I saw EVITA
on Broadway last night. I am not really a big show fan, and I was at this particular show because I allowed myself to be looped into it (theoretically I didn't pay for the tix
). I am not familiar with EVITA
... I only know that one song "Don't Cry For Me Argentina'
(y'know when I left last night I said to one of my friends that if I heard "Argentina" - the word - one more time I was going to hurl).
Now I know why that song is the only song from that show I know. IT'S BECAUSE IT'S THE ONLY SONG IN THE SHOW!!!
Beautifully produced, well acted, the lead was tiny with a shrill voice but likeable, even RICKY MARTIN
was tolerable... the show... that show... so ham-handed - and I mean the book and music - why was this show so popular originally? It's POINTLESS. BOE
