I saw the production at the Ordway and the one in Chicago.
The Ordway production was sort of a Drury Lane 2.0 version with many of the key showstopping moments in tact (like the unforgettable Act 1 finale) while others were totally redone. Looks like E. Sosa redid most of the costumes too and while some were improvements overall I liked the ones in Chicago more. Emick made more sense to me as Julian Marsh than the guy in Drury Lane but Tunie wasn't as strong a

I went to the Ordway to buy my tickets the day they went on sale and asked about this. At the time, they said Row D was going to be front row but if something changed they would move me forward to Row A and let me know if they did. Later in the day they called me and told me Row A

Supposedly, they offered all persons with tix - including those who attended - were offered tickets to another "proper" show.<

With Hicks out the rest of the run in Chicago a swing is on and for some crazy reason she’s wearing a costume that’s identical to another queen she’s sharing the stage with. In London, the swings have their own “unique” costumes, right?

Interesting, I was planning on coming into town this weekend to catch one of the last shows Hicks was performing in. A day or so ago there were plenty of tickets but in the last day a healthy number of the rest of the run (including this entire weekend) sold out. As of tonight, only closing weekend has availability. Guess I should have bought ‘em while I had the chance...but glad I saw it a few weeks ago at least!
Scarlet Leigh said: "I am also a little "Hmmm" that they didn't add another alternate to fill Mack's space. Perhaps they will add in someone at a later date? Seems like they run a risky business with only two."
Well, Mack was never an alternate - she was brought in to replace Pauly. The two alternates have been with the show since the beginning and one (Nicole) will take over for Hicks for the last two weeks of the run when she leaves to d
Regarding the original ending during early previews, I'll include it as a spoiler...just in case.

At the preview performance I saw (third preview, I believe), at the end of the show when Harold is brought before the townspeople I noticed several audience members abruptly leaving. I was kind of shocked they were
Saw this in one of its first previews and found it to be a very pleasant production of an already perfect musical. The tempos were so fast I was amazed I could still hear every word perfectly (the tempo for Pick-A-Little STARTED where it usually ramps up to).
Geoff Packard was an appealing Harold Hill but, dare I say it, a tad too young?
The most obvious weak link here is Marian. While fine in the acting department, her singing and more specifically her deli
