Everyting's Changed

And here we are at another year's end. The cable news networks are looking back on the top news stories of the year -- and the decade! (Yes, I know the decade isn't over for another year, but I fear we've lost that argument.) It's very funny to me that the vast majority of the pundits and experts still seem genuinely baffled at what's happening in our politics and our culture.They shouldn't be.I've been thinking and writing about this for a while now. We are in the middle of massive, fundamenta...

RIP Hal Prince

I woke up today to the news that Hal Prince has died, at age 91.I never met Hal, but his impact on my life is profound. Everything I believe about the theatre, everything I do in the theatre, everything I make in the theatre, it all has roots in the work of the great Hal Prince. He changed everything.No other artist -- not Fosse, Tommy Tune, Sondheim, nobody -- has been more of an influence on the work I do with New Line. It was Hal Prince who taught me the poetry of staging a show, that audien...

Fascinatin' Rhythm

When I wrote my history book, Strike Up the Band, I had two primary agendas. One was to reject the premise of all other musical theatre history books, that the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical was the pinnacle of the art form. It wasn't. The other agenda was to include in the story of our art form all the people of color, the women, the people with disabilities who helped shape the American musical theatre but get left out of almost all history books. I hope I did a decent job of re-balancing our ...

As Soft and as Pink as a Nursery -- 13 Really Sexist Musicals

In this moment in our cultural history, in which we're finally calling out expressions of sexism, racism, and other bias, it's worth looking closer at the shows we produce. Maybe the Era of Trump has made it necessary.A while back, I wrote a blog post about musicals that are much darker than most people think. Now we're having debates about problematic content in older musicals, and whether or not some older shows should be largely retired.Sometimes people tell me -- apologetically, but not rea...

I’m Just Like My Country -- I’m Young, Scrappy, and Hungry

Back in 2014, on a whim (or possibly because I was reeeeeally stoned), I re-sorted the list of New Line shows into chronological order by when the shows originally debuted, to get a look at how our company has explored the history and evolution of the American musical theatre. It's cool to see how the art form has changed and reacted to world events over the twentieth century, but also how wide-ranging New Line's programming actually is. It's worth noting that never, in twenty-seven years have ...

Can Boston Re-Establish Itself As The Big Pre-Broadway Tryout Town?

“Composer Richard Rodgers, of Rodgers & Hammerstein fame, used to say he wouldn’t open a can of tomatoes without first bringing it to Boston. … It’s been a long time since the Hub had that kind of clout. But now a major new player, the UK-based Ambassador Theatre Group, and Emerson College are pouring millions of dollars into making the Emerson Colonial Theatre a venue for pre-Broadway tryouts.”

Exit Lines: MeToo Musicals

To review the Tony-nominated musicals of the recent past is a reminder of how small the number of Tony-nominated musicals that can profitably be revived on Broadway is. Shows as diverse as Bright Star, Nice Work If You Can Get It, and Memphis (the 2009 winner) can go on to half lives on tour and as theatre group favorites, but a second Broadway run is all but out of the question, as it is for the umpteenth movies-into-musicals that crowd a typical season. If Broadway revivals is one element that...

A Lavish Feast for Every Yeast

We produced The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee in 2009. Our audiences loved it, our actors loved it, and though I enjoyed watching performances, I didn't enjoy directing it all that much.Why not?It required almost nothing of me. Roughly 95% of blocking rehearsals were me saying, "Okay, then you get up and cross to the mic... then when the song's over, you go back to your chair..."It's true that I did get to help the actors with characters, backstory, all that fun stuff. Despite the fact...

Rick

I discovered two of my favorite musicals, shows that would help shape the artistic shit disturber I am today, when I was fairly young. The first was 1776, not just an incredibly well-written musical, but an actual thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat, even though you know the ending. The second show was How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, the fiercely cynical satire of American Big Business. Both shows are every bit as relevant today as they were when they written. And...

Funny Girl, Whistle, and Fiddler, Oh My!

I"m very cuspy.I was born in 1964, right on the cusp between the Baby Boomers (1946-64) and Generation X (1965-1984), though I think I'm really about 30% Boomer and 70% Gen Xer. I was also born on the cusp between Aquarius and Pisces. In fact, not long ago, some "experts" re-figured the zodiac to account for calendar errors centuries ago, and though I've always been a Pisces, in the "new" zodiac, I'm an Aquarius.And since I'm crazy about Hair, I LOVE THAT.I was also born on the cusp between the...

Lincoln Center Snapshot: Bing, Bernstein, and Balanchine Fifty Years Later

The 7 Lively Arts

So I've been reading this wonderful book, The 7 Lively Arts, written in 1924 by writer and cultural critic Gilbert Seldes, who "spent his career analyzing popular culture in America, advocating cultural democracy, and subsequently, calling for public criticism of the media," according to Wikipedia.Amazon describes his books as, "Intelligent, engaging discussions of slapstick, comic strips, vaudeville, and other elements of popular culture and their relationship to such traditional art forms as ...

25 Musicals That Are Darker Than You Think

Sometimes people tell me – apologetically, but not really – that they don't really like "the new musicals." They like Rodgers & Hammerstein because they "just want escape." You know, like the "escape" of World War II in the Pacific, or the "escape" of watching the King of Siam lose his culture and then his life, or the "escape" of watching Jud Fry buy pornography from Ali Hakim, then try to murder Curly and Laurie, then die in a knife fight...Escape is awesome.But it's not just Rodgers & Hammer...

Top Ten Hidden Gems on the New Line Website

New Line was one of the first theatre companies in the St. Louis region (possibly the first) to have a website, first launched in 1997. But more recently, I've been concerned that New Line's website didn't look great on mobile devices, and in this new age, that's a problem. So a couple years ago, we started paying for a service that automatically turned our site into a mobile site, but it didn't really look that great.This fall we hired local web designer Cristopher Ontiveros to design an all-n...
