I'm not sure if it's a glitch or because I'm a current subscriber, but the Ahmanson website is letting me add seats to my cart for Once On This Island and Torch Song. It appears the dates are as follows:
Torch Song - October 8, 2019 - November 10, 2019
Once On this Island - June 20, 2020 - July 19, 2020
I was at the first dress rehearsal in front of an audience (back on 1/12) and the energy was about the same. At the time I was hopeful that it would be more polished by the live show, but if this is all they could muster for the final dress rehearsal I doubt an extra day would have made much of a difference.
On a positive note, Vanessa Hudgens was by far the stand out on that day too and I thought she did a great job as Maureen.

I'm also going during spring break and for once have no clue what I want to see (most of the shows I wanted to see have passed). What shows will have all/most of their OBC by April?

EDIT: How can you judge a film so harshly that hasn't even been released yet?

I've also noticed a lot of Glinda's doing this for laughs (I've seen it three times and they were all the same, although Stacie was the worst). I'd much rather have Cheno's more subtle approach to t
I have no clue why they bothered going to E3 in the first place.

I recently saw the High School Musical tour here in Detroit (with my 5 year old niece) and everyone seemed to be loud. However the girl behind us (around 5 also) was singing to most of the songs and was constantly saying things to her dad. While the girl was talking fairly soft the dad was responding at a normal volume which got really annoying.
Best part of the show: When my 5 year old niece turned around and told the girl she wasn't supposed to be singing during the show.
1. Hairspray - Maybe it's because It's my favorite musical, but I think this movie is nearly perfect with only a few changes I didn't enjoy. 2. Dreamgirls - I've never seen the stage show so I can't compare it, but the movie is fantastic. 3.
