Tori Amos Musical Gets Mixed Reviews

The National Theatre‘s long awaited production of Tori Amos’s musical, “The Light Princess,” has opened in London to mixed reviews. (Notices are here and here and here.) The story concerns a princess who has lost her gravity, so she floats in the air, but who also lacks moral gravity. Only when she falls in love and experiences anguish does she become fully human. There has long been talk of bringing the show to Broadway: will the mixed response slow that effort?
