Their Harry Potter musicals are some of my favorite things EVER. I watch them anytime I’m sad.. such a mood boost! The humor is super refreshing and smart.

Rachel Zelger for Belle! She even tweeted she would love to be casted. I would love for somebody around 18-25 to play Belle. Anybody older just sometimes looks out of place up there.

I’d still define it as courageous, technically, because it’s something many would be very scared to do. But, yes, you make a very good point. I definitely agree that they’re trying to turn the show into something it’s not just to please

Excellent review, Hamilfan2!! The Addams Family comparison is quite an accurate one. Both shows took a pretty sinister and beloved concept and made it cartoonish and almost amateur like. While it’s enjoyable and innocent, they leave the audience wanting more and feeling like they were cheated a teeny bit. I’ve always thought the made up storyline of Wednesday being softened up by love was weird and doesn’t stay in line with the whole Addams Family brand, so to speak. Beetlejuice is very similar

SO excited for this! I am so ready to discover the rest of the casting as we move closer to opening. I wonder if they’ll go with unknowns for the rest of the cast since they already have such stars as the leads? I just can’t wait to see and hear the quartet. Speaking from experience, a good Music Man needs to have an amazing quartet!

I dont get why theyre changing so much of the lyrics and adding so many lyrics/lines in!! Theyre changing stuff that doesnt have anything to do with profanity or anything inappropriate. Just unnecessary, extra crap. DO THE SHOW AS WRITTEN!!!
Sincerely Werk! said: ""Revenge Party" is the worst song in the Mean Girls soundtrack. Grey Henson is funny in it but the rest of the song is pretty basic. Also it REALLY shows how bad some of the lyrics are ("It's a revenge party, a party with revenge is what it's like".... seriously?)."
Mean Girls has some pretty lazy lyrics. Like, “And if you treat me bad, I’ll say you’re bad” or “Imagine a party with

Wow, not only are they going to change lines and a song (“Take It From an Old Ma’am” is the altered version according to Waitress’ Instagram) but they’ll have to replace the light up Joe’s Diner sign that hangs above the set. Not to mention, the shirt that they sell at the merch stand that says “Joe’s Pie Diner.”
I’m not against it. It just seems like a lot of unnecessary work and alterations. Why do they need to go through all this trouble? Do they really need a “name” that bad?

Did we need Pearce Bronson to sound horrible? Did we we need an awful Crowe in Les Miz? We did not. Camila Cabello is a TERRIBLE actress. So they're wrong."
Has she acted before?"
Nope. Not unless you count music videos or a voice over role on Barbie’s Drea
