As long as you don't have giant costume pieces that block others' view, if you want to, go for it. It's not something that's super common - although I think Beetlejuice is a show that's more likely to have cosplayers than other show might - but as long as you're not causing a distraction, you do you! There are a lot of much ruder and more disruptive behaviors that bother me more than someone dressing up in a costume.

One thing comes into mind, remember when she was casted in Wicked, and there were people that we saying that she was casted for her large presence on social media? I wonder if that is the case, without her in the cast, would this show be on everyone's radar as loud as it is?"
I’ve been a Vosk fan since way before her Wicked d
I imagine this isn't a popular opinion, but as charming and emotional as BMC's performance of "The Goodbye Song" was, the curtain speech rubbed me the wrong way and perfectly summed up why I have been so frustrated with this show and its team from day one. Instead of a simple "thank you for the journey," they just had to get in one last insistence that they had been "bullied" and "mocked" and mistreated. That attitude persisted throughout the sh

Disgusted about Amar."
Well then I guess you’d better skip this show! Great news about Amar being cast."
I'm not sure what the "great" part is: that an incredibly weak actor has been (most likely) cast in a fairly significant role, or that a man who behaved in such an appalling manner is facing no professional consequences.
I do think it might have been very interesting - and fit more with the current day - to have that role reversal. It definitely would have made the point more, although then the problem would have been: what's the character arc? Here, Michael is clearly an antihero who needs to "learn a lesson" and earn our sympathy, whereas Dorothy being the real protagonist would have our sympathy from the start. It would be very easy to just slide into a simple, two-dimensional lecture pl
Guess I'm in the minority, but I loved the Hadestown number - really showed the aesthetic. But, I can understand why a more energetic number might have also been a good/better choice; I'm biased because Wait For Me has been seared in my brain since seeing the show and it was the memorable moment in context.
I don't have all the answers, but I do know that the production staff on emotionally taxing shows, such as DEH, do have resources in place to support actors. My understanding is also that DEH in particular provides resource information and training of some kind because there has been patterns of fans of the show relating so strongly to the material that they end up telling the actors about their own struggles; this way the team can gracefully suggest resources without having to take on al

I will respectfully but strongly disagree. Saw her last week and she really impressed me, both vocally and acting-wise. I've seen a lot of Elphabas over the years in several different companies, and she's probably in my top three favo

Frankly, I don't care if he's an exceptional dancer or a terrible one. Gross, harassing, exploitative behavior is not excused by talent. I understand that the union rules and technicalities are why he's back, but no, I don't believe he deserves "another chance," e
MK is apparently doing Wicked's Stars in the Alley performance tomorrow, so I'm assuming that means she's joining the company?
At this point, I guess I'm also assuming Jake Boyd is a shorter-term Fiyero, since they haven't actually announced him in the role. Last time they did that was with Curt Hansen filling in between Ashley Parker Angel and Ryan McCarten.
lightsarebrightonbroadway said: "Okay I've heard from a few sources that the new Fiyero has been cast and it's Zach Adkins. Haven't heard anything from the cast, however. Ryan will be leaving around June-July they gave him some extra time that his original contract did not have to make up for his injury."
That doesn't make sense, at least the part about Ryan extending - hasn't he been doing a countdown to his last show on his Instagram?
@MannPhann: yes, it was Derek Klena, not Zach Adkins, who already played Fiyero (in 2013, I think).
I'd believe that Zach and Cody (heh) were called back, but it's the Colton Ryan bit that gives me pause. Is he tall enough? Literally, Fiyero does have a height requirement of 5'11" or taller, I believe, and Colton doesn't read that tall.
