I agree, VC. So many times I've thought, "I'll sit here and endure another Concert. I know all the jokes. It won't be funny." And even though I anticipate every one of the "punchlines," I find myself laughing at them.I don't know, Christian, you might enjoy it! I've seen it many times and always find it funny and delightful. I'm not the only one, either, The times when I saw it sitting in the first ring, theater left, it would be crowded with company members who weren't in it, and they would be howling with laughter!!!
Good thing that they do that so those who know it are not forced to stay 'till the end of the night waiting for a third favored one.
The Concert. Thank goodness that NYCB usually programs it at the end of a triple bill. I just leave at the 2nd intermission.
I'd rather have something -- anything -- to respond to. Give me ugly, offensive, sadistic if the only alternative is blah.
Which is worse is hard to tell, simply boring sends me to sleep or my mind wonders and I withdraw into myself, whereas ugly works puts me in a rage.
