Instead of Hollywood so white, now it's Hollywood so light-skinned Latino? I looked at my program from the first tour and the casting in the movie is on par with the stage version.

That way you can all hang out in the one place churning up the same hatredand the rest of us can read about the previews which is what this thread is actually about?"
Interesting Mid-Show Mishaps Dec 9

During Harry Potter after the kids take the polyjuice potion to break into the ministry. Adult Harry started to leave the stage but suddenly stopped. He looked down, yanked at his robe then just scurried off leaving the robe on the floor. A small trapdoor opened up and a stagehand dressed all in black ran on the stage and grabbed it. It happened really fast but it was interesting because they do such a good job of hiding all the little secrets embedded in that stage.

If you follow Josh on Instagram, he often posts the soundcheck from each theater. It's usually the confrontation scene. I know it's not the same as seeing him l

The sides of my row were empty.This show, sadly, is in big trouble at the box office. Tell friends to buy seats now, not later. I don't see how it can stick around this winter. I liked the play and loved the production. It's unmissable for th
Tom Kitt has really done some wonderful work arranging Alanis Morissette's music here. Cheers to the performers, musicians, producers and sound engineers that worked on this album because it sounds PHENOMENAL.
Nick Cartell Les Mis Matinee? Nov 27

I saw the matinee of the tour last winter and the full cast (besides Eponine) was on. I would imagine he's performing the same schedule now especially because his run is over very soon. I've seen this show with multiple Valjeans (Hugh Panero, Peter Lockyear, Randal Keith) over the years and Nick is one of the best.

The Inheritance or Slave Play? Nov 24

I haven't seen Slave Play, but I have seen The Inheritance and thought it was spellbinding from beginning to end. The acting is on another planet, and if you're only seeing Part 1 then my advice is not to read anything because you run the risk of having the final scene spoiled.

When I saw MR in October, this was NOT true. The actors came out on stage maybe 15 minutes before the show started (not when the house was opened). You were allowed to take pictures before the actors came out but not after. The ushers kept telling pe

I've been on a couple of these tours and I highly recommend them. Even if you think you know everything about Broadway you'll still learn some great stuff. The guides are very friendly, engaging, and more than happy to break script any time you have a question. If I remember right it's only about $35 (plus optional tip.. but really you should tip) for about 2 hours which in NY is a steal. You also get a bit of a discount at their kiosk after the tour :)

But, I would say- if you do not love contemporary music- if you really love symphonies and operas and really do not love more commercial sounds- I think you might hate this."
I have no problem with contemporary music. The reason I hated this show was that they didn't give any moment musically time to breathe. The "love son
