I'm with you, Melismata! Some of the JCS music is really beautiful, but my word, what a boring, humorless show (so much Webber is like that! After dragging him to Phantom and Evita, I think stynxno is permanently done). I saw it on Broadway last summer- Josh Young has an amazing voice, but that was about all the show did for me.
I've tried Vegemite, but not Marmite. How is it different?
So agreed, TPS! I feel depressed after seeing JCS, and it brings back bad teenage memories of "if you're not into loud rock, you're not cool." (And count me out for Phantom, too, way too long and blah for my taste.)
