^My age is none of your business, but I am within the age range that you have predicted (on the later end).
Yes I made a mistake and later fixed it. I don't understand why people keep popping up in this thread to correct me and not respond to the topic. Please don't try to derail this thread for no reason. Also, my name is not Benjamin.
The writing is incredibly disappointing. I still think that a prequel would have made better subject matter and that a better playwright could have made it a truly great play to match a truly great production.
Scarywarhol said: "They did the Color Purple revival, right? One of the very worst representations of what a production felt and sounded like in the theater.
And yet somehow won a Grammy. Yep, they took a brilliant production and sucked all of the life out of it. I wish Ghostlight would just record everything. Their records are so warm and theatrical and beautiful.
^Yeah they don't make much, but it's still really irritating that I can't add songs from any of their albums to my playlists. I also happen to find their albums to be kind of flat, lifeless, and sterile, but that's a whole different conversation.
Broadwayrox, I agree with what you're saying, but Froote has been particularly relentless with their DEH hate. There's nothing wrong with not enjoying a show, but you shouldn't go out of your way to try to put people down for enjoying it.
I think that Grey Gardens, Far From Heaven, and War Paint are all spectacular. I love to see them do Carol as a musical (with Kelli O'Hara or Laura Benanti please) and maybe It's A Wonderful Life. I look forward to whatever they produce in the future.
DEH winning would not be a farce of epic proportions. It was the best reviewed musical of the year and is by far the most financially successful. You're allowed to not like the show, but let's not forget the facts. DEH is the hot new musical and it winning should not be particularly shocking or ridiculous.
CFA winning would be a farce of epic proportions, IMO, because it really is not as well written or as well executed as it's fellow nominees. Peopl
