How was your experience?
I've seen this show several times in NYC, London and San Francisco. Of course you can't compare this to a million dollar production, but it was surprisingly good considering the limitations. I thought the actors playing Betty and Joe were very good, and Max also did well. The supporting cast was also good. The only disappointment to me was Norma. Her singing voice was sharp and her speaking voice was shrill. It was unpleasant whenever she sang or spoke. And she did not convey at all the true spirit of Norma, which is crucial to a good performance for this show. Her Norma was not sympathetic. You never believed she was capable of being a great star or having a comeback.
