    Unfortunately, this was one of my least favorite shows of the season.

    It's so incredibly dull and boring from start to finish.  The performances came across as amateurish at best (save for the pros: Mary Beth Peil, Caroline O'Connor, and John Bolton, who were all fine but have all been much better - with much better material).  Ramin is totally wasted in an underwritten, thankless, and ultimately unnecessary and pointless role.

    I didn't like the sets - thou

    I loved this show so much.

    It takes about 20 minutes to really get into gear, but I think that's just the nature of the plot.  I loved the score, the book, the orchestrations, the sets...  The direction is total genius and Andy Karl is brilliant.  It's my favorite new musical of this season (so far).

    Is it worse than ADDAMS FAMILY...?

  • HELLO, DOLLY! Previews  Mar 29 2017, 12:43:34 PM

    Pretty sure it's just because Wednesday matinees aren't in as high-demand as evening or weekend performances.

  • SWEAT Reviews  Mar 26 2017, 10:15:58 PM

    After SIGNIFICANT OTHER, this is the second show this season that made a particularly risky transfer on the strength of an Isherwood rave - only to get a mixed review, post-transfer, from Brantley. 

    The third is INDECENT. Should be interesting to see what he has to say about that one.

    My money's on Midler, Ebersole, LuPone, Noblezada, and Osnes.

  • THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG Previews  Mar 17 2017, 11:27:19 AM

    The thing about farces is that they need to build in order to work.  They should get more and more ridiculous and fast-paced as the show goes on.  The problem with THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG is that it starts at 10 and has nowhere to go from there.  

    The jokes get tired very quickly and the show could easily be an hour with no intermission.  It's all well-executed enough and the actors are all very game, but the shtick gets old after thirty minutes.

  • GROUNDHOG DAY Previews  Mar 16 2017, 10:16:25 PM

    Shit happens. Glad they handled it well by inviting everyone to come back. 

  • HELLO, DOLLY! Previews  Mar 15 2017, 11:13:28 PM

    How was Jen Simard?

    Did the title number stop the show? How is the choreography? 

  • HELLO, DOLLY! Previews  Mar 14 2017, 05:25:02 PM

    Odd that they haven't yet released a photo of the cover of the Playbill, no?

  • COME FROM AWAY Previews  Mar 12 2017, 10:07:02 PM

     The only comps during previews were for the creative team in the last row of the orchestra.  

    Well... I attended on a comp and I am neither a critic, nor am I on the show's creative team. So this is not accurate.

    See, I loved ONCE. 

    COME FROM AWAY, not so much.

    Any other reports on this?

  • COME FROM AWAY Previews  Mar 11 2017, 01:04:14 PM

    Sabrelady, chill out.  I do know for certain that the performance I attended was highly papered.  It was a press performance and the producers wanted an enthusiastic audience.  I can't speak for other performances, but yes, the show I attended was, in fact, highly papered.

    As for the direction, for me, the way Ashley handled the numerous characters and storylines was clueless.  I found it confusing, busy, and unfocused.  C

  • COME FROM AWAY Previews  Mar 11 2017, 12:04:50 PM

    I have no idea what show I saw, but I guess I'm in the minority - I disliked it.  A lot.

    An incredibly monotonous score, weak performances, clueless direction, no dramatic tension at all.  I'm all for original musicals, but this one was rough.  Jenn does sound fantastic during her solo - but the song is trite and unmemorable.  

    Nothing about the show resonated with me emotionally either - none of the stories or characters were developed

  • THE PRICE Previews  Mar 4 2017, 05:08:11 PM

    I thought this was a bore, through and through.  The night I went, every single actor had trouble remembering their lines.  Each of them must have stumbled over at least ten lines throughout the night. I didn't like any of the performances - not even Tony Shalhoub, who I usually love.  DeVito's accent is...something else.  Hecht is doing the same thing we've seen her done a million times and Ruffalo came across as so incredibly bland and unenthused,&n

    Sorry if this has already been discussed, but how are the seats in the last few rows of the balcony?  Is the view ok?

  • What's Going to Win Best Musical?  Feb 14 2017, 10:58:51 AM

    EVAN HANSEN has the momentum right now, but I think a lot of people are underestimating GROUNDHOG DAY.
