Thanks for the review CS, I couldn't agree more :) I agree with WBAF too, WSS may be a better written show, but this current revival of HAIR is incredible and (for me) was better than WSS. I am in love with Will Swenson at the moment, having never seen him before, this was a great first introduction to him :) I am looking forward to seeingit again in two weeks when my brother comes to visit! GOOD TIMES!

My bad. I have a friend that confused her for Amy Sedaris so I thought you were thinking of the same person. But thank you for trying to throw it in my face. You are sweet.
Tovah is a WONDERFUL actress and well worth going to see, but she was not in Sex and the City, you may be thinking of Amy Sedaris who played Carrie's book editor with Molly Shannon.

Calvin, too funny....and SO true! I am in Chicago visiting the parents this week, my mother is always so worried that the restaurants they take me to aren't as nice in Chicago as they are in NY....considering the few places she like to go when she comes to see me in NY, I am wondering what she is basing this off of! HA!

I am not meaning to sounds like a jerk, but the thought of her playing Cassie makes me laugh a little. One, she is too old. Two, she isn't really in prime shape to play a dancer. Yes, Cassie is older, but she is still in great shape and can dance her ass off. I really don't care to see Miss LuPone in a red onsie, she is 59 years old!
HOWEVER, in t his case, I have to agree with the author, it makes the show make A LOT more sense if they nakedness (is that even a word) is included in the show. Diane's lines are lost if they keep their undies on. But, regional threater seems to like to keep the clothing on. However, I know Chicago's Balliwick is doing a rip off of Naked Boys Singing called Naked Lads Singing and from what my friends say they have NO problem being naked! HA!

Yawn on this one....VERY underwhelming, but I think the show speaks for itself. Lupone....Gypsy....nuff said.

This was one of the first shows I saw when I moved out here. I remember sitting in the rear balcony and ther ewas MAYBE 10 people in the entire balcony, so we all moved to the 1st row. I liked the show, Debra Monk was FANTASTIC! But I still remember my ex boyfriend totally falling asleep along with about 4 other people sitting next to us.
re: MATT DOYLE in for Groff in SA 07.14 Jul 16

I was there too! I was a little upset to see that Groff wasn't there, I took my friend who had never seen the show. BUT, Matt Doyle did a great job. A little hoarse at time and struggled a couple times, but overall, I thought he was good.
I agree that Lea seemed a little more "nervous" with him, which really worked out well. The rest of the cast supported him 1000% so it was really wonderful to see a bit of a fresh twist on the show.
