Can I just tell you that it was THE most B-O-R-I-N-G show I have EVER seen! I kid you not. The basic story is that a bunch of dancers are auditioning to be in the chorus of a Broadway show. And that is the whole show. One big audition. So...no sets, no costumes, very few songs and very little dancing. Just lots of whiny dialogue about how each person came to be at this audition. *YAWN* OK, I will admit that the finale was good. The FINALE. Finally the big production number that they had been rehearsing...for the whole show. And they even wore glittery costumes and sang one of the two recognizable songs from the show (which they had been singing parts of during the whole "audition"). It was terrible. Madeleine didn't like it either.
As we were walking to our car, Madeleine and I were talking about this very thing. Now, we weren't being mean or overly critical, we were just saying that we didn't like the show too much. Apparently we offended a man walking ahead of us because he turned around and said, "It is the longest playing show on Broadway, you know." Well, no, I didn't know. And frankly that surprises me, but it doesn't change my opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, right? Including me. So if you've seen A Chorus Line and loved it, I'm happy for you. Apparently, you are not alone. If you've seen it and didn't like, I'm with you. And if you haven't see it, just keep in mind that this is just my opinion and I seem to be in the minority. After all, this is not the first time I haven't liked a show that everyone else loves. I really didn't like Mama Mia and I think I'm the only person on the planet who didn't like Wicked. Of course, don't just take my word for it. Madeleine didn't like it either.
