I didn’t stay until the finale, so I can’t give my take on the show as a whole, but I was bored enough and had been bodychecked enough that I decided it wasn’t worth the further disappointment.

My biggest complaint is that

I'monly familiar with the film adaptation starring Audrey Hepburn. Does anyone here have knowledge or opinions on the stage version(s)? Do you think it could work on Broadway today?

RippedMan said: "I didn’t see her but I agree with your point. I think a lot of people are blinded by the “they look and sound just like them” so it sort of stuns them. Much like Frost winning for MJ."

Yes, the Tony went to them just because they were the best look-alikes. 🙄

Yes,it's incredibly derivative, if not a carbon copy of Punchdrunk works. And it's impressive!

This is the best show playing in NYC right now, imho.

How fitting for Michelle Visage to be the "judge" this past Saturday.

I don't wish the scrutiny of Broadway upon it, however. Wish it could find a permanent place Off Broadway to run forever without the heavy financial pressure, tourist indifference or overall cynism.

As for musical theater snobs, I feel like that's practically in the job description of being a critic ;)"

Feels inevitable that someday she will playAudra's daughter or mini-me (but she's probably not a Louise).

Given how hit or mess London transfers have been with critics as of late, I'd say that this would be tied neck-and-neck withGypsyas frontrunners for Best Musical Revival. Maybe even ah
