Two Gentlemen of Verona- I don't like that critics kept comparing it to Hair.

Children of Eden

Okay, I'll admit it, some of those lyrics are clunkers. I would love to know what the hell John Guare was smoking when he came up with "She said: Boom chicka chicka chicka / F*ck f*cka wucka wucka / Cock cocka wocka wocka."

Children of Eden ..
there really isnt much good about this show. the lyrics are very very bad, the music is Schwartz's worst..and thats saying soemthing next to Wicked. God is portrayed as a petulant whiny man who when he doesnt get his way starts to ---- people over or destroy everything. its just an over all bad show.

okay... next

The Rothchilds

The Rothschilds- That people are turned off by the similarities to Fiddler.

I don't like it that it wasn't a bigger hit than it was. I can't think of anything else offhand, though I am sure a deeper investigation of the book and score would reveal something more meaty. I'm just content to enjoy this show as it as for the time being.

Sweet Charity: "Baby, Dream Your Dream" encapsulates the theme of the show but is many times glanced over (or cut, as in the Shirley McLaine film)

It's a silly show. Totally underwhelming and totally pointless. Snoozefest.

On the Twentieth Century- I don't like how Coleman ripped off motifs from other composers.

It's a second rate show that was catapulted to success and popularity by a star.

SNOOPY: One Charlie Brown Musical was enough. No need for a sequel.

The songs written for the secondary couple. That show doesn't need that subplot and even if it did, Berlin could've written better songs.
