Is Harvey getting pressured to suddenly write straight drag queens for a paycheck?
Didn't they learn from PRISCILLA?
This musical won't be around long enough to make it worth being concerned about.
Harvey wrote the book for the uber-straight Newsies. Maybe he's caught the hetero bug.
The show was great fun, I went Sunday To the night preview.
I saw Cyndi and Harvey.
Packed theater and great show. It was better than the movie. Music made the show happen! Very 80s, in a good way.
"Gayer than a two dollar bill"?
Probably a hit but a runner-up to Matilda, though Billy Porter could cop the Tony.
I liked some of the music, but despised Billy Porter's performance. He was over the top, and not in a good way.
Billy did chew the scenery. Needs to reel it in a bit.
Great voices in the cast, amazing.
Transparent attempt at creating buzz
I would agree with you r13, but did that storyline help Priscilla? Why would Fierstein push that narrative?
R12, "Chew the scenery"? Really? Are you living in the 50s writing reviews for the Ladies Home Journal?
What was your review, then, r15? Other than reviewing other reviews that is.
Doesn't seem like an attempt to create buzz.
Seems like they genuinely have differing views on the character and were cornered into admitting that.
Not a fan of the show, but I had to chuckle at Musto's article when he says Feirstein introduced Cyndi Lauper as "my daughter, Christina Crawford."
