Alice Ripley, J. Robert Spencer, Jennifer Damiano, Aaron Tveit, Adam Chanler-Berat, Louis Hobson. 

Beautiful capture of the full original cast, from the orchestra. This hands down is the best capture of the original cast. This was done early in Alice's run, before she had strained her voice. Wonderful to revisit this show in all its glory! A+ Wish I Were Here is Missing from Act 2.

Pia Douwes (Diana Goodman), Thomas Borchert (Dan Goodman), Dirk Johnston (Gabe Goodman), Sabrina Weckerlin (Natalie Goodman), Dominik Hees (Henry), Ramin Dustdar (Dr. Fine/Dr. Madden)

The video is filmed from the mezzanine. There is some head obstruction in the bottom of the screen, which is filmed around effectively. The action is followed very well, using a combination of closeups and wider shots as necessary. Due to latecomers, the video starts at "Everything Else" (which will prove handy in distinguishing it from another released capture of this production, which includes "Just Another Day" but is missing the first 10 minutes of Act 2 ;)).
