However, the choice to cut half the cast of an already small scale show is baffling to me. Couple that with booking a mostly forgotten show from 10 years ago with no recognizable names to even the theater community, and booking houses that would absolutely eat a 5 person production. This was a recipe for disaster.

Won Mary Poppins, American Idiot, as well as preview tickets for Brighton Beach Memoirs. Also got tickets for some magic show or the bubble show, but forgot to ever use them.
Besides that, I usually just buy souvenir programs. I always look for interesting props or something along that line, but have never really found anything.
Last year Charlie and the Chocolate Factory had a really interesting tophat that was tall and spindly. Not really sure exactly where it came from as it was not the one used for Wonka, but it was definitely quality and a custom piece. Anyway, it was som

Im sorry, but this argument to undermine critique is so illegitimate. Watch a Trump rally.

Lydia spent the entire show referencing her dead mom ad-nauseum. When Juno, who is revealed to be Beetlejuice's mother, is killed (I think Beetjuice killed her but I was pretty checked out by that point) he says:
"Hey Lydia, look, we both have dead moms now."

I will say, there is a payoff to perpetual "Dead Mom" that I thought was the funniest part of the show. I actually burst out laughing when that finally came around
Someone in a Tree2 said: ""I suggest that "The Miller's Son" from ALNM is about as raunchy as it gets"
I love "The Miller's Son" to death, one of the most gorgeous in the cannon. However raunchy you may consider it, (for me--not much), comedic it sure ain't, which was my earlier point. I think Sondheim is a genius, but he's always been surprisingly weak on writing raunchy songs that make me laugh. ("Welcome to Kan
She-Devil! Specifically by David Yazbek in the heightened style of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. It is already structured to work so well as a musical, has wonderfully large characters, and Mary's pink palace alone would be worth staging it.

The curtain and pre-show lighting are amazing. The sandworm is incredibly realized. The Miss Argentina number I guess isn't so bad. But, that is about it.
It was otherwise a complete mess. There are just so many head-scratching choices made in this show.
Watering down characters, cutting iconic bits (how incredible would the model have been on stage), bizarre restructuring and then total abandonment of the plot, the most generic music I've heard in a while.
I didn't n

Having seen the first preview, I am pretty shocked that they haven't had the actor playing Obama tone back the impression. His performance felt like he was in a completely different production, and it was distracting.
