I quite liked the show. Was it particularly groundbreaking and inventive? No but I was entertained during the show (both times I saw it). Seeing it on Tuesday I noticed that cut out some smaller parts from act one (like when the characters asked Derek's character to come to a party to celebrate his Harvard admission) and I do think they are trying to find ways to tighten act 1 up pacing wise.
Talking to Patten after the show she did say there were more changes that they were
Hey so I'm doing a feature piece on the preview process for a theater show and I was wondering those that have seen shows while in previews--why do you choose to see a piece while in previews, if you see the piece again after opening do you find yourself looking for any changes that might have been made from previews, how important (or unimportant) do you think the preview process is, and in general what are any thoughts you might have on the preview process.

Why can’t people on these boards accept that and move on. If you don’t like him and his performance abilities but just say that and stop hiding behind the father excuse.
I went to the show tonight and I thought the play was really solid. I thought that the cast gave really good performances and the last fifteen minutes were heartachingly real. The only annoyance I had was I sat in front of two pool who work with the show and they were taking notes and whispering furiously to each other, they seemed upset at someone’s lack of urgency in speaking but I didn’t catch who.

Yes... and asking about a possible bargain at both tables at around 6PM, I was greeted with two rather ...um... rude (another word I'd like to use, but I'm a gentleman) replies... A rather smug woman at the HOH booth gave me
Most award pundits think that the acting Emmy is Darren Criss’es to lose. And EGOT is an EGOT just becsuse you don’t like someone or how they achieved it doesn’t make it any less real or special. Moreover why do people care like?
