I attended the show last night and found the evening to be a mixed bag. Cranston is basically the reason to see this show and he is sensational. I’m not sure how he is going to do this until March. His poor voice sounded like it could crap out any performance now when he was yelling. Everything else didn’t really add up. The staging was just sloppy and all over the place. If you aren’t sitting in the center section the vast majority of the show needs to be watched on a TV screen. Even
Jarethan said: Unless things have changed or I did not understand your analysis, I think you are wrong. Lets say show grosses $1Million a week and its weekly nut is $600,000;that does NOT mean that $400,000 gets returned to the investor pot for future distribution. As I remember reading years ago, that $400,000 is shared by the 'return investment pot', the creatives, the theatreowner, etc. It is possible that Disney has forced a different methodology --

I couldn’t put it down. It’s well worth the read. I really hope this one transfers. Has anyone heard and recent rumblings?
The design is very simple. Moving platforms and chairs, all mostly pushed on and off by actors. The scene changes into the court segments are clunky because none of the court scenery is automated. I thought the set was very effective but nothing ground breaking. It also doesn't feel minimalist and fills the stage very well.
The music served the piece very well. Nothing really to write home about though. They have 2 musicians on stage playing the music the entire show off to t
Okay, I saw it last night. First DO NOT sit in the balcony rush seats. I stood the entire show. That is really one of my only complaints though. And even standing up the run time went by really fast. I thought it was great and depressingly relevant in today's society. To the people who complaining that the show starts in the middle of the court case, the whole play is told through memories. The court case is presented in about 5 different parts throughout the play. I thought it was very s
