I too saw the dress rehearsal and thought it was fantastic! I worried a show that poked fun at everything would simply become a two and a half hour pantomime (similar to  Spamalot) but this show has lots of heart.
If anyone has any questions, I'd be happy to answer

What did you think of Stephen and Alexia?

Stephen was hilarious as Elder McKinley. It was a much smaller role than I imagined it would be going in but he stole the scenes whenever he was onstage.

Alexia is an adorable Nabulungi (amongst the other names Cunningham gave her included Nickelodeon, Notting hill and Nala). Her Salt Lake City sounded nice however the orchestra sometimes overpowered her, something I'm sure will be worked out by opening, after-all, it was only a dress rehearsal. The reprise of Hasa Diga was a highlight for me. I'm a sucker for real tears on stage and Alexia had them!

The ensemble are all fantastic! Special mentions go to Sharon Wattis who is hilarious as Mrs Brown and the also hilarious  Olivia Phillip who gets the best lines in the show ("What the f*ck is a steak knife?")

I know this was asked earlier, but do you know who played which Elder in the ensemble?

What time do we think the queues will start today...?

I am intrigued as to how they will work the unreserved seating.

Very excited!

They have just posted on twitter that some people are queueing already.

Ridiculous!

And some info from Facebook:

1. Its general admission so seats ARE NOT pre-assigned
2. Doors open @ 7.00pm for General Admission
3. Doors open @ 6.45pm for Priority Ticket Holders

Agreed, I'm excited to see it but there are only so many hours of my life I'm prepared to waste in a queue

Stephen was brilliant! Despite McKinley being quite a small part compared to some of the others he absolutely stole the show.

Was surprised by how much I loved Alexia too (as I was indifferent about her in Les Mis compared to other performers), she was a really sweet Nabulungi.
