"In theater, the process of it is the experience. Everyone goes through the process, and everyone has the experience together. It doesn't last - only in people's memories and in their hearts. That's the beauty and sadness of it. But that's life - beauty and the sadness. And that is why theater is life." - Sherie Rene Scott

In my understanding, "Girl In 14G" was NOT written for Millie. The composers for the show, Jeanine Tesori and Dick Scalan, wrote it just for Kristin. Right?

I love "Why We Like Spelling," It's only like three minutes long, did that really make it have to be separated? Why don't they just kick off the guest spellers faster?

Oh, I can't get enough of Too Much for One Heart from Miss Saigon. Lea Salonga's performance on the Broadway concert DVD is just amazing.

Marry Me a Little and Happily Ever After, Company.
I love Happily Ever After, much more then Being Alive, I agree with Sondhiem, Being Alive is too much of a cop out.

TENTERFIELD SADDLER was replaced with ONCE BEFORE I GO in THE BOY FROM OZ on Broadway. But the producers were wise enough to include it as a bonus track in the cast recording.

The song was restored in the recent arena version in Australia. But happily, Hugh sings both songs before and after I GO TO RIO! Each one is very emotional. Tenterfield Saddler reflects on Peter Allen's life while Once Before I Go is fast developing as Hugh's signature song.

Certainly RIGHT ON TIME from The Wedding Singer. Although, SOMEDAY has really grown on me. I think I prefer the SOMEDAY reprise over the RIGHT ON TIME reprise, because I feel SOMEDAY works better as a slower song and RIGHT ON TIME as an upbeat number. Besides the staging/story worked much better with RIGHT ON TIME as Julia's first number. I'm stil hoping (doubtful) there will be some redevelopment for the expected 2007 tour.

I love "I Won't Mind." What show is it from? I'm not at home so I can't look at my CD book and it's going to drive me nuts.

"Marry Me a Little," definitely. I absolutely love that song.

I've always wanted to hear "Happily Ever After" since I heard of it. Is it available on a recording somewhere?

"Right on Time" from WEDDING SINGER

i really wish it wasnt replaced by "Someday"...

I know. That was the most genuinely 80s sounding song of the show. It was great.

I had NO idea that "14 G" was from Millie originally!!!! Wowww

But I much prefer "Someday" to "Right on Time". I didn't like either at first but Someday has really grown on me. "Right on Time" just doesn't appeal at all to me for some reason... But I like Robbie's little part of "Right on Time"
