Brody Fosse, yes I am aware of that. Most face make-up had a greenish cast to them because it made the black and white flesh tones look a lot better. It is just startling to see the actual set in the colors they used.
Having read this entire threat, people maturely answered you original question with some, I would say, straight forward and practical advice. All of it good. There was no being rude or bullying. If you are going to get into theatre you have to have a thick skin. It is best to listen to people who offer advise from experience. It might very well help you avoid disappointment and hurt down the road. LISTEN to the Cast recording, get an idea for yourself of your interpretation of the charac

There might have been a few who did the opening night thing but the papers would not have been available till the wee hours.<
