Considering that this was originally intended to be a limited engagement, I'd say that it's had a great run! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it with 4 different casts. It was just a terrific production, and I'm sad to see it go.
Darren Criss & Beau Bridges in HOW TO SUCCEED... Thoughts? Jan 5
2012, 03:16:38 PM
I have to agree that Criss's voice was very thin and not well-suited for the role. However, I liked his interpretation of Finch very much. I wouldn't use the word "slimy" to describe how he played it, as I found him more innocent and agreeable, particularly in the first act. I know that I'm in the minority here, but I enjoyed Bridges' performance acting-wise (singing-wise it was atrocious), although I wish he had a better grasp on remembering his lines, his ultimate downfall.

"Nick Jonas is a former child Broadway actor who hit it big with his brothers on Nickelodeon." If we want to get technical, it was Disney Channel. The Jonas Brothers are connected to the mouse.
How Is Kara DioGuardi Doing As Sep 9

It was a little too Christina Aguilera for my taste. Very oversung and too many pop star gestures. Not the worst rendition I've heard of the music, though.
Broadway tune suggestions for Broadway Revue Jun 23
2011, 12:32:21 PM
The songs would depend on the story you want to tell. Some production numbers could include "Broadway Baby", "Give My Regards to Broadway," or "Lullaby of Broadway" as general Broadway numbers. An interesting concept may be to choose a specific era or composer that you would like to work around. For example, I am doing a revue now that is made up of George M. Cohan songs.
Full Disclosure: Shows that have made you cry Mar 21
2011, 09:22:32 PM
I never cry at shows, (or movies or books or TV) but I came very close at In the Heights and Next to Normal, the first more than the latter. This is likely because there were moments in each show that were so relatable.
