Part of the success of these types of plays is the "energy in the room" factor and the fact that the originating actors are more connected with their characters than other actorswho take them on. They need to "open up" the play for film, otherwise most people will probably be bored."

When the truth about the Jussie Smollett case came to light, I remember the first few days many people like you shouting these words too;"victim-shaming and name-calling!".

And that case is different, because 1. He admitted it. and 2. There will actually be a trial."

Curious about this too. The stage looks very deep from social media photos, so I'm wondering just how much of the staging is missed. There's only one date I can go, and I really want to, but I'd rather have tickets beforehand than risk not getting one for rush.

I don't think this spot makes that clear at all. To me, it just looks like a spot a show would make to try to market an older musical to a younger audience, not ne

I submitted mine the day after the third preview, and I must not have been the only one who wrote that it was confusing since they're doing that insert now (which obviously isn't a solution, but it would have helped a little when I saw it).
RWPrincess said: "I also found it interesting that very few producers were listed in the Playbill for this. With all the Alice references, I would have thought some mention of Disney would have been there but I didn’t see anything. It’s possible maybe they just didn’t want their name mentioned publicly. I think they did something similar with Peter and the Starcatcher. "

I was there tonight and will echo nearly everything VotePeron said. The "plot" is confusing, and yes, it kind of felt like you also needed to know the story of Alice by heart to really get what's going on. Shiek's music is truly gorgeous almost throughout, and there are some stunning sequences and performances, but it's pretty weak overall. Thank God for Noah Galvin and Natalie Walker, who embraced how bizarre this is and gave us some laughs.
