That puppet genius Julie Taymor is on board
to direct the musical incarnation of Spiderman. She
is in great company since U2's Bono and the Edge will
be penning the music.
It's exciting to have stage veteran Angela
on Broadway at the Music Box Theater in Terrance McNally's Duece. The
former "Murder She Wrote" star is in good company with another
stage vet Marian Seldes. Lansbury, a
four-time Tony winner, hasn't been on Broadway since the 1983
revival of Mame. If you're in New York…get
a ticket since Broadway doesn't get much better than this.
Concert Tickets are hot as well as Broadway theater shows like Jersey Boys
Tickets, Disney's Mary Poppins on
Broadway and classics like Wicked Tickets.
- Brian Friel's The Home Place makes
the jump to the U.S. for its premiere at Minneapolis' Guthrie
Theater on September 28.
- The second incarnation of the over bloated The Lord of the
Rings is currently in previews at the Theatre Royal
Drury Lane. It seems the creative team have shaved off approximately
25 minutes from the version seen in Toronto last year. Let's
hope it's enough to find its audience.
- We are still looking to sign-up all our campers

runs from July 9 - 13 and we will be located
at the Young Centre for the Performing Arts
in the Distillery District….a beautiful
venue for young campers. For an application
hit the Camp
Broadway link on this page and
download….and send along….and
we'll make Camp Broadway history this summer.
- Kitty Carlisle Hart, one of the grande
dames of theatre society recently died at the age of
96. To television viewers of a certain age you may remember
her on "To
Tell The Truth" but this multi talented woman performed on
stage, in film and opera. Ms. Hart was also married
to Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Moss Hart. Her
Broadway career began in Champagne Sec in the 1930s
and continued to perform up to the age of 94 when she performed
nightly in her one-woman show on the history of musical theatre. A
champion of the arts, Ms. Hart served 20 years
on the New York State Council.
