Hey guys. I just wanted to tell you I am going to New York for Tuesday and Wed. I am seeing Titanic and Footloose on Brodway. Anyways, don't discuss too much without me!

Be sure to tell us what you thought of "Titanic: The Musical." I've seen it twice...thought it was good the first time I saw it....bought the cast recording and fell in love with the story told in song...saw the show a second time and really enjoyed it. The show is coming to Detroit next spring and I am planning to see it again. I'll share more after Laura posts her impressions!!

I did not like Titanic at all. I thought it was boring. However, I LOVED Footloose. I met the cast and the whole bit. But, I had a great time! You dont know how good it is to get back home and WATCH New York on TV. I also saw Carson Daly from MTV's "Total Request". So, that was interesting.

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't like "Titanic: The Musical" but I'm not surprised at all. I first saw the show last May and thought it was a decent show, but I wasn't terribly impressed. Then I bought the Cast Recording CD and began to listen to the music and fell in love with the story and characters through the lyrics and song. Six months later, I still get teary-eyed during some of the songs....my favorite is definitely "The Proposal/The Night Is Alive" (Brian D'Arcy James has a great voice and did a wonderful job singing!!!).
Anyways, I took my husband and two sons to see the show in July while we were there on vacation. Although they had seen "Titanic" several times plus previous movie versions and so knew the story, they were not at all impressed by the stage musical version. The saving grace for me was that a coworker's brother was a stagehand on the show and got us in for a mini-backstage tour before the show and a more thorough backstage tour after the show, including a walk up the boarding ramp!!! That was really interesting, so made the show worthwhile.
Still, I plan to see the show when it comes to Detroit in the spring for a run at our new Detroit Opera House stage. Knowing the music makes the experience more enjoyable and worthwhile. Through the music, I've come to know the characters in this show, just as I came to know the characters in "Titanic" and all its previous versions by watching the movies and miniseries. Maybe this is a show that just has to grow on you!?!?!?
