Sondheim has been notorious for being lazy and slow in getting projects done (by his own admission). I think they need to announce dates so he's forced to finish it instead of a 4 year period of doing labs every 6 months. We need this!!! lol

Morrible: How many times do we have to go through this? Witchin' does not put food on the table. Witchin' does not pay the bills. Witchin' is no guarantee to a future. even if you have got talent.
