I was at the workshop last night. The lyrics were disastrous, but the score was incredible. I didnt really notice any "dialogue" to be honest, it just proceeded from song to song to song, and I thought it worked fairly well.
The cast was ok, considering they are all Harvard undergrads - loved Tatiana Wilson as the Mother, who was fantastic, and whoever played the brother was also incredible.

The owner of CAP (who is also directing the show) is jewish. Just call and ask to talk to Bruce and ask him about it and everything... jeez :-P No need to cause a huge stink on a forum over the whole situation.
Oh, YPT Les Miz. Have you ever done a show at CAP before? You are in for some interesting times :-P

Maybe I'm crazy, but I'd like to see Green Day's album "American Idiot" staged. I'm not sure if they put the storyline (yes, there's a storyline) on display at the concert tour they did for the album, but I just think it would be so cool.

Rocky Horror revival has an intermission written into the script (right after Rocky & Frank's wedding), but I'm not sure if it was performed that way. I've seen productions with and without, and I don't see much of a difference either way.

Count out Tarzan and Wedding Singer automatically - why see two shows with mixed (in tarzan's case, mixed-to-negative) reviews when the above 5 I have mentioned have all gotten very positive reviews?

I wear whatever I feel like wearing to the theater - usually jeans and a t-shirt, or shorts and a t-shirt if it's the summer. Sneakers or flip-flops if I want.
I do not talk during the performance, I never bring my cell phone, I don't eat or disrupt the show in any way whatsoever.
Nobody has said anything to me yet, and if they did I'd just remind them I'm a paying theatergoer who is causing no distress to anyone around him except the nosy bastard who felt like commenting on my
I enjoyed the musical up until that point... then I lost interest. I really didn't like it at all, much of Clara's dialogue was way too developed to be like that of a 10 year old, even too much for a 15 year old.
Also, our school went to see RENT a few years ago, and afterwards our teacher wanted to talk about it. He says "For those of you that missed out, it really is an excellent opportunity for everyone. Everyone could enjoy this
