    I can't say I'm a fan of Tootsie, but Yazbeck writing the score, Ellis directing, and Fontana starring sounds like a dream of a creative team, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    In other news, I went on a ticket-buying rampage this weekend for spring shows, and it's just ridiculous how prohibitively expensive B'way has gotten. It used to be that you could find reasonably priced mezzanine seats in the $60-80 range. But for Boys in the Band, for instance, the worst seat in the entire house will still cost you $125 before fees. I mean, I know the gays gotta eat, but seriously...

    Head Over Heels, Featuring Songs of the Go-Go's, Is Headed to Broadway

    Head Over Heels, a new musical comedy featuring the songs of the Go-Go's, will open on Broadway at the Hudson Theatre on Thursday, July 26, with previews beginning on Saturday, June 23. Before its Broadway premiere, the musical will play a limited engagement at San Francisco's Curran Theatre, April 10-May 6, with opening night set for Wednesday, April 18.

    Based on Sir Philip Sidney's The Arcadia, Head Over Heels is described as "an unpredictable, Elizabethan romp about a royal family that must prevent an oracle's prophecy of doom. In order to save their beloved kingdom, the family embarks on an extravagant journey wrought with mistaken identities, jealous lovers, sexual awakening, scandal and self-discovery, where everything (and everyone) is not quite what it seems."

    Hit songs from the Go-Go's include "We Got the Beat," "Get Up and Go," "Cool Jerk," "Vacation," "Our Lips Are Sealed," "Lust to Love," "Head Over Heels," and the Belinda Carlisle solo hits "Mad About You" and "Heaven Is a Place on Earth."

    Under the direction of Michael Mayer, Head Over Heels will feature musical supervision, orchestrations, and arrangements by Tom Kitt and choreography by Spencer Liff. The musical features an original book by Jeff Whitty and is adapted by James Magruder. The rest of the creative team includes Julian Crouch (scenic and puppet design), Arianne Phillips (costume design), Kevin Adams (lighting design), Kai Harada (sound design), and Andrew Lazarow (projections design), with Kimberly Grigsby as musical director and Lisa Iacucci as production stage manager.

    Harry Connick Jr To Star In ‘The Sting’ Musical Eyeing Broadway

    Harry Connick Jr has been set to star in The Sting, a new musical in the works that will have its world premiere next month at New Jersey’s Paper Mill Playhouse, with the producers eyeing a Broadway transfer. The musical, based on the 1973 Oscar-winning Universal film, is set for a limited run March 29-April 29.

    Connick will play Henry Gondorff, portrayed by Paul Newman in the feature film, which was set in 1930s Chicago and centers on a pair of con men — small-town grifter Johnny Hooker (played in the film by Robert Redford) and hustler Gondorff — who plot to bring down the city’s most corrupt racketeer. Directed by George Roy Hill, the movie won Oscars for Best Film along with director, screenplay (David S. Ward), costumes (Edith Head), editing (William Reynolds) and the ragtime-y score by Marvin Hamlisch.

    As first revealed back in 2014, the musical’s book is by Bob Martin, with music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann & Greg Kotis with Connick. The producers also said the score will contain music by Scott Joplin including “The Entertainer.” Warren Carlyle is the choreographer and John Rando is directing. The rest of the musical’s cast is still to be announced.

    That’s a strong creative team for The Sting but I won’t be optimistic.

    Jeff Daniels, Celia Keenan-Bolger to Star in Broadway's To Kill a Mockingbird

    Celia is one of my faves, so I'll forget about my Sorkin allergy and go see this.

    Stephen McKinley and Phyllis Somerville as well!!!!! Just wish I liked Jeff Daniels more. Atticus? I'll suck it up for the rest of the cast.

    I've always liked him better on stage than on screen, if it's any consolation! He was marvelous in Blackbird, most recently.

    Well, older Scout narrates the book, so I assume they could take the same approach here.

    THAT is a cast. I cannot wait for this. It has the potential to be beyond brilliant.

    Hearing good things about the first preview of Carousel, but I'm not sure what to think of this Playbill. Rudin sure does like using rehearsal photos.

    Just read a few reactions to the first Three Tall Women preview. I guess Glenda Jackson is cruising to that Triple Crown?
