[quote]Woody Allen adopting his beloved comedy for Broadway
I think he's had quite enough fun with adoptions.
Another junkbox musical. Wonderful
Oh, shit! I didn't read the article first. I had no idea they were going to simply plug in old tunes. THAT is a terrible idea. The screenplay is ripe with material on which to base an original score.
BIG DEAL didn't work with old 20s and 30s tunes plugged in. This one probably won't work either. Too bad!
Patti L in the Dianne W role!
It should be Christine Ebersole.
"Patti L in the Dianne W role!"
Call me crazy but I'd prefer an actress who's the age Dianne was when she made the movie almost twenty years ago.
Rather than an actress who is the age Dianne is now.
Jennifer Tilly in the Jennifer Tilly role.
Movie is great, hopefully this will be good. DON'T SPEAK!!
Actually I was kidding about Patti. I think Christine is a great choice.
"Bullets Over Broadway" is the funniest movie ever, well, except for sometimes in mind it ties with "Best in Show."
Love Jennifer Tilly in 'Bullets' and Jennifer Coolidge in 'Best.'
Patti LuPone for the part of the rehearsal table!
Wiest will be either Chenoweth or Mullaly.
Broadway is not that imaginative and wants big names.
No one beyond Maplewood, NJ knows Ebersole.
[quote] She auditioned and Woody rejected her.
People dont really audition for his movies. From what I have read he will ask someone if they are interested in being in his film, they almost always say yes, and he just gives them the script and tells them when to show up. However, many people approach him and ask him if they can be in something. I'm pretty sure he turns more down than he accepts. I can totally see LuPone approaching him and asking that. And I can also see him saying, "oh sure, that would be great" and then he never called her.
There isn't a single reason to sing in this story. Dumb idea.
Will it star Glutton Foster?
Hope Woody gets Diane Keaton to return to Broadway for the Weist role. She'll act younger.
It's actually one of the less dumb ideas for a film/Broadway adaptation.
The action, the characters and the era are perfect for a new musical. If it avoids Chicago.
So who here has seen it?
"According to an Instagram from Heléne Yorke, who plays Olive, the show is making a minor change for its matinee audiences. In order to make the show more appropriate for student groups, the work 'f*ck' will be removed from Wednesday matinee performances."
I wonder if they'll also be removing the gag about Helene's character picking coins off the bar with her cooch.
