For those of you who actually like to see ABRIDGES on Broadway Abridged...

| 2 Comments
The past two weeks I've seen "Legally Blonde" and "LoveMusik". Both of which have a draft of an abridge written already, and both of which I'll post after opening night.

I wait until opening night for three reasons:
  1. Just as newspaper reviews don't come out till opening night, I would prefer to not post my "version" of a review till then. It's fair.
  2. A lot changes during previews.LoveMusik may end up being a good example of this, and I'm waiting to hear from the message board folks how the show fixes up over the course of previews.
  3. A lot of the reviews for a show give me ideas of last-minute jokes I add to the abridges. Forbidden Broadway's Gerard Alessandrini says that sometimes, entire parodies he writes are just reformulations of a nasty Ben Brantley review. I liked that idea, so I promptly stole it.
It's insane how there was so little to see September through February, and suddenly March and April come around and I have a good ten things I want to see.

And dammit, the reviews were tepid; why can't I see Curtains for cheap SOMEHOW?

Curtains (along with pretty much EVERYTHING) was on TKTS when I walked by shortly before matinee time last Wednesday.
Oh to have off on Wednesdays and be able to take advantage of Matinees...Although:http://www.entertainment-link.com/tkts.aspSeems to be on TKTS often enough...
