    off book. Can someone with theater experience please tell me what that refers too.thanks
    I'm no expert but I thought that meant without script, from memory. And, I believe it was Stephen Moyer who had made the comment.

    yEp, off book means you no longer need your script in front of you.
    Which is pretty crazy when an artist shows up for the first rehersal and they already have the entire 3 hr show memorized!

    That is Carrie Underwood level of perfectionism.

    Yep exactly and is why it is so silly that our weathermen have to stay on nonstop for a drizzle in the panhandle of Oklahoma and I even told the girl that lol. BUT they are already getting us because they have that huge Oklahoma map in the corner that for instance covered one lady's face the entire time that was sitting on the right side of the screen on the Today Show. It is doing nothing yet but yet they are putting that on there probably all day and night. (Thank goodness a DVD of it is coming)!!!!!!!

    Ha, ha ... There is no way she personally sewed any costumes. They were undoubtedly referring to the show where Maria sews the play clothes from the curtains.

    It was better when it was on the bottom of the screen but heaven forbid you cover up the NBC or KFOR icons.

    Oh and someone in my house reminded me they will probably also have the ribbon scrolling info on the bottom nonstop lol. They will get that info out there one way or the other (weatherman OCD lol). (I am going to kick all the family out of the house that are tormenting me about all this lol).

    Surprisingly it seemed to not be the norm it appeared. I would think they all came off book but it would appear not. I just figured all knew the script before they started rehearsals.

    As much as we focus on the haters, there's way more of a positive reaction than negative on Twitter. A lot of people seem genuinely excited in watching the special tonight. Hopefully the entire cast can deliver tonight.

    The LA Times article has the obvious answer to the people who remain so attached to the Julie Andrews cinema version that they can't accept a live staged musical revival:

    "The cries of blasphemy are even more curious given that revivals and repertory works are an integral part of the theater world. As Moyer puts it, "Nobody mentions the fact that there's been five Macbeths this year."

    I have always thought that because I think some just zero in on this handful of bad tweets and that is not an indication of the masses that probably like it. Ok, even if there were say 100 negative tweets (and some of those will probably be from people that did not even watch it) but if lets say 10 million watch it, that is just a pittance but yet people will zero in on that handful of negative like it is the whole world talking

    That is true and very interesting. People are strange in what they decide to zero in on what they don't like. I wonder if it is just because Carrie is a bigger star and they have pigeonholed her as country and Julie was so the opposite. But you made (or they made) such an interesting point.

    I never post anything on my political tweet page, except today! I posted what a wonderful family event tonight was. I'm sure I shocked my 4k followers, but not Tee...she favorited my tweet! "Always on duty" Tee is everywhere today. I am so excited, I have been listening to the soundtrack all morning. Additionally, on my other twitter account I did manage to respond to a couple of the haters. I hope they watch (don't care what they say) just makes our ratings bigger! Please watch! :-). See ya tonight sometime...#BreakALeg

    Oh good because if people prewarn these stations, it might help lol . I wish I had a way to bypass the local affiliate and just get the NBC feed lol.

    Wow, and was thinking maybe they get a little resting period early today before they start up lol. Well I guess it is better to get as much practice as possible considering really this is just the 3rd run through without starts and stops.
