It's meant to be a fun and over the top Broadway hit -frankly, there's nothing wrong with the quality showmanship required for this particular musical. Almost no dialogue is merely spoken - audiences are constantly bombarded with songs that play out as if one right after the other is going to be a show stopper. It's what audiences expect. It's what has kept the otherwise unimpressive musical alive for so long. There is no Les Mis depth to keep audiences intrigued or the characterizations of Sweeney Todd to pull people to one character's defense over the other. (more...)
