If one took the time to see that the August Wilson doesn’t have a balcony, one could take two more minutes to say look further on Google, or look up Mean Girls on Ticketmaster, instead of searching for and reviving a six year old thread.
Saw it tonight and while in the morning I’m sure I’ll be nitpicking, right now I’m on a high. It was really a blast. I was very worried after the sh*tshow that was Summer, but a standout cast, insanely exhausting choreography, excellent song arrangements and sound, and a slick production made the evening fly. Could we all have as cool as introduction as Ephraim Sykes?
Yes, I was annoyed by the side trip into “Motown: This Was Also Going On The M
I still can't imagine this happening. And even if it's done, how many Best Lead Actress Oscars have been awarded for musical performances? Nicole Kidman and Rene Zellweger arguably could've won their years, but instead won a year or two later. So many Glenn can lose for Sunset and then win for the follow up to that.
Looking at it from a TV angles viewpoint, I though the proscenium made for some pretty pictures, depending on how it was lit - straight on though, it looks weird. I loved that they did for Bette's number, but Jennifer's backdrop was ugly. But I thought the use of the red and the patterns worked really well as backdrops to the speeches.
But what really annoyed me were those stairs. The last thing these people, who are so distracted thinking about what they're about to say in

It wasn'tIain Armitage, was it? I ran into him all dressed up in a tux at The Color Purple a few years back."
No, it wasn't, but I totally forgot about those days, he's too busy being a huge CBS star now!
BE MORE CHILL (Broadway) Previews Feb 25
2019, 01:50:13 PM
Saw this show last night. Mostly enjoyed it. Don't know anything by Joe Iconis, and song were catchy and well-arranged. But could I hum you a number from the show? Not at all. And that first act closer goes on way too long, I started dozing off. But some good performances overall and a strong book. I honestly haven't a clue how it'll do come awards season.
I will say it was definitely a different audience last night than the usual Broadway crowd, but for the most part they were definit
I think appreciation for these had gradually been taken over by live-tweeting to see who can come up with the best snark. I never expected Hair to actually happen, and after the reaction to Rent, I just knew this was dead in the water.
Any updates on this? I not sure I get what the plot is supposed to be, something about Peter Noone? The newly released production images don't help, and their website doesn't show a song list or even a cast list.
The OP changed the subject thanking Waverly Gallery/Shubert/Golden Theatre for this great evening, but I really wish he stuck to the original "Shubert not postdating for Waverly? Really?!" to show the great sense of entitlement that precluded being able to be let into the show, including his "that's how it should've been done" as he was finally let in. I mean, I'm glad he got to see it. but wow, but wow. The nerve.
The Curve announced today that the UK and Ireland Tour of To Kill a Mockingbird has been cancelled, blaming Scott Rudin:

RWPrincess said: "I wonder if Disney did this or if the actors left by choice. Looks like I'll just miss them as I'm seeing this on Feb 9."
I'll be a year next month that the show started previews, so it's about the time the cast starting turning over. I'm sure as with most actors, they want to move onto something new, I can't imagine Disney forcing anyone out that doesn't want to go.
I'm one of the few that prefer the revised version, but that said, I'm still shocked that a production that still regularly sells out is going to be dropped for what many consider a lesser version. Maybe they figure most tourists won't notice the difference so long as there's a Les Mis in London that will pick up right after the original closes?
In terms of new production's cast, I think in London they tend to begin new contracts at the same time, so maybe
