This 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 🙂
