I'm amazed Sophie could be considered so highly on anyone's list. Are you sure you are not confusing the actress with the performance? Because as an actress she is very talented and a lovely person, but she is all wrong for this role. Or is it just because she is paired with Alice? Genuinely curious, not meaning to sound a dick haha.
A little more positivity is a wonderful thing. Your need to endlessly repeat your opinions gives the impression that you want everyone to either agree with you or argue with you until you get the desired reaction. Quality is better than quantity where words and posts are concerned.
I would think it's the Broadway version. I think yo would have known if it was pre-Broadway, because You Will Be Found was only written for Broadway (though a snippet from it was also in the earlier editions).
I never knew that - that number literally gives me chills, truly one of my standout experiences from live theatre.
A day in that London for me tomorrow, with Girl From the North Country in the afternoon. It'll be my first theatre trip in TWO WHOLE MONTHS and I've been really missing it.
I feel the very same withdrawal symptoms if I go too long without seeing a show! Now I've just seen three in quick succession after a month off, I've now got to prepare myself for another month of cold turkey until Young Frankenstein in October. The struggle is real!
I enjoyed this last night more than I thought I would. The set and the lighting effects were beautiful, and the story was engaging (mostly). There were some numbers which I found myself drifting away mentally, as unfortunately, thoughts turned to my numb posterior. It just feels like a long time to be sat without having a walk around, but again this is partly my own fault for booking the show for a day when I'd been sat down most of the day for staff training
Imelda was a true joy, and Janie Did very well, despite fluffing on a few of her lines. Overall a wonderful night at the theatre.
