I have noticed on several "sites" that there are various clips of musical numbers from North Shore productions. Obviously not just preview clips but from full shows. Does North Shore film their productions for archival purposes or have they ever broadcasted as similar to Paper Mill (Follies, Crazy For You...)?
Thank you for that detailed information! I would have enjoyed the talk back!
With that said,
I caught this production last night -- It was captivating from start to finish. Gillian Anderson was sublime along with the rest of the company. Everyone stood out including the ensemble players. All of whom added to every element. It took me several minutes to warm up to Vanessa Kirby but I came to connect her energy/demeanor to that of Stella. Kirby is a fine act
I cannot answer to the effect in front of the curtain at the beginning, however, the device in their hands looked to be a small light bulb being switched on by the press of a finger -- a switch or small button.
When I saw the show several weeks ago, I could see that the patrons in Box left were leaning over several times.
With the staging the way it is, there is not much to be missed on the stairs or any major obstructions, as others have said. I do wonder though, how I would feel if I had to crane my neck over every now and then. The patrons did not look to comfortable.
