Yes, but sometimes people have a third deeper layer thats the same as the first. Like pie. Dr. Horrible

It looks great. I can't wait to see what the finished product looks like all lit up.

I am actually excited to see the show, but that marquee looks really dull. I agree with Yank- it's not going to draw anyone in.

Ug-ly.

You guys seriously think it looks terrific?
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

Well, compared to the ENTIRE poster, I would say the bits and pieces are an improvement.
PLEASE! Do not post anything negative or dramatic! DidYouReallyHearMe has LOST the ability to ignore such posts and he will comment! Please, help him.

It does not. It looks dated and depressing.

If you walk by the Walter Kerr theatre, and see a person in a red shirt, you would be looking at the person in the red shirt and not this marquee. White background? Seriously?

What other shows had white background posters?

It's so dull and blah. I don't think it'll be helpful in drawing people to see the show.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

That is not terrific. It is very boring and does not make me want to see the show.

Horrible logo. It is unoriginal, uninspired, boring and DULL and if that is the first thing from the show tourist sees, they'll flee the theatre.

The logo is the first thing that sells a show.

Bad, bad marketing choice to go with this artwork. Just makes the show look dull, and uninteresting.

Cyrano had better artwork.

Cyrano is hundreds of years old.

This marquee looks hundreds of years old.

I'm still excited to see it, but man, they are going to have a great deal of difficulty attracting tourists.
