NEW BROADWAY REVIEW - "THE OUTSIDERS"
Posted by: T.B._Admin. 09:07 pm EDT 04/11/24

James Wilson takes a look at The Outsiders at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre:

In his scathing review of The Outsiders, Francis Ford Coppola's adaptation of S.E. Hinton's best-selling novel, New York Times critic Vincent Canby described the movie as "a melodramatic kidfilm with the narrative complexity of 'The Three Bears' and a high body count," and likens it to West Side Story "with no dancing or singing." While not by any means West Side Story Jr., the new musical version of The Outsiders, which is infused with plenty of dancing and singing, at times seems to willfully double down on the correlations with its counterpart. The current show pales in comparison with its forebear, but the countless fans of the novel, as well as the countable fans of the movie, will find some nostalgic comfort revisiting familiar characters and scenes.
