Check your spelling and punctuation...

I'm assuming it is the typos in your last few posts that Clyde is talking about and how the last sentence in this thread makes little sense. :P

Really excited to see this cast...Ciara R is going to be a force to be reckoned with, and, while I'm not super familiar with him, from the bits and pieces I've seen, I think this role is a really good fit for Kyle DM.
Also, just wondering, has it been discussed yet that Ciara graduated from college less than a year ago?? It's kinda crazy to think of the fact that she's done two broadway shows (including this one) in her first year living in New York...she has definitely got talent.

Your excitement came across--to hell with your spelling and punctuation--it's wonderful to see such enthuasiasm. It's people like you that keep theatre alive.
Edit--my turn for a spelling mistake--oops!

Enthusiasm doesn't keep theatre alive, attendance does.

And ethan, your first post is edited but you still don't know the difference between there and their.

I think they will be great- especially Ciara. I think it takes big balls to be the second after Petina (I feel the same way about who replaces Billy Porter in Kinky) - it is always a challenge to be the second, because you are following right in the original's footsteps.

they will probably be in the show until August 31 for when the show is contracted through but will probably extend!

The show isn't "contracted" through August, thats just when tickets are on sale through....

She looks a little like Eartha Kitt there. Kyle Dean Massey looks weird- I think it's his hair or something

Ciara looks a lot like Tisha Campbell. Why does Kyle have to look confused all the time. ugh.

Kyle Dean was absolutely incredible. Ciara started off a little tentative IMO but really gained confidence/momentum as the show went on and I ended up being impressed by her. The adorable new dog almost didn't come out when he was called, guess first night nerves got to him!

Kyle Dean looks really old in the pictures from the curtain call. I mean, not like ancient, just like a full grown man as a opposed to what I would picture Pippin as- late teens, early twenties, finding his place in the world. But it could just be the photos.

I agree. He looks too old for this role.

It remind me of SNL's sketch about HBO's Girls where the Lena Dunham character says she's 24 and Tina Fey says, "WTF?! You're 24?! Get your act together! Why do you have all these problems at your age?! Grow up!"

That's what the leading player and the audience should be saying to Kyle Dean Massey's Pippin. Would've been awesome if they had gotten an unknown actor.

Seems like the should have the leading player tell Pippin that he is almost too old to play the part, like she does to Catherine. LOL
