    Great job! I really liked the format you used. It was definately interesting. I agree with your list, i’m also curious about Sister Act, not that I have high hopes for it at all, but curious nonetheless. Any idea what Dan Radcliffe is going to do once it’s time to start promoting the last Harry Potter film? Wondering if they’ll take a hiatus during that time?

      Oooh, good point Carlos! I wondered that when he was doing EQUUS on Broadway with HALF-BLOOD PRINCE, but then they pushed the film back to the summer. I do not know what they’re going to do. The movie is in mid July. He’ll have to promote it probably Late May/early June through late July. I have no idea. HMMM!!

    I definitely think I’m most excited for:
    Priscilla: Queen of the Desert
    Anything Goes
    Sister Act

    My poll has almost 300 hits and WONDERLAND is in front (kind of hard to believe)!

      I can’t wait to see this classic with a modern twist as well.

      Great virtual tour of Broadway; chock full of NY sights and sounds!!

    I voted! Interesting so far. Is it sad that I completely forgot about Wonderland? I saw it in Houston last year during it’s out of town… it had really great moments, but those moment’s don’t make a great show. I’m sure it won’t be the same show I saw at all. Book of Mormon for the win!

    TWO WORDS: RAUL ESPARZA! I’m seeing ARCADIA next week. Other than that, I will definitely see THE PEOPLE IN THE PICTURE (TWO WORDS: DONNA MURPHY) and MASTER CLASS (TWO WORDS: TYNE DALY). I’ll probably see How to Succeed, but I don’t feel like I need to run to it. Also, I love the O’Neill too and not the Hirschfeld. So there. Great episode Jesse!
