With a rule that is so inconsistently enforced, generally acknowledged to be outdated, and with many extremely notable cases of being broken- names like Steven Oremus, Alex Lacamoire, or Dave Malloy come to mind- it is very strange that they would crack down in such a harsh way on Charlie Rosen.

And if a show is as established as this one, the likelihood of any sort of substantial change is even more unlikely. You’ll just see tweaks that casual theatregoers would not even register.

While not sold out, the show is decently sold through at least the end of March (the latest I looked on Telecharge). But from the get-go, I had qualms about how this was going to parlay a very young internet fandom into consistent ticketbuyers.
Dollypop said: ""I Am Ashamed That Women Are So Simple" is taken directly from Shakespeare (almost verbatim). To change it to "People" is wrong and misses the point the Bard was making in the play's denouement. This is blasphamy!
As I've said before, we're going overboard with political correctness. New works should rightly reflect current trends. Don't tamper with the classics!"

For those interested, I just passed by the theater and there looked to be about 20 people in line. It’s the Friday before a holiday weekend, so I’m not surprised there were more.
QueenAlice said: "Well the book absolutely covers a decade, but its possible the musical condenses things. But I stick by my thought that if this is about a friendship that lasts 3 years there isn't quite the pathos. I mean, isn't WICKED basically BEACHES with green make up? And that covers eons."
It's been years since I've seen Wicked, but I feel as though the musical adaptation's timeline is very vague. It certainly doesn't feel like years a
I'm shocked by the runtime... this really seems like something that would need a tight 90-100 mins, like Little Shop. The run time suggests that there's a lot of extraneous material, or a looser focus.
Can't believe this hasn't been posted on theatre sites- including BWW- yet, but five time Academy Award nominee and veteran of the stage (with 2 Tony nominations) Albert Finney passed away today at age 82. He was also Daddy Warbucks in the Annie film.
You're telling people how to react, as well. You did it to me, just slightly further up this thread.
And my post was referring to people's opinions about Altomare, not about you. This whole flare up started when you lashed out at someone for saying they personally thought her performance was "nothing special," and then you've been in an aggressive posture ever since.
Eh, there will probably be bootlegs. There were bootlegs of Into the Woods, as well as other shows in the park. Park productions typically escape bootlegger's notice since they're less in-demand among the fan set and harder to get into.
For Disney, this production basically will be a trial balloon to see if the show works and to gauge interest, at little cost to them and with virtually no risk (see also National Theatre's Pinocchio, or Mary Zimmerman's J
