Anarchist is GARBAGE
UGH!!!! Garbage. First off, the show is 75 minutes - Not 90 as advertised. I'm personally grateful for that fact although it would've been better and a lot less painful had it been 15 minutes. The worst show I've ever seen (I've seen over 1000 shows too) and not even close to being fit to be called a Broadway show. Do not waste your time or money on this bomb. Mamet's writing is nothing more than big ego pontificating to hear itself blah blah blah. This work should have been an essay, not a play. I felt so sorry for Ms LuPone and Ms Winger, trapped in hell for 75 minutes. The story is boring, very very very very hard not to fall asleep. Boring, nothing happens, uninteresting characters. And on top of it, miscast. Winger should have been the Anarchist and LuPone should have been the lawyer. Would've at least been more believable. I can't say enough negative things about this show. I had a deeply discounted ticket and still want my money back! Gave the show one star because I could not give it what it deserves, which is No Stars. The best thing about this show is the Golden theatre is a nice theatre! Unfortunately that, nor the two wasted remarkable actors in this show cannot save it from what will be a miserable death. It belongs in the garbage.

Good Arty Interpretation of MacBeth
Saw this MacBeth @ Lincoln Center Festival last summer. Really good production, clever interpretation, interesting, dramatic, engaging storytelling. I really liked it. I wouldn't pay Broadway prices, but I'd see it on a 50% discount and be happy that I did.

I LOVED Kinky Boots!
Saw a preview performance of Kinky Boots last evening, with 2 friends, and we were all very very very happy we went! The show was great! The music was wonderful, and the book was fabulous! Harvey - We laughed our behinds off!!! I am looking forward to the cast recording which I will definately be purchasing. Congratulations to Cyndi and Harvey on their B'way collaboration!!!! I think this show will win theatre goer's hearts. The story was really great, all the actors were superb, the direction and the sets were great. I will tell you now, Billy Porter is in serious contention for the Tony for best Actor in a Musical and Anne Leigh Ashford also should be nominated for Best supporting actress in a musical. These two give the kind of performances you remember for a long time. Kinky Boots is a fun story with a few good life lessons performed with love, passion and exuberance! What more could you ask for? An amazing finale? A happy ending? Kinky Boots - You got it! I go to the theater regularly and with Broadway being very expensive these days, even on discount, we must be choosy as to what we see, and I have no problem recommending that you choose Kinky Boots!!!! PS - l also loved all the Kinky Boots, they were fierce!!!!
