Helen Shaw takes down both BOM and Hamilton on Vulture  Dec 24 2019, 07:12:47 PM
I knew from The Public that him writing so specifically for Diggs would be an issue for replacements....but lucky for me, I’ll never see replacements. I can’t believe people are paying so much for the lower quality cast.

I broke my own rule this time, but I try to avoid these types of threadsuntil after I've seen the show. The amount of bombastic bulls#!t on this board by wannabe actors and/or theater critics is waist deep. Please don't tell me that I'm only going to enjoy a showbecause of the amount of money I've spent on tickets, or because the set is the only thing the show has going

I didn’t say it was a bad show or that I was miserable. I’m saying that the overuse of song snippets impacted imo the weight and connection to the story. Therefore, I was aggravated bc if you’re only gonna use 1-2 lines and then the audience reacts to everything then you lose momentum. I’m a very happy person lol.

Mike Barrett said: "Oh I don't care if people like it or don't like it, I am just often shocked at the language used here to describe their experience fro posters who don't like it. Some posters make it sound like they truly hate theatre when they see something and they must tear it down, rather than sharing their opinion on it. Its just a flare for the dramatics mostly that is ridiculous. Hate a show all you want but it wasn't an "aggravating" experience fo

I found it to be aggravating. The sets and costumes were awesome but they were doing TOO much with the songs. It was frustrating when they used 1-3 lines from random songs bc the audience reacts to every one and I couldn’t fully get into the story bc every 30-60 seconds, it’s disrupted by a unnecessary lyric.. I’d rather have seen Hadestown again.

Any solo theatre goers wanna hang out after the Friday and/or Saturday shows?  Jul 1 2019, 10:43:45 AM

Idr him being portrayed as an abolitionist. I remember that being John Laurens

Ramos has been the most successful OBC member (outside of Lin). I'm sure no one expected that. Yay for him.

Yeah, I don't care for the fact that performers can win an Emmyfor a performance in a daytime program of a song that they sing eight times a week on Broadway. In my opinion, that cheapens the award.

That's a criticism of the category, though, not a dig at Cynthia or any other actor that has earned an Emmy that way. I mean

Stefanee Harris 

Zazie Beetz

Sondheimite said: "Cynthia Erivo is one letter away from an EGOT, my dude. Formally unknown British Chick is a comical way to describe her."

All 3 of the letters are from one Broadway role that allowed for some (legal) gaming. She's not known to the general public. It's comical that you think otherwise.

Cynthia Nixon for NYS governor?  Mar 19 2018, 09:33:14 PM
She has no chance. The unions aren't going for her. Upstate isn't interested in her social justice platform since it means higher property taxes and more squeezing of the middle class. A 200k house in WNY pays 7-9k in taxes. How much more can you ask from these people?

Celebrity Big Brother climax (spoiler included)  Feb 27 2018, 03:56:39 AM
Idk why the jury was so bitter towards Ross. If you think about it, except for Shannon, he didn't screw over either one of his final four alliances. Things lined up perfectly for him that he only had to evict Brandi bc she was against Marissa, which is understandable.

The Prince staging had the Perons in their pajamas during this number, while any of the stagings that tried to be “realistic” did not. So, if just depended on if the production was replicating Hal’s staging or not.

Thank you.

Let it go lawsuit  Nov 24 2017, 01:01:51 PM

Mister Matt said: "Hearing his song, I don't think the similarities are enough for a lawsuit against Disney. Not to mention, he'd still have to prove they were even familiar with his song at all. Suing Idina Menzel and Demi Lovato make zero sense, especially since the actual composer and lyricist don't seem to be named in the lawsuit. This is a play for money and publicity."

Not necessarily, Sam Smith had to pay Tom Petty and he claimed to not know the so

I just listened to the other song and I think he's got a case.

I would rank Ramos #2 bc even though he doesn't have a series or a record, he's popping up everywhere which means that he catches the eyes of casting. Only a matter of time until he hits a homerun "
