Save A Prayer For The Morning After: Duran Duran "Opens" On Broadway Tonight

Save A Prayer For The Morning After: Duran Duran "Opens" On Broadway Tonight

This evening marks the Broadway debut for Duran Duran: Red Carpet Massacre at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre. The 80s supergroup will perform for over two hours a night on November 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 13

Band members Simon LeBon, Nick Rhodes, John Taylor and Roger Taylor each collect a Great White Way credit as they "take audiences in this historic thousand-capacity venue on a musical journey, presenting their new record in its entirety, as well as classics such as ‘Rio,’ ‘Save A Prayer,’ 'Hungry Like The Wolf’ and ‘Ordinary World.’"

Promising "magnificent production values and a completely new stage show," this two week gig is in support of the band's new recording that comes out on November 13.

Does anyone know whether Ben Brantley will be reviewing this one?

I don't know whether Mr. Brantley will be there, but it is interesting to have a band take over a Broadway theater for concerts. Is this a pretty unusual event?

I'm sure he'll send Isherwood for this one. ;-)

Thanks Deck1 for the answer to Esther - that was an answer I did not know!

Monschein, I was thinking the same thing, although I have my doubts as to whether the theatre press will "review" it - perhaps the regular concert beat critics will be there instead?
