It's funny you should post that Brody because my tailor has been saying exactly the same thing but I really don't think brown suits are in my palette and I already have several Prince-of-Wales check shirts.
BJR said: "Now, the production. Absolutely stunning."
I've seen several productions but this was by far the most memorable. I'd go so far as to say that Andrew Garfield's performance was on par with Mark Rylance in Jerusalem. Denise Gough as Harper was also extraordinary and Nathan Lane's performance as Roy Cohn brought insight into self-delusion an duplicity that I hadn't seen before.
Regarding the recent London production I couldn't make up my mind whether it was the writing or the acting but I think anyone going in expecting to see a rediscovered masterpiece will be disappointed. A period piece, yes, and an interesting one for documenting the attitudes of the time and perhaps setting where we are now in context.
That's a great analysis of Hello Dolly, PJ, none of which had occurred to me but is absolutely there. It would seem that Jerry Herman's score moves quickly to our hearts whilst leaving almost-impenetrable footprints in our mind.
