Hey...can anyone help me out? I'm looking for the sheet music for the song "What a drag", from the new show "Princesses". I'd like to sing it in lessons with my voice teacher. Any advice is appreciated!! Thanks y'all.

That'll be hard to find, unless you can contact the composer directly. Have you heard the music from this show? It's pretty awful, as was the entire production.

You'd probably have to wait a while until the show actually finds a theatre and records a cd... but yeah like BobbyBubby says you would have to contact the composer. Sorry I'm not very helpful. Good luck, though! (I liked the musical!)

Last I heard....Princesses did great in their test run at Seattle's 5th ave. Theatre...and they were aiming for a fall 2005 debut on Broadway, provided a theatre opens up. No vacancy yet I'm guessing.

I think it did great in Seattle in regards to ticket sales with most the Seattle audience hoping they'd witness another "Hairspray". Unfortunately the audience was not thrilled the day I saw the show and neither were the local critics. The shame is technically and visually the show was ready to go to Broadway however the show's content left much to be desired. The story was way too predictable and the musical numbers never soared which makes me think they'd have to rethink the whole show. Frankly I don't think it would be worth the cost or effort.

I saw the show in Ct. Thought it was good, not great. I think that with some modifications, it would work on broadway. It is certainly better than some of the recent shows that were, and some that still are, there.

Cast Recording. Seriously Ugh.

I saw it in Seattle. Besides some great performances, the show was in shambles. The score was TRL at best. The lyrics amateur, and the book was lame, predictable, and pointless. Even the set, a lame rip-off of Dreamgirls, was cheap looking. Ivey-Longs costumes were good. The direction was alright, the choreography embarrasing. This show would need an entire retool to come to Broadway and face the critics.

Indeed, the audience was expecting Hairspray, and a lot of them ate it up, but I think it was just a case of the audience willing themselves into liking something and trying hard to be part of a success story again. Every credible person I know who saw it thought it was garbage. Which it was.

It played at the Norma Terris theater, a part of the Goodspeed. And I don't think it was horrible at all. But we each have our own taste in life, and respect is important of one's opinions.

We saw 2 different productions, so it could have been good at Goodspeed and bad in Seattle. I heard better things about its first production than its second.
