land on Broadway, she became ill with bronchitis. She returned
to find she had been replaced by her understudy (Brittney

great deal of publicity. Some believe this was the intention of the
producers in order to further promote the Broadway revival's
debut.Well filmed but some generational loss. Disc also includes

This first attempt at a sequel to Annie, Annie 2: Miss Hannigan's Revenge,
opened at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in
Washington, D.C. in December 1989 to universally disastrous reviews.
Extensive reworking of the script and score proved futile, and the
project ended before officially reaching Broadway; newly surfaced video
was filmed from the balcony. Shot between heads, and the balcony
railing is visible, but not too bad-you still get a good feel for the show.
Recorded at the second night performance. Some generational loss. B

Ballroom
1991 ~ Long Beach, CA
Tyne Daly, Charles Durning
Shot from upper House left balcony. Okay video that never
gets too close to the action, but the sound is good.
However, the script is vastly rewritten and the only about a 1/3
of the original score remains, being replaced by vastly superior
songs that have character and plot relevance. That makes this a
slightly difficult watch but a very rewarding one. B

Shot from the left orchestra; only about a minute of action is
missed (when Gaston and the Beast climb the "roof" during the
final fight).Audio starts before Belle's father leaves for the fair
but filming doesn't start until after Maurice is in the castle. Lots
of ushers so about four or five coverups during the first act,
usually less than a minute long at the end of a song and nothing
major is missed.The second act is filmed better with only one
coverup during the show and one at curtain calls; good picture
and sound throughout A

Good amount of closeups and good quality filmed from the midmezzanine;
there is a railing issue for a while in Act 1 but the
taper improves; taper sometimes loses attention to the show at
times and it is a little shaky; erratic and random coverups, and
'Me', 'Gaston' and 'Be Our Guest' are all predominantly missing
and recording stopped for some time after 'Gaston', which created
a little jump in the timeline to where Maurice gets thrown
out of the tavern.Very little closeups during 'Human Again' but a
nice video of the last Broadway cast B

and close shots to match the action. Right third of stage blocked
by a head, but that rarely matters. Incredible close-ups when the
situation calls (want to read Billy's acceptance letter?). Steady
filming and very little spotlight washout. B+

Blood Brothers
1994 ~ Australia
David Soul, Delia Hannah, Stefan Dennis, Ross Girven, Tina Regtien
The first act was filmed in Melbourne, from the balcony. Decent
quality, but it follows the action loosely. The second act is choppy
bits and pieces, and was filmed in Sydney, where David Soul
took over the role of the 'Narrator.' The footage of the second
act is taken from the wings, backstage, behind the backdrops,
and the stage manager's booth. In addition to seeing the action
onstage, you see actors waiting to enter and exit, and crew
members doing quick changes, etc. About 85% of the show.Also
includes a footage from backstage interviewing cast and crew
members, a bit of rehearsal/set construction, and some footage
from outside of the theater. Also includes footage of members
from the cast rehearsing/performing at what looks to be a
church. Decent quality throughout, the audio and video are very
slightly out of sync. B

Filmed in a 16:9 ratio in a combination of wides, mediums, and
close-ups; only obstruction is a head in the very middle of the
screen and one off to the side. The head in the middle is only
visible in the very far wides, the head on the left side of the
screen is rarely ever there except for a couple of seconds at
the end of the first act; a couple of washouts and whiteouts
that occur but only really during the wides. They are randomly
dispersed so it doesn't affect the video too much. At a couple
of times the DVD is a little blurry and gets a little shaky but
other than that it is pretty good. 2 DVDs A-

half of act one is a blind-shot, so there's some wandering and
sometimes the camera is pointed too high. Hello is there, some
of Two by Two, but You and Me is audio only; Act 2 is much better

Eve Bennett-Gordon, John Cassisi
Televised version of the Broadway play by Albert Innaurato

Megan Hilty, Rachel York, Aaron Lazar, Steven Boyer, Brennan Brown,
Stephen R. Buntrock, Simon Jones, Deborah Rush, Sandra Shipley,
Megan Sikora, Clarke Thorell
Filmed from the back of the balcony. Many heads appear in the frame
to start, then when the filmer gets his bearings, the video improves
greatly. There are a few times (mostly at the beginning) when the
filmer replaces some poor video moments with still shots. These still
shots are less than 2 or 3 minutes of the entire show. Great video A

George M
9/12/70 ~ Television Production
Joel Grey, Bernadette Peters, Red Buttons, Jack Cassidy, Blythe
Danner, Nanette Fabray, Anita Gillette, Austin Pendleton

fine overall. B

Georgy
2/26/90 ~ New York
Dilys Waiting, John Castle, Stephen Elliot, Melissa Hart
A production of New York's Wing's Theatre Company.
Unfortunately, because the filmer sat so close, what is
captured is mostly close-ups of the actors legs and feet,
but after about an hour or so he moves the camera up a
little and actually captures the actor's faces but it's still
all filmed in close-ups. B-

The Gershwin's Fascinating Rhythm

Michael Berresse, Darius de Haas, Orfeh, Sara Ramirez,Adriane

Conceived by the director Mark Lamos and the musical

performances before it closed. Besides the full show, the disc
also includes two TV commercials, video of the original marquee,
and a replacement marquee; a CBS-TV review, and Michael
Berresse appearing on the NBC Morning Show. Some generational
loss-but nothing too bad. B

Chappell, Al Espinoza, Frankie R. Faison
Stephen Sondheim's one and only PLAY, co-written with George

Golda's Balcony
2007 ~ Pro-Video
Valerie Harper
Written by William Gibson. In a one-woman show with archival films
in the background, an almost unrecognizable Valerie Harper recreates
the role she took on tour. This is a taped version of the play, with no

filmed in front of a green screen with video images. This video was
released commercially and almost immediately it was pulled from
distribution, and is now out of print. A

Grand Hotel
9/2/89 ~ Boston, MA
Recording of the "final gypsy run-through" of the show in Boston
the day of opening night, and the show was very different than what
finally landed on Broadway (the opening number for example is music
only-no lyrics, but the staging is about the same so either the opening
song hadn't been written yet, or they realized they needed something
better to open the show). No zooms or close-ups after the rehearsal
and as people are getting up to leave, Tommy Tune gathers the cast onstage
in a circle for a prayer. About an hour and 50 minutes. A-

Grand Hotel
1989 ~ Boston
Liliane Montevecchi, Karen Akers, Jane Krakowski, Michael Jeter,
David Carroll,Timothy Jerome, John Wylie,Yvonne Marceaui,
Pierre DuLaine, David Jackson, Danny Strayhorn
Extremely rare video of the first preview of the Broadway tryout;
the show is very different as this is before Tommy Tune
brought in Maury Yeston to write 8 or so new songs, so there
are many scenes/songs that didn't even make it past this first
preview; slight generation loss but very good for its age B

Good copy of the Camera Three production which was severely

times which can be minimally distracting. A

Nice capture of the final show on Broadway, featuring "You're

Spencer, American Idol's Ace Young, and Helene Yorke in her
pre-Glinda days; a few blackouts, but most of them are very
short.The longest one is during the scene in Marty's bedroom,
and it lasts about 2 minutes, but the video starts again before
Freddy, My Love.The first couple minutes of each act are also
blacked out, as is the very last minute of act two; a couple of
heads in the way, which get annoying at times, but taper tried to
work around them; very slight washout, good sound with closeups
and wide shots 2 DVDs A

jumping jacks.. Alexa started her jumping jacks and her harmonica
flew up out of her pocket and without losing a beat she

Hallmark Hall Of Fame presentation; the story behind this is interesting.
"In order to make this TV production more palatable to audiences, more
than 2000 lines of dialog was cut despite the protests of Chamberlain
who played this role in the Birmingham UK production and fought to
bring the production to Broadway. The show didn't make it to Broadway,
instead he settled for this TV production." Some generational loss,
and a little on the dark side; commercials have been edited out. B

Filmed from a little left of center; clear and in focus
with very little spotlight washout and lots of zooms
and close-ups; good video, a little better than the one
disc one above; an odd thing about the 2 disc capture
is that it doesn't break after Act 1. The first disc
contains about 2 hours of the show, which is all of
Act 1 and part of Act 2. The second disc starts at
the beginning of Act 2 so there is duplication on the
second disc 2 DVDs A

"HP the Musical was written and produced in early 2009 by a
bunch of college kids/recent grads through a non-profit studentrun
theatre company.The songs were written by Darren Criss
(who plays Harry Potter) and AJ Holmes (who plays piano in the
band). The script was written by Matt Lang (who also directed
the show), Nick Lang (who assistant directed and made the
dragon puppet) and Brian Holden (who was busy working at a
real job while the rest of us were making a goofy play).The full
credits (including actor and tech credits) are at the end
of the last video. HP the Musical was a completely non-for-profit
parody show made by Potter-fans for Potter-fans. All of us
involved love the books immensely (and strongly encourage
everyone to read them if you haven't) and it is with the utmost
admiration that we celebrate and poke fun at them with this
musical adaptation. (Captured from Online Video; The DVD
Catches at the Very end)" A

very different from final Broadway show. Different lyrics and

better but not great.

Great HD capture of the much hyped Shakespeare in the Park Production.
Beautifully thought out and executed production with a few flubs and
bloopers that are hilarious; a few short parts in act one within the
first 30 minutes are shot between heads where the action at the very
lip of the stage is missed, but very few things went that far forward
and picture improves after 30 minutes when it got dark; first minute
of the show is missing; great video with HD picture and clear sound

Aynsley Bubbico, Scarlett Cherry, Deborah S. Craig, Nick Galbraith,
Katie Kern, Jen Malenke, Lesli Margherita, Vic Mazzone, Aaron Neely,
Leslie Odom, Jr., Jackie Seiden
This musical is performed as a staged concert reading. Rather than one
person per role, the concert is done with some of Broadway's best
alternating in the roles. Shot from the front of the venue. The show was
old out and everyone was literally packed in like sardines, so some head
obstructions here and there, but the taper was able to work around them
well and managed to get good coverage and close ups that made for a good capture.
Nice video A

Aynsley Bubbico, Scarlett Cherry, Deborah S. Craig, Nick Galbraith,
Katie Kern, Jen Malenke, Lesli Margherita, Vic Mazzone, Aaron Neely,
Leslie Odom, Jr., Jackie Seiden
The musical is performed as a staged concert reading. Rather than one
person per role, the concert is done with some of Broadway's best
alternating in the roles. For the second show, they had a video
screen projecting a nice wide shot of the entire show. Video is a
clear and unobstructed screen capture of the show. Tapers camera went
out during the song "Suck It", so only the first minute of this song is
captured. Picks right back up at the intro/beginning of the next song,
"With You." Otherwise a great quality capture. Good video A

Jay Johnson:The Two and Only
11/26/06 ~ Broadway
Final Performance. Filmed from second row of the mezzanine.

3/12/99 ~ Broadway

nice sound since they were so close B

Jekyll and Hyde
5/6/99 ~ 1st national U.S.Tour highlights

songs. No extreme closeups, but the quality does get better
when the camera zooms in a bit; about an hour long C

Stephen Valahovic (alt), Liz Power (alt), Shani Lynn Nielsen, David
Grimes, Ken Rush
Shot from second row front balcony by Mercat. Steady, good
zooms and closeups, nice shooting.The first two thirds are fairly
dark, last third a bit bright, and the digital zoom detracts a bit
from the extreme closeups. 2 very minor skips/blips right before
the Red Rat scene and at the very end of "Once Upon a
Dream;" first 4 minutes and curtain call are audio only A

Jekyll and Hyde
7/19/02 ~ Gainesville, FL
Christian St. John, Kristin Reardon, Kathleen Logan-French,
Jonathan Watson
Digital video. Shot from the orchestra with no obstructions.
Loads of close ups. Here is a review of this video:"This was a
regional production, not a professional cast. It was some of the
worst theatre I've ever seen. The only reason I'm putting this
out there is because it's SO DAMN FUNNY! You can actually
hear the audience laughing at some of the singing and at the
choreography used.The camera is a little shakey at a few points
because I was trying hard not to laugh myself. The singing is
absolutely horrible except for Kristin Reardon who had a beautiful
voice. People miss and forget their lines to songs and dialogue,
lighting is off cue, sets don't work, etc. A MUST HAVE for
fans of the show." A

Bea Arthur, Carol Channing, Michael Feinstein, Davis Gaines,
George Hearn, Angela Lansbury, Lorna Luft, Paul and Linda
McCartney, Liza Minnelli, Rita Moreno, Karen Morrow, Lee Roy
Reams, Leslie Uggams
Pro-shot of the 1993 tribute to Jerry Herman collects numbers
from the songwriter's Broadway shows, performed by a wide
variety of stars, many with strong ties to Herman, including
Carol Channing (the original and forever Dolly), Leslie Uggams
(Jerry's Girls), George Hearn (La Cage aux Folles), Bea Arthur
(with her trademark "Man in the Moon" from Mame), Lee Roy
Reams and Karen Morrow (An Evening with Jerry Herman),
Florence Lacey (The Grand Tour), Lorna Luft (Judy Garland's
daughter), Davis Gaines, Michael Feinstein, and Rita Moreno, all
backed by the Los Angeles Philharmonic under the baton of
Don Pippin (Herman's longtime musical director) before a live
audience at the Hollywood Bowl. Pippin leads the orchestra in
instrumental medleys of waltzes and marches, Liza Minnelli, Paul
and Linda McCartney, and Angela Lansbury offered prerecorded
greetings, and humorous moments are provided by Luft's
grouchy "Put It Back On" response to the dance team's "Take It
All Off" (the producers make it up to her later by giving her
Mack & Mabel's great ballad "Time Heals Everything").There's
also Reams's impressions of Channing, Pearl Bailey, and Louis
Armstrong performing "Hello, Dolly"; and Arthur, who explains
that Mame was not named after her character simply because
nothing would rhyme with "Vera"--though "Sondheim could have
done it." The guest of honor laughs right along with the crowd,
and then takes the stage himself for the finale--for Jerry Herman
fans, this concert is the best of times indeed A

the Legally Blonde Remix (the Irish dancing part) until when Elle
takes over the case and about 8 seconds of skipping at the very

Haven's second time as Elle and she was perky and adds funny
little quirks and ways to say lines and she just really has a great
time playing Elle; lots of the wideshots have spotlight was but
lots of closeups as well; some heads but they go away in time;

Engen (u/s Chutney/Kate)
Filmed in 16:9 widescreen, steady shots with good zooms. First
twenty minutes or so there are quite a few brief cover-ups, but
is better after that. Becky was a delight to watch -- fresh and
great energy. Gaelen is a fantastic Paulette -- very different from
Orfeh but I love her interpretation. She always has interesting
little details that makes her acting very solid. A

Pro shot, recorded through the concert's big-screen cameras
which relayed the action on stage to the massive crowd, this is a
brilliantly clear DVD with fantastic close-ups.Audio fed in from
soundboard. Humorous part at the end where the announcement
is made to the crowd about getting home, just a real juxtaposition
of the previous brilliance: "One Day More!"..."For
those heading to Chelmsford Railway station or getting a coach,
could you please leave by exit 3." Wonderfully engaging cast. A

Only audio up until Javert's entrance in Prologue. A few quick
black-outs in other places as well, namely during "At the End of
the Day" when the recorder moves closer to the stage.There is
a bit of digital static right before "Red and Black." I believe it
begins at "A ghost you say" and ends at "I've never heard him
ooh and ah." A+

Stunning quality and some of the steadiest taping I've ever seen
in a boot. Filmed by the same taper as the final Les Mis highlights.
McVey has a decent voice but cannot act. Masenheimer
has a great voice, great stage presence. Kennedy is a Fantine
whose acting surpasses her voice, which wavers on the low
notes. 1st Gen VHS to DVD conversion with Menus and
Extensive chapter selections. A

From the filmer: filmed from about ten rows back from the
stage, orchestra left.Act One is audio only until Valjean shows
up at the factory before Fantine is fired, with coverups during
part of Lovely Ladies and about half of Master of the House.
Act Two is audio only until a verse into On My Own with no
other coverups, ends right at the last note of the show; lots of
closeups although I had a bit of trouble following the show at
some times. 2 DVDs A

the Chain Gang song missing and filming starts in earnest during
Valjean on parole. Other parts missed because of evil ushers
include several random one-second cover-ups, part of the wedding

around well. A

Les Misérables: Hollywood Bowl Concert
8/9/08 ~ Los Angeles, CA
J. Mark McVey, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Lea Michele, Melora
Hardin, John Lloyd Young, Michele Maika, Michael McCormick,

This proshot from the start, in terms of being filmed from the
huge screens. It is a very nice capture and has great closeups.
Not as crystal clear as one might hope, but very enjoyable, with
only minor impurities here and there, but pretty steady; some of
the darker scenes are a little darker, but you can still see everything.

Williamson,Tom Lowe, Maddie Levy, Sage Ryan
Filmed from the back row of section H, so it gets grainy when
zoomed all the way in for closeups.There's also some audience
obstruction, especially in the first half of the first act, and a lot of
spotlight washout. Most of the action is there, however, and the
sound is excellent. First disc is all but the last 10 minutes of the
first act and the second disc is the last 10 mins of the first act
and the whole second act 2 DVDs B

Heather Headly, Jason Raize, Kevin Cahoon, John Vickery, Samuel E. Wright
Filmed two nights after the show opened. Shot from the left box
seat, making the angles extreme and blocking the upper stage
right corner.You can also see into the wings occasionally, which
can be distracting as the actors are out of character.The clarity
of a video this old is quite impressive. Perfect sound. Some spotlight
washout, but lots of close ups. If it wasn't for the angle, this
would be an almost perfect DVD. Some generational loss.A

of Vera Charles. Not bad for being about 41 years old, not perfect,
but surprisingly good. It was filmed in color. Someone along the
years has dubbed music from the show under the silent footage,
and have tried their best to sync it up with the action onstage.
It's about a half hour of musical highlights, and includes the
following musical numbers: "It's Today", "The Man In The Moon", "Mame"
(almost the complete number!), "Bosom Buddies", "That's How Young I Feel",
"If He Walked Into My Life." B-

girls, and their unflappable headmistress (played by a man in
drag), to come up with a plan to keep the shcool afloat. Using
whatever they can find at hand, the girls mount an orginal production;
a musical version of Moby Dick, featuring their headmistress
in the coveted role of Captain Ahab. A cult favorite in
London in the 1990's, Moby Dick! The Musical has been re-conceived
for an American sensibility.Warning: this is NOT your
ordinary musical version of Moby Dick, but rather a NEW US
version! What The Rocky Horror Show does to late night horror

Filmed in 16:9 widescreen. Shot during previews, so many bits of
dialogue are different from what they ended up with.This was
also before they changed the ending of Out of Control when
Stephanie got to sing that really high note at the end. But a fantastic,
great energy performance, especially from the three leads;
minor obstruction by a head, but is well shot around. Mostly
steady filming with a good mix of wide and zoomed shots.

do get a good sense of it, and it's the only recording of the

7/4/12 AND 7/5/12 ~ Provincetown, MA
Patti LuPone makes her Art House debut with Seth Rudetsky at the piano.
This show was part of a series of 10 unrehearsed shows produced and hosted by
Seth which featured him asking a series of questions of his guests (other shows
included Audra McDonald, Betty Buckley, Andrea Martin, Judy Kuhn, Alice Ripley,
and Meghan Mullally), then running to the piano to illustrate a point, or just
an excuse for the guest to sing a song. Patti had no idea what he would ask,
or what she would be asked to sing. This disc was edited from 4 shows they did together
and highlights the best of the best. Filmed using multiple cameras. A

Full stage production. Extensive generation loss but audio is still
*very* good. Shot left balcony from tripod. Mesmerizing performance
by Crawford, full coverage of Brightman's dance numbers.

Michael Crawford's final Broadway performance; shot from the
balcony, right side if you're facing the stage.The sound is good. I
also like the vivid color. Faces are not clear from a distance, but
in the close-up shots you can make out most features. Not that
you can definitely recognize anyone.There is a skip of a few
minutes at the beginning of Masquerade. I guess the video had
to be changed in the camera.At the end is the farewell from the
cast to Michael Crawford, a speech by Steve Barton and a speech by Crawford B

August 1989 ~ Los Angeles Ahmanson Theatre
Michael Crawford, Dale Kristen, Steve Barton
Slight generation wear and some spotlight washout. Nice closeups

to hear. B

The Phantom of the Opera
1990 ~ Los Angeles, CA
Michael Crawford, Mary D'Arcy, Reece Holland
This video is really rare because it's constantly mislabeled on lists.
The 1989 LA video is sometimes traded with this name on it,
and this video is sometimes traded with wrong info as well.
It's an alright video, some gen-loss and VHS lines, but worth it
for Michael Crawford and Mary D'Arcy. B

1999 highlights ~ US Tour
Ian Jon Bourg (u/s) / Brad Little, Rebecca Pitcher, Richard Todd
Adams, David Cryer, Ian Jon Bourg
A compilation highlights video of Bourg as both Phantom and M.
Andre. Brad Little is the Phantom while Bourg is Andre. Video
flickers and goes from color to black & white when Bourg is
Andre and picture is dark when he is Phantom.Very Bourgfocused,
to the point where a lot of important scenes are cut up
or seen from the sidelines. Only recommended for people familiar
with the show. Still, the only known videos of Bourg in the
American production and definitely the best quality English
audio track of him as well; only the Bourg parts B

pro-shot as you will get, as the filmers coordinated shots in
scenes with actors in separate locations; one half-minute coverup

Closing night in St. Louis. Shot from the rear orchestra so there
is a head in the way when the action takes place on the far left
of the stage; second act is a little washed out and pixelated than
I would have liked, but that's relatively minor. The first act does
not start until the new managers talk about Meg Giry in the
Hannibal scene, the second act starts towards the beginning of
Masquerade; audio only for Magical Lasso. Curtain calls were filmed. A

though image can be a little shaky at times; brief cover-ups as
the chandelier rises and during Masquerade - nothing important
missed. Contains an incredible flub - Buquet fails to appear for

Giry to threaten her daughter! Watch for Mauer's nod to
Jennifer after she gives back the ring. 2 DVDs A

The final performance of Phantom's Third National Tour, the longest
running tour in US history; first 20 minutes of the show has about 8 minutes
of scattered blackouts with the last one in the middle of Christine's
Think of Me, and then the show is intact after that; a head on either
side that blocks the far sides of the stage; they do obstruct the action
occasionally, especially in the first act, but worked around as much as
possible. Some washout here and there, but nothing terrible. Filmed with
a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups; excellent sound, Includes curtain
call and speeches by Tim Martin Gleason and Andrew Lloyd Webber.

Professionally filmed video A

Pippin (Bob Fosse's Master)
1981 ~ Hamilton, Ontario Canada
Ben Vereen,William Katt, Chita Rivera, Martha Raye
This video is very similar to the video that is commercially available.
But when you compare them side by side (which I did)
you notice subtle differences. This is a copy of Bob Fosse's own
video which he edited and returned back to the producers. It is
a bit longer than the commercial video and Fosse chose many,
many different angles, and different takes. This was his suggestion
for how the show should be edited, but most of his suggestions
were ignored. The show itself was not staged by Fosse,
but by his associate, Kathryn Doby, based on his original
Broadway staging. It is rumored that Fosse was not happy with
the video that was released, preferring this edit better, and very
unhappy that his suggestions were not utilized. Has counter
numbers along the bottom of the screen. Some generational loss. B

Pippin - Extended Edition
1981 ~ Hamilton, Ontario Canada
William Katt, Ben Vereen, Leslie Denniston, Chita Rivera,

Non-Equity tour. Filming doesn't start for the first act until "King
of Broadway" and then there are several coverups due to latecomers
and technical difficulties with the camera. Steady filming
begins in Max's office. Shakier than I would have liked and moderate
spotlight washout once in a while, also a head to shoot
around in the second act. Includes a cute ad lib in "Betrayed"
about Indiana University losing to Ohio State that day (go
Bucks!), the audience goes crazy when Jason says Indiana will

Excellent capture of this year's Hollywood Bowl production.
Three songs were cut from the production: "Never Say Good
Luck on Opening Night", "Where Did We Go Right?", and "Betrayed";
stage is filmed directly, not the screens, so the action is followed
well with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. The first minute
of the show is missing, and the next few minutes are a bit shaky
with scattered blackouts, but after "The King of Broadway" it
settles and the majority of the show is captured nicely, filmed
in 16:9, and the sound excellent; includes curtain call. 2 DVDs A

Filmed with a mix wides, mediums, and close-ups, with no blackouts
whatsoever; the stage is filmed directly, not the screens, except for
a couple times when the screens were showing different footage than
what was happening live on stage. There is some washout here and there,
especially in the wides. This was filmed on a tripod so it's fairly
steady, but it does get a big shaky or jerky in places, especially when
zoomed in. The crowd was so enthusiastic that their screams occasionally
overload the audio, but other than that, the sound is excellent. 2 DVDs A

of each act, so the picture is blurry or non-existant for a
bit, and there's one short coverup during Donkey's entrance, but
other than that everything is there. There's very little audience
obstruction and spotlight washout, and the sound is excellent
throughout. 2 DVDs A

1/1/09 ~ Broadway
Brian d'Arcy James, Sutton Foster, Christopher Sieber, Daniel

Lots of obstruction from railings and the audience worked
around as best as possible but a few times the picture is pretty
shaky or the action is blocked, especially on the far right; first
ten minutes of act one are especially shaky, obstructed, and
blacked out, but gets much better. Two short blackouts during
Let Your Freak Flag Fly, and another blackout during the wedding
scene that lasts about five minutes; mostly filmed with wides and
mediums, some washout here and there, especially in the wides,
Good sound throughout; 2 DVDs B

overpowers the sensitive microphone attached to the camera
