Erivo, Graham, Gotay, and more to lead A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC IN CONCERT
 Jun 29 2024, 12:41:28 AM

I want to say what a delightful evening it was!   As stated in an earlier post, I went in with low expectations - but left feeling so happy  to have seen it.

it wasn’t perfect - few things are - but the performances tonight were moving, entertaining, and delivered with so much heart.  
The orchestra sounded glorious - though the tempi were sluggish in Act 1.   
What a delightful night of music.

I, too, thought this was going to be something special and waited at my computer the morning tickets went on sale to snap them up.

Now that I’ve seen the cast list (not just the performers), see how poorly this is selling, and watching ticket prices drop - I feel like a fool. I was hoping for a while that the whole damn thing would be cancelled.
I’m going tomorrow evening.  I hope I’m pleasantly surprised.  But I have a lot of disappointment to get

I had a ticket for this tomorrow and was so disappointed to receive the email earlier today that she would be out.   I’m not going to be able to book a different evening between now and Sunday.

i hope she’s ok.

A show I can’t stop thinking about. . .

Count me among those who found this a glorious presentation - I loved it last Friday, and was fortunate to be able to return last night.

Among the others previously mentioned, I want to call out Eddie Cooper, whose performance as the kind and devoted steward, Henry Etches, was flawless and played with a dignity that broke my heart.

i would love a recording of this production: glorious orchestrations performed beautifully.

I loved the evening, but the orchestra was a problem.  Off beat, too loud, too loud, too loud, and sloppy.  That’s ultimately the conductor’s fault - and whoever was helping with the sound check during rehearsal.  Sad not to have had them play those gorgeous orchestrations with more skill and finesse.

Despite that, the evening was a Wow with some stunning performances, touching moments, and  a hall filled with an audience who love and celebrate this

And, I, too, was in the front row mezz last night.

Perfect seats on a perfect night with perfect celebrations from beginning to end.

Incredibly brave and important words from Kelli.

It was an exquisite show filled with passionate, strong and heartbreaking performances.  I’ll be forever grateful to have seen it - both off Broadway and on.  
I do wish Kelli had won the Tony for work that was beyond what anyone else was doing.  In the end, I’m grateful she was able to do this show which meant so much to her. 
Brava, Kelli.

Her work this season was so far beyond what anyone else was doing.  She was robbed.

Kelli was extraordinary.

I was watching them, also.  They started it on a classy note.  They looked more and more uncomfortable as the rants went on.

The more I think about the speeches the more insulted I feel.   They were angry and full of blame and I was sorry to leave the theater on that note.

It’s hard to remember.  They went on and on and on and on and on and on. . .  And on and on and on. . .

So glad to hear Lindsay is back in!

if any of the 3 leads are out, can tickets be exchanged?  Just curious.

I’m biased - I was in it - and from the first rehearsal through the final performance, it was a thrill.

Great cast!  

CAMELOT to close in July

What a shame!

When I saw it in early previews the audience energy was so strong it lifted the entire production up and infused it with a passion that felt lacking when I saw it after it opened.   The cast played their hearts out - and I wish they'd had a more successful run.   

I'll always be glad to have seen it - and to have even felt passionate about it at the start.
