I'm curious as to where the ticket prices will start? Do you think Hugh is bigger then Bette and will be even higher in price or about the same as Bette? I do think that tickets prices have gotten a little outrageous - and I understand there are a lot of people to pay - but it's almost becoming a destination rather then a night out. In London you can see just as big of stars for 1/2 the price of Broadway - all right I'll stop my picking and pecking...

I haven't seen 'Superhero' but the videos of the show songs seem more engaging and relatable to a wider audience then the songs of BMC. Nothing against BMC and we are now comparing a freshman off bway show to a now bway show. May the strongest heartbeat win!"

I think this is their way of gracefully bowing out and shelving this quietly. I can't imagine a show this size and expense not having an out of town tryout - just saying I think it flat lined. I am curious of what happens to the London "Thriller" show that's been running for years?
The Hollywood Bowl always uses a large handful of cast members that have all ready done the show, since the rehearsal period is so short. I'm betting on Vanessa Williams as the Witch and if they can get him... James Cordin. They will prob do some kind of stunt casting for the wolf and a youtube star or disney kid to be Little Red!
for the record since some of you are counting how many times she calls out - she was out again last night (Friday 2/8) The exchange line was very long- it's very frustrating and disappointing when people buy tickets for a show and the 'star' is out. But I also feel like half the people in the audience probably don't know who Beatty even is...and the U/S was spot on and has amazing pipes! She sang some of those songs better then I've ever heard them- just

darquegk - I couldn't agree with you more!! Now is the time for it to roll back into town! HA AH AHA I wish Clancy Brown would come to bway too!
I'm just excited that a company is giving a considerable amount to charity like BCEFA - instead of spending millions for 30 seconds of exposure. Skittles seems to be inventive with publicity and yes they are getting their fair share of attention as well - just feels like its a win win!
Yikes! I was so curious about this casting - she to me is much more grounded, dramatic actress. Not that she isn't funny or doesn't have comedy in her bones - it's just that Dolly is supposed to be a bit over the top and definitely some endearing sass - qualities I don't necessarily associate with Buckley - Though I will try and see it anyway. I did see her in Grey Gardens a few years back and sadly was not impressed with her in that production. (could've
I gotta say for $60 this is a knock out production- a broadway caliber show with talent that is outstanding! It does feel like a concert, and a great way to describe it. I couldn't believe how many hits this great duo had - and it literally is hit after hit! The stage makes you feel like your going to a local joint to hang our and listen to music. A refreshing, high energy, and very entertaining night! The theater was about 70% filled mostly the sides empty but the
I'm all in - I think this would be a warm welcome as a revival , especially since we need a few choices in that category for next season. Hopefully they will think about what worked and didn't work in the original. It needs to have an even balance of emotional connection to the characters and their journey as well spectacle. IT was a marvel at one point in history. Scenic design I think is what will sink or sail this production.
We are never going to get rid of stunt casting but sometimes...it revives a dead horse. Brendon Urie in Kinky Boots and Reba in Annie Get your Gun were brilliant moves - what are some of your favorites that got your heart beating again? And just for laughs, what were some of the worst? (be kind)
