| Greatest Song of All Time From a Musical Jul 30
2020, 07:17:07 PM|
I personally am a "Finishing the Hat" fanatic. I don't know of any other song, musical theatre or otherwise, that describes so precisely what it feels like to be so passionate about something that you lose sight of everything else, and the internal conflict that comes as a result. George obsesses over painting to such a degree that, even as he laments the fact that his tunnel vision toward art drew away the woman he loved most, he can't stay upset for long and wraps him

| Disney's TANGLED on Broadway? Jul 26
2020, 02:24:58 PM|
I would have to agree that the music of Tangled, while not bad, is worse than Menken's other work, but I honestly enjoyed the new songs from the cruise ship production even less. If it ever makes its way to Broadway, I hope there would be some new, more memorable songs added to the score. Tangled as it is now simply doesn't have a Whole New World, a Let it Go, or a Part of Your World that would keep me coming back to listen to it over and over again. That being said, Tangled is o

My immediate thought was Come From Away, although I know it hasn't had that same effect on some people.

Honestly, I'm pretty much dead-set in the middle when it comes to Beetlejuice. I find parts of its score fun and enjoyable but other parts just plain annoying (read: most of what Beetlejuice himself sings). Personally, I enjoy its score a lot more than the ones from some other shows that have rece

Desiree doesn't have to be a great singer, but she has her fair share of songs, what with "The Glamorous Life," "Send in the Clowns," "You Must Meet My Wife," and the finale.

Plus, if we look at the actual makeup of Washington Heights (where I’ve lived for the past 2 years), the community tends to be made up of Black and Brown people, not White Latin Americans. So I think it’s safe to assume that the ch

I assume those were the moments taped without an audience. There is absolutely no way the applause would have died down in the two-second pause between "Alexander Hamilton" and "my name is Alexander Hamilton."

What complicates the matter a little is that being Latino is not exactly a matter of race. My great-grandparents were born and grew up in Mexico, and their families had lived in Mexico for generations prior, but to the average American person, they would look white, and one of their daughters was even born with blonde hair.
Being Latino is more of a cultural identity, one that has been lost on my family because when they moved to the U.S., they chose not to raise their childr
| Not having Betsy Struxness in the Hamilton movie does a disservice to the show Jul 7

When there are cast members who aren't the same as the ones who opened on Broadway, it's pretty clearly not the Original Broadway Cast. You could call it "the Original Broadway Cast with the exception of ensemble members Betsy Struxness and Emmy Raver-Lapman," but just saying it's the OBC point-blank is misleading.

Yeah, that makes sense, and I understand that Hamilton isn't everyone's favorite show. I was more interested to see if they would nitpick little things about this recor

I just finished watching, and I'll admit to having had high expectations, which isn't always the best idea, but in this case, those expectations were absolutely met and even surpassed. Usually, when I watch pro-shots of musicals, there's some point where I get the sense that the camera angle being shown is leaving something out that I wanted to see, but I never felt that way once during this one (Jonathan Groff's excessive spluttering is part of his charm). The audio mixing se
