    Subject: I SING
    Date: Mar 8, 2005
    Sender: Patrick O'ConnorPrevious

    Recently (5 March 05) I saw a sensational amateur production of I SING at the Theater LaB Houston. That is to say it was sensational right up to the second half of the second act when the whole show completely falls apart. If this show were only slightly rewritten it would be playing in every theater in the country but as is now not only does it fall apart the audience feels cheated and betrayed because of the high expectation of the truly glorious first act. What really should happen is Nickie and Alan and Heidi should decide to live together and they should sing about it (the pluses, many pluses, and minueses, even more minuses) and Pepper and Charlie end up together which they do and they too should sing about the pluses and minuses. One other problem the song of the first act finale doesn't make any sense. it's one of those message numbers that the audience spends all their time trying to figure out the message only to discover there isn't one. I really mean with a new ending this show would be sensation and audiences would leave the theater exalted insstead of saying to themeselves. what happened to that wonderful show.
