Wharton Center show reviews

Ok, the last year or two my wife and I have been subscribing to the Broadway series at the Wharton Center on campus to go to some of the shows.  This year I’ve decided that I’d post my thoughts on what we see, in the unlikely event that anyone out there cares what I think about the shows.

For this year, we have the following shows on slate:

  • School of Rock
  • Love Never Dies
  • Fiddler on the Roof
  • Anastasia
  • Miss Saigon
  • Hamilton

On top of that, we picked up the following other shows for this season:

  • Dustbowl Revival
  • Broadways Next Hit Musical
  • Soweto Gospel Choir
  • Ukelele Orchestra of Great Britain

Of those, a couple are shows I won’t attend, my wife is going with other people – Hamilton and Soweto Gospel Choir.  Neither of them particular interested me (I know, I’m probably the only person on the planet that doesn’t want to see Hamilton, but I have a couple of reasons why, not the least of which is that I’m not particularly a fan of spoken word as an art form, and what little I’ve seen makes me think I’d go nuts listening to a whole show of it).

None of these are shows that I’ve seen before, with the somewhat exception of Fiddler on the Roof.  For that, I’ve seen the movie version of it, sorta.  I’m pretty convinced that I’ve never seen more than the first two thirds of it.  So, it’ll be interesting to see how these turn out.
