Double Take December: PASSION

PASSION

It’s Double Take December at Musical Cyberspace! Every musical pretty much has something one likes and something one doesn’t in it. This month I’ll be listing one of each for a range of musicals, a different one each day.

Passion

Something I Like: Stehphen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Passion has a brilliant, sophisticated, moving score that really shakes you right to the core by the time you’ve heard it all the way through. A mature work, for a mature ear and a mature soul – and a truly cathartic musical.

Something I Don’t Like: I don’t like how dismissive people are of Passion. People who call the passionless or dull are either not making the effort to engage with its complexity properly or avoiding engaging with it because it cuts too close to the bone. That’s my theory, and I’m sticking with it.

Feel free to share your “double take” on Passion in the comment box!
