  1. Oh my God, you’re talking about Trip of Love. I now have to go all the way back to the Dr. Zhivago podcasts. So glad I discovered your show.

    I think the Trip of Love Playbill is really pretty and it makes me miss when shows would do more than these quick, awkward photoshops and boring title treatments. I really enjoyed seeing Trip of Love, partially for the wrong reasons, but also because I thought the majority of the performers were very talented. I agree that it doesn’t make sense but I’ll recap the “plot” for you if you want. I’ve seen it twice. Oddly, since I knew what was coming, it seemed more like a real show the second time. Hearing your recap helped me recapture the madness of seeing it the first time so thank you for that. 🙂

  2. I was not familiar with Dames at Sea when I went to see it. I went for the cast. As an Asian person, I did not find the Singapore Sue number offensive. I was prepared to find it offensive because I’d heard vague reports, but even though I was tensed and ready for it, it really didn’t bother me. I certainly found it much less troubling than similar numbers in Thoroughly Modern Millie and The Drowsy Chaperone that I think have their cake and eat it too, mocking orientalism while reveling in it. I love both of those shows and I understand the function of those songs/characters in those shows but it still made me so uncomfortable.
