I haven't seen it, but I've heard wonderful things about it. Should be a fun time.

Castle Every morning I bring you a cup of coffee, just so I can see a smile on your face. Because I think you are the most remarkable, maddening, challenging, frustrating, person I've ever met. And I love you Kate

Castle: Everything Iíve ever done, every choice Iíve ever made, every terrible or wonderful thing thatís ever happened to me, itís all led me to right here, this moment with you.

Beckett: I need you to know that our partnership, our relationship, is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. You're an amazing man and I love you with all of my heart. Always.

Beckett: I found the tape. I found it. It's over. Senator Bracken, you are under arrest for conspiracy, fraud and the murder of my mother, Johanna Beckett.

Castle: She's proud of you. Wherever she is, she's proud.

I saw it, it was great! It's very faithful to the original Roald Dahl book, and it's funny, totally twisted, and very sweet.

The cast is incredible. We saw Milly Shapiro as Matilda (there are 4 girls sharing the role who alternate at each performance) and she was amazing - and so tiny! Milly is 10 years old, but Matilda is only 5, and she still totally looked 5 on stage. Bertie Carvel is hysterical and completely terrifying as Miss Trunchbull, and the couple who play Matilda's parents are also really horrible and hysterical too. Like I said, it's a really twisted show!

But it was awesome. My mom liked it so much that she just got tickets to see it again so she can take my dad can see it.

Have a great time!

I see Matilda on May 16th, and Pippin on May 10th! Very much looking forward to both!

I saw Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike last week. I enjoyed it, but I definitely didn't love it.

I hope you enjoy it!

I'm actually very disappointed that I wasn't able to catch The Testament of Mary. :-(

That one sounded interesting.


If I could see everything I wanted to see, I'd be at the theater 2-3 times a week . . .

Me too; wouldn't that be an amazing thing? LOL

My best friend saw it and raved about Fiona Shaw (I have to admit, I'm a big Fiona Shaw fan).

Have you (or anyone else) seen Murder Ballad?

I also have tickets for Nikolai and the Others and Far From Heaven; both in June.

We're in the same boat! Bought tix for our June/July trip and got notified yesterday that they're closing after Mother's Day.

Oh well, time to find another show to put in it's place.

We saw Spiderman. I didn't expect much going in, but was very surprised! We LOVED the show. It has great character development and story line. The ariel work is amazing.

Just saw PIPPIN last night. It was absolutely incredible... it's not my favorite show, but after seeing it last night I do have to say that this production is without a doubt one of the best productions I have ever seen. I'm already planning a return visit.

If you get the chance *RUN* and see it! I don't know what ticket sales are generally like, but I do know that last night's performance was sold out; they do offer Standing Room Only (SRO).

Next week:Macbeth and Matilda!

I've never been to new york so I don't know what all is playing but I will say that the stage version is so much better than the movie.

Saw Matilda on Friday night; absolutely loved it! I also saw Milly Shapiro in the title role, and thought she was incredible. Actually, I was in awe of all of the children on that stage! That choreography looks hard enough as it is, and not a single one of those children missed a beat. Beyond impressive! My mind was blown by the alphabet sequence with the blocks and the gates. I was expecting a little more "magic", but really enjoyed the show overall. "When I Grow Up" is currently my favorite song and has been on repeat all weekend!

I also saw Pippin and Macbeth last week. Pippin was an amazing night at the theatre, and is my choice for winning Best Revival of a Musical at the TONYS next month.
