Replacing Tony Sheldon's Bernadette. I was going to post this tomorrow, but I couldn't wait!















































Because tomorrow, posts like this are too obvious...

I think this is the second time i have fallen for one of Blaxx's April Fools jokes... I still remember the one about Phantom closing (I had a heart attack).

Wow that really was a good one! I think because I can't believe it's April already so I had no reason to doubt it!

God, what stupidity. April Fools is the worst.
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

Tony Sheldon told me at the stage door that foreign tourists think his airbrushed self on the new posters is Bette Midler and they are very disappointed when it is him. lol

Totally fell for it. To be fair, it isn't April yet.

Yes, I did mention that posting this tomorrow is too obvious.

When I first read the title I believed it because I thought it was a "one-night" thing like Million Dollar Quartet has done w/ someone coming in to perform after the show. Then when I saw the actual text of the thread I realized what it was
