The sound they refer to is people screaming in terror. You hear him say, "Oh God, I love that sound" ri
This is a fun thread. Mine are Dear Evan Hansen and Once on This Island.
Having heard a few songs from Dear Evan Hansen, I figured it was overhyped and manipulative, but was happily surprised to discover that I loved it when I saw it. (Although I still roll my eyes at “So Big So Small.” Come on.) The promotional videos for Once on This Island left me cold, but once I was immersed in the experien

I haven’t noticed the whole audience having a bad time, but I’ve seen instances of individuals obviously having a bad time. The man in front of me at Wicked dozed off and was audibly snoring. (I couldn’t blame him. I don’t understand the appeal of Wicked and find it tedious and plodding.) When I saw Oklahoma!, one of the on-the-floor audience members Ado Annie chose to engage during “I Cain’t Say No"
Thanks, that’s very interesting. I also would like a stronger Orpheus. It looks like your post cut off mid-sentence at the end though.
For #2, I was actually referring to Hades’ original kidnapping of Persephone from her mother’s garden. The show alludes to it — I think in Epics I and III — but never shows it.

Anyone here on the forum been recently?"
I saw it three weeks ago, having seen it in DC twice. I liked it and think it’s much improved from DC. They toned down the raunch and made the storyline more coherent. The audience adored it and I could hear people raving about it at intermission, calling it “hilarious,” saying Alex Brightman should have won the To
