So any thoughts on the edits?

For anyone who saw the Encores production, do you remember the running time?

Yup, it was just announced that it'll only be one act. Really shocked.

People are shocked by this? I assumed that it would be the Encores version when Roundabout announced it.

I enjoyed the Encores version, but this is disappoint to hear, I would have liked it to be more. I do hope they plan to fully stage it, not just a concert version like they did at City Center.

Oh GOD. Giving VIOLET the Chicago treatment would be an absolute travesty. Though I doubt that's what's happening.

Don't forget the Gypsy treatment.

What specific GYPSY treatment are you referring to? I can think of about 3 different travesties...

When they pretty much retained the staging from the Encores production and had every scene take place in front of a white drop.

"Someone took an axe to Violet?"

I just fell out of me chair!

So obvious, yet still so funny.

Dear me. I thought this was about Violet getting circumcised. That would be distasteful, wouldn't it?
