Waitress has fluffier parts but I think the humor is there to balance out the darker elements. There's a great deal of depth in the portrayal of Jenna.
I haven't seen them but have you considered Slave Play or The Inheritance? There's also Soft Power, Bella Bella, for all the women who thought they were Mad, Molly Sweeney, Dr. Ride’s American Beach House, and revivals of A Bright Room Called Day and for colored girls who have considered suicide/whe
I love Doctor Zhivago and even I'm like... who is trying to put on an amateur production of Doctor Zhivago? That score is too vocally demanding for high schoolers not to mention the content and all the stage effects.
Now that you mention it, I am curious about The Visit.

There are OTHER throwing babies from a train musicals? Do share.
I imagine I posted in whatever thread we had at the time but I found it highly flawed. It's Steve Mart
Ugly in what way? As others have said, do the costumes suit the character? If it's just a matter of being in a low-budget production, at least for female character costumes, the right undergarments and accessories can make some difference. If it has to do with how things fit and you don't know how to do alterations, a few discreet safety pins can help. I wouldn't recommend straight pins. Too easy to get stabbed accidentally or stab your scene partner.
Ugh, the Daily Mail. So much nonsense before getting to the point. She didn't just quote the Bible. 5 years ago (so she was 20 and should have known better) she wrote "I do not believe you can be born gay and I do not believe homosexuality is right." Frankly, if she uses her facebook page to voice opinions that are this controversial/inflammatory, it's surprising no one caught it sooner.

Optimistically (for you) it runs as long as Pretty Woman. I've only heard one song but I don't have high hopes. As with every ticket buying decision, you have to make the ultimate call. Is it worth it to see it again or would you rather gamble and wait?
My opinion means nothing. I still don't understand what people see in Memphis and Come From Away and Diana feels like it's probably on that level.

I feel like Waitress has done a great job with marketing. Most, if not all, the Jennas got billboards and/or ads all over the city. I don't know how they're feeling about using their ad budget since they announced closing t
Have you heard of Disneybounding? I feel like you're more likely to see someone dress vaguely in the style or color palette of a show that full on cosplay the way you would for Broadwaycon or Halloween. But like others have said, as long as you're not blocking anyone's view with a big hat or a Hairspray-sized wig, have fun. Why not?
Maybe I'll go early next year for the Curtain Call table if the selection is going to be so dismal elsewhere. I don't mind getting into it. I just want to haul some shirts and closed show merch. I feel like I mostly bought stuff this year because it was priced well and not because I really wanted it.
I really wish they would put all the tables with Playbills together. I feel like I wasted a lot of time figuring out which tables just had Playbills only to then have to get

Do you remember what else they had at the closed show table? Just curious. Maybe next year I'll go early again. But I was busy this morning and the year I went early I ended up overspending at first and t
I certainly didn't do as well as I did last year but I wouldn't call it a complete wash. Regardless of what I budget, I generally spend around $50 to $100. This year it was a lot closer to $50. My favorite find was the Mama Will Provide apron that I got as a three for $10 deal with two shirts. In hindsight I should have gotten more as gifts but they seemed a little flimsy at the time when I compared them to another table selling thicker aprons. Maybe I went too late in the day this ti
RE: The Music Man (and how hard is it to type it out? It's minimum 2 words.)
Josh Groban, John Legend, and Darren Criss are terrible choices. Harold Hill is not a baby-faced conman.
NPH, James Corden, Kelsey Grammer, Josh Radnor, Zachary Levi, and Alan Cumming are middling choices. There are drawbacks to each but I could see them all doing something interesting in the role and being able to sell a decent number of tickets with good word of mouth but casting any of
What? Why? I stopped reading Jesse Green as much because of the NYT paypall and some weaker reviews but Sara was doing a fantastic job. I didn't always agree with her (I had a blast at The Cher Show even if it needed edits and ran way too long) but her critiques were thoughtful and smart. And she's one of the only critics who has a dependably more progressive, contextualized opinion of the shows she's seeing.
I hope it's at least partially her decision and she wan
