This just took my expectations for this show and skyrocketed them. Both these songs are gorgeous, the title number especially so. I am so, so excited to see this next month!!
Listening to all these sneak peaks makes me pumped for this show. Really hoping for a cast album so I can hear Cusack on repeat with that title song, it's just too good!

LOVE the title song. I am so excited to see this.
FYI, on the Telecharge app, they're selling center orchestra row A for previews, while the seating chart on the website has B as the first row.

I've got high hopes for ''Flying Over Sunset.''"Tom Kitt's rock score for "Almost Famous" is wonderful. I fell in love with the show in San Diego.As for "High Fidelity", it is one of the most underrated shows of the last 20 years. It was miscast and badly directed. Scott Miller, an amazing director and writer out of St. Louis wrote a great defense of the musical. http://www.newlinetheatre.com/hifichapter.html
I expect this show to be all over TDF. It would be lucky to get through it's scheduled run. No way this extends.
The creative team and cast scream Tony Winning Best Musical, but who knows. Anything can happen, but personally--this is my top contender....especially after hearing that title song. Feels like a big departure for Tom Kitt, which is very exciting.
It's a gorgeous title song - and I'm fascinated by how much LSD figures into the storyline. Very excited to hear the rest of the score, and hear about the staging (choreography?), and other performances. Grey Gardens vibes, too. Hope it's a hit!
