I was at the invited dress at ART the other night. The original creative team is attached, and there are new numbers in the show. The piece is very much still in development, and ART has basically become a pre-Broadway incubator, so I wouldn't rule it out!!
A cast recording is enormously expensive to produce. Keep in mind that The King and I currently boasts one of the largest casts and orchestras on Broadway, and they've all got to be paid. It's safe to assume these songs were cut to stay within a budget.

I agree: an accessible score is important for the type of audience Weinstein wants, and hiring a new team for the score was probably a smart move. But I also think that the new score really is not good at all. Certainly hummable, but in an irritating doesn't-make-you-wanna-listen-anymore kind of way. I hated every second of it. (The orchestrations are also atrocious.)

I mean, I went a second time. I was rooting for the show, but I thought it was painfully trite and horribly designed.

"Does anyone know if the cast of Aladdin did anything special tonight for RW?"
According to a friend, the audience was given lyrics to "Friend Like Me," and there was a sing-along during the curtain call in his memory. Here's hoping a video turns up. Sounds like a beautiful tribute.
A broadcast of Heathers like there was for Legally Blonde Jul 9

From the official Heathers Facebook page: "Have you John Hancocked the ?#?HeathersMusical? petition yet? A very passionate Corn Nut started a Change.org petition (keep it away from JD, please) to urge MTV to film the staged version of HEATHERS. Needless to say, we wholeheartedly approve. If you agree, why not sign?"

I've seen the show already, so I'm going to pass... but if you have the chance to see this show, I HIGHLY recommend it. It's well worth the price.

I rushed last Saturday, and was 3rd in line at 8:45. I ended up snagging 2 Golden Circle seats, 4th row dead center for the matinee.
Is row 1 to close for Rocky? May 27

I assume so, as that's what I got for rush! :) That said, maybe they just had a few pairs of unsold seats in the golden circle. The folks in line next to me were a row behind me!

I rushed the show last Saturday for the matinee, and I was 5th row, dead center in the golden circle. I was 3rd in line and (I think) the first to buy tickets for the matinee. (I also got in line at 8:45am.)
