Ken Fallin’s Broadway: The Outsiders

Published

on

These boys are taking Broadway by storm Jason Schmidt, Sky Lakota-Lynch, and Brody Grant. In Tulsa, Oklahoma, 1967, the hardened hearts and aching souls of Ponyboy Curtis, Johnny Cade and their chosen family of “outsiders” are in a fight for survival and a quest for purpose in a world that may never accept them. A story of the bonds that brothers share and the hopes we all hold on to, this gripping new musical reinvigorates the timeless tale of “haves and have nots”, of protecting what’s yours and fighting for what could be.

The Outsiders opened on Broadway at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, 242 W 45th Street.

Ken Fallin’s Broadway: Alan Cumming Is Not Acting His Age

Published

on

On Monday March 11th Alan Cumming appeared on Broadway in “Is Not Acting His Age”. The solo show, which recently played London’s West End, plays Studio 54. There is a second show March 25th.

Cumming asked  “What exactly is acting your age? I’m constantly told, even now in my sixth decade, that I am child-like or puckish, and yet at the same time I’m also called a silver fox and a daddy. I think we all get really mixed messages about aging. We’re told to worship at the fountain of youth, to do everything we can to our bodies and our minds to stay young, yet then we bandy around pejoratives like ‘grow up’ or ‘act your age,’ even that we’re ‘mutton dressed as lamb. I feel I’m still at an age where I can dance till dawn but also be able to dole out some wisdom to my fellow revelers! Wisdom is just being able to recognize the repeating patterns that emerge as you get older, and maybe deciding to react to them differently. It’s just the same show with different costumes.”
