Titanic at City Center

VintageSnarker said: "Count me in the group who was glad to finally see this staged but not impressed by more than the singing and orchestra. I did not realize just how stacked the cast was but they couldn't completely cover up the issues in the material. I don't necessarily need fewer characters but it's difficult to fully empathize with such a large group except as victims of a disaster at the very end... which didn't really require a whole show to get us there.


'CATS: The Jellicle Ball' at PAC reviews

I liked Metropolis. I wouldn't go out of my way to have dinner there but it is perfect for PAC. I thinks mains were in the 30-40 price range.

I was looking at past posts by some of these folks and one of them only makes comments if it is in some form political. Not one post really discussing theatre at all. Just

I'm not sure what you are trying to say here as most Best Musical winners recoup.

Kimberly Akimbo didn't recoup, neither did A Strange Loop. Hades

Yes the residents on 8th Avehave been a disaster for two years now. They’ve got lawn chairs out there now and drinking corona. I could go on, but I’ll stop cause everytime I talk about this, people get all shook up in their boots."

Spring awakening is cooked

For some reason I guess the Mods seem to not have any issue with this persons posts.

After all the absurdities they spewed in the Gypsy thread I thought they were gone for good.

I just had a look at the Gypsy thread and it seems where a lot of their posts went off the rails they are no longer there.

Might be just me but I would consider not getting a nomination a possible "snub" but wouldn't consider it for the award itself.

Thanks. I did post a few pages back the actual dates they left as I was there for Crawford's final in NYC.

rosscoe(au) said: "That final Brightman / Crawford performance of Phantom in New York that I was so lucky to see. Brightman was a force of nature on that night. Her and Crawford could have powered Times Square it was that thrilling, beautifully sung."

Are you meaning they left the show at the same time or Brightman's final performance? I asked this when you mentioned it earlier in this thread but didnt see a response.

Every actor is contracted for 8 performances a week. Even with this being such a long and demanding show, nobody in this cast is a star (yet) and SOOO much of the appeal and allure is about this cast seeming to really be a band. They aren't taking performances off besides when absolutely necessary.

I'll forgive this because it played london after, but I think most people wouldn't consider a 2015 revival "recent". But you're right, that's the last time it was on broadway...
