I wanted to see it, but I won't have the time. Please write reviews here. Just so people are aware, the actors won't stay true to certain character's races.
Well, people were clapping, but maybe those who weren't were just confused for the reason why to clap. Or because they knew they didn't think it was that big of a deal.

I loved the show! It was amusing entertainment at it's best. All of the actors were amazing and wouldn't know they were nonequity if I didn't read it. I thought Brent Michael DiRoma did an excellent job. I adored his Rod. It was amusing to see his own facial expressions for the character. I must admit being attractive that sometimes when he was Princeton I was looking more at him than Princeton. I heard about the puppet sex scene vaguely, but I was not ready for that. I couldn't stop gasping and

Well I think it's smart they have a covering Elle and the understudies are still there in case something happens. But I feel bad for Lauren, who only got to do a couple of shows, and Rhiannon, who's not back yet and got to do none. Finally they have the chance to do the role, and now they can't.
I went as the Phantom one year with a generic mask. Of course I went to a gay club that night too, no guys come up to you when half your face is covered, haha.
I don't really have a Broadway Halloween costume this year. I work at a children's museum and act in their Halloween program. So I'll just be a bunch of storybook characters.

2008, 12:11:32 PM I was really disappointed by Ken Land's Callahan. Blood in the Water was mostly spoken and he just wasn't commanding in the 2nd act. Now I feel bad that I never appreciated what Michael Rupert brought to that role.
I agree. But I did think he was a little bit better in the second act. I don't know if it was because I was right by the orchestra, but when he sang Blood in the Water I could hardly hear him. This happened other times with different actors.
I saw the show tonight and it was great! The ensemble is so energized and you know they are working their butts off when you see sweat all over their faces in the lower key acting scenes that follow the dance numbers. I was front row, far right so I got to see into the wings and when actors hid behind things (I saw how Elle changes so quickly in the beg
I look forward to seeing it in Rochester this week and although I love Sheas Theatre, maybe it's not that bad I'm seeing it in a smaller theatre.

With all the negative reviews about Jeff McClean as Warner, I kind of hope I get to see Adam Zelasko go on in the role. Actually I be for it anyway since I went to college with him and I am very happy for his success.

The last time I saw Phantom in Toronto I was a little inarticulate. Even after I told myself to actually be coherent this time and express to the actors what I liked about their interpretations of the characters. D.C. Anderson was kind enough to give me a backstage tour so I met quite a few actors. Here are some embarassing moments (for me anyway): *I met John Cudia in his dressing room and I got star strucked. D.C. Anderson already introduced who I was and my friend with but later on I said

I just auditioned for Shakespeare in the Park. I'm hoping to be cast in Merry Wives of Windsor. They've already cast three of the leads with local actors; Saul Elkin as Lear, his daughter Rebecca as Cordelia, and Norm Sham as Falstaff. I was in Othello last year and they hired an actor from NYC. I'm glad when they cast local talent; I wasn't impressed with the actor playing Othello. He was such a nice guy, enjoyable to work with, but I felt he superficially exaggerated the role and there wasn't
