Theatre Roundup: Week of February 8, 2021

Happy Sunday, friends! Welcome to the second edition of Theatre Roundup. We previously introduced this column as Musical Theatre Roundup but decided to change things up a bit. Regardless, this will still be a place where we can talk about what’s going on in the industry. This column was made in collaboration with Staff Writers Camille and Kathryn. From Cinderella (1997) to a couple of movie remakes, here’s what you might have missed.

IN MEMORIAM

This post is dedicated to Theatre District Restaurateur Joe Allen and The Supreme’s Mary Wilson who also has stage credits in shows like Beehive and Grandma Sylvias Funeral. We’ll miss you.

STORIES THIS WEEK

  • Things are happening every day… Rodger & Hammerstein’s Cinderella (1997) captured hearts on Disney+ this week. If this is your first time or you’ve lost track, welcome to the ball! In honor of the huge event, Entertainment Weekly hosted a reunion with stars Brandy, Paolo Montalban, Whoopi Goldberg, Victor Garber, Jason Alexander, Bernadette Peters, and Veanne Cox. You can watch it here. Be honest. How many times have you watched it already? We promise we won’t judge.

WHAT’S COMING UP

That’s all we have for now. What are you looking forward to? Feel free to join us in the comments if you have any thoughts. We’d love to hear from you. Have a great week, everyone!
