Theater History being made

I always think how thrilling it would it been like to experience such classics as "I Could have Danced all Night" (My Fair Lady) or "Almost Like Being in Love: (Brigadoon) in their original productions. Well I feel that I experienced such theater history while watching "The Last Ship" in its Chicago production this past summer. "The Night Pugilist Learned to Dance" was theater history being made. See this show because I predict it it will be making musical theater history when it opens this fall. I saw this show when it previewed in Chicago - It was wonderful - fantastic music and a strong story with a lot of heart highlighted by strong performances. Sure, a few things need to tightened... but if they do... this will be THE show to see this Fall.
