I like the soundtrack for what it is. That said, could they have played it any safer with the song selection? I realize the biggest hits like Sweet Caroline had to be included but how can you do “Beautiful Noise” without “If You Know What I Mean” and “Home Is a Wounded Heart?”
I saw a recent understudy video of the guy doing “Longfellow Serenade” it was fantastic. Perhaps they could add it to the show? The understudy guy sounds more like Neil than Will does. Also it appears to me that the costumes on Will do not look that much like Neil’s other than they are sparkling. It does not appear will has many of Neil’s mannerisms.
I have noticed that the show’s attendance has begun to decline. It was averaging a million dollars a week. In recent weeks it’s been in the seven hundred thousand dollar range. Its grossed around 30 million between Boston and NYC.
I can’t wait to see the show but I sense it could have been a lot better. It may be time to take it on the road.
