Are you serious ? With Djt as business ringmaster, Neuman fits the commedia role as well. Making themselves rich at the expense of hundreds of their investors and forlorn former employee’s. Money attracts money. Brains don’t apply it seems in 2020. Only clothes, haircuts and chutzpah matter !!!

An apt comparison is The Great Depression, not Viet Nam. THAT is where we are heading in 2020/21.

Broadway in repeat mode: danielpquinn684 | Newark, NJ

Brain dead and money out of control. Box office grosses with inflated egregious prices. TDF discounts (beyond my budget). As a Award winning director, Broadway was once my goal. Now it seems like a gang of producers at every awards show… Hype and gripe sway… Eons ago Liza Minelli inflated $100- tickets for The Act (and The Times published my letter) in 1977 Pocket change now for some. Way too much for me.

On Jerry Herman’s DEAR WORLD:
danielpquinn684, Newark, NJ, Feb. 22

The most poignant and powerful score was Dear World with Angela Lansbury and Milo O’Shea in 1970 on Broadway. The recording and the songs about madness and isolation from Giradoux’s play The Madwoman of Chaillot are still wounding and beautiful today. It should be seen and will be remembered.

Vooodo economic nostalgia: danielpquinn684 Newark, NJ Feb. 11

George Bush got vooodo economics right. Trickle down like a water leak will corrode our infrastructure to the sorry state of today. As an artist I have received trickled down support. More than starvation but less to live on. The economy is growing with new fast food joints or dollar stores on every vacant store space in NJ. Not much else and luxury rental signs everywhere.

The art of Banski: danielpquinn684 Newark, NJ Feb. 9

Ban ski is taking it in. Other more important artists are not. He exudes a mania of mockery and fun in our dreadfull time. Enuf..but bravo Banski as he is still alive and enjoying his show. Many other artists only earned money after they were dead.

Kobe Bryant and JFK Jr.: Daniel P Quinn Newark, NJ, Jan. 27

This tragic death echoes that of JFK junior as well. A very sad story and great loss for all of us.

Teatro Real is seemingly the equivalent of the Brooklyn Academy of Music .

My first “job” was a lengthy 6 week stint at the Brookyln Academy of Music on HAPPY END for the Chelsea Theatre Center. HE was the failed successor to THREEPENNY OPERA and arrived via Yale Rep in Brooklyn. Shirley Knight was the star with Bob Gunton, Joe Grifassi and Tony Azito. It clocked in at about 3 hours with a plot based on the Salvation Army fighting Gangsters in Chicago in the 1920’s.

There were grumblings in rehearsals and fights about the text, the star and the…Read more · 3 min read
