Kill, Refurb, Marry: Live Musicals in the Parks

Kill-Marry-RefurbThis month’s theme for Kill, Refurb, Marry is Live Musicals in the Parks.  I’m really not a fan of live shows.  I’m not quite sure what I don’t like exactly, but I think I just enjoy “moving” attractions more and would rather spend my time there.  But even though they aren’t my favorite, I do appreciate them and try to see each show at least once.  You have to try everything at least once, right?? Ok so here are my picks…

Kill – The American Idol Experience

Ok, this one I haven’t actually seen.  I do NOT enjoy American Idol, so I can’t imagine spending my precious park time watching a live version.  The location is prime real estate for something awesome to lived up the Studios…so come on Disney, AI is totally past it’s prime!

Refurb – Beauty and the Beast – Live On Stage

This might not be a fair assessment since I haven’t actually seen this show, but the reasons why I haven’t seen it are why I feel it needs a refurb.  Basically it’s the uncomfortable looking bleacher seats and the outdoor venue that keep me away.  Sitting on hot metal doesn’t seem like a comfortable way to spend an afternoon.  Also, I think since I’ve seen the full Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast, I don’t really feel the need to see this abbreviated version.  However if they moved it to an indoor venue (say the AI theater!) then maybe I would be more inclined to see it.

Marry – Finding Nemo – The Musical

Even though I feel this show is a bit long, it is gorgeous.  The puppetry, the music, the sets…it all works so perfectly together.  I love the story of Finding Nemo…the theme is sweet and the humor is wonderful.  To see it live on stage with those larger than life puppets is just amazing.  I have to say that crush is probably my favorite 🙂
