It's a hit! Get your tickets while you can. I think the show should be a bit shorter, hopefully they won't cut the dancing numbers though. They are pure heaven. The cast and the orchestra were flawless.
I saw the show tonight with a fellow BroadwayWorld legend and we really enjoyed the show. Kathleen Marshall was taking notes in the audience...the entire cast was flawless, Beth Malone surprised me. The 2 4 1 ticket promotion is sold out throughout the whole run, but there are rush tickets available (sometimes, because they were sold out on Sunday), the show needs to be a bit shorter, but overall it was really a great show with some fantastic moments. I loved it.
I have met people that worked with her and they said the most horrible things about her behavior...the fact that someone said they only heard positive things about her is laughable. I won't say who that person is because he is currently working on Broadway and he is trying to make a living, he is not a star or a performer but had to deal with her backstage and would go home crying every night.
Not sure what happened to the demographic that reads this site, but everyone disappointed that Lady Gaga isn't doing this, guess what? More seats for me! These ladies are very talented and I am certainly more interested in seeing her than seeing Michelle Pfeiffer butchering this amazing score.
It was a treat, I had to see it twice. Both stars were glamorous, wearing great gowns, the physical fight was hilarious, the whole play flew by and it was funny and witty and bitchy. The interview they both did on Larry King Live was legendary also. Linda is such a sweet woman, Joan also was great in this...both women looked amazing in it and I feel that both were great stage actresses.
For anyone to compare Natasha Richardson's performance to Liza's, it's a huge insult. Liza is legendary for playing that role so well, the fact that she is an amazing singer and dancer made it even better. She is not supposed to be untalented, no one would give a spot to anyone at a cabaret show if she had no talent.
