Book of Mormon

Hasa Diga Eebowai!

I know I’m behind, but believe the hype.

Friday night, my wife and I (finally) went and saw BoM. In short: It was great, but leave the kids at home. I almost got to see BoM of Broadway a few years ago when I travelled to NYC to do a series of Rig Rundowns with some Broadway shows.

 

Maybe it was because I just played in a local production of Bridges of Madison County, but I paid a bit more attention to the musical interludes this time. In Bridges we had tons of different cuts, repeats, and entirely different sections placed throughout the main numbers. We did everything from big band jazz to minimalist monophonic pieces. I’ve had a few friends do some pretty serious Broadway work and that steady, but monotonous, work seems like a pretty rewarding discipline.
