I was worried about turning Alanis's distinctive voice/sound into Broadway songs, but they just released You Learn (with a little of Thank U at the end) and it sounds good! I'll definitely be heading out to see this in the fall:
Not sure what else happens in the Squip seats, but I can't really remember anything about the show that will be super horrible from up close (I was maybe 15 rows back).
About liking it or not - I'm 41, and liked it for what it was. Didn't change my life, but I didn't hate it. It was bright, and poppy, and the time passed quickly. I like what was said above - just go in with an open mind.
So - I'm hearing a lot about how the Squip changed from pre-Broadway to Broadway. I only got to see it for the first time last week, and was not a huge fan of the "Keanu"-ish voice and mannerisms. Was it something different before? Was the costume (silver suit) different before?
Saw this on Wednesday afternoon when I was in NYC and agree with basically everyone in parts. I really enjoyed it - I found it really easy to follow, but was also OK with being confused a little - Alice the book is confusing in parts! Set looked awesome, and I'm generally a sucker for Duncan Sheik songs - both his own, and Spring Awakening/Whisper House.
I'm glad that someone else was confused by Alice's relationship with Alfred. I was too - at first I thought he was her br

Saw the show on Wednesday night and he wasn’t back in - but Troy Iwata was AWESOME (he was the only Michael I’ve seen, so nothing to compare it to, but was very happy). Was he George Salazar back in tonight?
Quick question: has aynyone gotten anything from Be More Chill since it transferred? Just saw it Wednesday night, and was hoping to get a signed Playbill - any word on if they’re asking for a donation?

Can you tell me more about it? There isn’t much chat about it here on the forums."
I saw In & Of Itself last time I was in NYC and can't recommend it highly enough. It's a 1-man magic show, kind of, but it's also a show about identity and manipulation. If you're interested in learning more, there are s
Just to remind people to NEVER give up hope - I sent to Phantom at the end of October, and got a signed playbill back (with a nice note asking to not sell it) on April 12. About 5 and a half months - but was awesome to get it!
I'm assuming this is kind of a long shot, but I was wondering if anyone had a Waitress Playbill from April of 2017 (with that cast in it). I saw it April 25, 2017, but sent away my one Playbill to get signed... and it wasn't returned. They're nice souvenirs, and wondering if anyone can help out.
I'm looking for a Sara Waitress Playbill - preferably from April. I saw the show on 4/25, then sent in my Playbill to be signed and never got it back. Since then, I've made a point to get 2 from each show. :)
They're putting up a version of it in Seattle this spring - not sure if it'll be some of the same cast that was in Chicago and NYC. Now to convince someone to make a cast recording - there's a version online of "What the World Needs Is People Like Me," which I really like, but there are a bunch of great songs that I can't find.
Thanks so much to everyone for all of the suggestions - seems like Come from Away and Band's Visit are the consensus favorites. I haven't seen Phantom in FOREVER (and never on Broadway), so the Thursday matinee quickly made it onto my list.
Mad Ones looks really interesting, but it looks like it's not starting until November. Bummer - I'll have to catch it on another trip.
