I can't find the time length anywhere! I want to plan an evening show after the BE matinee, so I need to know how much time I'll have between the two.

Close this stuff down. And please take "13" with it.

Here is a news flash (in case anybody hasn't noticed):

------------Spoiler alert--------------
[username] Liza+Jesus=Patti does not like BE.
-----------end spoiler alert-----------

Just wanted to put that out there for you LJP, I'm not sure with the highjacking of every thread EVER created about BE, and your subtle hints (eg. "shut this..down") that everybody has noticed.

I personally don't give a flying [explative tastefully foregone] that you don't like it, care who SO peed in your Wheaties, or care that you whoreship L,J, OR P. (look up the word -- you'll see it applies)

Last time I checked, YOU were perfectly entitled to your opinion, and may choose to share (there are plenty of "I hate Billy" threads) -- but all your rants are doing is proving that you suffer from a Napoleonic complex somehow focussed on this (successful and entertaining) show.

You have my sympathy.

I am literally speechless at the fact that 13 and BILLY ELLIOT were just compared.

Anyway, it's roughly two hours and forty five minutes long.

TBD2 is my hero.
I want to apologize for some offensive messages posted on this board under my name. The night 0f 12-15-08 I did not have internet access, and someone had used my name to post something offensive. My avatar was also changed. I dont' know what else was posted, or if anyone recieved bad PMs, but I want to apologize for that. I've changed my password, and even though I was not the one posting these messages it still needed to be corrected.

General note: One thing that is good for is running time!
If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.
