Annie (Broadway). Anthony Warlow has been one of my very favorite leading men since I heard a cassette of his Secret Garden when I was a teenager. (If you haven't heard him and Philip Quast duet on "Lily's Eyes," I suggest you do some Googling.) After collecting all of his solo recordings and DVD's over the years, I'm ecstatic to finally see him onstage without going all the way to Australia!
Bare (Off-Broadway). Fell in love with this rock musical when I saw the early Los Angeles staging and moved to New York just in time for the excellent Off-Broadway premiere with Michael Arden and John Hill. Thrilled to see it brought back for a fresh run.
The Barclays Center (Brooklyn). Not totally theatre-related, but still connected. This new sports and concert arena in Brooklyn is rumored to be incredibly impressive. I've already booked a handful of dates to see the Brooklyn Nets play — and I have my tickets for upcoming concerts by (Broadway star) Barbra Streisand, (Broadway composer) Green Day and (Broadway producer) Jay-Z.
Glengarry Glen Ross (Broadway). I'll see Al Pacino in anything he does. Toss in other great talent like Bobby Cannavale and John C. McGinley and it promises to be quite an evening. Oh, and it happens to be a great David Mamet play, too.
A Christmas Story, The Musical! (Broadway). I can quote every line of the movie. The very prospect of a Leg Lamp chorus line is enough for me!Continued...
