I agree with the site review for this, em, well-intentioned-but-obviously-lacking-effort-on behalf-of-the-creators show. I must admit I¿m not at all a fan of the whole 70¿s ¿Broadway is dead¿/ Christian musicals and ¿Hair¿ period. But while Godspell was at least sufferable, this show is a grueling task just to sit whiteness to. One must wonder: when there are so many good shows out there (Oklahoma, Fiddler..., Guys & Dolls, Anything Goes, South Pacific, 42nd Street, Les Miserables, West Side Story, etc¿), why would anyone bother recognizing the existence of, let alone buy the score of, a piece of cr@p like ~cough~ Children of Eden. The story is a pathetic and insulting (to anyone of intelligence) adaptation of the Bible, and the score is comparable to one of those summer Bible camps for elementary students. WARNING: Spend your money on some musical that has had a successful run (something with 30,000 performances) not Children of Eden (100 performances) that opened in January and closed in April of the same year.Was this review helpful?
