And I thought people cheered on Friday night. The overture was met with a roar, and some of the applause even seemed to throw Bruiser off just a tad. Of course, every actor got an ovation from his or (mostly) her pocket of supporters, but Laura Bell's was a roar that delayed her first few notes. You have to note that this is an audience of investors, creative folks and families -- as well as Rosie O'Donnell and Kathie Lee Gifford, but the energy is amazing. Producer and L&O:SVU actor Tamara Tunie had the most interesting pre-show comment, saying she wants to see a return to the era when musicals are written for stars . . . like Laura Bell. Time for Act II, and oh, Caroline, Corbin said, "Hi."
