BWW Review: BLISS at the 5th Avenue Theatre Misses the Mark, But Only SlightlyBWW Review: BLISS at the 5th Avenue Theatre Misses the Mark, But Only Slightly
February 15, 2020

Dear Readers, you may recall that several years ago there was a new musical that came through town, about Princesses (even called that), that many consider, including myself, to be one of the worst things they've ever seen. But as bad as it was, it had three things going for it. First, there was a story built around a Father's love for his daughter. Second, there was a hunky boy-band type, who may have creeped many out with his utterly rapey song a?oeJust Say Yesa??, but he was still pretty. And third, and most importantly, the show featured one truly great song that spotlighted the quirkier and subordinate a?oePrincessesa?? of the bunch. Cut to 2020 and enter the 5th Avenue Theatre's latest new musical venture, a?oeBlissa?? that, while having no real connection to that other one, blissfully and coincidentally contains those three elements and runs with them, while tossing the rest of that dreadful show into the infernos of musical theater hell (along with the likes of a?oeFlashdancea?? and a?oeLove Never Diesa??). And while a?oeBlissa?? may still have some work to do to make it truly shine (which we'll get to in a minute), it's still a delightfully fun romp into the woods with some Princess archetypes who aren't the norm but should be.

Buddies in Bad Times Theatre presents
BLISS
By Olivier Choinère
Translated by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Steven McCarthy

Céline Dion speaks through an Oracle to a group of cashiers at a Wal-Mart. She takes us on a journey from her triumphant farewell concert to the bedroom of her number one fan, who has spent most of her life chained to the bed by her family. Our insatiable appetite for celebrity is the topic of this darkly surrealistic play by Québécois dramatist Olivier Choinière. Buddies is thrilled to present the professional English Canadian premiere of this internationally acclaimed play, in a translation by Caryl Churchill. photo by Tanja-Tiziana
