Broadway Breaking News, Sneak Peeks, Book of Mormon & More!

June 17th, 2011

It’s time for another round-up of the week in theater news:

  • It may not have Hugh, but the Arena Stage production of Oklahoma took DC by (dustbowl) storm last year. Now you can get free tickets to opening night of its return engagement by “liking” their Facebook page.  Hmmm, that sounds familiar

  • Photo by Joan Marcus.

    The star-studded revival of The House of Blue Leaves will be closing early on Saturday, June 25th. Originally intended for a 16 week run, the production, directed by David Cromer and featuring Ben Stiller, Edie Falco and Jennifer Jason Leigh, will have played 72 regular performances.

  • Did I just see Babe fly past my window? Well, something is in the air because Ben Brantley wrote about the Tony telecast with almost innocent warmth and familial goodwill. It’s a must read…and not just because I couldn’t agree more with his take on the Oscars vs the Tonys.
  • Speaking of Tonys, Kathleen Marshall (director of the recently crowned Best Revival Anything Goes) will be directing a “new” Gershwin musical Nice Work If You Can Get It in the Spring of 2012. It would seem that you need multiple trophies to join the fun because her leading man is two-time Tony-winner Matthew Broderick.
