such an awesome show its just black box and intimate i know when its done on a large scale 4th wall is not easily broke! But island is a beautiful show!
Looks like Disney’s smelling the Hamilton money of D+’s only ONE other breakout hit besides Baby Yoda, and may help revive the stalled “Broadcast network-live musical” craze that stalled itself out on the free networks after “Rent” pulled in low ratings.
Another helpful sign is that, unlike the networks, they’re cashing in on “Everyone who couldn’t get tickets to Hamilton”, and opting for recent hit stage musicals that HAVEN’T already had familiar hit movie/TV productions like Peter Pan or Sound of Music. Now, if we could just get them off the Ham-centric “Black musical” preoccupation, and dig up some real creative titles. (“Island”‘s a pretty good one, though, from the Schoolhouse Rock songwriter.)
