This performance is broadcasted by Sirius. And for those who don't want to subscribe, a Romanian station is also broadcasting it live. You have all the details here.

  1. Well, of course, it was fantastic. Unlike the first performance I saw, where I had only a partial view of the stage, I was able to see all the action. This made quite a difference. One misses alot if everything Angela does besides singing cannot be seen. Unlike many singers, she doesn't simply stand or sit or move around the stage in a predictable fashion simply to get from point A to Point B. Every physical action conveys the character's inner state and never seems overdone or distracting. I quite disagree with those writers who say her acting is "histrionic" or "hammy" - on the contary, much of what she does is quite subtle.

  3. Yes, I went to the stage door afterward to have a cd autographed for my sister who couldn't attend the performance (she is a big fan also!)
