Editor’s Notes: New Season Fall ‘18


Women prevail


Move over, Eliza! Miss Vivian is here to herald a season in which women are liberally featured.

By some wonderful coincidence two major British actresses are taking over two major Shakespearean plays and transforming the male leads of both into female; The imperious Glenda Jackson is taking on King Lear, and dynamic Janet McTeer is playing Bernhardt playing Hamlet.


In the new musical Prom, the prom date this time is lesbian.

And Cher, not to be outdone by Donna, will have her own show.


The return to Broadway of treasured comedy icon Elaine May is drawing crowds to the Waverly Gallery


And Tootsie is coming back this time with a twist, I hear


Three Off Broadway successes: Torch Song, The Ferryman and  Be More Chill have made their way to Broadway.


Movies continue to provide fodder for the great white way: Tootsie, Network, King Kong, To Kill a Mockingbird, Beetlejuice (now a musical)


and an array of Stars out of Hollywood’s firmament, notably Brian Cranston, Daniel Radcliffe, Cherry Jones, Bobby Cannavale, Jeff Daniels, Kerry Washington, Steven Pasquale, to name a few,

enough to make stargazers salivate.


There will be New Shows joining this list, The Waverly Gallery, The Prom, The Nap, The Lifespan of a Fact and a veritable Milky Way of enticing productions:


And the beloved ape hovering over all, a category all to himself!


………………………aren’t we the lucky ones!!!
