TOOTSIE the Musical: PREVIEWS START Apr 19

Mister Matt- I’m with you, the melody to (I guess its’s called) Dear John was so wonderfully interesting and reminded me of the best of what I love about Yazbeck. Definitely one of the best in the score.
Mike Barrett- I really enjoy The Prom’s score too, and for me, when The Prom’s lyrics are trying to be funny they’re more consistently laugh out loud funny than those in Tootsie, and when they’re trying to be touching they’re more consistently that than those in Tootsie. Tootsie does h

Saw this on monday night and have to echo many of the recent posts, the show is FUNNY. I think the supporting cast is just firing on all cylinders, boy, everyone is great. Cooper, Grotelueschen, Stiles, Rogers, Halston: all fanstastic.
I am a huge fan of Yasbeck’s scores, and I thought about 30% was wonderful, mostly the women’s material. The rest is fine, with fun, very Yazbecky rhythms and melodies, but the lyrics just aren’t as funny or inspired as his past work. Michael’s material,

If you check youtube, the clip of the number from the filmed version of the last revival runs about 10:50. From entering the scene till end of number. Now, I don’t think the dance arrangement in this revival is an *exact* recreation by any means, but it is similar and I imagine the runtime follows suit.

“...From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters," said Delman in a statement.
This reads to me like they’re taking the Bring It On approach. Like, new characters entirely. But if it has the feel, style, and heart of the original series this has potential and hopefully they’ll be able to come up with new characters as good as Rayna.

I guess the original press release did say performances would start in May, but now that I’m seeing the concrete dates, it didn’t occur to me that this would be part of the ‘19-‘20 season instead of this one. Really looking forward to this, regardless!

LOL, “Gettin’ the Head Over Margaritaville” is brilliant.

Have we seen him do a comedic role of this style before? He’s got a great voice, and wonderful dancer obviously, but just trying to imagine him doing something of this nature. I guess there is the whole Zangler thing in Crazy For You. Was he funny in that?

Saw the show, and Adam, tonight. Boy, is he great. Rick solid vocals, super charismatic, and even with some of that dialogue hes given, he kinda ran away with the show. I havent seen it before, but I found that he has a natural warmth and ease about him that made it believable that theres a relaxed, spontaneous guy inside. He really is a such welcome presence onstage every time Ive seen him.
...the show on the other hand, I found to be... lacking. There are glimmers of what this could
@haterobics, Kevin’s main song is called “Inutil” and deals specifically with his relationship with his father and their circumstances as immigrants.

This concert was straight-up glorious and this recording is such a wonderful reminder of how special it was. I’ll be hitting repeat on a lot of these tracks for a while. So glad it’s finally out! I can’t get over how great every single soloist sounds, especially (Dame) Kelli and Ross Lekites. As well as the orchestra. God, I wish I could go back in time to see this again.
I probably would have accepted that as well if it only occurred during emotional peaks in the show, but when I saw it, the cracks started right from the beginning (on the word "Louisiana" in the opening line...something that was pretty hard to forget) and continued all throughout the show. Her voice was so strained, in Lot's Wife she simply didn't have the strength to hit the top belt notes and could only stay on pitch her the quite section in her head voice. It wa

Totally hear what you’re saying Mister Matt, about the crackage. For me though, Tonya embraced her character’s struggle, and raw pain in such an intense way that her refusal to (in large part) back off of the notes, because of the strain she was experiencing, took the performance to a whole new level for me. It was Caroline, flaws and all. It’s part of why I found the performance so brave and moving. Totally a matter of opinion though.

Echoing the last couple of comments, I have a lot of understanding for the context of how these two races ended up. And what thrilling races they were!
Menzel’s utter uniqueness of look, voice, and presence were so right for Elphaba and she became the grounded center of a whole lot of junk flying around that stage. Not to mention, I feel like a lot of voters were like “we need to throw Wicked one big bone” if they were planning on voting for Avenue Q in the o
