It’s Double Take December at Musical Cyberspace! Every musical pretty much has something one likes and something one doesn’t in it. This month I’ll be listing one of each for a range of musicals, a different one each day.
Something I Like: I like that nothing silly happened to even further cement the already overrated reputation of this show – like winning the Pulitzer Prize. How’s that for something nice?
Something I Don’t Like: I personally find Sherman Edwards and Peter Stone’s 1776 a bit of a snooze. There is no appeal in it for me whatsoever and I don’t really like the score at all. It’s popularity has always baffled me and I’ve always thought it must be an American thing that I just didn’t get.
Feel free to share what your “double take” on 1776 in the comment box!
