Ever love a show so much, after it closed you think about it every now and then, and get sad you'll never get to see it again? I know it may make me seem weird, but for me that show is Gentlemens Guide.
I miss the Golden Age of our theatre. The real and only one.And that makes me sad.
You've been sad a long time A8. SAD! I really really miss Fun Home.
I second Fun Home. I really miss it.
Hedwig and the Deaf West Revival of Spring Awakening. Both shows meant a lot to me and helped me through some personal rough times. I miss them dearly.
The Drowsy Chaperone.Guilty pleasure answer: Newsies.
Hedwig. Makes me want to cry. Thank goodness for the movie.
They're polar opposites... but Hedwig and Honeymoon in Vegas. Sigh...
This will be me when Amelie closes.
The original Les Miserables. Rent. If Great Comet were in any other theater, I would have seen it already. But I know it will be sad to see the Imperial so drastically transformed. Alas, when I found out Oak was joining, that was enough to get me to try it. As much as I miss rent, it did need to close or have a Les Miz-style mass firing because it was so sloppy toward the end. But I prefer sloppy rent to no rent.
The recent SITPWG - seeing it 8x now doesn't seem like enough.And Legally Blonde and Xanadu because they were fun, breezy shows you could watch over and over again without much effort.
The Mark Rylance Twelfth Night.
I also miss Allegiance
Rylance's 'Twelfth Night' is available on DVD.I would love to see the original La Cage aux Folles again.
Passing Strange. I miss it and Daniel Breaker's performance so much every time I think about it that it's almost difficult for me to listen to the score! (Mary! I know)
In The Heights, Legally Blonde, Fun Home, Matilda, The Color Purple
No. One of live theatre's great beauties is its ephemeral quality - no performance will ever happen exactly the same way a second time. It's your special experience, that you can replay in your mind whenever you like.What I find sad is a show that's merely a machine, replicated perfectly night after night.
I miss falsettos.
^My thoughts exactly. What I cherish most is the memories I have of the experience. I've certainly been sad to see shows close....but not overly so....and never in a "forever" sort of way.
The London production of Love Never Dies.
Deaf West's Spring Awakening, Falsettos, Hedwig, American Psycho, Pippin, Significant Other
I don't know that I miss the show itself so much (with cast albums you can try to relive the experience) but I wish you could see a show for the first time again and fall in love with it all over. For me those shows would be Hedwig and Falsettos
