It's going to be really cool to see all these classic 2nd gen artists on stage together. I can only imagine how Boa and Luna's voices would sound together, absolutely other-worldly.


Speaking of Boa, it's great to see her name in the news. Keembo has been radio silent for nearly a year now and I'm glad she's active again.

This cast is loaded with talent. It's possible to get a stage performance with a large screen in the background showing subtitles. With this technology it would be possible to bring this musical to an international audience. While that isn't likely, it is also possible to have a video of the performance, and provide subtitles with that. Basically I'm saying that I'd like to see this performance, but I'll need subtitles.
