Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
I can't wait until they do the figure skating version.
That looks incredibly bad. They should have gone about a billion dollars cheaper and done what theatre can do with just lighting and a few sets.
No no no! You guys, you guys, you guys, we saw this 60 Minutes segment on T.V. and it looks incredibly cool! I love it, I want it. Seriously!
I've lost so much patience with anything structured like an NPR info piece that I skipped around in the segment. Especially the parts where I have to listen to Bono and Edge being interviewed.I'm sure it would entertain me. Short attention span and all.
I saw The Lion King by the same director/designer and I have to say it was pretty amazing.I think it would be neat to see the actors flying around above the audience. Perhaps the recent preview they performed that went horribly was designed to lower expectations.Still, I have to agree with Ellis that this has all the earmarks of a colossal flop.
You have to admire the woman's comments that she loves artistically risky projects; that she loves it when people tell her, "Oh, that's a bad idea." But so much depends on the music, and what little is heard, I can't say it excited me. Still, I say it deserves to succeed and become the "Avatar" of Broadway musicals.
