THE SHOW “Terms of My Surrender”
THE DEAL Michael Moore tweeted that there are no plans to film his Broadway show, nor does he intend to take it on a national tour. “Appearing only in New York on the stage for the next 8 wks. Worth the trip! U all can crash on my couch!” Moore added. Last year, the filmmaker released his pre-election film, “Michael Moore in TrumpLand,” which was essentially a recording of him performing at an Ohio theater.
THE SHOW “Game of Thrones: The Rock Musical — An Unauthorized Parody”
THE DEAL Just in case you’re already going through “Game of Thrones” withdrawal, this live musical parody (which is not affiliated with or endorsed by HBO) will play a limited run at Off-Broadway’s Jerry Orbach Theatre in October. It promises to have original songs and tap-dancing direwolves. The New York run follows an engagement in San Diego during Comic-Con. Steven Christopher Parker and Steven Brandon, the duo behind it, have previously done “Lost: The Musical” and “Once Upon a Time: The Rock Opera.”
THE SHOW Fringe Encore Series
THE DEAL There may not have been a Fringe Festival in New York this summer, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be a Fringe Encores Series. Customarily, the series brings back shows that premiered as part of the Fringe Festival for short runs. This year, instead, it will feature shows from other fringe festivals including those in Hollywood and Edinburgh. The series will be staged at the SoHo Playhouse in September and October.
THE SHOW “Newsies”
THE DEAL The musical, which ran on Broadway from March 2012 to August 2014, will be available for video streaming on Netflix beginning Tuesday, Entertainment Weekly reports. A live recording of “Newsies” was shot while the musical’s national tour was playing in Los Angeles and then screened in movie theaters. Jeremy Jordan returned to the role of Jack Kelly for the recording.
