Sharon - Thanks for posting this wonderful piece as a tribute to this much-loved lady who most people never knew! She was never very good at tooting her own horn, and as you said, she touched so many countless people's lives, including mine. I was so honored to be a small part of her one woman show, a musical memoir "I'm Still Here" she performed at Theater West in the early 70's. I look forward to seeing the movie. God bless you, Betty, your spirit will live on in the hearts of those of us lucky enough to have known you, or seen you perform.

Max Raabe and the Palast Orchester Return to Carnegie Hall 3/4 2010/01/26
Posted: 2/14/2011
shirley creazzo - There is surely something magical about the Palast Orchestra. It may be because the magnetic Max Raabe has surrounded himself with the most amenable of peformers. Every member of the talented band has an amenable and enchanting persona, and the director of the resulting DVD, Michael Ballhaus, has a delightful personality to match. What superb music is the result! The ensuing DVD is worth wathing over and over, so the subtle nuance by the memners of the orchestra are not missed. But this is no mere entertainment. This orchestra is providing high-tone, and seriously high-quality, music. Simply not to be missed.

Mick - Continued- Afterall, the tickets had professional price tags attached. The audience should have been able to expect professional management of the show. These so called preview tickets were not discounted - perhaps that would have been a good idea. You should get what you pay for. I wouldn't dissuade anyone from attending the show. It was very good and will improve. It is the management/preparation of the show that ignites my complaint and particularly the lack of respect for the early audiences.

Mick - To Sylvia Not a single complaint???? Who were you talking to? The show was good, thanks to the cast but the preparation was lacking and and this very tentative situation should never have occurred. Accidents can happen but they should be prepared at all times to cater for these situations. It really was a fluke that Saturday's matinee was a success. Not only did they need to hurriedly prepare the understudy but they also warned the audience of possible technical difficulties. They were expecting problems and warned the audience of possible breaks in the show. It was a very off putting introduction to something many audience members had waited for and looked forward to for many months. As luck had it, all went smoothly and there may not have been complaints about the show itself but there were most certainly complaints about the lack of being fully prepared for any situation, be it cast, technical or otherwise. Unprofessional, to say the least - things could have so easily gone the other way on Saturday and we may have found ourselves equally as disappointed as the Friday evening

Kim - Larraine - I FULLY AGREE!!!!! We attended Saturday's matinee and I was extremely disappointed that Anthony Warlow would not be performing. However, the show did go on and Anton Berezin did do amazingly well under the circumstances. We can only be thankful that we did not purchase tickets for the Friday night performance. Having said that, it did anger me when we were informed that we were attending a preview show and that technical problems could result in the show be stopped. When purchasing the tickets there was no mention of preview or pre-show. If this is the case it should be made clear during the purchase of tickets and the tickets should be sold at a reduced price. Why should we pay the same price for a 2nd rate showing! I purchased the best tickets as a gift and we also travelled quite some distance, each from different locations. This took a lot of organising, planning and expense. continued.........

mbh - Pheadra is a racist. If Kim said what Pheadra said "about the can food" (which is such a joke!!!!) she would be off the show due to negative media attention. but such a big deal is made about Kim and Sweetie's relationship. Of course that's about black and white. Such a double standard. ANDY is the best though.

Posted: 2/13/2011
Kim - continued........... There are some smart remarks posted here about experienced theatre goers knowing that there are many preview performances before opening night but that does not excuse the fact that we are being sold "shoddy goods" AT FULL PRICE and that this should be disclosed before the purchase of tickets is finalised. Circumstances prevented us from being able to attend a performance later in the season but we may have preferred not to attend at all if we had realised that we were attending a 'REHEARSAL"! The fact is that the show was not fully prepared to open. Technical problems had not been fully ironed out nor were understudies prepared to step in if necessary. Whatever happened to "THE SHOW MUST GO ON"? The first show should be just as prepared as the last show as long as the audience is paying full price. I fully agree that Friday evening's audience are well within their rights to open a class action to recover all expenses incurred. You were certainly duped!! Telling you that "I will be fine for opening night" was a slap in the face and would have been better left unsaid.

megoblok - From a Los Angeles Times article in July last year....whats this "World Premiere" in Sydney! Wish some people were honest with the Public. "In 2006, the La Jolla Playhouse presented a production of "Zhivago," a new stage musical based on the 1957 Boris Pasternak novel about romance and politics set during the Russian Revolution. Now the musical has resurfaced in -- of all places -- Australia. Des McAnuff, the Tony-winning director and former artistic director of La Jolla Playhouse, will direct the Australian production, which is set to begin in February in Sydney. "Doctor Zhivago" -- which is being billed as a "world premiere" despite its previous Southern California engagement -- features a score by Lucy Simon and and a book by Michael Weller. The lyrics are by Michael Korie and Amy Powers."

Alick - The issue here is not a Review by the audience who saw the show - no doubt it was good and will continue to improve, The issue here is the NO SHOW on 11/2 and the audience from near and far being left disappointed not by an unforseen injury to a leg (not voice) but the unprofessional manner in which this fiasco was handled. Why did the excellent understudy know his lines the next day and not the night before???? Very suspicious and very poorly handled leaving the audience on 11/2 in the lurch with no offer of any compensation ( only a refund or rebooking,) For only a half hour preview performanse before the curtain fall and an abrupt goodnight only, one would have thought at least a drink voucher for the Premiere performance SHOWBIZ ticket holders should have been possible to redeem - if not free drinks for all. A very disappointing and poor show that could have been much better handled. A NO SHOW for the Reporter from New York for his Magazine - what can one say ?

Ray - Yes, you most certainly should be seeking compensation. John Frost didn't make you that offer because he only cares about "opening night". And we thought we were attending the opening night........ ha ha, the joke's on us! Those of us attending the early shows were only ever meant to be the guinea pigs - full paying Guinea pigs, without even realising it! Did you enquire as to why the understudy wasn't fully rehearsed and ready to go on with the show? They continued to sell programs and souvenirs to take further advantage of their captive audience. Perhaps audience is the incorrect term......................there was no show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Carol - Yes JUDE - No one is disputing that the show is less than excellent in all respects. Anton and the rest of the cast have pulled it together and it is sure to have a successful run BUT there most certainly has been a misrepresentation of tickets. We also attended the Saturday matinee and were shocked to hear that we were actually attending a preview. Why not be honest and label the tickets as "full dress rehearsal" and charge a lower price? All they seem to be concerned with is whether Anthony will be fit for Saturday 19th and the so called "premier" and too bad about what's happening prior to that except that Anthony is missing out on these dress rehearsals ("previews") to fine tune his performance for the 19th. Tickets have been sold by many different ticket vendors such as Ticketmaster, Showbiz etc, etc and it seems that there's been a misrepresentation across the board. I doubt that these vendors were even aware of the preview status - not the sales staff anyway. continued.............

Barry Farmer - I went Friday with my partner after catching a flight from Adelaide and staying overnight at a city hotel. Added I use a wheelchair for my mobility. When leaving the theatre I talked to John Frost and felt sorry for him. Wow, how can the show run in its entirety 15 hours later. He knew we were from Adelaide as he commented he was an Adelaide person as well. Why did he say ring on Monday and get a refund or swap to another show and not comment is was only Friday nights performance that was cancelled as it would have been nice to at least ask if disability seats were available on Saturday.. We feel cheated as it would have been responsible of John to say was only this performance was cancelled. Why did they not say anything until everyone was in the theatre after purchasing programs and show souvenirs. Yes, I will be chasing compensation as this was our only reason for going to Sydney. .

Carol - continued ......... To LAUREN - I have attended many productions over the years but not usually at the beginning of a show's run, so I've never come across this issue. It is still MISREPRESENTATION even though we might not all be as "theatrically aware" as you!! Perhaps you received a discounted ticket somehow - why would anyone pay full price if they'd been aware of the facts?? At the Saturday matinee we were lucky enough to see the whole show but it really was touch and go at the beginning!!! We were informed that there could be breaks during the show because of technical problems.......WHY??? Why weren't they prepared? It's a shame about Anthony, but as we were informed it is live theatre and anything can happen. Therefore, why wasn't the understudy ready to step in on Friday evening? This is what I can't understand. To just cancel the show is unbelievable!!!!! For those like Lauren who are so aware of theatrical protocol, don't they still say, "the show must go on"? continued .............

Carol - continued......... To LINDSAY - You make a couple of points there too. I have also heard about Anthony's track record of no shows and a publicity stunt is not a far stretched concept either. For those attending before 19th, expect a wonderful show. Anton is brilliant. The costumes and stage settings are superb.

I went to Saturdays matinee and was blown away - simply stunned by the incredible performance and stage props etc. Yep totally devasted that I didn't get to see Anthony - I came from Canberra. I was disappointed we were told before hand that this was preview because my the price of my ticket does not indicate any preview. Yes I think a misrepresentation of tickets being sold for shows. Fortunately a superb show but I simply cannot afford to book again to see Anthony perform. I have had my tickets since July 2010.

Susan - Lindsay how very negative of you. Anthony is one of the most professional stars around and would never even dream of doing something such as this " stunt" as you put it. Again if someone is injured as badly as Anthony, you would not want them to go on. This would plainly be ridiculous. You seemed to have conveniently forgotten that Anthony sang the night before for a charity show for Dr Chris O'Brien (as the final dress rehearsal) and by all accounts of those whom attended it was a fabulous night.

Andy - We went last week and thoroughly enjoyed the even. Great performance by Susan Traherne but he quality of the supporting cast and the directing are what made the evening so memorable. Not to be missed.

Lindsay - Poor Anton! And as to Warlow- a dud, just look at all his no shows in Phantom. It's not as if he is a Nancye Hayes or a Reg Livermore, always on UNLESS they really have a broken leg. Just get over it folks, the Frost /Wharlow combo is dud combo! With a track record that goes back for years. And just maybe this all might be another of Frost's publicity stunts- just don't overlook that possibility.

fflagg - Come on! Take off the rose-colored glasses. BS looks awful in an ill-fitting black dress, poor makeup, and ridiculous hair. How ironic that her gay son seems to care as little as she does about her look and her career. :) "He is not the gay son I would have wanted her to have."

Susan - I have to admit the marketing of the tickets has been poor as I bought tickets for the 'premiere' as a gift to friends and one for my mother who has known Anthony Warlow since his days in the Arcadians in Wollongong. I suspect dates for the red carpet premiere have been changed merely due to overseas producers (whom have the last say with this show going to Broadway) being delayed. I was there on Friday night with friends and family and was shocked to hear Anthony was injured. Like all of those seated. Continued...

Susan - After John Frost and Des McAnuff explained the situation to the audience, Anthony hobbled onto stage obviously in pain and on one crutch to state his disappointment in what happened. He is human after all! Some yelled 'show us your leg' others 'sing a song' to which Anthony with his good humour sang I'll be seeing you. And you know what shit happens sometimes especially when dealing with anything that is live. Thank goodness no animals or children were involved! So we had a preview of the preview. We enjoyed what was shown. Lucy Maunder is a star, Anton well done under extremely stressful circumstances. To the cast you sound great keep it up. The set design and costumes are superb. We enjoyed the bite and will be back for the meal. The reports I hear from those who attended Saturday night's performance and flew up from Melbourne were impressed and said they would see it again. To Anthony you know 'break a leg' is not meant to be taken literally! Please get well soon and we cannot wait to hear your dulcet tones once again caressing the stalls.

John - Not everyone lives in Sydney!! The Sydney hotels reap the benefits of the thousands of annual visitors attending live theatre in the city. Many of Friday evening's audience were such visitors to Sydney who planned their trip just to see Dr Zhivago. How do you think it feels to travel a long distance, plan transport and accommodation and organise things at home only to be confronted with the cancellation of such a show AND not because the lead performer had an injury BUT because there was no understudy who could take his place? Particularly for those of us who are not so young, it was more than alarming to be informed of the situation after taking our seat to watch the performance. It's not so easy for us to turn around and do this all over again, not to mention the expense! If we don't return to see the show then we have wasted our time and money in our attempt to visit the first show. It's not just another trip into the city for us. Why should we be stuck with this loss? Isn't it the responsibility of the producer? We were impressed with the short preview and would love to see the show but what are we to do now?

Cathy - Continued...... And, they mustn't have had a lot of confidence in their show for the producer and director to stand before the audience on Saturday afternoon and state that technical problems may cause breaks during the show. This had nothing to do with Anthony's accident. It was just more evidence that the show wasn't fully prepared to go ahead and it was very dampening to many of those attending that performance. I give full credit to the cast and crew for the success of the show that did follow. Anton was fantastic but he should never have been put into such a position. He had to pull a rabbit out of a hat! You wouldn't have believed that he wasn't prepared the night before which leads me to suspect that the real reason for the cancelled performance on Friday was more because of technical problems than because of the lack of a leading performer. Like Larraine, I too smell a rat. None of this should deter anyone from seeing the show. It is evident that the show is now in full swing but the Friday evening ticket holders deserve more than they have been offered to make up for their loss.

Kim - Anton was excellent from the start (Saturday matinee). I never meant to give the impression that he wasn't. But those who attended on Friday evening did not have the opportunity to see more than half an hour of the show because SUPPOSEDLY Anton had not fully rehearsed and did not know his lines etc. It's evident that Anton is nothing but a professional. If this was the true reason for the cancelled performance then it had to be a production fault. The producers have the responsibility to offer a fully functional show to each and every ticket holder and to have a fully rehearsed understudy ready to perform at the drop of a hat. My God!!!! It was the lead role!!!! What could they have been thinking! They must have been running well behind schedule in the production of the show to not allow time for the understudy to rehearse.

pat thompson - I saw the show at Sunday's matinee and was MOST disappointed to hear of Anthony Warlow's non-appearance - I only booked because he was in it. However, Anton Berezin was excellent - he may have been 'iffy' earlier but not today - WELL DONE! get better soon Anthony Warlow, I'd love to see you and Anton on stage together - it would be sensational!

Amanda - I attended the Sunday matinee today (13/2) and thoroughly enjoyed it. As a long-time fan of Anthony Warlow's, since his early days with the Australian opera, I shared the disappointment of the majority of the audience when it was announced that Anthony could not perform. That said, Anton Berezin did a brilliant job as understudy. His voice has the "sound", if not the strength/power, of Anthony Warlow's and if I had not had the expectation of hearing Anthony's magnificant voice, I would not have been disappointed at all. There were no technical hitches that I noticed, and the voices of the rest of the cast, especially Lucy Maunder as Lara and Taneel Van Zyl as Tonia, were fantastic. The costumes and sets were impressive too. Regarding the "previews" - while I have been to many musicals over the years, I don't usually buy tickets at the beginning of a show's run, so I've never come across this issue. Like some others, I was surprised that the early shows are considered "previews", especially with such a short run in Sydney. When purchasing the tickets there was no distinction made and I was not aware until a couple of days ago today that the "opening night" is not for another week! I was under the impression that, extremely unfortunate injuries and/or illnesses aside, the show we were to see was going to be on par with a show put on in, say, 3 weeks' time. If there is a reasonable chance technical or other issues, then I don't think it reasonable to charge full ticket price. To sum up - in spite of Anthony Warlow's absence, I (and the two people I attended the show with) enjoyed the show very much; it's just surprising and a little disappointing that the "previews" weren't identified and priced accordingly.

Cathy - Most definitely unprofessional. You deserve full compensation for all your expenses. Don't allow them to get away with this. Their insurance company would surely agree to their incompetence and they would be lucky to be covered if a class action was to be taken against them. No prepared understudy!!!!!!! Would this have occurred in London or New York? The show is expected to gain international success but how can an audience have respect for the production when there is no respect given to the audience? It's robbery!

Emilie R. Hurley - I saw Merchant of Venice last December 10th. Mr. Pacino did a superb performance. I have always been in awe of his acting since I was 16 years old (The Godfather Part I). Now I am 53 and still have that feeling. His performance as Shylock was superb. Reading the play is one thing but seeing Shylock come to life and seeing Mr. Pacino as Shylock is quiet an unforgetable experience. Mr. Pacino can portray the role. Any role for that matter. He becomes that person... that character. Honestly, I do not think Marlon Brando (may his soul rest in peace) could have surpassed Mr. Pacino's talent in acting. I cannot wait to see Mr. Pacino play the role of Henri Matisse.

Kay - Anyone who had a good seat on Friday night will be very lucky to acquire an equally good seat when they re-book for another date. Many people booked many months in advance to be sure of having an excellent seat. I imagine the best seats for all dates were booked out long ago and many people, (especially those who must travel) may have limited dates on which they are available to attend again. Good luck and I hope you are all able to see Anthony, eventually. At least the hotels are doing well out of this. There should definitely be compensation for all additional costs occurred.
