Good Greif, Rocco's Right
If you've ever taken a sidelong view of Steve On Broadway, you'll certainly have noticed that I proudly display my Daily Reads.
One of them is "What's Good/What Blows in New York Theatre" that's wonderfully written by New York-based Rocco. Aside from the fact that he has a thing for Marian Seldes, he's a very entertaining read.
Last week, Rocco scooped virtually every mainstream theatre site known to man to report that Michael Greif will be helming Romeo And Juliet next summer during the Public Theatre's Shakespeare in the Park festival. Rocco got the scoop after learning that a casting notice had been posted. As usual, that news led to some clever and acerbic musings regarding who might actually be cast.
Romeo And Juliet will be presented at the Delacorte Theatre from June 5-July 8. Cheers to Rocco for having the first word on the new show. Now let's pray that the stunt-casting is limited.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
