In any case and in no order:
- It was a challenging and daring piece of theater. I did not see Great Comet so I can’t compare, but it’s a massive departure from Hadestown and I caught very little overlap in Rachel’s direction from that show to this one b
"Word from a friend of a friend who knows the Director/Choreographer (Casey Nicolaw) a they spent the weekend revising the music top to bottom. "Next week you're going to see a completely different show."

Justice is actually the Act 1 closer (the "You Can't Sit With Us" scene)
