It's not the Second Coming, but it's a strong arrival, and done on a shoestring.
Ok. I must see this, but I don't want to. I'm expecting the Second Coming.
@Cwabs "Yet" --- give it time. Dreamworks in the meantime.
That's right John. 2003 Ostrander-winner, but it was the opener in 2002.
I think 42nd Street was 2002. Season Opener.
Shrek isn't yet a Disney property.
I must be cast as Flo....I already have the voice for it!
Oh, I think it can accomplish its goals with a mix-gendered cast, and at least one juror is implicated as foreign, right? (I've seen the film more recently than anything). But there's a lot of "these people" and I get what you're saying. There may be something to it.
The whole "12 Angry People Other than White American Men" thing has always bugged me. The play was written for 12 angry white American men. In today's climate, that's what's going to give it the power to affect people. To leave them with a bad taste in their mouths. To affect change.
Yes, we have angry white American women. But right now, it's the men we need to be staring at, and this play is the perfect periscope.
Ms. Heath's lighting design is sublime indeed. Though subtle, I think the sound, by Carter McHaan, is excellent as well.
I think so to. It needs to find some distinguishing characteristics still. But the foundation is good-- tried and true.
Saw last weekend Saturday and while a little passive in some spots I found this to be a very moving and relatable play. Bravo to all involved!!
Anyone know how many employees and other staff will be here on a daily basis? How many others are expected to come for lessons, recitals, etc. a day? And how many parking spaces will there be upon completion of the building and site? Those who work in and frequent Overton Square are a bit curious.
Right? I'm a bit of an audiophile and record collector and always enjoy this show. It really succeeds where so many jukebox/pop/rock musicals just don't. Couldn't make press night this go-round due to conflicts. Hated it.
Boston and Orlando have music communities? I had no idea. Frankie camps? I had no idea. I've seen this stage production before - on Broadway the year it won the Tony for Best Musical and a couple of years later in Las Vegas. But the music is fun and I'll see it again at the Orpheum on Saturday.
She was one amazing woman and I'm looking forward to meeting her in the new world. 😊
Mark, she looks great, but no.
Damn she looks better now than she did 35yrs ago! Badass tough woman.
I loved the production. Still thinking about weeks later. I agree that Shaleen's character has a disturbing journey. I need to read the script...just thinking if the playwright could have developed that character more, though I truly admired the brevity and tautness of the story.
Shaleen's character really has one of the most interesting and disturbing journeys, I think.
