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.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
