Ooh! Are we messing with Adora?

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.

At the same time, "Adam Driver, you killed Han Solo! Not cool man!" Wouldn't have fit the song so I think they chose right.

The Prom had the best performance of the night in my super biased opinion.

Caught both Six and Betrayal at the West End a few months ago. Both terrific, both coming to Broadway soon. Six was brilliant but I canít imagine it without British accents, and I still canít believe how Pinter and cast made me deeply care about those insufferable toffs.

It's a little late, but PBS is airing "The King and I."

I saw the tour of Dear Evan Hansen the other night.
I was blown away by how good it was. I had listened to the score once like a year ago and it seemed fine, but in the context of the show it was really, really good.

DEH was great, but I'm afraid that it's going to wind up being like Rent; great music, painfully dated.

Just booked tickets for Miss Saigon when it hits Toronto in May. My kids love it, we have the Blu-ray of the London west end 25th anniversary show.

Also, I'm super stoked to be playing Pablo in a community theater production of Sister Act.

Saw The Bandís Visit last night. Really wonderful, unique musical. Highly recommend if you get the opportunity to see it. Phenomenal.

Finally, someone else saw DEH! We saw it at The Kennedy Center in August. I loved Mike Faist as Connor but Marrick Smith really grew on me.

DEH is great and Iím on record saying it was more enjoyable than Hamilton, which were both on the same season here.

I wanted to like DEH, but the more I thought about the plot the more unhappy I was with the relatively happy ending. He pulls a stunt that in reality would shatter a family, and the only real consequence is that he loses his girlfriend. If youíre going to tackle serious subject matter then donít pander to the audience.

The current touring production of Once On This Island is fantastic. A truly excellent revival.

Evan wasn't shamed on social media. The letter is released, the internet turns on the Murphy's, Evan confesses to the Murphy's, and they don't reveal his duplicity.

I love this play and itís a shame their follow-up things havenít been anywhere near as good.

Anyone seen the Back to the Future musical that opened in Manchester? I liked what little I heard on their Youtube channel, and a few people I follow on Twitter liked it (including Captain Disillusion). I have a trip to the UK coming up in March and I'm sorely tempted to take an entire day off from my own vacation in London just to have a day trip to Manchester.

I liked Peter Pan. Christmas Carol though... I think it was the TV-based framing instead of a stage show that broke it for me. There's less of a "just roll with it" spirit.

Peter Pan is their second best thing, yeah, but The Comedy About A Bank Robbery was awful and their recent show, while it had some good jokes involving sets, repeated a lot of the same gags over and over.

I just saw Come From Away. Holy poo poo! This show is ridiculously good. I just knew the barest bones of the premise and had heard a couple of songs before seeing the show and I was completely blown away. Well worth seeing if you get a chance.

It really really does. Kimiko has an incredibly powerful voice. I love "It Only Takes a Taste" and "When he sees me"

Sara Bareilles is such a fantastic song writer. I just started listening to album she did performing songs from Waitress.

Edit: Found out it is touring near me! Bought tickets to see it. This is my first live musical to see.:3:
