So, I saw it. I liked it. Not very thought-provoking and it's made for children. But then again, I saw it with my little brother and mother while we were in the city yesterday. So, the biggest thrill was that CHIP ZIEN (original Baker from "Into the Woods" was in it! AND, he walked down my side of the aisle several times during the show (audience interaction moments(?)) He was great in it. So were other cast members.

However, I don't understand why Erin Dillly was nominated for a Tony because the role that she plays isn't extremely featured nor exciting, nor exceptional enough for a Tony... in myyyy opinion.

Raul Esparza was great and so was Jan Maxwell, Marc Kudisch, and Kevin Cahoon (who scared children and myself as the 'Childcatcher')

Sadly, Philip Bosco was out during yesterday's matinee, so JB Adams played the role of Grandpa Potts. He did an outstanding job, but I would have been thrilled to see Philip Bosco in that role. I've met him before- he was at my high school doing a reading of "Our Town" and I chatted with him afterwards, and got his autograph. He was also supposed to come into my drama class there to chat, but because of the lack of good audience behavior during the "Our Town" showing, he decided not to. I hate high school students- they are soooo third grade!

Well, that's all I really have to say... other than that I got Marc Kudisch, Jan Maxwell, and Kevin Cahoon's autographs. I would have gotten more probably had it not been a matinee. The rest of the cast stayed in between the show. The children did however come out, but I didn't get their autographs- my little brother did.

Anyways, I recommend the show for children, and it's partly entertaining for adults as well. It gets better in the second act. The beginning was very slow and blah. By the end of the first act there was more energy and volume to the show.

Anyone else have opinions on this show?

I thought it was enjoyable. I took my 6 year old nephew to see it in July and it was his first Broadway show. Of course he loved the car. Jan Maxwell & Mark Kudish stole the show though - they were very, very funny.
