To celebrate this special anniversary I thought it would be appropriate to feature something new from each of the three productions so far.

and the second from opening night;
KSDK have posted a video preview here which includes interviews with the cast and more footage from the show's opening night.
And the reviews are also starting to come in. Harry Hamm for CBS St. Louis gave the show 5 stars. He's done a short audio review for the show (which you can listen to here), calling it "an immensely entertaining, funny, clever, hip show" and a more detailed written review which can be found here. St. L Today gives a slightly more mixed review, citing problems with the staging of A Whole New World and a lull in the first act, but still calls the show "beautifully staged, performed with vigor and bursting with surprises". And I'm sure there will be more reviews coming in over the next few days.
I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank once again everyone who's helped and supported me with this blog over the last year, especially the staff at both 5th Avenue and the Tuacahn, and the cast of the original production who generously gave me so much of their time and allowed me to have exclusive content on this blog. THANK YOU!
