Tragedy at “How to Succeed”, “Broadway Bares” Breaks Records and More Theater News of the Week

June 24th, 2011

Some news briefs from the week in theater; click the links for more info:

  • The Wednesday night performance of How to Succeed was cancelled following the death of a crew member just before curtain. The cause of death is officially still under investigation. Our thoughts go out to the family of the stagehand and to the entire staff and cast of the show as they face the difficult task of moving forward without one of their own.
  • Mauricio Perez.

    A number of shows announced big moves this week: LCT3’s well-reviewed 4000 Miles is getting an Off-Broadway run, the next Frank Wildhorn musical Bonnie & Clyde heads for Broadway this fall and, according to Playbill, the Transport Group hit Lysistrata Jones is rumored to be on the same road to the Great White Way.

  • The amazing Angela Bassett is coming to Broadway opposite Samuel L. Jackson in a play about Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • And, to end on a light note, we have a new theatrical crush: Mauricio Perez. As the lovestruck assistant “Paco” opposite a sweetly gameĀ Joyce DeWitt inĀ Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating & Marriage, Mauricio handles groan-worthy one-liners, drunk audience members and a pair of tight track shorts with charmingly sexy ease. Somebody (or some big show) snap this boy up!
