Post POSSIBLY GOIN TO SEE ORIG CAST
I'm so excited! I've heard so many good reviews on this musical! Yesssss. I hope we see it when we go to New York (choir trip)

BUT- we may see POTO but I love that as well- very obsessed- note the avatar...

but I TOTALLY love how the Man in chair is just.... MAN IN CHAIR

:D did I mention how excited I am? feel free to post more random comments here- oh and does everyone think this is a musical for all musical fans? I assume so...

all MAN IN CHAIR fanatics post a shout out.. I'm bored and abusing my school computers.

Even neater, Man In Chair, Bob Martin, is the author (one of) and his entire costure consist of a old sweater. I met him after the show at the stage door, and it was basically the same guy sans sweater. Nice guy too.

As opposed to like Adolpho who probably could never be recognized out of costume.

BTW, I think Bob lost out big-time at the Tony's this year. He IS the show, but since it's officially a musical, but he doesn't sign (except for briefly in Bride's Lament and the reprise of As We Stumble Along), it tough to compete for Best Male Lead in a musical.

But at they (accurately) describe it, its not really a musical per se, it's a musical within a comedy or within a play, and in those categories he should have won.

Nope, I am sorry, but The Drowsy Chaperone is a musical. All those frameworks really mean is that the show is a meta-musical, but it is a musical nonetheless.
