I did too. I watched the performance remembering why I love theatre so much. Thanks again for the reminder.

I agree with Dollypop. I was fortunate to see this production twice. My parents took me once and then it ended up my drama class went to see it too. George Rose stole every scene he was in, he was perfect! I also loved Ms. Andrea and Mr. Coote, repeating his take on the Pickering , was perfect.
It was also such a treat seeing the original set and costumes.
Everything about this revival was wonderful, but Mr. Rose's performance will always be the sta

Thanks Hogan for the reminder. I would have forgotten all about it!

I am proud of the musicians too. It's the AFM who I am not. And, having worked with several opera and theatre companies (long time ago) ... it is ALWAYS the AFM.

Wow! What an absolutely STUPID idea. The reason to see this is the environmental aspects. I couldn't imagine seeing it in a proscenium theatre , let alone any one of these oversized touring venues.

I saw both performances and Tony Shaloub deserved the award.

That's the perfect reason NOT to see "Ain't Too Proud".

She doesn't have the name recognition, but I would love to see Harriet Harris do the part.

Wow, I couldn't disagree more with what a lot of people are saying. Art should generate strong emotions, both good and bad. I actually love it when I hear someone say they hate a show that I loved. I listen in to find out why- do they have valid arguments? Good theatre should generate discussions, debates and even arguments.
On a side note, sometimes I find shows I've thought I've hated right after the curtain has gone down are shows I remember the most. There are times whe

An audience member gave his opinion of a show AFTER it was over and you find that objectionable? People have a right to their opinion. As long as he didn't interrupt the show, who cares???

That's not relevant. since these were affiliated organizations, company members wouldprobably be considered to be in positions of power over students.

Maybe I'm wrong but I think Alexandra Waterbury was never an employee of NYC Ballet. She was a student at School of American Ballet, the school of the Ballet Company and a training ground for new talent. I find this entire thing disgusting, but morals for things not related to work are not a fireable offense. Likewise, most certainly NYC Ballet will be dismissed from the lawsuit because their term of employing Chase Finlay was not on condition he have an affair with or sleep with Ms

I'd see Oklahoma because it is in such a unique space. This won't tour and if it did, it won't work.
Having said that, all three shows are great, so you really con't lose.

Another reason to do any cast recording is to entice regional , community and high school/college theatres to do it. Since the only good thing about the show is the puppet, once this production closes I can see the show disappearing forever (Thank God!)

Congrats to the cast and crew for great reviews. I loved the show except for one thing. Someone has to explain Reeve Carney to me. His voice is ugly, he can't act and he's not really that good looking that the other two things wouldn't matter.

| Dolly's Age? Apr 12

The fabulous Ruth Gorden was 59 when she originated the role of Dolly in Thornton Wilders "The Matchmaker" the play "Hello Dolly" is based on. Shirley Booth was in her 50s when she did the movie. I think 30's and early 40s is a bit young. Dolly was supposed to have been married for a long time and widowed for a long time. 50's seems to be the ideal age. Barbra on the other hand was completely miscast in the role.

That shows how little standing ovations mean. I wouldn't know about the ones at Kong. I was comped an excellent ticket and still walked out halfway through feeling my time had been wasted.
