Load-In's Turn

Load-In's Turn

I'm not prone to carrying around my camera, but I happened to have mine the other day as I was strolling by Broadway's St. James Theatre.

There, the load-in was in progress for the revival of one of my two all-time favorite musicals. Since I've seen more different versions of this classic by Jule Styne, Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Laurents than any other tuner, I thought I'd take a couple shots.

As you can see from the photos, everything's coming up Gypsy on West 44th Street, this time with Laura Benanti as Louise, Boyd Gaines as Herbie, and of course, Patti LuPone as Rose.

As for me, I'll be in the audience late next month. And that's no gimmick.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).

Wow, I've never seen a show being loaded in before. That's very cool. You should bring your camera with you more often! I'm looking forward to "Gypsy" too. I loved it last summer at City Center - my first time seeing the show on stage - and I'm excited about seeing it again. Plus, I'll be able to check one more Broadway theater off my list!

Esther, You're right.... I should bring my camera with me more often, but I just don't think about it.

As for the St. James, be prepared to have your legs cramped.... It was very tight when I saw The Producers there.
