tl;dr for October 10th

  • The planned Off-Broadway revival of Howard Crabtree's "When Pigs Fly", the celebrated gay musical from 1996, was abruptly cancelled last week, mere days before previews were to start, due to a shortfall in funding 
  • The stage adaptation of Baz Luhrman's "Moulin Rouge!", directed by Alex Timbers, has assembled its production team and is gearing up for a development lab this month
  • Having an unusually hard time getting tickets for "Hamilton"? A new lawsuit might reveal why. Ticketmaster is suing ticket broker Prestige Entertainment, alleging the company used bots and fake accounts to purchase up to 30 to 40 percent of tickets for sale, violating New York's anti-scalping laws. Not cool. 
  • At long last, we have our Eliza!  Lauren Ambrose will star as Eliza Doolittle in Lincoln Center's spring revival of "My Fair Lady" directed by Bartlett Sher; she'll be joined by British actor Harry Hadden-Paton, as Professor Henry Higgins, Norbert Leo Butz, and Diana Rigg
