Curtains Up

Fall Broadway Preview: The Good, The Gay And Godspell


There are 18 (and counting) shows opening on Broadway between now and January. And show-tune queens can rejoice: of these, seven are musicals, including four revivals, two all-new works and one revue.

We’ll have to wait for 2012 for the highly anticipated revivals of Evita (with Ricky Martin) and Funny Girl (with Lauren Ambrose) but here’s a look at some of the hottest—and queerest—tickets on the Great White Way in what’s left of 2011.

UP FIRST: Follies!

    “Arguably one of the most important musicals in American history”????????

    It’s a fucking OPERA, not a musical.
    THAT is why it’s getting such horrid press and reviews.
    The producers/director have the gall to alter what is already a perfect piece of classical music-theater. THAT is why it is causing so much “outrage”.

    If you don’t understand the difference between a musical and an opera, then you shouldn’t bother reporting on them.

    Broadway is an overpriced bore these days.

    Grant Shaud was on MURPHY BROWN, not MELROSE PLACE. Sheesh.

  • Chopsie

    GODSPELL? Blecch… The most annoying Xian BS I ever sat through.

  • Ogre Magi

    is nothing but christian propaganda

  • Abel

    @Chopsie: Amen to that!

    I’m a little bit interested in the updated version of “Evita”, I’ll admit.
