Les Miserables, by Boublil & Shoenberg
Let's settle the question, once and for all
Wednesday, January 28, 2004
-1.0
You could debate all day about which show, Brookwood's or North Springs, was better. Obviously cast members will cast their ballot with their own show. But the answer is easily found - let's examine the facts.

Both the Brookwood and North Springs theatres are approximately the same size. Just ask the general public: North Springs has around 560 seats or so, and Brookwood is just over 500. Brookwood did 5 shows in December, each of which was COMPLETELY sold out, with 40 or so EXTRA chairs set up in the aisles and back of the theatre. Brookwood is doing an Encore production of the show this Friday and Saturday, and these shows are also sold out. Despite the fact that North Springs' cast is twice as large as Brookwoods - it's double casted - plus they are playing with an entire live orchestra which Brookwood lacks, one would expect the friends and family of the cast to fill up the theatres even faster than Brookwood's show. However, when I attended last Saturday the theatre was not even at half capacity. Doesn't that say it all?

The audience has spoken.
