God Bless America

Ok. So The International Tour of West Side Story and I have called it quits. After a relationship of ups and downs we decided to go our own ways. I'll always have fond memories of the times we shared. BUT, I thank G-D to be back in the U.S.!!! You don't know how you've missed a place until you're in Beijing and they're selling you fried scorpions on a stick and eating dog...no like for real! Right now I'm home in Philly, but come Monday I'll be back pounding the pavement in NYC. If anyone has any inside info on auditions send it my way! Over and Out.

it is a pity that you didn't have a good time in Beijing, China.
i saw your performance on the first night in Beijing, perhaps it is the only night you performed in China.
i enjoy the performance quite a lot.partly because i love the show itself very much, and also because of the nice cast.
like most WEST SIDE STORY cast,the supporting performers are all strong. and Maria's performance is good though her voice is not clear enough for me.
i notice you, josh, a little tired from your vioce which makes your solo not at the prime of you as you did in LES MIZ. but you have a touching performance despite of your not at-the-top singing. i think you can feel it when you were doing curtain call. most of the audience were moved and they love your presence a lot( including me).

as for Beijing China, i hope that you don't really mean hating it. you came across someone not so nice or upsetting you, but i hope you will not conclude that is Chian all about. because it is not. China is a large and nice country, Beijing is a huge city too. so people with different reglionous and cultural back ground fills the city. and as for the Government who runs the city, they need to be tolerant towards those who are different.
and i think the horrible weather in Beijing did cause you discomfort, but Chinese are really nice people.and for us, we like your performance a lot and do hope to see you visit China again sometime.
again, i am sorry that you don't like it in China. i wish you good luck in coming audition,and my friends in US also looking forward to your new show. at last, i also hope i could be your friend in China.

I just want to say "Fantastic job at the Walnut! As Marius in Les Miz, I couldn't imagine anyone better to play the part! I will settle for nothing less now!" And it's true. Now, my standards for Marius will be ultra high, and I don't think anyone could achieve those standards unless they were you! Is there any advice you have for an aspiring young actress and singer? I am having some trouble getting "started"!

I second hannah. I saw Walnut's Les Mis twice, and was absolutely blwon away by it. You have a beautiful voice and a great emotional presense on stage. Fantastic work! Keep it up :)
