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.
Notre-Dame de Paris
Something I Like: I like that it gave Dannii Minogue a chance to be in a musical!
Something I Don’t Like: There’s just nothing subtle about it, neither in Riccardo Cocciante and Luc Plamondon’s score nor in the concert-style staging that seems to go part and parcel with the piece. Some of the lyrics in the English translation are lamentable.
