Anyways, I actually was skeptical about a truly deaf Quasi and someone else doing his singing voice and merely how that would work and/or read...I was quite intrigued just from what I said in that video
I don't think there is any creative team that could have made Love Never Dies truly work. The lesson they should have learned from Prince and his team and their work on the original was that there was absolutely no reason to revisit these characters.
According to the Production Contract a replacement (whether an internal promotion or someone new to the production) must be contracted and begin performances no later than two weeks after an actor leaves.

They make sense to tour to cities that couldn't handle the size and load in time of the originals but Les Miz and especially Phantom just show how brilliant the originals were and how those productions largely helped make the shows work on stage. We won't even get into the animosity directors like Nunn and Prince have had with these productions borrowing without credit elements from th
As a long running hit that has recouped it is unlikely that Kinky Boots would post a sudden closing notice. When they do post their notice I would be willing to bet that it will still give a long enough period for them to do a big "final weeks/months" ad campaign.
Their producers also just recently shelled out some pretty big bucks to do a final put in rehearsal with the entire orchestra. You don't spend that kind of money on a put in rehe
"Shown" is the past participle which combines with "have" to make the present perfect tense. If you were using "showed" it would just be "I showed you." "Have showed," or the contraction "I've showed," is grammatically incorrect (if that's what was said).

Roaming charges or not, there is free wi-fi all over this city. Go to any Starbucks, McDonalds, or any of the big chain retail stores. It's not hard to check your email without accessing your data plan here in NYC.
I didn't see her in Aida (only saw the tour), but I do remember seeing her in the original cast of The Lion King. Her "Shadowland" was thrilling in a way I haven't experienced with the couple of other Nalas that I've seen, and brought about the same kinds of chills that I got watching this performance.
I still wish that The Addams Family had been an adaptation of the first film with Marc Shaiman expanding the work he did on the film score. His haunting waltz that he composed for Gomez and Morticia leading into "The Mamushka" would have made a wonderful opening to Act 2.
Producers also have to take into account the weekly running costs. It's great to think that a show may have played longer in a smaller theatre, but it may not have been the same show. Say Side Show, for example, had a weekly running cost of $650,000 (just a random example, I don't know what their weekly costs actually were). They actually could not afford to go into a smaller theatre like the Booth, which under its past few tenants seems to have had a weekly gross potent
A show being completely frozen is kind of a myth. Any long running show, especially, will always see minor changes and tweaks as original cast members depart and new ones are brought in.
For direction and choreography it may have to do with what the replacement is capable of (Chicago is a great example of this, as they have several versions of the choreography for Roxie depending on the skill of the actress playing the part). Sometimes it may be some bi
