Sex, drugs, and chorus lines.
I guess it would be hard for me to not like this show. I'm a big fan of Maupin's crazy cast of characters. I like musical theater. As a teen growing up in the age of disco, I love the 1970s. And if that weren't enough, the music is written by Jake Shears and John Garden, two of the musicians behind one of my favorite bands, The Scissor Sisters.
Sure this show may need some tweaking, tinkering, and tightening. But I agree with a lot of critics that this show is Broadway bound. Although I'm not sure how kind the critics will be once it hits the Big White Way. Let's hope New Yorkers will embrace this quintessentially quirky, San Francisco story. You can count on me for a couple of ticket purchases.
