I was there over the weekend and it was a disappointment. It really doesn't make a point beyond "fascism is bad and if we don't do something about Trump now, we're in trouble" and it felt like preaching to the choir. The actors are all very good but the direction is lacking so now of the performances are amazing. Plus it's long (about 3 hours, regardless of them billing it as 2:45) and the first act in particular drags.
I adored GFTNC at The Public and can't wait to see it again, and really enjoyed Tina (it's not a great show but Adrienne Warren is outstanding.) However, I adore Tony Yazbeck so much and Flying Over Sunset is the show I am most looking forward to this spring.
Jordan Catalano said: "What an absolutely insane choice of casting. I’ll be in town for “Sister Act” so I’m 100% going to see this but this will no doubt be the most intense Dolly Levi we’ll ever see. I can’t imagine who they’ll cast as Horace next to her."
I thought it was awful and inessential and typical John Doyle CSC stuff. There's nothing special about this production at all, and I wasn't all too thrilled with Stoll's performance. It's only 1:40 so it really rushes through the plot.
I saw this last night and overall I liked it but it did feel amateurish and disjointed. I also couldn't tell what time period this was supposed to be in, the score is sadly kind of a dud (the underscoring is really pretty though) and most of the cast is just wasted. Peter and Jasmine are quite good though.
I saw this last night and pretty much hated it. It's not much of a play, has no real conflict or payoff, and way way way too shouty (I told my boyfriend if I heard the word "scallop" one more time I was going to walk out). I love Raul and he's one of my favorites but he was really overacting last night.
