The final robe costume worth the price of admission, too bad there was no story to go with it?, Indulgent, Slow, A one hour audition for the met?, Great singing

See it if "A Charmed Life" should add (Mostly) to the title because the Diva's story did include a dear friend lost to AIDS. Somehow, no #BLM moments?

Don't see it if Not an Opera fan? And if so, U better like CARMEN cause a good chunk of the show is dedicated to it. Casting peeps for The Met call 4 comps?

“I’ve always felt I’ve lived a charmed life,” Lori Brown Mirabal says a couple of times in the play, though she never really embellishes on what’s made it so. Still, you can’t fault her for her positivity, and it’s extra-admirable considering her profession is the one that gave us the term “prima donna.”
