HBO's 'The Normal Heart': Your Thoughts May 27

I have not seen the play nor did I know a thing about this cast. I had only heard mention of it passingly on the board, so I downloaded it. I am still processing it.
The moment that rocked me to the core was the wailing mother, loading the body of her child into the backseat of her car.
How best to approach a new musical: cold or Jun 5

I almost always go in spoiled unless we grab tickets day-of at TKTS or the box office. I get too excited about a show and want to know as much as possible. My most pleasantly surprising cold show was N2N. I knew I Miss The Mountains. Who didn't? But I didn't really know the story or the big twist. I normally see that stuff coming a mile away. Because of that, despite the show's flaws, it won me over. It was a true theatre experience and one of my favorites.

I don't mind it and do appreciate working out the glitches so fast. I am sure we'll all get used to it.
Shi*t NYC Theater Tourists Say Apr 14

I saw recent photo of Sara from a fundraiser she's doing and she was pretty thin. Since her best friend died a few years ago, she's really been trying to get healthier. She did some interview that made it sound like she was, at least mostly, a vegetarian now.
She also said Evita is her dream role. I am sure she'll be back on Broadway when GA tanks, which has to be soon.
