A photo surfaced of a bunch of cameras (professional) in the theater--though it's probably for video clips from the press.

Interesting that "Dig Deep" and "Our Little Secret" were not performed.

An unforgettable night. Everyone blew their song(s) out of the park. Katherine and Megan both were sensational.

Started with an overture of some of the songs from the concert. A nice band, with about a dozen background singers in the back. Debra and Christian had some banter in the beginning, then started the show with Katherine and Megan singing Let Me Be Your Star. The "book" was quotes by Marilyn and people that knew her and were inbetween songs and mostly said by Debra, but a few others too. Donna and Ripley Sobo did At Your Feet. Katherine did a wonderful 20th Century Fox Mambo with full choreography, then did Never Give All the Heart. Megan then did a very sexy The National Pastime, into History is Made at Night with Will Chase. Then Ann Harada came out and rocked Never Met a Wolf Who Didn't Love to Howl. Christian did Dont Say Yes Until I Finish Talking. Will Chase did Lexington and 52nd Street and Megan closed the first act with a wonderful rendition of They Just Keep Moving the Line. Act 2 started with Jeremy Jordan singing Cut Print Moving On, then Katherine doing Public Relations. Megan did a beautiful Second Hand White Baby Grand. Leslie Odom Jr did (Let's Start) Tomorrow Tonight followed by Brian DArcy James doing The Right Regrets. Megan did Lets Be Bad then was joined by Donna to sing Hang the Moon, which was very touching. Katherine and Megan ended with Don't Forget Me. Everyone took their bow, then the curtain closed and came right back up for Big Finish. Mark and Scott came on stage, as did the choreographer Joshua. Mark and Scott said a few words then the night ended. 


My favorite moments were Let Me Be Your Star, Dont Forget Me, Never Met a Wolf, and Moving the Line. But all in all a truly spectacular night.

I don't even know where to begin.  The whole evening was just such a joy.  Everyone was really on their game.  I've never been a McPhee fan, but even I was pretty impressed with her tonight.  They had her doing pretty intense choreography all night, which she handled well.  It did give her a few breathing problems during 20th Century Fox Mambo, but I forgave her considering they were LITERALLY throwing her all over the stage.  Donna M was lovely.  Leslie Odom Jr was suave and delicious.  Jeremy Jordan sang Cut, Print, Moving On instead of the girls, and he pretty much nailed it.  Ann Harada singing I Never Met A Wolf... was hilarious.  Will Chase sounded great in his two duets and Lexington and 52nd Street. Christian Borle had an excellent command over Don't Say Yes... including a ton of choreography (all of the numbers were EXCELLENTLY staged, by the way).  Brian d'Arcy James sang The Right Regrets, which I found odd since nobody sang Our Little Secret.  I think he should have done that song instead.  But he still sounded great.


And then... there's Megan Hilty.  MEGAN. EFFING. HILTY.  Boy can she command a stage.  And her voice is stupid good.  I can't even begin to put into words how phenomenal she was.  She did her part of Let Me Be Your Star, National Pasttime (super raunchy), History is Made at Night, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Second Hand White Baby Grand, Let's Be Bad in THE red dress (which I had been told Katherine was doing), and half of Don't Forget Me.  But she also ended Act 1 with a rendition of They Just Keep Moving the Line the tore the roof off of the Minskoff.  This girl has talent.  Get her a show immediately.  Also, she looked absolutely stunning.  I lost count of how many costume changes she and Katherine had, but they both looked great.


My only disappointment was that neither Smash! nor Our Little Secret was performed (I didn't miss Dig Deep).  All in all, it was INCREDIBLE.  I almost didn't go, but I'm so glad I did.  Phenomenal.

They both changed for most of their numbers and every single dress was dazzling.

I know this may be a strange question, but...was the more "acrobatic" choreography kept in?

Specifically the throw at the end of "National Pastime".


And given the comments, am I right in assuming "National Pastime" was made more raunchy than it was in the show?

What about the important stuff?  Could anybody not do something because they were in tech?  Did they go to church?  Were Iowa's parents in the audience?  Cousin Debbie: Scarf or No Scarf?  "People on streets"? An In Memoriam slide for Kyle?

There was a lot of tossing people around.  The throw at the end of National Pasttime was there.  And Megan handled it beautifully.  Katherine felt like a yo-yo to me.  They were tossing her all over the place.  Megan also had a ton of lifts and tosses earlier in National Pasttime and Let's Be Bad.


 


And yes, National Pasttime was WAYYYYYYYY raunchier than it was on TV.  We're talking simulated BJs and tagteaming.

Well, if they can't get a full production of BOMBSHELL set for next season, I say bring Hilty back in a revival of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. She was sensational in the NYC encores production.

Well since Hilty's show was not picked up by ABC her schedule must be open.
