I saw the dress rehearsal and it’s not a great show. Too many filler songs and the narrative is a mess. A few dropped props and some costume issues but a pretty amazing go at it considering they hadn’t run the whole show at all beforehand.
Adrienne Warren is good- when you can understand what she’s saying. She’s unintelligible for most of it. But still, it’s a true star performance and she will win the Tony.

I guarantee in a year or two we'll be asking people about this play and they'll rave and say they loved it but then they'll say they only saw Part 1. It's why they're doing more Part 1 in the schedule."

Before the end of 2019? No. Before the 2020 Tonys? Possibly!The capitalization is said to be $28m, but the weekly operating costs have to beexorbitantbecause of all the music licensing. Just doing q

I know a couple of people involved in this show and they both say that the work that’s being done is beautiful, and the whole team really believe in this show. Maybe they are foolish, but I for one am intrigued to see what it’s like.

Rosalie was told a while ago she wouldn’t be doing the show in NYC. They always needed someone with a name or more recognition to play the role on Broadway. A good thing too as she wasn’t very good in it IMO.

Totally agree. The Inheritance is far superior to Angels. And especially the recent ugly Broadway revival.

Ben Platts annoying performance just reveals he has no range at all. Laura Dreyfuss says all of her lines so fast in the same monotonous tone that I had NO idea what she was ever saying.
For me the only saving graces are Lange (a true Goddess) and Zoey Deutsch (spelling?!) .. and what a lovely voice she has too.

She isn’t going to win. She is finished. How can she work in an industry that is populated by so many gay people ? No one should have to work with someone as bigoted as her. Hiding behind her ‘religion’. Disgraceful person.

The writing is just not special enough to be anything but trite. There's no central conflict so scenes go on and on without engaging the audience. And quite frankly there is just no real character development here. Sorry not sorry, Matthew Lopez is not the next great american gay write
