  1. Honestly, I’d prefer them to have a score that takes advantage of their voices more.

  2. Exactly. Fosse purposely made the songs in shows like Chicago and Sweet Charity easy to sing for actresses like Gwen Verdon, Ann Reinking, and Chita Rivera, because the focus of the show was on their dancing, and as legendary as they all are, none of them were big belters. Also, many of the numbers include lots of dancing, so the songs had to be easy to sing by someone who's almost out of breath.

  3. True, but Fosse had a LOT of input in the music. He was a complete control freak. I remember an interview with John Kander where he discussed working with Fosse, and he said Fosse was always adding or taking away things from the score to fit the dances he wanted to create. He mentioned Big Spender from Sweet Charity and how he had to stop Fosse at one point, because he kept wanting to add more and more beats and random instruments for the dance hall hostesses to move to.

  4. I know these got a lot of hate, but I think they’re excellent. Great pickle flavor that isn’t too strong. I definitely tasted the peanut flavor first, then the dill pickle flavor comes through. I know some people said the peanuts tasted rancid, but I didn’t get that at all.

  5. Looks like the goalpost wasn't far enough back for your argument.

  6. I don’t believe Andrew stepped down. He was stripped by the queen after public outcry expressed in an open letter signed by 100+ veterans putting her feet to the fire over Andrew’s negotiated settlement of his sex crime lawsuit—otherwise, he’d have gotten a pass.

  7. Keep an eye on those magpies this time around, gents.

  8. I mean, this was pretty much expected. They have been selling out the theater at ~100% since they announced the closing. I wouldn't be surprised if they extend it again. This show and its music has been a part of pop culture for decades, so people from not just New York or the U.S., but around the world will want to see it before it closes. Personally, I've lived in New York for almost 20 years and only saw it for the first time a few weeks ago, just because I knew it was closing. It was amazing, and I totally see why it's lasted for so long.

  9. I hope you had a nice trip and enjoyed our wonderful city!

  10. I've mentioned this before, but it's a story I like to tell every time I come across a post about Christina Applegate. In about 2005, I was working at a luxury hotel in Manhattan that had just opened, and we had celebrities coming in non-stop every day. I met everyone from Oprah to Martha Stewart to Will Smith. One night I was working late, and Christina Applegate came in to our lounge to have a drink with her mother. I had just seen her in a musical she was doing on Broadway called Sweet Charity, and I told her how much I enjoyed her performance and loved the show, as I was a big musical theater nerd and was in the show in high school. She spent a good ten minutes talking to me about the show and her work getting it going and rehearsals out of town and so much more. She couldn't have been nicer. Of all the celebrities I interacted with that year, she was definitely the most kind and genuine one that I met, and that conversation is one that I'll always remember. Also, later on, I came to realize that she had broken her foot during preview performances of Sweet Charity, and they were going to shut the whole production down until she convinced the producers and put in her own money to keep the production alive. She kept all of the cast and crew employed, and the show ended up running for 279 performances.

  11. Is the episode our already or does anyone know when it is

  12. I'd love a Sweet Charity revival with someone like Ariana DeBose. I saw the revival with Christina Applegate back in 2003, and she was great, but I'd love to see someone with a solid theater background with amazing singing and dancing skills. That show has so many great numbers, and it's perfect vehicle to showcase someone that's really talented.

  13. I had tickets for one of her first few shows and ended up seeing Julie instead when Lea got COVID. Truly enjoyed the production and am also so glad we can hear Lea this way! I wish I could see Lea too but whew the show is very slow at some parts so idk if it’s worth going back again just for her 😭

  14. Definitely go back if you're able. My roommate and I were both worried about the show being dated or slow, but honestly, we were completely enthralled the whole time, mostly because Lea is just so fantastic that you just can't keep your eyes off of her when she's on stage. I've seen many Broadway shows and her performance is hands-down the best I've seen. Right up there with when I saw Kristin and Idina in previews for Wicked. Just a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
