Christina Applegate no showed the Sunday after Thanksgiving, what a joke. The choreography was a joke too. The actors did an admirable job and sang their hearts out, thus saving this theatergoing experience. The set design was safely creative, and the lighting was well done. The orchestra was simply TOO LOUD, and they should take into consideration that the house is half empty when setting volume levels.

A boring story, bad choreography, cramped seating, and a no show "star" should have sunk this ship. Kudos to the understudy and the company for pulling together and making the show marginally entertaining. Sweet Charity is playing to half full houses and charging $100 per seat, pay for the nosebleeds and just move up. Or, here's a better idea, go see something else.

Don Quixote de la Mancha returns to Braodway in a production which befits "The Impossible Dream". Casting, direction and stage design all mesh into a flawless whole. Brain Stokes Mitchell breathes power and life into the role created so well by Richard Kiley almost 40 years ago. Mary Ellen Mastroiani's Dulcinea is earthy and a powerful counterpoint to the dreamer of the "impossoble dream."
It is an important work of musical theater that deserves to be experienced by a new generation. This is being written while the show is still in previews. So, it can only get better -- more perfect, if tha tis possible.
