And it's so awesome. Almost feels like a belated birthday gift! XD
Yeah, yeah...I know the musical was deeply flawed, and the lyrics ("I should be free, free to be Grace/So I can feel the wind on my face") are definitely cheesy. Plus, the Disney-style feminism is about as subtle as the Irish folk dancing. But the child in me who grew up loving Les Miserables finds that the tunes are in their turn growing on her. ^^; I regret that I never was able to see it. T_T And besides, Stephanie Block, the woman who plays Grace, has an exquisite voice. (I've heard her sarcastically compared to Celine Dion. Though they do sound superficially similar, dude, so not in the same league.) Block is currently reprising her role as Elphaba in Wicked on Broadway; I yearn to go see it again--just so I can hear her sing live.
