My favorite Broadway musical thus far. I saw this show a couple of years ago, and immediately fell in love. The entire cast, including Dee Snider, were amazing. I personally enjoyed the interaction the cast had with the audience. They made us feel as part of the story, or actually the party. The entire show was riveting. I prefer the musical over the movie, but heck that’s just me.
This was definitely a show like no other I have ever seen, and I’ve seen several. This show was over the edge in my eyes. Raunchy is the best word to describe The Motherf**ker with the Hat. Chris Rock, Bobby Cannavale, Yul Vázquez, Elizabeth Rodriguez, and Annabella Sciorra all starred.
I never forget my initial reaction. I was taken back with the language and hardcore portrayals of cheating, doing drugs, prison, guns, shooting, etc. that my sister had to ask me if I was okay. Ha ha. I never heard so many filthy words under one roof before or sat through a strong, heavy-duty play.
Nevertheless, I warmed up to it and within the first half hour, I was completely drawn in. I was impressed that someone on Broadway had nerve enough to write and bring such a strong topic (which does exist in our world) to Broadway and have amazing actors play it out on stage. Everyone did a fantastic job. The show itself was wonderful. This playbill is going under the most memorable wall (along with Hugh Jackman Back on Broadway; his one Man Show). ;)
