Heard from a cast member that they're hoping to reschedule the Chicago tryout.

So, is it best to get there right when the box office opens or in the middle of the day closer to showtime? Trying to see this next - I'll be in town the whole week!

This production is being produced by 'Chicagoland Theatre Fund,' which is a brand new organization with a top notch production team of Chicago's own alongside Stephen Schwartz.
This productions is under Equity contracts with only two performances, per audition notice.
They haven't announced a venue, which I believe it could be outdoors in one of these gorgeous parks in the city!
Any more news I hear, I'll definitely be letting this board

There was an announcement a few weeks ago that the show released a new block of tickets through September 2019. Thankfully, it will be there when you visit the city!

I believe the only way to approach the mentioning of her as a gay icon or any significant info that happens in the 90's until now is this: During the Finale (Take Me Home), there could be a vamp and that's where the three Cher's could break the fourth wall and narrate what has happened to Cher then and now. Then, they 'take it home' with one last chorus.
Just an idea, don't eat me if this is stupid!

Saw the show last night. Won the lottery and they put us in the front row: So there I was, Front Row Center!
Still a 3 hour show. One of the ensemble members said they only chopped 4 minutes off the run of the show!
Concept: The concept is a little muddy in the beginning. A lot of people were very confused. Towards the end, when 'Star Cher' looks at her Mom and says, "Wait, you can see the other Chers too?" It seemed a bit campy. A couple people behind me

I'm going to be student rushing for Pretty Woman in Chicago next weekend (final show) and I didn't know what the vibe has been like at the Oriental. Is it a large crowd gathering for rush tickets in the morning?
| EMC/Non-Eq Actors attending AEA auditions... Mar 8
2018, 02:15:06 PM|
So, there's three HUGE auditions happening on March 22nd:
Anastasia Male Singer/ECC call at 10am, Hello Dolly EPA from 10am-6pm, and Waitress ECC/Male Singer at 2pm.
I will be arriving into the city around 9:30-9:45am, and am wondering how my schedule should work. As an EMC actor, will I be able to arrive around 9:45-10am and check in to be seen for Anastasia and Hello Dolly and then check in at 2pm for Waitress . . . . I need someone to explain for me! Thanks! :)

Just curious! Thanks so much!

Who is Oak?
I'd really like Jessica Vosk, Natalie Weiss, or Lindsay Mendez eventually be Jenna in the future!

How is this embarrassing for Broadway? Think back through all of the shows where your favorite cartoons or movie characters came to life on Broadway: Shrek, Suessical, The Addams Family, Beauty & The Beast, Lion King, and more! They were (still are) very successful concepts!

He would be a fantastic CeCe, wouldn't he? Or does he have the spunk to carry the role of James Thunder Early?
| What songs for Thanksgiving Parade? Nov 2

Dear Evan Hansen - I'd really like to see a medley of Disappear & You Will Be Found . . . . Also, they could also do a live segment from the Music Box aired on the parade like CBS does, but that's never been done on NBC so I'm not sure!
Anastasia - I would assume that they'd stick with musical numbers like Paris Holds the Key to Your Heart and Journey to the Past to draw more fans in to the theater, but I'd really love to see Land of Yesterday be done sinc
