As an actress, I think she makes the part her own and I generally enjoyed her while seeing the show. However, I have to say she sounds completely off key on the cast recording. It's totally upsetting, and I hope she was worth firing Alice Ripley or not choosing Felicia Finley over........

listening to the London soundtrack intrigues me because I can't imagine what they could be doing up there. I like DOTV, thought it was OK, and think it could have been better. From what I have heard, I am assuming that it's going well, because everyone I have spoken to has liked it. I guess we'll have to see how the press takes it.

Stay on board and deal with reality!! Nothing is going to be perfect. I love this board, and feel that I have my best debates here. If you look back, I am an every-so-often poster, but either way, every time I say something, I cant wait to hear what other opinions people have. I learn a lot here, and hope you change your mind. :)

I heard Melanie Griffith is opening a dance studio on the upper west side. I also heard it's going to offer classes only in the Griffith technique (you know, no streching required before class starts). Yeahhhhhh!!!!

Point Park has a GREAT alumni list, Boston Conservatory, NYU Tisch... however, I think it has 20% to do with where you went to school, and 80% to do with what you have to offer a show. No diploma will help you if you dont have a huge amount of talent to back it up. But, good luck in your auditions!!

She has been out both times I saw it... and I was very dissapointed each time. The movie is much much better than the show. But, anyway, good for her.
Also, I haaaate when someone does not vibrato or has an annoying one (i.e. Mandy Gonzalez, it's out of control!!!!! It's as if she has no control over it whatsoever!!)

Although I still will never know why Alice Ripley was fired, because Kerry cant even stay on key, I loved the show over all. The best for me was the three divas!! Especially the one who starts off "Downtown". Her energy and belt were amazing. I am just wondering how long they will hold out without loosing there voices. Training or not, no one can belt like that 8 times a week. And they only have 1 understudy for all three? That also shocked me.

He was with his whooooole family, they were veeeeeeeery drunk, and yes, thank God I was not there to have anyone get sick on me. I'll never ever forget that. It's the onle time I have ever seen someone on stage actually look out to see what the fuss was about. Even when a man had a heart attack during Les Mis about three years ago on a Saturday afternoon, Eponine still couldn't help fallin for Marius.

I am not a huge fan or a total hater, but I do know that when I am in rehersal I couldn't give a crap about who's there... I AM CONCENTRATING ON THE SHOW AND WHAT I WILL BE DOING NEXT ETC. Sorry for the caps but, come on. Also, she was a replacement at the last minute, right? She was probably VERY busy.

During a performance of "Chicago", a very drunk man kept screaming "faggot" at the top of his lungs and stating that he is going to buy some "fag candy" during intermision for a "fag show". I was with three other people, all of us were about to get up and throw him out of his 2nd row mezz. seat. During the second act, he screamed it at the toooop of his lkungs during a rather quiet part, and someone actually looked right up at him from the stage in shock (he was 2nd row 1st mezz.). About ten min
