I imagine she wants to rest her body and voice for the Wicked labs. I don't know if they've added stuff but that's a tough song to sing and rehearse for weeks and she has a lot of people to impress if she wants to keep on with the show.

I like them somewhat but they go off on way too many tangents and basically say on the tangent longer than the actual musical they're supposed to talk about. They also get facts wrong pretty often. I never email/tweet corrections because I'm not that guy, but I am the guy who screams "No, it was LANIE KAZAN!!"
Most shows will for a donation to BCEFA (the amount depends on the show, $20-50 usually) so you'd need to send proof of donation and a self addressed stamped envelope for them to return the playbill to you.
Honestly you could just walk by the theatre during walk out, walk inside and pick one up someone left on the bar on their way out. I used to work at the Palace and people left those cups there by the dozens. If you want to see it again, by all means do, but you honestly don't have to.
Happy to hear they're not balcony. When I tried to rush something there a couple of years ago I'd be straight forward and tell the box office if they were balcony I wouldn't buy them. They laughed and gave me side orchestra and said they didn't blame me.
The only thing I really want changed desperately is for them to stage the songs to be show-stoppers. Rich Man's Frug, Rhythm of Life, and I'm a Brass Band should be big brassy numbers, not 3 people dancing the same two steps over and over in circles.
I completely agree. It also seemed like all modern references were already dated. I even feel like some things the 1973 characters said seemed a bit modern (but I'm not an expert on the etymology of drag queens saying "shady bitch".
It didn't help the majority of the cast kept going off key in their solos. The only character I really felt anything for was Dale, expertly played by Ben Mayne.
" And then you get the people who will probably demand to go in because they are there and shouldn't have to travel further, even though they are wrong. I work in retail, I see this all the time."
This. People will show up late to the wrong theatre and insist they're right. It may not be hundreds nightly but I can see people screaming already. Not to mention the people who will claim they bought a ticket to see cast A but really bought cast B
I agree, but didn't fine Colbie to be that stand out. I kept thinking someone like Nina Arianda would have a feast with that part while Colbie was just getting the on the page laughs. The audience did respond the best to her so I must be the odd man out.
Kristine Nielson is, as always, a comic genius and makes the most out of her part.
I think it was a solid first preview. Comedies like this only get better with audiences and I have a feeling everyone will grow and find
