A week after seeing ! I'm still pretty sure it's just a bad story with bad characters and rotten information flow.

You've got two people in love who don't act on it and the reason why isn't explained until Act 2. You've a character who is basically the poster boy for Jordan Peterson's incel movement and the first significant action with him is "if you kill yourself maybe we'll say nice things about you." This is from the "hero" of the musical.


The version we saw recently genderflipped Curly and Ado Annie and the move didn't add anything. In fact it made a few lines not make sense: Ado Andy talks about haging a baby. Will responds it should look like him. Doesn't work that way, folks.
