Best Revival Nominee ‘The Mystery Of Edwin Drood’ Refused Permission To Perform At Tony Awards 2013.
Very strange choice.
Although the Roundabout Theatre Company’s recent Broadway revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood received five 2013 Tony nominations, including one for Best Revival of a Musical, the acclaimed production will not perform on the upcoming Tony telecast.
Stephanie J. Block, a 2013 Tony nominee for her performance in the title role of Drood, posted via Twitter May 29: “We will not be performing. Trust us… We want to. It’s just not ‘in the cards’ this year.”
Spokespersons for Roundabout and The Tony Awards could not confirm the news to Playbill.com.
The troupers of Rupert Holmes’ The Mystery of Edwin Drood, one of the best-reviewed musicals of the 2012-13 Broadway season, packed their trunks after the March 10 matinee. The extended run ended following 28 previews and 136 regular performances at Studio 54.
Whoever wrote out the credits could handle “Debra.” They didn’t blink at “Katharine.” But “Anjelica,” somehow, was just too tough… and whether this was NBC’s way of confirming that it just can’t wait to shuffle Smash off the air or Smash‘s way of signaling complete and utter defeat, the mistake still hasn’t been corrected on Hulu. La Huston’s name is, however, spelled correctly in the opening credits sequence that kicked off the finale’s first hour.
Update: A source tells EW that while Huston’s name was misspelled on the Smash finale’s digital print, it was spelled correctly on the version of the finale that aired Sunday night. The error on the digital print is apparently being corrected.
I fucking shit you not! Unbelievable.
Here is her song cut from Season 2.
UPDATE – Apparently he had the stroke last year and has improved…..HMMMMMMMM.
Dammit all to hell.
Rocky Horror Show actor Tim Curry is recovering after suffering a major stroke at his home in Los Angeles.
The British star, 67, is said to be ‘doing great’ following the collapse.
Curry rose to fame as Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the cult musical and went on to a successful stage and film career.
Few details were available about the stroke last night, but sources close to the actor refused suggestions that the stroke had made it difficult for him to speak.
‘Tim is doing great,’ said his longtime Los Angeles agent Marcia Hurwitz.
‘He absolutely can speak and is recovering at this time and in great humour’, she added.
Unmarried, he lives in the Hollywood Hills in a Spanish colonial-style villa.
The son of a Methodist Royal Navy chaplain, James, and his school secretary wife, Patricia, Curry is one of Britain’s best-loved character actors.
