I don't want to say to much on the changes, as people might not want the spoilers.

But considering they were 15 mins late starting and the 2 stops on Wednesday night they cast and crew should be proud, they did an amazing job.

Thats fair enough, but generally how does the set and illusions compare to London as that was the best aspect?  All I keep seeing is that the show is 'amazing' (unsurprising as its mainly the fans anyway) but no one seems to specifiy anything which makes me suspicious that it is downscaled

It has been downscaled, that was to be expected, they still have a number of the light screens as per london, but the apartment scenes etc came down from above, rather than using the moving screens.

I worked out more of how the illusions were done, but that was more during to the lighting. You saw how they did the part of when Sam is shot, and also the bags etc on the subway. I knew how they did the door before.

There are a few things that I wasn't sure about (It has been a year since I last saw the London version, and I only saw it twice, so not 100% sure if they are new or not)

Few more spoilers are below (just highlight below):

There are a few wig changes - the subway ghost, and Willie Lopez. Willie Lopez has also lost his tattoos.

There are now 3 ghosts in the hospital who all share the new song - Ball of Wax has gone


I can't Breathe isn't in the show, from what I can remember it is Sam singing Here Right Now.

A few script changes.

I like her as oda may but I guess seeing the opening night and technical problems etc I think it is wrong to state to many things and judge the cast. All the cast did an amazing job.
