Definitely have read since I am a loyal avid fan of his but I saw someone on here who actually went to the show last night and I wanted to get their perspective. I've heard good things too. I'd do anything to get there to see it myself but being a CA native, its a bit hard. Also whaat board were you referring to? TY!

I love Sutton Foster and I'm sure she did an awesome job. OTOH, how was Joel Gray--he's gotta be pretty old now.

Many times when a show is new it does not have Sunday matinees for the first few weeks. We wanted to see Baby It's You on Sunday afternoon, but they haven't started matinees yet (We're going Saturday night)

DD is trying to pick two shows to see and she is making herself crazy She narrowed it down from 20 to 10! She took out things she has either already seen or things that are coming locally in the next six months (I know it isn't the same as a Broadway show but she had to narrow it somehow).

She is leaning heavily toward Phantom - the only one that we don't want to see. She loves everything Phantom though and has only seen a community theater version (plus the movie & book).

These are her remaining choices. Any must see ones for a 16 y/o?

Chicago, Rock of Ages, Spider-Man, Mary Poppins, Memphis, Jersey Boys, Phantom of the Opera, The Book of Mormon, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Mamma Mia.

When we saw Spider-Man in December it was 3 hours long! I know they keep reworking it, but you said you have time constraints.

I didn't care for Chicago that much. Rock of Ages is a ton of fun. You can't go wrong with Memphis, Jersey Boys, Mary Poppins or Mamma Mia. I haven't seen How to Success yet, but have heard good things.

These are her Saturday choices. We are there all day/night Saturday so there aren't any time constraints on that day. We will do a matinee and evening show.

Sunday she is debating between Priscilla & Billy Elliot. Billy Elliot is coming here in a few months so I think she is going to go with Priscilla on Sunday.

She is asking all her friends on FB and getting the same response. "You have to see this, this, this, this and this." She keeps responding with, "You people are NOT helping." The good news is it sounds like she really can't go wrong.

If you are going soon, You wouldn't be able to see Spider-Man. It's currently on hiatus. It's not coming back until May something. I think 12 but I'm not sure.
I have seen Phantom and it's pretty good.
I saw How to succeed last week and LOVED it!!! It's the most fun i've had at a broadway show in a while. it's and extra plus if your DD is a Harry Potter fan. I'm also going to see the show again on Wednesday.
I haven't seen any of the others but I heard that Mamma Mia isn't that good. It's not like the movie (if that's what you are basing it on). Chicago isn't also like the movie. But Christie Brinkly currently is in it as Roxie.

Is it possible that this Sunday's schedule is a little different from normal because it is Easter?

Kate: The moment that I met you, my life became extraordinary. You taught me to be my best self, to look forward to tomorrow’s adventures. And when I was vulnerable, you were strong. I love you Richard Castle and I want to live my life in the warmth of your smile and the strength of your embrace. I promise you that I will love you, be your friend, and your partner in crime and in life. Always.

Rick: The moment we met, my life became extraordinary. You taught me more about myself than I knew there was to learn. You are the joy in my heart. You’re the last person I want to see every night when I close my eyes. I love you Katherine Beckett. And the mystery of you is the one I want to spend the rest of my life exploring. I promise to love you, to be your friend and your partner in crime and in life. Till death do us part, for the time of our lives.

Kate: This has been an epic year, Life's been full of joy & tears. Solving crimes & catching killers, Just like Castle's favorite thrillers. We share a passion every day, As partners go, we're here to stay

I hated Chicago. Boring.
Spider Man is on hiatus
Mary Poppins was OK, it's not like the movie.
Phantom is OK, but I'm not a fan of that type of show
How to Succeed was great! I loved it, I'd seen it again in a heartbeat. Daniel Radcliffe does a great job. John Laroquette is pretty good too.
I haven't seen Mamma Mia, but my sister has seen it twice. It's much better than the movie, at least according to her. It has to be considering most of the movie's cast really can't sing!

The Book of Mormon got great reviews.

I doubt you can get Book of Mormon tickets soon unless you pay for premium seats. I tried! I want to see How to Succeed but I couldn't fit it in. Reviews are good though.
