Dame Edna, Feinstein Eye B'way
“The show has become even more elaborate than I imagined,” said Dame Edna.
“There will be a twelve piece orchestra,” declared Michael Feinstein.
“There is much more scenery than I could even chew,” noted Dame Edna. “
My costume changes may even rival Dame Edna’s,” argued Michael Feinstein.
“Two more artists have joined the company, doubling our cast size,” added Dame Edna.
“And do I know from strobe lights?” asked Michael Feinstein.
It is thus with great reluctance but enormous panache, given the expanding parameters of the production, that All About Me announces a new first – it moving theatres even before opening. The production will now begin performances at Henry Miller’s Theatre (124 West 43rd St.) moving two blocks from one of the New York’s prime theatres – and the originally announced – John Golden Theatre.
“Henry Miller. John Golden. I just love men,” said Dame Edna.
“I wonder if they were lovers,” added Michael Feinstein.
“Oh, you, concert divas always have to get in the last word,” from Dame Edna.
All About Me, written by Christopher Durang and directed by Jerry Zaks, will play Henry Miller’s Theatre, beginning previews Friday, February 19, 2010 and opening on Thursday, March 18, 2010. Tickets will be available through Telecharge.com, or 212-239-6200 at a date to be announced and the box office will open at a later date also to be announced soon.
Roundabout Theatre Company's production of Bye Bye Birdie is currently playing at Henry Miller’s Theatre through January 24, 2010. All About Me is produced by Jeffrey Richards and Jerry Frankel.
