...I honestly don't think this is a new thing. Ben Platt didn't take photos after Opening, I don't think. It's not that they weren't allowed, they just didn't take them. When the shows popularity really took off, they started saying no photos. I think it depended on the actor though because I know some did.

I see shows all the time and I have to say really not on par with broadway shows and felt very Corny and cringe. None of the jokes landed and the kept none of the same hilarious vibe that the movie had. Some of the vocal performances were well done but let me just say.. this Cameron Dallas?? RUINED the show. Laughable horrible voice that people totally were laughing at loud at
OH! I know about this!! I was asking about becoming involved in The Prince of Egypt in London, and corresponded with a producer who told me how much money it would cost to invest. I don't remember how much it was, though. It's somewhere in the depths of my email, unfortunately. So I think anyone can, providing they have the money!
