What do you think some of the april fool's jokes will be this year on BWW. Last year they had some pretty okay ones. The one I remember the most was the Tommy Can you Hear Me? A new reality show casting the lead in the upcoming revival of the musical.

So, what do you think some of them will be this year.

Another RENT extension.

Just think of the RENTheads who would go and try to rush and buy tickets for the "new" last show.

I was thinking that someone (if not BWW, one of it's users will create a post) saying that due to such high demand, Rent has decided not to close afterall.

My favorite BWW joke was the faux-Sondheim interview. I still have it hanging on the wall of my closet.

The faux Sondheim interview was fantastic.
"Some people can thrive and bloom living life in a living room, that's perfect for some people of one hundred and five. But I at least gotta try, when I think of all the sights that I gotta see, all the places I gotta play, all the things that I gotta be at"

It was about how he felt "I Feel Pretty" was his least favorite of all songs written and "Little Lamb" I believe. Something to that effect, right?

Patti Lupone to play Mimi in RENT.
He's a faker, and you've been taken in by his con. And in doing so, you are enabling him. He is doing more damage to aspergers than papa's words ever could. -Chane/Liverpool on me having asperger syndrome.

The thing I hate most about April 1st on BWW is the people who don't read all the way down, post an OMG thread, realize it's a joke and then post a new thread joking about Wicked closing and thinking they were the first person to think of it.
