I would have to say this is the least shocking thing I've read in days.

They are waiting for the California recall vote. If Mr. Schwarzenegger is not elected, the producers will offer him the Joel Grey role.

Hmmm....

I can understand the safety issue and wanting to run more checks.

I've heard a few rumours floating about with regards to techinical things like the monkies actually flying over the audience and the like. I don't know how true that is, but if it is the case, then yah I'd like the added security that some monkey isn't going to fall in my lap during the show. re: re: re: Wicked Postponed!

Yes, there a LOT of technicals things that were added in to the Broadway production and safety is always a number one issue. Those sets are not lightweight. They are built to last and put up witha lot of punishment and those special effects have to be VERY precise or someone can be seriously injured. I am much happier to know that the produces are concerned enough about teh well being of the cast that they would postpone to make sure it is all good unlike some other producers *cough* Fran and Barry.. who I am sure would have been more concerned about the buck and rushed them through.

I think it demonastrates good judgement on the part of the producers.

I have a feeling Wicked is going to have amazing effects! The monkeys flying over the audience makes great sense. I like how the gears are on the sides of the orch.
