King Kong Hanging on Broadway

Recommended Posts

I confess I don't know much about 'Kiss Me, Kate' but I did catch a couple scenes and found them both hilarious.

  • The two hoods (Keenan Wynne and James Whitmore) wrangling with Howard Kiel about money
  • Kiel manipulates the hoods into seizing Kathryn Grayson as a hostage --physically hauling her away--she cries for Kiel to do something --and he leans up against the door jamb, rolling his eyes and murmuring softly:  "Gentlemen...this ...is an outrage." And the two hoods grin at his wit. I still find this part laugh-out-loud funny.

It's Keenan Wynn and Howard Keel.

Feh. I see the ads for it all the time on NYC streets. Pathetic. Not only Kong, but "Kiss Me Kate", "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Oklahoma!" are (apparently) all playing on the Great White Way lately. Strictly for tourists.

I would say the casts for these 3 shows are great, but I don't know who it was who requested an "Oklahoma!" revival.

Aye. Anyway Broadway productions, I mean the crews and cast, I believe they work their butts off. That's one good thing I can say about them, they aren't lazy.

I just wish this Jeff Daniels guy would bump into me on the street so I can gaze back genuinely unrecognizant as to who just jostled me.

You'd be surprised at how frail the egos of these 'stars' often are. Some of them really are no better than ...well, that great, great star of stage and screen, Joseph Tura.
