"Funny That Way"


I'd like funny some other way, thanks.

Rocky would have some "walk out humming the set" competition, except Bullets Over Broadway has a gaggle of good classic tunes. More than it needs, but it also has a bad case of "we hired this big musical star, so there has to be a big number." There's some good dancing, in actually fewer big dance numbers than you'd expect for a Susan Stroman show. But it's a bit like a non-musical play (or play with a little music) crashed into an After Midnight-type revue.

But, go if you're inclined. As I said to Thor before the show, I've only seen a few Woody Allen movies because I haven't liked the ones I have, so I'm maybe not the best judge.
