If anything this core plotline works better in this version."There's more going on with Bobby than pressure to get married.
I know its a show thats been around for quite some time, but for someone who is trying to go in relatively fresh and isn't familiar with the material, is there more a straight up comedy? Or a comedy with drama in it, or vice versa? I understand that may be hard to get into without spoilers, but if possible, I'm just curious what the tone of this show is. Seems at least deep on the surface from what Ive briefly read about characters on here, but the London Promo doesn't give me a great feel for the tone of this show at all. Just curious!
It's one of Sondheim's funniest shows, but yes with a dark undercurrent to it. He and Prince said they wanted the audience laughing non-stop throughout the show and then go home and not be able to sleep.

Got it, ill expect more of a sophisticated comedy here. Sounds perfect for the cast that seems to be coming together. Thanks for the help both of you!
Yes, but that is a core theme of the show and many if not most of the London production reviews noted, the ticking clock has even more relevance for a woman and childbirth.
TIck-Tock re-conceptualized to address the biological clock is a pretty brilliant reconfiguration of the material for a female lead. I'm expecting some things are going to work really well, others not. But classic Sondheim shows always took chances, so I'm all for a production taking new chances with its approach. I look forward to a new cast recording, and maybe filmed for home entertainment, as the Raul Esparza production was.
So... Simard as SarahMatt Doyle as JamieClaybourne Elder as AndyAny other rumors?
