I saw one of their shows, hated it, and don't really have a desire to buy a package from them...

2009, 01:28:07 PM It took me awhile to warm up to her, and I have to say she was my least favorite....but I didn't DISLIKE her. She just seemed "too big" for the rest of the acting....if that makes any sense.
I totally agree with this. I saw it yesterday, and at first, she seemed almost inexperienced with stage acting to me, but halfway through the first act, she suddenly improved and I started to like her.
Definitely loved the show, though, and I will go back and see it again.

A friend of mine who won lotto told me that Adam, Idina and Taye were not there. The mezzanine had a section for past cast members, and there was constant sobbing from Contact on.

I was at the matinee today. It was my first time ever seeing Anthony and Adam perform live. I've never been a big fan of Adam's voice (from listening to cast recordings and seeing the movie), but he totally changed my opinion today. His voice seems to have changed a bit for the better--it's just so strong and solid. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Anthony, in my opinion (and I'm sure mostly everyone else's!) is the perfect Mark. I had seen the show 20+ times before, but had only

I listened to the cast recording before I saw the show and loved it. When I went to the show, I was very disappointed. It's definitely not the kind of show everyone will like and understandably so--I'm sure some people would even consider the show to be bordering on offensive.
While I find the cast to be incredibly talented (I do agree that John Gallagher Jr. deserved the Tony), and the music great to listen to, it really wouldn't bother me if I never saw the show again.

An older couple sitting behind me at the matinee of Les Mis after the show...
The Wife: That one who played Fantine, she must've had a cold. Me: No, she always sounds like that. Husband: Geez, what were they thinking? She wasn't even pretty!

He was even more annoying on So You Think You Can Dance...as soon as I saw him on the previews last night, I knew it was going to be the same thing again. He's clearly just trying to get on tv...

I bought tickets one day when I was looking to see something different, thinking I probably wouldn't like it that much--I ended up loving it. It's something original and different, which, to me, is far more interesting than the usual Disney/musicals made from movies/revivals shows that seem to be flooding Broadway now.

Personally, I prefer where it is now...moves quick, and you don't have to deal with any weather issues.

The show was very high energy, crowd was what was to be expected--some teenagers dressed in costume, loud audience response with applause for everyone as they came onstage. I did find it a bit obnoxious that people were yelling out some of the lines and singing along, though.
Stephen Lynch gave a nice speech at the end, all the understudies and Constantine came onstage with the rest of the cast for the curtain call. Stage door surprisingly was not as insane as I expected. Crowded, ye

I usually go to a show every weekend, but as much as there are a few shows I want to see right now, I'm probably going to hold off this weekend because I have a cold with a really bad bronchial cough...I definitely don't want to make a scene in the theatre, and I don't want to get anyone around me sick either.
