2007, 02:42:29 PM It really doesn't feel like 3.5 hours, I promise. I saw it twice and would see it again if I could in New York. The acting and writing is so mesmerizing that it's impossible to look away or be bored.

Too much information?
I can't possibly imagine a stage production of it, though. To me, it's a very cinematic story, just as Moulin Rouge is, which also should not be onstage.
