Never heard of this show.


living under a rock? you must have missed the Tonys this year LOL


Well, I would imagine that many non-Americans who do not have PayTV (or Cable as I believe you call it) would have missed the Tonys as they are sadly not as prolific in other countries.

I only know about it cause friends of mine saw it during previews and on their reviews I've looked it up.

I saw it in NY, and absolutely loved it. Sutton Foster is so amazing, I've loved her before this, but this made me love her even more. My favorite song was probably "Show Off" (the one they performed at the Tonys), I can't wait until the sheet music comes out; I smell a school talent show song! :)


Alright...so, we're TOTALLY twins.


I've always wanted a twin!!!

Can we be the hott twins? (Notice the hot has TWO t's, for double the hottness factor. :P)

<33


Of corse, of course. :D

I saw it last Wednesday night. (Spoilers kind of)

The show is just fabulous. I've never seen something so clever and innovative in a long time - just everything from the phone ringing to the CD skipping to putting on the wrong record for Act II... it's just brilliant.

(End "kind of" spoilers)

Bob Martin is just perfect. There's no other way to describe the man. I watched him for a lot of the show, since he's obviously onstage the entire time. Just watching his reactions and everything... he's present the entire way through.

Saw it in LA too.. absolutely great.. the show was quick and tight.. never really slowing down.. I was feeling a lil tired and sluggish before we got to the theatre.. and I left feeling great. I've been dying to see it in NY just to relive the experience. Do yourself a favor and go see it. BTW the soundtrack doesn't do the show justice..see it live.

Yes, "Show Off" is the most catchiest song on the record. I have the Broadway Cast Album, I did a listen through, And it is a pleasant show, pretty funny.
