Clearly you have no real interest in art!

My brother saw this and said it sucked, don't waste your time/money.
Hi! I'm Zach. I'm 13 years old, and love the theatre. I live on the outskirts of NYC, and pop in to catch about 1 or 2 shows per month.

C H A R D O N A Y is censored by the BWW software because it picks up on the "H A R D O N".

It's always cracked me up.

In other news, when even Limelight Mike can't bothered to post the usual credits in his opening post you know the show is a bomb.

That is very funny Taz.

I also noticed no Limelight Mike this morning. These reviews should prove interesting. And have to say they posted this on their Facebook if these are actual lyrics from the show Yikes!

let the bloodbath begin.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

Since LimelightMike evidently decided not to write this... here is the show info, presented in a manner similar to what he normally would do:

Today marks the official opening night of "Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson." It launches today following previews that began October 13, 2012, at the Niel Simon Theatre. Starring Carolee Carmello, the show also features Tony-winner George Hearn, Edward Watts and Roz Ryan.

Here's how it's described: Scandalous is the new musical based on the life of Aimee Semple McPherson, the world's first media superstar evangelist, whose passion for saving souls equaled her passion for making headlines. Set in 1920's Los Angeles, holiness collides with Hollywood in the extraordinary tale of one woman's charismatic rise to fame amidst scandalous love affairs and growing controversy, inevitably ending in her much-publicized fall from grace.

AMNY is negative with one star:
http://tinyurl.com/c5k84xs


""Scandalous" is like a combination of "Leap of Faith," another musical about an evangelist, which flopped last spring, and "Chaplin," also a bland bio musical (Appropriately, Charlie Chaplin makes a cameo in "Scandalous").
...
Carolee Carmello, who has spent the past few years alternating between the tryouts of "Scandalous" and stints in "Mamma Mia!," throws all of her dramatic and vocal intensity into the role, but it is an off-putting, aggressive performance."

"Roz Ryan adds a touch of zest."

They can also use, "A few cute parodies of biblical stories are randomly also thrown in..."

OMG, that explains it. I tried to type the name of that wine in a post once and it filled it with asterisks, so I changed it to Merlot.
