Oh public relations....I thought you meant Puerto Rico.

My bad!

I have two things to say about that.

- Sometimes you can spot a bad actor just by looking at a still picture.

- It's good to see Joan Collins working again.

It's the boogie woogie tumor girl from Company B.

Some of these shots are waaaay too close for comfort (AKA-the actors weren't ready for their close-ups).

I do love that Mike Daisy and Jackie Hoffman are buried in there...

Or the fact that the most recent Evita cast is in there.

There's definitely a range of how terrible these pictures are. That picture of Jackie Hoffman is intentionally ridiculous; those community theater Boeing-Boeing promo shots are not.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

I like the ones that go on location to add a sense of "realness" to the shot, then have these cartoon actors in cartoon costumes to go completely against it. I'm not sure what point they're making.

It's fun trying to guess what the hell some of these shows are.

^ THIS!

It's actually killing me that there isn't a key or legend that tells us definitively what show these are.

I'm ashamed to admit I don't know what some of these are. (Maybe, given the quality of the photography, or lack thereof, I shouldn't be all too ashamed.)

Get a load of that Flounder costume!

HA! One of those pics features an actor who was my understudy in San Francisco at Beach Blanket Babylon. Love seeing his adorable little face... even if it is in such an unfortunate photo album...

Those Little Mermaid costumes are better than the original.

And wow, Peter Pan is done a LOT.

Otherwise, I was able to guess about 40%. There is one I thought was Grease, but then I noticed the cups say "Al's" so I'm going with Happy Days.

I liked the Little Mermaid photo.

There seem to be a lot of people rolling their eyes or snarling at a pregnant woman. What's that?

Wait...which one's the pregnant woman?

I actually don't hate the LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA one.

And I also like the Piazza photo.

"I actually don't hate the LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA one."

I could be wrong in the reasoning behind this one, but I think it was posted because part of the statue makes it look like David is excited. And the positioning of it looks quite suggestive.

There are a couple others with possibly pregnant women, but I'm not sure.

The one with the two couples is Clybourne Park.

The second one is The Last Seder.

Oh, God. I know the young African-American woman in that first picture you posted, Reg. The age difference there is 30 years. I know it doesn't look it but he is way too old for her...

I'm just happy to see the Snow Miser is still getting work.
