first bad reviewer, the 14 year old actor kid, uhm im pretty sure that your two weeks of rehearsals spent on huge RENT-like productions was probably just spent memorizing what the actors sang and did on the broaday OBC CD not developing your own characters and style. We had only 70 hours of total rehearsal time to put this show together, 3 1/2 hours a day, five days a week, for four weeks. And to mr 'un-authentic', we were'nt trying to put on the broadway show, we were trying to put our own flair to it. I felt we put on a great performance with the cards we were dealt. If you wanted to see the actual broadway show with the same set and choreography they've used for twelve years you should buy a plane ticket and go watch the touring show at the Akasaka ACT Theater in Tokyo, Japan.
