scary, my friend, you'll LOVE IT!

Re: Theater Talk - STEW (and) Heidi sure do know how to carry themselves. Realy, really GREAT interview! I mean, I knew everything they made mention of already, but y'know, it was a treat just to ... hear it from the horse's mouth.

Also, as an aside, that fella who was on to talk about THE 39 STEPS has gotten me all the more excited for the show - when I FINALLY get to see it at the Cort - on June 19! re: The offical Passing Strange Love Thread................


Share the Warmth,
Spread the Buzz,
Find the REAL!

Best,
- Mike

Scary, we DO hope you'll love it like we do, however nothing is 100% sure thing...
Just let it sweep over you, and let loose when you feel like it!
Underneath the hard rockin' "frame" lies a sweet story of mother and son, the real and the facades.
And it's just damn funny and sarcastic.

I did standing room at PS last night. What a crowd last night.

I stood out by the stage door after the show, which I don't do very often. There were only a couple of us out there. The cast + crew were really really great. All of them were willing to talk to the fans, with the exception of Eisa Davis, who looked like she had somewhere to be. Heidi was awesome to talk to. It took a while for Stew to come out. He apologized for taking so long because he wasn't used to having fans wait for him at the stage door. It was really great to meet him.

Something I noticed, the entire cast were all really stylish. I don't know if it was because it was a Saturday night, but they were all workin it.

Broadwaybox is netting me a first row seat. Is it gonna be too close? I've heard its really loud. Front row would be great, but I want to leave with my eardrums intact.

I sat front row. It was AWESOME. It's definetly an expierence to sit first row. I thought it was going to be louder than it was, from all the hype about it here, but I go to rock concerts frequently so I'm used to it being that loud. Front row balcony is probably the best place to see the show from, but front row orchestra is second best. You really get the intimacy which I love. I'd say GO FOR IT

Hey Curious, thanks for the PM. Glad you were there to enjoy, once again. Yes, the cast and crew are really the sweetest! They even collect for BC/EFA themselves! NIce. Once again, I reiterate the fact that many "seniors" attend the show, maybe not knowing too much about it, and end up loving it the most. The audience mix of young, old, tween, oldie hippie types, geeks, european, american, gay, straight, etc. makes the show ever more interesting to indulge in...

For those who've seen PS, a TONY Q:

If PS does a musical number on the Tony's what no. do you think it should be, purely for a marketing strategy:

The "We just had Sex" number (sex sells!)
The "Arlington Hill" number? might not seem
right, out of context
"Welcome to Amsterdam" MY vote, if Stew is
allowed to REALLY
rock out!
"Keys" ?
"The Black One" Good choice ?, cause
it's satiric, show
bizzy, Kander & Ebb
sounding.

I say: AMSTERDAM

or Keys, one of the two.

A live CD would be amazing, I believe someone was talking about that earlier. The show really needs to be expierenced live because it's such an event: all the energy and the pumping music etc etc

ps: great to see Passing Strange's grosses are up! I'm rootin' for ya!

Caroline, I agree, Stew should be allowed to rock it (AMSTERDAM) INTO the first couple of rows of the TONY'S. It's a freaking great number, which hopefully could translate well on TV.

I think it should be some sort of combination of AMSTERDAM, and KEYS.

Like, maybe just have the end part of KEYS, where he's saying the whole, "IS IT ALRIGHT" part.

You have to sell the whole rocking aspect of the show.

Saw the show Saturday night and really enjoyed it, so much energy the cast really seemed to be having a blast up there. I met a few at the stage door and they were all very gracious and kind. Definitely a show I would see again. As for a Tony song, I would say "Keys,""Amsterdam," or a Medley

Ditto, BenKaye. It just has to end with KEYS. It's going to be fantastic!

I had the chance of seeing it last Saturday. I posted this in another thread, but I thought I'd copy it in here as well:

This is, by far, the best show I've seen in a long time. I found funny that I didn't see any of the "problems" some people talk about. It was accesible, hilarious, had a great story, it was easy to digest, and I thought it could have been a lot louder. In fact, it was pretty cute and sweet. Never cried so much after a show, I was really choking.
Stew is a true star, and the performers have so much energy - the way they move from one character to the other is truly amazing.
I hope it gets the reconginition it deserves, it is simply mind blowing.

Oh I plan to see it soon. Its great to see that its boxoffice record is catching up and its no longer netting in 40% of its tickets sold.

The first time I got $25 seats ($26.50 with fees), was front row left orchestra. The second time was SRO, so I think it's whatever the theatre has available, which is great. None of that partial view lottery rear mezz crap.
