Dark & ironic musicals. We've had a few since The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, but I really think it's a terrible combination.

The word went out that after 9/11 Hollywood would turn away from irony. Unfortunately, they did so for only about two weeks, before it was back to the old postmodernist stand.

How about we have some real heroes and heroines? Some good guys winning and getting married at the end? Evil villains defeated? Harmony, clarity, and good time had by all. A few sad songs can come in the middle, when things look dark, but not at the end, please.

"'Lestat's' contribution to art and equality is demonstrating that a gay vampire with a two-octave range can be just as dull as a straight one."

Once again, the Arts serve up a steaming bowl of perversion, and wonder why they can't even get artsy gothics to attend. (That, and the show certainly stunk as well.)
