Playbills For Bomb Shows, Part II

Categories: Featured, Theater

Welcome to my show-and-tell of printed proof that I've seen a whole mess of turkey trots and even kept the evidence.

This time, I'm showing the dreaded Playbills for:

Shogun, the Musical, which boasted a shipwreck and an earthquake, all inside a big bomb;

Nick & Nora, which was as much of a dog as Asta;

Into The Light, a musical about the shroud of Turin, which made me an atheist;

Singin' in the Rain, an insult to movie lovers everywhere ;

And The Capeman, a too-tasteful musical about real-life murders, though it had some musical flavor and hot performances by Marc Anthony and Ednita Nazario.

Would I watch any of these again? No way! But I'd love to have more copies of the Playbills.

I cherish my "Dance of the Vampires" Playbill.

Hmmm, three of the shows were at the Marquis theatre.

Capeman was revived in a concert version recently, but I'm not sure if it went off. Still, Paul Simon's music must be better than Bono's, llol.

The one for 'Singin' in the Rain' is so drab it pretty much blares out the lack of imagination. Just the title, no image!

The cover for Into the Light is letting you know up front 'This is going to suck.'
