Original Company Curtain Call Sep 30
2012, 04:12:35 PM
As far as I've read, the choreography was such that Bobby was left stranded on one side of the curtain and the rest of the cast on the other, to continue his alienation from them. Not really sure how that works with Being Alive, however.

I love 'Blame it on your daddily and mammily / Cause depression runs in our family' is incredibly contrived and absolutely wonderful.

I don't understand how so many people can't go two or three hours without "buying a candy bar". You are not at the theatre (or cinema for that matter) to eat, you are there to enjoy the show that's being put on for you. If you're diabetic or absolutely have to have a little energy boost, plan for that in advance, but 99% of people should be able to sit still without shoveling sweets into their jowly faces for a couple of hours.

"Tovah Feldshuh Theatre by the Sea, Matunuck, RI – as Sophie in Star Spangled Girl by Neil Simon – during a quick change, for some reason done onstage – the lights came on too soon. I leave the rest to your imagination."

Don't worry, there's still the Thompson-Mulligan-Firth film to keep us going.
Why doesn't Coleen Sexton work more!? Aug 12

I understand her head got too big for her pointy hat when she was in Wicked and no one wants to work with someone that notoriously difficult. Don't know how she got on in Legally Blonde though.

Imelda Staunton as Madame Rose Aug 9

Staunton's Lovett was a revelation. I love Lansbo as much as the next man, but Staunton was the only Lovett I've seen that made me nearly cry at the end of By the Sea with how incredibly real the vision was.
As for the singing, she was absolutely fine. All I want is for an actor to sing the correct pitch in the correct rhythm. Anything else is a bonus.
