Post A Tale of Two Cities
They have clips for many of the songs on the website:

You know, though I am rather excited to see this show (eventually), four words keep pounding into my mind as I look more into it:

Poor man's Les Misérables

I started a thread like this in The Stage Door...but I can tell you. This is a very different story than Les Mis. I saw it on Saturday, and I didn't think once of Les Mis.

The reviews were pretty great from its engagements elsewhere. I'm actually stoked for this!

Poor man's Les Miserables?

LOL

If anything, A Tale of Two Cities seems way more pretentious than Les Mis.

I saw the show for the second time this past Thursday. I live in Florida, so I was able to make it to Sarasota to see it in its off-broadway run, and I am happy to say that while it was amazing the first time, in the year or so since it has grown even better.

James Barbour absolutely brings down the house as Sydney Carton; he has a phenomenal baritone voice and conveys the character possibly better than it was even originally written.

The best part was that after the show, I was waiting at the stage door to get his autograph, and a few people were talking to the guard and going backstage. I thought they were friends/family of one of the cast members, and they might have been, but after a minute or so, the guard asked all the rest of us standing there if we'd like to go inside! "Everyone else is in there already".

We got a group backstage tour...from the stage of the Al Hirschfield (sp.)! The producer, writer, and star were all there answering questions and telling us anything and everything about the sets, costumes, special effects, etc. It was completely amazing...a fantastic way to end an already amazing theatre evening!

I would place Gypsy above it...but if you have the chance to see 2 shows, or if you've seen Gypsy already, then yes...most definitely worth seeing - one of the better shows I've seen in my time.
