How lame! They're using a fake lobby! That is NOT the Gershwin!

Um, you do know they film Ugly Betty in LA, right?

No, it's the Pantages in Los Angeles, where Betty is filmed.

And it's the LA company. Is Ms. Hilty always that bouncy and breathy, or is it the TV? Either way, looks like she's lost a ton of weight.

Yep. She most definitely is.

Does it piss anyone else off that they were texting each other and talking incessantly? Showing that on national TV is basically telling anyone who ever goes to see a show if Ugly Betty can text, so can I!!

I was very annoyed by that as well.

I love Eden. Kind of upset they cut the song short so we couldn't hear her sing the whole thing.

so it was established that it ws filmed in the LA theatre for Wicked, my questions is I know its TV but why is Galinda's bubble down at the end of Act 1

Why would the bubble just move on it's own? Anyway, they ruined the climatic end of the first act re: 'Wicked' on Ugly Betty - Fake Lobby! I wanted to hear Eden belt out the end.

Eden sounded beautiful as usual, but she sounded like they kind of played with her voice.

OMG! I love how they just showed Betty coming out of the Wicked "stage door" and she was standing right in front of Juniors (which is on 45th!) and then showed her walking towards the Music Box Theatre... They showed have checked their geography a little better!!

And another 5 million gets added to the advance. Wicked just got 10 times the exposure that Legally Blonde got broadcasting the whole show.

This is a case where the rich get richer.

I was so confused about the bubble. Props don't move by themselves, and they are not weight activated or anything. So confusing!

I quoted it in the Off-Topic thread... I laughed uncontrollably during that section.

Ok, I will openly admit I was depressed that it wasn't Julia (I don't give two shakes about 'Wicked'). Then I got over it...

Not the best UB Episode, but it was cute. The kids trading the playbills was the best part of the show, IMO.

I'm sorry, I just can't get over the talking/texting in the theater thing. That is so unacceptable and the show completely reinforced that as being as an okay behavior.

I can't believe he sold his Ethel Merman Playbill!
