Hello lovlies! I’m in NYC for a few days, and have a full theatre schedule lined up, featuring some of Broadway brightest divas: Sutton Foster, Betty Buckley and Bernadette Peters.
Last night: Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Anything Goes. Overall, lots of fun and Sutton is swell — but, for me, the true star of the show is John McMartin. The guy knows how to steal a scene. Really tacky sound design, however. From my third row seat, the orchestra — only six feet away in the pit — sounded like it was being piped in from another room on tinny speakers.
Tonight: Betty Buckley’s new one woman show, Ah Men! The Boys of Broadway, at Feinstein’s. I have very fond memories of the last time I saw Buckley at this classy and cozy venue (in 2008), and I’m looking forward to repeating them. (But without the penthouse Park Avenue view this time, alas, alack)
I’ll report back on all!
