Options Acid Jazz Hands with Bronwyn Bishop: Playlist from October 16, 2020 Options

Bronwyn Bishop's avatar View Bronwyn Bishop's profile Options

Musical theater from off the beaten path. Obscure and unusual show tunes from within the canon and without, flops, failures, and the newest works from up-and-coming artists—plus tried-and-true hits. Also, occasional appearances from songs that are not show tunes (but only if they go really well with show tunes).

Hello ladies and those who are ready to hear what they have made for us.

Hi Bronwyn, looking forward to the show, should be fun!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:08pm Bronwyn Bishop:

Hey WR and doctorjazz :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:20pm WR:

Do I remember you saying Hadestown is, erm, you're not a fan? If i am remembering correctly, can you explain a bit?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:26pm Bronwyn Bishop:

I liked the production and the performances a lot (Rachel Chavkin, the director, is a genius and the set was amazing) but the songs weren't my favorite. I think Anais Mitchell is a great composer, but her lyrics, while fine for a folk album (which is what the show originally was), are not my favorite because of their vagueness and lack of traditional "craft" elements like true rhymes

Here's my review of Hadestown if you want more of my thoughts: acidjazzhands.com...

Nice web site, hope you have time in future to write more essays and reviews.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:37pm Bronwyn Bishop:

thank you! i will write more reviews when theatre is back :D
Avatar 🎭 Swag For Life Member 7:43pm WR:

Unfortunately I think you will be able to use that reason for another 6 months to a year or more, if you mean theatre as in audience in seats and audience on stage in the same room.

Last weekend I watched a concert series where limited # of expensive tickets for attending in person and 15 bucks a night for remote. They used Boxcast.
