    I agree with Tom. I wasn’t keen on the stage show, but I do like films by Jon Favreau. I’ll be keeping my eye on this one.

    I think I’m the only one here who didn’t like the show at all. Musicals just aren’t my thing!

    I saw this play too but on Broadway. Such a great show and I’m looking forward to seeing what Jon Favreau can do with it.

    Fantastic news! Have you seen the play? It’s one of the best shows I’ve ever seen (second to Le Mis of course). Thanks for the heads-up. I’m very excited.

    Jon Favreau will have a task on his hands, but I think he’ll be able to pull it off.
