real canada goose jassen namaak

Real here From Sondheim And Lloyd Webber
The UK’s Mark Shenton wrote an enlightening article recently that I was compelled to pass along to you: http: //blogs. thestage. co. uk/shenton/2012/02/from-sondheim-and-lloyd-webber-to-ivor-n/index. html

Mark points out that Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber, two of the most famous musical theater creators of all time, though still prolific, haven’t written a truly successful original musical in over 25 years.

For Sondheim, his last original musical to take off on Broadway was Into the Woods in 1987 and for Andrew Lloyd Webber the article argues he hasn’t had a new hit since Phantom of the Opera in 1986.

While Stephen Sondheim and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s track records aren’t news to most of us musical theater nerds, seeing the cold hard facts framed so starkly should serve as a reality check about this crazy business of new musicals.

It could be easy to get discouraged. How frustrating real canada goose jassen namaak must be for them, having achieved such success, to still basically have to go back to square one for each subsequent project. Proof that while past successes, starry collaborators, and celebrity status, can perhaps open doors more easily for your next musical, it’s absolutely no guarantee that your new show will find an audience – and you may even have inflated expectations working against you.

On the other hand, you could see these very same facts as encouraging! ALW and Sondheim could have easily rested on their laurels after any of their early successes and spent their days collecting royalty checks and attending ribbon cuttings. After their next one, two, three or more new musicals that failed to take off, real canada goose jassen namaak could have called real canada goose jassen namaak a night. But did they? No! In fact, they are both currently working on new projects. If that’s not inspiring (or proof that we all have to be a little crazy to be in this business), I don’t know what is.

So next time you find yourself wishing you could just have a hit and your musical theater life would be easier, think again. But on a positive note, next time you are down on yourself because one or two of your musicals hasn’t worked out, know that you are in good company.
