Wall Street Journal Reviewer Is BANNED On Broadway After Admitting She Only Stays For Half Of The Shows!

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesWacky, Tacky & TrueGIFs

Broadway reviewer is banned from shows after flaunting her indifference

This is pretty darn unprofessional, and frankly kind of despicable.

In a recent Wall Street Journal column titled Confessions of a Broadway Bolter, theatre reviewer Joanne Kaufman admitted that she typically only stays for half of a show… and then leaves! But she still reviews them anyway!!! She explains:

"I'm embarrassed by how unembarrassed I am to admit that the very next night, I took early leave of The Country House, and the following night of It's Only a Play."

And those are only a couple of plays that she names.

Well, the Broadway community is obviously — and rightly — outraged by this admission. So much so that theatrical press agent and president of O&M Co. Rick Miramontez wrote a scathing letter to the WSJ, which they predictably did not print.

But it didn't matter because people got ahold of it anyway.

Rick explained that Joanne won't be welcome at any show he represents anymore — and that's a LOT! He went on to ask pointed questions like:

Disney confirmed their plans to bring Frozen to Broadway months ago, but it seems like the adaptation process is moving at a glacial pace.

Perez Reviews: 'On The Town'

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesPerez Reviews

On The Town is a classic!

Leonard Bernstein! Jerome Robbins! Comden & Green!

Musical theater LEGENDS who brought us some of the most iconic shows of all time!

And we had never seen it before! Thankfully, Thursday night we fixed that!

The new Broadway revival of On The Town is inconsistent but consistently entertaining!

It's worth seeing just for the dream ballet in the second act! One of the most exquisite things we have ever seen in a theater!

The show itself features some epic songs and epic dancing!

A revival is all about choices and, unfortunately, we just didn't agree with a lot of the direction, courtesy of John Rando.

The casting was problematic. Some actors were perceivably much older than their parts were written and intended to be.

Other actors, many of whom we've seen in multiple shows and LOVE, were directed to overact. WAY OVERACT.

It's as if the director felt too much of a need to fill the cavernous space of the Lyric Theater. Yes, that Broadway house is too big for that show!

Yet, despite those missteps, the show is very entertaining.

MAJOR PROPS must be given to choreographer Joshua Bergasse for his moves! Truly inspired! And there's LOTS of dancing in the show!

And, our favorite performer of the night turned out to be Samantha Sturm - and understudy for the female lead! She was clearly hungry for it and giving us her all! She was radiant! KUDOS!!!
