Lost in the Funhouse
Broadway musicals have entered a new phase. Now if only they could get it right.
by MICHAEL FEINGOLD for the Village Voice

The Producers, The Full Monty, Hairspray, and even that vast disheartening inanity called Mamma Mia! were clear signs that the public wanted something else: human beings, embodied by actors it could love and laugh at, rather than hollowly heroic figures bellowing in spotlights; jokes and vitality and cynicism instead of pseudo-operatic pomposity; and brightly lit events it could recognize as both absurd and everyday.
