Welcome to Barely on Broadway, a segment where a Broadway show obsessed girl who is nowhere near being a theater critic can act like on via blogging. In this segment, I will be listening to a new show every single month (at least new to me!) and giving you, the reader, a review on it. Keep in mind, these are my opinions, and all of the shows I will mention here are worth giving a try, regardless of my own opinion! Also in these posts I will be giving you my favorite showbiz song of the month, and a show (one that I know and love) recommendation. I may even enlist the help of my Broadway loving friends, and get different opinions on one singular show. Sound interesting? Keep on reading!
The chosen challenge for this month's musical is.... TUCK EVERLASTING! You may be looking at this and thinking "I had no idea that was a musical". Low and behold, this beloved book and movie is now a show! In 2016, this show hit the Broadway stage, and was sadly closed after 39 performances. (Also, warning! Some spoilers may be ahead). Following the well-known story of Jesse Tuck and Winnie Foster, I am more than excited to dive into this musical and see what it's all about!
