When it opened in New York two years ago, a combination of timing and casting made "Thoroughly Modern Millie" an unlikely Broadway hit. The city was reeling from the events of the previous September, and instead of spurning a musical based on a 35-year-old Julie Andrews movie, weary theatergoers welcomed it as a bright, optimistic show about making it in Manhattan.

Jack O'Brien, the longtime artistic director of San Diego's Old Globe, has made quite a specialty out of recycling Hollywood films into big-budget stage musicals ("Hairspray," "The Full Monty"). Based on a 1988 film starring Michael Caine and Steve Martin, "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels" is another O'Brien-helmed enterprise that, after premiering at the Globe in 2004, has gone on to a successful Broadway run.

"Sister Act" has been on quite the pilgrimage since its world premiere at the Pasadena Playhouse in 2006.

" Those soulful (in the R&B sense) nuns have returned to Los Angeles in this touring Broadway production, which opened Tuesday at the Pantages Theatre.

It's almost frightening to see how efficiently "Les Miserables" has been replicated for the West Coast at the Shubert Theatre. After nine other productions, the Cameron Mackintosh Organization has indeed got it down to a science. There had been a problem with the show's turntable, but everything went right Wednesday night. The barricade glided together like a giant Tinkertoy. The sound system zapped the slightest lyric to the back of the house, with only little less presence than a recording.
