Sort of, that Paradise Found ends today. Off I go to Yankee Stadium this morning so that I can pass out from heat stroke, or something along those lines.

Adventures in the Endless Pursuit of Entertainment

Another blog review: Adventures in the Endless Pursuit of Entertainment: Paradise Found at the Menier Chocolate Factory, London.

“When Hal and Stro talk, you should listen”

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Alas, I got a bit bored halfway through the article that he links to, but Ken Davenport firmly believes that “When Hal and Stro talk, you should listen”.

On the other hand, I thought the Times’ recent Hair review was really funny! It sort of, maybe made me want to see Hair again too, just a little bit. Hopefully the feeling will pass soon!

Currently debating…

…whether I need a Paradise Found poster from Dress Circle, and pay way too much for shipping. Unless soooomeone who is already in London wants to pick one up for meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!?

London Reviews

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Thank goodness someone over at All that Chat compiled all the London reviews, because I’ve been waaay too distracted by all the season/series finales going on in tvland right now! (I’m not talking about Lost, because I gave up on that show back in S1! I cut my losses early on that one!)

The Guardian
The Telegraph
Times Online
Evening Standard
The Independent
What’s Onstage (msg board)
The Stage
VarietyThe Arts Desk

Alas, I couldn’t find a review from The Quibbler nor The Daily Prophet…but needless to say, the reviews up above are pretty harsh :/ At least there’s still Amadeus to look forward to?!

ETA 5/29: Added the Arts Desk review.

First Look at London

Monday, May 24th, 2010

I found this earlier today:

Life in the Cheap Seats – Webcowgirl’s London theatre reviews

I’m pretty sure we said the same thing about My Life with Albertine years ago  – incidentally, that was also a Richard Nelson show! It’s actually a really funny review (well, funny for me, I don’t think it’d be funny for anyone financing the show!) or maybe I just like it because it makes me feel better about not going to London.

Awww, at least she thinks the cast is talented!

ETA: This review compares Mandy Patinkin to Yoda! Oh dear…

Continuation of the BWW Interview

Friday, May 14th, 2010

From Broadway World: BWW Interviews The Cast Of Paradise Found – Including Patinkin, Hensley And Opel!

Does it even count as an interview if it’s just a sentence each?

This is another London Post (Cast List)

Friday, May 7th, 2010

I thought I’d compile a list of websites/links for the rest of the cast, and by that I mean, those people not named Jim:

Mandy Patinkin (w)
John McMartin (w)
Judy Kaye (w)
Kate Baldwin (w)
Shuler Hensley (w)
George Lee Andrews (ibdb)
Nancy Opel (w)
Amanda Kloots-Larsen (bww)
Lacey Kohl (imdb)
Herndon Lackey (ibdb)
Daniel Marcus (ibdb)
Martin Van Treuen (ibdb)
Pamela Winslow Kashani (imdb)

This list took way too long to compile, but I had a dentist appointment earlier today and needed something to keep my mind off the pain! And now I’m going to bed!

*Edited on 5/4 with two BWW interviews and some random articles. I’m a bit backlogged because I sort of have this thing that if I can’t take time off from work for a jimtrip, then I tend not to look for articles because otherwise I get grumpy everytime I’m reminded that I can’t go! But then the anal-retentive part of my brain kicks in later on and then there’s a whoosh!-ing of articles.

*ETA 5/31 link to an article from the London Times about Prince and Stroman.
