Emma - I'm Intrigued

The 2009-10 Mirvish Season

The 2009-10 Mirvish Theatres subscription season was announced and the feature shows are:
  1. Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, The Musical
  2. The Harder they Come
  3. Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Court
  4. Fiddler on the Roof
  5. Little House on the Prairie, The Musical
  6. Stuff Happens
  7. Mel Brooks, Young Frankenstein

All in all, a pretty decent offering. I'll definitely want to see Priscilla, that should be great as a musical but srsly, Little House on the Prairie as a musical o_O Young Frankenstein may be mildly amusing. I've never seen Fiddler on the Roof but it comes highly recommended from the boys across the hall (*snicker*) so that will probably be a go. Haven't got a clue what The Harder they Come is about so I'll pass on that one and ditto for Stuff Happens which is about the Bush administration (come to think of it, based on content, that has the potential to be the best comedy ever *LOL*). As for Joseph, well, you know my sentiments towards Andrew Lloyd Webber - he set the bar with his first musical and it just went downhill after that. I can't believe it has been over a year now since I last saw JCS live - that is sort of a record for me. Oh well, Joseph it is then. Can I put in a request for 2010-11 season? JCS (of course),  Brigadoon, a double bill of sorts  - Wicked and The Wiz, and for the drama, how about Madame de Sade, and, The History Boys. Last but not least, a comedy - Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead - should round out the season quite nicely.
