July 7th, 2016 Comments off

The heat is on. Summer is in full swing and Broadway casualties are dropping like a dehydrated groupie waiting in line for Hamilton cancellation tickets. No more Shuffle Along, She Loves Me, Bright Star, American Psycho, The Crucible, or Fully beyond.

Daniel Radcliffe returns to the New York stage in a new play by James Graham that explores our complicated relationship with technology and data through the funny and heart-breaking travails of a lonely guy Radcliffe), who arrives in the city to figure out how to like, tag, and share his life without giving it all away.

This provocative theatrical event will ask audiences to charge their phones, leave them ON during the performance and to embark on a fascinating dive online and into a new reality where we’re all connected… for better or worse.

Jellicle cats come one, come all. Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical 1983 Tony Award-winning musical has been loved and loathed by theatergoers for more than three decades.

Trevor Nunn returns to remount the production with new choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler (based on the original by Gillian Lynne, who reportedly was none to happy about the decision to revisit her work.) Leona Lewis makes her Broadway debut in the role of Grizabella, for which Betty Buckley won a Tony Award. We’ll see how many lives this CATS has.

From Fifth Avenue society to the halls of Congress, their rivalry was relentless and legendary—pushing both women to build international empires in a world dominated by men. Directed by Michael Greif (Rent, Next to Normal).
