Yes! And I think JRB's seeming resistance to tackle this kind of dark and/or challenging subject matter/plot/characters/emotions with his music is part of why none of his score have ever matched Parade. Don't get me wrong, I love most of SFANW, The Last 5 Years, and Bridges... but he seems to either find sweeping romantic things to go with his sweeping romantic music, or light funnier things to do straight forward musicalization of. I'd love to see him tackle some where this kind of juxtaposition can be utilized in his writing again.
