I've always liked that show more than 'Rent'! (ducks).
Not too keen on 'Last Five Years' tho.

It is much better than rent, so much more depth and truth in the words!

Love Tick Tick Boom. And LOVE TL5Y even more! (IMO opinion one of THE all time great pieces of musical theatre writing EVER. Just about every song is a master class piece.) The shame is that both productions are on while I will be in the USA! If only there'd been more publicity about these much earlier, I could have planned my US visit around them. Ah well, I guess I'll get over my disappointment when I see my 6 shows in New York!

As a piece of theatre, you have to see it done well to appreciate it. Some shows, you can see a half-decent production of them and see the potential. With the Last 5 Years, you need to see it done right. It's a special show.
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

I love tick, tick... BOOM! more than anything. I have always promised myself that if there is a production in England I will go, no matter what.

Unfortunately, the "no matter what" bit is my degree. It is literally show or degree. Either/or.

*cries*

well, Rent Remixed is the best show I have ever seen, but for about 3 years now, Tick, Tick... BOOM! has been my FAVOURITE show, I just have never had a chance to see it, however, I have read the script many a time!

I saw the Atherton/Spicer L5Y at the Haymarket and was deeply unimpressed. I think it's great that Notes... gives exposure to American writers that we otherwise just don't get over here, but it wasn't a patch on the Menier's production or the original cast.

Atherton's singing was stuck in Kate Monster helium mode; Spicer seemed to be concentrating on singing prettily rather than acting (plus forgot his words and flubbed his high notes); and the direction was baffling (twirl, Cathy! Twirl with your imaginary dance partner!). Maybe it will suit the Duchess better, and I'm sure they'll have worked on it a bit more in the meantime.

I REALLY want to see Tick Tick Boom, though, as I missed it with NPH et al at the Menier. I didn't like Paul Keating's Seymour in Little Shop but that was more the direction than his performance and think he'll suit Jon down to the ground.

^Its more of a thing that for me to come to London for a weekend would cost atleast 100, which i can't really afford at the moment.

Hopefully though the shows will return sometime after September :P
