I love how you're complaining about the WHOLE season but only defending your opinion by listing only a couple shows...

Jonathan Groff  Jan 25 2015, 06:37:05 PM
How is it odd? He's expanding is horizons.

Julie Taymor  Jan 23 2015, 11:13:10 PM
Taymor didn't direct all of Spider-Man though, only for 1.0. Additional directing for 2.0 was done by someone else (Forgot his name). But I have had that thought myself. Directors have their good and bad shows.

The Who's Tommy opens at The Paramount Theatre outside Chicago  Jan 20 2015, 08:27:56 PM
Looks like a stunning production! Would love to have a revival!

Disenchanted, anyone?  Jan 19 2015, 01:44:54 AM
I saw it in Tampa last year and loved it. Has the show really changed any?

Union Tours vs. Non-Union Tours  Jan 15 2015, 08:59:11 PM
I've seen both great and terrible equity and non-equity shows. I saw Flashdance when the tour was equity. Worst equity tour show I've ever seen. (Now it's non-equity I believe, but refuse to see it nonetheless.) The American Idiot tour was non-equity and I thought it was astounding. Both union and non-union shows can be just as bad or good as the other.

Shows you have seen in foreign languages  Jan 8 2015, 09:42:46 PM
Tanz der Vampire in Germany. Better than its Broadway counterpart for sure.

Sideshow touring possibility?  Jan 4 2015, 10:08:46 PM
Highly doubt it.

I don't think it's a show that would survive without Idina anyways.

Silliest things said in a theatre.  Dec 19 2014, 05:07:10 PM
When I saw the first national tour of Wicked, Glinda (Chandra Lee Schwartz) said the line "Elphie, now that we're friends. I've decided to make you my new project." And the lady behind me loudly says "Oh god!"

I saw the Dirty Dancing tour and a lady in the orchestra seating was wearing a sleeping mask. During intermission, she was still wearing it.


Most enthusiastic audience you have experienced?  Dec 12 2014, 03:56:20 PM
When I saw Priscilla on tour, the audience rose to their feet during the finale as the three leads stepped out from their final costume change. It was such an incredible moment. People were singing along and cheering the whole time.

Also, the audience during the closing night performance of Tommy was quite amazing. Once the ensemble stepped onto the stage for the finale, the audience rose to their feet cheering and clapping.


2017 NBC Live Musical?  Dec 7 2014, 10:51:49 PM
Dance of the Vampires

2016 NBC Live Musical? What do you want?  Dec 7 2014, 09:12:00 PM
Well Disney isn't affiliated with NBC, so I would think that it would be harder to do so.

phantom of the opera national tour?  Dec 7 2014, 04:16:01 PM
gleek4114, I'm seeing it in Tampa as well. I saw Dirty Dancing last night and the Straz Center lists their shows in programs by month. So looking at the cast list for Phantom, it doesn't say when alternates go on. I'm curious how the schedule for the Tampa run will go considering that there are extra matinee's for the holidays.
