The Good, The Bad and the Ugly of Musical Theatre - In Reverse Order


Um. ha? (I'm still a appalled and yet totally fascinated) Reviews are trickling in and they are, at best, just as (re-)mixed as the production. (pictures repeated below after the jump)

and finally some good news. I'm glad they sorted it out at Xanadu.

Here are the pictures from Rent remixed in London. The completely new revival of the musical Rent.

Well the cast certainly is HOT but that isn't really the main requirement here. I am just dying to HEAR the difference. Any videos anywhere?

Vance said...

Oh yeah. i should check around for videos though I find the London scene isnt as good as the Broadway scene for videos.

apparently reviews say the orchestrations are actually pretty good. just everything else is kinda horrid.

That's worthy of at least a few more "HAHAHAHA"'s, if you ask me.

I'm going to ignore the Rent news in hopes that it will go away.
