There was so much lacking in Rose and that's why she had to prove herself through her children. [interviewer]In ways that reminded you of your mom?[/interviewer]. Let's just say the role was very interesting for me. That one was the most interesting [I've ever played]" - Bernadette Peters (2018)

You know, you are going to have to start a new thread for those who have seen tonight's preview, but at least everyone knows there are 2 tickets left for Sunday

The dates that LuPone will be out have been up since tickets went on sale, I believe.
When I see the phrase "the ____ estate", I imagine a vast mansion in the country full of monocled men and high-collared women receiving letters about productions across the country and doing spit-takes at whatever they contain. -Kad

I suppose I glanced over them the first time.

P.s. intermission posts would be good!! (If anyone is doing any last-minute reading)

The curtain is a gazpacho recipe in Spanish.

Tech is in the balcony for God knows what reason. Maybe it's customary, but I've always seen tech in the rear orch.

I'm here now. A very rough first preview. Benanti is owning the show. Scott and Stokes-Mitchell seem lost. Rest of the cast is passable. LuPone is promising. MAJOR set and pacing issues. Score is the usual elevator music, save a few stellar songs. Book is fine, needs work. This can and hopefully will be a fabulous show but A LOT of work is needed. On to act 2! (PS best show curtain I've seen.)

ok, intermission. I'll leave the full blown reviews for others to post. I only got a little bit of info from my friend.

"Fun farce. Tech difficulties (to be expected). Stagehands pushing things on stage."

"Patti swings" .. I asked if this meant she's swinging on an actual swing but didnt get a reply.

"Story took a while to take off. All principals got entrance applause. Accents hard to understand"


That's all I got folks.

^ I'm not there and I could be totally wrong, but I swear I read somewhere that Lucia herself is actually wearing a blonde wig. So maybe the black wig is her "real" hair?

What are the sets like and what are the major issues with the set changes?
