I know everyone has moved on but i just wanted to bump this. when i saw this production last in March 2018, Josh Grosso's understudy went on. When I saw it over the weekend, Josh in the role and I actually really liked how he played Marius a bit

Kinda feel like a 7pm slot on a Sunday would be a better fit for this. My little one can’t stay up until 10 on a school night and she would love this.
Just wanted to say that I appreciate this thread. my oldest is very jumpy (was alarmed by the firecrackers/chandelier in Phantom,for example), so I am glad this is an ongoing thread.

Saw the tour this week. Enjoyed it, a really fun time. Thought the sets looked fine. Memory was beautiful, Mr Mistofellees was a lot of fun. Show had great energy.

My kids have enjoyed Dumbo, Aladdin and The Lion King and BATB. I liked Cinderella, kids haven’t seen it. Different tastes I guess.

I saw this last night and despite seeing clips of other tour stops on youtube, did not know what to expect or whether I would enjoy it. It was a fun, delightful experience. It really was an all ages crowd and Hugh just oozes charisma. I am sure that he tells the same stories and same jokes at every venue, but he somehow is able to make everything seem fresh and like he is just ad libbing this stuff just for you. I would call it less of a concert and more of a song and dance with storytelling
I wasn't too interested in Ain't too Proud to Beg but the performance really drew me in and I'm listening to it right now and if it tours, I'll definitely buy a ticket. My non theater going mother was watching and was really interested in it too. That was my big surprise of the night!
I liked the Oklahoma performance but am not 100% sold on the modernizing of it.
The King Kong puppet did look really cool in action, I didn't e

I was thinking along these lines but wasn't sure if there was anything made specifically for this. I will also look into the bubblebums.
I think that in this day and age, its a huge mistake and quite an antiquated view to have such a strict view of social media policy that a production does not let the cast or creatives post anything related to the show--e.g. them getting ready in their dressing rooms or sound check, or stage dooring, etc. (Obviously not talking about clips of the show, that should be off limits). It really doesn't make any sense to me. Is someone really going to not go to a show because they see an actor
My local theater (Fisher theater in detroit) does not have boosters. My youngest is going to a show with us this fall and will need something. Anyone have any recs for a small booster that we could bring in with us for this purpose?
