Is it the most overrated musical - No. Should it have won all the Tonys that it did - No. The score for the most part is very banal and forgetable. Having seen it once, do I need to see it again - No.

I agree with the producers decision. I lived most of my life in NYC but recently moved to South Florida. The three nearest theatres that Broadway tours go into - Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale and Miami - are horrible barns, and I wouldn't waste my money going. Unless you have seats in the front rows (which never are available to the public since they are subscribers who had them for years and years) the enjoyment of these shows, especially smaller ones is lessened. Even the last rows in most Broad

I missed his Macbeth - it came and went so quickly. I did see him in Othello as Cassio in the early 80's. His performance the night I saw it was remarkable in that he fell off the stage and into the lap of a stunned lady in the front row. This is of course was way before Cheers or Frazier.
I think he would make a great George, I would prefer Gary Beach as Albin. I hope HF really works the book better. I wasn't impressed with it the first time around.

Why in the world, if you are going over to London, with so much excellent theatre to choose from, would you see an American show like Millie or Fame? What a waste.
You must also eat at McDonalds when you go to Paris.

I agree, I particularly liked him in "Joe Egg" and "Barnum".
What a shame that Barnum wasn't video taped with him and Glen Close. Instead, they taped the London cast with that over inflated ham Michael Crawford and his horrible mugging. Dreadful from start to finish.
More kiddie shows where the audience can come in already knowing the plot and most of the songs and won't have to think or really listen.
Where are the new plays? This generation doesn't have an Arthur Miller, Edward Albee, Tennessee Williams, Lanford Wilson, Steve Sondheim or even Neil Simon. Instead we get a constant barrage of crap based on movies that everyone already knows.

This news saddens me deeply. I have always been an enormous fan of Mr. Gray. When I was a teenager I used to go to the performance garage to see his monologues. I was mesmerized when I saw him the first time, which is why I have seen almost everything that he has done since then. As good as his monologues were filmed, it was amazing to see him in person. He had an intensity and charm that drew you into his stories and made you feel he was talking directly to you. I had tickets to go see his new
