Also, major cast change of the role of GUS this past week. Any word why?

In my humble opinion she (Ms. Rosie)should put together and star in a musical verion of the movie SHE-DEVIL that starred Roseanne Barr and Linda Hunt. That, I would pay $100 to see her in!

All were more than adequate...actually very very good. Judging by the album they met all the vocal stuff. I lost my program at the Four Seasons having a midnight Club Sandwich, so I don't know the real names of the actors, but Tracey and Motormouth were peak! Motormouth was actually an understudy, too....I'll see if I can dig out the real names from the website!
I did not see the B'way version, and can only imagine Harvey's "Edna"; but Bruce Vilanch - playing in front of a loving hometown Chicago crowd - really was a sweet and fun Edna.
I am completely familiar with the CD of the show and actually thought it was easier to understand Bruce's enunciation; granted his voice is WAY different than Harvey
'BROADWAY'S LOST TREASURES' Tonight @ 9:30pm PBS Nov 28

In my humble opinion, this show is the pits.... Few original cast numbers...and most of the vocals were poorly recorded and lip synched even worse. I swear, that on a couple it's as if they simply qued up an old album in the control room and set the old girls out there to struggle around those ugly geometric sets.
This is a pure case of FALSE ADVERTISING -- this ain't no treasure trove!

Brad Oscar is doing a superb job as MAX here in Chicago! I was bowled over by his singing especially....I saw him here in 2001 as FRANZ and wasd delighted by his performance then. He's a great Max and should stay with the tour...not understudy Mr. Lane!
