    Wednesdays in the middle of the day...
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Probably within the park. However there are currently no shows scheduled in the Amphitheatre for those dates.

    Supposedly taking place on the Blues Brothers Stage.

    I think I'll be able to video record all 3 events if I play my cards right. Then upload them on youtube.

    I heard something like half the cast has worked at USH at some point in the past - in either Beetlejuice or Spider-Man Rocks.

    Just letting you all know, most of those actors are going to be understudies...on the last Wicked Wednsday it's supposed to be the actual leads in the production, but that might not be the 25th...they might add another Wednsday.
