"She said to me, "Wicked is nothing. You will be bored, probably go deaf, and die". "Wicked is not good show. Go out there, see a REAL show, like um what could you see, oh, why don't you go to see Legally Blonde, or Phantom of the Opera or The Sound of Music". Also, she said "Wicked. You don't even need to have any talent for that. You don't even need to study for that. You just read the script, and that's it." - JoeKv99

The Public Works shows are super fun- TWELFTH NIGHT was great last year. I think it's a smart way for Disney to test out HERCULES on stage to see if it has a future, show some community love, and give a little extra buzz to the reopening of the Delacorte!

Bandstand and Drowsy are touring....? I doubt the Ahmanson would host a non-Union tour. And I assumed Torch Song would be a small tour, like Falsettos or Caroline Or Change.
Cursed Child will be in San Francisco for probably a minimum of three years, and I’m gonna assume they’d want the Pantages, Dolby, or even the Orpheum. Something grand that they can add a magical touch to.

I’m surprised The Band’s Visit and My Fair Lady aren’t going to the Ahmanson as well! What do they have left for their season, besides Once On This Island and Torch Song?
Good season, just not a fan of the Dolby for musicals. I saw their Cirque show years back and it’s a great space, just so so big!
I'm surprised to hear comments on Craig not sounding great. Her voice is so incredible on the LIGHT PRINCESS cast recording, and I also heard that understudies have gone on recently. Maybe she's still not fully recovered?
Honestly, I think the show was brilliant at ART. They could tighten up about 10 minutes off of the show, but it accomplishes a lot with relevant topics and has incredible arrangements of already great music. "You Oughta Know" is probably the most thrilling musical number I've seen on stage this year. This would be a hit, I think. I have a feeling they'll wait a season, with MOULIN ROUGE and HADESTOWN. If not, I'll just hope for a cast recording or EP of the new song
For what it's worth, I got a rush ticket around 6:45pm for an 8pm show and was third row in front mezz. Totally worth it! The cast was great and the show was a fun take on an interesting subject matter.
If they can cut 20 minutes of unnecessary musical medley additions and add some gravitas to the final moments of the show, this has the potential to be long-running hit and not just a 3-4 year hit. It's my favorite film of all time, and I can't wait to see what they change from Boston to Broadway!
I was lucky to see MAMMA MIA pre-Broadway at the Shubert. I miss having a touring venue on the west side, especially that housed such big productions. The Los Angeles runs of SUNSET BOULEVARD, RAGTIME, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, CATS, and LES MISERABLES played there.
A year of HAMILTON makes sense, and a year is enough time to make it not burn out too quickly. WICKED came to Los Angeles for two years after their run in San Francisco. The Dolby is a nice venue for shows like th
Interesting how the most hyped shows have no dates or venues yet: MOULIN ROUGE, HADESTOWN, AINT TOO PROUD, JAGGED LITTLE PILL, TOOTSIE, GIRL FROM THE NORTH COUNTRY. Here's hoping we get a heads up soon!

RuPaul as Lola? lmao omg no really tho..."
In that same vein, I am begging to see Kennedy Davenport as Lola! She can sing, dance, and has the comedy chops.
