From what I've gathered (I haven't seen either), the concert version showed a very different take on the characters. Also, I'd assume there weren't many props or sets, it being a concert and not a show. But I could be wrong. Anyone know more?

"That is from the `Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.` Here's another one. `In the room women come and go/Talking of Michael Angelo.' Does that suggest anything to you, sir?" "Yeah -- it suggests to me that the guy didn't know very much about women." "My sentiments exactly, sir. Nonetheless I admire T. S. Eliot very much."

The concert version is great - a stunnig performance from Patti LuPone and the woman who play Joanna - cant place her name right now and will will stupid when it coms to me. There is no set - jsut a series of ramps that the cast uses for playing space around the orchestra. There are costumes and minimal props - only what is required to make the show work. When throats are slit there is no sending the body through the floor - so that sometimes bugs people. What is important in this version IS THE SCORE. Thats the star - and this features that as the main attraction - is that of any help?
