Brian d'Arcy James (Shrek), Sutton Foster (Fiona), Christopher Sieber, (Lord Farquaad), Daniel Breaker (Donkey), John Tartaglia (Pinocchio/Mirror/Dragon)
Lots of obstruction from railings and the audience worked around as best as possible but a few times the picture is pretty shaky or the action is blocked, especially on the far right; first ten minutes of act one are especially shaky, obstructed, and blacked out, but gets much better.

This show is LOUD and so over amped in this theater that there are times it completely overpowers the sensitive microphone attached to the camera. So when the music gets extremely loud it gets garbled due to that. Otherwise a great video.

This was a ROWDY, LOUD crowd. People leaning forward all the way blocked the far left side of the stage, but it's shot around best as possible and the bottom of the stage is blocked by some heads when action is all the way at the front - again, shot around best as possible.

Notes: Recording focuses on Toby Poole who plays Dustin in this show, When AC/DC starts the camera becomes blurry after the components enter as camera loses focus, but goes away after Purse introduces himself. Pearl, Welche Ehre has a blackout only because the recorder properly almost got spotted/caught or was getting watched by someone in the audience or an usher. Picture comes back near the end but blurry as Purse leaves, some audience blockage. Missing Megamix. Really good quality and good close-ups!

Notes: Recording focuses on Toby Poole, again. There is some audience blockage during the performance. Race 1 had to be put on hold after a technical issue happened after 'Hilf Mir Verstehn' when Control didn't speak to announce it was heat one. Adam Sheffield gets an injury or sick sometime in Race 1 as he doesn't appear a lot. Robin takes his place from Act 2 as Adam is unable to continue the show. Robin also forgets his race helmet on the Uphill Final, so races without it. Megamix missing. Really good quality and good close-ups.

Filmed during previews. This short lived musical lasted for just 5 official performances. Filmed from the orchestra section, so there are heads at the bottom of the screen. Basically the filmer just put the camcorder on their armrest, so it’s a mostly stationary full stage shot, but it’s great it was filmed at all. Some spotlight washout.

A great capture of this Neil Simon play before it goes to Broadway next year. The all-star cast fits perfectly in their respective roles, and the dry, subtle wit creates some absolutely hysterical moments. The show is very well captured with only a couple quick dropouts in the first act, and one head on the far right that’s easily worked around when necessary. There is no washout. It’s filmed in 16:9 with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. The sound is excellent and the video is very steady. Includes curtain call. 2 DVDs

A good HD capture with all things considered. This was a very small Theater and almost staged Theatre-in-the-round. Part of the railing lines the bottom of the screen for most scenes, which also can block actors far downstage left. All that considered, still a very enjoyable rare capture and performances. B+ 2 DVDs.

There are blackouts over 25 of the first 32 minutes, as well as one 5 minute blackout about halfway through; rest of the show is otherwise complete with just a few dropouts; some heads seen throughout the show, but they are worked around as much as possible. Excellent clear sound. Performed almost as a parody of itself, The Public's production of this misogynistic play subverts expectation with an all-female cast and a lot of Trump references. The cast is fantastic with Judy being the standout; when the show is stopped due to a set malfunction, she improvs for three minutes and is absolutely hysterical. B

The video is filmed from the raised section of the venue, so the view of the stage is clear and unobstructed. The action is followed very well, using a mix of closeups and wider shots as necessary, making the video great for both those unfamiliar with the show who want to get the big picture and fans interested in different cast members' performances.

Great capture of this PreBroadway production where it began in Chicago. A year and a half later this production with cast intact landed on Broadway.
