Too bad its Broadway i dont live in USA, would so love to see it though.
BTW i love the fact that all the fans are so comfortable and think they know the actors so well that they can call them by nicknames! Its like they know them for real.. spooky! GOOOOOOO DAN!!

I’m reading some tweets and comments from people who saw the first show: Dan amazed everyone! :D
And Alan Rickman was there supporting him!

I saw it last night – Dan sang and danced his heart out (and his American accent is so cute!) but the show itself has not aged well. It is dated and cringe-worthy for the most part. Should be popular with tourists.
