(922)    1927 - Actif

Eugene DeRosa, architect. Built by Fortune Gallo. Foreclosed after the market crash. In 1933, became the Casino de Paris, a nightclub run by Billy Rose. WPA took over in 1937. CBS acquired the space in 1942, used it as a studio, and sold it in 1972. The new owners opened a disco, Studio 54, making headlines for the celebrities in attendance as well as the embezzlement scandal that forced them to sell it in 1980. Roundabout Theatre Company bought the theatre after "Cabaret" (1998) was a success there.

16) Lifespan of a Fact (The) (Original)

Joué durant  2 mois 3 semaines

Nb de preview: 32 previews
Nb de représentations: 44 représentations
Première preview: jeu. 20 septembre 2018
Première: jeu. 18 octobre 2018
Dernière: dim. 13 janvier 2019

Metteur en scène: Leigh Silverman •  
Chorégraphe:  
Avec: Daniel Radcliffe (as Jim Fingal), Cherry Jones (as Emily Penrose) and Bobby Cannavale (as John d'Agata) 

Commentaire: Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones & Bobby Cannavale return to the Great White Way to star in the world premiere of The Lifespan of a Fact, directed by Tony Award nominee Leigh Silverman.

The Lifespan of a Fact is based on the stirring true story of John d'Agata’s essay, “What Happens There,” about the Las Vegas suicide of teenager Levi Presley. Jim Fingal, assigned to fact check the piece, ignited a seven-year debate on the blurred lines of what passes for truth in literary non-fiction.

"Why let the facts get in the way of a good story?" as the old adage goes. And yes, that is the central dilemma of this 95-minute no intermission play that hurtles through a few crucial days in the lives of writer John d'Agata, fact-checker Jim Fingal and editor Emily Penrose. Two opposing ideologies collide in a battle of two stubborn and highly intellectual combatants, while we are forced to ask ourselves where we stand. Facts are facts and there is no evading them, according to Jim. Or can facts be manipulated if they artistically enhance the telling of the story, John poses. Anyone who has never told a lie has never told a good story… Emily resides as judge and jury over the proceedings and it will ultimately be her call whether to publish the essay or not, as we draw ever closer to the Monday morning deadline.

Now you think you know what to expect... A drama that solely consists of a heavily-armed debate of ethical ideals? Think again... The Lifespan of a Fact is so deliciously packed with comedy, it catches you off-guard and draws you in unknowingly. Daniel Radcliffe, in particular, shines brightly, showing off his uncanny ability for comic timing as the obsessive, terrier-like Jim. His exchanges with Bobby Canavale (as John), as he flies to Las Vegas to confront the writer in his own home, are priceless. From his deadpan facial expressions to his slightly awkward physicality opposite the much larger stature of Cannavale, Radcliffe is delivering a master class that is well worth the price of admission.

Cherry Jones is also perfectly cast as the voice of reason and the authority in the equation. She exudes a wealth of experience and credibility on the stage and manages to steer the ship steadily towards its conclusion; albeit a deliberately ambiguous one, as we, the audience, momentarily slip into her shoes.

This production has an air of slickness about it - from Lucy Mackinnon's ultra-modern timeline and email projections to Mimi Lien's seamlessly efficient sliding sets - and director Leigh Silverman's execution is always precise, in terms of the pacing and use of space. It is a rare occasion that a new play stages its world premiere directly on Broadway and on this occasion, no doubt aided by the star quality and appeal of its cast, it has been a resounding success. Let's hope that the lifespan of this play reaches past Studio 54 and out into the rest of the theatrical world.  (plus)

15) Children of a Lesser God (Revival)

Joué durant  1 mois 2 semaines

Nb de preview: 23 previews
Nb de représentations: 54 représentations
Première preview: jeu. 22 mars 2018
Première: mer. 11 avril 2018
Dernière: dim. 27 mai 2018

Metteur en scène: Kenny Leon •  
Chorégraphe:  
Avec: Joshua Jackson (as James Leeds), Lauren Ridloff (as Sarah Norman), Kecia Lewis (as Mrs. Norman), Julee Cerda (as Edna Klein), Treshelle Edmond (as Lydia), Anthony Edwards (as Mr. Franklin), and John McGinty (as Orin Dennis) 

Commentaire: The acclaimed Berkshire Theater Group revival of Mark Medoff's 1980 Tony Award-winning "Best Play" Children of a Lesser God transfers to Broadway under the helm of Tony Award winner Kenny Leon.

TV favorite Joshua Jackson, known for his recurring roles on shows such as "The Affair", "Fringe", and "Dawson's Creek", reprises his performance as James Leeds, alongside co-star Lauren Ridloff as Sarah Norman. Both actors are making their Broadway debuts in the production, which began performances at Broadway's Studio 54 on March 22, 2018.

With supertitles and closed captioning at every performance, as well as American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters at select performances, this production is perhaps the most accessible show in Broadway history and is shedding light on the non-hearing world - a demographic of society that receives sadly too little media attention. Kenny Leon's interpretation is a highly-stylized piece with minimalistic set pieces, surrounded by doorways and tree-trunks, bathed in cold and clinical lighting. The warmth of the piece is solely emitted through the intensity of the interactions between James Leeds and Sarah Norman, and with the latter's relationship with her mother, which evolves from estrangement to redemption. The text also highlights the deaf person's ability to enjoy music on a couple of occasions (through sensitivity to vibrations) and Mr. Leon has taken that opportunity to delve into his own collection of favorite artists to supply a soundtrack to Children of a Lesser God, beginning with Stevie Wonder.

For hearing members of the audience, the play is an intriguing insight into the non-hearing world, especially in its consideration of how members of the deaf community relate to each other and if they desire to be a part of the hearing world or shut themselves away from it. For non-hearing members of the audience, Children of a Lesser God is a rare opportunity of total inclusion, where their trials, tribulations and triumphs stand rightfully in the limelight.  (plus)

14) Latin History for Morons (Original)

Joué durant  3 mois 1 semaine

Première preview: jeu. 19 octobre 2017
Première: mer. 15 novembre 2017
Dernière: dim. 25 février 2018

Metteur en scène: Tony Taccone •  
Chorégraphe:  
Avec: John Leguizamo 

Commentaire: Tony Award & Golden Globe nominee and Emmy Award winner John Leguizamo has made a name for himself on both the stage and the silver screen. His iconic appearances in films such as "To Wong Foo Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar", "Carlito's Way", as well as Baz Luhrmann's "Romeo + Juliet​" and "Moulin Rouge!", have solidified him as a household name. Voicing the character of Sid the Sloth in the popular "Ice Age" movie franchise has also won him countless fans of a new generation. However on Broadway and off-Broadway, he is widely acclaimed for his topical and raucous one-man shows.

After the success of Mambo Mouth (1990), Spic-O-Rama (1992), his Tony-nominated performance in Freak (1998), Sexaholix... A Love Story (2001), and Ghetto Klown (2011), Leguizamo graces us yet again with a solo offering, this time inspired by the severe lack of Latino role models in his son's American History classes. Latin History for Morons played an extended limited engagement at The Public Theater in the spring of 2017 and now moves uptown to the iconic Studio 54.

Leguizamo writes in the Playbill of the show beneath his credits that he "never got into the real Studio 54 back in the day, doing the show here is the only way he could get in!" And lucky for us because Latin History for Morons is a most entertaining trip to Studio 54, where we are more than happy to play the role of the 'morons'.

The structure of Leguizamo's show is well-balanced and timed to perfection, shifting between the titular theme of dumbing down 3,000 years of latin history and, to our unexpected delight, regaling touching (and hilarious) stories about parenting. Leguizamo throws in a handful of latin-inspired dance breaks for good measure too, proving he's still got the moves and that (latin) dad dancing rules! He plays out the interactions between himself and his vulnerable son or between himself and his exasperating shrink with great comic timing and sensitivity. You never feel the performance dragging too much on one particular topic and the historical teachings are kept lively with the inclusion of such ingredients as syphilis and intimate relationships with sheep. Yes... sheep…  (plus)

Commentaire: Following its sell-out run at the Public Theater, Lynn Nottage sees her acclaimed drama and 2017 Tony Award nominee for Best Play about the decline of industry transfer to Broadway's Studio 54. A searing portrayal of a group of friends pitted against each other in order to save their jobs amidst cutbacks, Nottage's work has been described by critics as incredibly timely for the state of employment in America. Sweat was awarded the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, making Nottage the first female playwright to win the prestigious award twice, following her 2009 win for Ruined.  (plus)

Commentaire: Roundabout Theatre mark their 50th Anniversary season with a brand new Broadway revival production of She Loves Me. The musical holds a special place in Roundabout's history - their ten-time Tony nominated revival of the show in 1993 was the company's first Broadway Musical. This new production nearly matched that record this year, picking up eight Tony nominations, winning one.
