Chasing Away The Broadway Blues
If you, like me, are completely distraught over the recently-announced closing of Broadway's Passing Strange on July 20th, perhaps these tidbits will cheer you up: Godspell will open at the Barrymore in September, Raúl Esparza is joining the revival of Speed-The-Plow, and come the fall, we may have a new musical about the Garden of Eden to make fun of. I can hear the score now...I imagine Jerry Herman-esque songs with titles like "Fig Leaf," "It's Only An Apple, Adam!" and "Raisin' Cain (Ain't Easy)." Pray that there will be a dream ballet, danced by the snake. On roller skates. Woo hoo!
