Not sure why they're not on here tonight, but other than the usual dribble from Isherwood at the NY TIMES, the other notices I've been reading online (Hollywood Reporter, Philly Inquirer, Newsday, Theatermania) all seem to be positive.

Congratulations to everyone involved with Broadway's THE BEST MAN.

I think Ishrerwood's brain is constipated.

Isherwood just doesn't like the play.. he gave the last revival in 2000 a negative review for Variety.

Not sure why they're not on here tonight..

Because the majority of the posters on this board are only focused on the musicals and the "divas."

That's why you won't really see any threads on MAGIC/BIRD, either. It's about sports....it goes over their heads.

< Because the majority of the posters on this board are only focused on the musicals and the "divas." >

Figured since ANGELA LANSBURY is (rightly so) held in such high esteem, the notices for THE BEST MAN would generate some interest.

When a show opens, I tend to come here to the message board to find the reviews and reaction all in one place. Last night, I had to search the internet and found it a tad peculiar there was no discussion here.

Off to the OPENING NIGHT of END OF THE RAINBOW later this evening. Considering the strong feelings here about the portrayal of Judy Garland in this play, I would venture it'll be kind of quiet again tonight on this board. Maybe EVITA will be the next show opening to generate discussion?

I didn't see any of these reviews posted, but they're all pretty good!

Can James and Angela be moved to featured? Does James having the final bow at the curtain call cause any problem with that?

Lansbury will obviously be petition to be put in featured category. I'm guessing same will be done with James.

It's a great show! Loved the way they made the theater resemble a convention floor. Larroquette should get a second Tony Award. Liked the whole cast except Butler. Thought she was a little obvious.

Entertainment Weekly gave the show a "B" in case no one saw the review.
