WHO Tyne Daly

THE DEAL Daly will return to Broadway in "Mothers and Sons," a new play by Terrence McNally. The Tony Award winner ("Gypsy") will star as a mother paying a visit to her late son's lover in the play, which will begin previews in February at the Golden Theatre. Another new McNally work, "And Away We Go," just opened Off-Broadway at the Pearl Theatre Company.

 

THE SHOW "Pippin"

THE DEAL The Broadway smash that won multiple Tony Awards, including best musical revival, best actress and best director, has officially recouped its capitalization costs of $8.5 million. Last week, the show grossed just more than $1 million over eight performances at the Music Box Theatre.

 

THE SHOW "Fun Home"

THE DEAL The hit Off-Broadway musical has extended its run at the Public Theater for the fourth time and will play through Jan. 12. But in a strange turn of events, Alexandra Socha, who scored much praise from critics for her performance as Medium Alison, has left the show for personal reasons and has been replaced by understudy Emily Skeggs. Socha did take part in the recording of the cast album.

 

THE SHOW "The Rascals: Once Upon a Dream"

THE DEAL The encore Broadway engagement of the rock concert that had a short run over the summer and was set to play the Marquis Theatre from Saturday through Jan. 5 has been canceled, allegedly because of scheduling conflicts with Steve Van Zandt, the show's director, writer and producer.
