I agree with 1000%! It's also how I felt about the movie. A lot of flash and style but NO substance whatsoever. I found myself bored, even, in different parts of the show. For a trip that included Christmas Carol, Derren Brown, Jagged Little Pill, Little Shop, and The Inheritance - ending with Moulin Rouge! was a severe let down and by far my least favorite of
Went to this tour last night 11/30 in Pittsburgh. Was so excited to see it as I haven't seen Les Miz in a long time so felt like I was visiting an old friend. Unfortunately, things went downhill quickly. This tour is in abysmal shape. The ensemble was basically fine, but the only lead who was worth her paycheck was Madame Thenardier. Everyone else was off-key and either sleep walking through their roles or camping it up and completely over-acting. In the hundreds of times I've seen th
Went to the kiosk this past weekend while I was in the city. Super fun, great merch, and one of the nicest people I've ever met in my life!!! Will definitely make this a traditional stop on all NYC trips from here on out!!!
I have a ticket to see Jagged Little Pill this Saturday afternoon and I am considering skipping it to go see Evita instead. Hate to lose out on the money for the ticket, but this sounds like such a not to be missed production. Opionions?!?
Reading the comments on this thread are getting me more and more excited to see this Thursday evening. Christmas Carol has always been one of my favorite stories and have obsessively sought out not only the original book, but every film/TV version I could get my hands on. My favorite is the George C. Scott TV version from the 80's.
I am sitting Right Orchestra, B 2. Can someone confirm if this is 1st or second row?!? IS this the seat taboo was referring to?!? Also, any update
For anyone who has been there, any word on merch? Trying to work out a budget for my upcoming trip and it seems this time in NYC is going to be pretty light on the wallet souvenir wise as things I'm seeing don't seem to have a ton of merch yet. Last I heard Derren Brown has no merch and most of the others will just be magnets since only one (Moulin Rouge!) has a program that I'm aware of. Thanks!
I have tickets for November 21st so I am anxious to hear people's thoughts starting after tonight's performance. I am really rather excited for this show as Christmas Carol is one of my all time favorite stories and own almost every movie version of it available on DVD/Blu-ray. Excited to hear what people think of this version and to see it in a couple weeks.
I have had great luck the last few years, regionally, in being a larger actor cast in some roles I wouldn't usually be considered for. Mortimer in "Arsenic in Old Lace," Edward Bloom in "Big Fish," Robert in "Boeing, Boeing" to name a few. In each case I've been told by one or more audience members that when they first heard I'd been cast in said role, or the first time I came on stage, they were doubtful about me playing it because of my size b
