This is a great show, light-hearted and amusing. Ends after I have a Dream (missing curtain calls and the bonus songs). Some heads but I shot between them well, and it is mostly a steady shot. I'm not sure who is Ali.

*Master's Notes* Really sad that this fantastic show is closing, great sets and classic songs. Understudy night. Act 1 is complete, slightly shaky but nothing too bad. There are a few blackouts, mostly nothing longer than a few seconds, and some wandering during 'Being Mrs Banks' as the kid in front kept standing up. It is rather annoying to film with so many kids in the audience but I did the best I could and its mostly good and quite focused. Act 2 starts in the middle of Brimstone and Treacle (so its missing 3 minutes), but is a much better shot with few obstructions as I moved. Some wide shots for the sets and choreography, and close ups when necessary.

Good show, different sets from the Broadway version but still pretty impressive. Great cast. The first act is nearly perfectly filmed (few moments of shakiness between scenes) but unblocked and focused. The second act is missing the first 5 minutes, with some slight obstructions (a few seconds) but I shot around it well. No curtain call.

This video is filmed from the center of the theater and has many mid-stage shots (with no spotlight washout at all), so many times it feels like watching a pro-shot. Plus, there are many close-ups when necessary. Overall, a great video, specially for those who are not familiar with the show. Jason Watson is a wonderful Dan, Emma Hunton and Preston still remain as the best Natalie and Henry I've seen together and Alice's acting is insane, although her voice isn't pleasant in this one.

I think the jokes precedes the show, but surprisingly a lot of things work - the sets, the special effects, the general "comic-book" tone and a lot of the families seem to really enjoy it. Personally I think the plot and music/lyrics are mediocre. The first act is slightly shakier than usual with some head obstruction (I shot around it mostly), act 2 is better. Around 1 minute of black-out towards the start of the each act.

Filmed from the center mezzanine with mostly wide shots and medium shots, and a few close-ups. excellent sound throughout, and the color/clarity is great, with almost no spotlight washout except in a few of the wideshots. There are no heads in the way at all, but the railing blocks the very front of the stage, so some of the action that happens low at the front of the stage and on the stairs is missing. Some blackouts, but not too bad, except for the fact that there's big black out after And Then There Were None that lasts until the end of Act 1 (8 min, aproximately) A-
