I’m going to be in the vast minority on this one, but here it goes... I found this to be underwhelming in nearly every aspect. Bartlett Sher is my favorite director, and I have unequivocally loved every single production of his that I have seen. Mockingbird is the first production of his that left me cold.
The direction for this is just, in a word, messy. The blocking is oftentimes problematic, and there are some major sightline issues with the courtroom scenes if you are seated
Well, this was a COMPLETE miss in nearly every single way for me. Alice By Heart is an example of a show that has so much potential, but ultimately falls flat on its face. The first ten minutes left me somewhat hopeful, but, unfortunately, it’s all downhill from there.
There are no great performances to write home about. Molly Gordon’s Alice is shockingly awful and wooden. Her acting is absolutely appalling. The rest of the supporting cast is not much better. They do their
Interesting question. My Fair Lady is being done by Lincoln Center, which is non-profit, so there will be no recoupment announcement for that. Also, Disney does not really announce when they recoup, so I would not expect an official announcement from Frozen.
henrikegerman, I agree with your assessment 110%. You put my exact thoughts that I was struggling to convey into words. I loved both Ambrose and Benanti, but there was something so incredibly moving about Ambrose's stunning performance.

I wonder if the revisions she mentioned are the only ones or if there are more changes. I’ll be curious to find out if “Storybook” will be the opening number or restored to its original spot in act two. What about “Only Love?” If moving “You Are My Home” back to the prison scene means we lose “I’ll Forge

I am also super curious to see what version of the show they use! Some of my favorite songs from the show were cut throughout the different versions, but I REALLY hope they are still somehow incorpo

What award would that be?"
just because she didnt win a Tony that doesn’t mean any award is any less significant.

Thanks in advance!"
I sat front row orchestra off to the side and found the view to be fantastic! It's definitely better to be closer for this one.

Having seen both parts twice, I agree with the above posters. They also use metal detectors at the entrances which contributes to them asking people to arrive early. I arrived about 30 minutes prior both times (4 times entering the theatre total), and had plenty of time to use the restroom, explore the newly renovated theatre, and grab a drink!

Oh, good lord... Get off your high horse. Not every show is going to be for everyone. And "mourning the loss of a rare piece of true art"...? What is there to &q
