Given its setting in Depression era Minnesota, the tone is definitely somber. And while the book may not be the strongest, the "stars" are Dylan's songs and their new arrangements. Slow Train, Like a Rolling Stone, Hurricaine, and Duquesne Whistle were some of the numbers that were exciting numbers to break up the darker songs and ballads. Mare Winningham's Forever Young is so beautiful, touching, and haunting.
Im not sure of your budget, but since you asked for the best food, I’m a big fan of the Modern at MoMA. It’s a two star Michelin restaurant, but the bar room is more casual and has the same food that can be ordered a la carte. There are always many reservations in my experience (the bar room and the main restaurant have different reservations on Resy FYI).
I enjoyed seeing both. Can you see Slave Play this weekend, and Inheritance part 1 in the future? Sounds like you have time later to see part 2 of Inheritance, but with Hangmen going into the Golden, it may be good to prioritize seeing Slave Play first.
This is credited to BrodyFosse123 and is from CoC's run in LA. I actually had in mind a different artwork by the same artist of the OBC recording, but I think this photo captures the producers' change in marketing strategy. I'm not sure I saw Tonya Pinkins smile like that when I went to see it :)
It's fascinating that the board's detractors of 2019 mirror those of 2004. The tuneless criticism always shocked me. "I Hate the Bus" was on repeat on my giant iPod for many months! Even Mr Stopnick and Rose's songs are somewhat catchy, but I suppose it's all a matter of taste.
People also complained that the songs were too short, but this seemed consistent with the theme that things keep changing. The big numbers 1943, Roosevelt Petrucius, I Go
For those of you who saw this in the UK, is the score completely intact? I assume Clarke's performance was abridged for Olivier awards. Those lyrics that were cut ("murder my dreams so I stop wantin " ) are pretty important to understanding Caroline's arc.... They're also gorgeous/haunting against the piano playing "I Hate the Bus".
Yes, everybody gets chili and cornbread, not just floor seats. The benefit of the floor is that you can get in the chili line fast and go to the bathroom! They cut off the chili a few minutes before intermission ends, so some folks who chose bathroom first couldn't get chili.
That is a tough choice! Personally If I were offered the option to revisit one of these shows, I'd choose Oklahoma. Loved Ferryman (though I saw original cast), but this is a pretty thrilling revival of Oklahoma.
200s sections are the best. I don't think odds or even are better than another. I'm bringing family back next month. We're sitting FL217-221, but they are premium priced seats.
I sat in D122 on my first visit, which was perfect for the video elements, but the 100 section misses Curly's face for "People Will Say We're in Love", and I felt that the little podium was used a few times (so whoever is standing on it has his/her back to the audience seated i
