Sometimes I feel like that happens in the world of theatre. We hum along, things kind of going at a steady pace. A story here, an announcement there. Stuff is happening, constantly, but every so often it's like a proverbial hail storm of news in the theatre world. I felt like we had a theatre hail storm today.
All kinds of things (and not even Tony related things) seemed to have been announced today. Perhaps they wanted to take advantage of people paying attention because of the Tonys? Who knows. But it was crazy busy today.
Some stuff that particularly caught my eye today?
1.) Jason Robert Brown's musical The Bridges of Madison County is headed to Broadway in February 2014.
3.) The first photos of Lindsay Mendez and Derek Klena as Elphaba and Fiyero in Wicked have been released. I really, really wish I could see this. But I'm always too cheap to pay to see Wicked on Broadway.
