What do you think makes someone a good actor?
What makes someone a good singer? (beyond having a well trained, "pretty voice")</b>
Do you think the recycling of common themes and plots of Broadway shows with movies of the same title and story is leading to the decline of Broadway? (and we know that recycling is common but I'm talking about the kind where the book is the same as the movie script therefore not really changing anything and making a movie for the theater-goers.)

How do you feel about broadway bootlegs?

Good Old-Fashioned Quiz--It's OK if you don't know all the answers.
