Michael - In a way I agree with the post above. I love watching Brooks, and Beth, and Chris - but the show seemed to be very self conscious about its fakey over the top show biz people - I know this is supposed to be satire - but satire is smarter than this - and comedy is funnier. The score isn't much to write home about, and IMHO Act 2 keeps stopping dead for what feel like Act 1 songs. And then there is the - for me - totally cringeworthy number 'Love They Neighbor.'
A gay Broadway musical theatre star and his cohorts popping down to a flyover town to get a Lesbian couple into their Prom, doesn't, to me , a compelling story make.
In the flawed, but moving, EVERYBODY'S TALKING ABOUT JAMIE in London, there is a drag queen who helps the lad who wants to go to prom in a dress get courage - buts its the bravery of a whole bunch of straight adults - and kids 0 that resolve this plot.
I'm happy that many people enjoy this show; its unfortunate that its run does not look like it will be charmed or long. But the whole show seemed very pleased with itself, from page one.
