What would they do if MELISSA couldn't perform some night???

I would die if it was when I was there to see her! thud

There are 2 or 3 women who are her understudies......Yes, it would be sad if you went just to see her and she wasn't there....a month or so ago, she was in the hospital....probably exhausted from all the performances....

Oh you're kidding??? I hadn't heard about that!

Yeah, doing a musical has to be extremely trying. I feel badly for the people who went thinking they were going to see MG and then seeing her understudy. I would have been devastated. Hopefully you and Marilyn will get to see Melissa, Gin! pray

Being an understudy to the star must be a thankless job, especially when they announce that you'll be filling in and a loud, disappointed "Awwww!" goes through the house.

No kidding....but oh to be the one in her shadow. I will just be saying a little prayer that Melissa will not be exhausted when I get to see her.

You talked about how MG was the only one left on stage at the end.....she did this as well.....and I do not know if it was my imagination or what, but as she was standing there, soaking it all in, she stretched her arms upwards, looking upwards as well, brought her hands to her mouth, gave a kiss and then hands went upwards again.....my thoughts on this.....I think she was thanking Michael Landon for giving her the opportunity to play Laura while she was growing up and helping her to be the actress she is......it was emotional to watch her do that....

Now, I get to see it tomorrow at 2:00pm, and catch all the things I missed out on last night....

Melissa has arrived in Toronto and was on a talk show last night. She mentioned that at the end of the show she sends a kiss up to "my Pa". What a sweet thing to do. I am looking forward to the show on Friday night. I have 2 seats in the 2nd row and 3 in the 3rd. Will let you know about my experiences after I come down out of the clouds!

Actually no. I have 2 sisters who are coming from a neighbouring town who will have the seats in row 2. My mom, my friend and I will be in row 3. I just hope that we are somewhere close together.

Row 3 will still be an amazing place to sit. Up close and personal. You'll feel like your practically on-stage with Melissa.

Oh my gosh, the musical was amazing. I was about 15 ft away from MG! I was starstruck. The show itself was truly beautiful. I was amazed at all the images those 4 walls could create. The cast did such a great job and the music was wonderful. I am praying that they eventually release a sound track. I'll be the first one in line to buy it.

I hadn't thought of the soundtrack! That would be a nice thing to collect. Might need Beth to put a bug in Melissa's ear about that.

Me too!! Oh, I wish!! pray Isn't it amazing how catchy all those tunes were, when you haven't even heard them before??? Sometimes it's hard for me to like a 'new' musical because it's tough for me to embrace the unknown music. But this music was really fantastic. yes

Well, I'm not front row, but I'm going with my neighbor that said where we will be sitting you are better able to see everything. She recently went to Mary Poppins, sat real close and it was hard to see all that was going on. The seats are up high enough you don't have to look around anyone. I should be fine, can't take pictures...but if I could I would have my 300 mm lens ready to go!!
Now just need to pray Melissa isn't sick or something. That is my biggest fear!

In Toronto Melissa would do the evening performances and her understudy would do the matinees. That way Melissa's back wouldn't hurt as much. She was WONDERFUL!!!
Kara Lindsay (Laura) has had to leave the show, not sure why. She was great too, I thought she was funny, the way she gave her lines, kinda sarcastically. I am sure that her understudy does just as well.
As for the soundtrack, many people have asked for it and they are thinking of making one but when I asked, they said that it was hard to get all of the original actors at one show to take it. I can understand that, with MG and Kara and others getting days off and being ill or other reasons. I just hope that they can arrange it and get her done, cause I and many others will be in line to buy a copy.

Well, I talked to a manager at the Houston Theatre and he says Melissa is of right now down for every performance. SO, thats a relief. I won't feel better til I see her on stage though. Come on May 1st!!!
