I've got to disagree. We went last night (12/1) to one of the preview shows. There were certainly PARTS of this musical that were wonderful. However, there is still much work to be done. #1: The story is not clear; exactly what is the goal of this story? Is it Alice finding her "inner child"; finding her daughter; or reconciling with Jack? Pick one and then move the story along. #2: all of the numbers went too long; usually only by 30 seconds or so, but too long. #3: Although the costumes were fantastic, they were a bit too "Wicked"-ish #4: The Mad Hatter needs to be cut; the song, style, costumes did NOT fit into the Wonderland idea. The story doesn't need such a bad guy nor does it need the space age styling of the costuming. The story would move along better without all the crap from this substory #5: Some of the lyrics are really lazy and sound like freshman english class rhymes. C'mon guys! #6: Think about the "door" theme. Right now each of the numbers at the doors (El Gato, the caterpillar, etc) could happen in any random order. They should build on each preceding one. I would hope the writer can really improve what is a good beginning. I look forward to seeing the final production in the future.

I first saw and met Brian Russell at Nashville Children's Theatre twenty years ago.. He continues to amaze and delight me with his incredible transformations. Oh, yea, that's called acting. I've almost know Jeff as long. So happy to read you again!!!!

I agree. It's time to move on, ABC. You knew enough to invite him in the first place---he's a kid. Give him a break. All of YOUR loyal viewers are so disappointed. We were really looking forward to seeing Lambert at both of the canceled events. You have made your point, and he has as much as said he will not follow that same route again. Please--- reconsider.

When I listened to the cd I tried to imagine the scenes and costumes...then I got to see it and hear it and I was totally enthralled with it all! The subtle humor was an added bonus! I will recommend it to everyone!

I can say right that I will never watch anything on ABC again. I am so angry about how Adam is being treated by them. I saw the AMA's and I saw what Janet Jackson did with her male dancer when she opened the show a little after 8:00pm, also not too long after that when Rihanna performed there was a gunshot and it looked like she was pointing a gun at her head. I don't see why this is OK, and what Adam did is not. He was not on until almost 11:00 pm. Good bye ABC. I don't need to watch anything on your channel anymore!

Jeff Skowron Stars in The Old Globe's HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS, 11/21 - 12/27 2009/11/21
Posted: 12/3/2009
Just saw the "Grinch" at the Old Globe. We knew it would be a great show and a good way to start the Christmas season. But I must say, Jeff Skowron as the Grinch was fantastic!! His facial expressions, physical comedy and wonderful voice shined all night long. We had a blast. I highly recommend you see this performance. Everyone did a great job!!!

its just not right at all.. Adam is a sweet man, he does not deserve this dissing him. I wish i could help him somehow. I hope he really gets poetic justice for all the crap that he has had to endure thanks to some stupid simple minded idiots.

Director John Madden Eyes Helming Duties for 'MY FAIR LADY' Film 2009/11/30
Posted: 12/3/2009
John Madden who directed SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE-directing MY FAIR LADY? May I give him a suggestion of Henry Higgins's mother? Please consider Julie Andrews-wouldn't it BE LOVERLY? After all Julie DID the Broadway/London productions. She played Eliza. And this would make up for NOT doing the movie in 1964. And recently, I saw the movie-again. I COULD see Julie playing Mrs. Higgins.

People...this is not about Adam Lambert anymore.... THE BIG BROTHER is showing his ugly face again, like in obscure times in the history of USA. Don't let that happen!
