GeraldJ2 said: "I saw the 2018 preview performance of CAROUSEL on Saturday March 17th at 2:00 PM. Glad I did not take many of these harshreviews too seriously. I still went.
In Spring 2015, I saw CAROUSEL done by theChicago Lyric Opera with Steven Pasquale.Laura Osnes, Matthew Hydzik, Charlotte D'Amboise, Jenn Gambatese, Denyce Graves. Jarrod Emick and Tony Roberts. I was hoping CAROUSELwould head to Broadway in some form.
I'm not a sure who this guy is. But I caught Miss Saigon again tonight. And the understudy for John Antoine L. Smith was on. Both play the role great. But the understudy brought a little something extra to the role. His rendition of Bui Doi was stellar. Not over sang not all the riffing. It was just perfect. The way I think the song should be sung. His acting was incredible as well. If you ever get the opportunity to see him, its worth it!

I saw the show in June 1991 (the Saturday matinee before the Tonys) and again with the original cast in October 1991 and the alternate played Wednesday matinees and Saturday evenings. After Lea left, I saw the show several more times with different casts and the alternate schedule was always Wednesday evenings and Saturday matinees.
dodger106 said: "After months of anticipation, saw the 3/14 preview (yes, the one where the helicopter malfunctioned), and was generally underwhelmed by the entire production. Part of it is staging, and the irritating tendency these days to build out stages that obstruct views, while concentrating so much action downstage where it is barely visible. (We literally could not see any of Kim and could only see the top of Chris' head in the final scene, although we could see everyone

Great point! They need to be very careful with this. For some reason the director thinks this is realistic, when in fact, it's the opposite. The language has been singing from the start, a
Harpz2006 said: "I haven't seen a lot on here about Lianah Sta. Ana- I saw her at last week's Saturday matinee. My sister and I love Miss Saigon since seeing it as kids at our local dinner theatre. I thought Lianah did a great job and was emotional and heartbreaking and committed, but she just sounded like she had a cold/didn't her full voice. She was pretty soft and her voice had a very covered sound. My sister who is not as theatre-obsessed, made similar comments, comme
QueenAlice said: "It made sense for Jonathan Pryce to have the final bow in the original production. Aside from the fact his performance was one of the greatest in the history of musical theatre (and has never been touched in the role) he was an established known star. Angela Landsbury took the final bow in SWEENEY as perhaps a similar point of comparison.
But I agree, in this production it makes no sense for the Engineer to have the final bow. Jon Jon would honestly
A Director said: "This is no reason to revive this show. Why do we need to see this show in 2017?
Perhaps its relevancy to what's actually going on in this country and around the world? Could that have something to do with it? Or do you live in another world where the refugee and immigration saga aren't happening? Why is ANY show ever revived? Why is Hello Dolly being revived again? Why was the Color Purple reviv
