SoCalJoe - We attended the 7:00 show and her voice was spectacular...with and without musical backup. I agree with the review, it was a great show but I really was hoping she would sing Popular as an oncore.

Maryann Lopinto - David was a special person, not only a friend but he was constantly donating his time to many of the charities. If you asked him to do a benefit, he was first in line to sign up. What was not mentioned in the bio, is that he also had done some theatre. The Jewish Repertory Theatre he starred in a show clal SHEBA, and as part of of the first Broadway Theatre Tonight he performed LET IT RIDE. These are just two that Inknow of at the moment and that I saw. RIP and thank you. You will always be in my heart. Maryann

BWW TV Closing Night Flashback: Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson 2011/01/02
Posted: 1/2/2011
Gink - They do compare him to Hitler in the play and do not down play his part in the genocide of Native Americans at all. What the play does do is hit on the 'new' American's greed, ignorance, and lust for land and how they saw the land as theirs for the taking, as well as poking fun at how corrupt our government was even in the beginning. Yes, there are a lot of inappropriate laughs, but some sobering moments as well, (there is a very moving tabloid of The Trail of Tears toward the end) but you definately don't walk out of the theatre thinking AJ was a hero--more like a misguided product of the time who royally screwed over the native Americans.

Ed Kelty - I am impressed that your choices for 2010 are not limited to the major theaters in the DC area, but reach out to smaller groups -- including shows in the suburbs and childrens theater. That truly reflects the incredible range of theatrical experiences available in the metropolitan area.

janis - What in the world is wrong with Broadway? With “Spiderman,” Broadway is sacrificing the magic of live theater to the ‘special effects of Hollywood’ and the ‘spectacle’ of circus. In its pursuit of the weekly gross, theaters are risking the careers of their most talented performers and forfeiting their most valuable asset--the imagination of their audience. The move toward special effects and spectacle may be expedient in the short term, but long range, if Broadway does not leave the mesmerizing attraction of special effects to Hollywood and the fear of real life catastrophe to the Circus, theaters will follow the circus and increasingly, Hollywood, into obscurity. Theaters must stop insulting audiences by dumbing down their shows and allow us to exercise our imagination.

janis - Not having seen or yet read the script, I wonder if the writers tried to make a hero of what I, as a member of a tribe decimated by his crimes, consider a miserable imitation of a man? Certainly history proves Andrew Jackson was less than a man with whom one might enjoy sharing a beer. From the viewpoint of those whose history is unwritten, he more nearly resembles Hitler, taking property and marching a noble people deemed by him alone to "less than" to their death.

Olivia - Rob is amazing but the guy who Steinman was and still raves about a lot is Darren Holden from "Movin Out" He recorded demos of "Surfs Up" and "Is Nothing Sacred" and blew Jim away.

Wes Shepherd - This has been one of my favourite plays since the first time I saw the Zero Mostel movie as a kid. Seeing the play live last week was magic--something I couldn't have imagined being so much fun. "comedy tonight" is still buzzing through my head! As a freelance photog the one thing I would like would be able to get into a rehearsal or dress-rehearsal situation to shoot some personal photos of a troupe that I think perfectly brings the personality of the piece to the stage. wes shepherd wesshepherd@rogers.com
