I saw the show last night.  Very fun and wonderful performances from everyone.  The scenic designs are cheap looking, but they were serviceable.  It was a rare treat to have a full orchestra. Megan did a terrific job and the audience loved her.  Her voice in the show is similar to the speaking voice I have heard her use in various video clips at NYCB, so she is not feigning the cute little voice.  For my money, I was blown away by the actress that played Hildy. Great voice, perfect comic timing and a charismatic stage presence.   Jackie Hoffman had some terrific, scene stealing schtick.  Go and enjoy.

 

As an aside, I saw former lead NY Times dance critic Anna Kisselgoff in the audience last night.

It's a gigantic theater.  There is no possible way they can fill the house at full price, so I'm not surprised that a signficant portion of the seats are availabe at TKTS.  I'm sure a high proportion of the seats were sold at a discount.

The second hour of NPR's On Point with Tom Ashbrook this morning will be on Seventy Years Of Broadway's 'On The Town," and will feature Ben Brantley, chief theater critic for the New York Times, Adam Green, theater critic for Vogue, contributor to The New Yorker and Vanity Fair, and son of Adolph Green, one of the original lyricists for the show, and Josh Bergasse, the choreographer. It can be heard live at 11 EST and will be archived later in the day. Go here.
 

Seventy years after its first production, “On the Town” is back on Broadway. We’ll look at the collaboration that led to the creation of this jubilant show.

Megan Fairchild is delightful in Kimberly Falker's new podcast interview all about how Fairchild got the part, the rehearsal process, and performing the show:
