Was the framing device of comparing this lovely musical to the republican debates really necessary? Like what did that add to your review? I mean I get it, I don't care for any of the ponies the Republicans trotted out there either, but If you want to write an opinion piece, don't do it in the arts section.
I grew up in the sixties and i loved it the first time i saw it. The show was emotionally charged with challenges of the millennial. While the challenges are different from what i may have experienced, the characters proved to me the pain is still the same.
Things move A LOT faster these days, there was a documentary put out in 1972 called Future Shock that describes the inability to keep up with life as it comes at you...We watched it in 6th grade...Didn't understand it...NOW I do...
Speaking as one of the members of the millennial generation, thank you for seeing it again. It's easy for some to forget the chaos that was post 9/11 and how fear and uncertainty seeped into everything. That is the root of this disaffected generation's discontent and it's aftermath is still affecting all of us.
Kudos to you for going back and seeing it again.
Not too sure this Early Boomer would.
Hell, I have to wonder if I'd have gone at all...unless I were being paid to do so.
Is it anything like "Rent?"

Great interview...love Ray Liotta...his time is due for Oscar recognition...Ray is frank and honest with his comments on Hollywood.
Comic books have shined a bright light on society, controversial issues and pop culture since the first pencil began its path on a sheet of paper. Amazing Stories, indeed.
Reuben was the first person I met at Cleveland State when I transferred there in 1979. He saw something in me that no one else did and he encouraged me to hone my skills as both a director and technical theater person. My greatest honor was to stage manage shows for him.
Just so everyone knows...this is a totally made-up fabricated story

I just want to say that this is one of my favorite musicals and seeing it performed with amazingly talented actors was wonderful. Dogfight is an extremely difficult show to perform. The book is not a masterpiece, but the music is. The harmonies are too die for and this group performed them wonderfully. While there were some issues with the show, mainly directing, Colton Ryan blew me away. His song 'Come Back' at the end was the best I've seen it performed. He was absolutely the stand out in the cast and I'll be the first in line for tickets when he gets to Broadway.
Carol & John's is super legit
Wow. No discussion whatsoever of the sleezy stunt Wizard World pulled to put the convention organized by a different group last year out of business? Do your homework, guys; this organization is slimier than a charter school CEO.
cant' wait, come to booth 107 and check out the Doctor Who's Fan Group!
Another important correction to this article from MOCA: The MOCA opening is 7 - 10pm, not 11:30. The 10:15pm screening of The Visitors is at capacity, but the work will be shown throughout the opening.
Important correction to this article: The Transformer Station reception this weekend is Saturday at 7:00 PM, not Friday as noted here.

I love this artist and his work! Been a huge fan for years and lucky enough to be his friend. The beauty of Andrews work is that his shapes and colors takes your eye to a new place every time you look at it! Plus his work just makes me happy.
