I was excited about the theater version of Misery as it was Halloween and it starred Willis/Metcalf. So I got my preview tickets and went tonight with a friend. I had watched the movie version of Misery some time ago with Caan/Bates and knew it would be difficult to bring that kind of horror and drama to the stage. What I didn't expect was a comedy on stage. The audience literally laughed through most of the play and I found it rather unsettling. What I left with is that Laurie Metcalf is a comedic actor and that's what she delivered. Bruce Willis seemed to be uncomfortable with his character and didn't really deliver a memorable portrayal. I'm rather certain that this is not what Stephen King had in mind.

Evita - Got to go just to see Ricky Martin
In all honesty, a bit of a snooze. The star of this show was not Elena Roger (Eva Perone) It was Ricky Martin (Che) These were the only two memorable parts for me and in all honesty Elena wasn't really up to par. Max von Essen and Michael Cerveris both had beautiful voices that filled the theater but again their parts seemed demure compared to Rogers and Martins. When Elena Roger vocals got into the higher registers....it got a little munchkinlike. But all in all she gave a good performance. BUT... If anyone gets a chance to see this on Broadway with Ricky Martin do so. It's amazing how he has gone from pop star to Broadway star. He's a different person altogether. He must have studied musical acting/vocals prior to this show as his diction and tone is near perfect. I know that's a bit of a gush but he's truly memorable in this role and it was fun to see him in this character. Tony's..l dunno....but fun to see Ricky...

Saw Priscilla 3/13
This was a really good, fun, and entertaining show. I have seen many Broadway shows and cant remember one getting the applause and the long standing ovation as this did. The only thing bad I can say about the show is the very talented Nick Adams overly developed muscular body didnt quite fit the role of Felicia for me.....but thats just me....
