It's a nice show, but the TV movie was wretched.

It's a great musical with a wonderful score.
Michael in the Bathroom is an instant classic, and (I'll bet) soon to be an audition staple.
I think this show will do really well regionally.

Adam Guettel's "Millions" is finally getting a reading!
Great movie, and I can't wait to see/hear the whole musical.

I've only heard Queen of Swords, which sounds like a Celine Dion song from 20 years ago.
Looking forward to hearing the whole album this weekend.

The show was ok. Everything with the family should have been cut and it should have been a one act.
The leads should have both won Tonys.
The score is great, but not my favorite JRB.
- West End's Miss Saigon to be released on DVD? Sep 23
2016, 06:25:30 AM
10/24/16 for both DVD and BD (UK only).
I suspect that this will region free (as Fathom's Billy Elliot was), followed later by an actual region 1 release.

William Finn doesn't really want a full trilogy.
He considers Trousers to have been his calling card, like a mission statement if you will.
It has some really good stuff, but it's definitely "early" work.

His sources are wrong most of the time.
And Natasha is generating intense buzz.
Having said that, all three shows are exceptional, and very different.
it's way to early for any predictions. Karl vs. Groban vs. Platt would be some race though.
- Worst ALW show Aug 5
2016, 10:02:44 AM
Personally I can't stand Phantom.
I like almost everything ALW has done, but I never took to Phantom. I even like Love Never Dies quite a bit.
Otherwise only score of his I'm on the fence about is The Likes of Us.

Waitress was good, not great.
But I give the edge to Cats. The revival is energized in a way I've never seen for this show before.

You pay for your ticket, you wear what you want.
Anyone who doesn't like it, that's their problem.
Nothing that smells
Nothing that makes noise

I love Iconis and Golden!
I was just listening to Violet and wondering why she doesn't get more work.

The show was, in my opinion, not nearly as great as everyone says.
It's an important piece of history worth telling, but the book was a mess. And while it had tons of speechifying about the struggle, somehow that never came through in the action.
There as a big scene about how putting in the first ever black love song might cause violence and other physical ramifications. Next thing you know they're singing it and we're on to the next scen

This makes sense. After Eight is basically Grizabella without the introspection.
