Three words: See. Jane. Run. One word review? FLOORED.
Never in my life have I ever been so amazed by a musical- especially
the debut of a locally-made one. Music? Floored. Set design? If I wasn't already floored, I would've been! Acting? WOW, the power of women. Costumes? WOW.
I can't get over the set design; the gasp that rolled through the crowd as the curtain went down was like no other sound I've heard before. I won't give the amazing set details away- you'll have to see it for yourself!
I'm so happy this is the first thing I get to review for Guillozine- I am so
blown away. It's been like an hour and I'm still buzzing from the pure jaw-dropping amazement of the first number. I'm gonna need the soundtrack on Spotify ASAP, or on a CD (I'd buy like, 100 copies).
This musical was ~*~magical~*~. I was infatuated after the opening number, and then as the show went on I fell more and more in love as each song was sang. By the end of the stunning "Girls Aren't Funny" number, I thought I was going to have to physically pick my jaw up off the floor and put my eyes back in their sockets. I had NO idea local theatre could be this mindblowing.
I said it once and I'll say it again- WOW. The power of women (young women!) and the power of local theatre.
Though I was (SPOILER WARNING) slightly disapointed that Jane didn't stay with Tarzan in the jungle, I thought it was an absolutley fabulous musical and I certainly hope to see it again (and certainly hope to see again on a bigger stage in a bigger city, maybe even winning a few Tony awards?).
