OlBlueEyes- just watched that performance - she's absolutely a gifted performer....but what I'm talking about isn't a reflection on her talent. I'm not even sure it's something anyone can learn or change - she will always come across cold - at least to me. I'm not even saying she's a cold person, hell, I sure don't know her personally!
I've always found Gwenyth Paltrow to be this way - and it can really work to her advantage when a role ca
I haven't seen the production (not sure if I will) but I have to say I'm not surprised with what some are saying about Kelli O'Hara. I have seen her live in Nice Work if you Can Get It, and the King and I. I found her completely underwhelming in both. Her voice is a wonder for sure, and there really is no disputing that. But I have issues with her acting and overall presence. She came across in both shows as one of the coldest stage presence's that I have witnessed and I was l

Same for me. However- I live 2 blocks from the theatre, and walked up at 10:15am. The Box Office said I was the first one for the day to show up for rush. So theres literally no line if you go in person. I got the last row of the front m
I'd love to hear more about the physical production with regards to set and costume design as well as the orchestra size/sound. Does the production feel rich or cheap? Is it lush or simplistic? Mostly backdrops or realistic set units?
I kind of love hearing Broadway songs used in pop culture and thinking it's sort of cool that us 'broadway folks' know the history. I did wonder with Ariana's song if people nowadways more associated 'my favorite things' with Christmas than Sound of Music?

I am not fond of the ensemble numbers in this show. They feel very unnecessary and bland."
I'm a HUGE fan of the score, and even I agree generous cuts would be the right decision (goodbye 'The Lady's Paying'....always found that number super cringy and too campy). But they simply MUST have a fabulous

No picture or art is going to convey what the producers want people to see. The name itself is the marquee. So, when people seeTootsiewritten in HUGE font, people seeing it will be put on notice that there is now a musical adaptation of the movie. The movie's fame and name is what they want marketed."
Worst Broadway logo in a long time (and that's saying something). I can only hope it makes more sense when we see a full windowcard or playbill.
NY Times review: A CHORUS LINE Nov 17

Thanks for the review HeyMrMusic! Going on Sunday and can’t wait. I’m thinking that the cast is getting more comfortable now as this short run is really what would be previews for a broadway show. Curious if it really will transfer for a limited run on Broadway...
I guess I'm in the minority but I actually am happy to have a reliable broadway (no-stunt-casting) cast doing the original choreography and hopefully the original set design. This might be in part because I'm bringing my boyfriend who has never seen the show , so I am hoping he gets a similar experience to when I first saw the show.
I'm curious if they go with a big name for Zach....I know traditionally you barely see him, but they did stunt casting with Mario Lopez in the last revival. Also I was thinking they would try to get a pop star who dances for Cassie...someone like Ciara or Zendaya?
