Man!...I GET AROUND and hoped this Show would entertain big time but I felt I was SHUT DOWN...and so wanted it to be FUN FUN FUN! It has lots of potential...the set is SURFIN' USA colorful/bright, a couple great old LITTLE DEUCE COUPE cars and a great vintage T-Bird that daddy takes away... A neat ferris wheel effect during one scene...You certainly couldn't complain about the DO YOU WANNA DANCE energy from the young cast, they really give it their all and want the Show to work but...unlike Mamma Mia which I thought/hoped Surf 'might' have some similarities to, it didn't...DON'T WORRY BABY, I'm hoping the creator of 'Rock Of Ages' will DO IT AGAIN and tweak the hell out of this Show for the better. GOD ONLY KNOWS right now the two lead characters had as much appeal to me as Ken and Barbie, come on SURFER GIRL, you can do better than this! The story is simple, no surprises, HEROES AND VILLAINS, and in general...pretty weak. Boy has girl, boy leaves town. Girl hooks up with bad guy...boy gets homesick and comes home and tries to win girl back. I'm not giving anything away, there's more, but it just didn't generate any SURFIN' SAFARI for me...HELP ME RHONDA! Each scene seems to be an excuse to play another Beach Boys song...vague as it may be (the scene/reason that is) Beach Boys music...(vocals actually) are some of the hardest songs to pull off if the harmonies aren't right on. Surf gets close, but it only takes that one high part that... just doesn't quite hit it, to spoil the whole thing and...this happened a bit too many times for me.............(if you want me I'll be) IN MY ROOM. Surf could be lots of fun... Would some changes in the cast make a difference?...maybe. The two lead characters (so far...) sure didn't create any emotion inside of me. The only character in the cast that seemed 'real' to me was the ol' guy that runs the surf shop. Probably the oldest cast member, his lines and delivery were more believable than anyone else considering what he had to work with. (sorry, I'm not trying to spoil the...GOOD VIBRATIONS) Remember, this is the same theater where 'Peepshow' happens. There's a front section with small cocktail tables around the center 'catwalk'....don't think ya wanna sit there, nobody is takin' off their cloths and the view and effects will look much better further back. My night, there were only two couples seated in the front section and they moved before showtime. Then there's the upper rear...that's good. I chose 1st row, SECTION 102, ROW I, SEAT 113...$117.40 (far too much $) Surf isn't a total wipeout...I would like to think the creator of 'Rock Of Ages' will see the weak parts, fix 'em, add/delete some others and along with all those great Beach Boys songs...maybe... end up with a real fun Show...WOULDN'T IT BE NICE!
