Broadway Picks - what have you seen recently?

My Spouse has recently seen Shucked and Some Like It Hot!  She loved both! 

As I've said before, I'm not much of a theater guy; I spend my entertainment dollars on live music in small clubs in NYC.  I went Friday night to see SOME LIKE IT HOT on Broadway. I thought the talent of the performers was fantastic - particularly the dancing - and there's lots of dancing in this how. Such gifted performers. I was familiar with the 1959 movie, and this adaptation made a few changes including LGBTing it up a bit. The cast of the 1959 film (Tony Curtis, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon) was all white, of course but on Broadway, both men/women end up ion interracial relationships. Very diverse cast and I appreciated that. 

All that being said, I'm still not a Broadway guy - all that over-acting to reach the balconies, the very traditional tap and other dance, etc. Very stagey. (Yes, I know.) 

Funny Girl was great

Neil Diamond was wonderful! - - but i suspect its best if you're a "baby-boomer" to really appreciate it. If my 30 yr old kids were to see it, they'd walk out during intermission

Rent (at papermill) was SOOOO disappointing....JMO

only a few more days left - 2 for 1 week:

I'm thinking The Cottage may be next on our list.
