The spring Broadway season is in full swing as the last remaining new shows are now all in previews (with the exception of the upcoming Rascals concert engagement Once Upon a Dream). Bette Midler and Alan Cumming join fellow solo-show stars Holland Taylor and Fiona Shaw as their respective plays I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers and Macbeth began their runs. Both shows played to healthy crowds with I'll Eat You Last filling the Booth Theatre to 99.96% capacity for its first weekend of shows. The dynamic duo of Jekyll & Hyde are stirring up trouble on Broadway again as the Constantine Maroulis and Deborah Cox-led revival of the musical also began previews.
