-Finally? Rehearsals for the long-delayed Spider-Man: The Musical are said to be starting on August 10th. The show is said to be the most expensive in Broadway history.

-The Tony Awards will need a new home next year after 13 years at Radio City. Under consideration: the Apollo, the Beacon, and Madison Square Garden. Too small, too small, and way too big. Where's the Goldilocks house?

-The 2010 cast of Broadway Bares is releasing a CD from the show titled Openings. Get it here. Performers include Jane Krakowski, Tituss Burgess, Euan Morton, Mo Rocca, Christopher Sieber, and many others. Great CD review here. Broadway Bares XX: Stripopoly takes place this Sunday at the Roseland Ballroom. I'll be at the extra-raunchy midnight show!

-Broadway legends Elaine Strich and Bernadette Peters will replace Angela Lansbury and Catherine Zeta-Jones (respectively, of course) when Stephen Sondheim's A Little Night Music resumes on July 13th. The show with the current cast concludes this Sunday.
