Mama Mia! at the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, West Palm Beach, was an energizing show. The leading players did an okay job, but the biggest memory coming away from the show was the excitement.
The actor playing the role of Sam did a better job of singing than the actor in the movie. Meryl Streep, however, created a better “Donna.”
For a person who can rarely afford tickets to Broadway, let alone touring shows at the Kravis, it is considered a blessing to be able to obtain the seats for this concert at such a low price (for the Kravis). But it also helps me appreciate even more the $45 tickets to see Hairspray up the road at the Sunrise Theatre in Fort Pierce – and sit in great seats there.
I would probably go broke purchasing tickets to Jersey Boys, A Chorus Line, and South Pacific at the Kravis. And that is really quite a shame considering that it was easier for me to purchase tickets to road performances of A Chorus Line and Annie in Syracuse, NY, in the 1970s.
But alas, thanks to Jeb Bush and his worship of Saudi fiefdoms and oil, we are deprived of “common man” ticket prices. The Bush family are traitors who have done more good for the Saudi Kingdom than for American citizens whom they have thrashed with their piggish wealth and “trickle down” horse s*** ideas. And don’t forget, “Who is John Galt?” Who gives a damn?
