Carousel is one of those shows... I absolutely ADORE the music, but it's so frustrating to have a plot that essentially condones domestic violence. I think TLo kinda covers the WTF aspect of this in their Musical Monday review of the movie. That being said, the love of the music triumphs for me above all. "You Never Walk Alone" gives me goosebumps. Also, I saw the Lincoln Center production when I was in middle school circa 1994, with Audra McDonald as Carrie, you know, before she won like every TONY in existence.
Jacob_DanielScarlett. I've heard good things about an American in Paris. I'm also a huge Lin Manuel Miranda fan so if you can get Hamilton tix do that. My friend went this weekend by going to the box office and getting tickets from the "cancellation line" basically buying tickets from the box office if someone cancelled. She said she had to pay full price but she got to see the show. I might try and do that before it transfers and if not I'll defintely buy tickets for when it's on Broadway. I saw Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder a few months ago and it was a lot of fun. They have standing room only tickets and I got mine about 10 minutes before curtain. I use this website as a guide to what has rush/standing room/lottery http://www.playbill.com/celebritybuzz/article/broadway-rush-lottery-and-standing-room-only-policies-116003
My trip to NYC in mid-July is taking shape. So far I have tickets to see Hamilton and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the NIght Time. I have time for 2 more shows and just can't decide. We want one more musical (thinking of Fun Home; do not want to see Gigi or Finding Neverland; thinking American in Paris may not be our thing; I wish Once were still playing. I managed to miss it both in NY and SF) and one non-musical. Any suggestions?
