This has been one busy week. I paid my taxes, the Boston Marathon bombers did their heinous work and were either killed or apprehended, a fertilizer factory blew up in Texas, six Broadway shows opened of which I saw three, Mamma Mia! announced it was moving to the Broadhurst, there was speculation that Rocky would take its place at the Winter Garden, Bullets Over Broadway confirmed for the St. James for next spring.
In addition, Johnny Depp revealed he would love to play Carol Channing. Now that I could see. Depp has played larger-than-life characters like Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Carribbean films and a drag queen named Bon Bon in Before Night Falls.
Speaking of Channing, the National Asian Artists Project will present a staged reading of Hello, Dolly! on April 29 and May 6 at the Signature Theatre Center.
