Downstage Dish almost can't believe it - "Bombshell" actually opened on Broadway!
That's not to say the much-anticipated big night went off without a hitch. We hear Eileen Rand's opening night fete exploded in a memorable fashion. Jimmy Collins has been grabbing more than his share of attention these days, and for all the wrong reasons. Suffice it to say, getting thrown out of a party by a livid Rand - dripping wet, no less - is one of the more unorthodox ways to court a career in the theater, in our estimation.
Houston and Levitt should feel vindicated by their big opening and everyone at Act Break can't help but feel the sages at The New York Times came down somewhat harshly on Tom's direction of "Bombshell." The show is (half) his baby, after all, and he should be trusted to make decisions in its best interest.
But if there were murmurs before, it's clear the question everyone's asking now is: Are Houston and Levitt still on the same page as collaborators?
