Here are my personal reviews of all the shows currently running on Broadway:
A Little Night Music – Haven’t seen it.
The Addams Family – Haven’t seen it, but I sure hope it has at least one MC Hammer song in it.
American Idiot – Haven’t seen it, but my friend Katie saw it and said it was not very good, so I guess, depending on whether or not you trust Katie, you can, well, just make up your own mind.
Billy Elliot – Haven’t seen it, but I did see the movie, which I hated. I couldn’t understand anything they were saying until about 2/3 of the way through, but mostly it was boring dancing. I would assume the musical is similar, but maybe easier to understand?
Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson – Haven’t seen it.
Brief Encounter – Haven’t seen it.
Chicago – Haven’t seen it, but I did see the movie, AND I saw the stage production in DC about 43,000 years ago, and it was pretty good, so this one is a good bet!
Driving Miss Daisy – Haven’t seen it, nor have I seen the movie. This one’s a rental.
Fela! – Haven’t seen it, but someone from the A Quiet Place cast went and said it was incredible, but if you look up the actual definition of incredible, that could go either way.
In the Heights – Haven’t seen it.
Jersey Boys – Haven’t seen it, but I have the soundtrack on my iPod. I do love oldies. (Don’t tell my parents that they are oldies)
La Bete – Haven’t seen it.
La Cage Aux Folles – Haven’t seen it, but I saw the movie The Birdcage which was really funny. Hey, wait a minute! Why are all these shows based on movies? Hmmmm…..
The Lion King – I rest my case.
Lombardi – Haven’t seen it.
Mamma Mia! – Haven’t seen it, although I have seen both the movie and the stage show in DC, so I probably could say I have seen it and not be lying too much. So let’s just say that I’ve seen it. Here is my review: When the best part of the show is the dance party megamix at the end, your show may have a problem.
Mary Poppins – Stop it movies!
Memphis – Haven’t seen it, but at least it is not based on a movie.
The Merchant of Venice – Haven’t seen it. Who wrote it?
Million Dollar Quartet – Haven’t seen it.
Mrs. Warren’s Profession – Haven’t seen it, but it sounds dirty. Two thumbs up.
Next to Normal – Haven’t seen it.
The Phantom of the Opera – Haven’t seen it, but I saw the show in Baltimore a few years ago, and the Phantom seemed kind of wussy. Hopefully this one has a manlier Phantom.
The Pitmen Painters – Haven’t seen it.
Promises, Promises – Haven’t seen it.
Rain: A Tribute to the Beatles – Haven’t seen it. Why is it called rain? Did the Beatles write a lot of songs about the rain? It should be called Reign.
Rock of Ages – Haven’t seen it, but a bunch of people told me it was awesome.
The Scottsboro Boys – Haven’t seen it.
Time Stands Still – Haven’t seen it.
West Side Story – Haven’t seen it, but again, I saw the movie. Can we stop making shows based on movies please! Wait, the what came first? What? Well can we stop making movies based on shows then!? Actually, I like movies based on shows. Ok, carry on.
Wicked – At last! I show on Broadway that I actually saw on Broadway! Who cares that none of the same people are in it anymore and that I saw it 6 years ago?! I saw it, and here is my review! It was awesome! I had gotten the soundtrack first, but didn’t really get into it until I saw the show. After the show I was playing the soundtrack non-stop all the way back home and man, when she comes flying out on her broomstick – magical awesomeness! I highly recommend this show to anyone who likes things that are awesome! Phew!
Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown – Haven’t seen it.
