Ah right. I always mix the two up. But yeah, it has a lot of story that could be expanded on. Really a lot of games, but especially rpg's, have enough lore and worldbuilding that a decent show could be made out of them. Dragon Age, Mass Effect, Fallout, Legend of Zelda (though Zelda would be pretty tricky - we've seen before what we can get when we try to actually give Link a voice...). And many more.
And alas I don't have connections. I wish I did because this would be fun
The hype and excitement of E3 this week has had me in that kind of mood to enjoy one of my other loves in life - video games - and got me to thinking - there's been a lot of great musicals done by adapting all sorts of media - but to my knowledge there hasn't yet been an attempt to adapt a video game's story. I could see certain games possibly working either as a commercial endeavor, artistic, or both - some games really do have complex and beautiful stories that could lend themse

You haven't even seen it so your opinion is completely invalid.

Literally nothing wins as Broadway is gone forever as Trump nukes the entire district as punishment for Robert De Niro's actions on the Tony Awards. The only performance in the season will be De Niro's public execution in one of the theaters before the missiles are fired.
It deserved everything it was awarded with, just as every single Tony award that has ever been awarded was deserved by the recipient. There is NO SUCH THING as an "undeserved" Tony - if the Tony voters chose it, then it deserved it because it was good enough in the eyes of the Tony voters to get the award.
Them winning a Tony does not mean you are not allowed to dislike it. It does not mean that you are not allowed to wish a different show would have won it instead, nor does

I remember there being an intermission during the Fathom event of Miss Saigon when that happened. And then another sort of intermission after the show ended before they showed a bunch of extra bonus stuff.

Bands Visit is not even remotely boring."
Boring is subjective. I know if the whole show was like that Tony performance, than to me The Band's Visit is extremely boring
As bad as both Stans and Elitist Snob Gatekeepers can be, the divisions and horrific fandoms in Broadway are nothing compared to many other areas - especially video games. In comparison, this whole weekend including while the Tonys are going on, E3 is also happening - the biggest event of the year in the video gaming world. And the console wars are at a fever pitch. Fans of Broadway shows have nothing on the Sony vs. Microsoft vs. Nintendo stans flame wars.
For me personally, Once on This Island, My Fair Lady, and SpongeBob had the best looking performances that made me absolutely want to see the show. Summer, Carousel and Frozen were alright but had flaws and not enough to make me want to see it. Mean Girls was a mess and definitely convinced me I do not want to see that. And unlike the impression most seemed to get, for me The Band's Visit was a complete turn-off. I zoned out about midway through it. Emotion and thought-provoking and all t
ScottyDoesn'tKnow2 said: "Thinking on it,Carouselreally made the dumbest choice for its performance."
I respectfully disagree. Considering even who they chose to introduce it, it's clear they realized the strongest point of their show was the dancing, especially as they won Best Choreography, so they chose a number that would show that off and bring the focus of the show and why people should see it on the great dancing/choreography.. To be fair thou

Now that the elititists have taken firm control of the industry again, SpongeBob, all of its cast and crew, and all of its fans, will be summarily executed. The Palace will remain open during construction solely to showcase the torture and executions of all who have different opinions and tastes from the Broadway elite. Disney will allow this to happen because THEY want to be the sole Corporate Overlord in charge of Broadway, and will accept this huge pushback against Viacom, while sendi
Overall a good awards show that had a strong first half and then kind of lost its sizzle as time went on, as all the best shows were earlier in the presentation (I gave my opinions on most of them in an earlier post). I personally didn't like Springsteen at all, but that's because I personally don't like him or his music in the first place, so I really don't care about his life, so I just zoned out for his whole thing. And I forgot to mention Summer - which was pretty much jus

Do you know me? Why would you launch words like this at me because you don't agree with my opinions on theatre? You are the type of person that makes theatre a pretentious place where people are scared to join the community because of backlash from fVckweeds who think that they are gatekeepers.
