On the other hand, the housewives from Bravo seem to have no problem getting cast in Chicago. Of course, they are significantly more famous I suppose which may cancel out some of their misdeeds on television."

I’m getting CAROUSEL revival vibes from this production already...and not in a good way."
I really liked the CAROUSEL production last year. I didn't think that production was miscast (this production was able to get all 4 leads Tony nominated!) Peck's choreography was amazing too (won the Tony!)
I think the issue a lot of people had with Carousel was with the directi
I thought the whole enterprise was pretty spectacular given the nature of the show. The glitziest jukebox musical to beat all jukebox musicals.
I went in with the same mindset as another poster; I’d only seen the movie once when it originally opened. So my mind wasn’t going to the places where it might be when I see the version of Spielberg’s upcoming “West Side Story” remake. Different animals, but you catch my drift.

Thank you, Ben Brantley. That review was unmitigated perfection!
"For one thing, it is — by cold critical standards — the worst of the lot, with a repetitive score, painfully forced rhymes, cartoonish acting and a general approach that mistakes decibel level (literally and metaphorically) for emotional intensity. But this ostensible amateurishness may be exactly what sells “Be More Chill” to its young target audience.
For anyone that's seen in the show in the past couple of days--could you please post the running time including intermission? Just need an estimate of what time the show lets out (in evening). Thank you!
Of the two Rob's, I would have preferred Marshall over Ashford. Though I love the thought of Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) or Bradley Cooper eventually sneaking in there. I mean, why hire a choreographer/director when this musical calls for so little dance in the first place?
