Chatterbox: Pudding's Place



I absolutely love them. I recently saw Come From Away, and it was amazing! I'm going to see Hamilton on Broadway over spring break. 

This thread is for people to talk about what musicals they are going to see, or what musicals they WANT to see.

Oh my goodness! YES!!! I think that I have subconsciously been wishing for this thread for my whole life. I am (probably) going to see Les Mis this spring, and I am so excited. I love it so much, and it's on tour NEARISH TO ME! This is the most exciting thing I can think of that has ever happened to me. And you are going to see Hamilton? That sounds awesome. Tell me how it goes!

Spellbound and I saw Hamilton in Chicago about a year ago, and it was just amazing! It was especially fun because my IRL name is Eliza, and I got a shirt that says "and Peggy" XD. I hope to see lots of musicals, but my first choices would be Les Miserables and Dear Evan Hansen.

Oh my gosh, you're so lucky!! I really wanted to see Hamilton!! Have you heard that there's going to be a movie of Hamilton released in 2021?

Anyways, have you heard of Dear Evan Hansen? It's really good, and I loved it so much! I couldn't see the play, but I listened to the soundtracks, and it was amazing! I really want to see Dear Evan Hansen, though.

Musicals are pretty great, yeah.

I've seen Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, Dear Evan Hansen, and Hadestown on Broadway, and I also saw Hamilton in DC, which I'm pretty proud of :)

I've listened to the soundtracks of SO MANY, though. They're pretty fun, and I always make obscure references in conversation. People don't always get it, but I crack myself up, haha.

I heard that there's a movie called "Cats" happening this year.

It was released in late 2019. I saw it and loved it, although may critics gave it bad reviews.

It was based on the stage musical.

@Admins, you go! I've been scouring the internet for good reviews, but I just keep finding people yelling about the CGI. I thought it was pretty good, barring the first two songs (Jennyanydots and Rum tum tugger). 

I often don't agree with "the critics." Cats has great music! Such a variety of styles to fit the variety of feline personalities. I loved seeing familiar actors dressed as cats. I think my favorite part was the Railway Cat sequence. People who expect an exciting story with intricate plot may be disappointed, but the music, dancing, and other movements were great!

Cats has great music, but no plot. And from what I've seen, the cats look really creepy. I don't want to judge too hard because I haven't actaully seen the movie... But I heard that they are doing reshoots, which is ridiculous. Just accept the bad reviews. Anyway, there's my input.

I'm going to see the Mean Girls touring company tonight! I am SOOO excited! And tomorrow, I'm going to see Kinky Boots matinee. It's a theater weekend; I feel so lucky to do all these awesome things! Okay, the end.

I really want to see Hamilton, but I probably won't see it soon. I've seen Wicked and School of Rock in New York (Wicked on broadway!), and The Lion King and Waitress at the Fox (yes I live near there). I also really want to see Hadestown and Six.

Ahh I got Hamilton tickets for my birthday! It's coming pretty near to where I live and I've been wanting to see it for awhile, and my friend and I are going to see it together in March, I think. I'm so excited!
