To Kill on Broadway

Dear Friends,

Great News! One of our favorites books has made it to Broadway!

To Kill A Mockingbird is currently in previews and opens on December 13, 2018. It is adapted to the stage by the talented Aaron Sorkin, directed by Bartlett Sher, and stars Jeff Daniels as Atticus Finch and LaTanya Richardson Jackson as Calpurnia. One of the biggest surprises in the cast is the decision to cast Scout and Jem as adults (played by Celia Keenan-Bolger and Will Pullen respectively) rather than children.

This is the first time To Kill A Mockingbird has been present in the theatre and you do not want to miss out on the amazing opportunity to see it. It is playing at the Shubert Theatre (225 W. 44th Street) and you can purchase your tickets by clicking here.

Best regards,
Philip & Marilyn Langner

Shuffling…Out

Dear Friends,

We just read in the New York Times about how—despite its popularity and awards—Shuffle Along will be closing.  The production company is saying that it is due to the dramatic drop in sales for performances after Tony-awarding winning leading lady, Audra McDonald, goes on maternity leave.

It reminds us all that Broadway—and the theatre in general—can be a very fickle beast!

We remember well a few years (okay, more like 40 years) ago, when we were performing Golda starring Anne Bancroft at the Wilbur Theatre in Boston, and the theatre caught fire.  Thankfully no one was hurt—and as luck would have it the theatre across the street—the Shubert—was able to take us in and allow us to let the show go on (just sans the scenery!)!

We congratulate all the wonderful performers in Shuffle Along—and wish them all the very best, whatever their future may hold!

Best,

Philip & Marilyn
