The team behind CYRANO on keeping the text and finding the voice

By

Amanda Marie Miller

on

March 3, 2022

A movie musical filmed in isolation, a release postponed by COVID precautions, and a source text nearly 125 years old… sound like a challenge? Not for the team behind Cyrano, the new musical film starring Peter Dinklage, Haley Bennett, and Kelvin Harrison Jr., in theatres now. Directed by Joe Wright (Pride & Prejudice, Anna Karenina, Atonement) and written by Erica Schmidt (Cyrano with The New Group, Mac Beth at Red Bull Theater, A Month in the Country at Classic Stage Company), this adaptation highlights the universal truths behind the story and the ways that isolation can drive us to connect.This particular version–notable for its exclusion of the customary fake nose– was developed over many years and locations. First produced in 2018, the iteration written and directed by Schmidt was seen at Goodspeed Musicals in Connecticut and later at the Daryl Roth Theatre in New York, produced by The New Group. Moved by the performances, director Wright brought Schmidt, Dinklage, and Bennett back together for a feature film that challenges all expectations.

WINNIE THE POOH Is The Breath Of Fresh Air You Didn’t Know You Needed

By

Amanda Marie Miller

on

January 18, 2022

Winnie the Pooh at Theatre Row is like a long exhale. Settling into a comfy chair, holding a warm mug. It’s a production that is crisp, beautifully executed, and - if you asked the toddler sitting near me at the performance - the most gripping story line ever written about a bear in dire need of honey. The characters, conventions, and general sound of the show bring something comfortable and nostalgic, easy to do since the source has been around since 1926. It is the production aspects however, that offer effortlessly lovely artistry in a format we don’t see too frequently. Each and every detail created this cozy little world, where I was just a guest in the Hundred Acre Wood.

JEANNA de WAAL Lights Up 54 Below — Review

By

Amanda Marie Miller

on

January 12, 2022

Jeanna de Waal’s debut cabaret show, performed Monday evening at Feinstein’s/54 Below, perfectly captured the spirit of a performer excited for the future and “a princess moving on'' after the hasty closing of Diana. Packed with superfans and sheep sweaters, the venue was filled with giddy looks between tables and a sense of wonder for what was about to unfold. Each song was met with a rumbling of whispers ringing out before lyrics could even begin, as many opted to quickly pull out their phones, set to record and share the drama of it all. de Waal had been at the center of the Diana universe for years, through the San Diego production, two rounds of Broadway previews, a Netflix recording under severe COVID precautions, and a run that would ultimately play 34 performances before closing on December 19, 2021. Years in the making, de Waal’s performance as the people’s princess turned heads while her solo show continued to win hearts.

Madame Morribles Assemble - Six Magical Morribles to Step In On Broadway

January 11, 2022

A frequently slept upon, yet key player for any production of Wicked, Madame Morrible stands out for her mysterious turn from mentor to villain- unless she was actually an antagonist all along. While we've had an excellent run of Morrible talent (Jayne Houdyshell, Carol Kane, Alexandra Billings,) there will maybe, probably, likely come a time when Wicked needs the publicity and ticket sales that come with a stunt casting. So, as a public service, I’ve rounded up six very bold choices for future Madame Morrible’s including Taraji P. Henson, Katie Couric, Kristina Wong, Ziwe, J. Smith Cameron, and Tavi Gevinson.
