They must have filmed this with out an audience, cause it was kept very quiet.
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

Exactly what I was thinking. But thank God they did!

I posted it somewhere a while ago but that at the Induction at Bucks County Playhouse with Miss Lansbury they announced it was filmed.

I have some distant recollection of someone on some board (perhaps not this one) mentioning that s/he had attended a performance in Australia at which they were most definitely filming. I would certainly hope it was recorded with audience reaction. If not, that would be rather odd. But, anyway, yes please! If there's such a big cinema audience for a dreadful community theatre production of Sondheim's least successful musical, surely there's an audience for seeing two acting legends in a beloved and well known play. Would be a nice addition to the banner year Dame Lansubry is having, too.

It was the best theater experience of my life. A truly brilliant production and not just an acting showcase. So glad to hear that it was preserved and now can be seen by people all around the world.

One of the best plays I have seen, a story by Alfred Uhry which turns North/South hatred of each other, into a added Jewish/African American hate, that comes the strongest possible friendship.

it is just great.

I'm still thinking about the South Pacific DVD they were going to release but never did.

Of course I'm talking about the Australian production, otherwise it'd be totally off topic. Not that I'm not satisfied with the Lincoln Center vid, the Australian production which was based on the Lincoln Center production could turn out terrible for all I know. It just kept me hanging. Every now and then I would want to check if it's finally released.

Oh how I hope this happens. Watch how you have to fly to an australian movie theatre to see it though.
