Thursday March 29, 2007 / 8:00pmBingo: The Winning New Musical
Assigned at Box Office (Limit 4)
How was your experience?
A really fun show with a strong score, although it felt formulaic. The interactive bingo parts were fun and the more "over the top bizarre" parts toward the end had us laughing quite a bit. The timing during the beginning was slow but at some point (maybe the Nurse Rached scene?), it took off and was a lot of fun and kept pace. I could see this show going over big across the U.S. if the timing could be tweaked. It was difficult to understand some of the lyrics, especially the daughter's. Overall, I think the show has great potential, but does not have the heft and substance of "Spelling Bee".
