Avatar ImageAvanelleWood says: I would love so to see this! Good luck, Dan!Avatar ImageAvanelleWood says: Ack! and I'm first!Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: I'm still wondering how Mr. Radcliffe can have learned to dance decently enough for Broadway if he's got some sort of spatial/movement-related learning disability, as he has previously stated. Once the reviews are in, it would be a service to other people who suffer from the same disorder if he would go into greater detail how he is overcoming his limitations.Avatar ImageethanHP says: WeenyOwl, it's called dispraxia, but he said his condition is very mild. But I agree it's very admirable all he has worked to be prepared to do a musical, taking singing and dancing lessons for years, and at the same time he worked filming the HP films... He worked very hard for Equus too and he was terrific. I think he is an example for everyone, with or without limitations.Avatar ImageSrose says: I really want to see this, I hope that it is good, even if it isn't I'd still want to see it just to see Dan singing and dancing !.... @WeenyOwl, I agree about him letting us know how he overcame his spatial disabilities :)Avatar ImageGiant Squid says: Looks good!!!!Avatar ImageHPlover11 says: This show will be great!!!Go DAN!Avatar ImageEmmaline10248 says: Good luck Dan!!! it looks like it will be greatAvatar Imagebudgie says: Wow would I love to see this show!Avatar Imageazaadpotter says: Cool.

It is dated and cringe-worthy for the most part. Should be popular with tourists.
