was AMAZING!!! She was so great. Every single facial expression was adorable, her dancing was flawless, and her singing was right on. She was also the nicest person EVER at the stage door. Anyway, if you have the chance before March 26th, go see ROBIN GIVENS in CHICAGO!

That's so great to hear! When I first heard about it a couple of days before it was formally announced, I thought it was a perfect role for her, and I knew she would be great in it.

How were she and John O'Hurley together, like in We Both Reached For The Gun? Is it a good paring?

I bought my tixs for March 4th because of John O'Hurley. I am glad Givens is excellent. Can't wait.

Has Lillias White begun playing Mama yet, or is Debra Monk still doing the role?

Great to hear! I want to know how O'Hurley was?

I believe White begins as Mama Jan 31.

Okay, how did I miss that Lillias White was going to play Mama? SHe'll be great in the role.

Thanks for the review of Robin's performance, WickedBoy.
"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

I never would have thought she would be good. Maybe I will take another trip to see the show. It has been a while. Is the show still in good shape?

The last time I saw Chicago I was mostly unimpressed. The majority of the actors and actresses who 'made the show' for me are either now in the touring company or have moved on to other shows.
