I'm positive that there is no SRO, but not sure about student rush...I don't think that there is student rush, but I'm not completely sure.

Like I always say, why say a show is gawd awful if you have not even seen it yourself!?

ok, yes- that is a good point.

but when at least 6 of my friends have told me its bad, I really dont want to drop money on something when I could go see something I REALLY want to see. Now, if it were the real "FAME", I'd go see it.

Hmmm...your six friends could have different opinions...I do not care if you dislike the show AFTER you see it, but why not get the cheapest seats available...take binoculars...and check it out for yourself? re: re: re: re: re: Fame on 42nd Street

honestly, this is like the G rated fame. Fame was not meant to be rated G. I will not be dropping money to see a Barney production of Fame.

How can you truly appreciate the good shows without seeing the bad? re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: re: Fame on 42nd Street Hahah just a thought. I think seeing a bad show every once in a while would keep my perspective fresh. On the other hand, you can see a bad show for much cheaper,

I changed my mind. I'm not just going to see good shows. I will probably goo see a bad one by mistake so I shouldn't promise I'm only seeing good ones. Like you said, it's all about perspective. However, I usually know if a show is good by word of mouth, and I don't mean critics. i don't belive in critics. Especially Ben Brantley.

I have to say, I was in the FAME and I thought it was the worst show ever!! It is just a generic eighties musical that was based on something good and they just turned it bad.... very bad. But, I do have to say, I like a few of the songs.
