How can someone think editing her out makes it better? Those shows can be a bit of a trainwreck when you get someone like her or Big Narstie on and you're trying to figure out how much they're in on the joke of how out of step they are, but that's the fun of it. I watch the Big Fat Quiz to see Jimmy Carr have a meltdown trying to keep people on script and those folks deliver.

I got to see it on Broadway. The set and staging is just intensely creative and effective. If you can make it happen you owe it to yourself.

The comedy bit is that this is when Mel B of Spice Girls fame played Mimi and she was the worst part by far.

The current RENT tour is a lovely non-Eq production with a completely different set, direction and a bunch of cast that look like they just got out of high school.

Donít ruin it. Just get the DVD of the final Broadway cast and watch that.

My aunt got tickets to go see Beetlejuice next Thursday, and I'm super excited. I suggested it to her last week as a "maybe whenever" idea and she had tickets by the weekend.

Warning that this groupís other piece, The Comedy About A Bank Robbery, is far worse. Unless you really really love fork handles/four candles-esque puns.

The Play That Goes Wrong is loving brilliant though.

I want to see that, as it sounds like the same concept as the British group Mischief Theatre, who did Peter Pan Goes Wrong and A Christmas Carol Goes Wrong. Those are pantomime productions, so I'm not sure an American audience would care for them as much, but they were both aired by the BBC so worth hunting down and checking out at least.

e: ah, Play That Goes Wrong is also by Mischief theatre, so more than just a similar concept!

Peter Pan Goes Wrong was wonderful. I couldn't get as much into Christmas Carol though, I think leaving the one-stage format broke it for me and took me out of the visceral nostalgia.

Yeah, I haven't seen Christmas Carol yet but I think the unexpectedness of how Peter Pan went was such a factor in me liking it. Always hard to do a sequel that hits as well.

We had Dear Evan Hansen last night, and it was so good. Always appreciate a show that's so long where one actor is in, I believe, every scene and kills it. In a season where we had Hamilton I'm glad it seems to have been getting great turnouts, as so far it's the best show we've had here imo.

I was all hype to watch it then got drunk after work and forgot. The good news is I'm off today and will be watchin that poo poo FO SHO!! Been really excited since they announced this. Michelle Williams is a treasure, and Sam Rockwell is lowkey genius casting for Fosse imo.

We had to do a bunch of Ragtime poo poo for choir one year, and I'd forgotten how much fun it was until now. I think the music hits the perfect medium between approachable and musically clever, really evocative of time and place in a way that a lot of other shows miss completely (Showboat, anyone?).

The show opens with a reporter reporting on the flop the actors are in, so they're having real reporters cameo.

Netflix has a documentary called "Bathtubs Over Broadway". It's about a Late Night with Letterman writer who became obsessed with tracking down cast albums from corporate created musicals. Wonderful little film.

We've been in New York since Wednesday, celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary a few months early. This was our first trip back since our October 2009 honeymoon. We saw Hamilton on Thursday night with excellent orchestra seats in row O, and it not only lived up to all the hype, but surpassed it. I was psyched to recognize our Lafayette/Jefferson, James Monroe Iglehart, as Titus' Broadway rival Coriolanus Burt, from The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

We just came back from seeing Chicago, a brilliant idea we had yesterday, after scoring even better orchestra seats in row E. That was particularly well-timed, seeing it just a few days after this week's excellent Fosse/Verdon episode about the making of Chicago. My wife and I agreed we still like the movie better, but the girl who played Roxie Hart is a superstar in the making, and far better than Renee Zellwegger.

We have to leave tomorrow, which is a bummer, except it has been super-expensive. We've also been eating like kings, though.

Whoever chose 'The Whole Being Dead Thing' for Beetlejuice's performance needs to take another listen to that cast album. 'Beautiful Sound' would have been much better.
