Time for that monthly summary of what got your attention last month here at The Producer’s Perspective

And . . .

I’d hate to see the drama blow up into something which could lose the integrity with which we try to keep it classy in the theater, but if it could stay in the realms of fun-for-the-viewer, (example: a youtube video of the casts of Once and Newsies battling it off in West Side Story dance-fight fashion) it could build anticipation leading into Tony week.

PS – I for one would love to see a “Tony Week” full of events all over the place leading up to the awards ceremony.

    Ok, so I love Weaver’s suggestion for a “Tony Week”! However, I am writing to you about a new issue. Last weekend, I went to see the show “Once” for my second time. I had been raving about it for a year and couldn’t wait to see it again. I was immediately disappointed by the recasting of the lead roles and was apprehensive about the show living up to my memory. Unfortunately, with these new performers, the magic is undeniably gone. I cannot believe after winning the Tony only a year ago, that they would allow it to stray so far from the original. The performances were not even close to the originals. The show lost its realism and I was constantly reminded of the choreography and the stage acting and the singing (although very nice), was no longer raw, passionate and heart wrenching. What a huge disappointment! How can a play prevent something like this from happening? How could they have gotten it so wrong?
