"Jerry Likes My Corn" and I loved this show
I've been singing the praises of Spring Awakening the past few months, and I was really planning on pulling for it this Sunday at the Tonys. But now having seen Grey Gardens, I have to say, Sarah was right. This is a really great show. And while it doesn't make Spring any less fresh, I have some deep respect for Christine Ebersole's amazing work in this musical, inspired by the Maysles documentary about the Beales. Oh, and it has one of the quirkiest songs I've ever heard -- see the blog title -- fully explicated here on the TheaterMania site.
