I've fallen in love with this show. I loved the show long before I saw Bogart's version, but the show has haunted me ever since I saw it. I can't get Amanda's version of "Don't Care Much" out of my head. The girl next to me in the audience, who I later befriended, held my hand while she cried when Amanda sang it. I got chills at the end of "If you could see her through my eyes". Aly Trasher's sob in the middle of "Cabaret" hit me in the gut. And every time Cliff delivers his last lines, even after 3 viewings, I still start to cry. The show is beautiful and I've been telling everyone close to me to see it. It really affected me after the worst 6 months of my life. The show brought up every emotion and every memory of those I've lost and those that have been hurt in my life the past two seasons. It left me a wreck the first time I saw it, but I needed that. It seemed to affect people in different ways based on what they had been through in life. It brought up the range of emotions, good and bad. The worst parts of my life were still raw, so it left me raw.
Apart from the emotional impact, it was also inspiring to see the show. I feel like artists have to see a show like this early in their career to make them aware of what art can do and how powerful it can be. More importantly, what experimenting and taking risks can do. I saw a mini-evolution of the show in 1 week from the last dress rehearsal to the first Friday performance. Each viewing was different for me. The actors explored their characters in different ways, changing from one show to the next. The staging and cues explored the space of the club differently throughout. Different parts of the show were highlighted each night. I feel very lucky to have seen some of this experimentation in action. Each choice worked, but it worked differently. I loved seeing those changes and their effects.
Anyway, rambling.
I loved the show. I can't wait until the last week of the run when I get to see it again.
Thank you <3

Haha thanks. I'm actually an aspiring writer. The show affected me a LOT. I loved it and can't wait for closing week when I'll be seeing it a couple more times. Also, I saw you at some of the shows in the audience! I wanted to say hi but I didn't know how to say, "Hi, I've seen you post things online," without sounding awkward or creepy!
