I find it distatseful to attack someone who finds a dress rehearsal amazing and says so.
Pull the stick out or it will become infected.

"I find it distatseful to attack someone who finds a dress rehearsal amazing and says so.

Keep yapping about things that aren't supposed to be yapped about and I'm sure one would find themselves invited to many fewer of these special events.

I would, however, love to hear from anyone seeing the tonight what kind of shape it's in. :)

Entertainment Weekly did an article about the Glass Slippers being designed for the show.

I figured I would post this here, but I stopped by the box office to see if they were doing any rush tickets for tonight and the box office woman told that they weren't. She said they would be on weekdays only (although she then said Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday...), I think 1 per ID, and that we'd have to make a line for them but that we weren't guaranteed to get them if the show is sold out? She didn't tell me what time though, if they were sold when the BO opened or later.

So with all of the talk about reporting on an invited dress, is anyone actually going to the first preview tonight who'll be able to give us a full account?

I think there must have been some tech issues because the posting of that photo was a 10:04. I doubt the first act was two hours. I may be wrong but it's surely not a three hour show. I think.

Unless they took the pics and posted it after the show, I guess... Looks nice...

They don't make them like this anymore.

I think it's silly to say that about a show with an entirely new book and interpolated songs.

I'm surprised that we don't have a more detailed report about this yet.

"Impossible things are happening every day."

That's what Oscar Hammerstein told us.

But I'm sure that neither he nor Richard Rodgers could have ever thought it possible to transform their beautiul classic into a bloated, misguided, lame social tract.

But it's possible.

This show bills itself as "Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella." Then what was the other one, I'd like to know.

As to be expected, the interpolated songs don't mix well with the original ones. They protract, rather than add.

The design struck me as none too attractive. Fairly forlorn. The costumes are a mixed bag, some nice ones, others less so. There were a few deft visual effects, and a chase through the woods had the requisite magic lacking elsewhere.
Anachronistic jokes, natch.

The two leads did a very good job.

I'm very sorry they cut out the wonderful wedding processional. An unfortunate choice, among so many others here.

The show ended at about 10:50.
