Stormy Weather

1 year, 3 months ago at Aug 20 22:13
Even by the already lax standards of a musical, the narrative of Stormy Weather is a wispy thing. A mere formality to string together a series of revue numbers from an all-black group of entertainers. Don’t come around here if you want typical dramatic stakes like character arcs, emotional development, or plot twists, but this normally serious hindrance wilts in the sheer power of the ensemble o... read more

“Even by the already lax standards of a musical, the narrative of Stormy Weather is a wispy thing. A mere formality to string together a series of revue numbers from an all-black group of entertainers. Don’t come around here if you want typical dramatic stakes like character arcs, emotional development, or plot twists, but this normally serious hindrance wilts in the sheer power of the ensemble of strong performers here.   I am certain that Stormy Weather would only improve in estimation if the narrative wraparound, telling the love story of Bill Williamson and Selina Rogers, was jettisoned in favor of just going straight ahead as a filmed musical revue. Luckily, someone in production noticed this, and the amount of time between musical numbers is severely limited to just a few moments” read more
