When does the Loretta Lynn musical open on Broadway?
The one that will star Zooey Deschanel. Thanks.
When Zooey stops being twee and learns how to act.
Suri, remind me to call the producers to discuss Loretta "baloney makes you horny" Lynn
Loretty must have been high when she announced it. A Coal Miner's Daughter show as a play with music might stand a chance at being worthwhile, but not with Zooey Deschanel. I shudder to think who would play Patsy Cline.
You got ir wrong, OP. Zooey Deschanel isn't up for the lead. The star will be Zoe Chace - her first musical since she portrayed Jud Fry in "Oklahoma" in college.
Thanks for the responses. Does anyone know an opening date? New York is on my list of summer 2013 vacation possibilities, and that would be a fun musical. My partner LOVES Loretta Lynn.
Have you ever heard of google OP? I'm not trying to be mean either.
Google doesn't give a projected opening date. It just talks about it being in development.
New York can be so much fun when you come as a tourist, but for God's sake, WHY would you come in the summer?
I understand that's when a lot of people take vacation, but the summer is just the worst time, along with Thanksgiving through January.
Why not come in the fall when some of the tourists have cleared out, not as many kids and fraus running wild with delusions of being SATC gals? Autumn here can really be spectacular, you can see shows then, the city is cooler and you'll feel better, thus encouraging you to get out and away from Midtown and see REAL New York.
At least consider my suggestion, it's good one. But, either way, welcome to New York. We're glad to see you!
Thank you, R8! You made me LOL about the fraus running wild with delusions of being SATC girls. We're also thinking about Vancouver or San Francisco (which is kind of our old-standby).
Loretty's show won't be opening this year - it was announced and nothing more. I don't even think they announced a development team or writer.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
