Spearsical the Musical 2: Oops … We Did It Again!

 

Review


The title says it all. Britney was never quite the same after her public meltdown and Spearsical’s sequel follows in the pop star’s doomed tracks. A weary and washed-out Lucky is back, this time searching for her musical comeback amongst some stiff competition. Random appearances by Ke$ha, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Katy Perry only confuse the plot (if there really is one), and lengthy slower songs hit the snooze button on your attention span. Ke$ha stumbles around like she’s done, and so is the audience after an exhausting hour and a half of misplaced modern pop culture references. Skip the Spearsical sequel and grab a post-Fringe beer downtown instead. – Andrea Ross

    I am disappointed that Ms. Ross fails to mention the audience and their active involvement in the show as this is key, considering they paid to be there. From my seat in the front row, I heard laughter, hoots and hollers throughout, and witnessed many attendees grooving to the music in their seats. I also had the pleasure (?) of being the recipient of some eager pelvic thrusts by a masked character! The choreography and execution of “4 Minutes” alone was a highlight for me and the audience seemed thrilled at the surprise appearance of a certain superstar that rhymes with LaLa.
    I think Fringe-goers should check out “Spearsical the Musical”, grab a delicious lemonade from the friendly bartenders, and then head back in for “Spearsical the Musical 2: Oops…We did it again!”. Afterwards, definitely head to a downtown bar with friends as I am sure you will want to reminisce about pop music from your youth, not to mention how society creates unrealistic expectations for entertainers only to try like hell to tear them down… or maybe it was just me.
    Regardless, go see the show. The music great, you will laugh, and if you sit in the front, you may get a little action too!

    The presence of numerous of pop stars was the whole point. The music industry is littered with the talented and untalented alike, and everyone’s trying to get a foothold on fame and if they do, they hang on for dear life. No. Matter. What. It. Takes.

    I especially enjoyed the combination of live and digital elements, which allows the introduction of a reporter who exhibits equal parts perky and demented. Delicious! If you can’t stop yourself from following entertainment news because of the sheer absurdity of it all, you’ll really enjoy this production.
