Fret not for the Broadway season of new musicals, dear friends. Even if, as rumors have it, a summer (post-Tony) opening is announced for Hamilton, all is not lost for this season of Broadway musicals. As a matter of fact, I find shocking the characterizations of the musical season as "weak" and "anemic" this early on.
We have had three musical openings already, only one of which was truly slammed. The Last Ship disappointed at the box office, but not many thought it was a completely failed effort. And then there is Honeymoon in Vegas, which wasn't universally loved, but received some pretty amazing reviews.
