Fantasia didn't show. Someone pointed out the Disney shows weren't represented. Bob Martin as Man-in-Chair was amazing and hilarious, especially when his neighbor Bob Saget stopped by to borrow the cast recording of Gypsy, failing to specify which one! It was really cool to see everyone in costume together.

Thanks--the Gypsy gag sounds very funny! Maybe it'll end up online?

Interesting about the Disney shows. More Broadway politics?
