St. Ann's Oklahoma. It's the first time I ever saw any production of the show and I should have watched the movie first or even the filmed national theatre production with Hugh Jackman first --- and then watched St. Ann's production to truly appreciate it more.

Tuck Everlasting or Magic/Bird. Both I was glad to have not paid too much money for.

3 London shows:  Charlie & Chocolate Factory, The Commitments, and We Will Rock You

Broadway:  We don't get there as often, so pretty selective in what we see.  No regrets come to mind.

San Francisco:  Tours:  Da; Sit-Downs: Phantom of the Opera; Local Companies:  The Tale of Lear at Berkeley Rep

Los Angeles:  PreBroadway Tryouts:  Odyssey; The Baker's Wife

St. Louis:  tour - Big River

I saw Deuce several years ago with Angela Lansbury and Marian Seldes. I really only went because I thought it might be the last time we got to see our beloved Angela on the stage. Of course, she's been back a couple of times since and I wish I hadn't sat through that drivel just to see her.

Jekyll and Hyde.  After seeing the pre-Broadway productions, what I witnessed on Broadway was a tragedy.

The Visit 

A Catered Affair

 

I've seen a lot of junk with some entertainment value to keep me awake but nothing could save these, not even Chita Rivera.

Although the worst I ever saw was THE BLONDE IN THE THUNDERBIRD, I wouldn't trade the memory of seeing it for the world!  In fact, I would go back to see it again --- just to make sure my eyes (and ears) weren't lying!
