Anonymous asked: Why is the 1st National Tour your favorite production?

Why isn’t it yours?!

I tend to slightly prefer the company of the 1NT. It’s close between the 1st National and Broadway (which has bigger sets and a superior orchestra—I hear more mistakes on tour), but 1NT has been so consistent. The majority of the big names have been with 1NT at least briefly, from KRC, Donna, and SJB to people you don’t think of, like Annaleigh and Shoshana. There have also been some real highlights that never went to NYC, like Christina, Carmen, and Patti

I have an attachment to all the companies though. That’s the truth. LA was fantastic (Megan and Eden in their element). SF was fun. Chicago was so underrated and my local production, so it holds a place in my heart. 2NT is plucky and its actors tend to be more open to the fans. I like how their leads are often promotions. Actually, that’s something I’ve been wondering: Will the composition of 2NT change now that 1NT will not be around? Typically, people with more Broadway/Equity experience go with 1NT, while many actors on 2NT make their professional debuts with Wicked or are, as I said, promoted into the principal roles. I’d be sad to see that go. I loved seeing actors like Natalie and Christine lead a company.

I’m still hoping that the company of 1NT survives in some form, like in a future US sitdown.

Wait has it been officially confirmed that 1NT is closing? Because 1NT is one of my favorite companies and it would break my heart to see it close. I also don’t see why 1NT is closing. Wicked has a demand for both tours and 1NT goes to bigger cities/ stays longer than 2NT. 

What makes you say that there is demand for two tours? I think that they were saturating the country in a way that was not sustainable. As for the 2NT vs 1NT thing…1NT tended to get bigger cities, like it got higher profile actors. But they can bring 2NT into more theaters because of its smaller size, and it’s also cheaper to operate.
My gripe is that they didn’t wait to end the tour until its 10th anniversary.

At the very least, 1NT is going on hiatus for 6+ months <em>or</em> moving to a sit down.

By demand, I meant that Wicked is a very popular show, and there are plenty of theaters that would love to have Wicked be a part of their season (again). If anything I would have expected 2NT to close. Although I would still be upset either way. I’m just really curious as to where you are getting your information that its closing/ going on hiatus from. I mean, I’ve seen that 1NT has no planned stops after LA, but I don’t know what exactly that means. 

I edited my post after you reblogged. In addition, attendance has allegedly not been as good in certain cities Wicked has played several times, at least SF and Chicago.

I think the demand is still there, but maybe not in cities that had sit-down productions. For example it’s been to Pittsburgh 4 times, the last two within a year of each other if memory serves, and each time has been sold out or near sold out.

THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN LAST WEEK AT MY LOCAL KMART. YES, THAT IS A SEALED VHS TAPE OF JIMMY NEUTRON THE MOVIE, IN 2014, AT KMART, SITTING NEXT TO DVDS AND BLU-RAYS, PRICED AT $8.99 
To give perspective, this film was released on VHS in 2002 and has been sitting unopened in a Kmart store for 12 years, longer than children now in middle school. 
Plain proof that no one does inventory or gives a shit at any Kmart anywhere. Someone could probably live in Kmart and have no one notice. 

In 2001, I did an experiment for school about the idea of living in a big-box store like this. I selected a busy 24hr Meijer, which is a midwest-only combination of Marts both K and Wal. I entered the store on a lovely friday afternoon, and didn’t leave the store until the following sunday evening. I read the entire magazine section, played all of the demos of the games in the electronics section, and beat minesweeper on my phone innumerable times. I ate at the pizza parlour they’d just installed, and slept on the display furniture. I wandered around the racks during the day, bored out of my skull. I considered buying frozen burritos and asking one of the employees if they had a breakroom where I could microwave them, but that felt like it wouldn’t truly answer the question if someone could live in a Meijer; I’d be using resources that weren’t public.
The only time I was ever asked if I needed any help was on sunday morning around 8am, and then it was only waking me up to ask me if I was drunk and had wandered in that night and fell asleep on their displays. I said, “no, I’m fine, I’m just trying this futon.” and was left alone.
The people that work there really don’t care.

Impossible for a plain country bumpkin and a prince to join in marriage…
I’ve been listening to the new Broadway cast’s soundtrack from “Cinderella”, and Laura Osnes is fantastic as Ella.

This honestly made me tear up. Imagining how great he must have felt that his planned worked and choosing that risk paid off.
I also feel like him and the model have such good chemistry, they’re always so kind and loving to one another.

Holy shit what did he do?? That’s rad as hell!

Since the runway was going to have simulated rain, he wanted to make the outfit become colorful because of it rather than deflect it. He sewed dye into the seams and once the rain hit it the dye ran! Very simple but super effective. He was one of the two winners of that challenge.

Absolutely brilliant. Holy shit.
