Yes, I finally have something to post about! I'm seeing the show November 10th, I'm super excited to see this show, especially after seeing Stephanie's performance in Falsettos.

What kind of career does someone have to play both Liza and Cher on Broadway? Insane.

I miss the days when the first person to actually see the first preview would post a thread about it, so one didnít have to sift trough several pages to actually read first preview thoughts.

But everyone seems content with the same person (who doesnít even attend first previews) doing it several days in advance. Super.

As long as someone has opened Pandora's box of complaining about preview thread practices...

I've always wondered: why do we always have "preview" threads when we could just have a "general discussion" thread for every show? Then when people want to continue discussing the show after opening night, they don't have to choose between using a preview-specific thread, or starting their own thread.

Not really a battle, just a thought that I know Iím not alone in.. Most seem content with one person dominating the board, so it is what it is at this point.

Good thing it does not matter and has no effect on anyoneís actual lives or careers and no one gets hurt in the process. Who cares who starts what threads?

Anyways - do we have an idea about rush and/or lottery yet?
I am big. Itís the REVIVALS that got small.

Sorry Jordan, you'd be on the losing end of that bet. I have the receipts.

...anyway, the show's digital lottery was just announced, GiantsInTheSky2!

They have an invited dress tonight, so I imagine we'll hear something.

Though I'm attending Opening Night and intended as that being the day I see the show I'm now planning on seeing it next week.  My excitement for its Broadway arrival started when a few weeks ago I happened to be crossing W. 52nd Street as the show was loading in so the sidewalk was crowded with lightning boxes/cases/trunks and the huge LED panels were spread out on the street in front of the Neil Simon Theatre.  The backstage door was wide open so you could see the crew building the lighting rigs on stage, etc.   You could feel a certain electricity in the air.  I genuinely mean that.

Very anxious to hear your report, BrodyFosse.  I'll be there opening night, as well.  Can't wait to see the changes from the Chicago run!

Seeing it on Tuesday, after seeing it 5x in Chicago.   My wishlist: that they expand Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves;  that they keep Lucille Ball; that they re-focused Dark Lady.   Finally, more Mackie Costumes - this # should get a standing O every night.
