Transport Group presents a revitalized version of the musical tale of Margaret “Molly” Brown.
From the show:
This is Molly as she really was: vibrant, progressive, and ready to fight for the underdog as a champion of women’s rights, labor rights, and immigration reform. Transport Group’s production, starring Beth Malone, marks this show’s off-Broadway debut, and the first production in New York since its Broadway premiere in 1960.
See it if 95% and 87%. Great talent esp .Beth Malone &David A. Damane. Other 14 were almost as talented. Story had to be retold. 25 delightful songs
Don't see it if Leg room in theaters of yore need work. Missed the emphasis on the Titanic and the rowboat scene (seems to be diluted.) ALSO
See it if you like earlier style musicals - this one updated with great costumes and choreography, a talented, energetic cast and a good orchestra.
Don't see it if you expect the happy-go-lucky film version - here the story is adapted to real life with additional songs and adapted music. Long first act.
See it if you're a fan of the original, curious about a new version, fan of Beth Malone or director Marshall, interested in story of Molly & Titanic
Don't see it if not a fan of traditional style musicals or big musicals adapted for a smaller stage, want biographical shows to adhere closely to truth
See it if you want a fantastic evening of musical theater! The amazing performers act, dance, sing & move furniture with grace. The costumes delight.
Don't see it if you hate the long trip to the lower east side. Other then that you'd be missing a great performance.
See it if Kathleen Marshall provides charming choreo; Malone acts/sings/dances up a storm; pro-immigration message gives middle finger 2 Donald T
Don't see it if cornball; not enough great tunes; tho revamped as feminist, Molly remains cartoon saint; missing sizzle & polish of Bdway production
See it if you’re looking for a classic show that’s also relevant. Themes of female empowerment, immigration, workers’ rights, and class.
Don't see it if you don’t like old-fashioned musicals, or you’re wanting to see a Titanic story (it’s not).
See it if You want to see this rarely-staged classic gem in a Broadway-caliber production (save the sets) w/ a refreshing new book & 2 stunning leads.
Don't see it if You dislike uplifting American classics like The Music Man, Bells Are Ringing, The King and I, Wonderful Town, etc.
See it if you enjoy a very cleverly revived musical. Bravura performance by Beth Malone and David Aron Damane. Wonderful singing and acting.
Don't see it if you don't like any changes to lyrics in musicals.
See it if Super talented Broadway cast play multiple roles in this fun musical adaptation. Adventures include finding gold, heading to Denver etc.
Don't see it if You don't like large cast musicals that are Broadway quality. You don't like modern themes injected into the original musical. High energy!
See it if you want to see a revisal of this classic musical. It takes the original in a new direction, maybe for the better, maybe for the worse.
Don't see it if If you do not like musical theatre classics or revisals.
See it if Want “old-fashioned” musical helmed and played by Bdwy stalwarts. Score not memorable but engaging. Good, fun theater.
Don't see it if Revs to orig script are better but still not great. Songs not organically meshed to story. Staging good on inadequate set. Still, go.
See it if want 2 feel sense of joy from BWY musical, appreciate effort 2 make it better, like traditional Bway musical tropes, 2 leave feeling better
Don't see it if dislike BWY musical form, think that historical figures aren't worth musicalization except 4 HAMILTON, need your life 2 parade on stage B4 U
See it if An enterprising character & script campaigning for democratic causes pioneered ~1900 that continue today. A LOT of story unspooling quickly.
Don't see it if This musical is rooted in the same time that produced Hello, Dolly! There’s a blitheness & innocence in the show’s dna that maybe doesn’t...
See it if Large, high energy cast led by an excellent Beth Malone in a tuneful Meredith Willson musical with lively Kathleen Marshall choreography.
Don't see it if Beth's Molly is an all-out feminist but some of the themes that interested me, may not appeal to Gen-Xers -- like unions and social standing
See it if You are interested in this icon of turn of the century US. Vastly different Molly-suffragette, union advocate,social reformer.
Don't see it if You dont like overmic'd singing in a small theater. Malone's Molly was always on, manic.
See it if You love to see Beth Malone channeling her best Reba McIntire. David Aron Damane is a huge pleasant presence with a big basso voice
Don't see it if Corny musical that steal melodies from its composers other more well known work dont float your boat
See it if Terrific performance by Beth Malone & fine supporting cast with great voices elevate this rethought revival. Simple but effective staging.
Don't see it if Show slows down towards middle of act 2 but recovers with a hokey yet rousing finale that touches on contemporary immigration issues.
See it if You want a fun easy musical. Cast good, costumes interesting, very watchable.
Don't see it if You want a well written new molly brown version. This is not it. Seems as if all scenes stolen from past musicals. Too wordy. Way too long.
See it if You like musicals with great talent. You want to see some great dancing and hear some great singing and want to enjoy this performance.
Don't see it if You don't like musicals. You don't want to see a show with talented performers that sings, dances and performs very well
See it if Super independent force of a woman becomes rich and tries to fit into high society by funding charities and causes. Excellent cast.
Don't see it if 1950s era music/lyrics wasn't my thing. I assume some edits to make it less cringy for current times. Story revolves around rich people.
