I thought of Madame Armfeldt like the rest of you. Elaine Stritch spoke almost the entirety of her two songs. I’d think Julie could do the same thing.

I’m not sure you need to wish it flops. I think it will inevitably be one of the biggest flops we’ve seen in recent memory. For some people, West Side Story is even more sacred than Oklahoma. This isn’t going to sit well with many people, and I’m not sure there’s a tourist demand for a new WSS.
Just read it. So dramatic. She does not look like a “hooker.” Marianne has already been praising Lenk’s sexiness and New York vibe. It’s a definite change in interpretation on Marianne’s behalf. I didn’t see the production in London, but for what it’s worth, Brantley did give Rosalie a major rave, I’m sure it wasn’t a very easy decision to not bring her over.

It’s an excellent show. The bad word of mouth stems from a group of people who somehow convinced themselves that the show is “transphobic.” Many of them likely have not actually seen the show.
qolbinau said: "The photos of Katrina and pants further make me wonder if her interpretation will be of a powerful, sexy woman that has men at her fingertips rather than a more wholesome, girl-next-door type that is trying to make her way in life but not quite getting there (Craig)...until the end of the show of course."
I think this is exactly what they’re going for. Even styling her with the big hoop earrings lends itself to this interpretation. I think she&r

Wow, this was quite the trick! I like my seat, but I would've preferred being on the aisle, which shows up with your method.
