Doctor Zhivago on Broadway was rather interesting — long — but indeed interesting. We are taken back to the early 1900's where there is civil unrest in Moscow and most of Russia and we see the progression over a very choppy 10 or so years of what turns into WWI. The added special effects could be drastically cut down — I feel as if they were using them mostly to show off what the “new era” of Broadway is capable of. I also don’t feel that it should have gotten so much scrutiny from the New York Times where they said “if I could start my life over I wouldn’t go to musicals like this one” I feel like these remarks are childish at most — there is an audience out there for this show however is it big enough to fill around 1600 seats 8 times a week? I guess, like in the story, we will just have to hold out and see.
