I'm not much of a reviewer but all I can say is I highly highly recommend this show to anyone who is a theater fanatic.

The main character, Man in Chair is one of the most relatable characters of the season. He has a monolgue towards the end that brought tears to my eyes. The rest of the cast is fabulous the highlights being Beth leavel, Sutton Foster and one of my favorites Kecia Evans. The music is fabulous and the story itself, while mostly humerous has alot of heart. It is a true love-letter to Broadway and all that musical theater stands for!

I got a ticket off of TDF and the seat was in the rear orchestra which was fine because the show really encompasses the whole stage.

I loved it as well. I saw it last Saturday. The man in the chair had me laughing hysterically. The entire cast is funny and so talented.

I definitely found myself nodding along in agreement with the man in the chair's thoughts on Theatre audiences and such. lol *Bigtheatredorkrighthere*

Yep, agree ladies, this is one fun show, emphasis, to my surprise, on the fun.

I was very impressed with the dancing, not only of Sutton (is there another leading lady of her generation who can dance as well?) I was also impressed with the dance abilities of Troy Britton Johnson and Eddie Korbish, who do just the most lovely tap number.

And Danny Burstein! well done..

Of course the funny (channelling Vera from Mame?) Beth Leavel and charmingly eccentric Georgia Engel.

All in all, just a lovely time in the theater, once again to sweep me away to that other, magic land.

(And the crab cake at City Lobster was one of the best I've ever had--high praise from a Marylander!)
