I apologize, but I'm kind of OCD and made a new track every time there was a change in conversation. And the audio also includes Robert Cuccioli's BC/EFA speech.

JONAH JAMESON: Kevin C. Loomis (u/s) The show was stopped briefly (about two minutes) during Act 1 because of a technical difficulty. I cut it out of the audio, which is why there is a little jump in the track "Spider-Man Flies." A couple was late returning to their seats after intermission, so Robert adlibs a little bit during "Norman Osborn 2.0." Star Wars: the Musical

[title of show] (7/6/08) Broadway
Jeff Bowen, Hunter Bell, Heidi Blickenstaff, Susan Blackwell, Larry Pressgrove
About 10 minutes of total blackouts, which is mostly a chunk in within the first 13 minutes. Despite that, a nice capture and the audience was very into the show. Good sound and closeups and good video otherwise A-

Filmed in 16:9 widescreen.with few obstructions only in the wide shots when there are two heads on either side of the frame. There is about 2 minutes of blackout when some commotion happened nearby involving an audience member taking pictures with his LCD screen on. A gut-wrenchingly sad performance where most of the cast members were in tears. A-

A good capture of the tour with all of the changes from the Broadway production. There some quick dropouts throughout the show, but most are between scenes and none last for more than 30 seconds. There is some washout here and there and a bit of obstruction in the lower left corner during the first act, but none of the action is missed. Filmed with a mix of wides, mediums, and close-ups. The sound excellent. A-
