Thanks for posting the link Lizzie, I was just boarding an aircraft when I saw the story. Had no idea this had been announced earlier, I'm with you really excited to see this, hope it's a huge hit for them. Wonder if Caroline O'Connor will rejoin the cast as well?
Maria Mercedes is the Australian production of Sunset, she was everything the Deborah Byrne wasn't, the acting , singing superb. Up till seeing Glenn Close a couple of weeks ago Maria was the best Norma I had ever seen.
Would it have to be Sunset, Close is giving a once in a lifetime performance..it's worth the price of admission for that single moment when the spot light catches her just before As If We Never Said Goodbye
See the problem is , if the highlight of the show is still the Elton John number and she still doesn't have an 11 o'clock number, I one thing people walk out remembering is the Elton John number, cause that number and the fish at the start is really the only memorable thing
I would rather see a musical of Easy A or Edge of Seventeen, I think the problem I had with Mean Girls is it wasn't nasty enough, started out a little than just turned into any other by the numbers teenage movie.
Well that turned out to be a joy of show, 100 heartfelt minutes, that celebrated life to the fullest. Funny, touching, sad and life affirming, at the end the standing ovation started as the lights went down ( this one well deserved ) Had the pleasure of meeting the writer after the show. It should and will be a huge hit
I have been seeing shows for over 35 years both in Australia, London, New York and what I saw this afternoon ranks as one of the greatest performances ever. Close was stunning, unhinged, magnificent and in command whenever she appeared on stage .
i don't cry at shows, but that moment in "Never Said Goodbye" when the spotlight first catches her was heartbreaking.
Grabbed a ticket about four minutes after it started ( was looking for the evening show instead ) and wa
