So best friend Roxy had comps to Bullets Over Broadway: The Musical tonight - oh my GAWD. First of all, we had ah-mazing seats, but I was shocked at how much we enjoyed it. The reviews were less than stellar, but we both had a FANTASTIC time. Marin Amazzieng was perfection as always, Zach Braff was dead-on (and his voice was way better than I expected, too! He really gave a very solid performance), Helene Yorke was superb, and Nick Cordero EARNED that Tony nom with every second of his performance.
Meanwhile, Rocky the Musical got its closing notice a few days ago. I know I’m super biased, but I truly do believe that Rocky is a wonderful show. It has been - and is continuing to be - a SMASH in Germany, and I hope very much that it will do well on tour. Lynn and Steve deserve every success in the world. Listen to the songs “Happiness,” “Raining,” and “Keep On Standing.” They are GORGEOUS. “Patriotic” and “Fight from the Heart” (<— the song that convinced Stallone that A&F were the right people for the job - which they absolutely were) are also top-notch.
Working on Rocky will always have been super super special to me and a source of some of my favorite memories ever so far. I am grateful to the creative team and cast more than words can say <3
Now, all that being said …
