Okay, I admit, it wasn't completely miserable. I really enjoyed seeing the songs I'd only ever heard taped performed live and finally understanding how they fit into the show. "Roxie," "Razzle Dazzle" and at least one other song really were exciting. The courtroom scene was just great live. And, as near as I can tell, the audience loved it. Did anyone but me wish they were seeing Bob Fosse's real choreography and listening to real singers? It's not like it's fair to expect to see Chita Rivera and Gwen Verdon, but gosh, this was all just such a step backwards from the movie rather than forwards, and I could even see during Velma's big number that if she'd just been a better dancer it could have actually been a pretty cool scene.
At any rate, I'll try to update from La Paz, but basically it's tacos, tequila, and toasty temperatures for me for the next five days (plus night after night of Puerto Rico), so don't expect to hear much.
