New York Entertainment Ezine, Issue #001 -- March
March 10, 2007

Spring is in the air and so much is happening on The Great White Way! We are saying goodbye to a beloved show, welcoming several new productions to the stage, embracing an idol and witnessing some big names on the marquee.

Are you looking for something fun to do in the next few months? Go see a show. There are so many to choose from; a musical, a play, a revival or maybe even one you have seen before. Les Miz has extended its run at least through the summer, so now is the perfect time to see this Broadway phenomenon. It was originally scheduled to close in March. Maybe you are in the mood for something new? Lucky for you these shows are scheduled to preview or open in March and April… Legally Blonde, A Moon for the Misbegotten, Inherit the Wind, Love Musik and The Pirate Queen. Hurry now and get your tickets!

American Idol season three winner Fantasia Barrino is set to join the cast of A Color Purple in the lead role of Celie. Ms. Barrino is scheduled to begin performances on April 10, 2007. If you are going specifically to see her you should purchase your tickets for a show after the 10th.

Congratulations to A Chorus Line! The production has recouped its entire $8 million investment after just nineteen weeks and 157 performances. Since its October opening it has broken the house record seven times proving it is a Singular Sensation! There are several hard hitting leading men gracing New York with their presence this spring. Brian Dennehy and Christopher Plummer are both set to star in the upcoming revival of Inherit the Wind this March. The mesmerizing voice of Liev Scheiber will take on Talk Radio and Kevin Spacey will take to the stage in the love story A Moon for the Misbegotten. And let’s not forget the hysterically funny David Hyde Pierce as a stage struck detective trying to solve a backstage murder in the original comedy Curtains! Bialystock and Bloom are bidding farewell to Broadway. After six years and 2,502 performances The Producers are saying goodbye on April 22, 2007. Its exit will make room for another Mel Brooks comedy; Young Frankenstein. Brooks will write the score and the show will be an adaptation of his 1974 film of the same name. The Producers debuted in 2001 and starred Nathan Lane and Matthew Broderick. It went on to win twelve Tony Awards and broke box office records. Thanks for a great run. You will be missed!
