This has been a big week: the Tony nominations came out, as did (at least some of) the masses for Occupy Wall Street, part II. Obviously a Friday 5 mash-up’s in order!
Here’s a list of my top suggestions for budget-busting Broadway productions tackling social issues from a populist bent. Book your tickets now, kids, because if you can’t beat the Man, you might as well deeply unnerve him with an eleventh-hour tap number. (Side note: is it just me, or does Occupy already deploy jazz hands more than the Rockettes? Just sayin’.)
Top Five Musicals for May Day
2. The Scottsboro Boys
3. Caroline, or Change
5. Les Miserables
What else would you toss in? And do you think Broadway has any place in a post-1% world? God I hope so. I’ve been practicing this time step for ages…
