Anyone who has been immersed in “Pop Culture” over the last 30+ years has seen, heard, or knows every line and sequence of the 1990 Romantic Comedy Pretty Woman starring the iconic duo of Richard Gere and Julia Roberts. The film is about a down-and-out hooker in Los Angeles trying to make ends meet until she stumbles upon the suave, debonaire businessman Edward Lewis. Directed by Gary Marshall, the film itself was supposed to represent a cautionary tale of class and prostitution, however, the Budget was raised and what came forth was a Romantic Comedy that soon became the third-highest-grossing film of the 1990s. Despite receiving mixed reviews at the Box Office, the film earned Julia Roberts a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Vivian Ward, and a Nomination for Best Actress at the Academy Awards.

Dear Readers, by now you know that one of my major pet peeves for any show is what I call “someone else’s therapy on stage”. Other people’s problems just aren’t interesting, and I don’t need to see you work through them. Such is the first issue of many I have with the new musical “Afterwords”, currently playing at the 5th Avenue Theatre. The second main issue being that the show appears to have been written with a cliché search engine.

I like musicals, in theory. I genuinely don’t like very many of them in practice. I know that the true and beautiful melding of rock and musical theatre is possible, because I have seen it. When I’m hard on musicals, I am not angry. I am disappointed. I know that musicals can be good.
