Little Women

Cheap Tickets: $30 rush

I don't know.... there's just something about Little Women that seems so... empty. Like I'm waiting for it to break out into full emotion, or a real exploding number or something. Sutton Foster does a good job considering the awkward material that seems to rush through the novel all too quickly (same overall issue as Dracula; too much crammed in). I personally happen to especially like Danny Gurwin, who really brought his character to life. But really... articles on Playbill and articles in New York Metro and then this one make me wonder. Another case of some producers taking something with promise and killing its heart.?

Anyway. I usually write what's "coming soon" here... and sometimes, I'm actually right. Over the course of the next month, expect abridges for Spamalot and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Both have good Buzz, so we'll see. I'm looking forward to both of them; word is that the Tonys will be a showdown between the two... and if the buzz about Spamalot is right, then poor David Yazbek... sigh.
