What’s On in Theatreland – Fall 2009

September 12, 2009 § 2 Comments

TimeOut New York (TONY) is a fantastic source for all things New York.  You can check them out online.  Or you can purchase a hard copy, which I highly recommend, in advance of your trip.

TONY recently published its Broadway fall preview, a highlight of the season’s upcoming plays and musicals.  Included are the revival of the musical Ragtime,  Sienna Miller and Johnny Lee Miller in Patrick Marber’s After Miss Julie, Gina Gershon and John Stamos in Bye Bye Birdie, and Richard Thomas in David Mamet’s Race, to name a few.  Make sure not to miss the last item on their list, “The Top 5 Off Broadway Shows of the Fall”.

Here are some of my recommendations for fall theatre season.

Shows running that I loved:

After Miss Julie (I saw this in London five years ago and will see it again in NYC)

Billy Elliott The Musical

God of Carnage

South Pacific

The Lion King

Shows I really want to see:

A Steady Rain – Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman, need I say more.

Hamlet – because Jude Law blew them away in London and he’s crossing the pond with this one.

Jersey Boys – because I STILL haven’t seen it.

Oleanna – because I missed it in London five years ago and Julia Stiles will reprise her role.

Superior Donuts – because Tracy Letts’ August Osage County was a masterpiece.  My friends and I did not move from our seats for 3-1/2 hours, 3 acts, 2 intermissions.

The Understudy – because it stars Julie White, whose performance in last year’s From Up Here was heartbreaking, funny, and real.  Check out BroadwayBox.com for discounted tickets through January 17, 2010.

Wishful Drinking – because I think Carrie Fisher is brilliant.
