Dollywood Productions Jan 2

Very odd question for the Broadway board, but yes I have seen some shows in the past (not christmas season). They're cute and entertaining, but it's definitely theme park entertainment. Their shows in the Spring (Festival of Nations) are far superior to any of their other shows. If on not mistaken, their shows during the Festival of Nations are actually tour companies and NOT actual Dollywood productions.

Michelle Pfeiffer was also in consideration for the EVITA film, but wanted production to take place in a Hollywood studio as opposed to on location filming (which was the director's preference).

David Yazbeck is a victim of the mediocre syndrome. I feel that he has written many great songs (particularly some of his work in DRS), but the majority of his music is very plain and average. Sometimes I hear his music and I know it's there. It's as if I'm not even listening to it.

HeyMrMusic, what instrument do you play? I'm a violinist (as well as a singer and pianist). I've done orchestra pits before, so I sort of have a soft spot for the under-appreciated musicians of Broadway shows/tours. I can't way to see this show at the Tennessee Theatre this spring!

I'm prepared to get slammed for this, but I couldn't even FINISH the DVD of "Sunday in the Park With George". As for boring shows that I've actually seen live, Camelot and Beauty and the Beast tie for the prize (then again, the productions I saw were TERRIBLE).
