I loved Head Over Heels
Man oh man, Jekyll and Hyde is what gets me. It really isn't very well done and so many people despise it, but it's just so much fun to watch haha!
Call me crazy, but I really enjoyed Leap of Faith.
I genuinely enjoyed Alice by Heart. I get the issues, but I thought the metaphor of war = down the rabbit hole into Wonderland worked well. Looking forward to the cast album.Also, I will defend Head Over Heels with my dying breath.
I really liked Brooklyn. The score was fun and the cast sang the hell out of it. The story is utter nonsense and that's fine by me. I remember the review that said you can't leave the theater whistling the costumes, but I remember quite a few of those tunes and have used them with students for years. Now that the rights are available, I'm working on convincing people to try stage the show in my area. I'd love the music direct that score.
I really enjoyed Memphis. I know it won best musical so it may not belong here but I don't ever hear anyone on here mentioning the show and if they do its rarely positive. Wonderful score, upbeat choreography, nice story, really enjoyed it!
There are probably too many to name but what first comes to mind is The Addams Family. No it certainly was far from perfect but I found much of it enjoyable especially when Roger Reese took over.
A Bronx TaleAll Shook Up
I really liked Finding Neverland.It was my first ever Broadway musical I saw so it gets the nostalgia boost but I still listen to the OBCR every now and then. Although I saw it with Tony Yazbek and much preferred him to Matthew Morrison and his weird accent on the recording.I also enjoy The Cher Show for a fun time. Yes, I know the book is a bit of a mess but I still love it for what it is haha. And I didn't know much about Cher's story or many of her songs going in so I actually learned some stuff and found some new Cher songs I liked. TBH, I enjoyed it way more than Beetlejuice (left at intermission) and Be More Chill this season. Don't @ me (haha), but sometimes I wonder if more female-centric fluff musicals/shows get more hate than they deserve, especially compared to more male-centric/less-feminine fluff musicals. But what do I know?

I had a great time at Bullets Over Broadway and then was rather confused when the reviews came trickling in.
