With Mamma Mia and Priscilla Queen of the Dessert showing off their mirrored balls eight shows a week, it would seem that Broadway is safe for Disco again. I hear you music theater purists out there scoffing, “Sondheim wouldn’t approve. This isn’t R & H. Patti LuPone would weep.”

Thank God it’s a Friday theater news update!
