|Word Of Warning About the Show Itself on Mar 24, 2007 @ 02:14 pm|
This is the ballet, no? One of my friends went to a NYC showing this week. Caution: she hated it and, from the strong language she used when describing it, I postulate that if she could have used Edward's scissorhands to poke out her eyes so she wouldn't have to see what was going on onstage, she would have.

They do have a show in Brooklyn, but I'm not sure this is a ballet though it is supposed to be a play, done without words. Here's their blurb:
"...a perfect blend of witty movement and wordless scenario." -- The New York Times
"...a visually stunning live show.." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer
"...a cut above the musical norm." -- San Francisco Chronicle
"...a cracking piece of theatre." -- The Guardian
Based on the original motion picture directed by Tim Burton, Edward Scissorhands features a cast of 30 dancers with music composed, arranged and adapted by Terry Davies, based on the original motion picture score by Danny Elfman.
Edward Scissorhands is devised, directed and choreographed by Matthew Bourne (Swan Lake, Mary Poppins), the only British director to have won the Tony Award for both "Best Choreographer" and "Best Director of a Musical."

We really liked it! It was very well done. There are no words and yes it is dancing so it's the same one that ItsAMonkey's friend saw. Honestly I was nervous after I read that because I thought - crap! I'm going to hate it and what will I say about it, but I really really enjoyed it. I thought the scenery costumes, music and performances were all amazing. In general, I tend to prefer words/dialogue, but this was so, so well done, it was hardly missing. Just don't compare it to the movie - it wouldn't be fair. This is a totally different kind of experience, but I thought it was really well done and even Alex liked it and he generally doesn't like theatre, dance, opera, musicals, etc.
