Musically speaking, I liked the medley. And I was thrilled to see Ali Stroker win, and her acceptance speech was very moving.
But - by the end of the title song, my reaction was precisely the same as it was when they did the Come From Away opening number on the Tonys a few years ago - why are these people so f-ing ANGRY??? And why do they seem so angry AT the audience? I still don't understand why there was no welcome (at least in my perception) in "Welcome To The Rock," and I certainly don't see what makes "Oklahoma" an angry song.
