    i heard about this yesterday through twitter, this musical has been long coming especially with the crazy budget attached, but Carney has a pretty good fanbase which i’m sure will be willing to fill seats…myself included!
    i’m also stoked that zane and the other guys in the band will be in the pit. CONGRATS REEVE!!
