|As referenced below, reviewers are noting the crowd-pleasing aspects of the entertainment. It remains to be seen whether 9/11 Lite can be sold, as you note. And just who the target audience is, willing to be pleased thus. I'm the first to admit I might be overthinking the whole thing. People want nice songs, an upbeat take-away. The twin towers, tragedy and the resulting history-altering foreign policy (see 2017, first 50 days) are not the topic. Good will demonstrated via stranded people, as in a blizzard or hurricane, is old school enough, perhaps.
I can see "A big bear hug of a musical" on buses and subways.
(Full disclosure: If I personally find 9/11 inspiring a "big bear hug of a musical" slightly unseemly, I'm willing to admit that's my problem, not the show's. As a New Yorker, I was near. I witnessed firsthand untold suffering and loss. And anxiety. This isn't likely my cup of cheer, but it doesn't have to be.)
