There is a lot about the preview over on talkingbroaday.com if anyone is interested. There was an article in the newspaper about the thing falling from the ceiling and hitting the woman. Scary!
I'm so envious you got to see this. I LOVE la Patti, despite her odd diction and would KILL to see her in this role.
What did you think of the ending? I know it's different from the usual ending.
Oh, and for what it's worth, Tyne Daly KILLED in this role. She was very sick when they made the album and didn't want to do it. In fact, she fought against doing it since she didn't have a voice. For contractual reasons, she had no choice. I feel bad for her because it doesn't show off her amazing voice.
She is one of my favorite actresses so it's disappointing she was 'forced' to make that recording.
Laura Benanti plays Gypsy, right? Just checking.
