Usually, I hear about their upcoming season in March. But, it showed up two days ago. This is a really exciting season. I was surprised the season was announced in February. What I was looking forward to in March decided to show up in February.
My Overall Season:
- Hadestown- the beginning of the season
- Ain’t too Proud: Life and Time of the Temptations
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- Mean Girls
- An Officer and a Gentleman
- Pretty Woman
- Potted Potter
- Jesus ChristSuperstar
I was surprised Hamilton showed up in the overall series and in the extras. A lot of the upcoming season belonged to the musicals that got postponed in Charlotte. A lot of Blumenthal’s touring shows belong to the musicals that got postponed during the pandemic.
Hadestown, Frozen, and Anastasia are the top shows I really wanted to see. Frozen and Anastasia got postponed due to the pandemic–so it was nice seeing the two of them back. I wanted to see Anastasia due to the five songs I fell in love with. Those particular songs made me learn more abut Ayra and Dimitri and maybe starting to love them as characters. Yes, I saw the animated film, and in my opinion believe the stage show will be better.
A number of things helped with the Frozen postponement——–from watching both animated movies, finally owning the Frozen II movie, and eventually owning the Original Broadway Soundtrack. This is something I am looking forward to- the virtual Reunion of the Original Broadway Cast of Frozen. For me, it was Frozen that left me the biggest disappointed.
I really really wanted Hadestown to come to Charlotte. this year. Turns out that it would come to Charlotte. I have been wanting to see Hadestown since it swept the Tonys. Ever since hearing it was based off of a Greek Myth made me more fascinated. I mainly listened to “Wait for Me”—-I want to be surprised by the other songs. So finally, I am having the chance to see Hadestown. Hadestown actually is the first musical of the upcoming seasons.
Of the other musicals, Wicked is the one I want to see the most. However, I wouldn’t mind if that musical got skipped. Due to already seeing it four times, skipping it wouldn’t matter.
