Evita: "A New Argentina" when the people are singing "Nationlisation [spelling is off but oh well] of the industries that the foriegners control..." and the piano is just banging on...when I saw/heard that I just shivered
Caroline, or Change (sadly missed this): Pretty much all of "Lot's Wife"
Spring Awakening: "Totally Fucked" always gets me for some reason...then again I am just the stereotypical teenage theater geek.
And that's all I can think of off of the top of m

If it's like I remember, the 2nd row is what's right in front of the stage, and the first row is kind of off set of the center of the stage (which juts out.)
It's not exactly limited view but you have to turn your head to see alot of the action. But it's so great to be that close to all that energy, makes the show even better.
Not in London often and knew I wouldn't like it...but a friend wanted to check it out.
I'll always wonder what I missed when I decided to opt out of History Boys for a green girl flying up in the air for the only moment of the show that kept my attention.

Why the hell are people being so negative? Sure that wasn't a perfect performance but I think it's safe to say it's better than most people on this board could do. Come on, can't we just let the people do their damn jobs?!? Sure you may not love her, but come on! Just remember for every negative thing your saying about someone, somewhere, someone else is saying something worse about you.
I wish her and all the other cast members the best of luck!
But seriously? Um...how about The Last 5 Years? It's a story of a relationship told from both the female and male perspective.

I can't get over how amazing this show was. We saw the 8 p.m. show on the 29th and were privledged to a Q. and A. with almost the entire cast afterwards. That was an experience I will never forget. They were all very INCREDIBLY kind at the stage door and I'm all but in love with Jonathan Groff.
We went out and bought tickets for the evening performance of the 30th the next afternoon just so we could see it again with some friends before we had to leave. I would have seen it many more ti
Mattbrain...what's your problem? Let me correct some of these HILLARIOUS stories:
-Some people come to the city to see shows on vacation. We all can't know what to do when we have a ticket to a different show. You're the one she's talking to, and your job is to do all you can to help her. SO DO YOUR JOB!
-If you lose something, do you not want some help finding it?
-Lots of people, particularly Theater people, are very open a
But the first real obsession, after the Theater Nerd title could be applied, would have to be RENT. I heard Seasons of Love and was hooked. Got home and got the whole CD. Then I started to branch out. So, RENT is pretty much the reason I'm such a theater junkie today
Just this year in fact we were denied Grease because of innapropriate content. Which I guess it has some in it, but everyone and there grandma's seen that movie and knows its all about the "bad" teens.
