Least faves
Phanton of the Opera
Cats
Les Miz
Wicked

Phantom and Wicked, along with Chicago were some of my least favorites also. I don't understand the hype for some of these shows, they go on forever while other shows we loved close almost immediately

I loved Les Miserables. I saw it three times.

I hated Chicago. The music is atrocious.

I liked Mama Mia, but that was because a friend was in the Broadway show.

West Side Story is back on Broadway. They tried to stay close to the original Jerome Robbins choreography, yet update the show a bit.

I saw a the retrospective, Jerome Robbins on Broadway several years ago and they did most of the dance numbers to WSS. If the choreography is as close as that, this is a show not to be missed live.

I was wondering if anyone's seen Shrek? I got a bargain email from Playbill the other day & thought it might be fun to see it.

We saw Shrek and we loved it, it was so much fun. Donkey was excellent!

Last night we saw Celtic Woman at Radio City Music Hall (not a Broadway show, I know) and they were fabulous. This is our 3rd year seeing them on St. Patty's weekend in NYC. We are going back to see them again tonight - when the tickets went on sale we got a little crazy and bought for both nights. If you ever get to see them in person, do it. The show is beautiful.

Broadway dimmed it's lights tonight, for a moment at 8:00 in tribute of Ron Silver, who died earlier this week of cancer.

"Actor Ron Silver, who won a Tony Award as a take-no-prisoners Hollywood producer in David Mamet's "Speed-the-Plow" and did a political about-face from loyal Democrat to Republican activist after the Sept. 11 attacks, died Sunday at the age of 62.

"Ron Silver died peacefully in his sleep with his family around him early Sunday morning" in New York City, said Robin Bronk, executive director of the Creative Coalition, which Silver helped found. "He had been fighting esophageal cancer for two years."

Broadway will probably dim it's lights again tomorrow night for Natasha Richardson.

This has been a bad week for losing great Broadway actors.

Natasha was getting ready to perform on Broadway with her mom, Vanessa Redgrave in the Sondheim musical, "A Little Night Music".

I've heard that the scenes with just the Puerto Ricans in them will be all in Spanish.

Whoops! I missed this post.

My friend was in the emsemble & understudy for one of the fathers. It might have been the Colin Firth role.

He also was understudy for the lead in "Ring of Fire" and did get to play it a few times.

He has a brilliant voice. The first time I heard him I said to myself, "That's magic!" That a person can be just standing in front of you in a very ordinary moment, and then start singing Maria, from West Side Story, and transform the moment into pure magic.

That's also why I love Broadway & the theatre so much. One moment we're all sitting there - a room of total strangers. Yet we all collectively agree that we're going to collaborate with the people on the other side of the curtain, to turn the place into a magical event for 2 hours.
