DISAGREE! As did a LOT of people who attended this stellar presentation of a GREAT AMERICAN musical. Why is it critics always have to disregard the nostalgic,sentimental,and
quaint CLASSIC as lightweight,rosecolored and a harmless diversion. THE AUDIENCE LOVED IT with standing ovations and overwhelming response. Perhaps being a professor of music does not lend itself to a great evening of laughter and smiles.....like the sour critic who was quoted as saying " I dont understand why people enjoyed themselves".???

Perhaps you might suggest "Cats" or Phantom of Opera with their one tune memorable songs. As Skitch Henderson of your modern day musicals, "you can't sing the scenery!" Everyone of those songs in "The Music Man" were familar and have lived on. I suppose you would be opposed to "Camolot" or "My Fair Lady". Every song in those musicals are still memorable. By the way I like "Candide"at the Avery Fischer Hall and never miss anything Chenoweth and LuPone are in. Your critique sounds a bit snobbish--come down off the pedestal and enjoy life!!
