    BTW, I'm pretty sure one of the stuffiest stuffed shirts from over there is a regular on here. I think he's in this thread, too!

    I used to post over there way back when. I seemed to be the only one who posted freely, with a sense of humor and what came naturally. I don't think I was popular. Finally, I got sick of the lack of humor and the proliferation of stuffed shirts, and being chastised by the moderator -  Ann? I asked to have my account deleted and never returned, even to read it.

    Exactly-I didn't see her on stage. I'm criticizing what I did see.

  • GYPSY on PBS  Nov 12 2016, 09:07:41 AM

    I didn't enjoy it at all. Mainly because of Staunton. After a few minutes of watching her emoting, making frightening faces and spastic arm movements, I googled her and learned that she won awards for this performance. I wondered why. Her rendition of Rose was that of a person on the edge of insanity to be scared of.

    Nothing else in the production was remarkable to me. I know the three ladies of vaudeville are supposed to be raw, but these were grotesque.

    Sabrelady, thanks so much for your comments. Nice to read first thing in the morning! I love sounding off on issues but I become sour on the site for reasons I won't even mention. We'll see.

    Chi fan - I also loved the original  UK soudtrack/score/album/OCR, (take your pick). At one point I had every incarnation of the music available. Never saw that stage version, but didn't enjoy the broadway production.

    RHPS was so important in my life that I wouldn't wast

    lol, I thought I did too, when I saw the trailer of her singing it. But I changed my mind after seeing it again. oy

    "I'm personally grossed out by close-ups of body parts (I also despise hearing people chew/slurp/eat in food commercials), so I could only stand to look at the lips in the original for about two seconds, though I can understand why it worked theoretically." 

    hmm, how long was that usherette singing? seemed like an hour. I had a hard time looking at the closeups of her lipstick outside her lip line and teeth for that long. Her mouth is what bothered me the most a

     I thought Science Fiction was long and drawn out, and boring. Remembering back to the first time I saw the original film, and the second those lips appeared on the screen, I was hooked.

    Thanks Artman. I don't post here any more, but when I read the RHPS thread, a topic which is close to my heart, I had to jump in.

    "and then yes it did develop a cult following, mainly by people who loved to make fun of it."

    Incorrect, Patash. The cult following was made up of those of us for whom the message of the film resonated, and NOT to make fun of because it was "so bad."

    the message of RH was to be who you are and want to be. Those of us who felt outside the norm of conventional society, whether it was because we were LGBT, fat, skinny, shy, ugly, short, tall, artistic, you get t

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 13 2016, 03:18:18 PM

    "I think its cool and expected that people come on to document how wonderful he is. However, this does not negate other people's experience of the person. My post had nothing to do with the Rosie nonsense. I wasn't referencing that. Just because someone was lovely and thoughtful to you, doesn't mean they didn't treat someone else poorly or were problematic."

    If this is directed towards me, I'm sorry Betty but you're all off. Not once in any w

    I like the new teaser, it had the right attitude.

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 12 2016, 01:20:22 PM

    I had a conversation about that whole scenario with Taboo one time when I ran into Raul. Without going into details, I got the impression that he became quite emotional over how the producing of the show was going with Rosie on board, and that's why he walked out that time.

    Speaking of emotional, here's an anecdote. It was shortly after 9/11, which affected Raul very deeply. The theater was closed for a few performances, but one night when we resumed with Tick Tick Boom, Ra

  • Will RAUL ESPARZA Ever Return to Broadway?  Jul 12 2016, 12:22:35 PM

    I want to defend Raul because I love him so much. After first becoming aware of him in Rocky Horror, where he hit notes that didn't even exist, I was hooked. You can imagine my excitement when he starred in Tick Tick Boom, at the theater I was managing. Not  only did I get to see him act and hear him sing every night, I got to know him personally. He was the most unaffected and un-drama driven person to know.

    IMO he's got the best voice on Broadway. Ever hear him do Petrif

    "we've probably all seen the original film (it's on Netflix if you haven't) but it isn't really relevant to the conversation."

    It is to me.

  • HAIRSPRAY is next NBC Musical...  Jul 11 2016, 02:46:31 PM

    I can't believe no one has commented on the original film. Am I the only one here who saw it?

  • HAIRSPRAY is next NBC Musical...  Jul 11 2016, 11:44:05 AM

    This may turn out better than the Travolta film, which I thought was bad, but the original film with Divine and Ricki Lake was great.

    ^ I'm wondering how she got in the door, let alone shown to her seat, with pizza.
