Just saw the show. Was expecting him to be decent or at least okay. After all this is Broadway. Nope. He was so awful that the entire time he was onstage I was cringing in my seat. Others around me were actually chuckling when he would sing. And he was really trying. Like you could tell he was giving it his all but that boy CANNOT SING. Not like he’s not as good as the other actors, like he actually cannot sing. At all. I feel really bad for Erika and the company. To have him as a scene partner
Had the pleasure to see Zach Trimmer as the understudy for Kristoff tonight and he was an absolute dream. Caroline Bowman as Elsa is enchanting and elegant but unfortunately comes across as a bit underwhelming in her solo songs. She’s at her best whenever she is interacting with Caroline Innerbichler as Anna. They have extraordinary chemistry and in scenes together Caroline B comes off as touchingly vulnerable and lovely. I enjoyed her Let It Go but her Monster was a huge let
I thought the recent Love Never Dies North American Tour was infinitely better than the 2012 Australian version. Even though I loved the Australian Production I was mesmerized by Meghan Picerno as Christine on the tour. Thought she was miles ahead of Anna O Byrne. Another that comes to mind is the Something Rotten Tour (Original cast) I’ve seen the OG cast on Broadway as well and have to agree that Rob McClure brought something extra special to the tour. So much more dynamic and fresh.
They look amazing but what is with the sound quality both Caroline’s seem off. Could barely hear some of Caroline B’s word’s in “Monster” I hope in actual performance she’s stronger vocally to be honest the clips seem really pale compared to the Broadway Company. She seemed to be struggling. And this is for press? Hope this is just the video though.
Katharine is literally the most bland and lifeless Jenna I’ve ever seen but she was in SMASH so yay.... again I don’tunderstand this choice. So uninspired. I know I’m being harsh but I saw her on Broadway and in London and I just don’t get the appeal.
Any theatre experiences where you had no interest in going, (dragged by a friend) or just thought it was way over hyped and there was no way youd like it, but went anyway, and then you end up loving the show and having your opinion completely changed? For me some that come to mind are LEGALLY BLONDE (OBC and West End) PHANTOM OF THE OPERA (2015-2016 Broadway) WAITRESS (OBC) BILLY ELLIOT, HEATHERS (OG), HADESTOWN... all shows that I thought I wouldnt be fond of and ended up real
Best touring production you have ever seen? Oct 31

Original 2017 National Tour of SOMETHING ROTTEN (Adam Pascal, Rob McClure etc..” I had seen the OBC in 2015 and they were great but the Tour cast omg they were stellar. I ADORED Christian Borle as Shakespeare on Broadway but Adam was just sinfully good. Another top notch tour that comes to mind is the 2017-2018 LOVE NEVER DIES Tour. Meghan Picerno as Christine has the best vocals and acting abilities out of any Christine I’ve ever seen. Other great tours- the 2010 DREAMGIRLS National Tour, 2009-

I love Sutton Foster but she is DEFINITELY not a Rose. In her younger days she would have made a fantastic Louise though.
Katharine McPhee? Yikes I hope not. Love her as a performer but absolutely not a fan of her Jenna. She’s too boring. Too safe. You wouldn’t think they’d bring her back especially after her lukewarm reception as Jenna in London....
Ive never understood why Wicked has never had an Elphaba Alternate. Singing and acting that role you have to be a beast. I feel like Wicked should go the Phantom route and have the lead Elphaba do 6 shows a week and an alternate two. Especially on The National Tour..Any thoughts?
What are some musicals that you know you could never tire of seeing live? Shows where you could find something new and fresh each time you go.

Super pumped that Christopher Fitzgerald and Drew Gehling are closing out the show, two of the OBC. I think the idea of Jessie coming back would be incredible. She is still my favorite Jenna. I know its not gonna happen but it’s a dream. I’m almost positive Sara will be the final Jenna. Whoever it is I’m sure it will end on a bang.
