You couldn’t buy a better review for a Broadway show than the one that ran in today’s NYTimes praising the new musical “Honeymoon in Vegas,” first staged in the fall of 2013 at the Paper Mill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ.
Ben Brantley called it “a real-live, old-fashioned, deeply satisfying Broadway musical in a way few new shows are anymore.”
This is a slow time for Broadway, hence three shows closing recently and several more posting closings. If money isn’t being made during the Christmas season, less will be made during the cold iffy-weather months of January and February.
So, let’s see what the Spring (and into the fall) has to offer before the hot shows sell out.
