Disney On Broadway

I know what you're thinking. The world's biggest Disney hater in the world doing a blog on them? I must have really lost it.Now to be honest I don't hate everything that Disney puts out. I just don't like them taking over Broadway. In the last fifteen years alone they have produced six different shows on the Great White Way. The Lion King is still running having first opened in December of 1997 while Beauty and the Beast enjoyed a thirteen year run before closing in 2007. Aida enjoyed a nice four year run and Mary Poppins while not a blockbuster has been playing since the fall of 2006.

That brings me to Tarzan and The Little Mermaid. Both shows ran for a little over a year and a half and failed to make it's investment back.I guess four out of six is better than most. Now of the six shows that Disney produced I actually saw all of them except for The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast. In case you are wondering I didn't pay for the tickets. I got them free thru work.Regardless of what I think Disney is here to stay my friends. That will never change. I guess I should be thankful because without their shows we might not sell as many tickets. That means less jobs and no more blogs from me. You wouldn't want that to happen would you? I didn't think so. Until next time theatre fans.
