsessed with “The Goes Wrong Show.” Take “The Show That Goes Wrong” or “Noises Off,” turn it into a series where each episode is a different, original show, and it becomes one of the funniest things on television. Only season 1 is on BroadwayHD, with season two announced. But that by itself makes BroadwayHD worth trying for theater fans.

If this is by the “Play That Goes Wrong” team, I’ll absolutely check it out. That play had me absolutely dying in my seat I couldn’t even handle it.

I saw these on Amazon as part of my britbox or acorn subscription, but now appears to be sold under the Broadway hd umbrella. The trial with the tiny court was genius. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. The Christmas episode I watched 3 times. Much recommend.

As good as “A Trial to Watch” is, I think “90 Degrees” and “The Lodge” are my favorites.

I just started watching the Peter Pan special.

EDIT - Season 2 hits next week!
