Ahhh, okay! I saw the show yesterday (my friend won the lottery outside the theatre). First time seeing this new cast and I thought they were very good. We had the understudy David O'Reilly on for Elder Cunningham. He was very good and although not all of his jokes landed in the first act (I suppose that's partly to do with the audience) his songs were hilarious! Particularly Baptise Me which is always funny! KJ Hippensteel was also very good, and ranks very highly among those I've seen in the role! Stephen Ashfield is still as brilliant as ever, but I'd be surprised if he didn't leave at the next cast change, purely because he's been there from the beginning! It was so slick and excellent, and in my opinion it's still one of the best shows on the west end! (although I'm still not sure who is buying all of those £120+ tickets!)
Are the lotteries in London and New York still busy?
New York's is still pretty busy, especially right now with tourist season starting up, but they seem to do the retweet-lotto almost every day at this point rather than just at the end of the week. The in-person lotto got a little bigger for a while when people were able to come over after losing Hamilton (now with Ham4Ham being digital, not as much anymore).
I may not know everything, but I know a cast recording is not a soundtrack.
