re: Was. How more integrated if the 11 o'clock number refers to the main plot/character. Small change but to me impactful.

Granted... and like many things that are rendered "new" or different for the show in this production, this is a moment that on it's own is smart and interesting. But female Bobbi is NOT one of the Ladies Who Lunch. That isn't her problem. It misinforms the audience about the internal conflict Bobbi is working through. It doesn't actually make sense or resonate as true let alone EARNED when you step back and look at it. And that's one of the key issues to me... so much of what Elliott tries to impose on the text is not EARNED, and on the flip side, so many things that USED TO BE EARNED in the show as conceived/written ARE NO LONGER EARNED (like Someone Is Waiting and Marry Me A Little, as well a tons of stuff in the scenes, and plenty of other song examples I'm not taking the time to recount right now). That's one of the keys of my many issues with this production and what the show is and how it plays in that version.
