I went to the first preview of "Caroline, or change" at the National Theatre last night. As a huge fan of Angels in America I am so disappointed, no I didn't expect it to be anything like the other play but I did expect some quality of writing.

Having said that I am very happy to have this as a keep sake to remind of the many times I saw the show there.

My guess is that the studio insisted on a "name" to lead the film in return for their investment..
but why not just ask Marc Shaiman here or on talkinbroadway. Marc seems to be very honest in his comments for example last week he set the record straight on ATC that neither Jim Broadbent nor Billy Chrystal had signed for the film and left there were just initial discussions.
