OMG! one of the best freakin' shows I have seen ever! Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal were FANTASTIC and, while the rest of the cast was weak in the dance department, the voices more than made up for it. Such a wonderful night at the theatre!
I love love love love love love musical theatre -- except for one, okay...maybe two things.
first: It should be legal to punch people who sing along in the mouth. seriously, do you think that ANYONE wants to hear YOU? No one is impressed that you know the words -- we ALL know the words. Do you think that the person in the suit next to you is an agent/producer who is going to whisk you away to stardom? Really? here's a hint: JUST SHUT UP!!!!!
second(ly?): Why are there concession stands at live theatre? I do not want to listen to candy being unwrapped during the show - the occasional cough drop is okay but digging in the bag to find the yellow candy is NOT okay. Sell water, coffee, drinks, and those humongous cookies ...but not twizzles, sour straws, skittles, m&m's or anything else that will be taken back into the show. At least there wasn't popcorn.
All in all, a wonderful way to spend a Tuesday. I'm not even too disappointed that I missed American Idol.
