It may be on their CBS NEWS app later in the evening, the first story is already loaded on there: under the Menu scroll down to SHOWS and select 60 Minutes.

They were very flippant about "we are not going to replace him." 

If I had any interest in seeing this, I lost it there.

Had the opposite effect on me, I now want to see a show I previously had zero desire to see. It’s a shame all my NYC trips are canceled for the foreseeable future.

Thanks for the tip is right!

You saved me a chunk of change that will go towards a better seat for COMPANY.

Not sure that did the show any favors with the exception of Powell's glistening, chiseled chest.

Two non-musical theater geniuses, eh?

That was a good segment. Good for them for touching on the controversies, from bringing in Broadway dance consultants (Trujiilo) to the Amar protests. Keersmaeker was clearly not happy about the dance consultants.

For anyone who missed it it’s now loaded onto their CBS News apps.
I’m rewatching it via their Roku TV app.

Not that they needed the boost in ticket sales, but Telecharge had a queue and crashed temporarily after it aired.

I hope they have a similar story on another news show when Spielberg's film comes out.

Here's the full Sondheim article, including a clip of him discussing his West Side Story lyrics and what embarrasses him.

Respect for Ivo went to zero when they showed his reaction during the tech of the bedroom scene.  That is not a leader.

I’m sure this will have a positive effect on the show and sales, but nothing will compare to the 60 Minutes segment on TKAM that skyrocketed that show into orbit in 2018.

I'm curious about a few things, but I'll keep it to two. First, on a scale of 1 to 10, how much respect did you have this morning when you woke up? Second, were you there? (I am guessing not so perhaps we should wait until someone who was tells us if they were lead or not.)

Looks interesting for sure but I fear the cast will be weak and overextended during this run. Many newbies in what looks like a grueling show. Isaac doesn’t sound very strong vocally. I’d like the show sung well. The re-interpretation looks intriguing but I’d also like it sung well and danced well. I’m sure I’ll see it, but as others have said I think this show will be understudy heavy.

Having seen it twice over the course of a two-month period, it *is* sung and danced beautifully. Especially Isaac Powell. And these dancers may be newbies to the Broadway world, but incapable of grueling choreography they are not.

The video and the hidden set are WTF?  I don't have a problem with replacing the original choreography, but why replace it with modern dance?
