  • Hamilton in London  Jan 16 2017, 11:10:21 AM

    It was pretty easy once I got into the page.  I noticed some people had managed to get tickets before the noon start (London time) so I was a bit worried, but once I got in, and chose my date (May 201, I got a decent seat in the stalls.

    Such sad news.  I loved her in Sound of Music.  Dementia is a terriible disease.  :'(



    The live feed is finished;  I believe the performance is still going on.

    It was in Los Angeles;  Mr. Van Dyke reprised his role as "Mr. Dawes Senior."

    Yeah, but at least this time he knows it before he's starting.


    Oh, so true, Lizzie..


  • LES MIZ Sets Sept. 2016 Broadway Closing Date  Dec 2 2015, 04:45:59 PM

    windbelle said: "Overall I like this revival. It's not as great as the original but still enjoyable. And I'm not a fan of Ramin. I don't really care about bringing "something new" to the characters. I just want them to sing well, act well, and be in character, which not many people can handle IMHO. I've seen the revival for a few times and I haven't seen a Valjean I really love, so I'm excited John Owen Jones is taking over and really looking forward

    Very excited to see that John Owen Jones will be returning to Broadway 

  • Alfie Boe is leaving Les Miz on February 28th  Nov 13 2015, 05:03:10 PM

    Saw him play the role in London and again a few weeks ago in NY. Alfie has really grown into the role,and as you say Lizzie, his singing is phenomenal.    

  • New Les Mis Replacements Review Thread  Sep 2 2015, 10:51:36 AM

    None of the fans I know who  were there last night said anything about a planned standing ovation for Bring Him Home,  but I know when Alfie has sung it in concert (mostly in the UK) he got standing ovations every time he sang it.

    Also horrifying are the assumptions that he committed suicide based on his tweet about his last appearance as Valjean.  More than one person claimed that tweet was in essence a suicide note.  *rolleyes*

    The comments on AOL/HuffingtonPost were indeed disgusting.

    "If you regularly watch the historical shows and specials on PBS and the History Channel, his voice is everywhere. He'll be missed."

    I believe he was the voice of FDR in the recent Burns series on the Roosevelts. Very sad news.

    "I'm not going to lie... I loved Ashley Brown's portrayal of Mary Poppins and I cried when she flew over the audience."

    That reminded me... the first time I saw Mary Poppins on stage in London, I found myself getting very emotional during Feed The Birds. This happened every time I saw the show both in London and at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC. Not sure why -- might be a nostalga thing, since MP was the very first movie I ever saw.

    Bring Him Home -- reminds me sometimes of the night we brought my firefighter brother home from the hospital. He was dying (multiple myeloma contracted from working at Ground Zero)& his wife wanted to get him back home -- he died two days later.

    Depending on the performers, in Les Mis, pretty much from Little Fall of Rain to the end.

  • Marvin Hamlisch Special on PBS  Dec 28 2013, 10:38:06 AM
    Very much enjoyed it. I was reminded of the last time I saw him live, which was when he conducted the Washington Pops (I think)in a salute to Sondheim that included Brian Darcy James and Maria Friedman, among others. At one point during the concert he pointed out two young girls in the front row with their parents, expressing great pleasure that there were young people like these girls in the audience and how great it was that the parents brought them to the show. He invited the family backst
