Now that's the kind of manly man I was talking about in the other thread.

Have mercy!

Met him at stage door at Scandalous and despite the cold, he came out without a coat. Darn those investors for closing the show before the summer!

Why didn't we think of him in the other thread?!? Seriously, after Scandalous, how could we forget? I'm ashamed of myself right now.

Cats- I feel the same way!

Yes, this casting will do. Thanks Rando!

I completely forgot about him also. I saw his "talents" in "Saving Aimee" in Seattle, and he did the "Titanic" concert here too in what I remember a "wife beater" for most of the show. I was so hung up on the Matt Bomer idea. I think Ed is a good choice. He has a great voice, and a "Super-Man"ly physique. Too bad I won't be able to catch this production, so I too hope that this gets recorded, with a bunch of pictures in the booklet.

I really hope this gets recorded too, but I feel like our luck has run out with Encores cast recordings. Last season was an overflow of Encores cast recordings and now this season will probably be a dry spell.

Although it would be nice, I can't imagine there's enough of a market for additional recordings of these three shows to meet expenses, let alone show profit (particularly as they're all already really well represented on disc).

Easy for me to say, I know, since I'll see 'em.

I totally thought of him and thought I brought him up in the other thread, but I guess I didn't!

He certainly warmed me on a cold night seeing "Scandalous."

I recall him coming off a bit fem in Scandalous but maybe that was a character choice?

And yet again, someone who runs around yelling at people for being negative writes something negative about someone.

Fem is negative? Only if you are a homophobe which I assume you are not. I just question whether or not the performance I saw at Scandalous was a character choice or of the Sarah Jessica Parker variety, when one just "acts" their own voice and personality in every single role. I assume he's masculine enough to play Superman, and I wish him well. But if the performance I saw in Scandalous leaks into City Center, it might be somewhat difficult to buy.

No, but it's a negative thing to say in the context you said it in. According to you, anyone who posts anything other than something absolutely positive is in the wrong, yet you seem to constantly go against that. Just pointing out a hypocrite when I see one.

Incorrect. It seems you just like to go looking for fights. I was just stating a legit opinion. The guy is cast to play Superman, after all, one of the most hyper-masculine figures in comic book history.

Hyper-masculine? The dude is wearing tights with his underwear on the outside... Superman is practically a drag queen.

I've said horrible things, and Matt still loves me. He's cool, Jordy, I swear! You must have caught him on an off-day. (You have them, too, admit it, and so do I.)

I think you're both great, so please don't fight on BWW.

Unless it's over house seats to see this show. Then all bets are off, and may the best (super) man win!

Thanks, Best, and apologies, Jordan. And now back to our regularly scheduled program.

If it could not be Cheyenne Watts is a great choice.

I will need to get tickets to what will be my first Encores as I want to see their take on it and compare it to the original.

I can see them doing much flying but we shall see
