Not-really-a-CD Review: Tuck Everlasting (2016 Original Broadway Cast)

“A man who is fondest of suits that are jaundiced”

Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen’s musical The Burnt Part Boys is coming over to the Park Theatre later this year but their latest venture Tuck Everlasting was one of the Spring’s biggest crash and burn stories on Broadway, scarcely making two months. Based on a 1975 US children’s novel by Natalie Babbitt, it’s a horrendously twee vat of corn syrup that I have to admit I struggled to listen the minimum two times that I give cast recordings. And to be honest, I can’t think of anything constructive to say about it so I’m going to leave it there!
