Best show ever. When Ford's Theatre did it last year (season before last), I think I was there every single week of the run. (I'm an usher, and they can usually use the help with the spring musical because it's always packed, so I only paid for one and even then it was half price in order to see a friend go on as Caesar Rodney.)
I'd have gone more than once a week, but I had other shows to see and things i was supposed to do other than hang out at 1776. It was a bit of a trip because they'd done it ten years earlier and had a few repeat cast members but all in different roles: Thomson was Caesar Rodney, Lyman Hall was Reverend Witherspoon (and understudy for Judge Wilson), Livingston was Richard Henry Lee, and McNair was Ben Franklin. It was mostly local casting, so I personally knew a bunch of people in the cast and was very familiar with the work of nearly all the rest, and it was the best spring ever getting to see everyone so frequently. I cried every time.
Ford's latest was only my fourth production. Theirs in 2003 was my first. I don't travel for it, really, but I really don't travel for much these days as I have so many priorities here. But when I have a production available, I see it a lot because it is the best show ever. (I treat Sweeney Todd the same way - very compelling cast will get me out of town for it, but when it happens locally, I'll see it as many times as I can afford because it is the best.)
