I remember this show very well I saw Tyne in it 5x (including the comeback at the marquis where I sat next to some of the "directors" who were talking and writing what she Tyne was doing right and wrong and had to tell them to shut up) Tyne was amazing one of the best performances I have ever seen. When Linda took over originally I thought great choice...when I went to see it she was just bad..her voice was bad her strange irish accent was very odd...and it felt like the
VintageSnarker I don't agree because adding 5 to 8 inches on the top of your head can be avoided.. Being taller than the person behind you is not avoidable....It might as well have been a beehive for the gentleman who sat behind her ..he was short had she had the hair down he would have seen fine...just my opinion!!! back in the 80s in London a older woman tapped me on the shoulders and said "your hair is in my way...it was short but spiked up, so I always remember that..
Saturday night I was at Hello Dolly and I could not believe the way people act now in theaters.
a family of 7 were behind me and before the show started the two boys actually started throwing punches at each other and the Mom< who instigated it seemed to think it was funny, the little girl was whining about not being able to see so I suggested to get booster seats...which caused another "crisis" the poor little girls bum hurts...again Mom made a snide remark...and the girl
I went Saturday night row M-10/12/14 views were fine don't miss anything...the show was amazing Bette was Bette and killed it and I have never smiled so much during a show...amazing. David Hyde Pierce was just as good as were the supporting charactes..I LOVE Kate Baldwins voice ..started off low and boom hit every not possible..so underrated amazing..the colors and sets ..this show is a 10 plus 10 it is so good...now my only complaints...the audience...WHY WOULD YOU WEAR YOUR
I saw this on Saturday night it was still an amazing night in the theater...(I do admit I do miss the sets) but the cast makes up for the lack of sets...All the leads were fantastic in my opinion /Joe and Betty were the best I have seen and I last night was the 7th time I have seen this show. Having seen Glenn 20 years ago in this and I always said she started off crazy and there was no where to go but crazy..now she slowly decends into hell...(very much like the Betty Buckley per
Saw her last Wednesday night. She was quite good. for her first night...I have seen Brook Shields/Melanie Griffith -who was really fun- / Belle Calloway ..the best/ Bebe as Roxie- strange//Bianca and also /Maria Friedman in London....Mel doesn't have a strong voice at all which is ok for Roxie , but she harmonized really well...she was funny and cute and also got all the laughs...her accent is still there which is funny...I liked her and the show looked good for such
I actually saw Melanie Griffin and to be honest I thought she was pretty on point as the character. her voice was baby talkish ...like Gwens was so I didn't think it was bad. I have seen it 7 times and she was as good as all the others I have seen....they are all a little bit different but I have liked them all... The show is not a tourist trap ...it still has a great score and a funny/ provocative story...love CHICAGO
I don't know when you saw the show but she was certainly not the weak link on Saturday night..Sae was wonderful, sexy , warm and quite funny....As far as Dreamgirls go..she had never acted in her life..and to give the performance she gave takes more than good editing.....and film acting anyway is basically 1000x takes to get one perfect shot....that is why there are movie stars who couldn't get on a broadway stage and cut it...she is more than proving herself in THE COLOR PURPLE&
Wow. Is all I have to say about this production amazing performances and I loved Everyone. Jennifer was in great voice and I loved the way she didn't try to sing her ass off. She sang effortlessly. All three leading ladies just blew me away. I am here got standing ooo during the song have not seen that since Jennifer Holiday in Boston previews. Ya I am old. Lol. Loved loved loved this show!!!
