Not So Good The Morning After
Went to see the bus-and-truck version of the new musical, "Little Women," tonight at the Pantages Theater in Hollywood.
I originally saw this show on Broadway on December 30, 2004 and just went back and read my blog entry for that night. Back then I wrote the show stood a good chance of winning the Best New Musical Tony in June, 2005.
Either I was wildly optimistic or the performance of the show on the road is a lot flatter. I could barely keep my eyes open tonight.
However, Maureen McGovern who starred in the show on Broadway and now is touring with it continues to impress. The stage lit up whenever she was on it. Too bad she isn't in about two-thirds of the show.
