The Sister Act sisters are back, and this week it is all about Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812! We take a look inside the most Tony-nominated musical of the 2016-2017 season - discussing the show, the cast, and its journey to Broadway. Andrey may not be here, but Abby and Lily have got you covered on all things Comet.
To celebrate Patina Miller’s birthday, here she is belting out an eleven-o'clock number, the title song in this show! She originated the part in the West End and then brought it to Broadway. That’s the way to open a show. That’s the way to start a Broadway career.
And by broadway shows I mean how many times I have seen the Broadway production of a certain show not counting regional/community stuff (I’ve lose track of the amount of Les Mis and Sweeney’s I have seen lol). I am counting national tours if they are replicas ex: Wicked.
-Cats: 11 (counting the future ticket to closing)
-Hello, Dolly!: 4
-The Phantom of the Opera (Hal Prince): 4
-Hand to God: 3
-A Doll’s House Part 2: 3 (my class will be seeing Julie White next month)
-Mary Poppins: 3
-Significant Other: 2
-The King and I (Lincoln Center): 2
-Chicago (Revival obvs): 2
-Fun Home: 2
-SISTER ACT THE MUSICAL: 2
-Les Miserables (revival): 2
-The Addams Family: 2 (I wanted to give it another chance with the tour revisions what can I say I wanted it to work)
-Memphis: 2 (idk lol)
And maybe I’ll make
a painful mistake.
It’s mine though, to take or refuse.
And all of the doors yet to open,
all of the rooms ahead -
They’re beaconing bright,
scary and new -
But I’m standing tall,
and I’m walking through.
