Did anyone go to first preview tonight or going to see the show soon? I'm excited to hear thoughts on it.

Saw it last eve and found the show too overly produced. Too much going on. Too much dialogue and no songs fully done.

Working class audience, as they keep telling you, but will they pay 80 after previews. Probably not.

I just didn't care about the show at all watching it, no real story and unless you connect with the social side of the show you won't find anything else, I ended up hating everyone of the characters on stage!
