I would love to know this too. I saw the show on Tuesday evening and cannot remember.
Here comes my brief review!!
Well the cast is great! I would love to know which child actor we had - is there any way of finding out? I think Nicholas Colicos, Ray Shell and David Page were off who were three of the 4 people I really wanted to see but it didn't spoil it too much.
As I said, the cast was fab. I loved Debbie. Lloyd is gorgeous. Heather was very good.
There was a sound problem (feedback) right at the start and Heather rolled her microphone off the stage - it was sorted for the second half of the song. There was also a technical fault half way through Act One just before the club scene - no explanation but ten or so minutes later it started up again where we left off.
Set was good, if bare. Why do the lights show 4 panes of glass when one of the French Doors is wide open??
Song list was slightly too ballad heavy for my liking and at some points it dragged.
Here come the negatives:
The projections - lose them! Unnecessary and tacky. After the last one I felt it hard to suppress my laughter at the audience's gasps at Rachel's costume change. The chase after the stalker in the cabin could easily be done in person.
The bows were awkward and sudden. Bring them on to a medley - So Emotional (don't mention the rap), How Will I Know and I Wanna Dance With Somebody are crying out to be mixed together. Don't just make them walk on and bow after a far too sudden ending.
Was Heather's final dress a Whitney or a buttercup tribute??
Most of the audience were clearly only there to see a certain song or two.
All in all, a good show which could be much slicker without the projections and the awkward Curtain Call. 6.5 out of 10 - mainly for the great cast.

How very odd, Ray Shell and David Page were both performing on Tuesday night, sure you saw the bodyguard?
