What's really the point? You'll see her next week on Live From Lincoln Center.

DVR? VCR? TIVO? All those methods can easily record it for you. And lots of us "work".
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

i was gonna say! theres far more pointless threads on this board than this...its not much to ask how someone at the show thought it went and how Kelli was. and people wonder where the bitchy reputation comes from

Not everyone has access to DVR/TiVo or VCRs. Not to jump on you, but I'm just saying. I wish I could record this so that I could watch it, but unfortunately, I work nights as well and won't be able to see it unless some kind soul records it for me.

I saw the performance last night. I'm still in rapture (it was my first time seeing this production--this work of art).

Kelli was great--there might have been a couple moments here and there where a tiny bit of rust had to be knocked off, but barely. I was struck by not only how beautifully she sang the score, but by what a damn fine actress she is. She is entirely honest to the character and the part. There is no showboating. She just gives herself over to the text. Watching her get embarrassed while Emile de Becque sings praises to her--spot on! The acting was so layered and detailed--and yet entirely fit the space.

I am privileged to have seen her performance!

A lot of people also don't have DVR, VCRs or TiVos. Besides, she wanted to know about Kelli's first night back. TV isn't always the best representation of the performer.
