For what's it's worth, I saw the original Broadway productions of both A CHORUS LINE and CHICAGO a handful of times back in the Summer of 1975. I was 10 years old. Revisiting the shows later I discovered that my 10 year old self only took in what he knew at the time. All sexual references and language went right over my head. Plus, I was a 70s kid with culturally diverse parents so I had already been seeing Rated R films with nudity and language so adult materi
I agree. With her return to television in Ryan Murphy's highly anticipated mini-series FEUD: Bette & Joan, Ms. Davis' career resurrection is in full swing again and she'll do just fine. Heck, maybe Ms. Crawford will sub for her on occasion as Dolly Levi Gallagher.
Glenn co-hosted the 1995 Tony Awards with Nathan Lane and Gregory Hines the year she won for SUNSET BLVD. After the opening song was performed ("On Broadway" by the cast of SMOKEY JOE'S CAFÉ, Norma's 17-ton mansion set floated down and remained on the stage the entire show so presenters made their entrances from different sections of the mansion.

The left-side section of the scaffolding set is Norma's home. Though she walks across the upper tier on the scaffolding several times, she descends and all of her scenes gravitate to the left staircase.

Holy ph**kballs these high school kids are quite fantastic! I just took a quick glance just for sh*ts and giggles and literally got sucked into the first Joe/Norma scene. Their delivery is quite impressive. Definitely planning on watching the entire thing. Ignore the overcrowded ensemble sequences (what a mess!) and the height differences but the regular scenes are quite impressive.
Enough with this misconception! Glenn only wears maybe a handful of her original costumes and even those are slighted modified. Many of the costumes are redesigned - dresses in the original now redesigned as pant suits. A few are totally missing including this fabulous leopard print gown that was breathtaking in the original production. At least her "As If We Never Said Goodbye" costume is in its full glory.
